Disco Elysium : The Final Cut adds a lot of elements to its arsenal at the same time as it lands on PlayStation and Stadia. It is a masterpiece that should be played by all fans of RPGs. Entertaining and captivating is how I would summarize my trip to Elysium. I'll be back, for sure.

10 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Mar 29, 2022

I can't praise Elden Ring enough. However, beyond the praise, you should know that Elden Ring is probably the best game I've had the chance to play, nothing less. Yes I know, we will have to take a step back in order to weigh the words well in the coming months, even the next few years. What we can say with certainty is that Elden Ring and FromSoftware have just set the bar very high for games of the genre. We talk about Elden Ring as we have talked about Super Mario 64, Metal Gear Solid or Half-Life through the years. This is the apotheosis of “Souls-like” and who knows, maybe an “Elden-like” genre has just emerged. The game is just that good.

Resident Evil Village is a melting pot of many ideas taken from previous Resident Evil with a really captivating scenario. Capcom really mastered the atmosphere of the game which adapts itselfs perfectly according to the situation the player is facing while making us umcomfortable as if something was always watching. We can't help but take pity on the poor Ethan who's involved in all of this despite him. I think this is an enormous success that continues what Resident Evil 7 had done to refresh the franchise and we're looking forward to what's ahead.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart mixes heart and humour in a very action driven adventure beautifully modernized for the new generation. The gameplay will completely engage you with a collection of very diversified weapons and well executed plateforming elements. If you were waiting for a system seller, this is the one. It uses the DualSense fully with haptic feedback and the adaptative triggers as well as the 3D Audio which put together truly give the feeling of a next-gen experience. It will definitely be amongs your favorite games of the year.

The Director's Cut of Death Stranding is one of the most beautiful PS5 games to date. A lot of the magic comes directly from the DualSense which adds a lot to the immersion especially with the haptic feedback. There might not be a long of new elements and asking for a premium to upgrade the original version does seem a bit greedy, but it's still a must for every PS5 owner that never played the original.

9.5 / 10.0 - Metroid Dread
Oct 12, 2021

Metroid Dread dives us in a long awaited sequel which does not dissapoint. I really enjoyed the pace of the action which connects bosses quickly with a good level of difficulty. Despite the many Metroidvania that have been released in recent years, the original series is still kind in 2021. Nintendo is taking the series in the right direction and I can't wait to dive into Metroid Prime 4.

9.5 / 10.0 - Deathloop
Sep 28, 2021

Arkane Studios has succeeded in creating a game that features a mix of several genres. Its a shooter, rogue-like, investigation game with RPG elements and it excel in each. The balance between all of those is truly a masterstroke that players will love.

9.5 / 10.0 - Halo Infinite
Dec 6, 2021

It feels good to find Master Chief in an episode that lives up to expectations with a deeper story and a universe bigger than ever. Above all, as a shooter, Halo Infinite is expertly executed and pushes the boundaries of the series in the right direction. In my opinion, the game has a lot to offer fans of the series and hopefully it will open new door to spawn a whole new generation of Halo fans.

9.5 / 10.0 - God of War
Jan 19, 2022

The PC version of God of War meets the main criteria for a successful port with compatibility with the latest technologies, the use of the peripheral of our choice or the possibility of increasing our immersion with ultra-wide screens in 21: 9. During my test, I did not have any particular technical problem or bug strictly speaking. If, according to the developers, this version of the game offers true 4K resolution, there are still textures that are a little blurrier than the others. Nothing too bad and it does not spoil the experience at all. The most positive point of the PC port of this adventure with Kratos is the fluidity that the latter possesses by allowing the user to completely unlock the frame rate.

Once again, we got to spend quality time with Aloy. Guerilla Games has crafted another gem in the franchise with Horizon Forbidden West. Fans of the first title will not be disappointed at all. Several annoying points have been corrected in this new chapter. Whether it's the more interesting side quests, the management of our inventory or even the level of difficulty, the result is fantastic.

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.

9.5 / 10.0 - Immortality
Aug 30, 2022

Immortality is an experience in itself. The game is hugely ambitious, but manages to deliver on every level. You will be on the tip of your toes for many hours trying to discover the fate of Marissa Marcel. Immortality is a total success. I guarantee you will be surprised by what you discover throughout the story reels.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury offers much more than your regular Switch port with a brand new adventure that packs between 5 and 8 hours of great new original content. I loved my time spent in this new open world of Bowser's Fury and going through 3D World a second time sure was a blast. Hopefully, this new package gives the game the second life that it truly deserves.

With an undeniably charming visual, a captivating story and complex gameplay, Bravely Default II is a great JRPG. Despite a few slowdowns, BD2 should satisfy veterans of the genre with its great soundtrack and high level of difficulty. It might not be a game for newcomers, but Claytechworks managed to bring the franchise to the next level without forgetting the essence of what made it great.

9 / 10.0 - Returnal
Apr 29, 2021

Though it might not he exactly what Housemarque got us used to, Returnal offers an excellent experience. It's a very difficult 3rd person roguelike that can be frustrating at times, but will also come up as greatly gratifying. When we figure out what to expect, we let ourselves be taken by the intriguing atmosphere and the decisions we have to take to survive. Housemarque did it once again.

Trails of Cold Steel IV marks the conclusion of a huge saga of four games that delivered a lot of emotions. The only way to evaluate the 4th title and final title of a series is to look at the collection as a whole and at the path that brought us to the ending. With that said, we can conclude that Nihon Falcom did an almost flawless job with a story that will stay in my mind for many years.

Another indie game that could've easily flown under the radar, Curse of the Dead Gods is a whole lot of fun. Greatly inspired by games like Hades, Dead Cells or Darkest Dungeon, it still managers to shine amongs the roguelites. A very good game early in 2021.

The interpretation done by Eidos Montreal of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy came as a really nice surprise to me. I devoured every moment thanks to its endearing characters, the depth of the script and a good level of humour that put a constant smile on my face. Eidos proves once again that there is room for high budget linear games that are played solo. I had my fears like everyone else, but I came out very satisfied and can't wait to go back and redo some of my choices.

9 / 10.0 - Far Cry 6
Oct 6, 2021

This is one of the best Far Cry of the past few years. By selecting the Far Cry 3's tropical environment combined with the lighter elements of the previous game, Ubisoft hits a home-run. If it was not for the limitations of the graphical engine, the game would've taken us to new highs. Fans of the series will love Far Cry 6 while neophytes will be hooked to the series.
