    The Falconeer is a beautiful game that offers a necessary freedom and escape that is much needed right now. It looks incredible, and flying around The Great Ursee feels excellent, but sometimes the combat can be tricky.

    The Falconeer delivers a solid and gratifying aerial combat experience withing an intriguing and mysterious world. While its RPG component feels underdeveloped and characters end up being too anonymous, it's definitely a game to try for lovers of the genre.

    The Falconeer is a beautiful game with an intriguing setting that engaged me throughout my playtime, but the dogfighting disappoints and there’s just not much to it otherwise. It was created by a one-man studio so this is quite an accomplishment, but the fact remains that the final experience falls short of greatness.

    The Falconeer tries to fly so high from very early, but as the hours go by, its structure ends up holding back any hint of excellence and it is reduced to simplicity, which is a shame considering how interesting its planning is. The control is precise, the narrative context is rich and absorbing, but flying is not as satisfying as it could be, clouded by a mission design with repetitive and insistent patterns. The magic is short-lived, despite being a brief and enjoyable experience on the artistic level.

    The presentation package of The Falconeer is quite good, especially on XSX, but that alone couldn’t overcome the struggles I was having with the experience otherwise. I appreciate the effort that went into making this, especially seeing as it was practically done by a one-man studio — but neither the lore or the gameplay really grabbed me and held my interest for long. I could see where more adept and/or forgiving players in this genre would have a better time than I did, though, so if the game sounds interesting to you, it’s worth keeping an eye on, especially given it costs less than half of some of the other launch games.

    The Falconeer starts off as a fun, original take on aerial combat but quickly turns into a boring exercise in repetition that even a mysterious and interesting world can’t save.

    The controls are kind of wonky — as enjoyable as it is to soar, the birds here aren’t exactly the most agile things in the world, so you spend a lot of time banking around and coming in for a new pass, and doing that over and over again until you finally shoot down all your enemies. All of this is probably fine if you want to do is aerial combat for a couple of hours. The Falconeer really only does that one thing, so if it’s your thing, then you’re in luck. Don’t expect anything more than that, though, because there’s pretty much nothing else to do.

    D'un ennui profond, ce jeu n'a rien de next gen, gameplay et progression sans intérêt.

    De temps en temps, il arrive qu’un étron indé soit développé uniquement par le même branque, lequel s’est pris (évidemment) pour un cador !De temps en temps, il arrive qu’un étron indé soit développé uniquement par le même branque, lequel s’est pris (évidemment) pour un cador ! alors que c’est un ancien moddeur de pacotille mais fier de son étron, il parade comme un paon et le montre à tout le monde… et certains s’extasient poliment devant la « création » du branquignol, trop polis pour être honnêtes…

    Mais un guignol qui chie une merde, c’est juste un guignol qui vient de chier, certes tout seul comme un grand, mais ça reste une merde quand même, bordel de merde ! or, dans le cas qui nous o-cul-ppe, le Fauconnier est un faux jeu qui n’a rien d’un vrai jeu puisqu’il est injouable !

    La minicarte est fixe par exemple, l’interface est entièrement à revoir, y compris jusqu’aux menus du jeu eux-mêmes (c’est dire l’étendue des dégâts) et la maniabilité n’est pas maniable. L’imprécision est stupéfiante d’imprécision et la tronche du jeu est celle d’un étron indé en 256 couleurs… en 4K : un étron 4K qui ne fait même pas un bon économiseur d’écran !

    Les voix françaises (on se demande pourquoi on a doublé ce truc-là) sont ridicules et la direction artistique n’a rien d’artistique ; en fait, on dirait un jeu pour smartphone qu’on a sorti sur consoles (on se demande bien pourquoi !). Bref, cet étron indé pue la merde !
