    Monster Hunter Generations improves an already excellent breed with new gameplay mechanics, and four new combat stances which can suit any style of player. The content is immense, and the stamina bar is at last unlimited when you run. The only problem is that you need the Circle Pad or the C-stick of the New 3DS to manage the view angle.

    Rome 2: Total War suffers from the same problem as the former episodes: a really poor finish for such a great game. It's a good thing that you can forget this thanks to the quality of the new Creative Assembly game and its strategic richness. More easy to play, full of new features, it will be enjoyed by regular players and newbies.

    With PES 2016, Konami makes a statement: they are back in the game. And at the heart of this final mutation is finely carved gameplay, based on the traditionally precise construction phases of the series and enhanced by new animations and collisions. The result is a game which is, at last, very nice to play.

    If AirMech Arena is not exactly bright and shiny at first, you need to admit that it works wonderfully well once you get the pad. The newcomers will appreciate the way you can learn MOBA basics, while the others will enjoy all the strategic part of the game. It's a shame that AI and too recurrent disconnections come to spoil this positive scene.

    There's no doubt about it, F1 2012 wants to reach perfection as well as proposing a game that could fit players that were not born with a wheel in their hands. Even if it's difficult to talk about innovations, some small modifications are enough to boost the IP. Again, Codemasters proves it knows how to develop a great F1 racing game.

    XCOM 2 is a worthy heir to the franchise with a few improvements to renew the gameplay, and a refreshing script which makes us join the resistance against alien invaders. A worthy investment indeed.

    If Battlefield 4 has only a terrific campaign, Call of Duty Ghosts is far more uniform. It's not such a beautiful game but the campaign is really breathtaking, and you have a large panel of ways to play online. For those who want to play together, there is Extinction mode ; if you're addicted, you can have your daily dose on your mobile ; if you're a noob, you will have the possibility to play with and against bots. A great and complete experience.

    We were afraid that Forza Motorsport 6 would get eaten alive by Project CARS, but Turn 10's game offers a mighty resistance to Slightly mad's game thanks to it's state of the art drivatar system. Still we regret a lousy weather system, a destruction system that's too light and the dullness of the career mode.

    Heavy Rain is the game which makes the most of this new Quantic Dream Collection, with better lights, the end of the blur effect and some clearly defined textures. Beyond Two Souls is more like a classic port of the PS3 version. Anyway, it should be recommended, as long as you don't already own both games.

    Beyond the commercial gamble, Fire Emblem Fates is an excellent tactical-RPG, just like Fire Emblem Awakening was. This new game takes back everything that worked in the previous entry (relationships, support) and adds some very addictive elements, like the castle management or this three-headed story you'll want to explore completely.

    We thought we would be astonished by Forza Motorsport 5, but Turn 10 only filled the requirement boxes forgetting that the goal was to make a car sim that could be a system seller. We won't say that game could have been made on Xbox 360 but we were expecting a revolution not just a nice looking game. On the bright side, we have to mention Drivatar which is born to be a classic in future games, and the gameplay, still at it's best in terms of precision. Turn 10 seems a bit sleepy on this title, not a crime but beware.

    The deadliest bald man in the videogame universe is back in a new episode which strikes hard. Hitman Absolution doesn't revolutionize the roots of the series' concept, but it manages to rejuvenate the method. Beautiful and clearly cinematic, Io Interactive's game gives to the player a great amount of freedom despite some A.I flaws. Thanks to its impressive lifespan and its entertaining multiplayer mode, Hitman Absolution is a member of the end-of-year greatest games.

    Coming out of nowhere for someone not addicted to MMORPG, Wildstar is the antithesis of The Elder Scrolls online. No big IP to sell it, but strong gameplay, a dynamic combat system, colorful graphics and massive content right at the launch. PvE, PvP, battlefields, housing: enough to please everybody and every skill level. Taken individually, those elements are nothing revolutionary, but we could argue that the game looks a bit classic. Overall the game offers a consistent and coherent package which is fun to play, for now and for a long time.

    By giving us the keys to its game design office, Nintendo has achieved yet another great game with Super Mario Maker. Being able to create your own stages is great, while beating the ones made by other people can prove quite frustrating. Still a game to own of you like Nintendo and have an interest in level design.

