8.5 / 10.0 - Ship Of Fools
Nov 25, 2022

What Fika Production has achieved with Ship of Fools is far from obvious, namely to reinvent itself in a genre that has taken a lot of space in the last few years. The game will catch you by its presentation as well as its frenzied rhythm during the games. If you can play it with two people, it's even better. But the adventure itself is worth the effort if you like roguelike games. And that's good because I love it. If that's the case for you, there's no reason not to fall in love with Ship of Fools!

Tactics Ogre: Reborn pays an excellent tribute to a game that is seen as a reference of the genre. Square Enix found ways to make its title more approachable which is great for newcomers. Although the fights can be very long, the game remains to this day one of the best TRPG. Yes, they could've done a lot more, but it's already a big step in the right direction.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 returns the series to its former glory. I pretty much disliked Vanguard, but this one does much better. We totally understand why the community is so passionate and critical about this new release. After all, Activision delivers bestsellers year after year and, in our opinion, this one will be no exception.

One positive point: the game is really of a higher quality than its predecessor. I had a lot of fun in my Star Ocean: The Divine Force journey and I believe that is the ultimate goal. Granted, the game is far from perfect but this series never was. If you stick with the story, you will definitely enjoy it as well as the personality of the characters, because the writing is so good. Unfortunately, I've also strained my eyes more often than I care to admit. For the role-playing enthusiast, I believe it deserves your attention.

Shovel Knight Dig is a great little game. Small in length but big in quality. It's easy to start a game for a few minutes and come back to it later. It's also easy to lose yourself in a couple of more minutes of gameplay. Once again, a great success from Yacht Club Games that we highly recommend.

The game itself will speak to a very niche group. Because, as everyone knows, metal music is not the most popular thing in the world. But for those who like it, I can tell you that you will have a great time. The game is still short for its price but the interest is always to improve your score in this type of game. This makes it possible to come back to it more than once. And it allows us to know the lyrics of the songs and to appreciate the artists. Lots of headbanging to be expected!

Nobody Saves the World is exactly what I've come to expect from a DrinkBox Studios game and more! The game is completely surreal with absurd and ridiculous humor. Even after completing it I want to go back and start a new game. Especially since I didn't mention it but the game offers co-op! I just need to find a friend with a sense of humor as twisted as mine and the developers...

Blossom Tales 2 is a good game, but it won't shine since others took the exact same approach and delivered a better experience. However, it could be a good starting point to those new to the genre or a great option for those that beat all the other games of this style and ask for more. Despite its very affordable price, it comes short in innovation to really stand out.

It's a narrative game from start to finish with very little interaction required of you. And when they do come, the various choices will not change the result at all. However, the story is intriguing and will keep you hooked until the end and the visual style is sublime. It would be nice to say a lot more about the game but in all honesty, there is not much to add. The game ends rather quickly (about 3 hours) and whether it's your time of game or not, is entirely up to you. As for me, I recommend it for fans of the genre.

8 / 10.0 - Stray
Jul 30, 2022

Stray is the perfect game to rest. Be in a trance and let yourself be guided by the path in front of you. The game does not ask its player to put himself in a stressful situation. This is not too much in a world where there are many sources of stress and conflict. The puzzles are relatively easy for young and old alike. Well, we agree that if the game asked us to embody a dog it would be even better. Who knows, maybe the idea is already germinating in the studio's head. For now, we'll just purr and bend our backs. And let's not forget the nap. I like naps.

8 / 10.0 - Moss: Book II
Jul 3, 2022

After a very successful first book, we are more than happy to find our little mouse for a new adventure. Keeping the basics that made the first game a success, Moss: Book 2 takes us even further. We quickly see that Polyarc has made the most of PSVR and that it is undoubtedly one of the last good titles on the platform before its future iteration. I hope the studio will continu its great work during Sony's PSVR2 era, because they've proven once again that they're the best at it. It's an absolute must-have for any holder of the virtual reality headset. As long as you still have a PS4 controller if you play on PS5.

7 / 10.0 - Kao the Kangaroo
May 28, 2022

Kao the Kangaroo will not go down in history, I think you probably guessed it. We have to admit that it represents an interesting and still accessible challenge for people who are new to the genre. Your children could find it a lot of fun and it could prepare them to tackle little more fleshed out games. It's absolutely nothing mean-spirited towards Kao the Kangaroo but just like the other games in the series, it lacks something to elevate it to the level of the best games in the genre. Its lifespan of about 8 hours is more than reasonable and that's why it can be interesting for newer gamers.

10 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Mar 29, 2022

I can't praise Elden Ring enough. However, beyond the praise, you should know that Elden Ring is probably the best game I've had the chance to play, nothing less. Yes I know, we will have to take a step back in order to weigh the words well in the coming months, even the next few years. What we can say with certainty is that Elden Ring and FromSoftware have just set the bar very high for games of the genre. We talk about Elden Ring as we have talked about Super Mario 64, Metal Gear Solid or Half-Life through the years. This is the apotheosis of “Souls-like” and who knows, maybe an “Elden-like” genre has just emerged. The game is just that good.

Actraiser Renaissance is a tasty mix of many genres. At the same time a plateformer, a strategy game and a shooter, we can say its his own unique genre. Early adopters will find their way around quite quickly, while newcomers will enjoy it. A very nice tribute to a game that marked its time.

Ninja Gaiden : Master Collection doesn't offer anything exceptionnal. You get three good games that received visual enhancements and faster loading times. Despite the fact that all the DLC content is also included, it would've been more interesting to add a couple of new elements for the fans. Nevertheless, it's a pretty sweet deal for the price if you're looking for a good challenge.

Wonder Boy : Asha in the Monster World was an excellent game back in 1994. Unfortunately, today's remake isn't spicy enough. The game is a classic, but it fails to stand out in today's world especially considering the heavy competition on the market. It's mainly good for the nostalgia if your heart really wants to give it a go.

Kaze and the Wild Masks first seems like just another platformer. But then as you keep playing, you find so much joy and a lot of ressemblances with the best in the genre. We wouldn't go as far as saying it's a simple copy, but rather a nice nod to what made these games so great. And once you are finished, you will remember it as a positive souvenir with a big smile on your face. Isn't that what you should expect from a video game ? Mission accomplished for PixelHive !

Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 is a beautiful take on the original game. The story is compelling and the soundtrack really takes over the game and brings it to another level. Though it might not be as great as Nier : Automata, fans of the genre will enjoy the experience and remember it for a long time.

Disco Elysium : The Final Cut adds a lot of elements to its arsenal at the same time as it lands on PlayStation and Stadia. It is a masterpiece that should be played by all fans of RPGs. Entertaining and captivating is how I would summarize my trip to Elysium. I'll be back, for sure.

8 / 10.0 - DiRT 5
Apr 18, 2021

DiRT 5 is a good game. Not the best of the series, but far from the worst. It is excessively beautiful and a whole lot of fun. It will please the fan of racing games, but mostly the ones that just like to play from time to time. Those looking for realism will probably pass on that one.
