7.8 / 10.0 - Spacebase Startopia
Apr 1, 2021

Simulation and management games are never simple and intuitive and often the gaming experience improves with knowledge of the same. In this case, in Startopia, by combining more fields - economic management and RTS - the difficulty increases, but also the enjoyment of the game itself. With the graphic and sound aspect, which are really detailed and cared for and a detailed and fun setting, the result is a satisfying game from many points of view. Although the descriptions are really numerous and accurate, I would undoubtedly improve the explanations of the missions or add a summary of the resources or production methods to the main menu, even if only for those who want to waste time reading all the curiosities. Absolutely useful for those who, like me, have no idea what to do or how to do it. Therefore, Spacebase Startopia is absolutely worth playing. Lose yourself in the clubs and kitten cafes, clear the bridge of uncivilized alien waste and fight crime with advanced space technology! And let's hope that, for once, VAL changes its mind about the forms of carbon!

Endzone - A World Apart has turned out to be a rich and articulated management game, but one that risks filling a bit in the long run, especially when the community that the player carries on his shoulders will acquire a certain weight. Despite this, the challenge offered by the game turns out to be decidedly satisfying despite its not indifferent punishment, making it a must for all fans who’re looking for a considerable challenge in this genre.

Unlike previous versions, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New'n'Tasty arrives on Switch with a few graphic stumbles, sacrificing some aspects from a visual point of view. For those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of taking part in this great escape in the role of the nice Abe this version remains a good edition albeit with some compromises that manages to entertain especially thanks to the possibility of using it portable.

6.4 / 10.0 - Black Legend
Mar 30, 2021

Black Legend is a game with interesting ambitions. The gameplay is well structured in the fights, the dark atmosphere of the lost city in a mad alchemy of madness and violence is well executed in some respects (such as the voice acting and one of the side quests) and also some of the themes raised by the discovery of the origins of the fog are of good depth. Unfortunately, the many technical shortcomings don’t allow you to enjoy the game without being distracted by the aforementioned discordant notes but, if you are a fan of tactical RPGs, give it a try. Grant's misty streets could be worth the ticket price, especially in sight of patch improvements.

Lost Words: Beyond the Page is a beautiful and moving interactive story that I highly recommend to anyone who appreciates titles that leave something behind after playing them and that manage to convey feelings and emotions even with simple gameplay, which nevertheless proves damn effective for that the developers wanted to achieve. If you are looking for a high level of challenge you certainly won’t be satisfied by this production, which is by choice accessible and comforting, also suitable for children while dealing with very mature topics and themes.

6 / 10.0 - Paradise Lost
Mar 25, 2021

A challenge for the most hyperactive of you who will find the story a little slow but certainly very interesting. The graphic level after all is not too bad especially if we consider that the setting recalls a steampunk style that is always beautiful and makes us postpone some lack. The audio is a little bit strange, with the sporadic feeling of being followed by someone that in reality it’s your own step, but there’s the very well-chosen music that accompanies us and this is very appreciated. The game isn’t free from some bugs that even if disabling don’t fatally compromise the outcome of the adventure which is full of check points that will make us solve a possible programming problem. Paradise Lost is a little adventure to enjoy in a couple of alternative afternoons, although I regret a little that it could have been something more.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is an excellent free update for those who already owned the old-gen version of the title, with improved framerate and resolution and considering the low price it’s also the perfect opportunity to buy it for those who had only the next-gen consoles and hasn't had a chance to try the game on PS4 or Xbox One. The difficulty in classic mode is really hard and will give even the most experienced players a hard time while the modern one, with checkpoints, is suitable for all types of players and the amount of hours of fun guaranteed by this new chapter of Crash Bandicoot, between main and secondary levels, is really high.

7 / 10.0 - Samurai Shodown
Mar 23, 2021

Samurai Shodown maintains its identity, even after many years, while supporting the evolution of the video game market. Fans will be able to meet their favorite fighters with better graphics to increase the enjoyment of the game and also benefit from new special attacks, each always reflecting the characteristics of the characters. Neither the story of the game nor the plots of the characters are deepened, as happens for example in other titles such as Mortal Kombat, the dynamics of the game in this one remain much more similar to other types of fighting games, such as Tekken. There are no advancement bonuses provided for the playing time of the characters, nor items that can be unlocked or purchased to increase the level or attack power of the characters. But there are numerous game variations and modes: Survival, Timed, Versus and Online. On the other hand, the innovative advanced learning technology and the improvements made to the graphics unlock a whole new sector of the game that greatly increases longevity and fun by adapting to the characteristics of the player.

6.6 / 10.0 - Sir Lovelot
Mar 20, 2021

Sir Lovelot is a game that I recommend, especially considering its low price and definitely in line with the content offered. Sir Lovelot requires attention, patience, sensory memory and reflexes, rewarding the player with a few hours of fun seasoned with a slight humorous aura. A title suitable for anyone who wants to try to get closer to the genre without jumping directly into that slaughterhouse, literally, which may be Super Meat Boy, but which perhaps will not be able to satisfy those who already come from those peaks that are unattainable for me now.

The Blizzard Arcade Collection is a very valid work from different points of view especially for the work done by the developers who haven’t limited themselves to simply re-proposing the basic versions of the games but who have added several possibilities with the final versions but also with a lot of accompanying contents to show users the history and life of the company from the 90s to today. In short, this collection is a very good work if you want to recover the history of videogames and go deeper into titles that characterize it.
