Monster Energy Supercross 2 is a good sequel. It greatly enhances the career mode and gives it a lot more dynamism. Driving sensations are also on a good path with better feelings and good technicality, despite an arcade side revealed by some collisions issues. Pretty, fun, and easy to access despite greater depth, Milestone's production has been able to capitalize positively on bases that had good potential. It still has to tweak his multiplayer mode to keep the distance. See you in 2020 for a must-have ?

First thought as rogue-like, Genesis: Alpha One brings a lot of interesting management elements. Thus mixing design, action / FPS and strategy in the way to reach its goal (to find a new planet and to colonize it), it proposes a large number of different directions and a beautiful variety of situations. Beginners in rogue-likes may be a little bit lost because of not-so-clear indications on how to proceed, but if they manage to go beyond frustration and a technical level below average, Genesis': Alpha One might deliver some good experience.

The basics of My Time At Portia are very solid. The opposite would have been surprising regarding the inspirations you have seen in this review. If those have already seduced you in the past, you should not be disappointed. However, do not expect to be surprised, because despite its eminently sympathetic appearance My Time at Portia lacks originality and still suffers collisions issues (minor) and polishing regarding translations.

For the twentieth episode in the series, Project Aces could have gone even further in using the concepts that had made the success of the series. What Ace Combat 7 does, it does it correctly and slightly better than before, but most of the time, the player is a a bit frustrated not to be able to go further. Same idea with the VR mode, that features only 3 little missions when we expected to play the whole game with a PSVR helmet.

This DLC comes at the right time for Two Point Hospital, if you've already played it in all directions and if you have three stars on all your hospitals. You must be aware that it is primarily for those who already likes the title of Two Point Studios. Those will not discover major novelties, but a graphic adaptation that sticks to the winter season with the Bigfoot and thirty specific diseases with their new treatments. The three new hospitals to manage (it's a little light) require an adaptation that is not so different from the basic principles. The developers could have been more daring to change the gamers habits a little bit more. In return, we always find the good taste of English humor. "Bigfoot" will not have enough content to keep us going all winter long. We can already count on the next DLC of spring or summer to take us to the beach.

Ultimate Fishing Simulator is a great way to start virtual fishing on PC. It is one of the most beautiful games of its kind, if not the most beautiful. We regret a perfectible tutorial and sometimes insufficient helps, but the online component always help to find someone to give you a hand. If you throw your line on Steam for a fishing game, feel free to try UFS.

Gear.Club 2 is a positive evolution of the first one, but a minor evolution. Not enough in any case so we can decide to move to this new version without any remorse. In addition, the technical problems encountered with the original game (driving 100% arcade, loading times) remains. Gear.Club 2 is therefore a game to advise because it is the only one in the category of "serious" racing games of the Nintendo Switch.

8 / 10 - Ride 3
Dec 1, 2018

Ride 3 is without a doubt the best episode of the series. It points in a very positive direction for the future of the franchise that could actually stand out as a Gran Turismo for bikes. However, there are still efforts to be made to achieve this, just as a rough diamond must be carefully crafted to truly shine. That said, Ride 3 holds high the flame of motorcycle passion. Enough so that all fans of motorcycling can go for it fearless. Gentlemen, start your engines!

Farming Simulator 2018 (just like its previous edition for that matter) has a base that allows it to be serene for future developments. Unfortunately, these developments are likely to be the result of a very active community, rather than the developer itself to overcome the lack of user-friendliness of its interface and the accompaniment of the player. Very complete on certain things (machines and activities proposed), it is failing on many aspects in its form. However, there is a real pleasure to act as a farmer, who would have been even greater with explanations and a real "story" to follow. Management games have been around for a long time when it comes to developing and managing a city, why not take inspiration from it here too?

5 / 10 - Dakar 18
Oct 2, 2018

Dakar 18 has plenty of good ideas and has managed to capture what makes the interest of a rally raid like the Dakar. Unfortunately his deficient performance in terms of sensations is causing him great harm. This will only be bearable for true motorsport enthusiasts and this particular kind of event. The others will remain stucked on a rigid animation and a technical realization globally below the average.

Fishing Sim World will probably satisfy fishermen who want to indulge in their favorite leisure on consoles or PCs. The presence of reproduced material faithfully, inspired by the real world will provide. but all the others will pass their way in front of the lack of efforts to democratize this sport and to propose it to the greatest number. According to Dovetail, the success of the previous edition (not released on consoles) has been consistent in the US. This one will undoubtedly also remain on the overseas.

9 / 10 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 25, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 brings new ideas and new elements to a base that was already excellent. A base that has also been revealed to be a ground to raise amazing things. Finer on his driving experience and in perfect harmony with the playground he offers, everyone can play FH4. FH4 is as open as his world and it is wainting for you.

The Golf Club 2019 is a very good golf game, which shines in particular by its game system both realistic and rewarding. It does not hustle the codes, but offers an infinite renewal, thanks to its system of procedural generation in addition to the official courses of the PGA Tour. The loading times also benefits from a particular optimization and are non-existent during play, which favors concentration.

Sep 15, 2018

V-Rally 4 has some good ideas and a solid base, but it seems that we are always close to something excellent, before being disappointed by a disruptive element, as it will probably remain limited to racing enthusiasts...

Two Point Hospital manages to successfully update its ancestor and brings a real wind of freshness in the ocean of action titles that sweep across our different platforms. Full of humor, with intelligent mechanisms and a practical interface of management, and also didactic, with a smooth progression, it has everything that is needed to attract gamers. That's why we forgive it more easily some concerns about backups, hoping that it will benefit from updates and even more scenarios.

8 / 10 - F1 2018
Aug 29, 2018

Polished on many aspects that were defects, this F1 2018 is an excellent vintage to justify its purchase even for those who own the previous version. The new regulations are also numerous and it is essential to follow the movement to stick to reality. With its driving combining both sensations and racing strategy, F1 2018 brings an unusual depth in car games. Fans of formula one, go for it. For others, you will learn a lot about discipline if you decide to give it a try.

Train Sim World is an average game on PC and bad one on consoles. It has the great advantage of occupying a "niche" genre that is free of competition. Its qualities could satisfy the amateurs of railway simulation, but all the others remain at the station. It's a shame, because by modifying some elements of form and scenario it could have made the exercise attractive for a wider audience. Maybe future updates will improve it ? Unfortunately Dovetail's habit is rather to offer many expensive DLCs. We hope this will change ...

I Hate Running Backwards is a correct proposition that stays true to the sources of video games : everything is based on gameplay with simple but proven principles. The result is a game without pretension, but that will occupy you for hours with friends or solo. Too bad it has not been polished a little more with other game modes, including classics online modes (in coop for instance).

8 / 10 - Wreckfest
Jul 6, 2018

Wreckfest is out of its early access, but there is still work to do, especially to give it a real "soul" in solo mode. It is far above all the competition in rendering physical damage on cars. On PC, he avails of the work of a very active community. Thanks to this, it offers hours of discoveries and online racing. Bugbear will probably work hard to deliver much stuff on the PC version and then an interesting console release by the end of the year.

Sushi Striker suffers only one major concern on Nintendo Switch; it is not suitable for gaming in the living room and on a big screen. Designed to be tactile, the best way to play it will be in nomadic mode. This problem aside, we are in front of a good puzzle game that has been carefully developed by Indieszero. A great way to kill time.
