To evaluate a Turrican compilation is to evaluate, on the one hand, if the port is good or has flaws. On the other hand, the additions it brings. And of course the games that compose it and the selection made. Regarding the first, the port is well adapted to current platforms, visually and in terms of control. The add-ons are sparse and the menus are somewhat dull, but this is not detrimental to the final result. Of course the best are the games that compose it, because at the end of the day we are talking about 4 great games essential in the shelf of any fan of the genre. The only thing that really tarnishes the final result is the absence of Super Turrican 2, which would have made it a definitive and totally satisfactory compilation.

The King of Fighters XIV is a big comeback for the saga, and this Ultimate Edition version is an unbeatable opportunity to jump on the bandwagon. In addition to the very large base squad (not all of them are here, but we can't say that they have fallen short by a long shot), its well-adjusted gameplay, game modes and difficulty so as not to leave anyone behind, from the most novice to the most veteran, all the additional content that has been emerging is added, making it the most complete experience, and all at a good price.

We can not say that with this installment the saga moves away from the niche where his comfort zone was or dare to look even you to you to the greats of the genre, because the base and the way of telling the story remain unchanged, but the production values and the care devoted to the game have made a clear leap. With this, not only fans of the saga are in luck, but many fans of the genre who were looking at the saga without knowing whether to dare to approach or not, can try this installment as the best opportunity to do so. Ryza 2 becomes, on its own merit, the best installment of this long-running saga.

Bluecoats: North & South, proposes a curious mix between Risk, an RTS and an FPS, but staying very on the surface of each of them, and leaving the result with the feeling of being very little polished. It's entertaining, just like the original was, but it ends up being a bit of a no-man's-land. It depends a lot on what mentality you face it with, you can enjoy it a lot if it is looking for the flavor of the original, or not if you do it from the search for an update to these days.

Revolution Software has taken 26 years to bring us the sequel to Beneath to Steel Sky and, despite being a very small studio, they manage to show us a game that, although not technically perfect, delivers without problems, and offers us a good example of the genre that has managed to continue, despite the years that have passed, the story of the original. If you liked the first one, we definitely recommend this second installment. And if you haven't been able to enjoy it, take advantage of the fact that it's now free on GOG and Steam, and take it as a preview of what you can enjoy in this sequel.

90 / 100 - DiRT 5
Nov 6, 2020

Codemasters returns to the fray with the new installment of the saga, entrusting it to experts in the field and giving a great result in its return to the arcade. Technically it borders on a high level, although it is not exempt from needing certain improvements that, some are promised from the company such as adding compatibility with steering wheels, and others we can only think that they will surely be because right now they contrast in a somewhat incomprehensible way such as the absence of driver in the vehicles or interior movement of the steering wheel in the relevant camera, but none that affects the playability and great control or ability to entertain. The fact that it is one of the titles that will have a free update for XBOX Series X and PlayStation 5 is an added value for users of the Sony or Microsoft platforms.

Spellforce 3: Fallen God presents us with a great and careful narrative, which takes us by the hand of an original and attractive story, and spices it up with epic battles resulting from its RTS side. And it does so wrapped up in a very pleasant technical and artistic section. As a cherry on top, the fact that it is designed to be 100% enjoyable without having played any of the previous deliveries, makes it a product to be taken into account for lovers of both genres, bearing in mind that it does not innovate or go into depth in either of them.

85 / 100 - Partisans 1941
Oct 14, 2020

Partisans 1941 shows us a somewhat less known and exploited side of World War II, and it does so with a strategy game that mixes management, tactical combat, exploration and other elements that come together perfectly to have its own identity. A very fun first installment that promises and we hope it becomes a saga.

80 / 100 - Hotshot Racing
Oct 7, 2020

Hotshot Racing is a long-awaited game and, at times, it seemed that it was not going to come to fruition. Thanks surely to the alliance with Curve Digital and the invaluable collaboration with Sumo Digital, we finally have a game that promises to bring us the flavor of the driving arcades of the 90s to our current platforms and, although there will be users who may prefer to continue reliving the classics, if you prefer to expand your options here is a recommended one that would not clash between the games of the time.

90 / 100 - Let's Sing Queen
Oct 5, 2020

The death of Freddie Mercury was one of those that shook the entire society, Queen's music lovers, above all. However, their successes have transcended their time and, thanks to music video games, even those not versed in musical art, we can emulate and be part of the band in the best possible way. The game is full of songs and has enough modes to give it a little more life both alone, singing hand in hand with Freddie himself, and in company. The facility to get a microphone is completed by its wide compatibility with various types of devices. The only thing we inevitably miss is a greater selection of themes.
