TOP MARCH
NEW RELEASES

Pit People
Platforms: XOne, PC By The Behemoth



Rating (8.5) A chaotic festival of death and destruction. There is no better way to describe Pit People, an incredibly funny video game that surprises with its crazy sense of humor and its exciting turn-based combats. With a great design of missions and extensive customization options so that we can create the most absurd army there has been and to be, the new creators of Castle Crashers is a work that you can not miss, whether or not you are fans of strategy games by turns.

Chuchel
Platforms: PC By Amanita Design



Rating (8.0) The Amanita Design team does not fail. The new graphic adventure of the creators of Machinarium and Botanicula is another one of those video games with a special charm that is worth trying. His great sense of humor, the ingenious design of some of his puzzles and, of course, his beautiful artistic section make Chuchel a work worthy of praise for his ability to make you feel like a child.

Final Fantasy XV
Platforms: PC By Square Enix



Rating (8.5) Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition is a very good PC conversion that not only focuses on optimizing the product well and providing a good handful of options. It has also taken advantage of the unique technologies of the platform to create the most complete edition to date of its classic saga.

Burnout Paradise: Remastered
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One By Criterion



Rating (7.5) Although it is fair to recognize that in some aspects Burnout Paradise has aged a little, the truth is that its formula of speed and freneticism is still quite current. The Criterion maintains its status as "life insurance" to ensure a session of laughter and fun with the brain in neutral. However, we talk about a remastering and there the remodeling work is not up to the original. There is more resolution, we have all the DLC and we also find some slight increase in the detail of the textures ... Enough? It's up to you.

Warhammer: Vermintide II
Platforms: PC By Fatshark



Rating (8,5) The entry into action of the Army of Chaos helps to make Warhammer: Vermintide II a video game more exciting if possible than the original title. His exciting and spectacular pitched battles are the pure addiction, thanks above all to his ability to surprise again and again with tougher and tougher challenges. The five heroes, with their respective variants and special abilities, also provide an interesting RPG style that feels really good. Whether or not you are fond of the bloody Warhammer universe, you will enjoy this frantic cooperative action game. More if you do it accompanied by three more friends.

QUBE 2
Platforms: PS4, XOne, PC By Toxic Games



Rating (8.0) Although it keeps intact the playable base of the original, QUBE 2 manages to surprise thanks to the ingenious and intelligent design of some puzzles that, while not particularly difficult, do stand out for their ability to offer increasingly elaborate challenges and spectacular With a great staging and an attractive plot background, if you like puzzles to video games, you should not lose sight of the new work of Toxic Games.

Kirby: Star Allies
Platforms: Switch By HAL Laboratory



Rating (7.5) Kirby Star Allies adds one more adventure of the pink ball to his long career, but ... does he justify his presence? Maybe it does not contribute much, and it is conservative in its proposal, becoming a somewhat flat video game, with no challenges for the lonely user. However, it is a recommendable experience if you play in the company, thanks to a cooperative that gives for a few afternoons of enjoyment, more if you like the character of Kirby and all that it represents.

Sea of Thieves
Platforms: PC, XOne By Rare



Rating (7.0) The thrill of living great adventures is the engine that drives the action of Sea of Thieves, a video game with great potential that however, right now, does not end up exploding as it should. Rare's video game is one of those works with which it is easy to have fun; the follies that you can do in the company of other players make anybody's day and, at the helm of the ship, the feeling of freedom is extraordinary. Right now it is a good video game that sins of lack of content and a simple combat system in excess but, with time, with the additions that will arrive free of charge during the next years, Sea of Thieves can become a must. I hope it is soon!

AOT 2
Platforms: PC, PS4, XOne, Switch By Omega Force



Rating (8.0) Omega Force has created a second very remarkable installment of Attack on Titan, an adventure that shows a development that is totally different from the specialty of that studio, the musou, to host a very diverse gameplay, although quite focused on the action. A title that far from wasting the license on which it is based, offers a good combination of possibilities both to enjoy alone and in the company. A fairly complete and well-done game.

Ghost of a Tale
Platforms: PC By SeithCG



Rating (8.5) Ghost Of A Tale is a special game. A very personal work with an incredible level and artistic design that immerses you perfectly in the world you propose. He has some technical faults and could be more round in the final stages, but his proposal is so original and well taken that it leaves amazed any player who approaches him knowing what he is looking for. A game full of magic and charm, that flees like its own mouse protagonist of the fast action, to expressly and deeply focus on exploration.

Surviving Mars
Platforms: PS4 By Fast Travel Games



Rating (8.0) Surviving Mars offers exactly what it promised. An experience that is more like a long learning process where we will suffer some displeasure due to our lack of foresight but, in general, it is a pleasant and pleasant experience. There is work to be done in the game of Haemimont Games, for many hours, and sometimes neither the catastrophes nor some inconveniences of the interface will help us, but nobody said that it would be simple, right?

Ni no Kuni 2
Platforms: PC, PS4 By: Leve-5



Rating (8.5) Ni no Kuni 2 is a great work of Level 5, not content to make a worthy sequel to the first video game, has taken the opportunity to add a lot of different extra activities that enrich the experience. There are chiaroscuro in the development of characters and their main story and could have gone deeper into their battle system, but even these points also have their strengths, which is accompanied by an artistic design of the most beautiful we have seen so far. A different JRPG with personality.

A Way Out
Platforms: PC, XOne, PS4 By Hazelight



Rating (8.0) A Way Out is a joy for those looking for something different in the world of video games, especially for those looking for an experience that can only be enjoyed cooperatively and that brings out the best in the game. The creator of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons returns to surprise us with another very personal story in which what really matters is that, what we are told. Along the way, there is a gameplay not too deep, but very varied and perfectly capable of maintaining our interest during the six hours that will take us to overcome it.

Far Cry 5
Platforms: PC, XOne, PS4 By Ubisoft Montreal



Rating (9.0) Far Cry 5 is a very good example of what the shooter saga wants to achieve and, surely, also of where it wants to go. The new video game of the series becomes strong in all the elements that characterize the brand and, although it does not risk too much in its ideas, it achieves a very good result. Many hours of entertainment, lots of fun and, above all, the most spectacular and explosive action you can find right now.
