Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is awesome. FFVII Remake's excellent battle system is further enhanced, the story leaves the player (whether a veteran or newcomer to the series) intrigued to know what will happen, and there is an immense amount of content to be explored.

Tekken 8 is a natural evolution of a fantastic series.

Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising is basically a "Super" Granblue Fantasy Versus. That is, it is an updated package with all the characters so far, netcode via rollback and some new modes. If you liked the original, you'll appreciate this new game even more. Otherwise, since the basis is still the same, it is unlikely that your opinion will change.

70 / 100 - KarmaZoo
Nov 22, 2023

KarmaZoo has a proposal that in practice only works by playing with friends. It's almost impossible to complete and have fun with randoms. In the end, it's an interesting platform game, with a unique concept, but honestly it's only worth playing with acquaintances.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 is a natural evolution of the first title, bringing more modes and a noticeable graphical polish. Unfortunately, it still doesn't do enough to differentiate itself from the competition, but it's a great option for PlayStation gamers looking for a platform fighting game.

70 / 100 - VISCO Collection
Nov 6, 2023

VISCO Collection is a collection that helps preserve VISCO's gaming history. Some titles are pretty fun (Bang Bead, FlipShot, and Neo DriftOut), while others are average (Goal! Goal! Goal!, Ganryu and Andro Dunos) or lousy (Captain Tomaday).

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 improves on the original in every way: a more focused and engaging story, varied missions, a very agile traversal system, and combat on epic scales.

80 / 100 - Sonic Superstars
Oct 13, 2023

Sonic Superstars is a good hedgehog game that manages to capture the essence of the Mega Drive originals. Fun can be found in both single and multiplayer. However, the price of the package is slightly above the amount of content that is offered.

Separate Ways is a great expansion, bringing an additional campaign to one of the best titles of 2023. In addition to completely reinventing what existed at the time of the PS2, the DLC brings novelties to the gameplay and manages to deliver a complete package when we take into account the base game as well.

85 / 100 - Mortal Kombat 1
Sep 19, 2023

Mortal Kombat 1 has a fun gameplay with several options of combo routes because of the Kameos. However, the Invasions mode gets boring quickly and the final arc of the Story mode doesn't please either. The customization of the characters could be further improved after what we've seen in the other games from NetherRealm Studios and the absence of Krypta is remarkable.

60 / 100 - Firewall Ultra
Sep 11, 2023

Firewall Ultra is a simple game, with few modes at launch and that depend on a very time-consuming matchmaking. In addition, the gameplay explores little of the capabilities of VR. With the promised support, Ultra Firewall may be better in the future, but it's hard to recommend it at the moment.

The Making of Karateka is a history lesson. A round package for those who want to know the first works of Jordan Mechner. The making of part is great and bringing in the different versions is essential for preservation. However, for those who seek gameplay and do not care about this historical side, you may be disappointed that we only have basically two very short games. In addition, there are no texts in Portuguese of Brazil, which hinders the accessibility of the material.

95 / 100 - Quake II
Aug 28, 2023

Quake II is a great remaster, with content to spare and impeccable work to bring a classic back. The multiplayer is fun, especially the entire campaign in the co-op.

70 / 100 - Synapse
Jul 4, 2023

Synapse is a roguelite shooter with an interesting idea, but without much depth. With the aim of repeating the areas to become stronger and more agile, in addition to a simple plot, Synapse is worth checking out for its fun gameplay and nothing more.

Sonic Origins Plus is an interesting package in theory, but it doesn't add enough relevant content. Amy is definitely cool to be playable, but her moves are pretty simple. And Game Gear games are a good way to remember the past (even with the strange sound), but it's inexplicable not having Master System games. PS: the score reflects the entire package with the base game and not just the DLC.

Pixel Ripped 1978 is an enjoyable VR adventure with innovative gameplay. The nostalgia for Atari is explored, even if most players end up identifying only with the console itself. Unfortunately, even being developed by Brazilians, there is no localization for Portuguese.

95 / 100 - Street Fighter 6
May 30, 2023

Street Fighter 6 is another Capcom hit. It's a complete package, offering plenty of content and accessibility for every type of player. The fighting mechanics are varied, fun and take a long time to master. The World Tour mode is interesting and offers something varied for the series, even if it has some issues.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a great sequel. The story is very good (especially in the final parts) and there is a lot of optional content. The gameplay remains excellent and with many new features. The technical part, however, needs adjustments.

Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores is a great expansion, adding even more content to one of the best games of 2022. The graphics are amazing and there's a relatively large area to explore with tons of optional content. The main story, however, is short.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution is an incredibly immersive and rich post-apocalyptic experience. However, its high degree of realism is exactly one of its negative points. Another problem is that it's basically mandatory to play its predecessor. The summary presented is not enough to understand everything that happened and make you care about the characters.
