    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.

    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.

    FIFA 16 is a good football game. That's precisely the problem. FIFA is "just" a good game now, and not the simulation which ruled the football world for years. EA seems to struggle to find how to make his series move forward again.

    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.

    With Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U, 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. And yet, the use of the GamePad won't revolutionize the gameplay. Thanks to the Tag Crash and the Tag Assault attacks, the fighting sequences are now mostly well-balanced. Moreover, with tons of playable characters, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U is a clearly the kind of title that a lot of players will enjoy. As regards the introduction of the new Mushroom and Tekken Ball Battle modes, it's not really significant.

    Project CARS is simply the best racing sim that money can buy on eighth generation consoles thanks to a very nice physics engine and very decent content. A must buy for petrolheads.

    Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition is pretty much similar to Arkham Asylum. Less focused on the story, Rocksteady's game sticks to the usual codes linked to the famous Dark Knight, flying from crime scene to crime scene across Gotham City. A great liberty of action that offers diversified gameplay sequences. However, the Wii U version suffers from freezing problems and the new gameplay mechanics introduced by the GamePad are mostly anecdotal.

    Gravity Rush allows players to alter gravity in order to reach any places, with heroine's head upside down. A great idea who makes the player feel as if he can fly through the entire city without limits. Despite minor gameplay issues, Gravity Rush is a unique experience, combining energetic fights and a true sense of adventure in gorgeous environments.

    Grow Home is an interesting surprise from a publisher who get used to mismanaging his own IP's. This platformer like no other has everything going for you and for a very low price tag. You can easily give it a try.

    EA Sports UFC 2 is quite simply the best MMA game there is. Loaded with improvements over the past iteration, the game still suffers from a poor netcode and a very repetitive career mode.

    The Division is quite a pleasant surprise as long as you play it with some good friends. New York is well-duplicated and the content overshadows Destiny's, yet with some DLCs it will be perfect. The only drawback is the need for a permanent Internet connection.

    Despite almost no genuinely new stuff in the game, and a easy-to-guess scenario, Rise of The Tomb Raider is one of the best games of the year thanks to an impeccable technical aspect and very good gameplay which alternates between action, exploration, climbing and a lot of loot.

    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.

    Far Cry 4 is one of the best solo /coop first-person shooters we've come across lately with massive content, a vast open world filled with life, and some truly awesome graphics on the PS4 version we reviewed. Just don't expect a revolution, but more of a Far Cry 3.5.

    Without changing anything, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 offers an action packed game based on your ability to inflict a maximum of damage to your enemies. In spite of a very old graphics engine, the game offers a decent life with about 15 hours of play. With dynamic gameplay, the ip follows the likes of Devil May Cry and God of War for the fan's enjoyment. The only true drawback is a very poor script that loses the player in its turns before the grand finale where a very expected twist happens, destroying all hopes of a good story.
