Even after the first few hours of the game, I had the feeling that I was in front of a wonderful title; after reaching the end credits, that feeling was definitely consolidated: The Last of Us Part II is one of the best video games of this generation, the best Sony exclusive and the real link between video game and cinema. Naughty Dog's work is superior to its predecessor in every respect, and raises the standards to which, from now on, any videogame will have to adhere, and believe me when I tell you that even just equalling this title will be an immense challenge, even for the most talented developer. But The Last of Us Part II is not a mere display of technique: it is emotion made videogame, it is a journey into the darkest part of our spirit, the one that we do not talk about willingly and perhaps we are ashamed of, but that is one of the faces that defines our human being, imperfect and beautiful at the same time. The second part of this adventure will shock you, but it will imprint itself in your memory like a brand, leaving in your mouth that bittersweet taste typical of the great works of the intellect, the ones we will talk about today and, above all, in the future. To give a grade to The Last of Us Part II seems almost an offense, so great and out of scale is the work done by Naughty Dog, but since an evaluation must be given, it can only be the maximum possible. To conclude, I'd like to give you an advice as a passionate player as I think I am: enjoy this adventure in the same way as a fine liquor, slowly, one sip at a time, enjoying every nuance, because it will be a long time before you can put your lips back on such a delicacy.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 is fun or not? If that's the question you're asking, the answer we have to give you is: Yes and no. The formula is pretty much the same one we're already used to, without much variation on the theme: destroy the first horde of enemies, head to zone 1, defeat the boss, and repeat everything. Despite a roster of characters as varied and vast as ever, this time Omega Force's recipe seems to have become stale, and would probably need a restyling, both in terms of gameplay and from a graphical and technical point of view. Recommended mainly to die-hard fans of the franchise, One Piece and musou.

9 / 10.0 - Nioh 2
Mar 18, 2020

Although starting from the excellent foundations laid by the previous chapter of the saga, Nioh 2 manages to innovate almost every aspect of it, proving to be a game of absolute excellence, able to meet the needs of every type of player. The most demanding and hardcore gamer will find his teeth, but even the user less accustomed to punitive mechanics will find his space, using certain builds and the Graves of Mercy. The soul cores and explosive counterattack are great additions to a gameplay already solid and compelling, but now it is even deeper and more varied, able to satisfy all palates. The only two flaws are the crafting and multiplayer, not developed enough, but nothing that may cloud our overall judgment.

Let's be very clear: One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is, all in all, a pleasant game, sometimes even fun, but that leaves a bitter taste in the mouth to anyone, even fans of manga, or anime. The fighting is the beating heart of the game experience, but it's burdened with commands that you'd hardly call farraginous and inaccurate. The technical sector does not do justice to one of the most beloved franchises of the land of the rising sun in recent years, and it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. Give it a chance, only six of you are a die-hard Saitama fans and partners, otherwise you'll move on, even if reluctantly.

Let's get it over with: Ghost Recon Breakpoint is only half successful. If the technical side leaves us with the impression, in some ways, of an unfinished beta, what leaves the most bitterness in our mouths is the failure to dare with the survival element, which could have brought us all back to the early days of the franchise. Despite what has now been said, however, Ghost Recon Breakpoint still manages to entertain those who play it, especially if you decide to live the adventure together with other "comrades-in-arms". We're sure that Ubisoft, with the release of some corrective patches, can give its fans a very good and exciting gaming experience. However, as we write these lines, the impression is that perhaps it would have been legitimate to expect a little more.
