Giuseppe Nelva's Reviews

"Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth."
9 / 10.0 - Watch Dogs
May 27, 2014

Watch_Dogs may not have the best story out there and certain elements may not be 100% perfect, but things mesh together in a beautifully large open world playground that will leave you wanting more, and will pretty much always provide what you're looking for.

8.5 / 10.0 - Destiny
Sep 9, 2014

Destiny may not be a masterpiece, but it beats quite a few masterpieces where it really matters.

8.5 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 2

Perfection is not of this world, but fun is, and Forza Horizon 2 comes with that in spades.

8.5 / 10.0 - Driveclub
Oct 7, 2014

Driveclub isn't a perfect game, but it's most certainly one of the most beautiful (if not the most beautiful) game ever released on consoles, also featuring one of the tightest, most fun and stimulating driving models you'll find on the market. It definitely succeeds where it counts, but it's a bit lacking in the frills department.

Arno's Paris is a modern marvel of the gaming world, and while its structure isn't flawless, I can't say I regret the time I lived in it.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Order: 1886
Feb 20, 2015

Yet, this is a high-quality first chapter of a promising new IP that fully deserves a chance from all lovers of an exceptional story and tight, fun cover shooting gameplay.

9.5 / 10.0 - Bloodborne
Mar 24, 2015

Yet, while it does have a few actual shortcomings, if you're willing to embrace its challenge and ruthless fairness, Bloodborne is most probably the best game released on PS4 so far, and one of the best experiences of this generation. It mixes pleasure and pain wisely, creating a special concoction that will keep you glued to the DualShock 4 (unless you throw it against a wall). The utterly fulfilling sensation you'll feel after finally beating some of the most resilient bosses will make you cry with joy. It's simply priceless.

While I ride, fight, smile, cry and love as Geralt of Rivia, I'm happy to be a gamer. I truly am.

5.5 / 10.0 - Hatred
Jun 1, 2015

It's a pretty competent action game with really great visuals, but marred by quite a few flaws. If you don't like playing with keyboard and mouse, then steer clear, but if you don't mind putting your controller aside, and you enjoy the genre, it can be worth quite a few hours of your time. I didn't hate Hatred, but I didn't really love it either. Yet, it's a pretty promising debut for a new indie team.

As Rocksteady's final love song to the Batman's franchise, Batman: Arkham Knight comes with some false notes, but it still plays like a great symphony most of the times.

So, is God of War III: Remastered worth its forty bucks price-tag? Unless a good story is absolutely necessary for you to enjoy a game, the answer is inevitably and overwhelmingly "yes" if you don't own the PS3 version.

8.5 / 10.0 - Until Dawn
Aug 24, 2015

While there are flaws here and there, Until Dawn is a very well put together experience, mixing great graphics and complex storytelling in a super-tight package. If you fit its very specific target, meaning that you enjoy the specific kind of horror it reproduces, and you don't mind old-style adventure-like gameplay and quicktime events galore, you'll find it a really exceptional and fairly unique game, that will scare the hell out of you in all the right ways.

9.5 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport 6
Sep 8, 2015

Turn 10's latest game leaks love for cars and car culture from every pixel. The studio didn't manage to make the Xbox One shine as much as it could with Forza 5, but with this sixth chapter, Microsoft's console is as bright as a star.

Even those who are bothered by the business model, can still experience the first five or six tiers of all the available nations without really needing to spend a dime, and enjoying a metric ton of great content and fun gameplay. There are some flaws here and there, but obliterating a cruiser with shells that weigh as much as a car is too satisfying to pass up.

The first three Uncharted games are among the best titles on PS3, and they hold their own majestically on PS4. If you didn't play the games on Sony's older console, and you're even remotely a fan of the genre, purchasing the collection is a no-brainer. If you already purchased the three titles separately on PS3, then the reasons to double dip are more limited, but if you love the series, this is definitely a very solid buy.

Ultimately, Rise of the Tomb Raider is definitely one of the best games released in 2015. It improves on its predecessor massively, and on basically every aspect of the game. It looks better, it plays better, it comes with more and better puzzles, a better story and a better Lara Croft to boot. While the Tomb Raider we got in 2013 wasn't by any means a bad game, I have no hesitation in saying that this is the game that finally does Lara Croft's glorious franchise justice.

Ultimately, Call of Duty: Black Ops III hits a lot of targets, but misses some, at times in ways that I struggle to understand. That said, it's fun, fast and it comes nicely wrapped with a ton of content and longevity. If you love first person shooters, you'll most probably sink a lot of hours into this game. It's not a revolution, but I can definitely define Treyarch's labor of love as a positive evolution.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is far from perfect, and I don’t see it bringing home any Game of the Year titles, but in today’s gaming landscape it’s certainly fairly unique. If that kind of uniqueness is what you enjoy, then you’ll most probably feel right at home on Zack’s new island. I certainly did, and plan to continue doing so for quite a while. Since the game won’t be available on the western market, the review copy used for this article was kindly provided by PlayAsia.

9 / 10.0 - Quantum Break
Apr 1, 2016

Ultimately, Quantum Break was obviously an experiment. On one side, I'd rather  see game developers and publishers focus their resources on telling their stories via the games themselves, but it's impossible not to recognize the value of this title as a game. It looks awesome, it plays great, and makes you feel really badass. What's not to love? Remedy is back, baby!

9.5 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 10, 2016

If that's your thing, then this game has tens of hours of bliss in store for you. Marquis de Sade used to say that it is always by way of pain one arrives at pleasure, and Dark Souls III certainly takes this concept to the next level.
