    The Callisto Protocol is the real sequel to Dead Space that we never had and it took Glen Schofield to return to the horror game to get it. However, even if the game takes up all the codes of EA's survival horror with its stressful atmosphere, perfectly mastered, and its really enjoyable gore side, The Callisto Protocol also innovates thanks to its melee combat system, which allows interesting combinations and obliges you to plan your battle plan well, otherwise you will be quickly overwhelmed. A great success and we want a sequel with even more new ideas.

    It's hard to know what audience Microids is targeting with New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja. Old players who have already turned the original game around? Despite the talent of Philippe Dessoly who reminds us that 2D is eternal, asking them to drop 40€ for an "Extend" mode and a few additional screens is abused. As for neophytes fed at checkpoints, automatic saves and other “Easy” modes, there is a chance that they will quickly become discouraged as New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja imposes learning through pain.

    Far from being a simple clone of XCOM on which we would have added a Marvel skin, Midnight Suns is a different tactical. Forgetting about XCOM's game mechanics for an interesting card system sets Firaxis apart from other games. And then the fights benefit from rather pretty visual effects, and different interactions with the environment which add a small additional tactical layer.

    No surprise for the PS5 and Xbox Series versions of Syberia The World Before, which continue the fine work done by Microids Studio Paris started last March with the release of the game on PC. The adaptation on new gen consoles is a great success, both visually and in terms of handling, with more pleasant controls on the joystick than with the keyboard-mouse duo.

    Voluntarily old school, both in its feeling and in its structure, the title developed by the South Koreans fully assumes its status as a basic shooter. Thought as a tribute to a period when video games were simple, it can sometimes be compared to a shoot'em up where shooting and moving continuously is highly vital. Too bad, however, that its very uneven realization prevents it from living up to today's standards.

    Keeping a winning formula is one thing, making it grow is another, and that's the undeniable strength of Sports Interactive with Football Manager. Yes indeed, this 2023 iteration does not reinvent the wheel, but in the other hand, it improves on certain aspects of the franchise, with an even greater immersion with the integration of the Champions League and other UEFA European Cups.

    With its world now completely open, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet clearly make for the best episodes of the saga, but also the most innovative. But on the other hand, it's also the worst in the entire franchise, because of its many bugs that make the internet laugh and its technique that harkens back to the PS2 era. Empty backdrops, blurry textures, framerate dropping all the time, gamers deserve better than this.

    Old school but enjoyable, Evil West offers us a scenario of cowboys and vampires, a very naughty gameplay, and a general design inherited from the games of 2010. A formula that quickly finds its limits in certain aspects of the game, but its combos devastating will satisfy you.

    As funny as the first episode, even more, Goat Simulator 3 improves the initial concept thanks to a larger open world and somes real nice side quests. Spending a few hours discovering all the secrets (and the easter eggs from the pop culture) of this sandbox is therefore pleasant and often very funny. But the game still has its limits and its concept of joke is still sold between 30 and 40 euros.

    The Devil in Me is like the first season of The Dark Pictures: perfectible. If some ingenious shots attest to the developers' love for horror cinema, the stiffness of the facial animations and the lack of relief of the characters prevent any form of empathy, even in the face of a choice with irremediable consequences.

    Pentiment is clearly not a game like the others. An investigation game set in the Middle Ages on the side of Germany, the title developed by Obsidian requires an effort of concentration from players unaccustomed to so many dialogues. Despite this, Pentiment is doing well with a captivating story, pleasant gameplay, despite sometimes readability problems in the story, because of its many dialogues.

    Rather pretty despite the weak technical characteristics of the Nintendo Switch, Smurf Kart allows some trickery even if we are still far from the finesse of a Mario Kart. Too bad the content of the game is so poor, which leads us to believe that it is a ruse by the developers to deploy DLC afterwards.

    Even if old players are the target, Arkanoid Eternal Battle will still appeal to younger generations thanks to the competitive mode. Battle Royale-style kills and a 25-player cap ensure fast, hassle-free games. It is however very regrettable that the servers are so empty, and that we suddenly find ourselves facing AI rather than real players.

    Back to 3D for this new episode of Asterix & Obelix, which is a game fairly faithful to the comics. Despite a nice universe, the game is too repetitive with the added bonus of a fairly low viewing time of 5 hours of play. It would have taken more varied levels, more original puzzles and a more ambitious A.I. for the game to really score the spirits.

