    Let's be clear: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore isn't a game for all. Its gameplay, very close to Shin Megami Tensei, is rather complete and interesting enough to catch the Japanese RPG lover in you. The nature of its scenario and the themes it explores may surprise you. Approaching J-Pop without complex, #FE goes completely wild with a sharp universe and a story so absurd that they end up generating more awkward laughs than empathy: if Japanese culture isn't your thing, move on. On the other hand, if you've always dreamed of saving humanity with your idol talents, you can go for it without hesitation.

    The port was well done, and there's almost nothing to complain about. It's not a big surprise, but Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a fantastic expansion finally available on PC, which should provide you with a much better gaming experience than the console versions, as long as you have an SSD-equipped machine that's up to the task. For a game that sometimes overly encourages you to go back and forth between zones, this is no small feat. If you liked the basic MHW, you'll love Iceborne. If you're new to the game, this is a good opportunity to test the license, as it now includes a massive amount of content.

    With Budget Cuts 2 - Mission Insolvency, Neat Corporation corrects many of the points criticized in the first opus such as bugs, loading times or very infrequent check points, and adds some diversity in the settings. Stealth remains fortunately the core of the game, and the translocator is still great, but we regret that free movement hasn't been added. As for the bow, it works, but would benefit from a more relevant focus. Unfortunately, we still don't have a body and there are some clipping effects in the portals. However, even if some details can still be improved, Budget Cuts 2 provides a good sequel and consolidates a license that could last.

    Paranoia - Happiness is Mandatory is not a bad game per se. The dystopic universe derived from the tabletop role-playing game is on the contrary rather attractive, even if we lose the multiplayer dimension. But the cynical humor isn't enough to fill simplistic and repetitive graphics as well as a gameplay lacking in action and essentially revolving around the many lines of dialogue.Paranoia - Happiness is Mandatory is not a bad game per se.

    The surprise element is no longer present for this second opus of the Builders series, but thanks to a huge stack of fine new features, it once again manages to hit the mark by offering a more scripted and structured alternative to Minecraft. Very generous and particularly catchy once caught in the spiral of basic construction, DQB2 remains an excessively talkative title that can occasionally get on your nerves if your only desire is to build, over and over again.

    The port of Civilization VI on PS4 and Xbox One is clean and meets our expectations. It's beautiful, and the functionalities, as well as the interface, are quick and easy to handle. The performances are close to those on PC, as long as you're not too demanding. The real problem lies mainly in long loading times, but you should not get them often. The extensions are sold separately and thus the price is too high, which is regrettable given the game was released 3 years ago. For those who don't have a decent PC, however, this is a good opportunity to get into this excellent title, or simply to discover the under-represented genre on consoles. You'll spend hundreds of hours playing, solo or multi, without even realizing it.

    Phoenix Point stumbles and fails its release, which has obviously been rushed. Although it's currently full of bugs and balance issues on many levels, the game has great potential that will eventually shine and make it a game of choice for aficionados of the genre. The gameplay is ambitious and deep, with a combat and management system that can be very satisfying. In addition, the diplomacy feature is a rare strength, even if the current content doesn't encourage you to take full advantage of it yet. We advise you to wait a little before buying Phoenix, as it will most likely be improved soon.

    Wolves is wrapping up this season beautifully. The artistic direction is still as charming as ever, as is the soundtrack, which takes us away despite some overlapping dialogues and some freezes. The confined spaces have issues in terms of selecting items, and the title emphasizes on the show more than usual, at the expense of the player's involvement, as he turns into a spectator. Nevertheless, it plays so well with our feelings and emotions that we let ourselves be carried away without any problem.

