5 / 10.0 - Taxi Chaos
Mar 6, 2021

Taxi Chaos presents some fleeting moments of chaotic gameplay but lacks the required personality to reach its inspiration’s heights. You can tell there is some passion behind it, and there are some interesting ideas, but its graphics and music are uninspired, and the overall package offers lacklustre of content. When played casually, you can get a few moments of fun out of it, but only the staunchest Crazy Taxi fans will be able to get some enjoyment from this attempt to revive its formula.

Control Ultimate Edition on the PlayStation 5 is a great example of what the new generation of consoles is capable of when compared to the previous. Graphics and performance are noticeably improved and bring some justice to this adventure’s very fun gameplay. Although some fundamental problems persist, before us is a much more consistent experience which is hard not to recommend to any fan of action games.

9.5 / 10.0 - Cyber Shadow
Feb 6, 2021

Cyber Shadow isn’t merely a nostalgia inducing adventure, but a triumph of modern game design. It’s demanding, it’s challenging, and despite a few exaggerated difficulty spikes, it grabs us with its rewarding easy to understand but hard to master gameplay. It’s a visual and auditory delight from beginning until end, and a game to which we will keep coming back in the future. Cyber Shadow is a game of undeniable quality, and one of this year’s first mandatory experiences.

8 / 10.0 - The Pedestrian
Jan 29, 2021

The Pedestrian is a very accomplished puzzle game. With a very creative premise, a genuine surprise of a twist and a unique atmosphere, the whole experience is pure pleasure. Its levels are very well designed and presents a unique and captivating take on 2.5D environments. I just wish it challenged me more and it had more replay value. All in all, The Pedestrian ends up being a contained and relaxing experience, which may be ideal for this troubled start of the year.

6 / 10.0 - Ponpu
Dec 21, 2020

Ponpu presents us with a creative idea than ultimately isn’t that well executed. The Bomberman-style gameplay lacks depth, and after a handful of levels you realize the futility in deep level exploration. The multiplayer modes are a bit more achieving but are still just a short distraction. The visual style and the interesting idea are worth something, but for every positive there is also a negative. Ponpu’s wasted potential is palpable.

Demon’s Souls is everything I hoped, and a bit more. Combat is still precise, challenging and rewarding, and the world is as beautiful as it is bleak. With its new coat of paint and notable improvements to the game’s quality of life, this is without a doubt an ultimate Souls experience. It is mandatory for players who went through the original experience, as well as for those who passed it by. It’s a true next gen game, and a phenomenal start for the PlayStation 5!

When it comes to original entries, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is a triumphant return for the beloved marsupial. Using the remade trilogy’s excellent framework, this title offers a more varied, gratifying, and challenging gameplay. With an absurd number of challenges to overcome and a new shining art direction, we risk affirming this is Crash Bandicoot’s best entry yet. Before us is an excellent experience, one which is mandatory for fans of platforming games.

7 / 10.0 - Ghostrunner
Nov 19, 2020

When it works as intended, Ghostrunner is one of the most exhilarating games of the year. It is brutally challenging, presents a frantic rhythm, and its gameplay is stylish and rewarding. But some frustratingly designed sections, inconsistent AI, and several bugs stop it from achieving excellence. There is a lot to love about Ghostrunner, which can become something truly special with a bit more work and care put into it.

Nexomon: Extinction assumedly presents itself as a Pokémon clone. Even though it does not deviate enough from the formula set by Game Freak, this title ends up offering some fresh ideas that make it memorable. The narrative is more mature and has a delicious sense of humor, and the variety of well-designed creatures gives it a sense of wonder until the end. Some technical issues and unpolished aspects somewhat limit the overall enjoyment, but before us is an excellent base on which something special can be built within the genre.

9 / 10.0 - Manifold Garden
Aug 24, 2020

Manifold Garden offers an experience both challenging and stunning, in equal measures. With absolutely beautiful visuals and a set of simple mechanics it cleverly takes to its limits, it is not an exaggeration to affirm we are before one of this genre’s best and most creative games. Above all, Manifold Garden is memorable and easily recommendable, even to those less used to puzzle games.
