Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is still a good game, thanks to its unique style and a compelling, slow, fascinating wierd-western narration. The charming adventure of the Stranger it's a manifesto of the most ambitious visions of early 2000s and, despite some technical flaws and some naive choices, it's still surprisingly fresh and elegant. The Switch porting could have been slicker and better, because framerate issues and clumsy controls in a remastered in 2020 are not acceptable anymore.

8.6 / 10.0 - Football Manager 2020
Nov 14, 2019

Football Manager 2020 brings together all the little changes made in the last two years taking everything to a brand new level of depth and accuracy. The management part of the game is quite perfect, crystal clear and the new club vision system works really great. On the pitch the situation is still changing and if the idea of the extreme fluidity of modules and tactics is excellent, Sports Interactive needs to balance the situation with a couple of patches. The potential is huge, but to see it fulfilled for real we need to wait the winter transfer window.

7.8 / 10.0 - Need for Speed Heat
Nov 8, 2019

Need for Speed Heat wakes up back the series from the nightmare and it's just like a greatest hits of the most iconic episodes of the franchise. Ghost Games did a great job in terms of gameplay and concepts, but Palm City is bloated of filler events and the progression isn't smooth enough. Anyway, the night races are great and the free tuning is back. If you are driven by Underground and Most Wanted nostalgia, Heat is definitely your game.

8.6 / 10.0 - WHAT THE GOLF?
Oct 10, 2019

What the golf? is probably the funniest game of 2019. The concept of transforming everything in golf is amazing and the game mechanics are simple, fresh and entertaining. Fun, lighthearted and addictive, it's perfect for quick runs, coffee break and nights of relaxed gameplay.

8 / 10.0 - John Wick Hex
Oct 8, 2019

Fun and entertaining, John Wick Hex hits the target and successfully transforms the hectic action of the movie saga in a brilliant boardgame-like strategic game with a great level design and an intriguing twist. The time management mechanic is crucial, intense and demanding, but quite fair and when dominated give a lot of satisfaction. Sometimes the difficulty curve is not well balanced and, overall, it lacks of the last touch to shine, but it's a solid good game, made with style and care.

8.4 / 10.0 - FIFA 20
Sep 23, 2019

FIFA 20 looks like another step up for the FIFA franchise, even if probably not so wide and brave as we could expect. Anyway, gameplaywise the new physics, the slower pace and a solid 1 on 1 defense open a whole new world in terms of approach and styles of play. The very new game mode Volta brings the street soccer back to videogames and it's simply a love letter to the spirit of football lived as fun.

8.8 / 10.0 - NBA 2K20
Sep 13, 2019

NBA 2K20 is pure magic on the playground. The new physical model, the impact of the new defensive system and the fine tuning of the gameplay is something valuable which give to basketball lovers endless possibilities. On the other side, the new GM mode is very disappointing and 2K business model for MyTeam is still questionable. The good news is that microtransations are quite useless in MyCareer mode, which thanks to King James work shines again to its original beauty.

8.2 / 10.0 - Children of Morta
Sep 6, 2019

Children of Morta is a fun but derivative, stylish and elegant story driven roguelite. Although the setting is quite usual, the story of the Bergsons family is heartwarming and moving, and that makes this game quite unique.

8.2 / 10.0 - My Friend Pedro
Jun 25, 2019

Put in a blender Matrix, Max Payne, kung fu movies, Shoot'em up, rag doll animations... and a lot of bananas. Then, freeze in a run & gun stencil. Serve chilled. It's not the perfect mix, but it tastes so good.
