Mafia: Definitive Edition is a clever, stylish and faithful remake of a cult game, which 18 years later, is still powerful lesson of how to tell a story in an open world. Hangar 13 did a great job rebuilding the city and the atmosphere with a modern touch, the story is still great and compelling, while the gameplay sometimes feels a little bit too old.

7 / 10.0 - NBA 2K21
Sep 14, 2020

NBA 2K21 is a solid update of NBA 2K20... but with a strange and unpredictable twist. The new shooting meter is made for online competition and, in the end, follows the metagame rather the basketball flow. Maybe it's good for the pro gamers, but it feels unbalanced and frustrating for the bastketball lovers.

Easy Days Studios strived to achieve a great and realistic control system for Skater XL, and they nailed it. On the way to get it, though, they forgot to build a proper and fun game around it.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of the New Champions is a heartful love letter to the masterpiece of Yoichi Takahashi. Despite some flaws, such as a very clumsy progression system and some naive design choces, the game is fun to play, it feels like to be in the anime series, has a great potential online and the chance to create custom team and custom players is fan service at its best.

8.1 / 10.0 - Project CARS 3
Aug 24, 2020

Project CARS 3 says goodbye to the ambition of being a full sim and drives fast to a safe simcade haven, made of an old-style career mode, car porn and linear progression. It works, it's a fun solid experience and in multiplayer even shines, but somehow the new identity struggles a little bit to find a proper balance.

8 / 10.0 - Descenders
Aug 21, 2020

Descenders is an essential experience of arcade racing, inspired by the great 90s classics, which relies on a crazy sense of speed and adrenalinic gameplay. It may be a little bit rough in terms of visuals, but it's hectic and fun.

Fall Guys is a crazy and cozy take of the battle royale concept. Mediatonic did a brillaint job to create a social platform with 11 hectic event, with the classic "easy to learn, hard to master" party gameplay. If the British studio will keep to support the game with new contents, it has the chance to become a proper classic.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ghost of Tsushima
Jul 14, 2020

Ghost of Tsushima is a beautiful love letter to the chambara and atmospheres of feudal Japan, but it is also a confused open world, which alternates fun moments and a fascinating style with sensational naivety.

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.
