Landing for the first time on a Nintendo hardware, these two episodes, especially the first one, are instant classics of the JRPG genre. This Switch version of the HD Remaster is quite clean, technically speaking, with high resolution textures and low loading time. Alas, the cartridge only includes Final Fantasy X (X-2 being available by downloading it), but it's not a reason to pass by these fantastic games.

Hob reveals to be a satisfying experience. The level design is diverse and conveys a real appetite for exploration and puzzles. Alas, the fight mechanics aren't so engaging and the handheld mode is filled with technical issues.

4 / 10 - The Occupation
Mar 6, 2019

The Occupation doesn't live up to its promises. After one hour of investigation, the player won't even try to understand what's going on anymore, as the narration feels way too elusive. Not to mention all the technical issues (framerate drops, glitches) and the bland art direction. It's a shame, given the interesting themes mentioned in the game.

A true tribute to the fans of the saga, this episode traces the end of Sora's journey through the exploration of new worlds, more beautiful and vast than in the past, with a strong respect for the Disney worlds from which it is inspired. In short, Kingdom Hearts III is an imperfect work but overflowing with heart.

Back in 2001, when Onimusha Warlords first came out, it was a real step forward in the beat'em all genre. Eighteen years later, despite its laughable lenght, the joy of discovery remains the same, especially when it comes to its stunning art direction and the simpleness of its gameplay mechanics. Now, we can only hope for further adaptations of the Onimusha saga.

Although not lacking in some weaknesses, principally due to sluggish editing and acting, Checkmate is a decent conclusion to the journey of Louis de Richet on the ominous island of Lord Mortimer. More fast-paced than the previous episodes, these last chapters are also more fascinating since the demonic realm is involved.

Among all the episodes released so far, Burning Bridges is the most engaging of all. The plot takes giant steps forward and lift the veil on the mysteries surronding Lord Mortimer. Alas, the technical issues are still there and the scenography lacks rhythm. Let's hope that the last episode will fix this.

The new installment from the polish studio Artifex Mundi is a real treat for the eye. But despite its appealing visuals, My Brother Rabbit fails to deliver a thrilling experience over time. It does not really matter actually as the game can be enjoyed in a few amount of time (three or four hours).

7 / 10 - State of Mind
Aug 13, 2018

With a thrilling scenario that keeps the player spellbound until the epic ending, State of Mind, however, fails to captivate the player in the gameplay department, at least during the first half of the game. It remains a satisfying experience, with a real reflection on the excesses of a technology-based society.

7 / 10 - Semblance
Jul 25, 2018

Nyamakop has successfully completed the requirements for a good puzzle-platformer : a charming art direction, with part of the world made of playdough, and a creative gameplay experience that allows the player to shape the environnement. A little too short, Semblance is definitely a worthwhile game for the Nintendo Switch.

This third episode of The Council contains a large amount of technical issues, among which the many and tedious loading times, making the exploration less pleasant than it should be. Despite all this, the plot is finally moving on and all the choices made by the player seem to have a real impact on the story as a whole.

10 / 10 - INSIDE
Jul 18, 2018

In 2016, Playdead has delivered a masterpiece of a game to the world. Most accomplished and thrilling than Limbo, Inside can now be enjoyed everywhere on the Nintendo Switch. Basically, it's the same game, which is certainly not a fault. We're now anticipating what will come next from the brilliant minds of the danish studio.

Those familiar with the LEGO franchise won't be disoriented. LEGO The Incredibles is a fun game to explore and controlling the Pixar characters each with their own abilities can be really enjoyable. Alas, the game is not very challenging, especially when it comes to fight several minions by simply press the same button, and the main adventure is quite short.

8 / 10 - Unravel Two
Jun 27, 2018

Unravel Two appears to be a real treat for your eyes and ears, as well as its predecessor. The possibility to control two Yarnys, alone or with a friend, is a real addition to this poetic journey. The seven levels of the main story can be completed really fast but the extra missions extend the experience for the players seeking for some challenge.

4 / 10 - Agony
Jun 2, 2018

Bellow its subversive appearance, Agony is just a mediocre title. It fails to capture the very essence of a successful survival horror game : an experience that combine a terrifying setting and interesting gameplay mechanics.

Despite its intriguing plot and characters, Hide and Seek sadly suffers from a lack of pace. The repetitive dialogues fail to arouse the interest of the player, who'd also be annoyed by the recurrent loading times.

3 / 10 - Castle of Heart
Apr 3, 2018

In addition to its insignificant art direction, Castle of Heart can be really frustrating. Indeed, you spend most of your time making your way by fleeing from tenacious enemies and lethal projectiles. Actually, this game is not worth your time. Run, you fools !

This first episode takes its time to introduce the plot of the Council as well as the RPG mechanics. They suit very well to the narrative genre, allowing the player to follow its own path through the choices of the game.

Aesthetically captivating, The Residence fails to deliver a convincing gameplay experience. In the end, the three chapters of Secret of the Maw are not up to the original game.

Highly acclaimed when it came out in early 2011, Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology is definitely one of a kind. Its full-narrative structure, the well-developped background, the intuitive combat system and the welcome additions of this 3DS version make it a game every JRPG fan should own.
