LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga does everything right. The new mechanics work, some of the changes fit, and the content from all nine movie episodes is a godsend for fans. However, it's a shame that the game time doesn't match it, which, while not negligible, runs into pacing issues when trying to tell the story of the entire saga.

8 / 10 - Tunic
Mar 16, 2022

Tunic is precisely the short but awesome game that so many players are missing these days. But, even if you’re left wanting more after finishing it, what you get is a meticulously crafted and heartfelt game that deserves more than a few praises.

At first glance, Sniper Elite 5 doesn't do much new and follows the same old patterns. For the most part, that statement is true. Still, there's a sense of a step forward during gameplay—both in terms of the gameplay itself and the level design. Shame the story is still so uninteresting. Perhaps next time?

Persona 5 Strikers is, rather than a spin-off, a direct sequel that fans of the original shouldn't overlook. It's a bit more complicated for the newcomers, but an interesting story and well-made combat, albeit with some mishaps, make this a quality time even for them.

Against the Storm is a surprisingly well-functioning combination of city-builder and rogue-like game. The gradual expansion of options that increase your responsibilities creates an excellent gameplay loop that many similar games can often lack. Bravo!

9 / 10 - Alan Wake 2
Oct 27, 2023

Alan Wake 2 is a masterful work of craftsmanship that pushes the boundaries of audiovisual and story presentation to the next level. Sure, It lacks in some ways - especially in the gameplay, which could still use more. All in all, though, it's a unique experience that won't get lost in the wave of other big titles this year.

The remake of Resident Evil 4 is, in one word... admirable. The developers managed to take a beloved original and not forget, with all the changes, what made it so special. You don't see that very often. Let's give it a round of applause, and hats off to you, Capcom.

The eighth Resident Evil game tried something that may seem like a really bad idea. In the end, though, not everything is as black and white and the developers managed to deal with the painful and challenging path before them. Resident Evil Village can not only count itself as one of the best games of the year, but also as one of the best games of the series.

9 / 10 - Hitman 3
Jan 25, 2021

Hitman 3 might not offer a lot of new things at first glance, but the new locations are some of the more interesting in the trilogy and the series, and the game still proves that - in terms of gameplay - it has basically no rival. It's a shame that the story isn't very good and that the last location is, in comparison to the other ones, small and linear.

Desperados 3 might not be a huge revolution in the real-time stealth action genre at first glance. And, in fact, it's not. What it is, however, is an incredibly robust game that will keep you on your toes, will make you feel smart and - especially - will entertain you from start to finish.

If nothing else, Tears of the Kingdom proves how revolutionary Breath of the Wild was six years ago. The new installment doesn't attempt to redefine the series further or revolutionize game design. It both threads the path of its predecessor and improves upon it. And as it also proves, that sometimes you don't need anything more than that.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe doesn't just make fun of other games. It makes fun of itself and its successes and shortcomings. And it's all wrapped up in the same expert presentation as the original game all those years ago. There's more than enough new content, the new jokes are fun, and the use of old scenery in new ways is simply brilliant. The whole game is, in short, merely brilliant.

10 / 10 - Elden Ring
Feb 23, 2022

Elden Ring is a game about which a lot of positive and very few negative things can be said. But we'll keep it short: this is easily a game of the year contender and quite probably FromSoftware's best title yet.
