12 / 20 - Scrap Riders
Jan 22, 2023

Scrap Riders is not bad. He is just a little clumsy in his execution. Which is enough to make the experience somewhat painful. And so, despite a rather nice universe, it is difficult to take total pleasure. The game gives off a feeling of slowness and heaviness not negligible. Result: we often end up with the feeling of doing useless things and fighting like devils during the combat phases, especially because of a maneuverability that leaves something to be desired.

It's hard to really give a clear opinion on Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song, except that it really is not to be put in everyone's hands. While some will see in this game a real call to adventure, others will be completely helpless in the face of the overflow of freedom that is offered to them. However, it is quite possible that the fighting will put everyone in agreement in frustration.

17 / 20 - Ragnarock
Dec 27, 2022

With Nuclear Blast RAID, Ragnarock welcomes 9 new metal tracks that will delight fans of the genre. The formula is still as effective as ever. Of course, we would have liked to have even more, or even enjoy a new setting, but it's always good to take, this time with folk metal and pagan metal that take us in their sustained rhythm. The drakkar, which sports a bow head in the shape of momentum, as the new hammers are, as usual, successful, with a radioactive green reminiscent of the logo of the music label associated with the title.

Dragonflight is an expansion rich in major new features based more on exploration and history. No more endless farming of an essential resource for the evolution of your character as was the case with the prodigious power, or more recently the Anima in previous expansions. Even though the game is technically aging, the art direction is still enjoyable and, in a way, the game still beautiful. The atmospheres are varied, the scenery is huge and the music is always pleasant to listen to (special mention to the theme of dragon flight races). Many hours of fun in perspective.

If Resident Evil Village is the beautiful conclusion of Ethan Winters' story, the Shadows of Rose DLC closes the show of the whole family brilliantly. Reconnecting with the fear and helplessness felt during the first hours of the license, this curtain drop on a journey started in 2017 suffers only a few flats not spoiling the experience. The adventures of the young Winters are engaging, even if sometimes a little cliché, and we almost come to regret the end of some areas as they have freaked out our little heart.

God of War Ragnarök is a long-awaited masterpiece. Without revolutionizing everything, the game is bigger, more ambitious, more enjoyable in its fights.

Dakar Desert Rally, has good foundations but is unfortunately imperfect on many points.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is a gem. A gripping narrative game, with touching characters, a frankly successful dubbing and a high-flying OST.

The result remains indeed very beautiful and very fluid.

15 / 20 - Steelrising
Sep 7, 2022

Its gameplay is effective, the choreography of its fights is impeccable and the challenge is present. The chosen era and the steampunk aspect also blend surprisingly well and bring a little freshness to a genre that has become accustomed to heroic fantasy or science fiction.

Cult of the Lamb offers an addictive mix of satanic management and occult action, sprinkled with cartoonish humor and adorable visuals.

Hard to be categorical with Yurukill. The shoot'em up phases are pleasant, the story is generally interesting, even if the ending will tend to disappoint, and it is quite satisfying to see the characters evolve over the course of our investigations.

MADiSON is a horror game that had everything to please, but only on paper.

16 / 20 - Stray
Jul 21, 2022

A one-shot experience as sweet as it is heavy with meaning for humanity, Stray is a game that knows how to keep us on our toes and captivate us.

This new-gen version of Deliver Us The Moon fulfills its main promises, namely an eye-catching aesthetic and support for recent machine innovations.

Disgaea 6 on PS5 and PS4 is just a simple port as we see trucks. The game takes advantage of the power of consoles, certainly, but is not very greedy anyway and the improvements are almost imperceptible.

DotEmu and Tribute Games offer us a very beautiful passionate legacy of our youth in the company of the four turtles.

Sunbreak remains in the continuity of Monster Hunter Rise and the quality is undeniably at the rendezvous.

17 / 20 - The Quarry
Jun 27, 2022

The Quarry is certainly an excellent vintage for lovers of narrative games with irreversible consequences and sometimes... Brutal. The characters are convincing, endearing and the actors fully embodied.

As it stands, Roller Champions doesn't offer much. It certainly has a good foundation with its resolutely arcade gameplay, ultra accessible, simple game rules, but that's it. Content level, we have nothing to put under the tooth.
