8.9 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 7, 2019

Indivisible is a delightful work, a mix of genres, inspirations, characters, shapes, colors and sensations that on paper should rarely work but instead here becomes a stylistic and playful figure. Despite small and sometimes annoying defects, the title Lab Zero is a precious jewel of playability and narrative.

8.8 / 10.0 - Dirt Rally 2.0
Feb 18, 2019

Codemasters has succeeded in perfecting an already spectacular driving model, making it more reactive and enjoyable, launching DiRT Rally 2.0 towards the throne of the best rally game ever. Launching, because at day one, without events on the snow, the title is missing a fundamental piece. Apart from that, this is now the most refined rally simulator on the market.

8.6 / 10.0 - Grid
Oct 8, 2019

Grid is back to establish itself as one of the most exciting racing games in recent years. Missing a bit of courage, but the amount of cars and disciplines manages to keep high the desire to play. There are some technical limits and only 30 frames per second, but also wonderful weather and lighting management.

8.5 / 10.0 - Astral Chain
Aug 26, 2019

Astral Chain is a detective story of the near future, a game with a crazy rhythm and direction. However it is around the gravitational field of his combat system that sensational qualities and unexpected flaws rotate. We're still talking about a memorable, amusing, tachycardic experience, doped by a techno-aesthetic power that flexes Switch's muscles like only Nintendo managed to do. Despite certain flaws endemic to their work (unmanageable camera on all), PlatinumGames confirms itself as the king of stylish action games.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales certainly does not reinvent the original work, but manages to tell a particularly intense story by introducing and deepening an extremely positive character with an overwhelming personality. More compact than Peter Parker's adventure, with an elegantly told political subtext and a warm family dimension that comes to protect at all costs, the Insomniac work then explodes in exploiting what PS5 has to offer from a technical point of view, between impressive lighting that benefits from ray tracing and a world instantly loaded thanks to the potential of the SSD, which practically eliminates pop-up , giving a fluidity to the action, a breath at the stairs and an absolutely breathtaking overall visual impact.

For fans of the original, there will be no problem facing the original Demon's Souls, hard and pure in an aesthetically sumptuous context, damn vivid even in the disturbing rottenness that surrounds it, while for others it may be difficult to swallow an extremely mechanical title, which has exactly the same flaws it had in 2009, especially on the artificial intelligence side. However, the experience remains fascinating, thanks above all to a masterful level design, galvanizing as well as terrifying, that dictates the rhythm of a role-playing experience that is certainly solid and violent.

Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind are two visual novels to live on your own skin, whether you're passionate about the genre or just looking for two great thrillers. And while it is true that the basically vintage structure could create rhythm problems, the quality of the writing, the very important soundtrack and the fabulous aesthetic restyling will make certain design artifices typical of the text adventures of the late 80s forget, leaving room only for the suspence, mystery and beauty of a gameplay that puts communication between characters first.
