20 / 20 - Persona 5
Apr 17, 2017

Persona 5 puts the JRPG to its rightful place again. Not only is the game a very great Persona, but a very great game in the genre which it belongs as well. Brilliant in every aspect, the game does not leave the player, and brings him across one surprise after another, both in its scenario and its structure. It joins the list of the excellent games in this first half of the year. With its unforgettable characters, its perfect narrative, its flawless combat system and its very lengthy lifespan, we can say it loud and clear, that game is here to steal our player's hearts for the next few months'!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
