Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is Don't Nod's most ambitious and solid game, and despite some flaws in pacing and repetition, it remains an action-adventure loaded with feeling and with a solid combat-system.

Not everything is well-focused in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, but the rate of cringe and exaggeration in narrative and gameplay is such that is almost impossible not being entertained.

As a remake operation, that of Another Code: Recollection is perfectly successful, especially for the new visuals of Two Memories, while as graphic adventures the two games suffer a bit from the weight of years.

8.3 / 10.0 - Arizona Sunshine 2
Dec 14, 2023

Arizona Sunshine II is the classic sequel that takes everything good offered by its predecessor, improves and expands on it. There is still some roughness in the controls and the game is very linear, but if you are only interested in killing zombies with a visor on your head, you won't find better in VR market.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is not an unforgettable open world experience, but it remains a solid, action-adventure that lasts the right amount of time and is graphically spectacular, although with such a brand and with a "fuller" and focused map it could have delivered even more.

From a spin-off such as Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, we can't expect any innovation, and in fact, while enjoyable and always entertaining thanks to its varied combat-system, the game does not add much to the Yakuza series.

8.2 / 10.0 - Jusant
Nov 1, 2023

Jusant mixes adventure, exploration, a cryptic and mysterious storyline and lots of climbing sections with good results. It's not a genre for everyone, but if you've always dreamed of a mix of Grow Home, Journey and The Climb, here it is.

If you love Marvel's comics and are looking for an open-world action game full of spectacular moments and combat, then Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is definitely the perfect game for you.

Detective Pikachu: The Return only works as a large and varied "Pokémon container," but as a detective adventure it will only be able to give some satisfaction to the youngest players.

8 / 10.0 - Fae Farm
Sep 6, 2023

Despite some shortcomings in "human" relationships with NPCs and an even lower than expected challenge rate, Fae Farm is an excellent exponent of the genre thanks in part to the magic element and the emphasis on exploration.

Trine 5: A Clockwork Conspiracy does not propose anything truly innovative for the series, but what Frozenbyte proposes is solid enough and the small innovations are still pleasing.

8.8 / 10.0 - Remnant II
Aug 26, 2023

Remnant 2 takes up the good work done by its predecessor, expanding it, improving it in almost every aspect and smoothing out the rough edges.

8.7 / 10.0 - Viewfinder
Aug 1, 2023

With so many ideas in visual and level design, Viewfinder is a must-have title for any puzzle game enthusiast.

9 / 10.0 - Pikmin 4
Jul 21, 2023

Pikmin 4, despite some minor flaws, is the classic video game experience that you would never want to stop playing and remains in many ways the best episode in the series.

Excluding a slow and sometimes labored pace and only occasionally intriguing exploration, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code is a great mix of visual novel, stylish visuals and detective adventure.

8 / 10.0 - Planet of Lana
May 22, 2023

Despite a few superfluous sections and a very simplified platforming component, Planet of Lana offers engrossing and complex puzzles and a truly noteworthy mix of atmosphere and art direction.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox is undermined by some rather significant flaws in platforming and combat, but the atmosphere is remarkable and the mix of exploration and puzzles makes it an atypical (even if flawed) metroidvania.

6.7 / 10.0 - Stray Blade
May 3, 2023

Stray Blade attempts to revamp the soulslike formula by focusing on a polished narrative, a close-knit pair of protagonists, a colourful and light game world and a potentially excellent combat-system. Not everything, however, worked as planned.

6.5 / 10.0 - Redfall
May 2, 2023

In Redfall, Arkane's trademark can only be seen in places, and the end result, while not entirely awful, falls far short of what we expected from the return to the scenes of Prey's creators.

Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores is a great DLC thanks to an excellent longevity and a good amount of additions, although I would have expected more from the exploration of the new map.
