    This journey back to the roots of Professor Layton is as much a way of discovering his past as it is one to draft a first sum-up of the series before it moves to the 3DS pastures for a new trilogy. Confident about its formula, Level-5 offers treasures of riddles throughout an adventure that focuses on characters rather than on the plot, as enticing as it may prove to be. So, even though the formula doesn't really evolve, it still concludes this run with subtle touches here and there to improve the lot.

    By exploiting the autostereocopic display cleverly, HAL Laboratory added depth in many ways to this cloudy world.

    A really tense episode with good character development, some disturbing choices to make, some great fan service and a terrific finish.

    The Sims 3 : Ambitions clearly peers at the Adventure genre, in an apparent attempt at pepping up its gameplay. A new direction that we already felt with World Adventures, the first expansion pack. As it was the case with this previous one, it's the opening of a new side of the title that makes this expansion interesting. The impact those new experiences have in the long run on the personal stories of the avatars help forgetting the immediacy they may seem to have at first glance. For the first time, our Sims live real and distinctive lives and their interactions have influence over their neighbors' lives.

    Battlefield 1 is gorgeous and impressive in all domains, and for once in the series, the single-player campaign lives up to the multiplayer mode. Beyond some bugs and minor issues, the main problem here is the inexplicable absence of the French and Russian armies.

    Tokyo Jungle is a weird game, but one that shows enthusiasm and passion. Its survival gameplay and scoring mechanics work well in solo play, the two player mode is less convincing. The loads of species to play introduce a very nice variety to explore.

    Just like the weather, Rain arouses different feelings. Some people may consider it as a melancholic, familiar phenomenon, while other might see it as a purely magical moment. Because at the end of the road, it's just a question of interpretation, like art.

    It took patience to enjoy StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, but we can say that Blizzard reconfirms that the RTS is its chosen field. The campaign is good and if you're not a PvP fan, the addition of a co-op mode is a good alternative. Regarding the online multiplayer, Blizzard brings many changes that will undoubtedly bring new strategies.

    Sometimes, Resonance is confusing because its system is somewhat unclear. It requires time, a cold head, and a good awareness of clues in order to solve the puzzles. But you're then rewarded with a really good story and lovable characters. A very nice point & click, both funny, mature, and poignant.

    As we expected, PES 2015 is back in the game. This first edition on PS4 and Xbox One (even if this version is visually a bit disappointing) will please all of those who were missing the unique feeling from the series. Beautiful and incredibly enjoyable when you get to improve your skills and understand how it works.

    With Party Wave, you're in for a good time. Its accessible yet deep gameplay will challenge you more than the vast majority of iOS titles, without being frustrating.

    With a hunting ground expanded in every possible way, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is a wilder journey than ever, although some primal - if not archaic - instincts must still be tamed to enjoy such a deep experience. A real challenge for newcomers, but that's natural selection.

    Don't let the huge map of Total War Rome II intimidate you. The game is still pretty much the same (crunching numbers and crushing people) and the political system doesn't cut it. It's even easier than usual, mostly because of the absence of turns limit and a pretty passive AI in "normal" mode. Make sure you set the difficulty on the right challenge or you will bore yourself back to Italy. It's also a bit less spectacular then expected, but a real strategist doesn't mind, and Rome II's richness is breathtaking to say the least.

    Even though its gameplay remains pretty classical, Bastion shows its singularity through its real time, voiced-over narration. During play of this Action RPG title, which remains solid and rich if not original, a voice will tell of your doings, your failures, every step of the way. Add a nice sense of progress and lush 2D visuals, and you may have the indy game of this summer '11 before your eyes. Even though it's not as remarkable as the likes of Braid or Limbo.

    A really great narrative experience supported by classy graphics and audio, with a really enjoyable and well-written story. Its characters shine through an impeccable dialogue system that feels definitely natural, thanks to fantastic voice acting.

    Thumper is a unique rhythm game that can scare and hypnotize you and, from the hellish second part of the game, discourage you. But if you're looking for a clever and worthy - and painful - challenge, you can trust it blindly.

    Dragon's Crown is a tribute to all the best 2D beat'em all from the past. It is beautiful, deep, and is today one of the best in its class.

    One great game which will allow you to experience 10 years of hunting virtual monsters on portable devices. From the first PSP game to the very last Nintendo 3DS one, there are a lot of content to discover in this game. Plus, thanks to new Style and Art systems, fighting a monster has never been as dynamic and satisfying as with Monster Hunter Generations.

    Judging by its first episode, Batman: The Telltale Series offers a fresh new take on Batman video games. Having to navigate political waters as Bruce Wayne is as much (if not more) fun as busting criminal scum heads as Batman. Let's hope that the plot will get even more interesting as the story progresses.

    Don't trust its cartoony looks, Sly Cooper isn't just for kids. Behind its mask, our beloved animal thief hides a delightful sense of humor. It also boasts a ton of tricks to play with in terms of gameplay, despite its stealth nature slowly conceding territory to the more action-y aspects of its gameplay. In the end, the adventure is full of variety and fun, and may very well be the most refined and rich episode of the series - it most certainly is one of the best 3D platformers out there these days.

    Don't Starve is brilliantly titled. This rich and smart rogue-like defies you to explore and survive an equally cruel and alluring randomly generated world, but I suspect that the "Don't Starve" advice isn't for your character but for yourself: the game is so enticing and brilliant that those playing it will soon find themselves skipping the real life meals to continue playing.

    A really good port of the PS360 versions, with fluid animation both on screen and on the GamePad, that will undoubtedly help those who'd have loved a Mario Kart at launch.

    No More Heroes 2 : Desperate Struggle is a journey of its own. Blessed with solid and enjoyable gameplay, Grasshopper's title draws the player into a furious whirlwind of violence and madness, complete with references to wrestling, moe, and cult movies. Diabolically orgasmic. NMH 2 universe is an otaku's dream world, with unlikely bosses, and an enjoyable bad taste, that will make you forget about the technical shortcomings of the game and place it among the classics of the Wii.

    A nice blend of Tower Defense and Action/RPG gameplay, Dungeon Defenders uses the carrot (characters with a persistant progression even when you fail) and the stick (a Dark Souls-like difficulty) with talent. The artistic direction and really punishing gameplay may be its worst shortcomings, but playing cooperatively with three friends still is a very nice experience.

    Dawn of War III is a beautiful marriage of successful technique and very pleasant gameplay. A true festival of pyrotechnics effects, it's one of more beautiful games in the strategy category. Nevertheless, the game is not without fault, and we regret the cruel lack of content in multiplayer (only one mode). But Relic has achieved its goal and the game is good mix between nostalgia and evolution.

    Hoplite is a procedural tactical game that will require patience, concentration and planning. The ideal indie game to chain-die in the bus, the subway or on the beach.

    To sum-up LEGO City Undercover to a simple GTA with bricks would be a shame. Full of satire fore previous Telltale LEGO games and rich without any franchise to support it, City Undercover is able to charm with extensive content, no violence, and several layers of subtext for all to enjoy. It's a trans-generational game, and a good one at that.

    A correct port, which doesn't benefit as much as one would think from the Wii U GamePad touch screen. Still the only way to hold this galaxy in the palm of your hands.

    Mercury Steam continues to demonstrate its talent in this new contribution to its Lords of Shadow reboot of the Castlevania series. Beautifully transposed to 2,5D gameplay, this 3DS title brings back together demanding platforming and deep combat mechanics, in an accessible mix that only lacks a little more puzzles and, for old-timers, challenge.
