    Like last year's bundle, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix is a pretty neat game that brings two new episodes on the PS3. With a huge content and a clean technical aspect, this is another hit for Square Enix that could even make players forget about their endless wait for Kingdom Hearts 3.

    Payday 2 is undoubtedly the biggest surprise of august 2013. We were not expecting a game of such a quality from Overkill Software, moreover if you experienced the first episode of the serie. Even the price of 30 euros was leaving us skeptical, but Payday 2 hacks your brains with its intense and addictive gameplay. It's simple and it works, outpacing the ad's promises. With an almost unlimited replayability, payday 2 will challenge your brains with multitasking between a heist to manage, a team to keep alive and hordes of aggressive copas. Simply brilliant!

    Super Mario 3D World is using mechanics from another century, but is Nintendo to blame if old recipes still work? The risk-taking stays minimal, and the core gamers will mostly enjoy the two last worlds in spite of a difficulty level that has improved significantly. Impossible to forget the level design and the precision of the gameplay, which defines the game. Even the multiplayer mode is good in spite of some camera problems. Nintendo set everything to perfection and most players should enjoy this Super Mario 3D World.

    DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition admirably brings Ninja Theory's reboot from 2013 to PS4 and Xbox One. The 1080p definition and 60fps sublimates the gameplay, making it even more nervous. The right way to take on the new challenges the game has to offer.

    The main attraction in Titanfall remains the gameplay. On this side, there is no doubt that Respawn did a really great job. It's excellent, handy even with the profusion of possibilities. The parts of the game you play in Titans and you play on your feet are very well-balanced as well. However, it's difficult to hide the small number of modes and their lack of originality.

    The war ain't some glorious thing like portrayed in Call of Duty; it's the definition of darkness and horror as This War of Mine will show you. What's the price of survival? It's yours to decide in this truly awesome game.

    If Nintendo refuses to start developing new licenses, it's only because the firm already has enough talent to efficiently renew it's existing ones with a success others have yet to match. Luigi's Mansion 2 is a perfect example of this pattern as Luigi's new adventures in haunted houses hack your mind like drugs once the player understands the finer points of the game. The gameplay has a great finesse which is very enjoyable and the directing along the general atmosphere are almost a masterpiece. Of course the lack of a second controlling stick is not the best feature of the game and we would have liked a multiplayer mode with more rhythm. But the number of qualities provided by Luigi's Mansion 2 makes this game a classic of the 3DS lineup.

    Zandatsu is quite a good symbol for this Metal Gear Rising Revengeance : a development divided, fragmented but a game that is highly efficient. Very short indeed, you can see it suffered from this change of direction. Nevertheless, with such a turbulent life, Rising manages to give players a rare and intensive game experience. Definitely, it's an Enfant Terrible, a Son of Liberty.

    We expected a lot from Dead Space 3 and were not disappointed. The game keeps all its promises, with true moments of tension proving that Visceral Games hasn’t betrayed the Dead Space series. Horror is there, and we have never seen such violent Necromorphs. This perfect balance between action sequences and anguish is efficient, avoiding Dead Space 3 making the same mistake as Resident Evil 6. But we must be honest with the fans: if the next Dead Space has more action scenes, there will be reason to fear the worst. Since it’s not a perfect game, it’s important to highlight the poor cover system and the lack of boss fights. Although the deep weapon crafting system is likely to annoy the purists, Dead Space 3 remains a great experience you have to live.

    Spec Ops The Line is a good TPS whose lack of originality regarding its gameplay mechanics can be easliy criticized. And yet, the title offers a great experience, depicting a bright and apocalyptic vision of Dubaï, just as if players were there. The mise-en-scène of Spec Ops The Line also manages to share, both psychologically and physically, the craziness experienced by our heroes. Finally, the classic multiplayer modes make us forget the short time needed to finish the main campaign.

    With its remarkably effective 4 Vs 1 asymetric gameplay, 2K's latest shooter brings an alternative to the likes of COD and BF. With a new concept that makes you hunt before you fight, Trutle Rock's game has it all to make its mark in the e-sports arena.

    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is probably the best episode in the Capcom series, even if we're talking about evolutions and not revolutions. It's also a very good ambassador for the New 3DS.

    It's nice to discover this brand new take on Lara Croft with this next-gen version. But there's nothing outstandingly new here to be fair. High framerate means obviously flawless gaming comfort and Lara's looking much better now. There is some extra content too, but if you bought the older version, there's no real reason to pay once again. Especially when it's full price.

    At the end of the day, you can't find any big problems that could waste your game experience of Endless Space. Some might say that the battles aren't spectacular enough, the IA is too basic, or the graphic engine is very demanding. But it's nothing if you look at the long nights you'll spent managing your galactic empire. For this price, do not hesitate. End turn.

    Football Manager 2015 is a nice refund for an inconsistent 2014 iteration. Sports Interactive takes a gamble with a reshuffled UI, but it clearly pays off as the game becomes more enjoyable to navigate. The manager profile is another great feature that deepen the bond between the player and his team. FM comes closer and closer to perfection.

