9.8 / 10.0 - Half-Life: Alyx
Mar 28, 2020

Valve selects the best features of VR action games and takes them to another level. Half-Life: Alyx is not innovative in choosing what is needed for the perfect virtual reality experience – between interactivity of the environment, gestural use of firearms or environmental puzzles – but it is in putting together everything in the style of Half-Life. The kind of first person game that made the series famous, and forever changed the action adventure into a "before and after Gordon Freeman", returns to linear origins without genres contamination, becoming an immersive sim only for what falls within our view, or what we can physically accomplish in a crazy City 17. Masterful.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is, overall, a great VR zombie survival game. Its strengths are not constant in all aspects, even from a technical point of view, but the good challenge and the articulated structure make it a must for fans of the genre.

8 / 10.0 - Still There
Dec 4, 2019

Apart from a few problems of readability for the puzzles elements, Still There is an extremely bright, challenging, "tactile" point-and-click, which manages to gracefully tell a story of atonement, torment, dramatic but at the same time light, ironic, always ready to throw the right inspired quotation.

Blacksad: Under the Skin is an adventure that moves away from the classic point and click structure, but it's far from perfect in the ambitious game design. That said, Pendulo Studios game is pleasant to play and overall unmissable by fans of the original comic.

8.4 / 10.0 - Arise: A simple story
Dec 2, 2019

Arise: A Simple Story is a puzzle platform game with a soul. It's a beautiful and touching trip through the emotions of the protagonist and the player. Even if short and without words, Arise can say a lot to the heart.

The Sims 4 Discover University involves you to play and play again with your Sims, without ever getting bored. The many elements introduced, from PHD to careers, passing through most goliardic events, are able to create a self-contained chapter in the life of our Sims, clearly satisfying the most fierce fans of the franchise. Cosmetic elements are not so many, but careers and PHD offer a proper entertainment, creating a great play experience, similar to the old expansions.

8.6 / 10.0 - Just Dance 2020
Nov 16, 2019

Just Dance 2020 will ignite your parties and make you dance until exhaustion. It is so immediately fun that it is easy to overlook the issue of track discoverability and the lack of a proper story mode.

8.8 / 10.0 - Football Manager 2020
Nov 14, 2019

Football Manager 2020 is another Sports Interactive title packaged to the smallest detail, almost perfect and optimized in all aspects. However, its structure is starting to need updating.

9 / 10.0 - Stormland
Nov 13, 2019

At the moment I spent about twelve hours among the peaks and plateaus that pop up in the clouds of Stormland, fighting the robotic threats of the "Tempest", and I think I will spend as many in the coming days. Contents of this Oculus exclusive by Insomniac Games promise to be infinite, they are not in fact – or, at least, their variety has a precise limit, even in the procedural generation after the end of storymode – but it does enough to be loved by video games sci-fi fans and, in general, those who enjoy approaching open world settings with great freedom of action, often exellent in its concepts and pleasantly in the boundaries of emergent gameplay.
