Not the best possible remake for a Mega Drive classic largely unknown to Western players. After the good rehearsals seen during the technical remake of The Dragon's Trap, Wonder Boy Asha in Monster World struggles to impress in the same way. A gameplay that does not have the courage to dare, a difficulty too calibrated downwards and an unpired 2.5D graphic look leave a certain bitter taste in the mouth once you reach the credits.

8 / 10.0 - Legend of Mana
Jun 25, 2021

Legend of Mana's Remastered is a golden opportunity to rediscover one of the lesser-known episodes of the historic Square-Enix series. Although certain playful and narrative elements show the signs of the time, there is no denying some intriguing ideas that have made it live up to the name it bears: the possibility of shaping the game map at will through the Artifacts and a far from linear adventure process leave the player the freedom to approach the game as he sees fit , discovering little by little the many stories, secrets and great battles that this fantastic world has to offer.

The Nintendo Switch version of Sky Children of the Light manages to convincingly replicate what has been seen in the last two years on iOS and Android systems. Thatgamecompany's work keeps intact the social components behind the adventure and the incredible artistic direction of the brilliant team led by Jenova Chen.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Forgotten City
Aug 4, 2021

The transformation from mod to real game was long, but the final result fully convinced us. The Forgotten City is an intense and engaging journey, enhanced by an exceptional quality of dialogue and a script studied with great care and passion.

6.5 / 10.0 - FORECLOSED
Aug 12, 2021

Once at the end credits the feeling that leaves Foreclosed is that of a missed opportunity, of a good basic idea rendered only half, of the bitter taste in the mouth for what could have been a small, big surprise on the part of the Italian independent scene. Let's be clear, the title signed Antab Studio has arrows to its bow. Using the different cybernetic powers of Evan Kapnos is a pleasure and offer enough variety to the fights, and the cyberpunk atmospheres that you breathe are engaging enough to push you to want to get to the bottom without stopping.

7 / 10.0 - Echo Generation
Nov 1, 2021

Playing Echo Generation conveys a chiaroscuro of sensations. You are impressed by the beautiful graphics, a very inspired soundtrack and an effective and creative turn-based combat system. On the other hand, however, the numerous structural limitations of a product that with a few more tricks could have proved even more brilliant than it turns out to be in practice do not go unnoticed.

5.5 / 10.0 - Bloodshore
Nov 13, 2021

Ultimately, Bloodshore is a title capable of offering some jolts of nostalgia to fans of the old FMV productions, with a proposal that is however far from memorable.

Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All leaves discordant feelings once finished. It is a beat 'em up capable of entertaining thanks to its indignant rhythm, its hilarious fights and the genuine sympathy of the universe created by Goscinny and Uderzo that also works well in a videogame key.

Yet another adventure by Asterix and Obelix published in recent years, yet another production that fails to take flight. Indeed, Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram from Hibernia is perhaps the least successful production among those published by Microids focused on the famous Gallic duo.
