The Devil in Me still fails to make the big leap among the greatest champions of the genre, but as a narrative adventure with a horror background it works well.

8.2 / 10.0 - Among Us VR
Nov 11, 2022

Virtual reality is not new to the world of Among Us, but this official VR version still makes a good impression, even if at the moment it is a bit stingy with contents.

Apart from some nice insane gimmicks and a valuable graphic-artistic sector, New Tales from the Borderlands is far from the levels of its predecessor.

7.6 / 10.0 - Metal: Hellsinger

Metal: Hellsinger is a raw and old-style FPS with a frantic rhythm mechanics that make the rhythmic-musical element a valid support for an otherwise derivative gameplay.

6.3 / 10.0 - Scathe
Sep 9, 2022

Scathe has everything you can expect from a DOOM/DOOM Eternal emulator, but it has several structural flaws that make it a hellish FPS in which you shoot well but you don't have much fun.

The excellent gunplay and the good RPG features are the best elements that Gearbox has created in this weird-yet-great Borderlands fantasy spin-off. While not flawless, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands can be enjoyed in 20+ hours, even if it can become boring if approached in single-player mode.

7.8 / 10.0 - Tunic
Mar 16, 2022

Tunic manages to take something (obviously on a smaller scale) from Zelda, Dark Souls and Death's Door, resulting in a challenging and fascinating action-adventure even if it lacks any truly original ideas.

7.3 / 10.0 - Shadow Warrior 3
Feb 28, 2022

Shadow Warrior 3 is a fast, spectacular and over-the-top arena shooter (with bland platforming sections) and, on this front, it works very well. Don't ask for anything more, though.

8 / 10.0 - Ocean's Heart
Feb 10, 2022

Ocean's Heart is an excellent tribute to the Zelda era on SNES, but it also knows how to shine with its own light both in the pleasure of exploration and in the narrative tone.

As a standalone DLC, Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem lasts the right amount of time and if you love rude and ignorant run & gun shooters, you will also love this hilarious trip to Siberia.

8.2 / 10.0 - GTFO
Jan 10, 2022

GTFO is a horror co-op experience not for everyone, but if you like very tactical shooters with a strong stealth component, play it safe.

Beyond a Steel Sky brings us back to Union city with more modern gameplay, but with the spirit of an old-fashioned graphic adventure.

The shift of the series to an open world formula is a bit of a missed opportunity, but as a detective adventure Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One works well both in terms of writing and gameplay.

Bright Memory: Infinite is negatively affected by a very limited longevity and a marked underlying linearity, but the combat system and the graphic sector significantly rebalance the situation.

7.3 / 10.0 - Unplugged
Oct 24, 2021

Unplugged is not the killer application that everyone expected, but as a rhythm game based on hand tracking and air guitar it's a game to be seriously considered.

8.4 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 4 VR
Oct 22, 2021

Resident Evil 4 VR is a new (and at times exhilarating) way to relive a classic from 16 years ago with all that VR can bring to a first-person action-horror.
