7.5 / 10.0 - Monster Hunter Rise
Jan 27, 2023

The new generation port of Monster Hunter Rise is clearly below expectations. In addition to not offering all the content, the improvements are few. The title clearly suffers from its initial release on Switch and it would have been interesting if Capcom had offered a more accomplished version after several years of waiting. Nevertheless, fans of the franchise will find the usual sensations and the encounter of several iconic monsters of the series. It is also possible to play in cooperation with up to 4 players. It should be noted that no cross-platform system has been integrated and you are limited to your friends who are on the same platform. Without much surprise, this PS5 version does not really bring an advantage compared to previous releases despite some successful lighting effects.

SEASON: A Letter to the Future offers a peaceful and uncomplicated experience. The game only asks us to take some time for ourselves and enjoy the present moment. The scenery and sounds are beautiful. But as soon as we look closer, we notice the shortcomings of the game. The controls are far from perfect. The dialogues rarely make sense. And some might find the game a bit repetitive on what we have to accomplish. The game won't be remembered, but it might allow many to take a break from their tumultuous lives. And this is a more than positive point.

River City Girls 2 takes the series to the next level. More frantic fights and devastating combos, the game is a real improvement. The soundtrack is wonderful and you really have a good time. But we won't lie, the game is still expensive and suffers from loading, at least for the version on Nintendo Switch. If you're considering getting it, you might want to consider another version. Unless you don't mind. But know that having tested it on another console, the game probably would have deserved an extra half point. The fact remains that River City Girls 2 is a lot of fun, whether you're playing alone or with your buddies.

8.5 / 10.0 - Fire Emblem Engage
Jan 17, 2023

Fire Emblem Engage tells a great story full of heart that’s probably the best of the series. The addition of the Emblem Rings which bring heroes of the past games is a nice touch. However, the decision of removing so many great features that were in Theee House, makes Engage a weaker title in my opinion.

Marvel's Midnight Sun manages to offer a more dynamic version of the other Firaxis productions. We find most of our favorite heroes in addition to having the possibility to create our own protagonist. The fights offer some real spectacular moments. The main problem of the title concerns the dead time between missions. The dialogues are far too numerous and often not very interesting. Exploring the Abbey is more of a chore than anything else while the secrets are just another text to read. The pace of the game is very uneven even if on the whole you have a good time. The title doesn't seem to know what to do.

The Callisto Protocol is a nice surprise that certainly honors the series it was inspired from. Close quarter combat adds a unique gameplay element that really nurtures the horror and survival side. Striking Distance Studios offers us a balanced experience with the right level of action and horror that replicates the 2nd Dead Space perfectly. At last, the game is wrapped in a visual presentation that can't shy away from any AAA games. Apart from small problems with a few misplace saves, the experience is excellent. I'm already looking forward to the sequel.

There is no need to say, Need for Speed Unbound is not perfect, but it comes close to the good games of the license. The studio Criterion Games has done a good job in offering an art direction that stands out from the competition. The return of full vehicle customization is also very pleasing as the title has a nice list of cars. Nevertheless, the extremely repetitive nature of the events, the uninteresting multiplayer mode and the inconsistent gameplay do not allow the game to rise very high. Hopefully, this half-hearted success will allow the license to come back in force in the near future.

The port of Sackboy: A Big Adventure was made by the studio Sumo Digital, which is also the creator of the original version. Overall, the title takes the same content as before, but allows PC gamers to catch up, especially with the distribution of many costumes to customize its experience. Compatible with the Dualsense of the PS5, this version offers the highest experience. Despite some slowdowns, especially when using certain technologies such as Ray-Tracing, most of the bugs from the launch have been corrected by the developers. The PC version of Sackboy: A Big Adventure allows many players to discover this colorful and ingenious title that can be played solo or in teams.

In the end, Insomniac did well to capitalize on the success of Miles Morales in the movies. We are dealing here with a more concise and engaging adventure than the one featuring Peter Parker. It may be that the same activities are repeated mission after mission, but the sense of freedom that comes from swinging between skyscrapers alone is worth it. We also appreciate the developers' restraint in the side quests and tasks by avoiding trivia. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is, in other words, excellent entertainment that deserves to be played for the first or second time.