    With Sonic Frontiers, SEGA wanted to modernize its license by choosing the open world, which is a great risk. The idea is good but the result is not successful. The world is empty, with no common sense, game mechanics way too redundant, and technically the game is way too dated. We get bored quickly in this Sonic Frontiers who wants to do something new, but never manages to convince. You don't become an open world expert by clapping your hands, right…

    The Chant will not be one of the games to remember in 2022, because of its dated graphics and snoring gameplay. Situations sometimes don't make sense, with weak attacks having more impact than heavy hits. Overall, the combat system lacks dynamism and subtlety. On the other hand, the atmosphere is captivating, but that's not enough to make it a good game.

    Once the first 5 hours of God of War Ragnarök have passed, which look like a giant tutorial, the adventure finally really begins and becomes an epic odyssey, much more ambitious than the first episode. The gameplay gains in depth with relevant or ingenious additions, the fights slam hard, especially the bosses (finally colossal monsters!) and exploration will take you to sometimes immense and visually very varied kingdoms. But we especially retain from this God of War Ragnarök a breathtaking staging which multiplies the spectacular and emotive sequences. A truly must-have.

    This year's Call of Duty is a solid installment, with gameplay that captures the best of what's been done in recent years. There's a feeling of best of deja vu but it's quite effective. The multiplayer also offers a well-oiled but unsurprising formula. Neither the best episode of the saga nor the worst, Modern Warfare II remains overall very pleasant to play.

    Dragon Ball: The Breakers is a breath of fresh air for a license that is going around in circles in video games. The trouble is that having a good idea is not enough, you still have to exploit it well. Fun with friends, it is quickly frustrating with strangers, due to its excessive lack of balance and quickly limited gameplay. Also the game is ugly and technically belongs to the PS3 X360 eras.

    As magnetizing as when it debuted 12 years ago, the Bayonetta series remains a reference in terms of beat 'em up. Far from the intimate character of the last God of War, the witch of Umbra spits in the mouth of the narration to bet everything on the verb and the skill. Extremely deep combat system, pounding bosses, insane pacing from first to last chapter.

    New Tales from the Borderlands is a very good spiritual sequel to Tales from the Borderlands. The genre remains particular, of course, the total absence of challenge, and the passages actually playable can put some people off. But if this simplified gameplay suits you, then there's no reason to miss out on this humorous adventure, rather well written, populated by delirious characters, and surprisingly aesthetic.

    We had placed a lot of hope in this Gotham Knights. The adventure was pleasant but too imperfect, interesting but not legendary enough; especially for a license around the Dark Knight, even without him in the title role. Too bad then. It is therefore high time for him to come back, and in the most beautiful way.

    Released in 2016 and then in 2017 on PlayStation, these two episodes of Uncharted are coming to PC in a technically improved version. Even in 2022, the graphics have lost none of their brilliance, especially since they no longer bother with any technical limits.

    Going from innocence to requiem, A Plague Tale brings a very beautiful conclusion to an adventure that will remain in our memories. This second installment reinforces the eternal bond between Hugo and Amicia, increases the number of rats displayed on the screen tenfold, enriches its combat system, introduces interesting new characters, and moves up a gear.

    Mario + The Rabbids Kingdom Battle was a very good game, and Mario + The Rabbids Sparks of Hope is a very good sequel! We instantly find our bearings, as well as the improbable but effective cross between the colorful world of Mario and the delirious one of the Rabbids. However, the formula has been sufficiently renewed so that no repetition effect is felt.

    Unhealthy, gloomy and scary, Scorn pours into true horror. Not the "good-natured" one of classic survival horror and easy jumpscares, but the one that grips the guts and really makes you feel uncomfortable. His sticky and visceral universe, inspired by the works of H.R. Giger and Zdzisław Beksiński, offers us a nightmarish biomechanical vision. In fact, with regard to the atmosphere, Scorn is a bit Agony in success.

    We suspected it a little, but it is sure now : Overwatch 2 is more an update of the first installment than a real sequel. Fortunately, the game became a free-to-play game and the news business model helps to forget this lack of new features and the fact that Blizzard has recycled a lot of things, like all the characters and stages.

    Ambitious and promising, Dakar Desert Rally is ultimately not the great rally game that we were sold. Even if its open world is pleasant to browse, especially when the navigation aids are deactivated, the game still has problems already present in Dakar 18. We think in particular of the physics not developed, the weakness of the AI, to the indications of the co-pilot which are not connected with what we see on the track, or to the still too numerous bugs. The Saber Porto studio spent more time creating its open world, forgetting the errors of Darak 18.
