8.5 / 10.0 - Marvel's Spider-Man
Sep 3, 2018

Marvel's Spider-Man is definitely the best game about one of the most beloved character in the comics history, but despite the great efforts of developer Insomniac Games, the new adventure is not perfect, especially when it comes to boss fights, which follow the same pattern over and over, and the quality and variety of the side contents, which tend to be boring after a while. It's a shame, because the combat system and the swinging are two of the best aspects of the game, and the team should have focus on creating more original and complex side adventures, quests and activities to take advantage of the biggest features of Marvel's Spider-Man.

Detroit: Become Human is the best adventure ever created by Quantic Dream, thanks to a rich and complex story that really changes and adapts to every choice you make, allowing you to explore different paths by using the integrated storyflow, from which you can load a single checkpoint and make different choices.

9.5 / 10.0 - God of War
Apr 12, 2018

Another masterpiece available exclusively on PS4, God of War is a new beginning for the saga from Sony Santa Monica Studios. A game that offers a deep story, a great combat system and lots of RPG mechanics that adds complexity and variety to the final experience. If you own a PS4, there is no doubt: God of War is a game that you don't wanna miss.

Ten years after the original game, Burnout Paradise Remastered sends you back to the Paradise City thanks to a great porting by Stellar Entertainment, that allows you to enjoy the freedom of Criterion's racing in the 4K resolution. Unfortunately, some of the core gameplay features start to feel old if compared to much modern games such as Forza Horizon or the upcoming The Crew 2, but if you can accept those compromises you will find in this Remastered edition a great racing game to play along with your friends.

7 / 10.0 - Mulaka
Feb 26, 2018

A short but interesting experience that offers a nice combat system and some great moments while fighting the huge bosses, but the overall adventure does not feel as unique as expected. Despite that, you should really give Munaka a try to discover an old and fascinating culture such as the Tarahumara.

8 / 10.0 - Fe
Feb 19, 2018

Fe is an emotional journey, a 3D platform/adventure that will make you discover many amazing places in order to free an ancient forest from the evil Silents. While the first part of the game can be frustrating due to the lack of hints and advices from the developers, once you'll get over the sense of confusion you will find in Fe a great adventure with some epic moments that you don't want to miss, no matter what.

8.5 / 10.0 - Bayonetta
Feb 14, 2018

One of the best action game ever made, reborn thanks to the hybrid gameplay possibilities offered by Switch. This porting is capable of managing the complex combat system on a handheld console with a solid 60fps frame-rate, but to do so it has to force the global resolution to 720p, even while docked. If you never played the original game, you should definitely consider to buy it on Nintendo Switch and play along with the beautiful witch wherever you want.

8.6 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 2
Feb 14, 2018

Like the first chapter's porting, Bayonetta 2 is one of the best action game available on Switch, that despite the lack of new features is capable of offering a hardcore gameplay with a 60fps frame-rate on a hybrid console such as Switch. If you never experienced the game, you should evaluate to buy the retail version of Bayonetta 2, that will give you access to a digital code for the first game.

8 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 3
Feb 8, 2018

A huge step forward in the UFC saga, thanks to the Real Player Motion Technology used by EA to recreate more than 5,000 animations in the game. Its complex combat system allows players to think about different strategies and attack the opponent with several techniques. A game that requires patience and dedication to master its deep gameplay, especially if you want to rule in the online multiplayer modes.

Despite the lack of new contents, Onimusha: Warlords Remastered is a good way to discover one of the best hack 'n' slash games of the PS2-era, or to live again the adventure of the demon slayer Samanosuke. The remastered improves the graphics and features both a new control scheme for the new generation and a brand new soundtrack, but it also has a few technical issues and gameplay limits that could make your experience with the game definitely frustrating.

The first season of Batman - The Telltale Series comes to Nintendo Switch without any particular feature. The port itself is not bad, but of course the graphics is less polished than the other versions already available on PC and home consoles. The possibility of playing the adventure on the go is the real thing here, though the developer could have risked a bit more to create a unique experience by taking advantage of Joy-Cons and HD Rumble. Let's hope that Telltale Games could do more with the Season 2 coming to Switch in the next months.

A new beginning and a giant step forward in the Destiny franchise. But will it be enough for the high-demanding community?

The N. Sane Trilogy marks the return of one the most-beloved icon from the PlayStation era: Crash Bandicoot is back with a huge remake created by the guys at Vicarious Visions, that keeps the gameplay untouched while offering an "insane" upgrade in both graphics and audio.

9 / 10.0 - Injustice 2
May 22, 2017

Whether you are or not a big fan of DC Comics hereos and villains, you should definitely give a chance to Injustice 2, which proves what a fighter game should offer in 2017. The story of Injustice 2 is really great and offers the chance to test most of the 29 characters available on day-one, while the Multiverse is a great addition that allows players to try new challenges everyday and drop sweet loot to custom their favorite characters. The online multiplayer is great and well-balanced, and the overall experience makes Injustice 2 one of the best fighting game ever made.

With Mario Sports Superstars, Camelot brings to the Mushroom Kingdom five of the most-loved sports that 3DS users can enjoy with Mario, Luigi and lots of other well-known characters. The different sports are good, but the game seems to be fun only if you play together with your friends or via online multiplayer, due to a lack of variety in the single-player activities.

7 / 10.0 - Sea of Thieves
Jan 1, 1971

Sea of Thieves is a fascinating experience that is undermined by the lack of variety and player progression. A game that shines if played along with your buddies, but fails to engage the user if played without a group of friends.
