10 / 10.0 - God of War
Jan 21, 2022

God of War is one of the best games of all time, and one of the few that I would rate as essential for any gamer. The impeccable PC adaptation makes this the definitive version of this modern classic and the perfect appetizer for a certain Ragnarök that is approaching this year. Unmissable.

Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX successfully brings two classic games to today's platforms. Even more than twenty years after their original releases, the unique concept remains fun and interesting, and the implementation of the search for a music catalog ensures that part of the magic of generating new monsters through discs remains preserved, albeit partially.

Baldo: The Guardian Owls is a curious case. The legend of the pure-hearted child has its merits, but as time passes in its world, it becomes clear that it lacks the refinement that makes its greatest references shine. Patient The Legend of Zelda and adventure games fans will find fun here, but it's not hard to think about what was missing for this game to reach higher levels.

Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain manages to successfully bring the dormant franchise to the new generation. Its almost complete focus on multiplayer and the relatively low number of minigames preclude a more incisive recommendation, but players who are aware of what to expect will find here one of the best educational games in years. After all, who was it who said that training your own brain can't be fun?

7.5 / 10.0 - Undungeon
Dec 6, 2021

Undungeon has its merits and should be on the radar of every player who wants an RPG that values the narrative and the complexity of its systems. Unfortunately, issues such as the stiff movement and questionable difficulty prevent the title from reaching the pantheon of great independent games, but it's undeniable that there's fun to be found here — it's enough that expectations are correctly adjusted to reality.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition was set to be one of this year's biggest and most celebrated releases. Unfortunately, due to multiple questionable decisions by those involved in the project, what we received was a collection that did little to deserve the nickname “definitive” registered in its name.

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is a welcome surprise among this year's RPGs. Every little detail oozes charisma and you can feel the developers' affection for their creation in virtually every moment of the game. The absence of more difficulty levels and the overall mechanics' simplicity may not suit everyone, and the line between calm and boredom is always a difficult one to traverse, but those who appreciate the proposal and moderate their expectations will find a concise adventure here, relaxing and — most importantly — fun.

8 / 10.0 - Evertried
Oct 27, 2021

In an increasingly competitive scenario, Evertried manages to stand out with its unique mix of turn-based strategy, grid movement and roguelite mechanics, proving to be a beautiful exponent of the interesting and growing Brazilian indie scene. Even its occasional problems are not enough to detract from a work that finds its best version on the Nintendo Switch, given its play style and the system's natural portability and flexibility. The hope is that an eventual sequel will expand the concepts presented here — the potential, like a certain haunted tower, is too great to go unnoticed.

8.5 / 10.0 - Metallic Child
Oct 23, 2021

Metallic Child is one of this year's welcome surprises. With a fun combat system, immersive storytelling and an impressive visual presentation, fans of action and roguelite mechanics will find lots of fun. Even the occasional setbacks aren't enough to detract from the shine of this adventure, which proves to be a consistent addition to Switch's already plentiful library of independent games.

In many ways, The Caligula Effect 2 (Switch) is what you'd expect from a sequel. With a fun combat system and a captivating narrative, one can notice a clear evolution of the concepts introduced in the first game of the franchise, so that even with the eventual technical problems, fans of the series and enthusiasts of a good JRPG will feel at home. Recommended.

9.5 / 10.0 - Tails of Iron
Oct 13, 2021

Tails of Iron is one of the most pleasant surprises this year. Although the art direction is the first feature that catches the eye, practically every element of Odd Bug Studio's work exudes quality, resulting in an easy recommendation to those who appreciate its proposal. Defeating a legion of frogs and rebuilding a brutally destroyed kingdom may not be so easy, but it sure is a lot of fun.

Awaited for years, Diablo II: Ressurected brings the adaptation of a classic work to the present day without its original essence being lost in the process. The visual and sound conversion deserves praise, and the ability to instantly switch between original and remastered visuals is the definitive addition in a complete, coherent package, capable of pleasing both veterans and newcomers to the series. When venturing against evil again, it is clear that some points could be reworked, such as movement and inventory. But the truth is, even its downsides can be lightened with a little patience — just keep in mind that in the 2000s, some things were a little different in the gaming world, for better and for worse.

7.5 / 10.0 - Gamedec
Sep 26, 2021

Although it has flaws in its execution, Gamedec is a recommendable title. The plethora of information available to the player can sometimes be annoying, but it's undeniable that solving cases and solving mysteries is fun. Fans of games with an emphasis on storytelling and freedom of choice will feel right at home, and cyberpunk-themed enthusiasts will also find entertainment — if expectations are properly balanced.

6.5 / 10.0 - King's Bounty II
Sep 7, 2021

King's Bounty 2 shows that sometimes less is more. When trying to offer two distinct experiences in the same package, this sequel unfortunately fails to realize the full potential of either part. Despite the problems, its combat system still looks interesting, so fans of the genre will still find fun here. But, for better and for worse, the warning is registered that the majesty cannot be sustained only in the deeds of the past.

9 / 10.0 - Axiom Verge 2
Sep 2, 2021

Axiom Verge 2 is one of those happy cases where the wait paid off. Compared to the first game, the sequel offers a distinct experience in which the exploration and reward mechanics are capable of providing unique moments. Its combat system could have been worked better, but any mishaps in this regard are not enough to tarnish a work that should be experienced by every player who claims to be a metroidvania fan. Here's a title that masterfully mixes the classic and the modern, and its setting alone would be worth the admission ticket, recommended.

7.5 / 10.0 - Boomerang X
Jul 16, 2021

Boomerang X is certainly a unique game. Fans of FPS and arena shooters looking for something different are sure to feel right at home, and the title's arcade feel makes it a good choice for unpretentious fun times. The gameplay here is the high point, and with a little practice it is possible to do cinematic moves. However, even with all the quality of the concept, there is no way to turn a blind eye to the amount of content present here, as well as to the fact that there is an untouched and unrealized potential in practically every corner of this creation.

10 / 10.0 - Everhood
Apr 18, 2021

Everhood is creative, precise, unique and engaging. It is refreshing to see a title experiment so much throughout its proposal and still deliver a harmonious and coherent final product. Although the soundtrack and the combat system are the highlights when analyzed individually, all the elements present here deserve praise. So, don't be fooled: here is an RPG that, although unconventional, deserves to be played by every fan of the genre, especially those who are not afraid of experiences that encourage thinking outside the box.

Overcooked! All You Can Eat is the complete and definitive version of two of the best multiplayer games of the past generation. Considering the two base campaigns and the inclusion of all expansions, newcomers will have plenty of content to explore, and the addition of features like cross-play and New Game Plus to the first Overcooked! give reasons to revisit the franchise’s delicious culinary chaos.

Neptunia Virtual Stars is not a bad game. Thanks to the light narrative, fans of the series will find here an opportunity to quell the longing for Neptune and his gang, who remain as charismatic as ever. However, the difference in gameplay between the protagonists ends up causing an imbalance that should not be ignored, and the very inclusion of VTubers seems shallow when looking at the product as a whole. Therefore, it is necessary to keep expectations in check; that way, walking around the planet Emote and flirting with the idol career will probably be much more enjoyable.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is one of those rare games, adorned with the power to fully absorb the player in its magic circle, making it very easy to play for hours in its universe. In addition to the great battles, there is a lot of fun to be found here in the various possibilities offered by the campaign, and enthusiasts of the genre are likely to be satisfied with the complexity that the game's subsystems can offer.
