65 / 100 - Shenmue III
Jan 8, 2020

Shenmue 3 is a game created for fans that have been expecting a new title for almost 20 years. Although certain elements were modernized, such as smoother controls and graphics, the progression of the story and the overall structure returned to being as slow as it was in Shenmue I. In fact, the two parts that exist in the game are very similar in structure - it seems that you play it twice. The combat system, which now has RPG elements, doesn't look very good either. It is not a horrible game - far from it, but after waiting all this time we would like to see a natural evolution in its mechanics or story, and not the same thing again.

Iceborne is basically what we expect from an expansion. It has a new region to explore, a lot of monsters and a consistent endgame. It's the perfect excuse to spend another hundred hours in one of the best games Capcom has offered in this generation.

Life is Strange 2 delivers a strong message and it's impossible for you not to feel some emotions while playing through the five episodes. Nevertheless, the story is not as interesting as the first game, most characters are not memorable and above all: the character we control (Sean) has no powers (only his brother has). That is, we play in a passive way, guiding Daniel. The mechanics of going back in time from the original Life is Strange are what made it unique, while its absence here makes it just another adventure among so many others.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an excellent action-adventure game, perfectly blending elements from Metroid Prime, Dark Souls, Uncharted and Prince of Persia. The downsides are the uninteresting plot and the technical problems.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is a game with a simple proposal, but it turns out to be quite challenging in the final stages. The difficulty becomes frustrating, depending on your interest in the game. Minigames are something else, but nothing that makes you spend a lot of time on them, even in multiplayer. In the end, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD ends up offering little content to the player.

75 / 100 - MediEvil
Oct 23, 2019

MediEvil is a good way to remember the PlayStation classic. The game is basically the same, with a great new paint layer, freer camera control and a few extras. However, besides being relatively short, MediEvil has a considerably high number of collision bugs and the new camera is not very good in many moments.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a great platform game that seeks to please Donkey Kong Country fans. It's a relatively long, challenging title with a lot of collectibles and some special stages. The overworld has some very interesting puzzles. However, the camera has some problems and the damage system is like the one in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and it isn't very good.

Trine 4 is a return to its origins. Contains a solid, fun and puzzle-packed campaign. The four player multiplayer is great. The downside comes from the bad combat mechanics and some bugs that may occur, mostly online.

85 / 100 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

Despite its confusing story, Control is a great action adventure game with a varied gameplay. The idea of a weapon being used for all functions, combined with all of Jesse's psychic powers, makes combat work very well. The simplified "metroidvania" style is also very good, making Control to be not so linear.

85 / 100 - Samurai Shodown
Jul 1, 2019

Samurai Shodown is a great fighting game, with elaborated yet accessible mechanics. The story mode for each character is interesting, as is the variety of the fighters. The system of Ghosts' players is also worth mentioning. Unfortunately, there are some problems, like the online mode that can suffer from lag in many fights.
