There is a lot of fan service in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Dark Order and that's a smart move from Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja. The game is tailored around the expectations of Marvel's fans, with tons of characters and references to both movies and comics. Sure, cameras are bad and graphic is not so good, but superheroes lovers, the only target of the game, will not care about that too much.

7.6 / 10.0 - Observation
Jun 3, 2019

As a cinematic experience, Observation can easily be considered one of the highest points of the genre. Cool photography and a great reproduction of the space environment supports a solid and unnerving narrative. On the gameplay side, however, something did not work to the end and at least part of the screams I left to wander in space were not one of terror, but of frustration.

7.9 / 10.0 - Shakedown: Hawaii
May 25, 2019

More than a "more of the same", Shakedown Hawaii improves almost everything it takes from Retro City Rampage and introduces new mechanics. Not everything works as it should, but it never lacks ambition. Moreover, his 16bit style is super cool.

Mormo's Curse is a good expansion. The spirit of The Swords of Ditto is still intact, but new modes, enemies and areas offer a satisfying challenge for both old and new players.

7.5 / 10.0 - Unheard
Apr 30, 2019

Sometimes a single good idea is enough to think out of the box and make a simple, but intriguing game. Unheard proves that listening can be as engaging as watching, but it lacks any kind of reward, making patience more valuable than skills.

7 / 10.0 - Snooker 19
Apr 29, 2019

Even with a mainstream approach, reached through a huge roster and shiny scenarios, Snooker 19 is designed to really satisfy only a small niche of fans of the discipline.

It's a bit paradoxical to think that the weakest point of a remake are the newest features, but that's the case with Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn: the new abilities break that perfect balance of the original game. Fortunately, that game is still there and if you want you can appreciate it exactly as it was conceived.

8.3 / 10.0 - Wargroove
Feb 22, 2019

Even without the precision and balance of its source of inspiration, Advance Wars, Wargroove still manages to offer an excellent strategic experience through a wide variety of modes.

7.6 / 10.0 - Riot: Civil Unrest
Feb 3, 2019

Without considering its aim, RIOT may seem just a poor RTS. However, its ability to integrate gameplay's limits in a dialogue between them and the game's thesis made RIOT a really experimental and interesting game, unique in its own approach to the genre.

The Eternal Castle [REMASTERED] try to demonstrate the current maturity of the videogame medium simply using a few modern tools in a structure inspired by the adventures of the 80s, playing with the player mind starting from the title.

4.5 / 10.0 - Vane
Jan 21, 2019

Beautiful visuals and suggestive atmospheres are not enough to save Vane, whose obscure and not always working mechanics make the player feel abandoned in a poorly conceived world.

More of a collection than a Deluxe Edition, New Super Mario Bros. U for Switch offers the opportunity to play an excellent 2D platform in the best possible way today.

It may be late and it may not be the best looking game of the year, but PUGB is still an enjoyable battle royale, that enriches the PS4 catalogue.

8.5 / 10.0 - Horizon Chase Turbo
Dec 5, 2018

Even if it feels like a 90's racing arcade, with marvelous landcapes and frenetic races, Horizon Chase Turbo doesn't give up showing a strong personality and a fresh low poly style.

Fanise's new game feels like an interesting way of remembering the Great War, but it does not take full advantage of the possibilities offered by the video game medium.

7.6 / 10.0 - Party Hard 2
Nov 5, 2018

An evident leap forward from the already notable first chapter. Not every new feature works out well, and the boss fights are here to prove it, but Pinokl's game stands as an interesting and funny little stealth game.

This is a game of pure wrestling which aims to replicate the most technical and psychological aspects of the discipline by offering a rigorous, but very rewarding gameplay. You need an investment in terms of hours and effort to get satisfaction from Fire Pro Wrestling World, but you'll get a game that can last, literally, decades.

Technical problems and imperfect controls prevent Shinobi Striker from really convincing, despite the mix of single player and multiplayer online could offer an interesting touch to the anime series.
