Path to Mnemosyne will transport you to an atypical (too short) journey in the unconscious of a young girl. Transcend by its artistic direction and its music the game of DevilishGames deserves your attention, in spite of some puzzles badly dosed and an abrupt end. If you want to discover an unhealthy and oppressive adventure psychologically, and challenge your brain, Path to Mnemosyne is for you.

Don't be fooled by the cute and childish look of Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, because the game actually has some formidable aspects, like a wealthy content, huge dungeons and a tough challenge. Despite a technology which is almost the same than the original game and persistant flaws, the game is very catchy. If you missed the original title, or if you are a chcocobo, Final Fantasy or a Mystery Dungeon fan, it's a decent proposition. However, it's too bad that the game can be so punitive, and the technical side as well its usability hasn't been reworked.

Thanks to StrangerVille, The Sims 4 are getting out of their comfort zone in favor of a pleasantly surprising originality. Its news world is well-made and full of charm, and its investigation is basic but pleasant. All of it makes of StrangerVille one of the most pleasant Sims' DLC in a long time. However, its story is rather short but counterbalanced by its singular setting. A rich pack in its own way, that keeps all its promises and is sold half as much as a classic extension.

Etrian Odyssey Nexus is a nice farewell letter to the fans. The game is the best of the previous titles, and shows again a well-known game formula, but still pleasant with a mapping which is very good to draw. The game is like a party we would not leave. Until we figure out what the series will become, those who enjoy both dungeons-crawlers and mapping can certainly buy this new entry.

Kindom Hearts III is like a giant Disneyland Park. The game keeps its promises and will delight all the players who will buy it. He renews the combat system in a very good way, but has few minors flaw making the experience not totally sastisfying even if it's a very good trip. KH 3 is generous in its content, offers a nice conclusion and the fans will really enjoy the game. The newcomers could feel a little bit lost though, but this title is without any doubt one of the great games of the beginning of this year.

In short, both games have excellent gameplay mechanics but a little bit cheap in their content.

It's always a pleasure to meet George and Nico again in their latest adventures to date. The Switch version contains some new features, especially two modes of gameplayand a renewed interface. We only regret a less successfull final act, than before and some illogical riddles which need to refer to the game help.But if you never have played this game, this ''ultimate'' version is an excellent opportunity to discover it.

Fist of the North Star': Lost Paradise gives us a mixed impression': if we find the series'mythology through its characters and the combat system again, the rest gives the feel of playing to a poor copy of Yakuza. Those who seek a good dose of ultra-violence and the Hokuto techniques will enjoy a good time with this game. Still, once more with a game showing Kenshiro and its lore, we can't help feeling that it's a great waste.

428 Shibuya Scramble has its realistic atmosphere and a well-written and non-linear story which keeps the player in suspense and great characters . The fanatics of special visual nouvels should really enjoy the game. But this genre adresses to a niche audience, especially beacause there is no animations and the story remained in english.

Forget the flawed spin-off named Valkyrira Revolution with Valkyria Chronicles 4. Sega delivers a formula that still wonderfully works ten years later. Its unique design makes the game recognizable among all others. The difficulty is quite high and will occupy you for a while besides all the sidequests. The translation into french language is another reason to buy this game mixing story, strategy and tactical sens despite a few flaws. We hope we will no longer wait for ten years before antoher game like this comes on our home consoles.

DQ XI is classic in its shape,despite some additions and new features, but the game managed to surprise us in a beautiful way due to its scenario. Epic and surprising for the series, he will affect palyers looking for a very good JRPG with texts translated into french. We would have liked to have a better technique especially for the score. But its richness, its characters are also here to give us a nice adventure. And it's seems obvious that all the fans have to buy the game.

AirHeart is a haunting game with some game's mechanics offering many hours of flight, but this is unfortunately at the cost of some repetitiveness. The possibility of making crafts and customize your plane allows you to have a gear that adapts to the way you play. The history is not unforgettable but the music that will accompany you throughout your trip deserve this rise.

13 / 20 - The Free Ones
Jul 22, 2018

For his third title, Farsky Interactive worked the platformer game using the grapple as a means of propulsion. The Free Ones is a good game that gives you some pleasant moments, even if it is not perfect and environments are missing life. Through his adventure, Theo will embark on a conventional story, but here it is more the way you progress that must be retained rather than the epilogue.

Sega Megadrive Classics is certainly not ''the'' ultimate collection which will satisfy everyone, due to the lack of some great games and the retirement of others, but the new entries are also remarkable. The offer is still efficient as before. We regret that too few games can be played in french language. Still, for the price, that collection worth its purchase, either to discover some forgotten gems ( and some rotten games too), or to initiate those who have not known the90's in video games with a best-of coming from one of the best consoles of its generation.

8 / 20 - Bouncy Bob
May 17, 2018

Boucy Bob is not a good indie game. He has still some ideas, and it sell price is cheap. But this doesn't explain the lacks shown within': the one single button gameplay could have been a good idea, but is the main limitation of the title as well. Furthermore, with a small number of levels and a very weak multiplayer mode, Bouncy Bob is even more limited. Instead of bouncing, that game falls flat like an old football after a few hours.

20 / 20 - God of War
Apr 12, 2018

We had to wait 5 years to get a new episode of the God of War franchise, but it was worth it. After getting lost with its previous episode, the serie returns to the top, which it has already known in the past. Managing the father-son relationship works great and Atreus is more than just an awkward NPC. All the elements of the puzzle fit perfectly and naturally to offer a memorable adventure that proves that risk taking can pay off. Even if he loses some of his excessiveness, Kratos has never been so indisputable in your library. It is impossible to miss this God of War if you own a PlayStation 4, the game takes a clear lead over the competition for the title of the GOTY 2018.

Radiant Historia': Perfect Chronology isn't as perfect as we expected, but is still an excellent opportunity to test a game which was never officialy released in Europe in a enhanced version. We would have enjoyed a more significant technical progress, and a french translation for this title who has a very developped story. These few minors flaws should not prevent the 3DS owners from playing a gold standard in japanese role-playing game.

Monster Hunter World doesn't revolutionize the genre, but improves it anyway. Indeed, apart from loading times that can sometimes seem long and some graphic bugs, the game has improved a formula that has always worked. If some changes may disappoint long-time fans, the game remains accessible to everyone. Rethink a game is never an easy thing, but Capcom has succeeded. As epic as it is beautiful, Monster Hunter World is a must-have of the saga.