There is not much to say about Prison Tycoon Under New Management. The title developed by the team at Abylight Studios offers a management experience similar to what is already on the market. While prisoner rehabilitation is an excellent feature, it doesn't seem to be taken to its fullest extent. I wish the developers would have fully embraced their ideas to the fullest. The construction of our prison is also limited while the art direction is already aging. The game unfortunately doesn't reach its goal of being better than the franchise it is based on.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ship Of Fools
Nov 25, 2022

What Fika Production has achieved with Ship of Fools is far from obvious, namely to reinvent itself in a genre that has taken a lot of space in the last few years. The game will catch you by its presentation as well as its frenzied rhythm during the games. If you can play it with two people, it's even better. But the adventure itself is worth the effort if you like roguelike games. And that's good because I love it. If that's the case for you, there's no reason not to fall in love with Ship of Fools!

Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet bring some interesting new innovations such as a complete open world and a fun new Let’s Go! mechanic that speeds up fighting. The fact that you can now tale multiple paths really helps to diversify gameplay and the narrative behind is the best the series has to offer. Unfortunately, some technical issues such as texture problems and Pokémons that load too slowly in the open world will irritate players.

6 / 10.0 - Somerville
Nov 15, 2022

Somerville is more of an interactive film than a narrative game. Unfortunately, the game's superb presentation fails to take away the impression that it could have been so much more. We would have liked for the devs to deepen the game mechanics, for the different members of the family to be used for gameplay purposes, for the player to have more opportunities to express his uniqueness, but above all for the rhythm of the game to be better balanced.

8 / 10.0 - Pentiment
Nov 14, 2022

Pentiment is definitely not going to appeal to everyone and that's okay because Game Pass is made for those games. If you get through the slow start, you will discover a captivating murder mystery. Although it is very different from other Obsidian titles, you recognize the signature of the studio with its highly developed characters. And, of course, you can easily get lost with the many secondary elements in this very detailed universe. I especially loved the unique looks of the game that goes as deep as 16th century calligraphy which is very impressive. The game isn't without its flaws, but fans of a good narrative will love it.

7 / 10.0 - PGA Tour 2K23
Nov 13, 2022

If the gameplay is as complete as ever, the presence of the official licenses or the successful integration of the course creator, PGA Tour 2K23 remains very similar to the last opus. The HB Studios team has always had good ideas to offer new features, but I think that there are too few of them this time. Moreover, apart from the career mode, the remaining game modes are quite anecdotal. The presence of microtransactions that improve our character's skills totally unbalances the online matches. If you are looking for a complete golf experience, the title remains the reference in the field. However, if you already have the 2021 edition, there may be no need to pay for it.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn pays an excellent tribute to a game that is seen as a reference of the genre. Square Enix found ways to make its title more approachable which is great for newcomers. Although the fights can be very long, the game remains to this day one of the best TRPG. Yes, they could've done a lot more, but it's already a big step in the right direction.

Dragon Ball: The Breakers is a big dissapointment for me. It was difficult to go back and play it regularly for the purpose of the review. Nevertheless, I think some fans of the franchise will appreciate the new concept that it brings. Just don't expect something as exceptionnal as the last Kakarot game or FighterZ.

7 / 10.0 - NHL 23
Nov 7, 2022

I don't believe NHL 23 is the must-have annual edition that hockey fans absolutely need. Without diminishing the importance of the addition of women to the game, there's too little other new features. Furthermore, there's a lot of little annoyances that undermine the experience.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 returns the series to its former glory. I pretty much disliked Vanguard, but this one does much better. We totally understand why the community is so passionate and critical about this new release. After all, Activision delivers bestsellers year after year and, in our opinion, this one will be no exception.

Them's Fightin' Herds is an honest to goodness experience with its own visual identity. If you are looking for a title of the genre that is sold at a low price, but that offers a complete fighting system, the game is probably for you. Nevertheless, the low number of characters, the uninteresting story and the generous hitboxes are to be noted. Overall, the experience offered by Mane6 is quite respectable despite a few things that need to be fixed. The developers also plan to add more content later on via a seasonal subscription.