    Forza Horizon 2 is a total success, from a technical point of a view and from a content point a view. Playground Games has been aware of the demands of their fans and fixed what needed to be. Purists will enjoy all the parameters which were lacking in 2012. But the main quality of this episode is this open world offering of wonderful landscapes.

    Nearly a decade has gone since its first release in 2006, and Gears of War makes a great comeback here. With a few gameplay adjustments and gorgeous visuals, this remake can settle amongst other Xbox One blockbusters with no shame.

    If you're a nostalgic of the NES era, Shovel Knight should have everything you're looking for with 2D graphics and an 8 bit soundtrack. Moreover the boxed version has increased appeal thanks to its impressive content.

    Civilisation V: Brave New World is the last brick added to Sid Meier's game. The arrival of this DLC allows the player to enjoy the complete experience of the famous strategy game. Sold for 30 euros, this DLC is a must-have for avery Civilization fan. While the game came out looking pretty empty, the DLC's have added features that puts Civ V back on it's tracks, giving it back it's status of strategy same's reference. If the content are close to perfect, it's quite sad that Fireaxis and 2K made us go through two main DLC before we can have the feeling of what should have been Civilization V at start.

    If you missed the release of Tearaway on PS Vita, you must definitely taste this magical platformer, full of fresh ideas, on PS4. It's the most endearing and the most original game this fall, by far.

    Ratchet & Clank on PS4 is a very nice tribute to the first entry in the Insomniac series. By no means surprising in what it has to offer, this remake is something gorgeous though, a beautiful game you'll spend some great hours with.

    A very good bundle that offers a tremendous content. 50 solo missions, 100 multiplayer maps, 400 achievements to unlock, 4 player co-op and 16 players online, enough to keep you entertained until 2015 at least. A worthy investment without a doubt.

    This War of Mine: The Little Ones is as good as when it first launched on PCs back in 2014, but with the addition of the "write my story" mode which lets player customize their game, along with the kids now thrown into battle - a must play tittle now on consoles.

    Legacy of The Void is as good as Starcraft 2's previous expansions. If fans are going to buy it asap, we recommend that new players should wait for an edition that regroups the whole content in one box.

    Those who were eagerly waiting for the next-gen football simulation will have to wait a little longer for FIFA 15. Let's be direct: we're far from the great promises made by EA all along the year. It's visually cleaner, more flowing, there are some new animations and the atmosphere has clearly improved in the stadiums. But that's all folks.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is a successful comeback for Bethesda's IP. With an interesting plot, a caricature side and very old-school gameplay which brings back memories of id Software's hours of fame with the like of Doom and Quake, a masterpiece of a casting, MachineGames's new FPS has it all, or almost. We regret a story that's a bit short. Overall Wolfenstein: The New Order is a very good game, that fits well in it's family tree, and it's great fun to play.

    With an outstanding story coupled with awesome graphics, Frictionnal Game's last project has it all to make you shake with fear. But SOMA is much more than this because the story is truly believable. The only drawback is the gameplay we found a bit light for such a game.

    Pokémon X & Y celebrate the transition to a full 3D world. And it's a strong success. Kalos is even more alive, gains volume and credibility. The battles improve too, the creatures have never been so real, so well-animated. This and only this can make you buy those games. On the other hand, Pokémon is still the same title, and X & Y keep making the gameplay evolve little by little.

    Trials HD was already a funny and addictive game on Xbox LIVE Arcade, but with Trials Evolution, RedLynx proves to us that we can make wonderful games with great ideas and little money. And the new features such as the multiplayer mode, the large number of stages and the map editor bring Trials Evolution to the next level. A must have!

    Skylanders SuperChargers seems to have fully understood the problems of Skylanders Trap Team. Everything is not fine yet, but the changes in terms of rhythm, difficulty, graphics make this game better than the previous one. And the vehicles offer players something new to taste.

    Civilization: Beyond Earth is a rightful heir to the IP, with everything in it to make it a great Civ Game with the added touch of an SF context. Don't expect to have found the legacy of Alpha Centauri because this is not it.
