Super Mario Odyssey is without a doubt one of the best games of recent years and probably of the franchise. Great gameplay mechanics, an outstanding number of worlds and amazing graphics are the ingredients of this masterpiece.

The Last of Us 2 is a masterpiece that not only manages to stand toe to toe with the first entry, it even surpasses it. The story of TLOU2 introduces a narrative concept which is very different from what we are used to, and it keeps on surprising us again and again. Furthermore its landscapes, gameplay and visuals will forever remain with the players as the highest expression of videogames ever achieved on the PlayStation 4.

‎The same game we saw on PS4 but taken to the next level thanks to the graphic power of PS5 and some interesting additions that bring even more to Kojima's work.‎

9.9 / 10.0 - God of War
Apr 12, 2018

God of War is an excellent game that has evolved and with a great quality in every aspect. The game feels more mature, profound and solid than we have ever seen in the saga. Its gameplay is still dynamic and its story will keep us in the edge of our seats from beginning to end. However, it lacks magic in some moments and has a few repetitive bosses, which does not allow this game to reach the perfect score.

9.7 / 10.0 - Death Stranding
Nov 1, 2019

Death Stranding is one the best games to be found in PS4. Kojima-san delivers an open world in which we have to represent a bridge between the narrative of the game and other players in order to keep moving forward as part of a world that needs us. The game introduces characters that keep on evolving until we reach an ending for the ages through a story told like very few would be able to. Death Stranding knows how to toy with our emotions, and it manages to arise anguish, tension, solitude, sorrow, joy and provides a conclusion that completely stuns us. The end is only the beginning.

9.5 / 10.0 - Marvel's Spider-Man
Sep 2, 2018

Marvel's Spider-Man is one of the best exclusive games for the PS4 and one of the best games in 2018 so far. Its world has managed to surprise us due to the huge amount of content it possesses as well as because of its funny and deep gameplay. Finally, its visual level is movie-like and keeps the player engaged by means of a great story.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is an outstanding game that achieves the unexpected: to makes us forget about Nathan Drake. However, its narrative and plot leaves us with more questions than answers.

9 / 10.0 - Tell Me Why
Aug 27, 2020

In conclusion I can be very clear about Tell me Why. This new title by Dontnod will undoubtedly delight all those who have enjoyed previous works of both the studio and the genre. It is a much more adult game that tackles complex topics of great interest in today's society, so it may personally be much easier to fit in with the audience for these works. It is even a great opportunity to introduce you to the genre, because Tell me Why is as accessible as it is spectacular.

‎Mario Golf: Super Rush is undoubtedly one of the best installments of recent years. It is able to reward players who opt for traditional golf of all deliveries and at the same time innovate with new game modes that bring more dynamism and fun for those who may not be so familiar with golf. In addition the fun is multiplied in the online modes or with the local co-op for up to 4 players.‎

‎I always demanded a lot, they always demanded a lot from me. That made me among other things found this website from scratch, from my room when I was just 18 years old. But as you grow older, if you're lucky, you learn. In this last year I learned many things that make the person who analyzed the base game very different from the one who writes about this Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut today. Learn from mistakes, learn from failures, and learn to apologize. This text is my apology to the game and to myself.‎

9 / 10.0 - Tales of Arise
Sep 8, 2021

‎Tales of Arise is the best bet of the year as far as JRPGs are concerned. A title that will make you fall in love with a story and characters with which you are going to empathize, a correct progression system, fun combats, attractive main missions (some secondary not so much), optional events, attractive graphics ... I think more needs to be said.‎

9 / 10.0 - FIFA 22
Sep 27, 2021

‎I am very happy with this new installment. FIFA 22 introduces us to the biggest gameplay change for years to bring more realism to a game mode that although it does not need it, if it brings it closer to the sport from which it is nourished. Whether the changes are positive or negative will also help the time and opinion that is formed throughout the season. But that we have to learn again to play and to look for ingenuity and strategies with which to succeed again in the game modes I see something positive.‎

9 / 10.0 - Sifu
Feb 6, 2022

‎In summary I can tell you that without me being a big fan of the beat 'em up genre I can not stop recommending this game. Not only for its excellent staging and for its original progression system. If not for being a title where you yourself are your greatest enemy and where it is possible that you get hooked to want to improve and improve until you become a master with the command. As with souls, you feel good when you manage to eliminate a boss or complete an area without suffering damage as you had planned. The word is gratifying. The game is Sifu.‎
