SpongeBob Cosmic Shake is a small but decent platform game without much pretension. THQ's title prefers to capitalise on its accessibility and fan service rather than trying to offer a dense and deep adventure. A choice that will certainly delight the youngest, but much less the older fans. The game is indeed content with the bare minimum regarding its structure, its writing and its gameplay and if it succeeds in what it undertakes, one can only complain that it really does too little. And it's a pity, as the universe lends itself well to it.

Season A Letter to the Future is the PS5 gem of the beginning of this year. The atmospheric game captivates from the very first seconds thanks to its poetry and melancholy. A splendid and magnetic game as much on the visual level as the writing of its dreamlike universe. An artistic spectacle as sublime as its narrative premise that remains intriguing during the few hours needed to complete it.

Dead Space Remake is more than just a remake, it's a whole new game. Motive has done a titanic job to give a second life to one of the masterpieces of the survival horror genre. Not only its graphics are a real slap in the face and its sound design is absolutely fantastic, but he few gameplay adjustments and the work on the level design offer a real added value. Even those who know the original game by heart will be surprised. An incredible dive into horror and a real "new gen" slap in the face. Now we only want one thing, the sequel, and quickly!

5 / 10 - Forspoken
Jan 24, 2023

Square Enix did the right thing by investing in an entirely new franchise. But in the end, Forspoken is a huge disappointement with too many flaws to be a good game. A bland open world with forgets to shape its own identity, a poor writing and too many weakness from a technical point of view, coexist with some good gameplay mechanics like the spells and the parkour.

Monster Hunter Rise gets a third life on Sony and Microsoft consoles and succeeds, with a few bumps in the road. If you can't take away the fact that it's extremely generous, devilishly enjoyable and relatively clean visually, you also tend to think that there could have been more.

As Blazing Chrome, Vengeful Guardian Moonrider is a neat tribute to old action games. It really feels like a lost Mega Drive title, but on more modern platforms. A good retro trip with a gorgeous aesthetics from the 90s and a soundtrack that could have been in a Streets of Rage game. Imperfect, yes, but generous.

8 / 10 - Tinykin
Jan 9, 2023

Yes, Tinykin is definitely a good one. The game may be short, but it feels great. With its mastered and skilfully used gameplay, stimulating exploration, a lot of humour and an appealing art direction, Splashteam's game manages to give us a great time. In short, it's a real breath of fresh air that will certainly delight fans of the genre and will certainly surprise all the others.

5 / 10 - Scrap Riders
Jan 9, 2023

Scrap Riders attempts a surprising mix of point & click and beat'em all and it works. The puzzles are rather pleasant and the action phases are mastered and very dynamic. The problem is that the game is also extremely talkative, doesn't tell much and makes heavy and/or embarrassing jokes (you either like it or you don't), when it doesn't stick references under our noses as if we weren't able to notice them. As a bonus, the pixel art often hinders readability in exploration and combat. As a result, the experience is clearly not as exciting as hoped and the good ideas are stifled by a general lack of finesse.

It is now a constant, with Arkanoid Eternal Battle, Pastagames offers a very nice reinvention of a great video game classic. Those who in their younger years broke bricks so that the little ship Vaus could carry out its mission will find their 1986 game as if they were in a game center, in addition to a Neo mode that brings enough novelties and good ideas to boost interest. Finally, the Battle Royale, a great novelty here, fits perfectly to Taito's cult title, especially when the whole is supported by visuals and electro-futuristic music of the best effect.

Dragon Quest Treasures could have been a Switch's little gem, but it will remain in the shadow of its elder brother. With its efficient collecting, taming and crafting mechanics, the spin-off could get any gamer hooked. The exploration is generous, engaging, but the annoying back and forth, the lack of fast travel, the laughably poor combat system and the shaky technique will get the better of the most patient. A fun game, captivating at its best, with wasted potential.

6 / 10 - Smurfs Kart
Dec 20, 2022

If it cruelly lacks madness and content to stand out, Smurfs Kart remains a correct family entertainment, in the so cute universe of Peyo.

The Witcher III was one of the biggest video games of 2015, it is now, thanks to this careful update for the latest consoles, one of the biggest of 2022, unabashedly thanks to the care given to these PS5, Xbox Series and PC versions.

FF7 Crisis Core Reunion is neither more nor less than an old school game with an angelic face that stills has some charm.

It may not revolutionise the licence, certainly not, but we have to admit that Criterion has done a nice job with this Need for Speed Unbound. The game is beautiful, generous and fills all the boxes of a good arcade game. The racing is exhilarating and the difficulty is there.

Warhammer 40,000 : Darktide offers a very pleasant and fun cooperative multiplayer experience. However, we hope that the bugs (especially on PC) will be solved as soon as possible.

The Creator of Dead Space is back to horror and it hits hard. The Callisto Protocol is an intense, violent and old-school survival-horror. A game with a sense of horrific aesthetics that hits the nail on the head, a delightful atmosphere carried by a devastating sound design and a solid, brutal and gore combat system. Very Good.

Marvel's Midnight Suns is a very good tactical RPG. A real ode to the Marvel universe that has enough qualities and fan service to please everyone. Combats, scenario, casting, everything is look great. Only regret, the game is sometimes a little slow in its implementation, with a lot of dialogues.

As good as it is bad, Pokemon Violet & Scarlet doesn't do anything lightly. For the first time in the series, we experience a pure freedom. Paldea is very huge, Pokemon are numerous and it has never been so exciting to complete your Pokédex. However, the technical aspects are a pure disaster. Instead of being a Nintendo Switch must-have, this 9G starts is just a hyper addictive okay game.

The Devil in Me is certainly the best game of The Dark Pictures Anthology thanks to its antagonist, to this hotel full of traps and a scarier experience than before. At the same time, this episode has the same flaws than its predecessors.
