8 / 10.0 - CARRION
Nov 27, 2021

By turning the roles of heroes and villains upside down, Carrion delivers a unique and fun experience. Literally incarnating a monster and causing chaos and destruction is cathartic, and adding a surprisingly appealing narrative to it all makes for a pretty complete experience. It falls a little short in one aspect or another, namely when it comes to incentives and rewards for the careful exploration of the world, but Carrion never ceases to be an extremely recommendable game.

The simplest way to describe Tetris Effect: Connected is as an unique sensory experience. The involvement of visual and aural effects with every action we take is sublime, and it's always a delight to see the entire screen reacting to our game. With so many game modes to explore, there's content here for long hours of great entertainment. This is one of the most successful audiovisual experiences on Switch, and quite possibly the best Tetris experience currently on the market.

8 / 10.0 - Aeon Drive
Oct 25, 2021

Aeon Drive is fast, it's demanding and, above all, it's a lot of fun! With mechanics that are simple to understand, but that set them apart from much of the competition, we never stopped having fun exploring well-designed levels and experimenting with new tricks. It lacks the excellence of other titles from the same genre, mainly due to some technical hiccups and small decisions less well achieved when it comes to placing traps. Still, it is definitely a game that deserves a bigger audience than what it got so far!

6.5 / 10.0 - Nexomon
Oct 9, 2021

Nexomon presents itself as an interesting alternative to the Pokémon series, although clearly of inferior quality. The monster capture and battle mechanics will be familiar and almost as fun as the most popular games, with this title featuring some refreshing ideas and a very captivating narrative. The lack of polish in various aspects of the experience clearly impacts in the final overall experience. Still, if it's a Pokémon clone you're looking for, there are very few offers as solid as this one.

F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch is a generally interesting and appealing metroidvania, but with too many problems and frustrating design options. This title features varied gameplay and high-quality platforming sequences, but the inconsistent and frustrating combat detracts too much from the enjoyment of the experience. The obvious lack of refinement results in immense wasted potential, making this title recommendable only to the most avid fans of the genre.

9 / 10.0 - Hades
Aug 28, 2021

Hades is a sublime experience and certainly deserving of all the praise it has received over the past year. With gameplay so juicy that we can only describe as addictive, with one of the most appealing visual and sonic aspects you can find, and with such a well-written narrative, we have no doubt that Hades is one of the best games currently available for PlayStation 5, and most likely the best roguelike produced to date.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a great and appealing offer for both Monster Hunter and JRPG fans in general. The combats are always intense, the narrative is captivating, and despite implementing so many complex systems and game mechanics, it manages to do it in such a balanced way that it manages to provide an intuitive and pleasurable experience. It's a pity the myriad of technical problems and some artificial intelligence problems hampered this experience, which is still highly recommendable.

3 / 10.0 - Protocol
Apr 30, 2021

Protocol is an unfocused, directionless mess of a game that tries to give too much without grasping the basics. The gameplay is frustrating, the dialogue is terrible, and the number of technical problems renders it almost unbearable to play. There are a few positives here, but they are so few and far between that they don't even come close to being worth going through this experience. Stay away from Protocol, and you will indeed have a nice day.
