9 / 10.0 - Death's Door
Jul 20, 2021

A few years ago Acid Nerve had already shown personality and vision with the brilliant Titan Souls, yet the step forward made with Death's Door is frankly stunning. It is very rare to see such an impressive leap between a debut work and the second game, and the fact that little more than a couple of people have been able to give life to such a memorable adventure is the most crystal clear testimony of the natural talent of the English team.

7.3 / 10.0 - Boomerang X
Jul 13, 2021

Although with a different and less fiercely hardcore disposition, Boomerang X reminded me with ill-concealed enthusiasm of that independent gem that responds to the name of Devil Daggers.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is an experience that pleases, entertains and excites, but also flows guided and within limited tracks (and I'm not necessarily referring to the rails to grind in passages from the interaction inversely proportional to the majesty of the show), without perhaps ever upsetting beyond the disturbing technical aspect.

As the title itself indicates, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury proves to be more than just the re-proposal in Nintendo Switch sauce of an exclusive Wii U not particularly lucky: the idea of inserting for once a completely new extra is very appreciable, and you find the ideas inside Bowser's Fury are not lacking at all. While the difference in tone and gameplay between the two games is quite right, the overall superiority of Super Mario 3D World over the new adventure is also evident, which ends up being an appendix or little more. The effect is that of a very solid pairing, which once again celebrates the undisputed supremacy of the Great N in the platforming field.

Inspired and bewitching, Little Nightmares II fits easily and consistently in the wake of its predecessor, intelligently and elegantly expanding the narrative of a perverse and distressing dimension, yet at the same time almost irresistible.

7 / 10.0 - The Medium
Jan 27, 2021

The Medium is a horror with fascinating potential, but translated into an experience never really ambitious, and indeed paradoxically rather limited, restrained and shallow.

It is hard to see why Microsoft has so quietly launched a very gluttonous DLC that, in its small way, it could have represented the Xbox response to sony's operation with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. In a wild race between stone idols and legendary monsters, the three hours of Hivebusters will serve to remind you why Gears is after all these years a series still so damn satisfying. Hivebusters is a must-see for all Marcus Fenix fans, and strongly recommended for anyone who wants to get closer to the saga for the first time.

7.2 / 10.0 - Call of the Sea
Dec 14, 2020

Call of the Sea is an interesting but imperfect experiment, denoted by some (legitimate) error of inexperience. In general, the feeling is that of an adventure written in a pleasant and on average enjoyable way to play, but never get to that status of small gem to discover.

8.2 / 10.0 - Astro's Playroom
Nov 6, 2020

Astro's Playroom is a tangible demonstration of dualsense's incredible potential, but also the sublime meeting point between playstation's past and future. It is difficult, if not impossible, to determine at the moment whether the admirable route traced by ASOBI Team in exploiting the features of the new PS5 controller will remain a little beaten path or the high road taken by most. In doubt, it is still worth abandoning yourself to a colorful party that will make you laugh, entertain, excite and gasp. A very first step in the new generation of those not to be underestimated, as well as the perfect showcase of gaming in sensory format that Sony would like us to live on PlayStation 5 (celebrating its origins from A to Z in the meantime).

9.2 / 10.0 - Hades
Sep 24, 2020

Hades is, bluntly, a masterpiece: a phenomenal roguelike, packed with a class and inspiration, which once again consecrates (and perhaps more than ever...) the crystalline talent of Supergiant Games.
