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.

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.

Ubisoft's StarLink Battle for Atlas is a brave, half-successful attempt to bring the "Toys to Life" back to life. The Ubisoft Toronto product gives life to a well-kept sci-fi universe with a fine design, accompanied by an appreciable soundtrack and a deep and fun gameplay. The plastic models that the company offers for its video game are well made and far from low quality, they have also convinced us for variety and originality. The real Achilles heel of the product is the excessive repetitiveness, which can already be felt in the medium term.

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.

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.

Batora: Lost Haven is an Italian production that convinces and satisfies from start to finish. The lively art style and varied gameplay make the work of Stormind Games one of the most appreciable Italian titles of recent years.

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.

8 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
May 16, 2018

For those who thought they were facing a more of the same you will have to change your mind: State of Decay 2 is an excellent sequel, which improves the first in all respects.

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.

8.3 / 10.0 - Minecraft Dungeons
May 22, 2020

Minecraft Dungeons is a very fun and definitely accessible experience for everyone. Its perfect balance allows it to be appreciated by anyone, a job not easy for Mojang Studios and Double Eleven.

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.

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.

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.

If with Age of Empires II HD Edition Forgotten Empires has extended the life of ten years to the popular strategic Microsoft of 1999, this Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is very likely to do the same.

Considering that it is the first work by Striking Distance Studios, the level reached by The Callisto Protocol is certainly very high. We are looking at one of the best audio-visual experiences of this generation, surrounded by gameplay that is anything but trivial and a truly noteworthy atmosphere.

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.

Giving the right value to a remake of this type is not easy, especially when it comes to a masterpiece like Demon's Souls.

8.8 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

Control is undoubtedly the most ambitious video game ever made by Remedy. The Finnish software house did not want to give life to a story for its own sake, but to a universe that can grow, mature and become something important in the videogame scene over time.