    With good intentions and interesting ideas, Espire 1 - VR Operative unfortunately doesn't live up to all its ambitions. If the voice control is effective and the gadgets appreciable, the enemies' AI is quite limited and the disturbingly easy fights are not worth being sneaky. Fortunately, the world leaderboard is there to remind us that the goal of the game is to be stealthy. The Control Theatre, on the other hand, has turned out to be disappointing and will probably be deactivated. If we appreciated the possibility of playing seated, the graphics are too bland and the collision system can be improved. At the end of the day, we get the impression that the developers lacked time and/or resources, and it's a shame.

    Last Labyrinth is undeniably original. Sure, you need Katia to do the job for you, some puzzles lack rhythm, but Amata's rather bold approach hits the mark. It will certainly not please everyone as the story remains quite vague and diluted in the multiple paths that are proposed to us. The atmosphere, however, is effective, and the characters are quite remarkable. We enjoyed solving complex puzzles, and as long as you don't get discouraged too quickly, you're going to like failing to be able to witness the various deaths that the developers have created for you.

    Asterix & Obelix XXL3: the Crystal Menhir, invites you to experience a brand new story of the two Gauls. In it, we can find what makes the soul of our heroes' adventures: travelling and slapping Romans. On this aspect, the contract is fulfilled. Each level has a different atmosphere, and the graphics add to the feeling of seeing a comic strip come to life. The sound effects and the dubbing also play a major part in the immersion. However, even if the combat phases are rather intense, the repetition of exploration/camps is tiring in the long run and we are eager to move forward. Fortunately, the co-op mode, even if not flawless, manages to reinvigorate the title. You will quickly forget the storyline and have fun, as long as you play with a friend, and a controller.

    Fans of the series will appreciate to rediscover the characters and universe of Narcos, as the game will remind them of the events and places of the first season. The graphics are good, provided that you don't get too close and don't mind about strange camera angles. The targeting can sometimes be problematic, but the strategic aspect and the third person real-time actions are quite effective. We liked being able to switch sides between Narcos and D.E.A but, unfortunately, the game is too repetitive.

    Pokémon Sword and Shield provides new sensations even for the most experienced trainers who have finished all versions. New Pokémon, new features, breathtaking graphics and music... Game Freak is offering us a complete renewal of its emblematic license. If a few details need to be reviewed, if the game remains a little simple and the scenario leaves us a little hungry, there is no doubt that the developer is now offering us the first game of a long series for Nintendo Switch.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order could have been a good, short, but intense action game, lasting about ten hours, but instead, it swallows the player in unnecessary back and forths, artificial obstacles, puzzles and chests hunts, which burden the rhythm and fun. We come out all the more frustrated by a predictable story that goes nowhere, as well as by its combat system very close to Sekiro's, but which is far from reaching its level of refinement and control, especially on the bosses.

    When you look at the big picture, Sparklite seems to be a very good game, and it is. The original concept of a Roguelike with a important hub, as in Moonlighter, is well used. It's flawless both technically and gameplay wise, and there's even some exploration. So what more could you ask for? Well, a story that would hold a little more ground, and above all, more content. You're going to have fun on Sparklite, it's inevitable. However, this will not last long and replayability is very low. So given the price, you may want to wait for sales or additional content to let yourself be seduced by this enchanting title.

    If NFS Heat won't be able to convince with its overly easy gameplay, as well as an almost indestructible vehicle capable of shattering everything, others will be satisfied with the simple pleasure of repeated slide-downs and the sensation of speed, ignoring the simplistic side of the game. The graphics could have been better, but the rendering is quite pleasant, especially in motion. There is a whole range of vehicles and a neat soundtrack as well as extensive customization, all without loot boxes. The two sides of the game, day and night, have been successfully implemented and alternate nicely, especially since it's possible to play with the police in urban races once again.

    In terms of true adaptation, Blacksad: Under the Skin is quite successful. The story is gripping and well written, with colorful characters, especially thanks to the voice-over and jazzy soundtrack. But in terms of gaming, the gameplay is heavy, the setting is sad, the glitches unbearable and the investigation mechanics too linear, making us want to watch what seems to be a better feature film than a good game experience. This adventure, although full of choices, treats you like a spectator.

