Games that go so far as to making their mark on people's minds right from their first entry are pretty rare nowadays, but Horizon belongs to this closed circle without any doubt possible. Offering a unique story that keeps us on tenterhooks for a minimum of thirty hours, the game stands out with its principal protagonist that we won't forget any time soon, a universe cleverly mixing genres and a visual masterpiece never seen before. Sony keeps months old promises and missing out on such a game early this year seems almost impossible for any Playstation 4 owner. Horizon knocks out its competitors and puts itself in a great place for the GOTY 2017 title.

Zelda manages to change its core mechanics brilliantly with a well thought-out gameplay that undusts the saga while opening the door to newcomers. Its colorful universe and atypical characters are the foundation of a magical experience, and it bewitched us before we realised it. Wandering the land of Hyrule quickly becomes an obsession at any time of the day. It's just a pity that the title is handicaped by the technical shortcomings of the Switch and that the size of the Joy-Cons cause a few hiccups here and there. For those who'll choose to live the adventure in handheld mode, this episode is a must-have on the console and shows that sometimes, only one title is needed to redeem a whole lineup.

20 / 20 - Nier: Automata
Mar 6, 2017

NieR: Automata is the perfect mix between Action RPG and Beat'em all genres. With a solid gameplay at the service of a clever, well written and thought provoking story like rarely seen before, the title is a bliss to go through until a grand final that won't leave you indifferent. Masterful, sublime and moving, the work of Yoko Taro transcends its older sibling without difficulty thanks to a character design, and a visual and musical artistic direction that will take your breath away. However, it's not with its technical side that the title will remain in history, but rather because of something deeper and intimate, like not many games manage to do. Already cult, NieR:Automata deserves indisputably to chair proudly besides the greatests games published to this day.

We left disappointed from our time with Mario Sports Superstars. The intention was good, but unfortunately the scope was too narrow to really grab our attention. Nintendo seems to have rested on its laurels and its expertise to deliver reheated stuff, with no risks taken whatsoever exception made for just one sport which was more a miss than a hit. In reality, the title quickly becomes a drag wether you play alone or online. It's a shame because it shows beautiful assets with a colorful universe and diverse gameplays, but it seems that Nintendo athletes are somehow tired of running in every single competition.

16 / 20 - 2Dark
Mar 10, 2017

Fr'd�rick Raynal makes a successful come back at the survival-horror genre with 2Dark. Taking the infiltration approach for its gameplay, the title shines for its horrifying atmosphere. The studio made no compromise on gore with a great selection of serial killers that will put your nerves to the test, all coated in an original and oldschool art direction with a solid OST.

Quickly tiring and with no real challenge in its single player mode, Wildlands reaches its real interest in cooperative sessions with good teamplayers. Even if its numerous shortcomings will have us curse a lot and often want to quit, after a few hours we get the urge to turn the console back on to come back in Bolivia. Roaming the roads of this country with friends will occupy our time for many long hours and now we just have to hope that a few patchs can bring the whole experience to a more enjoyable level, while expecting the DLCs to bring interesting content.

15 / 20 - Fast RMX
Mar 12, 2017

It's without any filters that Fast RMX brings us at high-speed into a well-made arcade experience . With numerous and sufficiently varied tracks, a well cooked gameplay that demands your attention at all time, the game needs to appear in your library if you're into the genre, all the more so as it's price is a teeny-tiny one.

Despite some flaws still present from its predecessor, Styx : Shards of Darkness is a solid sequel. Even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel, and borrows its mechanics to the biggest stealth games or adventurous ones like Assassin�s Creed, this opus does things well. With its high dosed difficulty that will encourage the player to be discreet and explore the verticality of the great level design, this entry will fulfill players from the outset.

4 / 20 - 1-2-Switch
Mar 16, 2017

Between its overacted intro cinematics, its casting of uninteresting games on the long term and it's high retail price, 1-2 Switch has everything to remain in video game history, but not in the way Nintendo might have hoped. If you haven't bought the infamous compilation, we strongly advise you not to. The manufacturer gives the impression to have tailored this game only to the -sometimes peculiar- japanese tastes, to the point of neglecting the gamers from the rest of the world. We're now making our way back to Zelda so we can forever forget the few hours we had with 1-2 Switch.

Bomberman succeeds perfectly at establishig itself as a good party game on Switch. It manages to keep its fun spirit, mad and colorful that made its past glory. We can only regret that Konami doesn't take any risk and does not try to implement new items, and the precision gets sometimes ruined by the Joy-Con stick. If you're a fan of the ip or the stories lived by your elders got your attention, Super Bomberman R must appear in your Nintendo Switch library.
