The Grand Caiman is possibly the best DLC that Shadow of the Tomb Raider has received so far, but this doesn't mean it's great. The story is quite simple, although the tomb is interesting.

80 / 100 - Trials Rising
Apr 1, 2019

Trials Rising continues with the intentions of its predecessors, offering a very difficult and addictive challenge, as well as a great design of stages. However, the grind that the game requires at a certain point and the lootboxes system are negative points that take away the shining of the title.

87 / 100 - Dead or Alive 6
Mar 3, 2019

Dead or Alive 6 is an excellent fighting game. The graphics are very beautiful, the fights are dynamic and the new gameplay mechanics are interesting. The available modes are also good, especially the DOA Quest and all the tutorials and challenges. However, DOA 6 has its problems, such as story mode and the little variety of costumes (many only change the color). However, the absence of many basic functionalities in the online at its launch, even if they come later, is something that we can not ignore unfortunately.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is a trip to the past and a game that the fans of the original wanted. It's really good, fun and the multiplayer is great. The downside is the loading time and playing it alone can be boring.

"The Price of Survival" has more story content than the previous DLCs, because of the inclusion of puzzles. However, it is weak. The tomb in question, even with a puzzle that seems to be challenging at first glance, is also dull and the shortest available so far via DLC.

The second episode of Life is Strange 2 continues the journey of the two brothers and explores more of Daniel's power. The presence of Captain Spirit is interesting. Certain events, however, did not cause the impact they intended to because they were too predictable. The consequence at the end of the episode was also not my intention considering my choices. It is a relatively good episode and provides more information about the family of the two brothers, but has few interesting moments.

The Nightmare continues the series of DLCs for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. It's the best among the DLCs that's been released so far, with a little piece of story from Lara's past and a somewhat challenging tomb. Cooperative mode is present, which is a good thing. However, it is a short DLC and nothing groundbreaking.

98 / 100 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 22, 2019

Resident Evil 2 is an excellent game. The Survival Horror that fans wanted so much is here, the technical aspect is impressive and the various campaigns (even if they have very similar elements) increase the lifespan considerably. Although the remake is not exactly identical to the original, the essence of the 1998 game remains present. Resident Evil 2 is a must-have title in your collection.

The Pillar features an interesting tomb with beautiful graphics. However, the plot is weak and the lack of an online co-op is noteworthy.

Silver Lining is a great conclusion for this series of DLCs that have been somewhat disappointing. It is a more diverse DLC, presenting interesting situations that make you want to play it. The downsides are the ending, as it seems it had its development rushed, and again its length.

The Forge presents a rather bland story and a tomb with a somewhat interesting challenge. The cooperative online mode is a valid addition and we hope the upcoming DLCs will also offer this.

Turf Wars is a very simple and short DLC. The fighting is challenging and some missions are interesting, but the story has a poor development and there is no novelty in the gameplay. Like the previous DLC, it's "more of the same".

The Heist is a DLC that seems incomplete. The story is interesting, but it ends up a bit too soon and therefore without any conclusion. We know there are two others DLCs on the way, but there is a feeling that an arc of the plot hasn't been finalized. In addition, the main missions and side activities are quite similar to the base game, presenting little or no novelty in the gameplay. It's worth it because it's more Spider-Man, but do not expect something really interesting.

95 / 100 - SoulCalibur VI
Oct 21, 2018

SoulCalibur VI is an excellent fighting game and it reignites the flame of this wonderful series. The gameplay is fantastic and the online mode is also very good. The single-player mode has plenty of content and the character-creation mode continues to please. Geralt was a great choice of a guest character, too. The negative point goes to the story mode told in the form of text or dialogues (it lacks the production that Tekken 7 received). Other negative points are the absence of some fan favorite characters, and the few new ones (only two, besides Geralt).

Scribblenauts Mega Pack includes two games from the innovative series that are quite distinct, despite having similar gameplay. Unlimited offers the basics, with you creating objects in a direct way and helping people with what they need. Unmasked offers a deeper storyline with DC characters, with more varied challenges and more open missions. If you like puzzles, Scribblenauts Mega Pack can be a great option.

Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD is a summarized experience of what Final Fantasy XV offers. It's an interesting game, but it's hard to recommend it when we have Final Fantasy XV itself. Try it only if you want a shortened version of FFXV, otherwise choose the full version.

The first episode of Life is Strange 2 introduces us the brothers Daniel and Sean in a simple and effective way. You will feel emotionally attached to them in some way. Therefore, the story shows itself to be promising in this first episode. However, there are some problems regarding the technical performance. In addition, in this first episode there are no mechanics in the gameplay tied to the "power" of one of the brothers, which takes away the uniqueness of this series in relation to other adventure games. In the end though, we are looking forward to the second episode.

Spider-Man is easily one of the best superhero games of all time. The gameplay is great, whether in combat or while swinging throughout the New York buildings. The story is also well built. However, the "human" parts, when we control Peter Parker and Mary Jane for example, are weak and break the rhythm. Luckily, those parts are a minority and do not ruin the experience as a whole. Spider-Man is a must have game.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is an extremely casual fighting game. It seeks to simplify the mechanics of the King of Fighters series to make them simpler and with random elements, like items. In the end, this will not please any type of player. The customization of the girls is quite considerable, but there are many limitations. The rest of the game does not please either. Acquire it only if you are a fan of SNK, but take notice that you may be disappointed.

80 / 100 - Blade Strangers
Sep 15, 2018

Blade Strangers is a great fighting game that seeks simplicity in its commands and, perhaps for the first time, has accomplished this. The graphics are attractive and the characters are cool, especially the guests. Online mode is also functional, including with people from different regions. The story mode, however, is somewhat bad (though each character has its own novel visual style plot) and maybe not everyone will approve the simplicity in the commands. Unfortunately, there is still hope that the online mode will not become deserted, since it is a niche title.
