7.2 / 10.0 - Quadroids
Feb 21, 2024

Brilliant idea that is not developed to its fullest potential. Still, if you are not necessarily looking for the next Portal, it will be good fun for some hours.

6.8 / 10.0 - Genotype
Nov 9, 2023

Genotype doesn't do anything particularly wrong, but it definitely doesn't do anything particularly well. The open-ended approach to exploration is quite immersive, but combat quickly becomes dull and repetitive.

7.4 / 10.0 - Ghostrunner 2
Oct 23, 2023

Fast and furious fights in a cyberpunk world, this time also on a futuristic bike exploring post-apocalyptic lands – who wouldn't love that? Too bad a few too many puzzle keep the adrenaline rush at bay and distract from the most exciting parts of the game.

8.7 / 10.0 - Total War: PHARAOH
Oct 10, 2023

A splendid campaign mode with many systems working in conjunction to offer a varied experience without losing the focus on the military conquest. Few cavalry units are partly compensated by a renewed attention to different types of infantry, but to be honest I do miss a good old cataphract charge.

9 / 10.0 - TOSS!
Sep 4, 2023

Pure in its design and maniacally focused on details in its execution, Toss! is a typical example of what works extremely well in VR games, on the same level of other classics like Beat Saber and Pistol Whip.

A few strokes of genius do not save Crimen – Mercenary Tales from an overall repetitiveness. It's still ok if you are just looking for a straightforward brawler, with the benefit of a lot of humour in it.

The strong point of Another Fisherman's Tale certainly lies in the narrative. Indeed, in the metanarrative. The puzzles are not a miracle, and it almost seems that the developers have calibrated the duration of the game to avoid excessive repetitions. The two or three central chapters are spectacular and in practice alone would be worth the price of admission.

9.5 / 10.0 - Darkest Dungeon II
May 8, 2023

Red Hook Studios refined the art of Darkest Dungeon in every sense, making it extremely difficult to find any defects. It's a brutally challenging strategy games and it's well suited to embrace the new roguelite form. Do yourself a favour and try it right now.

8.9 / 10.0 - Terra Nil
Mar 27, 2023

Terra Nil is not and does not try to be a triple A title with an infinite amount of content that will keep us glued to the screen for months and months; Instead, I found it a product that conveys a very clear message while relaxing us with its beauty-oriented style.

6.8 / 10.0 - Blood Bowl 3
Mar 6, 2023

Blood Bowl is a beautiful game and Cyanide replicates it in every detail in its latest videogame version. Too bad the single player is ruined by terrible AI and multiplayer is plagued by incomprehensible restrictions. At least developers seem to be addressing the hottest topics raised by the community.

7.8 / 10.0 - Pharaoh: A New Era
Feb 15, 2023

The original Pharaoh came in 1999 towards the end of a generation of city builders. In 2023, Dotemu's Pharaoh: a New Era retains the classic gameplay, but the lack of innovation weighs more than ever as it competes with a new generation of games in the same genre.

8.4 / 10.0 - PathCraft
Jan 19, 2023

Cozy. This is PathCraft, a very comfortable experience which doesn't really break any new ground in the puzzle platformer arena, but it makes you feel home and will challenge you with progressively more difficult puzzles. With its cute art and precise and immediate controls, it's easy to recommend.

Complex beast, Marvel's Midnight Suns. Overall, I have enjoyed it a lot; so much that I found its defects even more annoying, especially considering they are related to design choices around combat missions. Still, this game is an epic adventure, truly worth of Marvel's lore.

8.4 / 10.0 - Floodland
Nov 14, 2022

Floodland is a very strong strategic game with solid gameplay mechanics. The world is fascinating to explore and the narrative campaign introduces new layers of complexity. Defects are few and far between with little impact on the overall experience. Kudos to Vile Monarch.

8.4 / 10.0 - F1 Manager 2022
Aug 29, 2022

A solid management game that finally let us play as the Team Principal of our favourite F1 team. There are plenty of meaningful decisions to take, both on and off track, but sometimes all the numbers risk to feel overwhelming.

9.2 / 10.0 - Two Point Campus
Aug 4, 2022

Let the fun begin! What, did you think the campus was meant for study? In Two Point Campus there is very little difference and the joyful tone will make you happier and happier as you spend hours between gourmet cuisine competitions and a doomed magic university that looks suspiciously like Hogwarts.

Wear the headset and start shooting. And dodging. And creating absurd weapons. MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE is a pretty straight-forward roguelite shooter that delivers on its premise. It won't do much more than that, but that's fine, believe me.

8.4 / 10.0 - Redout 2
Jun 23, 2022

Players beware: it is really hard to stop playing Redout 2. It's more a simulator than an arcade, but it will still keep you hooked and wanting to race again and again on amazing tracks located in beautiful environment. It would really need a training mode, because damn it's tough.

If brainless fun is what you are looking for, look no more. Starship Troopers: Terran Command is light on strategic elements but delivers the feeling of being part of the mobile infantry, as made famous by Paul Verhoeven's movie and Robert Heinlein's novel.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong follows in the vein of narrative games like those of Telltale and Quantic Dream, but cannot reach the same level of quality. The narrative has a tendency to feel too linear and technically wise the game is far from impressive.
