Raiden IV x MIKADO remix adds nothing to the original 2007 release, but it's a perfect title to have in your library and play in your moments of relaxation. Beyond the slightly excessive price and the absence of novelties, it is an operation that, as it should be, focuses entirely on nostalgia.

7 / 10.0 - Forspoken
Jan 27, 2023

Forspoken is a game that has great potential, expressed in a precise, fast and fun combat system. Sadly, everything else in the game lacks novelty or interest in exploration.

Season is a phenomenal work, not just the classic little pearl, but an all-round videogame experience capable of exciting, telling, immersing us in the last moments of a reality that could end, change, change. A mechanism of memorization and movement within towns, villages and glimpses of nature of disarming beauty.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion is a hybrid between a remake and a remastered. Aesthetically enhanced, with revised polygonal models and an optimized combat system, having fun is guaranteed even if you will collide with the inevitable defects, the same of 2007.

Sports Interactive aims to bring Football Manager 2023 to all home consoles and brings a little change to the new chapter. Despite everything, FM23 is an excellent, precise and satisfying game, with the European licenses finally returning.

8.5 / 10.0 - Saturnalia
Oct 27, 2022

Saturnalia is an atypical horror game, but engaging and extremely funny. Solid gameplay is accompanied by a great art direction.

Star Ocean: The Divine Force is yet another Tri-ace jrpg, beautiful in the combat system, while poor in the aesthetic realization of the game world.

7.3 / 10.0 - Scorn
Oct 14, 2022

Scorn is a half-won bet: aesthetically beautiful, with clear references to Giger's art, but all the substance and game mechanics are barely sketched.

Life is Strange: Arcadia Bay Collection arrives on Switch with all the necessary optimizations. A clever operation to propose two excellent titles also to Nintendo users, while not lacking some technical flaw, with a camera that does not always work and very long uploads. For the rest, the adventures of Chloe and Max are still in good hands and shine despite the years.

The DioField Chronicle is a partially successful Square enix experiment. Excellent hybrid game mechanics, but everything else is a constant repetition of the same missions, without adding anything new.

8 / 10.0 - Steelrising
Sep 7, 2022

Steelrising confirms the golden age of Spiders' team, with a solid and compelling soulslike. Nothing new, but a complete, funny and rewarding game.

Rollerdrome is a catchy title. Roll7 wins with this successful sport-shooter formula

8.8 / 10.0 - South of the Circle
Aug 4, 2022

South of the Circle is a weird and fascinating experience, that mixes poor gameplay with a great script. It's essentially an interactive film, where all we're asked to do is look at the screen.

Postal Brain Damaged is a bomb! Fun, fast, ferocious and punishing. A Postal spinoff that breathes new life into a franchise that seemed to have lost all ideas.

5 / 10.0 - Dolmen
May 19, 2022

Dolmen, in its current state, is a game that seldomly works. Not very consistent and with poorly conceived mechanics. Frankly, what was published looks more like an early build that still needs months of optimization and polish.

6.7 / 10.0 - Source of Madness
May 11, 2022

Source of Madness is a roguelite with a brilliant potential, which unfortunately feels mostly squandered. It's a fun game mechanically, but repetition kicks in after just a few hours.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a notable step forward for TT Games, which renews its game formula, with an impressive amount of content and new mechanics to play with. There are some flaws here and there, but it is still an essential videogame for every Star Wars fan and beyond.

7 / 10.0 - Weird West
Apr 5, 2022

Weird West has a fun and engaging sandbox structure and is narratively solid, but it is also unfortunately marred by technical and gameplay issues.

7.3 / 10.0 - ELEX II
Feb 28, 2022

Elex II is your usual Piranha Bytes game. Long, classic in the RPG formula and aesthetically clean, but as always plagued with non optimized combat phases and the trademark issues with anything technical. However, it is still a step forward for the future of the franchise and for Piranha Bytes.
