Geeks & Com's Reviews

Jul 29, 2022

PowerWash Simulator is a very accomplished game despite its rather limited concept. The handling is easy to take in hand and the cooperative mode adds a bit of fun. The content is quite imposing and this is sometimes a flaw. Many missions will take more than an hour to complete. For me, the title is a relaxing game that can be played in small doses here and there. If content updates are planned, I would have liked to go a little further in the concept with why not much more powerful tools. If you're a fan of this kind of game, you'll clearly enjoy cleaning everything. For the neophytes, the game quickly becomes repetitive despite the diversity of places to clean.

8.5 / 10.0 - As Dusk Falls
Jul 28, 2022

With its very engaging story that offers so many choices, As Dusk Falls is an amazing addition to the Xbox Game Pass that fans of the genre really can’t miss.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 delivers an epic journey with great characters, an amazing story and refined combats that make it the greatest of the series. You will lose dozens of hours exploring its humongous world and despite too many long loading screens in the second half of the game, it's definitely a Nintendo Switch must play.

8 / 10.0 - Live A Live
Jul 21, 2022

LIVE A LIVE is a great adventure that still holds up 28 years later. With its 8 very different stories, the game delivers a wide variety of still very original gameplay. Despite offering 2 or 3 scenarios that aren't as interesting as the others, it makes up with a well-balanced rhythm of story and gameplay. In the end, it's relatively short compared to other Tactical RPGs which, in my opinion, make the genre more accessible to newcomers.

8 / 10.0 - F1 22
Jul 15, 2022

Despite some promises from the Codemasters team, F1 22 seems to suffer from the same problems as the other games published by EA Sports. The game brings a little more immersion with supercars for example, but these are really anecdotal. Once again, some of the F2 championship data is not yet up to date and you'll have to be patient. Not to mention the technical problems that are much more present than before. Fortunately, the driving sensations remain the same with an improved artificial intelligence. We should not forget the numerous accessibility options to have fun, no matter what your level is. There is also virtual reality compatibility, which offers the ultimate experience for owners of this type of device. Visually, the title is also well done. If you own last year's edition, you shouldn't really expect any big changes. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

7.5 / 10.0 - MADiSON
Jul 14, 2022

I really liked MADiSON. Despite some frustrations with the lighting and certain portions of the game, this one is very well done. The story that we discover through newspaper clippings, audio cassettes or flashbacks is captivating. For my part, I wanted to continue to know the rest of the story even if I had been stuck at the same point for an hour. The puzzles generated with each new game force you to understand the solution well especially if you want to redo the game. If the developers fix the technical problems and the one big bug on PlayStation, MADiSON will be a must in terms of psychological horror. My rating did not take this last issue into consideration.

If you are a fan of Danganronpa, the Zero Escape series or any narrative thriller, AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES – nirvanA Initiative is for you. If the first one left me a bit confused, the second game is better structured, captivating and very well written. Furthermore, you don't really need to play the previous game to jump into this one so enjoy and discover the many paths that will lead you to the conclusion of this amazing sci-fi story.

8 / 10.0 - Moss: Book II
Jul 3, 2022

After a very successful first book, we are more than happy to find our little mouse for a new adventure. Keeping the basics that made the first game a success, Moss: Book 2 takes us even further. We quickly see that Polyarc has made the most of PSVR and that it is undoubtedly one of the last good titles on the platform before its future iteration. I hope the studio will continu its great work during Sony's PSVR2 era, because they've proven once again that they're the best at it. It's an absolute must-have for any holder of the virtual reality headset. As long as you still have a PS4 controller if you play on PS5.

Fobia - St. Dinfna Hotel isn't a perfect game, but it is extremely satisfying. The game focuses above all on the atmosphere and the puzzles while the monsters look like were added without much thought. Without any guide, it will take you about ten hours to overcome the secret of St. Dinfna. If you like action games, you won't like your experience here. On the other hand, if you love to explore at a slow place to discover all its mysteries through puzzles and secret passages, Fobia will keep you spellbound.

While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge isn't perfect, especially when it comes to online multiplayer and the amount of content, it is a very good game. For the price, you won't be disappointed. Plus, it's a really great local multiplayer title where 4 to 6 players (depending on the platform) can play simultaneously. Older players will appreciate the nostalgic feel throughout the title. Younger players will find endearing heroes in a high quality beat them up.

