8 / 10.0 - Sea of Solitude
Jul 5, 2019

Sea of Solitude is a game that, despite some flaws in its gameplay, gets to the players' hearts. Jo-Mei Games aims for the hearts and gets it just right, offering an experience that can trully make the players suffer in a heartwarming and, sometimes, even necessary way.

9.2 / 10.0 - Outer Wilds
Jun 17, 2019

Outer Wilds is one of the greatest surprises we have received. A game that mixes exploration with a Groundhog Day-like scheme and a charismatic narrative to give, as a result, something truly unique. A hidden gem that everyone should try.

Castlevania Anniversary Collection offers almost a dozen awesome games in just one pack. However, these are just ports to modern platforms and, if you compare Konami's work with what other franchises like Crash bandicoot, Spyro or Resident Evil have achieved with their remakes, Castlevania just falls behind.

Elsweyr is another great chapter for The Elder Scrolls Online. It doesn't include anything revolutionary, but with the new Necromancer and the Elsweyr map it's more than enough to keep ESO's fans entertained for more than a dozen hours.

8.7 / 10.0 - Void Bastards
May 29, 2019

Void Bastards is a fun and fresh mix between classic first-person shooter and modern roguelikes. Focusing on giving the player more problems than punishments, Blue Manchu has crafted a game that is fun from the beginning to the end. Furthermore, its aesthetics and graphics are simply gorgeous. One of the greatest surprises of 2019 so far.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is a well crafted, classic adventure that offers a solid story with charismatic characters. However, it all goes wrong during the final chapters, when the game loses its head, the story becomes violent nonsense and the gameplay turns out to be highly frustrating.

8 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 13, 2019

A brainless and crazy adventure that pulls brute force to sneak into the most fun of recent years. A success in capital letters of Bethesda, id Software and Avalanche Studios.

7 / 10.0 - Weedcraft Inc
May 12, 2019

Weedcraft Inc is a good management sim, but fails to deliver a message, for or against, about marijuana and its social and economical consequences. A lost chance that could have been way more than just a good game.

8.5 / 10.0 - Descenders
May 11, 2019

Descenders is a fun and challenging mix between arcade and roguelike genders with freeride as the perfect excuse. High speed, risky tricks and an infinite amount of procedural tracks are the pillars of one of the best surprises of 2019 so far.

8.5 / 10.0 - Anno 1800
Apr 18, 2019

Anno 1800 is the best entry in the series to the date. A game that can be huge and complex while not overwhelming to the player. A true love letter to the genre that every fan of city-builders and strategy games should play.

8 / 10.0 - Tropico 6
Mar 28, 2019

Tropico 6 is a safe bet. A sequel that has almost no innovations but manages to feel fresh and funny from the start. El Presidente is back, as good as he has ever been.

A game absolutely essential for anyone who has enjoyed minimally the previous works of FromSoftware, but also for those who want to take the step with the study and have not dared; a masterpiece in every rule. Thanks, FromSoftware; Thanks, Miyazaki.

8.5 / 10.0 - Unruly Heroes
Feb 26, 2019

Unruly Heroes is a surprise, one that we had not seen coming and that makes the game one of those titles that, without getting too noisy, could perfectly sneak into the lists of many favorites at the end of the year.

7 / 10.0 - Conarium
Feb 12, 2019

Conarium offers a game with a extremely simple gameplay that relies completely on its narrative aspect. In spite of some flaws, this reimagination of a lovecraftian world is visually stunning and able to catch the players' attention from the very beginning and retain it through the whole game.

Sundered comes to Switch and Xbox One with the Eldritch Edition, a revision of the game that doesn't include lots of changes but it does some fine additions like local co-op. If you liked Sundered back in 2017, this is a good excuse to come back to it in a brand new platform!

9.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 13, 2018

GRIS is a true piece of art because it isn't only beautiful, but also meaningful. A game with excepcional design that, despite some minor flaws, will definitely get to your heart and make you feel. This is the closest to poetry that any videogame has ever come!

7.5 / 10.0 - Cattails
Dec 2, 2018

Cattails is a big surprise. A game that initially looks extremely simple but that deep down hides lots of mechanics, systems and high quality content that can keep us playing for dozens of hours. Despite some flaws, it's an easy-to-recommend experience!