    With its dirty and stressful universe, its wonderful artistic direction and the impressive bosses, Tango Gameworks' game teaches a lesson to Capcom's Resident Evil. A true sequel to Resident Evil 4, believe us.

    It's tough to deny the quality of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. Little by little, Blizzard makes the original version more perfect and this expansion is logically a must-have for fans. Newborn strategists and skilled warlords will find what they're looking for. There is still one question, however: did Blizzard hold back enough new elements for the last expansion devoted to Protoss?

    Republique Remastered is a very special game that's at peace with it's mobile gaming origins, and succeeds in bringing a very good game to the "grown up" PC world. The only drawback is the unknown tied to the lack of the 4th and 5th chapters, that should theoretically be released for free later. We can only hope they're as good as the first three existing chapters. Anyway, get your passport from this Republic: you won't regret it.

    Fans of Versus Fighting or 2D fighting games in general, do not miss the gem called Jojo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle, even if you don't know a thing about the series or the manga. Like Street Fighter 4, CyberConnect2's title will appeal to newbies and veterans alike thanks to its arcade stick and its smooth gameplay, but it's also filled with subtleties that require skill if you get into it. Top all this with brilliant direction (awesome graphics) and a base roster of 32 characters with many interesting game modes (besides the useless campaign mode which has a despicable business model) and you'll get an explosive mix. A very nice game to pick up while waiting for Ultra Street Fighter IV, set for this summer, and which is going to be another update of Capcom's fighting game.

    CyberConnect2 has listened to fans' feedback for Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, and it was the right decision. The mistakes of Generations are behind now and we're offered a really good Story mode, even if you'll be only watching your screen most of the time. With a huge choice of characters and a still very efficient gameplay, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is obviously the very best episode.

    We were anticipating this version of Titanfall with some apprehension. Finally, it's a pretty good port, even compared to the Xbox One edition. Of course, the two games aren't able to produce the same visual quality, but that doesn't impact the gaming experience and you will have fun on Xbox 360 too.

    As expected, Trials Fusion is a real success. Ubisoft is now leading the game, and it's enhanced technically as well as in a gameplay matter. The track editor, challenges and extra content weren't even needed. It's kind of strange but the multiplayer modes is the only bad argument against this title, that deserved much more on this side.

    God of War Ascension is a controversial subject. If fans will be disappointed because the game is less spectacular than God of War 3, newcomers will be seduced by Kratos who has always been close to perfection. SCEA Santa Monica Studio masters the main aspects of the game: graphics are beautiful, the final boss fight is huge and the voice acting is efficient. In fact, the problem is all people remember God of War 3 and were expecting the same show. This is not the case and we think that the game should be seen as a transitional period which allows a second team to develop God of War 4. We hope that.

    Tearaway is a true visual success but also offers some fresh air with its gameplay, in which player interact with the characters. Some moments lack of accuracy, the touch screen isn't always precise and the camera can be unpredictable. But Tearaway is full of new ideas and that makes forget all the rest.

    Ten years, five expansions, and World of Warcraft keeps reinventing itself. Warlords of Draenor is no revolution, no disruption, but it makes the gaming experience even deeper. A good way to show that WoW is still the number one MMORPG.

    Like snow or Christmas decorations, Call of Duty shows itself by the end of the year. Like every year since Modern Warfare. This time, it's the turn of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, developed by Treyarch. Unlike its predecessor, the story sets in two distinct eras, the 80's and the year 2025. Two viewpoints which allow the game to offer many side roads in the story, and 8 different endings. This is a first for such a mainstream series. Of course the game's core remains the same on the basics: cinematic action, epic scenes and a percussive score. Even if Black Ops 2 reuses old recipes, it does it really well and remains a great experience.

    With Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Katsuhiro Harada proposes a good sequel to the successful fighting game released on PS2. The gameplay mechanics are still intuitive but leave room for improvement. Thanks to the Tag Crash and the Tag Assault attacks, the fighting sequences are now mostly well-balanced. Moreover, with tons of playable characters and the new World Tekken Federation, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is a clearly the kind of title that a lot of players will enjoy, especially when it comes to building communities around it.

    At a time where FPS, RPG and action games appear on the market everyday, the return of XCOM is welcomed with a great satisfaction. If purists will be sad to find some of the original features gone, the newcomers will be pleased with XCOM : Enemy Unknown and its strategic and pleasant gaming experience that teaches a lesson to traditional and boring war games.

    Maybe Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea - Episode 2 is exactly what Thief was meant to be: the best stealth game of the early days of 2014? This one is an absolutely must-have for Bioshock fans. As an awful reflection of the recent events at Irrational Games, Bioshock releases its true conclusion and leaves the taste of accomplishment. An awesome last shot.

    No matter what historic setting is chosen by Ubisoft for Assassin's Creed, it remains very authentic and immersive and it keeps you involved. But you can't ignore that the series begins to be seriously stuck on its basis and there isn't really any attempt to fix its problems. AI is as lame as usual, we already know all the types of missions we are offered... Hopefully Ubisoft will make something big for the next installment.