7 / 10.0 - Oxide: Room 104
Jun 27, 2022

Oxide Room 104 is a good little horror game. The atmosphere put forward is perfectly successful and the puzzles are very logical. They will be particularly appreciated by fans of escape games who will see several similarities. There are some problems with texture reflections, but they do not spoil our experience. Oxide focuses primarily on puzzles and not fights. Despite the fact that there's isn't a wide range of diversity, the design of the monsters is very well thought out. If you want a game that's not too long and like horror and puzzles, this game is for you.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Quarry
Jun 22, 2022

The Quarry is clearly on a par with Until Dawn and reassures me after the disappointments I felt with the last games from Supermassive Games. The atmosphere is well integrated, the visual aspect is even nicer and the scenario as a whole remains interesting even if the last scenes seem a bit rushed. After talking to some of you on social networks, there are several endings available and the choices seem to have a real impact on many dialogues and cinematics. The cooperative mode also allows you to play with people who are perhaps a little less used to video games. However, it is important to remember that the in-game stages are rather anecdotal, that there are several inconsistencies in the storyline, that the game is sold at full price for a rather average lifespan and that it is rather frustrating to have no improvement to redo the story once again.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has proven to be my favorite game of the genre so far. I think the developers have capitalized well on the strengths of Musou while adding the best elements of the latest Fire Emblem. This is once again a long-term game that will offer dozens of hours of gameplay for fans of the genre. For newcomers, it can also be a great starter as it offers a lot of flexibility for difficulty levels and it explains very well each new element that they add along the way. In short, it is easy to recommend.

Mario Strikers: Battle League should easily meet the expectations of those who have been waiting for a sequel for a long time. The game is more fun than ever thanks to a more dynamic and perfectly fluid gameplay. It also takes a lot of practice to master it perfectly and the challenge is there even for veteran players. In short, Nintendo is starting the summer on the right track with this new Mario Strikers.

7 / 10.0 - Kao the Kangaroo
May 28, 2022

Kao the Kangaroo will not go down in history, I think you probably guessed it. We have to admit that it represents an interesting and still accessible challenge for people who are new to the genre. Your children could find it a lot of fun and it could prepare them to tackle little more fleshed out games. It's absolutely nothing mean-spirited towards Kao the Kangaroo but just like the other games in the series, it lacks something to elevate it to the level of the best games in the genre. Its lifespan of about 8 hours is more than reasonable and that's why it can be interesting for newer gamers.

6.5 / 10.0 - Evil Dead: The Game
May 25, 2022

Evil Dead: The Game offers a mixture of nostalgia and disappointment for fans of the franchise. On the one hand, there are countless references to the original films and the series, with highly recognizable settings, the voices of the actors from the series and an art direction that follows the same codes. On the other hand, we have a title that looks very similar to other games on the market, a progression system that is practically useless, a horrific atmosphere that disappears quickly, an obligation to play with friends to really enjoy the game and a mandatory internet connection even for solo missions. So, unfortunately, I can't recommend the title, unless you are a VERY big fan of the license and have several friends to play with. Fortunately, the title offers a shared progression system between platforms, but also cross-play. Hopefully, you won't go around in circles too soon!

Dinosaur Fossil Hunter had a huge playground at its disposal, but the developers at Pyramid Games studio seem to have run out of steam. While the basic gameplay is not totally bad and could be improved via future updates, the functionality to skip some of the important steps of playing a paleontologist and completely counterintuitive for a simulation game. In addition, the technical problems, performance and art direction that offer only the minimum of visual effects prevent the title from standing out in the market. Despite being marketed at a low price, we find ourselves doing the same thing over and over again without any novelty after only a few hours of play. The experience is far from being up to par and what we could expect after a rather successful demo several months ago. Let's hope that the development team fixes the technical issues quickly to try not to end up like the dinosaurs.

Nintendo Switch Sports is a good update to Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resorts even if it misses some sports like golf. This is a game that puts the technology of the Joy-Con to the front, which Nintendo hasn't necessarily done enough for my taste since the release of the Switch. However, I doubt that people will spend as much time with it as they did on the Wii given the cost of entry and the lack of content. On the other hand, if you are looking for a fun experience that will get the whole house moving, this is definitely a very good option.

7.5 / 10.0 - MLB The Show 22
Apr 20, 2022

MLB The Show 22 once again offers a complete experience for all baseball fans while making the sport increasingly accessible. Now available on Nintendo Switch, the title is now offered on almost all platforms and still integrates its shared progression systems. It is therefore possible to continue playing on any platform or to play against friends who own the game on a different platform. Since its release, the game has also been available via the Xbox Game Pass subscription, always with the aim of being as accessible as possible. Nevertheless, there are even fewer new features than last year. The gameplay is almost identical and the game modes haven't changed much, just like the visual identity. Not to mention that the game still doesn't offer any localization in other languages than English. A point that is, for me, unacceptable when the developers want to make the franchise as accessible as possible. If you already own the previous game, there is very little reason to buy this 2022 edition.

4.5 / 10.0 - Shredders
Apr 6, 2022

There is not much to say about Shredders, which is not a satisfying experience. The art direction is already aging when the game is released, the animations are not very good, the missions are only sequences of courses via teleportations and the cinematics of the scenario seem to be present only to extend the life of the title. Making a successful sports and simulation game is not an easy task and I have the impression that for the first project of the FoamPunch studio it was perhaps too ambitious. If you want to make up your mind, I strongly advise you to go through an Xbox Game Pass subscription rather than paying forty dollars.
