Marcello Paolillo's Reviews

Scrive di videogames e cinema. E vita vissuta. Pavo non è il suo nome anagrafico; è il suo nome vero.
7.5 / 10.0 - Helldivers II
Feb 19, 2024

Helldivers 2 is a fun multiplayer co-op shooter clearly inspired by Starship Troopers, and that's not too bad. Some server issues (which will be resolved eventually) and good - but not outstanding - graphics make Arrowhead Game Studios' game a certainly well-crafted title, but just nothing more.

Suicide Squad is a flawed game, a partial disaster for every Batman fan and for anyone who doesn't digest the Game as a Service (GaaS) structure that Kill the Justice League imposes.

UFO Robot Grendizer: The Feast of the Wolves is 100% pure nostalgia for all those born and raised in the 1970s and 1980s. Unfortunately, pad in hand, the game is mediocre, between technical problems and a gameplay redundancy.

The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is overshadowed by the name it carries: Free Range Games have indeed managed to recreate the atmospheres that Tolkien's fans will love but, in terms of gameplay, the game fails to shine as it should.

7.9 / 10.0 - Sonic Superstars
Oct 13, 2023

Sonic Superstars takes the blue hedgehog back to his retro 2D roots, once again: so, if you're a super nostalgic gamer, it's a good title, but don't let the classic appearance fool you, 'cause the game is also fresh and modern.

7.8 / 10.0 - The Crew Motorfest
Sep 19, 2023

With The Crew Motorfest, the Ubisoft franchise finds new vitality, primarily thanks to a proudly arcade-styled driving system that also embraces online challenges.

Despite being a "minor" game, Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is the best possible return for a franchise that has certainly been historic and that remained silent and quiet for many years, but that has still a lot to say.

9.3 / 10.0 - Baldur's Gate 3
Aug 21, 2023

Baldur's Gate 3 is an epic game, not so much for any individual element, but rather for the sum of its parts. The result is certainly what fans have been waiting for for far too many years. Great job, Larian.

Despite some flaws at its day-one, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is an enjoyable experience on PC and this port is far from the issues we recently experienced on the PC release of The Last of Us - Part I.

Harmony: The Fall of Reverie is a visual novel with an unexpected depth, perhaps the Don't Nod's truly artistic videogame.

Aliens Dark Descent is a good real time strategy game set in the Alien universe and equipped with some winning ideas that are hard to overlook, such as the feature of permanent death. It's not gonna become the next XCOM, but it's a pretty enjoyable RTS nonetheless.

9 / 10.0 - Diablo IV
Jun 5, 2023

The return of the queen of darkness, as seen so far, seems to be no better than this.

System Shock Remake is a solid sci-fi first person shooter, although it does not go beyond the boundaries drawn by the first and immortal chapter, released in 1994.

7.5 / 10.0 - LEGO 2K Drive
May 23, 2023

LEGO 2K Drive is a good racing/open world, where imagination is the only limit. Too bad for a certain underlying monotony.

The Last of Us Part I, on PC, is a broken game. We are not talking about the qualities of the title itself – which will always remain those of an undisputed masterpiece – but about the way in which a product of this magnitude has been converted to a personal computer. In the face of this, if you feel the need to relive the adventure of Joel and Ellie, our advice is to turn to the PS5 edition. In case you are not happy owners of a Sony console, you would better wait for the ritual patches, which – we are sure, but it will still take time – will fix the Naughty Dog title on PC, as it should be.

Despite reminding us of carefree years, in which video games were experienced in a significantly different way, The Legend of Dragoon is not the gem of JRPGs forgotten over time. The "Sony Final Fantasy" is in fact still a title too derivative, which has from its some creative flair here and there, lost in a sea of banality due to main characters without charisma, a plot overall really bland and a soundtrack certainly not very incisive. A bad game? Not at all. Only, not the great immortal classic that many remember.

Unscored - Returnal

In this PC port, the game features all the good things that made it stand out on PS5.

7 / 10.0 - High on Life
Dec 18, 2022

Despite being often repetitive, High On Life manages to impress with off-the-wall humor from the creator of Rick and Morty.

Need for Speed Unbound is a good mix of cartoon characters, graffiti and frantic racing, but nothing more.

Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales on PC is the same, excellent game seen and played two years ago on PlayStation 5 consoles, plus the usual boost offered by the potential of your PC gaming: beautiful to see, with some uncertainty on the frame rate side that will undoubtedly be corrected in the coming weeks with the usual ritual patches, the game suffers from a certain basic repetitiveness, as well as being 'only' a more of the same of the previous Marvel's Spider-Man. Wearing the tights of the Spidey of Harlem is in any case an experience to live, especially if you missed it on PS5.
