Orwell's Animal Farm is a pleasant mix of Visual Novel and management experience, with some lovely visuals, music and a very good narrator. The fact that it allows you to retell the story is interesting. But as it still offers a good way to know what the book has to say, it can feel redundant, and a bit foggy in its intentions and mechanics.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a new masterpiece from CD Projekt RED, a huge, dense, vibrant, colorfoul and dark Sci-Fi RPG that any fan of the genre should step in. First because it will provide the sensation that the story really depends on you choices and that you have everything you need for your playstyle. Then because streets, stores, buildings, inhabitants of Night City won't get out of your head easily. You'll be happy to interact with Keanu Reeves, but the real star is this city and all it provides in terms of atmosphere, game mechanics and stories. [OpenCritic note: Gianni Molinaro separately reviewed the next-gen (10) and current-gen (4) versions. The scores have been averaged.]

6 / 10 - Picross S5
Nov 30, 2020

As expected, Picross S5 is just a new batch of brand new puzzles (a total of 485). There is nothing really new, except a feature to see how much time you spent to complete each mode, but fans of this puzzle franchise won't care, they just need more grids. And they'll have them.

Observer System Redux is an absolute must-have, whether you played the original game or not. If you're keen on Cyberpunk and horror, you'll find here exactly what you want : a beautiful game, with a stunning universe and fantastic dialogues and storytelling. Improvements are more than welcome and offer a more attractive and intense experience. The best game Bloober Team has delivered. It clearly doesn't deserve to be lost in time like tears in rain.

8 / 10 - The Pathless
Nov 20, 2020

Somewhere between Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Shadow of the Colossus and Journey, The Pathless is a beautiful and very pleasant experience, that feels very clever, smooth and relaxing. If you feel the need to travel somewhere else in this complicated time, just give a chance to this game.

7 / 10 - Bugsnax
Nov 16, 2020

Bugsnax could have been a silly and divisive game from Octodad's creators. But in the end, underneath its weirdness, it is a tasty experience of hunting, collecting and puzzles with some great writing ans characters, that can entertain everyone for a few hours.

3 / 10 - XIII
Nov 12, 2020

As it feels older than the original, except for its visuals, and is full of bugs and glitches, this new version of XIII will not be fondly remembered.

Bluecoats : North & South tries really hard to resurrect one of the best games of the 80s'. But poor execution and failed attempts to make it modern cut it from nostalgic players, and those who might be looking for a fun mix of strategy and action in the Bluecoats universe.

Astro's Playroom is a truly adorable and joyful platformer. Even if a bit short and not very difficult, it shows the potential of the DualSense as we go through some lovely levels with some funny ideas and a lot to remember about the whole PlayStation brand. Definitely worth your time.

9 / 10 - Hades
Sep 21, 2020

Hades is a fantastic Rogue-lite that offers some terrific action, strond design, beautiful narrative, unforgettable characters and, needless to say, tremendous visuals and soundtrack. Even players who are or became allergic to its genre should try it, as it has probably no Achille's Heel and is, for sure, the most accomplished Supergiant Games experience to date.
