8.5 / 10.0 - In Death
Jul 23, 2020

Both versions of In Death - VR PC systems or Oculus Quest - keep the main strengths of the game, in the form of an "otherworldly" archery roguelite which is not afraid to raise the bar of difficulty in virtual reality. As in other cases, the developers of Sólfar Studios have swapped the best visual performance of the PC edition (for Rift, Rift S, Vive and Index) with the freedom offered by the all-in-one nature of Quest, in a game where the charisma of the setting still comes before the graphic details. The exploration progresses slowly and this lacks a bit of variety, but overall fun is guaranteed.

8.6 / 10.0 - Phantom: Covert Ops
Jun 26, 2020

The idea of ​​this exclusive Oculus stealth VR action is the intriguing and truly simulative ones - as it was in the sci-fi field for Lone Echo - capable of justifying the "only" tracing of the head and hands directly with the structure of the game and its environmental context, behind enemy lines with a military kajack equipped to advance and strike silently. If played on Rift S, the parallel design for Quest is all too evident, especially at a polygonal level, and clearly the variety of the action stops at some point, but the great atmosphere, the good level of challenge, the intelligent writing of the plot and a well thought out length (one night in real time, in substance) make Phantom Covert Ops a VR title however highly recommended.

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.

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.
