King Arthur: Knight's Tale is no game to be taken lightly: it requires dedication, concentration, and a desire to understand and exploit the numerous mechanics it offers us. In return, however, it guarantees us the memorable experience of a mythological Middle Ages in which we can spend a huge number of hours, testing our tactical skills and our temper as kings. A title that should not be missing from the library of fans of the genre.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is a huge title and a breath of fresh air for the series, with gameplay that manages to find the right middle ground between action and turn-based strategy and a new setting full of things to do. A highly recommended title for fans of the series.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden effectively blends all the most characteristic gameplay elements of the action-RPG genre, combining them with a high-quality narrative plot. The result is a traditional and solid title, capable of entertaining the player thanks to a well-balanced combat system, an always interesting exploration component, and a unique and meaningful narrative. A game that all lovers of the genre and good stories should add to their collection.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League brings on our screens a new compelling Arkhamverse story coupled with an entertaining gameplay loop. However, it fails to keep our interest high past the first hours, due to the lack of a deeper structure and a more varied gameplay. Overall, this results in a disappointing experience, especially for a game with live service ambitions. Our hopes for improvement are pinned on future content updates and solid post-launch support.

9 / 10.0 - Tekken 8
Jan 23, 2024

Tekken 8 greatly improves its proven formula: the Heat system manages to make every fight faster and adrenalinic rewarding a more aggressive style, while studying every move and training become essential parts of the experience. Bandai Namco's new game affirms itself as the new king of 3D fighters, thanks to the solid and deep gameplay that made this series unique and timeless.

Ubisoft kicks off the year with a brilliant metroidvania, not only successfully refreshing a historical franchise, but also effectively introducing new elements to the genre, while providing challenging, varied and satisfying fights, and very thoughtful environmental puzzles. Definitely suggested to every lover of the genre.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora features a lush and visually stunning world with very satisfying tactical combat; unfortunately, the anonymous and forgettable story is unconvincing, while the gameplay is undermined by a problematic mission design that can often make our experience frustrating.

CyberConnect2's new game feels like a missed opportunity, with a lazily built Naruto story mode and identical gameplay to the past games. Boruto's story mode and the huge roster of characters help it to partly recover, but it's too little, especially for a game that is supposed to celebrate 20 years of Naruto history.

UFO Robot Grendizer: The Feast of the Wolves is a partly successful nostalgia operation: it succeeds in giving strong emotions to those who lived through the golden age of Japanese robot cartoons, but unfortunately has major technical flaws, with delays in the control system and graphical slowdowns.

The Talos Principle II has emerged as one of the best puzzle adventures ever. A unique and fascinating experience that will keep you glued to the screen for dozens of hours while making you reflect on deep philosophical and existential themes. To be played without hesitation.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III is overall a good game, with the best gameplay over the last 3 chapters thanks to a fluid and frenetic multiplayer and a good Zombie mode. A discordant note is an uninvolving and slightly shorter campaign, but it remains the CoD with the best multiplayer in recent years, and this simply cannot be ignored.

8 / 10.0 - EA Sports WRC
Nov 10, 2023

EA Sports WRC offers engaging gameplay that manages to bring all the thrills of the rally world to the screen, with an in-depth Career and many other satisfying modes. Despite some technical limitations, it is recommended to Rally and Racing Games fans as a promising new start for the franchise.

8.5 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 5
Nov 7, 2023

A really good simulator, with several improvements in both graphics and gameplay. The technical section is excellent, with maniacal attention to detail, while the gameplay is fluid and the combat system quite solid. The content offering is also top notch, especially the new online career. It will certainly satisfy lovers of mixed martial arts.

8 / 10.0 - Sonic Superstars
Nov 5, 2023

Sonic Superstars represents a new return to Sonic's roots, with plenty of frenzy and speed, attractive graphics, adequate sound and of course the 2D feel that has accompanied the blue hedgehog so much throughout his career. Two jarring notes: the overly confused co-op and a longevity that is not top-notch for a game sold at full price.

9.2 / 10.0 - Alan Wake 2
Nov 5, 2023

Alan Wake 2 is Remedy Entertainment's true masterpiece. A survival horror that manages to sensationally blend the pivotal elements of the genre, with gameplay balanced between two protagonists and with non-linear storytelling that on more than one occasion breaks through the barriers of the video game medium to create something broader, and that succeeds in capturing the player also thanks to a technical and artistic realisation of the highest level. A video game that everyone, fans of the genre or not, should consider playing.

8 / 10.0 - Jusant
Oct 31, 2023

Jusant is a gem to see and play; coherent, delicate, thoughtful. The splendid art direction, coupled with a fascinating and magnetic world building, clashes with a limited gameplay layering and a short overall length, but if you love narrative adventures and poetic and inspired game worlds, you will definitely want to play it.

8.5 / 10.0 - EA Sports FC 24
Oct 30, 2023

Despite the drastic name change, EA Sports FC 24 doesn't represent a revolution but rather a new step forward in EA Sports' football series, with many new features and some unexpected optimisation issues. But despite the lack of courage in offering a truly innovative experience, it still remains the best choice for all soccer game fans.

Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged follows the footsteps of the first episode, expanding the formula and offering a full-bodied package, packed with content, cars, and plenty of arcade-style fun. The absence of more acrobatic tracks in true Hot Wheels style is noticeable, but it is still a very entertaining arcade racer.

8.3 / 10.0 - Ghostrunner 2
Oct 23, 2023

Ghostrunner 2 takes a big step forward compared to the first game, in all respects: quality, variety, longevity, and game design. A title that is finally mature and capable of entertaining from start to finish, with tough but well-balanced challenges in which the player feels closer to success with each new attempt. Too bad for a somewhat foggy story and some inaccuracies in the controls, but if you want a challenging game that tests your reflexes, it definitely deserves your attention.

Bud Spencer & Terence Hill: Slaps And Beans 2 is a solid, fun and rewarding title as well as a true love letter to the two cult actors. If you're looking for a side-scrolling fighting game that will entertain you with pleasure, this one might just have all the credentials to win you over.
