5 / 10 - JUMP FORCE
Feb 14, 2019

There's no ease way to put it: Jump Force is a massive disappointment. The game should be an epic celebration of 50 years of legendary characters and stories. What we're left with is a dated game that looks like a cheap cash grab. Goku, Naruto, Luffy and friends deserve so much better.

8 / 10 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 22, 2019

Recreating Resident Evil 2 20 years later was no easy task but Capcom pulled it off. Resident Evil 2 was handled with love and care and it shows. 2019's Resident Evil 2 is a wonderful Survival Horror that is both terrifying and fun to play. Fans old and new will have a great time with the game. Our only, and minor, complaint is that we wish the remake added more new story content to the original storyline. But other than that, Capcom did the original game justice.

7 / 10 - Fitness Boxing
Dec 20, 2018

Playing Fitness Boxing won't earn you a title match at Caesar's Palace nor will it give you hours of fun with your friends. But it will help you get in shape/stay fit and that's what it was made for. Fitness Boxing is a good fitness app which could have been even better with more precise motion controls.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 improves on a quite a few aspects of the original game like game modes and gameplay mechanics. But its microtransaction model leaves a sour taste in the player's mouth. Unlocking great players takes a very long time and the game wants to get you to buy in-game credits. But if you're patient, or spending more money isn't a problem for you, you can have a lot of fun with NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.

Fire Pro Wrestling World offers a truly great alternative to the WWE 2K games. With its deep gameplay mechanics, its Visual Novel-like story mode and the addition of the New Japan Pro Wrestling roster, Spike Chunsoft's wrestling game is a must play for hardcore wrestling fans.

8 / 10 - WWE 2K19
Oct 12, 2018

Even though WWE 2K19 doesn't offer the graphical overhaul the franchise so desperatly deserves, it takes quite a few steps in the right direction. Its new modes are fun, the Showcase mode makes a triumphant return and its new features are well thought out. WWE 2K19 clearly gives WWE fans something to have a good time with.

428 : Shibuya Scramble is clearly a game worthy of its Japanese reputation. Spike Chunsoft's Visual Novel tells a riveting story and makes a really clever use of its multiple bad endings system. The game gives you a tour of the real Shibuya and introduces you to a cast of characters that grows on you very fast. It grows on you so much in fact, that once the game ends, you're sad that you'll never see them again.

Hokuto Ga Gotoku is clearly one of the best, if not the best, Fist of the North Star video games. Using the Yakuza system was a good idea as it fits with the FOTNS like a glove. It's just too bad that the game runs on Yakuza 0's and not Yakuza 6's engine.

South Park : The Stick of Truth is by far the best South Park game ever made and one of the funniest video games ever. Gamers who enjoy a good laugh owe it to themselves to play this game. And the fact the Switch allows players to take the game everywhere with them make things even better.

It is safe to say that Broken Sword 5 on the Switch is the ultimate version of Charles Cecil's Adventure game. Being able to switch (no pun intended) between handheld and console mode is a great feature for a game such as this one. And the addition of brand new bonus videos is a nice touch for fans of the franchise.

8 / 10 - Yakuza Kiwami 2
Aug 23, 2018

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is clearly the update Yakuza 2 deserved. The very talented people over at Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios recreated the riveting Yakuza 2 plot while adding new side quests and activities. Even if a couple of elements from the original game are now missing, Kiwami 2 has more than enough content to keep players glued to their scree to their screens. It must also be noted that the Dragon Engine looks and runs better than it did in Yakuza 6. All in all, Kiwami 2 another great Yakuza game that fans of the series should not miss.

8 / 10 - Shenmue 1 & 2
Aug 20, 2018

Shenmue I & II gives players the opportunity to experience slightly updated versions of two of the all-time greatest games. Even though we would have loved for Shenmue I and II to get real remakes, both games still have a lot to offer to 2018 gamers. Very few titles can claim to be as immersive as Shenmue I and II and it's great to be able to dive into its universe once more. What could have been if the port hadn't been so lazy.

8 / 10 - Yakuza 0
Jul 26, 2018

Yakuza 0 is one the best Yakuza games and it's a game that PC gamers should not miss. Fun and overflowing with content, Yakuza 0 allows players to discover Tokyo and Osaka's red light districts as they were during Japan's "bubble economy" years. SEGA Europe did a great job on this PC port as the game has never looked so good.

Donkey Kong Adventure is a worthy addition to the Kingdom Battle experience. The DLC's universe is a fun and colorful as the original game's while the new characters and battles add some freshness to the mix. We hope it's not the last we hear from Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Cranky.

"People crowdfunded this crap?" Yes, they did. And seeing the finished product, they probably kick themselves for giving its developers so much money. Time and nostalgia had transformed Shaq Fu, the bad 16-bit game, into a funny joke. And unfortunately, the joke has now gone to far. Shaq Fu : A Legend Reborn is a terrible game that manages to be very short and too long at the same time. If you aren't one of the game's backers, you truly should spend your money elsewhere.

State of Decay 2 is an interesting "post zombie apocalypse life simulator" that forces the player to manage every aspect of a survivor's life. It's too bad that its story isn't very interesting. And what to say about those bugs : there are just so many of them... With better production values, State of Decay could have been a truly special game.

D'tective Pikachu has a cool concept and a truly great title character. That being said, the game is way too easy for most players. But it can make a fun first Adventure game for young kids.

From Dusk Till Casa Bonita gives players the chance to spend a couple more hours with the kids from South Park. As always, the dialogue is funny and the story has a few WTF moments. Our only complaint is that the plot of this new quest could have been a bit more epic.

On the Nintendo Switch, Overkill could have offered the definitive PayDay 2. Some strange design choices and the lack of certain features (no online voice chat) refrain the game from reaching its true potential. And that's too bad as PayDay 2 really could have been a fun game on the Switch. Only people who will get to try the game's local co-op will get a glimpse of what could have been.

If you've played de Blob 2 back in 2011, no need to play this PS4 port. Even if you liked it back then. Almost no changes have been made to the game and none of its weak points have been improved. de Blob 2 is an average platformer at best. Cool soundtrack though.
