6 / 10.0 - Skull and Bones
Feb 20, 2024

Clearly, Skull and Bones has suffered from years of development and numerous changes of direction. The handling of the ships is well done, but everything around them is much less so. The in-game phases are very repetitive, and boarding and pillaging are nothing more than identical cinematics. The very principle of the experience is to go back and forth until you reach the end of the main campaign. Not to mention that the technology is not worthy of a game marketed in 2024 at this price.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League isn't as catastrophic as first expected. The gameplay is fun, there's plenty of humor in keeping with the personalities of the playable characters, and the visuals are just right. However, we can't overlook the repetitive experience, the almost anecdotal evolution tree, the inconsistencies in the storyline and the unacceptable launch of a game and its microtransactions. I recommend the game to those who have the chance to get together with friends and are big fans of the DC Comics franchises. Otherwise, it's best to wait for a discount before checking out.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Universim
Feb 9, 2024

The Universim is proof that it is possible to emerge from a long period of early access. The title offers a successful divine simulation experience with an original art direction. Difficulty is high, but the game remains accessible even for new players. All in all, the experience is a positive one, even if a few aspects, such as in-game speed and a tutorial that's not always easy to follow, still need a little fine-tuning. I'd recommend this title mainly to regulars of the genre.

Once again, Capcom offers a near-perfect compilation of a franchise that deserves a little more attention. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy offers substantial improvements, even if Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice suffer a little more visually. The added bonuses will please fans, but I mainly recommend the game for those who haven't yet had the chance to discover these sequels to the license. In any case, I hope that the developers will be allowed to design a new opus in the future.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ready or Not
Dec 22, 2023

There's no doubt that Ready or Not is one of the most immersive experiences of 2023. The definitive version of this title developed by VOID Interactive offers realistic gameplay, with a wealth of equipment at our disposal. The missions are varied, while the art direction is completely immersive, especially when played in cooperation with friends. While the artificial intelligence of some opponents still needs fine-tuning, this is a complete game that will keep you busy for hours on end. Nevertheless, I'd recommend playing it with colleagues to get the ultimate experience the developers are aiming for.

8 / 10.0 - House Flipper 2
Dec 21, 2023

For me, House Flipper 2 is a fine example of what you'd expect from a sequel to this kind of game. If the first title was a success with the community, it's important to keep track of what was appreciated. This second opus offers a similar experience, but with improved gameplay, visuals and ergonomics. It's true that the content seems a little sparse, and that it would have been interesting to include much more content right from the start. However, the game developed by the Frozen District and Empyrean team should appeal to older players, while being more accessible to new users.

Avatar Frontiers of Pandora is a game that would have deserved much better visibility from Ubisoft. The title is without doubt the most beautiful ever developed by the publisher, and offers a perfect adaptation of the world imagined by James Cameron. Without offering an experience that reinvents the genre, the title remains solid on its feet. However, there's a sense that the game is trying to do too much without going too deeply into its features. Not to mention that the developers have done an extraordinary job in building Pandora, but our immersion is often disrupted by numerous fades to black and small loadouts. All in all, the title remains fun, and players looking for an immersive adventure in the Na'Vi community will be convinced.

NARUTO X BORUTO Ultimate Ninja STORM CONNECTIONS was to be the perfect opus for all fans of the franchise, and even for new players wishing to discover this universe. The basic premise is interesting, with spectacular battles, a large character roster and accessible gameplay. Unfortunately, the story mode aims to summarize the franchise too quickly, and leaves out several key battles. What's more, the new Boruto storyline is rather weak overall. Not to mention the visual quality, which doesn't meet today's high standards. I'd mainly recommend this title to players who are already familiar with CyberConnect2's other opuses and who will enjoy online battles.

7.5 / 10.0 - Cities: Skylines 2
Nov 30, 2023

Cities Skylines 2 brings its share of new features, including even more in-depth management of your city. The financial aspect is more difficult and may come as a surprise to some, but after a few attempts you'll get the hang of it. However, the heavy tutorial for older players and the numerous technical problems spoil the experience for many.

Electrician Simulator offers a rather interesting concept for learning the real techniques used by electricians. The object repair missions are also a good way of learning more about the workings of our surroundings. Unfortunately, the gameplay loop is very repetitive and the variation in missions is rather weak. After just a few hours of play, I quickly got the impression that I'd come full circle, and that I'd be revisiting the same objectives over and over again, with a few variations. The basis of the title is there, but in my opinion, more content needs to be added to keep the player going. For the time being, I'd recommend this experience above all to fans of the genre.

Football Manager 2024 remains the grand champion of its category. The title developed by the Sports Interactive team is as complete as ever. This year's changes to gameplay and squad planning have had a real impact on our games. The introduction of new championships every year means that there's something for everyone. I still regret the absence of women's leagues, but I imagine this is an idea the developers have already had, and we'll just have to be patient. All in all, this is the best sports management experience on the market. However, the interface is still very busy and may not suit all players.

