Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series Icon
Great game as always
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Apr 26th 2015

As always, a Telltale game is a big success. The settings is amazing, as every fan of this saga should know. The gameplay is based on other well known games by the same developer: if you liked them, you'll like this one, too.
The story will be one episode longer than usual and the price is a little bit higher as well: I believe that this is fair and you can always save some money buying on sales period.

LIMBO Icon
Creepy, difficult game!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Jan 9th 2015

In limbo the player is a little kid, who has to solve e big number of puzzles in order to reach the end. The game is quite creepy: we will face various enemies, like a giant spider or a group of killing people. The riddles are quite difficult, but not impossible. Overall the game is not bad, but I don't think that this is a masterpiece like most people think.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 1 Icon
A new story with Elizabeth
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Jan 9th 2015

This is the game for those who, like me, loved the first two Bioshocks and Infinite. We are Booker again, always with Elizabeth by our side, but this time the setting is Rapture. We can explore one more time the submarine city. The game is pretty good, with a good gameplay and a very beautiful graphics. If you like this franchise you must play this DLC.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 2 Icon
Elizabeth, you pretty lady!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Jan 9th 2015

In this second DLC of Bioshock Infinite, the main character is Elizabeth. We are now the girl that was Booker's companion. A very interesting new point of view. The story si quite good, the gameplay is very similar, if not exactly the same, to the other DLC. A good conclusion for his franchise: everybody who loved it should play this game.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 Icon
Emotional as always
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Jan 9th 2015

As always the games from Telltale are very emotional. We follow Clementine in her new adventures, with a new group of companions. The life of this little lady is going to be everything but easy. She will face hard times, and in the end she will be stronger. The gameplay is exactly the same of the previous game, while the graphics is better.

Omerta: City of Gangsters Icon
Very funny game!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Apr 1st 2014

If you like the prohibitionism period, this is the game for you; if you like strategic combat games, this is the game for you; if you like simulation games like SimCity, this is the game fot you. This game has everything of the above, plus is very funny to play as the boss in different scenarios.

Gone Home Icon
Amazing exploration game!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Mar 16th 2014

Gone Home is a fantastic game! You have to explore your parents' house after coming back from a trip in Europe. Noone is there waiting for you, and you have to find out what happened: you find yourself exploring the house, but most importantly the feelings of your family. At the beginnig the game is a little slow, but after while you, the player, become emotionally involved with the story: at that point you can't stop playing. All you want is find out more about what happened to your sister and her friend, to your mom and dad, and to your ghost uncle! I highly reccomend this game!

Redshirt Icon
Not so funny as I thought
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Dec 17th 2013

I looked forward to play this game cause I heard everybody saying how much fun It is. But actually it wasn't so much fun for me. I mean the game is pretty well designed, but I think that after a while it's boring to do the same stuff over and over again. Now and then I enjoyed playing it, but overall I don't think It's a great game, sorry.

The Wolf Among Us Icon
Only first chapter, but looking awesome!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Dec 12th 2013

As written in the title, I've played only the first chapter at the moment I write this review. Though the game looks already pretty awesome. I fell in love with TTG playing TWD S1, and this one is simply a confirmation that they are very good. The game is very similar to TWD: the gameplay mechanic are basically the same (you have more choices sometimes when pushing "buttons"), the graphics is again comic-like (and that's a good diversity form the crowd IMHO) but look smoother and cleaner, with bright colors and good lights. The story so far is good, I think it still needs to start rocking, but good.

The Walking Dead Icon
Amazing Game!!!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Dec 9th 2013

This game is simply amazing. Graphics are unique, comics-style, and pretty well designed! The best part, though, is the story: you have to take difficult choices episode after episode. Choices that will deeply involve your feelings, your morality. The plot changes according to those decisions (who you decide to save/let die for example). So, at the top, you can play this game several times, and always have a difference plot. It's not just a case that it was 2012 GOTY!!

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Icon
Good expansion
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Dec 9th 2013

TWD: 400 Days it's the DLC to TWD season 1. It's only one episode divided in 5 "mini-episodes". In each of them you will play as one different character. As in the main game each choice you take will deeply change plot: at the end, according to your choices, you find the characters together in different situations. Gameplay is the same as the main game. Considering price, I'd suggest you all to try this out (if you appreciated the season). Your decisions in this DLC will influence season 2, too.

BioShock Infinite Icon
Best of The Series!!!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Nov 17th 2013

This game is probably the best one of the entire Bioshock series!!! We switch from the dark and ocean-deep Rapture to the shiny flying Columbia. But if you think life here is happier, you're very wrong. Plasmids are replaced by Tonics, two political factions are fighting a deathmatch, and a giant robotic bird called Songbird is protecting the "Lamb of the Prophet" in Columbia Tower. Pretty disturbing, isn't it? The story is amazing: be prepared for a shocking finale! The only issue with the game IMHO is the gameplay: not in itself, it's always enough funny, but it's the same once again (if you've played another Bioshock game before you won't find anything new here). But all in all, as I said, the gameplay is good, graphics is amazing, and the…oh my, the story….don't let me tell you about it, you have to find for yourself!!! Buy this game, especially now that's only 11.99!!!

The Promised Land Icon
Amazing graphics and effects, beautiful story and gameplay!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Nov 16th 2013

This game is amazing, that's the only word I can use to describe it. I mena it's nothing like GTA, TES, Fallout or big hits like those, but it's well designed, the story, IMHO, is really beautiful (not TLOU beautiful, but still very very good). The best part, for me, it's the graphic effects: they're very simple, but at the same time they're stunning. The gameplay is rich: you have to think carefully which task you give to your citizens according to their favourites, what your colony needs in that moment, and what it's best selling to your capital. Considering the price, I suggest all of you to buy this game (or at least try the DEMO, it'll convince you to purchase)!!!

SimCity Icon
Good game, not perfect!
by Nicola Manocchio, Italy - Nov 13th 2013

The game is very good. It has an amazing graphics ad effects, they're perhaps the best part of the game itself. The gameplay it's really funny, although there are some problems that needs to be resolved (traffic for example). But overall the game is really good, it entertains you. Well, maybe the internet connection requirement it's a big handicap in my opinion.
