9 / 10.0 - Fez
Apr 27, 2021

Fez has a unique and visionary aesthetic, after all it is not trivial to unite the concept of Ueda with a visual style of the 8-bit era and that can be, at the same time, charismatic and profound; as well as mysterious and humorous. Fez's problems are few, probably the most serious of them being the fact that it is not very challenging: it is very easy to inductively solve the puzzles, and the real challenge is to find the hidden anti-cubes, but they are optional.

The Longing can be interesting, elegant, creative, deep and coherent, that is enough for us to consider it a great game.

In short, due to its design coherence, importance in mechanics, high artistic personality and conceptual depth, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is, of course, a must-have game for experienced dungeon crawlers or fans of the Shin Megami Tensei series who haven't played it yet. Due to its high difficulty and strenuous pace, both for combat and exploration, the title is not recommended for first-timers in the series, much less for those who have not played any RPG of the type.

Despite some gameplay issues and lack of innovation compared to the title that preceded it , NEO: The World Ends with You it has fun and accessible battles, an excellent and diverse soundtrack, a plot full of character, an inviting ambiance for character development and, above all, a very coherent overall design around some of Shibuya's popular culture. As such, it's an easy recommendation for anyone who liked its predecessor or who enjoys more dynamic action JRPGs.

8.5 / 10.0 - Unsighted
Sep 30, 2021

As an action RPG, Unsighted may disappoint by not being too complex in terms of evolving and managing the protagonist's internal economy, but as an action-adventure, it's versatile enough and has a solid and responsive gameplay. Although its concept of temporality can be frustrating at times, the title may appeal to those looking for sensitive narratives with a different connection to the gameplay. Furthermore, it is easily recommended for those who enjoy metroidvania-style exploration dynamics and dungeons like those of the 2D games in the Zelda series.

Capcom Arcade Stadium is a must-see collection for retro game lovers - especially shooters and beat 'em ups fans - and for video game enthusiasts. Many may not be entirely satisfied with the result of the Japanese company's work, but they will certainly only realize it after several coins spent on Capcom's emulated machines.

Save me Mr Tako is a title without great pretensions in the platform genre, but it manages to have a good soundtrack and to be very consistent in its gameplay and narrative. It is faithful to its influences, rescuing a nostalgic tone from that era and adding its own personality. However, a level design that is somewhat repetitive and subutilized game features are its main problems. Despite these caveats, Save me Mr Tako: Definitive Edition is an easy recommendation for platform game lovers who appreciate the aesthetics and gameplay of titles from the 8-bit era genre, especially the Game Boy.

Despite non-trivial performance issues that significantly detract from the experience, a simple game design in virtually all respects, and few innovations, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox still has the virtue of its predecessor in having a solid, accessible battle system, diverse and relatively balanced action-RPG, yet with some enhancements, plus a reasonably well-written story, well-designed characters and, above all, considerable refinement in vertical level design and exploration in and out of dungeons.

Given this overall balance, it's easy to see that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom PRINCE'S EDITION (Switch) is far from an exemplary action-RPG, there are high points, but in almost all of them there are also drawbacks. The title would have a lot to be improved mechanically both in the level design of the missions and in the action and RPG systems. On the other hand, the work captivates both in artistic aspects and in the variety and accessibility of its game design.

7.5 / 10.0 - Smelter
Apr 22, 2021

Smelter is easily recommended for those who like action games and 2D platform, but with the knowledge that you will have to live with independent moments of RTS and top-down shooter; which, in addition to being limited and uninteresting, may not appeal to you and can be an exhausting obstacle in the middle of your journey with Eve to rescue Adam.
