7.7 / 10.0 - God Eater 3
Feb 6, 2019

God Eater 3 is a good hunting game, altough not a perfect one. The RPG structure focused on equipment and allies' growth allows to stage great hunts against giant monsters in a post-apocalyptic world. It is also possible to share everything both on single and online playing. By the way the game mantains its historical flaws such as being repetitive and running with a very raw graphic. Old fans will immediately feel at ease, but newcomers will have to take some time to ponder and get used to the system and narration proposed by the game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Aug 28, 2018

Strange Brigade is Rebellion's attempt to develop something new, an action third-person shooter that makes of playability and fun its principal objectives. Through the game is a fun and light experience, it should be played not too much in a row, because of the confusion that sometimes affects the on-screen action. It's a game developed with professionality and a fine amount of inspiration, and it could be a good way to pass these last summer days or to begin with the TPS world.

All-Star Fruit Racing is a good debut kart game. It's the effort of a newcoming software house who does not compete against great kart games, but it also say it has not this ambition. They developed a game that is funny, creative and user-friendly. Its strongest features lie in the track design and the weapon system, but its flaws are a too simple driving system and drivers with few charisma. It's a summer videogame, to have fun together with family and friends.

Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered is a strange paradox. It's a "link" chapter, that concludes the concepts born on previous gen consoles, but on the other hand it actually says something new about the series and its background. There are lot of recycled ideas, but here they reach the better compromise between engagement, free-roaming, plot and optional tasks. The remaster also does not give specific changes except from the stabilized frame-rate, so if you are not collectors you will not be so incentivate to rebuy it. If you have discovered the series from Black Flag and Unity, consider giving it a possibility.

7 / 10.0 - Surviving Mars
Mar 15, 2018

Surviving Mars does not speak to the casual gamer, but it's also a good city-builder. Its creators Haemimont Games deeply love science-fiction, and they demonstrated it by giving their game a variety of scenarios together with its citybuilder nature. It deserves time to be appreciated, but seeing your colony become operative is always a satisfaction. Veterans could find a relatively new way to see science-fiction on their genre. Due to rigid gamepad controls, newcomers may consider the PC.

7.5 / 10.0 - Dynasty Warriors 9
Feb 13, 2018

Dynasty Warriors 9 is far from perfection. It has technical issues, its gameplay needs time to be appreciated and seems a bit lazy when he must do something different from action. But it's also powerful and passionate, strictly following Guanzhong's original Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Perhaps the limited open-world system will seem a missed occasion, but the advice we can give is to give it a chance, and to do it out of any preconception.

8 / 10.0 - Okami HD
Dec 11, 2017

Okami HD re-enacts on PS4 and Xbox One one of the most courageous and inspired game of the PS2 generation. An adventure that fuses Shinto mythology and and Japanese folklore into a "Zelda" structure, to develop a great painted legend. If the brush-based gameplay has aged very well, others minigames and some camera angles make evident it's a PS2 game. If you never play Okami on previous consoles, you should buy it at once; if you already possess it, it will attract you only if you're a collector.

L.A. Noire is a masterpiece. It deserves this title because it refuses the grandeur of other Rockstar games to obtain a more reflective and investigative gameplay. The game is an actually detective story, and we can be only glad that we have it also on PS4 and XOne. By the way this port keeps all technical issues of the PS3-360 generation, and it does not feature any extra content. If you haven't played it yet before, you should take it at once, but if you bought it back in 2011, you'll be attracted by it only if you're a collector or a 4K lover.

7.5 / 10.0 - ECHO
Nov 5, 2017

ECHO is a good videogame debut: it's a fantascientific monologue about solitude represented like a theatre play. Its "scene" is highly detailed, but the game is not very technically optimized. The gameplay is deeply based on stealth, but sometimes it lacks of classical mechanics of the genre. Its minimal cast provides a different vision of the science-fiction future, and it's recommended mainly to those who like such an intimistic vision. Others may consider to ponder about.

7 / 10.0 - Warriors All-Stars
Sep 4, 2017

Warriors All-Stars is a dress rehersal. It's a great party with many special guests, waiting for the upcoming Dynasty Warriors 9. It mantains the funny and the canonic gameplay of the series, and it also features good ideas that try to deep the experience, in a manner similar to RPG. Is it is now, the game is a very good example of fanservice, but it also may represent a good starting point for newcomers.

7.5 / 10.0 - Matterfall
Aug 15, 2017

Matterfall is a nostalgic rievocation of Nineties' coin-ops. It's an hybrid shooter, that combines side-scrolling with flying sections and platforming. It throws the player into the gameplay without premises, making him to survive among aliens, robots and bullet-hell levels. Its challenging gameplay will be a great thing for every person who lived the last coin-op era, but also modern gamers may have the will to try it.
