Breakers Collection is a good collection of two relatively unknown fighting games, including extra content like online and gallery modes. The games themselves, Breakers and Breakers Revenge, are good, with simple and enjoyable gameplay.

65 / 100 - Goat Simulator 3
Dec 26, 2022

Goat Simulator 3 is full of unfunny jokes, several once-funny exaggerations, and pretty obvious references. Underneath all this mess, we have an interesting gameplay. But still, Goat Simulator 3 is basically an open world game made entirely of bad sidequests.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS5 is still the fantastic adventure that won over thousands of players in the last generation. It's basically one of the best games of all time improved in many points, such as loading, frame rate and graphics. The free upgrade just make things even better. However, don't expect anything new though – at its heart it's the same game we enjoyed in 2015 and its expansions later on.

40 / 100 - Samurai Maiden
Dec 8, 2022

SAMURAI MAIDEN mixes two completely opposite genres (action and visual novel) and fails to excel in either one. It is a weak, boring game with awful graphics, bad music, unresponsive controls and a monotonous story. The character models are very nice and the action is a little pleasing after evolving a lot and unlocking different moves, but it's not worth it.

The Rumble Fish 2 is an interesting fighting game, featuring unique characters and also distinct mechanics. However, the port for consoles leaves something to be desired, especially in the technical part (there are no graphic filters or options in this regard) and online. At least there are some extra modes (besides Arcade) that should increase its lifespan.

80 / 100 - Sonic Frontiers
Nov 7, 2022

Sonic Frontiers manages to mix what we expect from a Sonic game with an open world full of collectibles. The gameplay is great, the soundtrack is fantastic and the graphics are good. The title lacks in the difficulty, story and in the visuals of the cutscenes.

God of War: Ragnarok is a natural evolution of the 2018 title, featuring an excellent story, an amazing technical side, new gameplay features, incredible battles and lots of varied content to explore. Easily a game of the year contender, Kratos and Atreus' new adventure is unforgettable and satisfyingly concludes this chapter of the Norse mythology.

Shadows of Rose is a nice addition to the Resident Evil Village story, bringing new puzzles with new gameplay mechanics. However, it uses the same enviroment as the base game and its ending is disappointing. The Third Person Mode is interesting and should please those who avoided the title for being in first person. Finally, the new characters in The Mercenaries are valid additions, but needing to unlock them is unnecessary and because of this it is possible that many players will not even see them.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is a fantastic game. The graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is amazing, the gameplay is very good and the story is immersive and impactful. There are a few minor technical problems – which are far from ruining the experience – and, because it is a linear and plot-focused game, there's not much to do once you've finished the campaign.

70 / 100 - Valkyrie Elysium
Oct 4, 2022

Valkyrie Elysium has a very good combat system and a great soundtrack. However, its story is shallow, its campaign is short, and the graphics are bad.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac is a simple, short and easy platform game. Despite the new coat of paint on the graphics and animations, it's still the same PS1 game underneath. If your nostalgia for the title is high, it might be worth checking out. Otherwise, because of its low difficulty, it's a game recommended for children. The duration, however, will be short in any case.

80 / 100 - DNF Duel
Jul 8, 2022

DNF Duel is a good game with beautiful graphics and accessible mechanics. The cast of characters is relatively varied and the modes are what we currently expect from a fighting title. Online is great with its netcode via rollback, although there is no cross-play. DNF Duel's biggest problem is perhaps its lack of innovation and being too simple in its essence.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a great DLC that further enhances an already incredible game. Although Ms. Chalice is not exactly a third character and works as a charm, she brings a lot of new features to the gameplay. Bosses are still amazing and challenging. The only problem may be the duration of the DLC.

80 / 100 - Sonic Origins
Jun 21, 2022

Sonic Origins is a collection of classic Sonic games at their best. Extras such as missions, animated cutscenes and Sonic 3 & Knuckles "remastered" in 16:9 also appeal mainly to those who already know the original games. However, the price is very high for what the package offers and is far from being a definitive collection.

Capcom Fighting Collection is a good collection of fighting games, offering a little bit of everything. It's pretty basic, offering what you'd expect and nothing more. It is more aimed at fans of Darkstalkers or those who want to know games like Red Earth. The simultaneous matchmaking for more than one online game deserves praise, however. The launch price, on the other hand, can be an issue.

Gunborg: Dark Matters is a challenging 2D action game. It is fun and at the same time frustrating for its difficulty. However, the biggest complaint is about the buttons on the triggers: playing a 2D platform title with many functions on the L and R buttons can be very annoying.

75 / 100 - Kao the Kangaroo
May 27, 2022

Kao the Kangaroo is a good 3D platform game, offering just the right amount of fun for those who like the genre. However, it is relatively short and easy, being aimed more at a younger audience. Also, some annoying bugs need to be fixed.

75 / 100 - Soundfall
May 23, 2022

Soundfall is a game that makes an excellent first impression, but it ends up becoming boring throughout its numerous stages. Despite being extremely challenging, its RPG side requires unnecessary grinding. Co-op, while being nice, can be frustrating for those who want to achieve the perfect scores.

Horizon Forbidden West is a masterpiece. The foundation that Horizon Zero Dawn has laid is improved in every way, whether it's gameplay or story. We have amazing graphics, charismatic characters, an intriguing plot and an addictive, varied and challenging gameplay.

The King of Fighters XV improves on what was presented in its predecessor, especially the graphics and the online netcode. However, the absence of some classic fighters is notable. And mechanically speaking, don't expect anything too different from KOF XIV.
