Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the natural evolution of the already excellent Ori and the Blind Forest, a masterpiece and a milestone in the metroidvania genre. It's a modern fairy tale with a lesson that should be accepted by everyone and applied without reservation in the everyday life. So be careful: playing Ori and the Will of the Wisps could make you a better person.

9.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 13, 2018

GRIS is an outstanding work of pure art lended to the world of video games. Its gameplay, however simple, is but a vessel for a strong and emotional message carried out by an exceptional visual and sound direction. The first title of Nomada Studio is moving, delicate and elegant: a real gem in the landscape of independent video games.

Warhammer 3 is hands down the best Total War ever made. Despite some issues, some of them concerning diplomacy, the many new features and factions largely offset the problems of the game.

I Was a Teenage Exocolonist is a storm of punches that hits straight in the stomach. It's a video game that monopolized my free time and that I'll continue to dissect well beyond my (current) fourth playthrough. It's a game that has crept between my mind and my heart, something that I'll hardly be able to chase away from there. Not that I'd want to, to be honest. Northway Games has managed to create something that transcends genres, a video game that I'd like to be enjoyed by as many people as humanly possible.

9.2 / 10.0 - Desperados III
Jun 12, 2020

Mimimi Games did it again! Desperados III is a love letter to a genre of a long forgotten past, beautifully crafted in every single detail. John Cooper and his friends are finally back in action, and let's hope are here to stay for a long time.

9 / 10.0 - Surviving Mars
Mar 15, 2018

Surviving Mars is another shiny diamond in the chest of Paradox Interactive: a multi-faceted, well designed city builder with pretty unique approach and visuals. The gameplay is simple enough to get the attention of the player, but ultimately immersive and engaging.

9 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds
Oct 22, 2019

The Outer Worlds is Obsidian Entertainment's magnum opus, an RPG with an enticing and multifaceted ruleset set in a dystopian capitalistic society. Its only flaws reside in the combat system and gunplay, but these are easely counterbalanced by the excellent writing and the many possibilities offered to the players. Let's hope Obsidian will explore this setting further, possibly with a much needed sequel.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order hits the target by offering the right mix of adrenaline-pumping action and thoughtful exploration. The metroidvania mechanics are grafted to perfection within the game formula, and the same can be said for those borrowed from the latest productions of From Software. Without introducing anything really new, Respawn Entertainment manages to merge all these elements and give birth to a fascinating and satisfying experience, as well as being consistent with the Star Wars ecosystem (much more than the last movies).

9 / 10.0 - Hitman 3
Jan 19, 2021

Hitman 3 dances asymptotically with the concept of perfection, often approaching it without ever really grasping its essence. Nevertheless, IO Interactive manages to improve and refine a well-established formula, while offering a a truly satisfying conclusion to 47's struggle against Providence. Although there are some flaws, they're almost entirely eclipsed by the incredible quality of everything else.

8.8 / 10.0 - Prey: Mooncrash
Jun 22, 2018

Arkane Studios offers a very well crafted roguelite experiment, although repetitive on long distance, with some small but forgivable weakness.

Defining Tom Clancy's The Division 2 as a "more of the same" is certainly unfair, but we have to say that the innovations introduced by Massive Entertainment are grafted onto the already proven mechanics of the previous incarnation of the series. Compared to its direct predecessor, the latest game developed by the Swedish studio already offers an impressive amount of content. The lack of a consistent plot and a poor optimization on PC are the only issues worth noting. This is however an excellent exponent of the "looter shooter" genre, surely the only one presenting itself in the most complete form at launch.

8.8 / 10.0 - Crusader Kings III
Aug 31, 2020

Crusader Kings III is one of the best Paradox Develpment Studio's games to date. Deep and compelling, this grand strategy can entertain you for dozens, if not hundreds of hours between its intrigues, holy wars, and dynasties in the making.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a critical success on a persuasion test. At first, you can only feel enthusiasm in the face of such a majestic work, yet as the effects of the test begin to disappear you realize that something is wrong. With his latest effort, Larian Studios does everything a role-playing enthusiast would like from its ideal title, except to create an engaging and compelling story. This and a few problems too much in the balance of the combat system prevent Original Sin 2 from establishing itself at the top of the genre, while still remaining a great product.

8.7 / 10.0 - Hitman 2
Nov 9, 2018

Hitman 2 is an excellent more of the same, a game that pushes the boundaries of the freedom given to the players in delivering the perfect assassination. The level design reaches new height in the genre, and the plot is compelling. Sadly the two multiplayer modes are a bit shallow.
