Asterix and Obelix Slap'em All is a charming beat'em all which still lacks of depth too keep the enjoyment on the long run. Despite its gorgeous look and animation, the repetitiveness of the 50 levels and simple gameplay aim for a young audience more than the average street fighter.

Marsupilami: Hoobadventure feels like a child-oriented Donkey Kong Country-like. Way more accessible and easier than the original formula, it will give to the youngest players a glimpse of what is to come, with its many secrets and evolutive yet conformist level design.

With The Smurfs - Mission Vileaf, Osome Studio offers a kind of huge tutorial to 3D platformers: folded in the space of just a few hours, the adventure is only for beginner players in full development of their fine motor skills. With beacons every two meters and invisible walls in abundance, this initiatory course with a very nice tone remains much too wise to satisfy other profiles.

Riders Republic tries to improve the Steep formula on many levels, but sometimes fails to really find its own way : by constantly solliciting the players with its trials, rewards, gears, modes and extras, Ubisoft Annecy's new formula sometimes forgets to let us enjoy the ride and its vast landscape.

A Little Golf Journey cleverly mixes 3D platformer mecanics with a standard golf approach to deliver a relaxing yet challenging adventure, with many secrets to find. If only the camera was not so twisted.

9 / 10 - Metroid Dread
Oct 6, 2021

With Metroid Dread, Mercury Steam brings the series back to its roots by delivering a strong, dense and cleverly designed 2D episode, Thanks to its though but balanced curve, Samus keeps getting stronger and more able to decipher many puzzles and fight interesting bosses, only to appear vulnerable when escaping the new EMMI robots. The adventure sure is classic, but all the elements are here pushed to their limits, for the better. What a ride.

6 / 10 - Sable
Sep 22, 2021

If Sable manages without difficulty to suck us into his universe quick to explore and meet thanks to a striking artistic direction and a soaring soundtrack of very high flight, the technical part beats so much of the wing that the caravan sometimes stalls to cross a simple bute. Quick to the most surprising collision bugs, Sable nevertheless offers a dreamlike and sensory adventure that invites you to take your time, to better let yourself be lulled by its charming but sometimes frustrating universe.

8 / 10 - Deathloop
Sep 13, 2021

Deathloop is a unique mix between FPS, sci-fi and mystery in a 70's case. Trapped in a time loop, Colt Vahn must understand and memorize every nook and cranny of a strange island and it's strange cast of vilains. Despite some kind of redundancy in its last hours, Deathloop is an intelligent, beautiful, singular and well-written adventure not to miss.

7 / 10 - TOEM
Sep 13, 2021

In these troubled times, this is an experience that should do good to all players anxious to trade for a moment the very real turpitudes of our world for the good words and surprises of an adventure that seems to have understood what feel-good really means.

9 / 10 - 12 Minutes
Aug 18, 2021

12 Minutes is a brilliant, complex, dense and very smart point and click adventure, which amazes each time you play it, thanks to its many, many branches. Served by a talented and rightfully toned cast, 12 Minutes is a rare and outstanding experience all the way.

6 / 10 - Road 96
Aug 17, 2021

Road 96 offers a non-Manichean adventure on the roads, looking for a brighter future on the other side of the border. Despite some uneven mini-games and some brutal cuts in its narration, the game still offers some interesting cast and landscapes, carried by a strong soundtrack with delightful 90's vibes.

With The Siege of Paris, Assassin's Creed Valhalla goes back to the serie's roots by allowing players to find the best way to get rid of their victims. With a very french intrigue and setting, this episode offers a pretty good reason to launch the game once again, sacrebleu !

4 / 10 - Witchcrafty
Jul 27, 2021

Witchcrafty is one of the very last games of the PS Vita. The game is shipped unfinished, with tons of collisions, IA and damage bugs which change at every run. To enjoy this visually charming sorcery adventure, you will have to cope with the dark forces of randomness working against you.

8 / 10 - Death's Door
Jul 23, 2021

Death's Door is a nervous action game that transcends Acid Nerve's old formula. Thanks to a clever difficulty, fights with brandnew situations, a rewarding exploration and a beautiful soundtrack, Death's Door is the perfect well-balanced experience of this summer, despite a very light pathfinding.

The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD is a constant fight between good and evil : if the game now makes the most of the 60 fps/HD display and a mostly muted Fi, the classic controls are not easily transposables to a simple controller, and most of the already-outdated game design flaws of the 2011 game are still there.

This HD Remaster of Legend of Mana is a strange experience, somewhere in-between : with beautiful and wide landscapes, and a brilliant musical score, the game also offers some old and sometime repulsive gameplay mechanics, especially for newcomers. Legend of Mana is still a good '90s game, but it clearly needed more reflexion to match today's standards.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is as expected a strong next-gen upgarde on an already great game. Its 60fps animation and extra chapter makes it all the more delighful. Too bad you had to wait for it to see the true ending. Not fair, Square Enix

Thanks to its gorgeous visuals and deeper narrative, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart arises the series to a new level. With many locations to enjoy, a lot of weapons to try out and many, many collectibles to find, everyone should find a good reason to embark on this bidimensional journey, even though the obvious collision bugs are still way too present.

7 / 10 - Sludge Life
Jun 2, 2021

Sludge Life is a strange but kind of hypnotic experience, between graffitis and social strikes, using its free exploration to deliver an in-between subtext. If the low-poly visual approach do not repulse you, this like-no-other ride sure offers a few hours of raw discoveries and disturbing encounters.

Despite the prospect of discovering the green lands of Ireland, it's hard to get excited after a dozen hours spent on The Wrath of the Druids: this first expansion of Assassin's Creed Valhalla is content despite a handful of novelties to recycle the formula of the main adventure, which may quickly tire those who have already completed it. While waiting for the Siege of Paris, which we hope will be much more inspired, we will advise the conquerors to go quietly to their business, waiting for better, less misty days.
