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.

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.

5.5 / 10.0 - Apex Legends
Apr 25, 2021

Apex Legends on Switch is one of the least successfull port of Panic Button Games. The studio had to do a lot of sacrifices to bring this free battle royal to the platform. The many technical issues and the fact that you can't transfer your save from another console, makes it tough to justify jumping on this version.

6 / 10.0 - Bus Simulator 21
Sep 29, 2021

I was still disappointed with this Bus Simulator 21 despite the addition of several new features and a diverse open world environment. The most important in this type of game is the driving, which unfortunately is not well reproduced without forgetting the many technical problems.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends dissapoints for a few reasons including the fact that players are not encouraged to take a stealth approach. Futhermore, the technical problems and the fact that you can't launch a game with a partner controled by the AI really hurts the experience. Let's hope that the additional content will be a bit more diversified.

6 / 10.0 - Biomutant
May 24, 2021

Biomutant is the equivalent of a book with a beautiful cover, but empty pages. The game offers a narration thats great at times, but gets also slowed by the narrator. Unfortunately, I quickly lost interest and its not for a lack of trying many times. I did have a few moments of fun, but I can't recommend this game for now.

Although there's a very repetitive nature to the game, it is a very good compliment to the movie. Its very accessible which is perfect for a young audience and the progression system is actually pretty good. Even though I don't think it will please the older generations, it should make your kids smile a lot.

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!

6.5 / 10.0 - Madden NFL 22
Sep 7, 2021

Madden NFL 22 disappoints on several levels whether it is for its gameplay which offers virtually no change since last year or even in its visual aspect which is not worthy of the new generation. Not to mention that the Face of the Franchise mode offers no real interest in low impact dialogue and poor quality cutscenes. If you already have last year's edition, this edition is clearly not necessary!

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.

Who Pressed Mute on Uncle Marcus? is a cool title that will keep you busy for a few hours. The plot is well put together and everything is explained if you manage to get the best ending. The fact that it's always the same poison and the same suspect will cause the majority of players to move on as soon as the right conclusion is found. Even though some evidences are obtained in a sort of unpredictable way, I had a lot of fun carrying out the investigation.

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.

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.

It's a narrative game from start to finish with very little interaction required of you. And when they do come, the various choices will not change the result at all. However, the story is intriguing and will keep you hooked until the end and the visual style is sublime. It would be nice to say a lot more about the game but in all honesty, there is not much to add. The game ends rather quickly (about 3 hours) and whether it's your time of game or not, is entirely up to you. As for me, I recommend it for fans of the genre.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is an ok game that must be viewed first and foremost as an intro to the much bigger project: Hundred Heroes. The cast of character is interesting, but the overall plot is a bit boring, and the side quests are uninspired. We mostly enjoyed the art and the fact that you can instantly switch between three characters in a unique way. If you like Japanese games and you have Game Pass, it's worth a shot. Otherwise, even though it comes from the same studio, don't expect this to be the great Suikoden spiritual successor that you are hoping for in their main Kickstarter project.

7 / 10.0 - Voyage
Aug 13, 2022

Voyage is a good little game that's worth discovering. The game aims to be a simple and relaxing experience in a very artistic settings. To that extent, we can say that it delivers. However, the simplicity is not for everyone and some players will not like this lack of challenge. Voyage is unfortunately very short and would have deserved other environments with other puzzles. I recommend you try it when you want to sit down, relax and not think too much.

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.

7 / 10.0 - Battlefield 2042
Dec 6, 2021

Battlefield 2042 is not the title that will revolutionize the franchise. The overall experience remains similar despite the addition of characters or natural disasters. If some features bring a little comfort to the gameplay, the sensations are the same as before. The absence of the single-player mode to put all of the energy of the DICE developers on multiplayer does not make it possible to focus on the proposed universe even if this decision undoubtedly made it possible to develop the excellent Portal mode which offers real diversity during clashes. Without forgetting that if on Xbox Series X I did not experience any particular technical problems, they are indeed present on the PC version which is still inconstant today and still contains huge bugs. Overall, I don't think this new Battlefield is the long-awaited opus by the community!

100 minigames and the five tables would have made a perfect addition to Super Mario Party as a DLC. Unfortunately, when you consider Mario Party Superstars on its own, it strikes me as too thin in content. Despite the excellent compilation of minigames, the rest doesn’t reach the Superstar status.In short, while I appreciate its nostalgic aspect, I would choose Super Mario Party before Mario Party Superstars.

The famous brand is back on our consoles and on PC with hundreds of cars. Hot Wheels Unleashed may not be perfect, especially in terms of its purchasing system or its redundancy in single-player mode, but it offers an accessible arcade experience that can appeal to nostalgic as well as to the youngest.
