8 / 10.0 - Grounded
Sep 26, 2022

Grounded is among the most enjoyable survival experiences of recent years, and it is almost strange to emphasise this given that the title was not even supposed to exist. Obsidian, albeit with a small team, has crafted a stylistically original product, not without flaws, but composed of all those qualities with which the American team has always distinguished itself with its video games: quality writing, design and effective world building.

7.2 / 10.0 - Isonzo
Sep 22, 2022

Isonzo is a very good tactical online FPS, undoubtedly the best first-person shooter dedicated to World War I (or at least the most historically accurate). Despite this, however, the game suffers from clear balancing problems that undermine most of the games, as well as some technical issues that almost completely overshadow the very pleasing visual compartment. Having said that, if you love online FPSs and are looking for a title other than the classic 'run and gun', then Isonzo could really amuse you, especially with a close-knit team.

Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels is yet another excellent DLC dedicated to the Forza arcade franchise. Playground Games has taken one of the third chapter's best-loved add-ons and made it bigger, creating the biggest additional map ever for Forza Horizon. The fun is assured, as is the variety and the chance to drive the crazy fast Hot Wheels.

8.4 / 10.0 - F1 22
Jun 27, 2022

F1 22 continues the good work seen with F1 2021, introducing several improvements to the game's physics system while making the whole experience even more accessible for newcomers to the genre. It's not a revolution, but Codemasters' will seems to be to further improve year after year, trying to experiment with something new like the super cars, which even if they don't offer any particular changes, they still manage to provide something new to the game structure.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is without a doubt the most ambitious and huge LEGO title ever made by TT Games, a real act of love for those who love the popular Danish bricks and the whole Star Wars movie franchise. Its accessibility, without ever taking itself too seriously, makes it a videogame for everyone, capable of entertaining from the smallest audience to the most adult, confirming an experience for all ages and satisfying for everyone. Warner Bros. has therefore hit the nail on the head, giving us an adventure that is certainly one of the best of this 2022 in terms of quality and content.

While not introducing many new features compared to the fourth chapter, Monster Energy Supercross 5 reconfirms the good qualities seen in the past: a lot of fun and content that will satisfy the most hardened Supercross fans. Despite a visual component that could be improved, Milestone has worked more than satisfactorily on the physics section, setting a gameplay that is never trivial and accessible to everyone. In the future we wouldn't mind seeing a bit more, but until then the Supercross niche can still sleep easy and enjoy a title that meets their expectations.

8 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Mar 2, 2022

Gran Turismo has always been an extremely special title, far removed from the racing games you normally play: a title with a soul and with so much attention to detail for what cars represent. From this point of view, evaluating a product like Gran Turismo 7 was extremely difficult, because on the one hand we have Yamauchi's love for cars, full of content, descriptions and customisations, but on the other hand we are faced with a game anchored to dated dogmas, which do not favour the playful part much, immersing us in a game context where the A.I. is not very far from that of nine years ago and damages are once again practically non-existent. To the rescue of the game, however, we have an online component that seems to be the true soul of the title, which together with a satisfying driving model, make Gran Turismo 7 a must have for those who have always loved the franchise Made in Japan. Polyphony Digital now has the task of supporting the title in the years to come, first of all trying to introduce the interesting A.I. Sophy and improving the game just like it did in the past with GT Sport. If it succeeds, we will be faced with one of the best sim/arcade ever, accessible to everyone and above all of enviable quality.

7.6 / 10.0 - GRID Legends
Feb 25, 2022

GRID Legends is a solid and fun arcade racing game, not revolutionary but certainly not dull either. Codemasters has worked to improve on the critical aspects of the 2019 reboot, creating a title with enviable content and a revised (though not perfect) artificial intelligence. It's a pity that the story mode is a bit jumbled and customisation is reduced, but overall we're looking at a game that's highly accessible for those who aren't used to the genre, but also potentially satisfying for motorsport fans, assuming you're aware of a distinctly arcade driving model that's intentionally light and without any particular frills.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is a solid sequel and one of the best structured open worlds of recent years. The great work on the level design enhances a huge and varied game world, where the gameplay evolves hand in hand with our choices, giving life to an extremely dynamic and never monotonous adventure. In spite of a revisable artificial intelligence and a visual impact between high and low, Techland has managed to create a production of absolute level, an experience destined to lay important foundations for a franchise, now more than ever projected towards a rosy and even more ambitious future. Considering the many references and the vicissitudes related to its development, the end result is undoubtedly less obvious than we would have thought, it is certainly not the revolution expected a few years ago, but certainly a fair evolution of a title that tries, often succeeding, to excel where others have failed in Action / Adventure.

9 / 10.0 - Halo Infinite
Dec 6, 2021

Despite a turbulent development and many initial doubts, Halo Infinite succeeds where other FPS have failed: excite with a campaign level and entertain with a solid gameplay and well thought out. Remains the disappointment of some shortcomings at day one and especially a technical system suffering in many places and saved mainly by an unparalleled fluidity and an inspired art style. 343 has nevertheless managed to create a chapter ready to start again, through an incredible journey, decided more than ever to reconcile with the old fans of the saga and at the same time attract new potential users. The King of the first-person shooter on consoles is officially back, now the future is all in the hands of the American software company, which will have to prove that it knows how to manage and support the title for the next few years. Halo, is it over? No, this is just the beginning.

9.6 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 5
Nov 4, 2021

Forza Horizon 5 is the first true next-gen production of Xbox Series X|S (excluding Flight Simulator). In terms of production, the work is truly impressive and can only exalt the talent and skill of Playground Games in knowing how to create a video game that is both enormous in content and technically astounding. The Mexican Horizon festival is a real love letter to car game lovers, as well as a beautiful postcard to one of the most beautiful settings ever seen in a video game. Forza Horizon 5 is a masterpiece that will leave you speechless at every KM and entertained at every turn, ready to take its place among the best games of 2021 and therefore deserving of our award.

9 / 10.0 - Returnal
Apr 29, 2021

Returnal is a work of absolute quality, a triple A product that is completely disinterested in linear stories and well-acted tales, to embrace the game in the most literal sense of the term.

9.3 / 10.0 - Cyberpunk 2077
Dec 7, 2020

Is Cyberpunk 2077 really the masterpiece we expected? The answer can only be positive. Cd Projekt RED's sci-fi and dystopian experience is one of the best productions of the generation, as well as one of the best Action-RPGs ever.

It wasn't easy to work on Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. In fact, we are talking about a classic, which during the early 2000s failed to impose itself easily in the hearts of fans, between a simplification of the mechanics all too evident and a historical period not really loved.

7 / 10.0 - Bleeding Edge
Mar 27, 2020

Bleeding Edge is a surprisingly enjoyable, fun and originally styled online experience. Although its approach may initially seem too simplistic in the formula, in reality the game of Ninja Theory hides a deep and well-kept gameplay that, to be mastered, needs time and training.
