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.

8.2 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 20, 2020

In no uncertain terms, Battletoads is the surprise that at this point probably no one would have expected: the unknown Englishmen of Dlala Studios have managed to give a whole new soul to a franchise that has remained obscure to most and abandoned for over twenty-five years, presenting themselves with a loud and hilarious playable cartoon that is hard to remain indifferent to. A cheerful video game, sometimes demanding and always deliciously summery, which is loved by the innate sympathy that is capable of inspiring both in terms of atmospheres (writing, aesthetics and above all animations are really perfect) as well as in terms of gameplay, with in particular, an original and satisfying scrolling fighting game system. Of course, there are some flaws in some passages, occasional mistakes of youth are seen here and there and the unjustified absence of online multiplayer weighs heavily ... defects that in any case do not compromise at all an experience more than ever recommended, which relaunch the trio of hilarious toads as little big new entries in the green Xbox galaxy. TOADSHAMBO !!!

7.3 / 10.0 - Good Job!
Apr 8, 2020

As is Good Job! it remains an interesting and well packaged product, but ultimately also a little "light". In short, net of a not very popular price, a side dish not bad to alternate perhaps with much more structured and demanding experiences.

7.5 / 10.0 - Bleeding Edge
Mar 30, 2020

As it stands, Bleeding Edge appears to be a fascinating bet, but perhaps also a gamble on the part of Ninja Theory. Once again, the British developers did not lack the courage nor the appreciable desire to get out of the box, daring to propose something surprisingly far from their canons: the result is a strange online team fighting game with shades of MOBA, which if on the one hand it stands out for its pleasantly over-the-top character and for a satisfying depth of gameplay - but destined to emerge only by arming itself with patience and a close-knit team in tow - on the other it denotes manifest limits of content and a certain immaturity in the development. Who knows, maybe it would have made sense to postpone the release for a few months, presenting itself at launch with more substance (both in the essence of the gameplay and in everything that is exquisitely contour), or opt for a 100% free to play formula. In any case, the potential at Bleeding Edge certainly does not seem to be lacking, and indeed the basis for something encouraging can still be seen: it remains to be seen what the support for the title will be in the medium / long term, the only factor actually able to transform what today is a promise with a lot of personality in a truly noteworthy exclusive.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the worthy sequel of one of the best games ever published on Xbox One: a stellar return by Moon Studios, one that confirms the talent of a very unique software house. Too bad for some technical flaws and for a code that appears to be a lot less polished than expected: even as it is Will of the Wisps remains a game that's impossible to miss, stating once again the importance and the diversity of this franchise inside the Xbox galaxy.

Sayonara Wild Hearts will certainly mesmerize you with a stunning audiovisual trip that will take your breath away, but at the same time it can also be a limited experience in terms of gameplay and interaction. It might not even be a proper video game, but instead a glorified music visualizer built around an obscure and fascinating representation of love. It's all very pleasing and undoubtedly worth celebrating, yet not so easy to universally recommend at 20 literally cents per minute.

8.7 / 10.0 - Gears 5
Sep 9, 2019

Gears 5 is a very solid chapter in one of the sagas that truly define Xbox as a gaming platform: an episode that boldly reaffirms the attitude of the Lancer-armored squads and the talent of The Coalition as a studio ' stopping just a small step before excellence.

9 / 10.0 - Astral Chain
Aug 26, 2019

As it is Astral Chain is still a massive exclusive and one of the best video games of 2019: not bad for an absolute debut!

Metal Wolf Chaos XD is the right opportunity to recover a small cult hidden from most people, finally ready to appear in a global audience.

A quirky roguelike adventure surprisingly built around the mechanics of a rhythm game: the result is a Zelda that's surely different from the norm, yet one that has little to envy to all the other chapters (even from the most acclaimed).
