Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, has nothing to envy to its elders. A real episode of the 3DS, Nintendo's bet is successful.

More than ever, we find on the cake the very essence of the "fun video game", namely the diabolical precision of a renewed and perfectly rhythmic gameplay, all in a level design to fall and a remarkable density.

Taking, even if it is graphically outdated; unlimited in its features and in the things to be accomplished, Minecraft knows only one limit: that of your imagination.

17 / 20 - Mario Kart 8
Jun 9, 2014

Without a shadow of a doubt, Mario Kart 8 is a high-flying episode. Heir to a string of opuses sharing the same DNA, we are nevertheless surprised to spend countless hours on an incredibly fun game with more stunning tracks than ever and which offer us a refreshing point of view.

17 for those who have played it on PS3. Even if at first glance, the graphic gap may appear derisory on The Last Of Us Remastered, the technical power made available to the game by the PS4 allows it to fully express its potential and captivate once again players who have already traveled the adventure on PS3.

The result of several years of titanic work, the game offers a playful pleasure rarely achieved, the result of the conjunction of wonderfully staged characters and a wealth of universes that force respect.

How to qualify this Dragon Age Inquisition? 'Success' would be the most appropriate word. After the mistakes of the 2nd opus, BioWare has been able to take over the reins to offer what they know how to do best: finely written role-playing game that literally takes us into an epic and incredibly rich fantasy world. The license regains its aura and it is undeniably a title that should not be missed.

Titles that will mark the history of video games, we find perhaps 3 or 4 per generation of consoles. It's very little, still happy, but it's the price of skimming. For many, Smash Bros. on Wii U will be part of this race, that of the venerable, of those who will be talked about by the fire to our grandchildren.

Unsurprisingly, Nintendo has treated this remaster with as much care as the opus Ocarina of Time 3D, that is to say that we are in the presence of a tremendous success on the form thanks to a graphics that does not distort the original work, but the sublime to take it towards more current standards.

As you will understand, Ori and the Blind Forest is the title that every Xbox One owner must have to enjoy his console in 2015. Even though the title is far from the big productions or current standards that make recipe, it offers a gaming experience as too few games know how to do for many years. The game achieves perfection both aesthetically and sonically and plunges us into an intriguing universe from which we have no desire to emerge until we have rekindled the light and joie de vivre that accompanies it. If ori does not yet enchant your days, we impose its purchase without waiting a second more in order to enjoy a session of play from which it is impossible to emerge unscathed.

17 / 20 - Bloodborne
Mar 30, 2015

After about thirty hours spent in the company of Bloodborne, it is clear that we have the impression of playing a game radically different from what is proposed to us all year round. A vibrant tribute to the video game of before, the title proves to us every minute that it swims against the other AAA that ultimately all look the same.

Let's not procrastinate, The Witcher 3 is well at the level we expected it to be. Bulimic RPG that devours everything in its path, the title has absolutely everything to convince. An impressive plastic when you measure the size of its universe, a generosity without limits, then a gameplay certainly classic but well put together.

With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Hideo Kojima did not just create a final masterpiece but he wanted to leave a much stronger mark by renewing the series and literally reinventing the genre of infiltration.

Taking advantage of a title that no longer needs to be proven, The Coalition signs an essential appetizer for Gears of War 4. We find all the enthusiasm and elements that contributed to the success of Gears of War ago almost 10 years now. All carried by a remaster rarely seen since the launch of the new-gen consoles. If you are a fan of the saga or want to discover it, it is impossible to miss this little nugget that is Gears of War Ultimate Edition.

Aug 26, 2015

Journey offers us a different vision of the video game that rocks our daily lives. The arrival of the 1080P coupled with the 60FPS works wonders and the support of the Cross-Buy function is a major asset to convince PS3 players. For newcomers to the PlayStation universe, Journey and one of the best games to illustrate the spirit of originality that drives Sony and allows it to give its chance to projects apart.

19 / 20 - Dark Souls III
Apr 20, 2016

Dark Souls III should serve as a bible for the often difficult exercise of the final episode of a franchise. In conclusion, this ultimate "Soulien" journey is quite simply the masterpiece undoubtedly imagined since the beginning of the series by its creator Miyazaki.

Once again Naughty Dog lives up to the event and the expectations of the players. The studio signed this episode as the most successful of the Uncharted series. The subtle mix of gameplay with that of The Last of Us is very effective and transcends mind-blowing direction and art direction.

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is an exemplary remake, which excels in all areas, of those that we would like to see more often in the mode of the video game . Vanillaware proves that they are indeed the masters of 2D even in 1080p and 60Hertz. But significant progress has also been made in the way of playing, which is proving to be much more flexible, taking advantage of the lessons brought by Dragon's Crown and Muramasa.

17 / 20 - INSIDE
Jul 7, 2016

After Limbo, PlayDead returns in the most beautiful way possible with a dark and cold narrative with a controlled rhythm from beginning to end. Inside seems to surpass its predecessor on all points, from the technique to the depth of its theme that will invite each player to question himself and build his own theory.
