8.3 / 10.0 - SUPERHOT
Aug 24, 2019

SUPERHOT is the most innovative shooter of recent years, even on the Switch.

Remnant: From the Ashes is, in all honesty, a breath of fresh air. A solid and alluring co-op action RPG with a good lot of innovations. Don't call it a "souls-like with guns", it's much more than that.

7.5 / 10.0 - Oninaki
Aug 23, 2019

Oninaki is strange. At first you think you love him, then the feeling changes and in the end you almost can't stand it anymore. The truth is in the middle: it is a good game with some interesting mechanics and others much less well chosen.

7.5 / 10.0 - Rad
Aug 19, 2019

A nice roguelike by Double Fine Productions, even if it's a bit shallow.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ion Fury
Aug 14, 2019

Ion Fury is a love letter to 90s shooters, especially addressed to Duke Nukem 3D. A well written love letter, although it could have been more varied in some parts.

8 / 10.0 - Defector
Aug 7, 2019

Are you ready to play the role of a badass secret agent? Despite some undeniable flaws, Twisted Pixel's game let you do it with style. Poor interactivity with the environment and mini-games can awaken abruptly the player from the feeling of "presence", but the variety of action and a fair degree of replayability make Defector a remarkable example of a virtual reality mix, balanced between adventure and action.

7.7 / 10.0 - Metal Wolf Chaos XD
Aug 6, 2019

It's easy to understand and justify the state of worship that Metal Wolf Chaos XD has managed to unintentionally create during the last fifteen years: an insane setting, a pungent satire aimed at the American society and a good technical realization, all at the service of an enjoyable third-person shooter. However, the latter ingredient didn't age very well: Metal Wolf Chaos XD is quite easy, somewhat spartan, and the weapons fail to convey the right feedback.

7.3 / 10.0 - KILL la KILL - IF
Aug 6, 2019

Kill la Kill: IF has a lot of potential, unfortunately the contents are lacking, despite a visually stunning combat system.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a great 4X, but it lacks in accessibility.

Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot has a lot of potential and a lot of very good ideas, but it's a very short experience and doesn't have any replay value.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses succeeds in bringing a breath of fresh air into a saga that is perhaps too anchored to its own style, it does so by renewing the experience without losing sight of the deep strategic soul that has always been the trademark of Intelligent Systems' works. The pace of the game may seem a bit diluted to the most fundamentalist fans, but the overall result is, in our opinion, absolutely convincing and worthy.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood could be wrongly categorized as a "more of the same", but the many new features make it an indispensable title for fans of the series, even if these new mechanics aren't always without flaws.

7.9 / 10.0 - Night Call
Jul 20, 2019

Night Call is thriller on the importance of verbal confrontation, adapting to one's interlocutor, creating fluid dialogues without necessarily complying with all their thoughts. A visual novel that is so classic, even predictable in its police nuance, but brilliant in the micro-situations we will experience in every journey.

The general idea behind Redeemer is solid, however its realization could have been better. Too bad for some the sparse technical issues.

There is a lot of fan service in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Dark Order and that's a smart move from Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja. The game is tailored around the expectations of Marvel's fans, with tons of characters and references to both movies and comics. Sure, cameras are bad and graphic is not so good, but superheroes lovers, the only target of the game, will not care about that too much.

8.2 / 10.0 - Blazing Chrome
Jul 13, 2019

Blazing Chrome is the coin op you didn't play in the arcade, the cartridge that never came out for Neo Geo, the game you didn't know you missed so much. A game with spasmodic, sadistic and punitive action, just as we liked in the 90s.

7.7 / 10.0 - Earth Defense Force 5
Jul 12, 2019

Earth Defense Force 5 is yet another iteration of a series that embraces the repetitiveness of the action to make it its own main strength, thanks to an enviable amount of unlockable content and an immediate gameplay formula capable of entertaining for tens, if not hundreds of hours.