    Like other large PC ports before it, Red Dead Redemption 2 suffers from some optimization and stability problems. However, once these problems are resolved, it will undoubtedly become one of the best games in years. The improved gaming experience, the comfort on PC and the graphic enhancement of a game that was already beautiful, contribute to make it an absolute must-have.

    Let's Sing 2020 remains quite conventional conceptually, but the new multiplayer mode Let's Party manages to spice up the gameplay a little and make this French and International Hits version a real karaoke game. Whether you play alone, in a duo or with multiple friends, fun is the word. However, be careful to be in tune if you want to get the best scores. The real asset of Let's Sing? You can play with or without a microphone, by downloading a simple application on your smartphone.

    Without proposing any incredible new features, this title is a successful port, adapted to the Switch's requirements. It is pleasant to (re)discover it, with improved graphics that help dynamise the investigations. Available at an honest price, Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy is a good way to get into the license. Those who have not yet solved the mysteries of the 3DS version will certainly enjoy it.

    Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is a solid, although not revolutionary, party game. Its wide selection of events, its clean technique and its various types of gameplay, all very accessible, make it an ideal companion for a few successful evenings with friends or family. The real added value of this opus, the solo mode, is however a good idea poorly exploited, due to a excess of inconsistent dialogues, which break the rhythm and all the interest of this charming initiative.

    Frontier succeeds in doing what we all wanted with Planet Zoo: to offer Planet Coaster's freedom of expression and creation, paired with a worthwhile management game. Icing on the cake, they also bring a game full of caring messages and pro-animal activism, contrasted with a cold observation about the capitalism involved in the animal rehabilitation. Despite some problems related to the construction or the interface, it's beautiful, it's complete, and we can spend dozens of hours perfecting our park or taking care of the sad little fur balls.

    Journey for Elysium offers us an enchanting getaway to the land of the dead with a very accomplished graphic style. The title provides an opportunity to use very immersive paddling and climbing techniques. However, the absence of room scale unfortunately affects the final result, as does the lack of a real challenge and the shortness of the adventure.

    Moons of Madness manages, through the atmosphere it creates and its soundtrack, to effectively convey the oppressive isolation of this team stranded on the red star and facing paranormal phenomenons where dreams mix with reality. The graphics, although not the sharpest, are well made. However, it doesn't really give us any freedom in terms of exploration and rarely manages to startle us. And for those looking for a fight, it's essentially a puzzle-game that shows in variety what it lacks in challenge.

    The Switch version of Resident Evil 5 is quite a surprise. Indeed, based on the console versions released in 2016, it has nothing to be ashamed in terms of graphics and suffers no slowdown. Very complete, it also comes with the two scripted extensions as well as the Arena and online multiplayer modes. We can however blame it for its very dated gameplay. It's heavy, it's slow and it's not maneuverable. The gyroscopic aim set up by the Day One patch remains fun at first but is really not practical. The local co-op is still as nice as ever, but it needs to be tested on a TV and with two controllers, as the Joy-Con doesn't allow all kinds of movements, especially the camera ones.

    In the end, Sea Salt seems to be a passable title but it is not the case. As it stands, the game is very flawed. It's a pity because everything that shapes the game is almost perfect, and the atmosphere will make you want to stay. Basically, it would only take a change in the way you control the units, as well as rebalancing some enemies, to make the game very enjoyable. That said, for patient players, who are not afraid of being salty, you should take a look at this very promising game.

    At the end of the Death Stranding adventure, after playing nearly 60 hours, it's hard not to be convinced that a new step has been taken for our beloved media. It's also hard not to see in it the culmination of Hideo Kojima's work, with a title that merges gameplay, screenplay and staging in a coherent universe full of video game and cinematographic references. A true love letter to video games and those who play them, Death Stranding is a complete game, sometimes clumsy, but that has undoubtedly left its mark on us.
