Overwhelmed by the usual fate of melancholy and study of the classics, it is easy to be enchanted by the retro-summer of Capcom. Dozens of games, lots of good choices and a system that works. Although it is not clear why change the name and arcade, compared to the first Arcade Stadium.

8.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Origins
Jun 23, 2022

For those who were there and for those who were not there and are there today: Sonic Origins is the best collection of the classic chapters of the series and the best way to play them (beyond the 16-bit versions, of course!).

Fans of the time and scholars should not miss this concentration of quirks and excellent gameplay. Between options, modes and extras, however, more could and should have been done.

Mario Strikers Battle League Football can be one of the most frantic and exhilarating games on Switch, but it also suffers from its lackluster AI and it really needs more communication tools for its online modes.

8 / 10.0 - Rogue Legacy 2
May 12, 2022

Playing Rogue Legacy 2 is almost always a pleasure, except when... it is no longer. At that point it depends on how much the semi-masochistic flame of the roguelike burns in you. Nice, but it could have been balanced better (and, perhaps, in the future it will be).

Nintendo Switch Sports is a funny game for the whole family. Sports selection could have been wider and bolder, just like Wii Sports Resort, but as a light-hearted party game, it still works fine.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is one of the best games in Kirby's history. The renewal is limited, but everything works well and there is a desire to feel important and to live a "real" adventure that they have rarely found in the story of the pink hero.

9.1 / 10.0 - Metroid Dread
Oct 6, 2021

With its slick gameplay and the excellent world design, Metroid Dread stay true to the franchise staples. Even if E.M.M.I.s could have been better integrated in the gameplay, this is still one great, new, entry in the beloved Nintendo saga.

WarioWare is back at square one with a brand new, funny chapter that re-elaborates the original concept, with a multi-player and multi-characters twist.

Chicory teach everyone else how to tackle some real issues about our society and, ultimately, our life. But its gameplay lacks that spark that made Wandersong great.

Ratchet & Clank: Drift Apart is a visual masterpiece and a joyful game, that unfortunately fails to reinvent itself and is a bit too predictable.

9 / 10.0 - Returnal
Apr 29, 2021

Housemarque delivers an unforgettable experience: Returnal is an intoxicating action game that thrives on its design and aestethic.

4.7 / 10.0 - Balan Wonderworld
Mar 30, 2021

Balan Wonderworld is a dull game and a boring experience in a lackluster world.

One hell of a compilation, with new challenges and lots of customization options. But Capcom should let us buy the games one by one also.

Simple and immediate, beautiful to see and fun even in multiplayer, Super Mario 3D World is the "what if" of the history of Super Mario. But with obvious limitations compared to Super Mario Odyssey and the other chapters in 3D. Bowser's Fury tries to beat new paths, without avoiding a few slips.

Oct 28, 2020

One unforgettable experience, that unfortunately comes too soon to an end. But still, this is one journey everyone should embark on.

Nintrendo packed some truly unforgettable classics in a single pack. And forgot to celebrate them the way they deserved to.

7.9 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 20, 2020

The return of Battletoads is a surprising and carefully crafted game in many ways. But the desire to do too much makes him lose lucidity and ends up watering down an adventure in itself too short.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons change the game in a lot of subtly but meaningful ways, giving it more depth, freedom and a better flow.

9.1 / 10.0 - Luigi's Mansion 3
Oct 28, 2019

Many ghosts, many settings, many new ideas and the usual lightness of the series: Luigi's Mansion 3 is the best chapter and is yet another great game for Switch.
