10 / 10.0 - God of War
Mar 14, 2018

Half-sequel, half-reboot. The return of Kratos comes with a new sidekick, in a new setting, in a new generation and with a new perspective. It’s one of the riskiest reboots in recent history for an high caliber franchise, full of ambition, that sets a new standard in narrative and action games. Without any doubt, one of the best games of the generation.

7.4 / 10.0 - State of Decay 2
May 16, 2018

It could be another survival zombie game, but the sequel for the 2013’s game, remixes known mechanics and core concepts in interesting ways, with a social component that will consume a lot fun of hours when played with friends.

Detroit: Become Human feels like the best Quantic Dream has ever put in all of their games. It is indeed an interactive movie, with quick time events as dialogue choices, but at every scene it makes us feel on the edge of our seat, hoping for the best of this cast of robotic characters and the world they live in.

“Amazing Spider-Man” would be a fitting name for this PlayStation exclusive. Fantastic visuals, an engaging and emotional story, a living breathing virtual New York city and the powers and abilities of one of the most popular Avengers, makes this game one of the best of the year.

It took over 20 years, but Ys finally came to the fore. Lacrimosa of Dana is an excellent action RPG with a clever focus on survival that, unfortunately, it can't keep up to its completion. The Switch version has its problems, namely the resolution, but when we see it moving, without frame breaks and with a solid performance, we understand how its quality was not harmed. Ys VIII is essential for all fans of the genre.

4 / 10 - V-Rally 4
Sep 12, 2018

There was a time when V-Rally was the hottest rally game in town. This new attempt of pulling the nostalgic strings only works by its name’s sake, with a game without identity, poor in content, buggy and with strange physics that makes the gameplay inconsistent and unpredictable.

Dragon Quest XI is not an RPG for everyone. It's a game that lives on its legacy and refuses to evolve with the genre, preferring to slow down its gameplay rather than completely transform it. If turn-based combat isn't your thing, Dragon Quest XI won't change your mind, but if you want a great RPG, with a charisma rarely found in the genre, and explore one of the most vibrant worlds we find on consoles, this is the game for you.

More focused on exploration and mystery, Shadow of the Tomb Raider encapsulate all the elements of the previous games in this reboot series and some of the oldest games too, but it presents a dull story with predictable twists that takes itself too seriously.

10 / 10 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 24, 2018

The most ambitious and risk taking Forza game yet. Built upon the previous game, Forza Horizon 4 take us to a virtual Britain and explores the concept of Games as Service with a dynamic and surprising racing game that never looks the same every time we play it. It’s beautiful, plays fantastic and it has one of the most complete and beautiful garages in the world.

Right off the bat, we have three fantastic games remastered and polished to a level that feels like they could be original games today. Spyro Reignited Trilogy is for old and new-school players. A nostalgic trip that offers hours of content in a charming and very focused collectathon platform.

5 / 10 - Fallout 76
Nov 20, 2018

Fallout 76 is the answer to a question that now would be great if unanswered: “What if Fallout but with multiplayer?” Unfortunately, this experience is a broken mess, full of technical problems, lack of direction, boring and repetitive quests, and some archaic design choices that don’t work very well in a shared environment.

8 / 10 - The Forest
Nov 20, 2018

The Forest is an excellent survival game that bridges the gap on the PS4. With the genre's popularity on the PC, it's always good to see titles like this one finally coming to the consoles and giving gamers an experience unlike anything else. The Forest is addictive, scary and very complete and if you have always wanted to survive on an island full of cannibals, then this is your chance.

Pokémon: Let’s Go is an absolute delight. It may not be the next big step in the franchise, but it’s the perfect remake that the fans would hope for, with easy to play mechanics, a charming aesthetic and all the nostalgia. A surprisingly solid game that can be played by everyone until we catch them all.

Nintendo Switch received the definitive Super Smash Bros. experience. Ultimate it’s quite literally the final form of this franchise with every character, every level and with deep mechanics, striking visuals, an absurd amount of game modes and all the fun of the previous games. After 20 years, this Nintendo mega-mashup still feels fresh.

It is, without surprises, survival horror in its pure state. The remake of Resident Evil 2 is everything the fans would hope for a current-gen RE. It takes all the core concepts of the original and twists them with a new fresh take and some mechanics from the also excellent Resident Evil 7. Lots of jump scares, great action, stunning visuals and a lot of content to explore and replay.

7 / 10 - Metro Exodus
Feb 27, 2019

With more open spaces to explore and out of the claustrophobic ruins of Moscow, Metro Exodus goes into an interesting direction showing a classic post-apocalyptic world more familiar to the fans of this genre. Flawed but charming, Artyom’s journey is full of emotions and action packed, in a well-paced game that has almost everything a Metro game should have.

Evoland: Legendary Collection is perfect for RPG fans, especially those who love and followed the evolution of the genre. There are countless references to discover and two games that spout love for the genre, something that becomes contagious as we move forward and understand the level of care in each game.

Codemasters is back at it again. After an almost experiment in a dedicated simulation game, DiRT Rally 2.0 stands on its own as a great spin-off game from the more arcade DiRT series. Every turn feels dangerous and every second counts, DiRT Rally 2.0 is authentic and visceral, but only for the most enthusiastic players.

10 / 10 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 6, 2019

Devil May Cry 5 looks, plays and sounds as pitch-perfect as its bombastic soundtrack. It nails pretty much everything in every department. The combat is super satisfying, with a deep list of skills, abilities and attacks; the story is cheesy but engaging and full of twists; and it is one of the most visually impressive games of this year so far.

6 / 10 - City of Brass
Mar 13, 2019

Despite its promises, City of Brass is an ideal game to buy on sale, where the fun will surely be measurable with your investment. It's a shame, but with the Switch building a stronger catalog every year, the competition is fierce and City of Brass doesn’t have what it takes to be a must buy game on Nintendo’s console.
