11 / 20 - SkateBIRD
Oct 11, 2021

SkateBIRD was designed with a lot of love and it shows in its concept and writing. At its launch, it was impossible to love it even if you tried. Nevertheless, the game is proof that a life-saving patch can completely change the game.

As since its first edition, Geo-Political Simulator 4, 2021 edition, is the most complete and realistic game in terms of geopolitical simulation. A serious sim title that can be troubling and abstruse for most players. Dedicated to a very small niche, it has visually almost not moved for 15 years.

We're not going to lie to each other, Pathfinder won't be accessible to everyone. Far from being sexy at first glance, you will have to overcome its apparent difficulty to fully enjoy this C-RPG with multiple arguments. Because the latter is provided with assets that, if not revolutionary, make it a quality game by developers in love with the genre, without a doubt. So sit back and take the time to savor the story for several dozen hours.

15 / 20 - Far Cry 6
Oct 6, 2021

Far Cry 6 will not be a revival for the license, but it is still trying to rearrange the formula. If in the background, we find everything that makes Far Cry, a Far Cry, the form, it, takes a little new look with additions that make the advance much more organic and less schematized than at the time. Where Far Cry 6 has trouble is in its desire to offer us a credible and mature subject, tainted by a gameplay that is completely at the opposite end of the day.

Despite its convincing 2D aesthetic, its music and its undeniable richness, Astria Ascending misses the boat a little to hope to compete with the greatest of the genre. The fault is a certain lack of inventiveness in the gameplay, a difficulty sometimes too demanding and an unclear course of missions, not to mention some fatal flaws.

In addition to its majestic artistic direction, its stunning staging and its striking musical themes, the title also manages to convince where it was not necessarily expected, thanks to a progression system and a demanding gameplay that borrow the best from references that have proven themselves in the field. Ember Lab is therefore achieving a real tour de force for its first try in the world of gaming and just for that, hats off.

13 / 20 - Steel Assault
Oct 2, 2021

For its first game, Zenovia Interactive achieves its goal: to pay tribute to arcade-type games. Equipped with elaborate graphics – although somewhat aggressive to the eye – and a pleasant soundtrack, perfectly conveying the desired atmosphere, the title has certain qualities. Never repetitive, it presents various enemies and phases. On foot, by boat or by air transport you will not (surely) be bored. Its other particularity lies in its accessibility. Indeed, it can interest both novices and the most experienced among us.

18 / 20 - Tales of Arise
Sep 30, 2021

Tales of Arise marks a real turning point for the license. More mature than its predecessors, the app may deal with the same themes as the previous opus, it adds a lot of nuance and does not fall into the clichés of the genre when treating its characters. Alphen and Shionne form a duo that is both touching and dynamic while the second knives that complete the group are not to be outdone and also benefit from a special care.

16 / 20 - Potion Craft
Sep 28, 2021

Potion Craft is so simple with such a good idea that it can only be interesting for players who are fans of simulation and fantasy. With gameplay that seems simplistic but can have its subtleties, you spend a pleasant time designing your potion stock and responding to the strangest queries of customers. We can't wait to discover the final version with the updates related to the recipes and especially to the shop.

15 / 20 - Deathloop
Sep 25, 2021

With Deathloop, Arkane Lyon has at least two merits: that of launching a new IP, the industry needs it continuously, and trying to think outside the box, while keeping their trademark as well as their strengths. Its multiplayer part, as long as it involves a real player and not the AI, brings a tension that we would not have suspected without getting our hands on it. What's more, it has the luxury of combining successful FPS gameplay with a level design that, once again, demonstrates all the talent of the developers (if there was any need for yet another proof).
