    Even though it doesn't push a lot further its concept than the original, Inazuma Eleven 2 still is a very nice RPG with a cool soccer-based fantasy universe and a lot to do and play.

    No need to say more, this is the best basketball videogame of all time.

    The solo may not be revolutionary, but it remains solid; the production values are spotless, Battle.net was revised for added comfort, and it supports a multiplayer that could very well be described as a dangerous time-consuming wormhole you won't be able to escape. There's no denying it: StarCraft 2 remains the mother of all STR games.

    The surprise is there: even though we'd have thought that Far Cry 3 would have been a "crazy open world shooter". It is, but it goes far beyond that in its depiction of its main character: the island. It's generous, enticing, well-designed and well-crafted - the only less-interesting part being the multiplayer, even though there are some very nice ideas there as well.

    Journey is short. Too short. It's so brilliant, so magnificent, that you wish you could dive in its story and world for more discoveries, more wonder, more breathtaking poetry.

    Assassin's Creed III might not be as revolutionary in itself as the historical period it covers, and it still has some shortcomings that may annoy old timers of the series and newcomers alike, but its generosity, the unbelievably high quality of its writing, particularly the character of Connor, the political and societal questions it weaves into its Templar / Assassins storyline, and the overall generosity of its content more than make up for it. It may feel constricted inside our current hardware, but manages nonetheless to push back its limits, combining the proven formula with new gorgeous elements both in the solo and multiplayer aspects.

    Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator is a fantastic fighting game. It offers a very deep gameplay that you can learn and master via the excellent training mode, and gorgeous graphics and characters. Thumbs up.

    Football Manager has increased again in realism through pertinent adjustments. An essential for soccer's fans.

    Beautiful and complete, Pillars of Eternity is a captivating game mastered throughout. Despite a lot of text to read and lengthy load times, it stands out as one of the best RPGs of our time.

    A game which clearly delivers richness and varied pleasures. Granted, it's not perfect, especially from a purely technical standpoint, and it will probably not surprise as much as its illustrious ancestor did back in 2000, but its generosity, the excellence of its artistic direction and cyberpunk universe, supported by a sublime soundtrack, draw us right in for a long adventure from which it's very, very difficult to break free. I can't wait for a follow-up that could be freed from the constraints that clearly limited what the developers ambitionned to deliver originally... because Deus Ex Human Revolution still marks the return of true cyberpunk in videogames. Let's pray it doesn't leave us again for another 10 years.

    Even if its core gameplay and visuals look too similar to the first episode, Hotline Miami 2 is exactly what we could expect: a harder, better, faster, stronger chapter to the series, that feels more polished in terms of structure, violence, soundtrack and global madness. A generous, violent, and hypnotizing fun experience that action game fans should not miss, as it will surely give them the pain they want to feel.

    This is the reboot we were waiting for. Beautiful, clever, expertly paced, it's a superb blend of action, exploration and puzzle.

    It's already an artistic achievement to build such a unique, fabulous world out of paper, but some wizardry of design prowess is required to use this material's physical properties in order to craft such astounding gameplay mechanics, with the PlayStation Vita as the main magical tool. Tearaway ventures even further, since it exploits the bond established between the character and the player through a narrative process, their interactions blurring the lines of virtual reality at the same time. Whether it's made from digital or vegetal matter, paper is still a fundamental medium to express creativity. And that might just be the message sent by Media Molecule with this lovely letter.

    This fifth episode efficiently concludes a whole season that has just been constantly brilliant in terms of narrative and staging. A lot of surprises happen and lead to a final decision with potential consequences that will definitely help to remember this whole season of Life is Strange as a beautiful present from Dontnod to the players.

    Dark Souls 3 takes the best of each game to create a fantastic level design, great gameplay, superb artistic direction and great visuals. Already one of the best games of 2016.

    Unavoidable rendez-vous for the old-school games amateurs, the Xbox Live Arcade offers now a much justified remix of Guardian Heroes, odd mix between 2D brawler and RPG blessed by a iconic music score. Most developers would have failed, but Treasure prooves, 15 years later, that they stroke the right balance between a demanding technical approach and the pure visceral fun of beat'em all gameplay.

    Technically very close to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, Assassin's Creed III on the Wii U takes advantage of some interesting (but is not revolutionary) innovations. The map and the few commands on the GamePad screen are nice, as is the ability to play without TV, on the GamePad itself, but for the rest, the experience is the same and AC3 remains an excellent game.

    Last episode of a trilogy in which we admire the writing, art direction and themes, Mass Effect 3 is the grand finale that we all wanted to play. There may be some technical issues, the action phases could be more convincing, but still, Mass Effect 3 promises a great, emotional and epic galactic adventure. Already one of the best games of 2012.

    A real gem for fans of the Konoha ninja, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is rich, well-crafted, fun to play and as worthy of the series as ever.

    Luigi's Mansion 2 doesn't just bring back to life the original, it transcends it. Deeper gameplay, smart puzzles, and a parody-filled tone meet a carefully structured mission-based progression that make it perfect for nomad play, while its multiplayer offers yet another take on ghost cleaning.

    If you need a ingenious, varied and frantic runner, then Rayman Fiesta Run is for you. It is pure delight for your eyes and ears, and it is extremely addictive and fun.

    As a whole, these Fates not only form the most massive Fire Emblem, but they also mark the series' most ambitious move, regarding the spectacular gameplay evolution and the subtle, complex narrative. Each version reveals a distinct approach through strategy or tone, hence such bold choices create a more immersive and dramatic experience. If Intelligent Systems had decided otherwise, Fire Emblem Fates could have become a game of clones. Fortunately, it stands as the ruler of the tactical role playing game of thrones instead.

    Antichamber may very well be one of the best puzzle games in a long, long time. Artistically, in terms of game design, and atmosphere, the purity of the logic and the humbling approach to teaching you to trust your brain, almost everything in it is a bliss.

    Beyond is both better and worse than its illustrious predecessor Heavy Rain. It features more varied gameplay, a better story, talented Hollywood actors and outstanding graphics... but it also lacks something: the ability to make truly decisive choices throughout the adventure. Significant changes you can make story-wise are actually concentrated at the end. However, games of this type and this quality are still too rare to deny yourself the pleasure.

    Like an old magical book, the dust just needed to be wiped off carefully to reawaken Dragon Quest VII's huge power. And that's exactly what ArtePiazza did, illuminating this world remelted through the third dimension, while multiple gameplay adjustments provide a more fluid experience. Fragments of the Past also kept very conservative traditions, hence embarking on such a long journey with so ancient - though proven - equipment demands real commitment. But by taking its time to tell the story, this generous episode delivers a sense of freedom, mystery, then a deep feeling of accomplishment at the end, treasures that are still rare these days.
