For better or worse, Under Night In-Birth II [Sys:Celes] preserves the series identity with subtle upgrades that impact the gameplay positively. It's little for a wait of over a decade but there's no denying it's an excellent 2D fighter in the market.

10 / 10.0 - Tekken 8
Feb 8, 2024

The Tekken franchise has always had a strong presence among other fighting games, whether due to its cohesive story or its characteristic gameplay. What Tekken 8 did was maximize the experience provided to players to a level of excellence that steals the spotlight from Street Fighter 6 and Mortal Kombat 1 with perfect execution and exquisite delivery.

The Adventures of Panzer: Legacy Collection has two titles that had the opposite trajectory of old ports, and both are pretty fun. If they had been released back in the 8-bit classic era, they wouldn't be beneath [the other classics] and people would definitely dispute it in the rental shops during the weekends.

Even though Touhou Luna Nights is not that new in the eyes of players, it is always worth celebrating the arrival of a good title on all platforms. To enjoy this game, you just need to dedicate a few sincere hours, and you don't even need to have in-depth knowledge of the entire Touhou Project's complex narrative to enjoy the environment and characters.

8.5 / 10.0 - Lil Guardsman
Jan 23, 2024

Lil’ Guardsman’s witty humor and laid-back style make an investigation and puzzle title fun and leave the player eager to receive the next decree and continue with their interrogations, which could decide the future of Sprawl. Even without subtitles in Portuguese, it is a great recommendation for those who want a challenge to complete without rushing while having a lot of laughs.

6.5 / 10.0 - The Rumble Fish+
Jan 19, 2024

Having The Rumble Fish + available is good for those who always wanted to sate their curiosity but weren't willing to explore emulators. Even so, for our current era, it ends up feeling tasteless compared to the many options available. At least the low cost is a incentive for the enthusiasts and genre fans to acquire it without feeling guilty about it.

9 / 10.0 - The Cub
Jan 17, 2024

The Cub was developed in a unique way, in which it works like a platform game, a storybook or an animation, in which each chapter is an isolated story. It was created to convey a message and it manages to do so with flying colors, respecting all its references, but without using them as a crutch and creating a very rich and touching experience.

8 / 10.0 - SHINORUBI
Jan 12, 2024

Shinorubi's greatest merit is in breaking a nostalgic mold that limits the full potential that shoot 'em ups can achieve in current generations of games. The different game modes are also very welcome, and the different ships not only in terms of shooting, but also in size, add a differentiating factor. If there were a greater variety between environments and scenarios, this title would have everything to mark its name as an example to be followed for future projects.

8 / 10.0 - Raccoo Venture
Dec 22, 2023

We have a lot of platform titles, even more so these days, yet Raccoo Venture manages to stand out with charisma and personality, to the point of being able to bring several references and maintain its uniqueness. Fans of the genre will be in for a pleasant surprise with this raccoon guardian made by Brazilian developer Diego Ras.

GranBlue Fantasy Versus: Rising made sure to perfect the main aspect, its combat system, in a way that changed completely the series' look and is a good choice for its diversified and well-rounded cast. Sadly, the previous extras, which were big attractions too, were reduced to mere decorations, which is a sin with such a rich creative source to use.

It's a crime to divide the IREM classics in five tiny compilations, and IREM Collection Volume 1 unfortunately gets a blow that its next parts will also get. Besides the structural issues, the way these games are rereleased ends up eclipsing how fun they could be as a single package.

The King of Fighters XIII Global Match is a competent title by itself and it's worth having it in the library despite a few signs of age. Even though the online experience has some issues, it's interesting to see a game almost a decade old work so well with the right updates, managing to be dynamic and fun.

Agatha Christie - Murder on the Orient Express brings a highly competent police novel classic, pleasing those who read the book or who like investigation and puzzle games. What's missing, in my opinion, is a better suspense atmosphere, as the plot is unveiled in a very direct fashion, but this is hardly something that takes the shine out of Microids' good job.

The Smurfs 2: The Prisoner of the Green Stone continues the excellent job of the previous game, with a creative narrative, new skills and an excellent alternation between the fun adventure and harder challenges. The perfect combination for those who love the blue creatures and 3D platformers.

7.5 / 10.0 - Berzerk: Recharged
Nov 16, 2023

When I reviewed Quantum: Recharged, I highlighted how much these revamped titles needed to reinvent their presentation. Berzerk: Recharged was a great response, in many ways. We still have some problems that become increasingly evident with the exhaustive replication of the same template for the entire series, but just for bringing a different proposal, this game deserves to be highlighted.

7.5 / 10.0 - VISCO Collection
Nov 10, 2023

The straight-to-the-point work of VISCO Collection could bring some extra items to catch the attention of the most nostalgic gamers. On the other hand, there is no denying that the chosen ports are excellent and being able to play them online is a very welcome addition. Furthermore, it's a great collection to add to your library of gems from the golden age of gaming.

Headbangers: Rhythm Royale has an undeniable charisma, but it is held hostage by the content entirely focused on a single mode and the simplistic presentation. Who knows, perhaps after the release of some content packs and extra minigames it will become more attractive, as new game modes seem unlikely.

7 / 10.0 - Mail Time
Nov 2, 2023

Mail Time is not perfect and perhaps that is where its charm lies. It doesn't care about being polished or accurate, it just wants to deliver a smooth adventure for players to enjoy without rushing. Furthermore, there are still some things that need to be fixed, especially in the PS4 version.

6.5 / 10.0 - Haunted House
Oct 25, 2023

Haunted House is a good way to reinvent a 1980s classic, with a cool diversity of elements. However, it is in a middle ground of not being a roguelike that captures the attention of fans of the genre, but also does not relieve those who are not familiar with the style. In other words, if you enter this mansion, make sure you won't give up easily.

Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged firmly reinforces everything good that the first game had already brought, with some cool improvements, but without drastic changes. Toy car fanatics may even find strange the lack of one or another model at first, but this does not take away the shine of all the initial content, not to mention that many of these absences will probably be covered by future expansions.
