13 / 20 - The Big Con
Aug 31, 2021

A true tribute to the 90's with its universe and discussions full of references and its graphic paw reminiscent of the cartoon Doug, The Big Con is not a game to put in all hands. The title is based on a gameplay focused on theft that never evolves, dialogues in the vein of the time, now uncomfortable, and an atmosphere of the 90s that works wonderfully. A funny game worthy of a sitcom, which can tire at times, but which seems reserved only for the nostalgic.

17 / 20 - Humankind
Aug 30, 2021

Humankind delivers on its promises and delivers a controlled and complete 4X experience. The feeling of freedom in our choices and our way of approaching our parts is real and the studio offers us a wide range of possibilities with many different civilizations and a well-thought-out heredity system.

18 / 20 - Psychonauts 2
Aug 29, 2021

If you are looking for a fresh and pleasant experience to go through without taking the cabbage, Psychonauts 2 is the ideal candidate. Artistically inspired, rather beautiful, funny and generous whether in terms of content, or gameplay mechanics, you never get bored. Inventive and creative, Double Fine has cared for its foal in every detail, from writing to environments to collectibles, must do it.

Mama cooked us a bland and tasteless episode. You will have understood, the table that is depicted here is not very bright.

20 / 20 - Hades
Aug 23, 2021

Hades is a great vintage, we knew it since its release, we confirm it in these lines. Supergiant Games has given it its all and serves us one of the best games of recent years. Beautiful to die, artistically irreproachable, the app may not invent anything, but it absolutely transcends all the mechanics related to the genre it represents.

10 / 20 - 12 Minutes
Aug 22, 2021

It could have been one of the most impactful indie games of 2021, it will be one of the big disappointments of the year. Despite an interesting concept on paper, Twelve Minutes completely misses the execution. Between obscure, sometimes abstruse puzzles and illogical actions, we hoped that the narrative would raise the level but it is not so.

Complicated to approach a Director's Cut and decide on how to evaluate it. Also, it will depend on your experience. If you are devoid of any progression in Ghost of Tsushima, there is no question to ask, go for it, our 17/20 + favorite is more valid than ever, the work being more immersive with technical changes or improvements via the DualSense.

15 / 20 - Road 96
Aug 16, 2021

Developed by a small team of about fifteen people, Road 96 is a narrative and artistic success. The title charms from the first moments with its mesmerizing atmosphere, its exotic environments and especially its characters as colorful as the game. Relying on procedural storytelling was a risky bet, but brilliantly taken up thanks to a mastered, funny and touching writing, carried by interactive gameplay and intelligent mechanics.

15 / 20 - The Ramp
Aug 15, 2021

I didn't expect anything from it and... I am not disappointed. This is how we could summarize The Ramp, a game that wanted to capture the feeling of relaxation created by the practice of skateboarding under a chill music.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a successful, generous title with more detailed gameplay than you might think.
