MondoXbox's Reviews

8.5 / 10.0 - Grounded
Sep 26, 2022

Grounded is a deep and compelling survival game that immerses us in a fascinating world waiting to be explored, full of challenges and graced by an excellent co-op mode. It's a game that doesn't hold the player by hand, and for this reason it can often leave you stumped requiring a lot of tenacity and patience, but it can also offer great rewards. Recommended for survival game fans and newbies alike, especially those eager to enjoy it with friends.

7.2 / 10.0 - Serial Cleaners
Sep 25, 2022

Serial Cleaners is a stealth game with a unique concept and an apt visual style, but with not too original gameplay by the standards of the genre. Nevertheless, the excellent presentation makes it a worthy title for all fans of the genre.

Sep 25, 2022

Disney Dreamlight Valley comes with a solid and content-rich base. The adventure is very enjoyable to play, and the never-complex mechanics may bring the game closer to a younger audience. With the addition of new content and the correction of some flaws, it could become a real time-absorber for Disney and Pixar fans.

7.4 / 10.0 - Isonzo
Sep 24, 2022

Isonzo is a historically accurate WW1 shooter, with slow and long battles to conquer a few meters of the battlefield. Definitely an improvement over the previous games of the series, but it still needs some refinements and fixes, especially in balance and variety, to really be an unmissable game.

8.7 / 10.0 - Deathloop
Sep 23, 2022

Deathloop is yet another confirmation of Arkane Lyon's unbridled creative talent. It captures us from the very first moments thanks to an intriguing premise and keeps us glued to the pad until the end credits with a constantly evolving gameplay, enhanced by a unique styling and a basically perfect level design. Enemy AI and the shooting system could have been better, but regardless of these limitations it's a game absolutely worth trying.

6 / 10.0 - SBK 22
Sep 22, 2022

SBK 22 brings on the one hand the deep driveability characterizing Milestone's motorcycle simulations, but on the other hand it comes across almost as a clone of MotoGP 21, stingy in content and with various issues in urgent need of correction. Recommended only if you have not previously played the last MotoGP games.

8 / 10.0 - Soulstice
Sep 19, 2022

Soulstice combines a fascinating setting, two well-characterized protagonists, an engaging storyline and a gameplay that, albeit with a few smears, is capable of providing many hours of fun. It's not a perfect game, with the troublesome camera handling as its major flaw, but it's still a game that every lover of third-person action games should consider.

9 / 10.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 17, 2022

NBA 2K23 has once again hit the jackpot. The very rich offering in terms of modes, a more refined gameplay, an increasingly realistic AI and a top-notch graphical appearance make it an unmissable title, despite some minor imperfections.

7.5 / 10.0 - Metal: Hellsinger
Sep 13, 2022

If taken as a simple FPS, Metal: Hellsinger would be an average one, due to non-stellar graphics, short levels and repetitive boss fights. But add its heavy metal rhythm game gameplay to the mix, and you'll find yourselves captivated by the challenge of flawlessly executing every level, aiming to obtain the highest multiplier possible by hitting enemies following the great head-banging music tracks.

8 / 10.0 - Little Orpheus
Sep 12, 2022

Little Orpheus is a truly enjoyable and well-packaged adventure, with a great storyline, a sparkling script and a setting capable of capturing the player's attention from start to finish. The extremely linear gameplay doesn't mesh too well with console game standards, but it is undoubtedly a title to behold.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is more than just a remaster, with many new contents and meaningful gameplay improvements with more technical fights and the 60 fps frame rate. Too bad we can't say the same about its online multiplayer gameplay, which can feel almost unplayable due to the delay-based netcode. All in all, this would be an advised buy only if you're planning alone or in local multiplayer.

6 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Sep 3, 2022

Saints Row is not the reboot the series needed, significantly limiting the levels of insanity and comedy that are the hallmark of the series, while maintaining a gameplay that is now dated and in need of a serious makeover. This made it a decent but soulless title, definitely forgettable in today's landscape. If you're looking for a not-too-demanding open world it can still wring a few laughs out of you, but at the moment Saints Row smacks too much of a wasted opportunity. The series has great potential, but it needs a real leap forward if it is to have a future.

8 / 10.0 - LEGO Brawls
Sep 2, 2022

LEGO Brawls may have more content than substance, but it succeeds in the intent of creating an accessible and fun competitive party game, and the incredible amount of characters, weapons, and customizations to be unlocked make it a title worth playing for months to come, as long as you are not looking for deeper, more technical gameplay.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is a true love letter to Konami's own TMNT titles, and one of the best collections of this kind seen to date, with a huge amount of content and extra features such as online play and a very complete Ninja Turtles encyclopedia. A must buy for every lover of the classic TMNT games.

8 / 10.0 - Madden NFL 23
Aug 27, 2022

With the introduction of FieldSENSE, Madden NFL 23 represents a turning point for the series, on next-generation consoles. A few technical smears still remain, and we hope they will be promptly fixed, but the homage to the great John Madden and the innovations in gameplay make it definitely recommended to all fans of this sport.

7 / 10.0 - Thymesia
Aug 24, 2022

Thymesia sports a compelling story coupled by an intriguing souls-like combat system, but it's constrained by excessively linear levels and complete lack of any dubbing. Regardless, if you're looking for a challenging action game, you should definitely give it a chance.

Aug 15, 2022

Way of the Hunter is a good hunting simulator that presents the player with excellent gameplay and full freedom for those who do not want to follow the events of the story. It does not convince, however, on the technical front, with dated graphics, pop-up issues and frame-rate drops regardless it's a current-gen-only game.

8 / 10.0 - MADiSON
Jul 31, 2022

Bloodius Games packs a mature work, visceral in its telling us about the slow descent into the abyss of human madness, framing Luke's journey as one of the darkest and most intriguing experiences in the horror landscape in recent years. MADiSON is a macabre dance of pure anguish and wonder, which, barring some smearing or abuse of cliché, is recommended for anyone looking for a mature and never trite horror experience.

7.5 / 10.0 - South of the Circle
Jul 30, 2022

South of the Circle is a fascinating and engaging adventure that will succeed in captivating lovers of narrative and emotionally charged experiences, as long as it's seen as "just" an interactive movie whose path cannot be altered, but in which we can alter the emotional nuances and small details. This and the excellent art compartment definitely make it recommendable for those looking for a good story to experience and relax in front of the screen.

Jul 20, 2022

Bright Memory: Infinite is an interesting production primarily thanks to its combat system, which successfully mixes firearms, melee attacks and the use of powers, aided by an undoubtedly powerful visuals, albeit in a linear and static world. The rambling and quickly forgettable story and the extreme brevity of the experience, though, don't make it easily recommendable to everyone.
