A brave vision that communicates a unique message —almost anachronic—. In a sea of contemporary explosions, noise and violence, The Last Guardian is a pause that contributes to videogames with something special despite some design annoyances.

9.3 / 10.0 - Gears of War 4
Oct 6, 2016

After this marathon analysis, we can conclude that Gears of War 4 is a great content package and, beyond the quantity, it boasts a lot of quality. We are amazed at The Coalition's ability to substantially renew each game mode in this installment. While the campaign has its ups and downs and downsides, the reality is that the experience itself feels solid and polished.

9.3 / 10.0 - INSIDE
Jul 4, 2016

Inside is original, meticulous, aesthetically flawless with its chiaroscuro, depth, photography, sound design, and gameplay. I would have loved for its mechanics to be fully developed. However, he earned a deserved place in the best of the year thanks to all his virtues. It is strange to discover enjoyment in what terrifies us and generates anxiety, but this game manages to generate emotions through not only its dark context, but with its mechanics. Few titles manage to do it. Inside succeeds in producing a fascination for the unspeakable. It is almost like the irresistible attraction to observe the forbidden, the obscene or the sacred.

Playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was difficult. Perhaps this is the most complicated review I have ever done. The game carries so much sense for the franchise and the industry that it is impossible to be indifferent to external factors. Still, it feels like the franchise has always aspired to be this installment: in each mission, a deep and complex infiltration puzzle; in each boss, a challenge; in each enemy, the opportunity to strengthen yourself; in each shot, hope; in every word, almost 30 years of relentless creativity. This game is massive, complex, challenging, deep, ambitious, innovative. More than a simple video game, it is a life of devotion to a discipline.

Nostalgia and affection for a classic like Gears of War is powerful. The aesthetics, music, and gameplay of this title largely defined the industry. Even if I put all of that aside, this is a stellar, solid, fun video game that offers tons of content and hours of healthy entertainment. If you have never played this game, the purchase is a must. If you are a veteran, I promise you will not regret returning to Sera and exploring its ruinous beauty. You will play with a smile from ear to ear when remembering so many epic moments. Thank you, The Coalition.

The title represents a good opportunity for veterans to rediscover this classic, while purists who don't know it yet may want to enjoy the original experience first. More than a reissue, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is an interpretation, an interesting revision that no player should miss. Even with a polygon mask and slight adjustments, looking underneath it reveals an unlikely adventure, a brooding glee that is unmistakably a reflection of another era of game design. Visiting Termina means leaving the epic plains of Ocarina of Time to descend into unique introspection. Welcome to the carnival.

8.7 / 10.0 - Rayman Legends
Sep 10, 2013

Rayman Legends is great because it explores pretty much every major variation on its main game system. Except for the Murfy and water scenes (we'll talk about that later), the control scheme is always the same, no matter which character you use. Hitting, jumping, gliding, and running are basic skills. In platforming cutscenes, Rayman won't get any new skills, so the development focus was mostly on level design (and it shows). What does this mean to us? That each of your worlds must be memorable and that we will perform a multitude of different tasks with the same control scheme.

Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze remains an excellent platformer and one of Retro Studio's greatest works. While all its additions may not be enough to justify a second time purchase, Tropical Freeze is a must play for all Switch owners that never the chance to experience the Wii U version.
