    Ghost Trick is a fantastic adventure / puzzle game, and its iOS version doesn't lose any of its strengths next to the original DS version. This is a must-have, perfectly suited to the touch interface, and what's more : the two first chapters are free, the rest can be purchased in-app if you want to finish the story, manipulating the hhost of the hero to possess objects and change the destiny of the other characters of this well-crafted story.

    Uncharted 3 has but one shortcoming: it's where we wanted it to be. To an exhilarating solo adventure, even though it's less surprising and a tiny bit less well-paced than the second episode, add in a gorgeous multiplayer offer that's well-crafted and well thought-out. Drake and his friends take us on a marvelous journey once more, but the formula may have found its own limits with this third episode, at least on this generation of machines.

    Even though there are some mistakes here and there (let's say it's youth related), F1 2010 probably remains one of the best F1 racing games ever. It's reminiscent of the old Formula One on the original PlayStation, and even better, of the legendary F1 '97. But a thousand times more comprehensive and realistic. Its career mode grants it an enormous playtime expectancy, and racing over the internet or against the clock is a delight best served with long evenings to fully enjoy it. Well, that's it : F1 2010... what else ?

    Anticipation for Dead Space 2 was especially high. It could have gone to the dark side, forgetting about those moments when the tension rises... and nothing is clearly shown. But for the best, it was able to keep its soul intact. And by raising the bar in all aspects (production values, horror, pace), it appears as the definitive master of the survival/horror genre.

    Forza 4 is back in good shape with more content than ever before and many new features, including Kinect integration for the fun, the Autovista mode for car lovers, the Rival mode for competition, and much more... but we will first remember its technical performance (the game looks great and runs continuously at 60 fps) and its superb gameplay, which provides renewed physics for exceptional driving sensations. We can forgive its few flaws and raise our thumbs up: it is impossible to miss it if you're a fan of racing games.

    Cut the Rope is the perfect iPhone game. Smart, easy to pick up and play in short sessions, and blessed with a sublime level design and brilliant physics-based gameplay mechanic. Don't miss it.

    Firaxis succeeded. Easy to handle even for the newcomer, but still as rich as ever with multiple gameplay systems to play with, Civilization V will easily seduce the strategy-savvy. The lack of religions will maybe be covered in a future expansion, but even as is, it's a must-have in the genre. Plan your sleepless nights far ahead, and get a recent enough PC to handle it. Yup : this, too, is called evolution.

    Motorstorm Apocalypse is almost an entirely new game compared to the previous installments. Richer, more innovative, it will warm arcade-style racing games amateurs with spectacular trials, and immediate fun. Full of content and replay value, with cool local and online multiplayer, it's by far the best of the series.

    Not only does Splatoon add a much-needed touch of color to TPS, but the inspired use of ink redraws the genre's lines altogether, transforming the GamePad into an fantastic tool to brush the different layers of the gameplay so that everyone will always feel like applying another coat of paint.

    The remastering prowess of Grezzo not only reminds, but also transfigures, the visionary design of Majora's Mask, so it's high time to (re)discover this darker face of Zelda.

    Although this remastered version might only be seen as a technical improvement, Gravity Rush appears even more accomplished on PS4, both from an artistic or a gameplay perspective. That won't completely compensate for the quiet loss of the second episode on PS Vita, nor justify the abandon of the portable console altogether, but it's a joy to contemplate Kat's quest going on in such a magnificent way.

    The story and the world of Xenoblade Chronicles X are both truly massive, as if they gathered all Tetsuya Takahashi's distinct influences. But Monolith Soft still managed to balance the narrative with the gameplay, while upgrading its mechanics. Hence the addition of Skells transcends combat and exploration through a large scale quest that can be freely accomplished alone, or with other pioneers. An inspired, yet original and definitely modern J-RPG.

    Football Manager 2017 managed to do better than last year by improving its playing style while keeping its DNA. Richer, more beautiful and more deep, it continues to be the benchmark of sports management games.