8 / 10.0 - EA Sports WRC
Nov 21, 2023

For me, EA Sports WRC lays the foundations for what Codemasters wants to offer. Offered at a lower price than most AAA titles, it features a complete career mode with the introduction of the 3 main categories. The on-track sensations are quite good, with an accomplished visual rendering. Nevertheless, and despite the presence of several accessibility options, the game does not offer the possibility of restarting a portion of a special stage. As a result, you have to continue to the end or start from the beginning. A surprising choice, especially as this is a fairly recurrent option in games of the genre. Chaotic menus and a lack of finish in certain areas may also disappoint players. The game is aimed primarily at fans of the old DiRT Rally series, without taking any risks. The base is there, now it's time to improve it!

7.5 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 5
Nov 16, 2023

The license doesn't suffer the same fate as some of the publisher's sports games, and this allows the developers to make some real changes. This is the case for EA Sports UFC 5, which benefits from the use of the Frosbite engine and brings a number of visual novelties while fine-tuning its gameplay. Realism is the order of the day, with an injury system that affects our fights and longevity in career mode. Nevertheless, the title remains relatively inaccessible to new players, while the content itself remains rather weak. If you're not a fan of career mode, online battles become very repetitive. It's clear, however, that the franchise is heading in the right direction.

8 / 10.0 - Jusant
Oct 31, 2023

Jusant is undoubtedly one of the best surprises of 2023. Unveiled to gamers just a few months ago, DON'T NOD's title offers an unusual experience. The gameplay perfectly transcribes the movements of the climber, while the environment provides a dose of difficulty throughout the adventure. Although the experience is fairly short, and you sometimes feel a little lost in your progress, it's easy to immerse yourself in this adventure. I would, of course, have liked a little more, but I think the developers stopped at just the right moment to avoid the impression of doing the same thing over and over again. In short, a little nugget that I'd recommend to gamers looking for a slightly different experience.

Wild Card Football's arcade experience succeeds in its main aim: to be above all a fun experience. We enjoy creating our own team, customizing it and using our powers to overcome any opponent. Nevertheless, matches quickly become repetitive, and the only interest is to play online. Frustration can set in if your opponent takes a malicious pleasure in waiting until the end of the countdown. Perhaps I'd have liked even shorter quarters, and why not cut the game in half? Technical problems also seem to greatly hamper the game on certain platforms.

I was rather skeptical about having a sequel so soon, but I'm forced to admit that Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged has succeeded. The title offers several new features that further diversify the pleasures. While the soundtrack remains repetitive and I was hoping to keep the environments from the last game as well as the new ones, the game remains more interesting. The more comprehensive story mode is an excellent introduction to the different types of racing. The art direction remains faithful to the actual license, and will undoubtedly provide fun for young and old alike.

6.5 / 10.0 - Highrise City
Oct 14, 2023

Highrise City is the culmination of an almost entirely solo project. The title makes a real attempt to distance itself from the other experiences available on the market. It offers an honest management aspect as well as a fairly advanced resource system. Nevertheless, the game fails to achieve the same overall quality in terms of interface, soundtrack and even visual proposition. There are still a few elements that need fine-tuning.

6.5 / 10.0 - Paleo Pines
Oct 6, 2023

The idea behind Paleo Pines is interesting enough, and offers a little variety for the genre. However, the execution behind this idea still seems to lack polish. The title's content is rather weak. I would have liked to have been able to decorate my house and have more objects to place on my plot. The artistic direction of its content lacks punch at times and is a little too uniform. Fortunately, the way in which the dinosaurs are adopted makes up for the shortcomings a little, but I'd mainly recommend the game to regulars of the genre who are keen to discover a new adventure. For neophytes, other experiences are far superior to Paleo Pines.

7.5 / 10.0 - My Little Universe
Oct 5, 2023

Quite simplistic, My Little Universe offers a refreshing experience with a unique concept and art direction. The game is very accessible and easy to understand, while the exploration of the planets makes you want to continue playing without stopping. The main drawback is the feeling of repetition that can be felt after several hours of play, and which may discourage some players. However, if you don't mind this element, you'll be overwhelmed by this survival adventure like no other. There's no doubt that this is an ideal game if you're looking for some mindless fun.

For me, Assassin's Creed Mirage is the return to basics that many gamers have been hoping for. Infiltration makes a major comeback, without making the gameplay too rigid. The city of Baghdad is particularly dense and representative of the period. Even if the experience doesn't reinvent anything, it's pleasant to have a narrative put forward and a logical lifespan for this kind of game. While there are still a few technical problems, particularly with collisions, and there are few new features, the overall experience is fun. Now Ubisoft will have to roll up its sleeves for the next generation of this iconic franchise. A return to basics works for this time, and we mustn't repeat the mistakes of the past.
