9.5 / 10.0 - Asgard's Wrath
Oct 12, 2019

Asgard's Wrath is one of the greatest titles produced since the birth of VR gaming, perhaps the most ambitious ever. Even its models are over the top - the last God of War is clearly quoted - but Sanzaru's game manages to build its strong personality with challenge and taste for discovery, using our double dimension - divine and terrestrial - to stage a VR show never seen before for graphical and playable details.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ion Fury
Aug 14, 2019

Ion Fury is a love letter to 90s shooters, especially addressed to Duke Nukem 3D. A well written love letter, although it could have been more varied in some parts.

8 / 10.0 - Defector
Aug 7, 2019

Are you ready to play the role of a badass secret agent? Despite some undeniable flaws, Twisted Pixel's game let you do it with style. Poor interactivity with the environment and mini-games can awaken abruptly the player from the feeling of "presence", but the variety of action and a fair degree of replayability make Defector a remarkable example of a virtual reality mix, balanced between adventure and action.

The first episode of Vader Immortal shows all the potential of this VR series: a new way to immerse in the Star Wars universe, perfectly inserted in its narrative canons. The interactive experience is very short but the level of immersion is incredible, far beyond what a simple 360-degree VR movie could ever do.

9.2 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Metro Exodus should be preservedas a species near to extinction: it is not always perfect, but overall we are facing the best story driven FPS in recent years, crafted with love, much more freedom but still impressive in its narrative, graphical and playable level of details.

A survival horror with strong adventure components that perfectly balances non-scripted AI with puzzles and a cohesive tale. [OpenCritic note: Mario Baccigalupi separately reviewed the PC (8.2) and PS4 (8.4) versions. His scores have been averaged.]

8.4 / 10.0 - Everspace
May 18, 2018

Rockfish roguelite hybrid confirms all its qualities in terms of gameplay concept, graphic features and pure fun. The epilogue remains a little bit disappointing togheter with the not so exellent enemies AI, but the core of the game is great

8.8 / 10.0 - Frostpunk
Apr 23, 2018

11 bit studios changed radically its formula from This War of Mine, and engaged in a compelling, well-written steampunk odyssey set in a frozen wasteland. The connection between gameplay and dynamic storytelling is impressive, and the result is a great experience.

7.6 / 10.0 - Impact Winter
Apr 5, 2018

The conversion of Impact Winter took advantage of a great process of polishing (applied to the PC version as well), but it did not turn the game into a masterpiece: the design flaws are still here, as well as the intricate control system and some fuzzy storytelling.

8.6 / 10.0 - Far Cry 5
Mar 30, 2018

The PC version of Far Cry 5 is, hands down, the best on the market. As usual, the more powerful your PC, the better and more eye-candy the result. Even with mid-sized computer, though, the Montana created by Ubisoft offers truly beautiful sights.
