Apr 19, 2019

Islanders is a uniquely-designed city builder that offers a relaxed experience even if you only have ten minutes to spare.

A gorgeous-looking, extremely polished city builder that offers a relaxed experience with light RPG, diplomatic and combat elements.

7.5 / 10.0 - Tropico 6
Mar 29, 2019

Witty political satire? Check. Lovely latin music soundtrack? Check. Solid city builder gameplay? Check. Is this Tropico 6? Tropico 5? Tropico 4? Loyal Penultimo would struggle to spot the difference, and players might decide at some point to ditch El Presidente for a new one bringing some fresh air... if only there was one in sight.

A light and entertaining alternative to heavy-weight shooters like Raw Data and In Death, The Wizards gives the player great satisfaction in creating spells with their own hands, and that's simply amazing.

Gathering Storm succeeds in the difficult task of refreshing Civ VI experience while keeping its spirit intact. The enviromentalist theme is pretty spot on and the renewed diplomatic options will make it the ideal expansion for those who don't measure their success in terms of the length of their artillery.

In this chapter of Ace Combat, the gameplay is stripped down to a bare minimum and the air-to-ground combat is plain boring. The jaw-dropping graphics and production values will probably be enough to attract the fans of the franchise, but if arcade air fighting is not your niche, you'd better steer away.

9 / 10.0 - Beat Saber
Jan 2, 2019

Beat Saber is a rhythm game that's both simple and fun. Unfortunately, its soundtrack is very limited at the moment.

6.6 / 10.0 - Borderlands 2 VR
Dec 23, 2018

This porting fails to address many aspects that required VR-focused re-work. In additions, content cuts like the absence of co-op mode essentially make this version of Borderlands 2 sub-par to the original game.

7.6 / 10.0 - Book of Demons
Dec 17, 2018

Book of Demons has some good ideas wich often are well implemented, but in certain situations Diablo's inspiration becomes a cage a bit too narrow.

8.6 / 10.0 - Tetris Effect
Nov 20, 2018

Not only do we have a new Tetris, but finally we find a version of this eternal classic with a single player campaign, whose narrative is entirely entrusted to the audio-visual mix that combines perfectly to create moments in which the multi-sensorial experience elaborated by our brain joins the logical work necessary to complete the levels. The only real flaw of Tetris Effect is the absence of multiplayer.

8.2 / 10.0 - GRIP: Combat Racing
Nov 2, 2018

The spirit of Rollcage lives back in Grip: Combat Racing, where you speed your way up upside down until victory. The Rivals system is genious, but Caged Element didn't fully explore its potential. Beautiful tracks and a tense campaign are definitely highlights of this game.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales takes this genre to a new level of depth thanks to the combination of good writing and a gameplay skillfully declined in numerous variations.

First-party developer Japan Studio shows competence in the use of virtual reality, and even more in the way it takes the DualShock controller at the front of the action. The protagonists, Sony's Bots, are as cute as they come, and the general look and feel make Astro Bot a joy to play. On the otherside, the game does barely offer any kind of challenge at all and more variety in gameplay would have been appreciated by experienced players. However, it is good to see type of productions for virtual reality, which show great potential.

8.1 / 10.0 - Transference
Sep 28, 2018

Transference is an extremely interesting experiment and it succeeds in mixing the movie and videogame components. The use of audio will keep you on the edge, and a few jump scare work very well. However, the constant feeling of tension ends up holding the narrative back, as a greater variety of emotions would have benefitted the overall experience. Transference is remarkably short for a videogame, which might disappoint many players.

8.8 / 10.0 - Valkyria Chronicles 4
Sep 13, 2018

Valkyria Chronicles finally comes back to major gaming platforms, where it belongs. Despite some minor defects, the management of tactics and strategies in and out the battlefield offers a great experience. SEGA bring us a huge amount of high-quality content, but the tone of the narrative might not be in line with part of the western audience.

8.2 / 10.0 - Firewall: Zero Hour
Sep 5, 2018

Despite the few game-modes at day one, Firewall Zero Hour is one of the new reference points for VR tactical shooters.

Proxy Studios has done subtraction work from the 4x genre and, for every element of this vein that has been eliminated, greater depth to the strategic components has been infused. Some technical limits are still there, but W40k Gladius - Relics of War remains a great game.

6.5 / 10.0 - Conan Exiles
Jun 1, 2018

Conan Exiles shows some flaws and missing contents that make it still weak and incomplete. The potential of the game, however, is still good.

Outcast Second Contact is a good remake, but not for everyone. Despite some old-school mechanics could prevent someone from enjoying the game (gunplay and matted animations are the two main defendants), Outcast is still imbued with good exploration and an entertaining plot. Give it a chance.
