94 / 100 - Frostpunk
Oct 11, 2019

Whether it's the setting and mature themes presented or the diverse and complex gameplay mechanics, Frostpunk sets an example on how strategy games should be. The immersion is so deep that it is difficult to realize the lost (but well invested) hours. It is a game that deserves your attention and it's absolutely worth of your time.

Keepers of the Void brings nothing really new to the Darksiders 3 experience, but at least features some great puzzles - an important feature of the series. It is better if enjoyed during the main journey of Darksiders 3, due to the new items and weapons added to the game. Repeatability makes the journey a little boring, but the rewards can justify the player's effort.

Enhancing its predecessor's formula, Builders 2 delivers an even more charismatic, rewarding and fun experience. While there is freedom to play with the possibilities of the game, the complaints are minimal. However, the design of the missions and the game's constant tutorials are annoying, assuming the player needs "crutches" for even the most basic tasks. The imbalance in tutorial implementation will require players' perseverance, but the investment is worth it after all.

A Plague Tale is an interesting new intellectual property. The period of the black death was reimagined with a narrative permeated by mystical elements, while exploring the fraternal relationship between Amicia and Hugo. It is a technically competent game, which conveys a rich and detailed universe, but its potential is barred by a trivial gameplay. Despite the problems, it's recommended and worth playing!

The few imperfections are quickly dismissed in the face of such a majestic gameplay. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sets an important milestone for action games by introducing an innovative and euphoric fighting system, allied to a unique vertical exploration. The journey is not easy, but the catharsis provided by overcoming each obstacle is unparalleled.

88 / 100 - The Messenger
Mar 20, 2019

Just as surprising as the plot twists is the entertainment provided by The Messenger's dialogues. The gameplay is great and represents an evolution of the games that it takes inspiration from, but it's the unforeseen events, in the good sense, that makes this journey fantastic.

75 / 100 - Ghost of a Tale
Mar 14, 2019

It is unfortunate that a game with so many qualities provides a frustrating experience because of technical problems. Despite the limitations, Ghost of a Tale is good and can be much better after a few patches.

Although the existence of an Arcade Mode offers a more enjoyable experience and should please retrogamers, it is unfortunate that the length of the dungeons and the repetitiveness compromises the enjoyment of the ambitious story mode. Madelyn's adventure is problematic and needed more development time. The potential is there, it just needed a bit more of effort.

85 / 100 - The Forest
Nov 21, 2018

A hybrid of horror and survival, with ample freedom in gameplay, The Forest is another formidable addition to the PlayStation 4 library. It could be better in some details, but it's a unique game because of its construction system. The coop campaign is extraordinary and represents the best way to enjoy the game, so be persuasive and convince some friends to travel along through this mysterious island.

Requiem is a poor collection, without relevant extras and permeated by technical problems. The drawbacks should displease enthusiasts of the series, however the two games are perfectly playable. In short, the port is bad, but the games are great. If Castlevania is an important series for you, it is worth revisiting in order to secure that special platinum trophy on your gamer resume.
