8.7 / 10.0 - Katana Zero
Apr 24, 2019

Katana Zero is a fast paced action game which shines thanks to its smooth, brilliant and clever gameplay, while a surprisingly good writing gives to the game an unexpected depth. It's a brand new take on the classic genre mechanics, made even cooler thanks to a lovely art style and a powerful soundtrack.

8.7 / 10.0 - Outer Wilds

Above all, is a place worth to explore and it's perfectly integrated into the time loop structure of the game.

8.7 / 10.0 - Nier: Automata
Mar 5, 2017

This new game from Platinum Games is far from perfect: it's raw, complex, sometimes even too challenging, and yet it's almost an authentic masterpiece. The unique vision of Yoko Taro, together with the strong personality of the characters, the deep and ever-changing gameplay, yield a real gem in the videogame landscape.

8.7 / 10.0 - FIFA 18
Sep 29, 2017

FIFA 18 improves the previous game in every aspect, with the Frostbite engine which takes animation and physics to a brand new level of quality. The gameplay is fun and lets you play a wonderful offensive football, while the new full manual defense is quite harsh to manage. Overall, the game offers a huge and deep football experience, thanks to a solid single player (with the new Career mode and the awesome second season of The Journey) and endless multiplayer action.

8.7 / 10.0 - Project CARS 2
Sep 17, 2017

Project CARS 2 is still a rough diamond, but with a couple of patches Slightly Mad Studios could unleash all the potential of a real racing sim gem. Out of the box, anyway, the game offers one of the best race experiences on the market, with a great driving model which is amazing, played both with a joypad and a racing wheel. Sometimes the AI is still too aggressive and hits too hard on the throttle even when it should not, and the Rallycross experience is quite clumsy, but overall, with this great offer of tracks and cars, if you love to race in every possible weather condition and you want to feel the real meaning of bagarre, Project CARS 2 is definitely your brutal, physical and thrilling racing game.

Under the disguise of a traditional point and click adventure, The Red Strings Club shows us once again the ability of Decostructeam to use videogames to explore the human soul. The story is a pretty standard cyberpunk tale, but the "alcohol system" during conversations at the bar is amazing, and the moral choices are intriguing and demanding.

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

8.6 / 10.0 - FIFA 22
Sep 27, 2021

FIFA 22 is the most interesting and deep entry in the series from years to date, thanks to its new physics, AI and level of details. FIFA 22 gives players a game finally balanced, where defenders have the same power of attackers. The spectacular and televised identity of the franchise, though, is always the same, but this comes as a silent revolution which, if not muted after a couple of match in the name of metagame and pro gaming, it could be a great start for the future.

Football Manager 2022 is a chapter of consolidation, which capitalizes on last year's revolution. Sports Interactive has worked hard to improve the game engine even more, with brilliant animations and a brand new AI, which has a strong impact on certain game situations, such as pressing and occupying half spaces. The introduction of the Data Hub and small changes to the interface makes Football Manager 2022 the umpteenth excellent chapter of the series, which for the occasion also lands on Xbox Game Pass.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ride 4
Oct 5, 2020

Ride 4 is one of the best motorcycle racing game ever. Visually great and superb in terms of handling, Milestone did a great job delivering a fantastic experience on the track. The career is a little bit underwhelming in terms of design, but the game is still great to play.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is like having an arcade at home, filled with joy, memories and a brilliant take on classic beat'em up. It's not perfect, it doesn't have huge amount of contents, it's never too original but well, Tribute Games take on Ninja Turtles is simply fun to play and stunning to admire. Good alone, great with friends, it's a love letter to arcade gaming without stressint too much on the nostalgia effect.

8.5 / 10.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 27, 2022

NBA 2K23 is one of the best entry in the series so far, thanks to its devout tribute to the story of the sport and a few gameplay innovations. ERA MyNBA e the Jordan Challanges represent the best example of sport digital storyitelling in the world of videogames, while MyTeam and MyCareer suffer from the usual monetization policy, even if The City is far more engaging than the last year. On the court NBA 2K23 is a solid basketball experience, with a new shooting system that feels simple and consistent.

8.5 / 10.0 - Gorogoa
Jan 19, 2018

Gorgoa is an elegant piece of art, but also a unique journey through a wonderful surreal world. Jason Roberts puts the player in his own lifetime puzzle, and finding a way out requires to look everything from a brand new fascinating perspective. Maybe the journey is too short, but it's definitely worth a ride.

The perfect mix between two great puzzle games, much more enjoyable in multiplayer than in single player.
