The Foundation universe deserves a better game. The game benefits from what was created in 1951, and the story here is one you will enjoy. So are the choices and the ability to explore this world in much greater detail, thanks to the extensive encyclopaedia. But the gameplay falls short of not only the story, but also the potential of the game itself.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Finals
Dec 29, 2023

Despite the minor flaws, I'm having more fun with The Finals than I have had with any multiplayer game in perhaps the last 5 years. It's dynamic, explosive, exciting, mechanically perfect and technically polished. Gone are the pre-release flaws, and what's left is fun action gameplay for anyone hungry for action and destruction. Playing in small teams motivates a different play style to Call of Duty, Battlefield and others, and offers an experience that is virtually unmatched on the market.

7 / 10.0 - Boxville
Dec 28, 2023

The result is a little adventure game that doesn't offend, that is really tightly hand-animated, and that is just as nicely paced. The plot isn't complicated, but you wouldn't expect it to be. It feels like an animated movie, and even if it has a few flaws, there's something special about it.

5 / 10.0 - Air Twister
Dec 18, 2023

Yu Suzuki has done something original here. Definitely not for everyone, but it has its charm. Unfortunately, it also has its flaws. It is hard to get into the game when one of the bosses is a clock. The final boss is just a geometric formation. The story is there, but it's as if it's not there at all. The gameplay isn't bad, but even that gets old after a while.

The action is fun. That's what you'll enjoy most. You'll love the new dynamic lighting, the cheats add a little something extra, the game runs like clockwork on every platform, and there're even motion controls on the Switch. But multiplayer is lacking, the textures are ugly, and the sound is downright bad.

2.5 / 10.0 - Dynablaster
Dec 5, 2023

The game tries to capitalise on a well-known name, but the result is something that lacks any sense of effort, love or experience. The best testament to the game's poor qualities is that nobody plays it anymore.

7 / 10.0 - Party Animals
Nov 29, 2023

Party Animals isn't a bad multiplayer game, but it has some strange and almost unnecessary flaws, and the longevity of the fun you'll have playing it is questionable.

The developers promised that Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 would be a better game than the first, and they succeeded. But it's just a little bit better. While the game is fun and more varied, and still looks and sounds great, it's short and still pretty shallow in the end. What saves it is the fun co-op and the extended combat system. The story isn't bad either, and shows us that the developers would like to continue the series.

Football Manager 2024 sticks to a formula that works well and doesn't try to change it, but it does add some minor innovations. These are mainly aimed at experienced and hardcore players, but the game still manages to appeal to new players through a series of hints and assistants.

5.5 / 10.0 - Quantum: Recharged
Nov 21, 2023

The basic concept is simply too simple for today, and even though the developers have made some changes and innovations, it is simply not enough. This is a game about a single mechanic that you repeat over and over again. What keeps you playing is a decent level of challenge, and maybe even co-op, but definitely not variability.

If you've never had the pleasure of playing Rise of The Triad before and want to familiarise yourself with it, you're probably better off picking up the 2013 remake. While the remaster retains the spirit of the original, some things haven't aged well, and there are a few things missing.

Studio Teyon have shown that they understand the RoboCop brand and have delivered a game that fits in well with the established world. They've also given us what may be our last chance to enjoy Peter Weller in this iconic role. The action is fun, the shooting is probably the best this year, the upgrading and leveling makes sense, and overall it works well as a game, even if there are a number of hiccups. This game is more than the sum of its parts, though, and for fans it's something they've been waiting for for years.

9.5 / 10.0 - Alan Wake 2
Oct 26, 2023

When it comes to Alan Wake 2, there's no need to hold back on the superlatives; every single one of them is well-deserved. But if I had to pinpoint one element that truly captures your attention, it's the extraordinary storyline.

7 / 10.0 - F1 Manager 2023
Oct 24, 2023

I found F1 Manager 2023 to be slightly worse than last year's edition. In small things, not important stuff, but still. That's the first aspect that pulls the score down. The second one is the fact that after the previous edition we were expecting updates and improvements in every part of the game, but we got basically the same game in terms of content and mechanics.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is a very good 2D platformer, full of little innovations, but it doesn't feel like a major revolution. It plays very similarly to Super Mario Bros. 2, and that's a game that's already 35 years old.

In many ways, this game is the fulfilment of fans' fantasies of what it's like to be Spider-Man. We get our hands on a huge open city, expanded to include Brooklyn, Queens and beyond, where we use a wide range of abilities and options to take down a familiar gallery of villains. There are a few problems, though, and it's not pleasant to see them repeated from the first game.

The Football Cup 2023 fails in everything that video game football should be. And the worst part is that the creators have clearly given up on trying to make it better. Want football on Switch? Wait for FC 24, grab old FIFA editions, or almost anything else.

Bud Spencer & Terence Hill - Slaps And Beans 2 is not a bad game, and will especially appeal to fans of the legendary Italian duo. Compared to the first game, it has been expanded and improved in many ways, but it also has some nasty bugs that detract from the overall experience.

9 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport
Oct 3, 2023

More than 500 cars, 20 completely redesigned tracks, each with different variations, an already rich career and addictive multiplayer. And that's just the beginning of the new Forza Motorsport. Turn 10 is truly delivering a next-generation racing game that strips away the bells and whistles to focus on the driving and the experience. You're going to drive a lot, you're going to improve, you're going to unlock new things and you're going to have fun. That's the most important thing.

Actually, there are not many problems in the core itself. But after so many months and for a premium price, you would expect more. You'd expect more variety and longer gameplay. You'd expect more novelty in the gameplay. You'd expect new environments, new puzzles, new enemies, new weapons. But that's not here. All we got was the same stuff we got back in March.