    The story of Nilin lasts maybe 10 hours, but will endure past the end credits. There are some shortcomings in terms of gameplay, indeed, but its storytelling, brilliant art direction, and impeccable, yet frightening vision of the future will most definitely remain branded in your memory for years to come.

    After the revolutionary three-dimensional conversion of Picross, this cozy touch of color only appears as an evolution. But despite a slight yet inevitable complication of the controls, such a smoothly rounded addition allows much more elaborated puzzles. Considering the massive challenge revealed slowly and surely through this fantastic collection of intriguing books, Picross 3D : Round 2 is definitely a new heavyweight champion among mindbrawlers.

    Overwatch is a great multiplayer game with an amazing artistic direction. Each hero truly feels special, and it is very rewarding to play with each and every one of them. It feels like the fun will never end. A solid contender for 2016's Best Video Game of the Year.

    Probably one of the best platforms to enjoy the addictive and singular Hotline Miami. It plays very well thanks to the dual sticks, the touche screen adds targeting options, and the crisp screen of the Vita allows for a perfect rendering of this flashy, pixelated universe. Seeing as it is crossbuy as well (PS3/Vita), it's a no-brainer.

    Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition offers a sublime RPG experience to our consoles. The universe is even more immersive thanks to the many new, clearer interface and intelligent gameplay mechanics. The combat system is also very ingenious. A must have if you like the genre.

    With the hugely popular Angry Birds, and the unique Sword and Sworcery, Jetpack Joyride forms up the tryptic of the smartphone/tablet typical must-have games. It's pure action, through a single move : touching the screen to control the Jetpack, and survive the randomly generated traps as long as possible. It's highly addictive, filled with nice bonuses to unlock and blessed with a very nice artistic touch, typically referencing the video game world... just grab it!

    Fez
    Fez may not be as polished as its pairs, the Limbos and the Braids, but it's the indie gem we were expecting it to be. It's an ode to 8bit clich├ęs for sure, but also a puzzler that will appeal to all the thinkers and explorers alike, filled with cuteness, an awesome soundtrack and atmosphere, and quite a load of secrets to uncover.

    If you enjoy hack'n slash and want to spend a few evenings with good friends on Blizzard's title, this Reaper of Souls version is an excellent choice. You can have all the content from the original game and its expansion, plus high quality graphics to boot.

    Rather than dying out while burning only through its ardent fans' hearts, Fire Emblem's flame spread by letting the players decide the temperature of the challenge, without cooling down its blazing gameplay. On the contrary, it even flared up with the intensified support system, the inflamming bonds created between the warriors and the warm wireless options, although just missing online battles to shine forever.

    This WipEout 2048 is a true technology feat. Visually sublime, fast as hell, it's a comprehensive game as well. If the 3 seasons of the solo campaign will not challenge much until the last races, they will make a good training for the enhanced strategic elements, before heading into the multiplayer campaign. A splendid title, perfect for nomad play.

    Fallout 4 has some flaws. But it gives to fans of the series and of Bethesda's RPG exactly what they want and need: an overwhelming open world in an outstanding universe, with great tools to progress and great freedom of choice. Very pleasant, very difficult to resist and very very time-consuming.

    ACR has its shortcomings, but they're nothing compared to the pleasure this title delivers. Large, more polished and varied, quite pretty and offering an adventure and a story more enticing than ever, the solo play doesn't disappoint, even though it's still based on the same tricks and elements established a few episodes ago. It may be time to alter the formula. Ben even so, the multiplayer has been refined, all the while becoming more accessible. Overall, it's an action-adventure must-have.

    Like an arrow, local multiplayer cannot reach people further than the neighborhood, but that doesn't make it inefficient, particularly through close combat. Hence Towerfall Ascension proves how powerful archery can be, provided that it relies on a masterful execution and a sizeable army. With such a large choice of weapons and a clever use of terrain, the most desperate situations can be overcome, even alone. Thanks to warlord Matt Thorson - the creator of this amazing battle alchemy - here's a great reason to renew local rivalries and appreciate all kinds of human relations, friendly or not.
