6 / 10 - Rage 2
May 17, 2019

Rage 2 is certainly colorful, frenetic, chaotic and plays extremely well. Unfortunately, everything else feels and looks uninspired, in a game with an uneven tone between parody and something unnecessarily serious and generic.

A Plague Tale: Innocence took us by surprise as one of the most endearing games so far this year. A linear experience focused on the journey of two brothers through the mud and blood, while they run away from the Inquisition and face the dangers of the Great Plague. With familiar mechanics and a satisfying gameplay through the story, A Plague Tale: Innocence is a great break from the all explosive games in the market.

Mortal Kombat 11 feels like a celebration for this series. Comes with a refined, precise and familiar gameplay, it has a lot of content to be played solo or against other players, and it offers enough accessibility mechanics to became friendly to newcomers without compromise more challenging experiences.

8 / 10 - Days Gone
Apr 25, 2019

Despite a boring start with repetitive missions - that expose most of its technical and narrative problems - , Days Gone is a very special game. I feel like the more I played, the more I wanted to explore the dangerous world it has to offer and the more I wanted to follow Deacon's emotional journey.

Yoshi’s Crafted World is a very self-aware and adorable game thanks to its impressive visuals and aesthetics. Simple and full of little surprises, it represents what Nintendo does best for the younger public in platform games with easy to play mechanics.

With Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, FromSoftware stands tall when it comes to truly challenging games with strong storytelling and great action. With the fastest, ruthless and extremely satisfying gameplay yet, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is also a great starting point for newcomers of this genre, thanks to some design choices and simplified progression mechanics.

10 / 10 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 6, 2019

Devil May Cry 5 looks, plays and sounds as pitch-perfect as its bombastic soundtrack. It nails pretty much everything in every department. The combat is super satisfying, with a deep list of skills, abilities and attacks; the story is cheesy but engaging and full of twists; and it is one of the most visually impressive games of this year so far.

8 / 10 - Dirt Rally 2.0
Mar 1, 2019

Codemasters is back at it again. After an almost experiment in a dedicated simulation game, DiRT Rally 2.0 stands on its own as a great spin-off game from the more arcade DiRT series. Every turn feels dangerous and every second counts, DiRT Rally 2.0 is authentic and visceral, but only for the most enthusiastic players.

7 / 10 - Metro Exodus
Feb 27, 2019

With more open spaces to explore and out of the claustrophobic ruins of Moscow, Metro Exodus goes into an interesting direction showing a classic post-apocalyptic world more familiar to the fans of this genre. Flawed but charming, Artyom’s journey is full of emotions and action packed, in a well-paced game that has almost everything a Metro game should have.

9 / 10 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 28, 2019

It is, without surprises, survival horror in its pure state. The remake of Resident Evil 2 is everything the fans would hope for a current-gen RE. It takes all the core concepts of the original and twists them with a new fresh take and some mechanics from the also excellent Resident Evil 7. Lots of jump scares, great action, stunning visuals and a lot of content to explore and replay.

Nintendo Switch received the definitive Super Smash Bros. experience. Ultimate it’s quite literally the final form of this franchise with every character, every level and with deep mechanics, striking visuals, an absurd amount of game modes and all the fun of the previous games. After 20 years, this Nintendo mega-mashup still feels fresh.

Pokémon: Let’s Go is an absolute delight. It may not be the next big step in the franchise, but it’s the perfect remake that the fans would hope for, with easy to play mechanics, a charming aesthetic and all the nostalgia. A surprisingly solid game that can be played by everyone until we catch them all.

5 / 10 - Fallout 76
Nov 20, 2018

Fallout 76 is the answer to a question that now would be great if unanswered: “What if Fallout but with multiplayer?” Unfortunately, this experience is a broken mess, full of technical problems, lack of direction, boring and repetitive quests, and some archaic design choices that don’t work very well in a shared environment.

Right off the bat, we have three fantastic games remastered and polished to a level that feels like they could be original games today. Spyro Reignited Trilogy is for old and new-school players. A nostalgic trip that offers hours of content in a charming and very focused collectathon platform.

10 / 10 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 24, 2018

The most ambitious and risk taking Forza game yet. Built upon the previous game, Forza Horizon 4 take us to a virtual Britain and explores the concept of Games as Service with a dynamic and surprising racing game that never looks the same every time we play it. It’s beautiful, plays fantastic and it has one of the most complete and beautiful garages in the world.

More focused on exploration and mystery, Shadow of the Tomb Raider encapsulate all the elements of the previous games in this reboot series and some of the oldest games too, but it presents a dull story with predictable twists that takes itself too seriously.

4 / 10 - V-Rally 4
Sep 12, 2018

There was a time when V-Rally was the hottest rally game in town. This new attempt of pulling the nostalgic strings only works by its name’s sake, with a game without identity, poor in content, buggy and with strange physics that makes the gameplay inconsistent and unpredictable.

“Amazing Spider-Man” would be a fitting name for this PlayStation exclusive. Fantastic visuals, an engaging and emotional story, a living breathing virtual New York city and the powers and abilities of one of the most popular Avengers, makes this game one of the best of the year.

8.6 / 10.0 - Detroit: Become Human
May 27, 2018

Detroit: Become Human feels like the best Quantic Dream has ever put in all of their games. It is indeed an interactive movie, with quick time events as dialogue choices, but at every scene it makes us feel on the edge of our seat, hoping for the best of this cast of robotic characters and the world they live in.

7.4 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
May 16, 2018

It could be another survival zombie game, but the sequel for the 2013’s game, remixes known mechanics and core concepts in interesting ways, with a social component that will consume a lot fun of hours when played with friends.
