4 / 10 - Catan
Jul 8, 2019

If the success of Catan as a board game is more to prove, concerning this adaptation in video games, an absence is an aberration: the lack of a local multiplayer game mode. If, perhaps, the big fans of the board game will find their account between two parties in real life, it seems nevertheless that the designers of this version Switch has missed the main interest of the game.

Stuck between cheap jokes on our contemporary society and more gritty situations than others, the non-adventures of Larry Laffer seem definitely anachronistic. The fact of proposing something schooly, crazy or erotic is not crippling but we find ourselves here with the outcome corny of a series that was definitely thought extinct.

Puyo Puyo Champions, as its name suggests, first addresses the most passionate who will have the audacity and ability to play it online against fierce opponents. However, despite its multiplayer focus, this new Puyo Puyo is still home to the jovial and fun puzzle game it has always been, in its most fun, colorful and cute look on this date.

Saints Row The Third, like many games from the past generation, made its way to the Switch. And it appears unfotunatly technically very old. Nevertheless, Saints Row remains to be fun and a good punching bag.

4 / 10 - Fade to Silence
May 2, 2019

With Fade to Silence, Black Forest Games was undoubtedly willing to offer a title with a unique atmosphere at the crossroads of influences dear to hardcore players, eager for ruthless survival mechanisms and mute narrative. Unfortunately, by trying do to too much, this RPG survival does not convince in any of its aspects, offering a repetitive experience, technically very limited and painful.

5 / 10 - Outward
Apr 24, 2019

Outward is a cleavage game. Dated graphically, technically, austere in many aspects. But despite its many flaws, persevering role players can enjoy this search of sensations of yesteryear.

The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa is quite weak in its pure playful proposal but has a real personality that could well embark you, if you are sensitive to this typical Japanese atmosphere carried by hip hop melodies and retro graphics successful in this small city, free to live the existence often in slow motion of a rascal high school and his friends. In this, again, the fact of being able to play in a nomadic way with the Switch is a plus.

6 / 10 - Weedcraft Inc
Apr 17, 2019

Weedcraft Inc is a convincing management game about the cannabis business. We get into the game through all aspects of this business that are treated here with both lightness and relevance. We regret just an ergonomics that lack of nervousness in the long term, a slow progression and dialogues that lack intensity. That said, everything rolls for this original title, amateur of the genre or not.

2 / 10 - Left Alive
Mar 7, 2019

In a few days, once the papers are about to finish it, Left Alive will return to anonymity from the beginning, carrying with it the secret of its existence. Thanks to him, we remembered the charisma of PlayStation's Front Mission years ago and how incredible Metal Gear is on so many aspects. An incomprehensible and catastrophic attempt to survive and infiltrate, bad on all fronts, Left Alive deserves now to rest in peace.

Intruders: Hide and Seek in spite of an intriguing concept pain to establish an atmosphere, a tension, the fault to a technique too much chick, but also because of a series of missions which seems only thought to lengthen the narrative of a title which although it lasts only four hours, has already seemed very long.

When Ski Lifts Go Wrong by its original proposal seemed to have this little fun and crazy thing that makes the difference for this kind of games, it turns out to be boring in its complex handling, redundant in its execution and finally very little entertaining, except if you are passionate about engineering.

8 / 10 - Unruly Heroes
Jan 31, 2019

Unruly Heroes borrows from Rayman Origins, Trine, Guacamelee, but rather than a sum of references that would drain of his substance, the ideas of these titles that he makes his are magnified thanks to a controlled sense of rhythm, a constant renewal, a sublime artistic direction and an adventure full of humor. Like on a small cloud. Magical.

8 / 10 - Wargroove
Jan 30, 2019

It took a decade for the vacuum left by the absence of Advance Wars to be filled, not by a new game in the series but by Wargroove, an independent title that has all its qualities. The difference is the tone and look, the fantasy world rather than the military too, but for the rest, Wargroove is the turn-based tactical game that fans of the genre were waiting for, especially on Nintendo Switch obviously.

4 / 10 - Vane
Jan 17, 2019

Initially intriguing by his artistic direction, mysterious in its final, and even if it has the good idea to offer the happiness of being a bird, Vane goes from meditative to painful far too fast, served by a technique too much weak in regard to its size and a lack of sensation, which it does not manage to tie the bottom and the form of its experiment.

The disappointment is up to the punk, idiotic and meta fun that the first two No More Heroes provided. Admiring the independent scene that has revolutionized the video game in recent years, Suda51 gives the impression of having missed the hype train with this new, painful game.

STONE is an amorphous title, an elliptical point-to-point simulator, the level zero of interactivity.

Always more generous, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate offers many ways to have fun alone or with others, and a game concept that will satisfy both newcommers and specialists. If we can regret the absence of a true story for the adventure mode, this remains only a small detail compared to the amazing quality and content of the whole thing. Colossal!

Ast'rix & Ob'lix XXL 2 is still nice today despite its age, especially for the youngest, and if this remaster could have been more generous, it fuels the curiosity about the upcoming third episode more developed and meeting the current technical standards.
