8.8 / 10.0 - MediEvil
Oct 23, 2019

MediEvil on PlayStation 4 is history that repeats itself. An independent developer who has an idea or a mission big enough to make them overcome the low budget with creativity and love for their work. A faithful remake with interesting solutions to make an old game live in 2019, but also with limitations that stop it to be the best one on this generation. It’s also doubtful that this game will be able to draw new players because of its inexperience and rigidities that directly came from the 90s. But this MediEvil remains to praise because it brings back not only Sir Dan, but also his message: sometimes motivation could everything you need to achieve something great. Because in the end we are all Sir Daniel Fortesque.

Nov 17, 2017

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.

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.

It doesn't matter which console you play it on: Final Fantasy IX still remains a timeless masterpiece, and thus we can only be glad to see its success on the Nintendo digital store. However, this Switch edition is basically the same that was published on PS4 and PC on last two years, so if you already own it on one of these two platforms, there is no real need to buy it again.

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 - 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.

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.

7.5 / 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.

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.
