    Does Halo Infinite give us a graphic slap worthy of a new generation title? Outside of the cutscenes, not really. Does Halo Infinite offer us an innovative open world? No, the recipe could not be more classic. But Halo Infinite remains one of the best episodes of the saga, which it significantly enriches while offering more tactical combat than ever, the latter requiring the player to constantly adapt to the current situation.

    We already had the good feeling during our preview session two months ago, and it is now a truth : Asterix & Obelix Slap them All! is indeed the little nugget that Microids and Mr Nutz Studio have promised us. Mind-blowingly beautiful (and regardless of the medium chosen, no downgrade, even on Nintendo Switch), the game also enjoys solid gameplay with a hint of strategy quite unexpected.

    Are Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl good remakes? The answer to this question depends on your affinity with the artistic direction of Chibi, as well as your expectations in terms of loyalty or, on the contrary, novelties. Here the cursor clearly leans towards fidelity, which seems to reserve the two games for a nostalgic audience. Newcomers might indeed be put off by some gameplay elements that have aged rather badly. Neither shameful nor indispensable, Sparkling and Perle Scintillante clearly fall into the category of remakes which "do the job" but do not go beyond.

    Used to atypical games, the publisher Annapurna Interactive surprises us once again with Twelve Minutes. Yes indeed the game has some rigid animations, not really worthy in 2021, game is quite short, and the system of dialogues isn't perfect, but the stifling atmosphere, the atypical staging, the surprising scenario and the puzzles are really worth the detour in our opinion.

    In its plan to regain the confidence of players, Microids releases Marsupilami : Hoobadventures, a platform that is certainly inspired by Nintendo productions (Donkey Kong Country for example), but do it really well. Armed with a solid gameplay, the game offers really nice graphics. A really good surprise.

    While the lack of a single-player campaign is a hard pill to swallow, Battlefield 2042 really has others strong arguments. Be able to play with 128 players in the Conquest and Breakthrough modes is obviously very good news, the game becoming more "massively multiplayer" and more spectacular, helped in this by an always impressive Frostbite engine.

    Making Age of Empires IV a modern RTS without betraying the franchise's origins hasn't been an easy task for Relic Entertainment. While some players may blame the lack of risk taking, it must be recognized that disrupting the original gameplay could also have been taken badly. We are therefore dealing with an "Age of" classic in substance, but renewed in form.

    GTA Trilogy The Definitive Edition is a worthy remaster (and not a remake, do not confuse) of the classic GTA opus that defined the open-world genre. It's far from perfect, but it does make a 20 year old game widely playable nowadays.

    Riders Republic is a bit like Forza Horizon by bike, ski, wingsuit… and less successful, we're not going to lie to each other! The game is far from bad, but its "cringe" dialogues, the endless Ubisoftian micro-transactions, and its sometimes surprising physique prevent it from really reaching new heights.

    This new Mario Party is more of a best of compilation than a new iteration. The players will split into two groups : those who will have a feeling of déjà-vu, and those who will appreciate the nostalgic effect. On the other hand, there is no doubt that for newbies, Mario Party Superstars is really a great first experience with the Mario Party formula.

    Very exciting on paper, Back 4 Blood still blows hot and cold once you take it in hand. It's a good shooter, yes. The atmosphere and the Left 4 Dead touch are directly perceptible, of course. The card system extends life and encourages players to be strategic, okay. But there are still too many small imperfections here and there to consider the game a total success.

    Sledgehammer Games is back after 4 years and they are coming back in great shape. Of course, the different multiplayer modes are still effective, but this year the single player campaign really makes the difference. It has more depth with interesting characters and a spectacular setting. We did not expect such a graphically beautiful game either.

    2K Games and Visual Concepts can finally breathe : NBA 2K22 is the episode of reconciliation. With a Career mode which has been enriched and is gradually transformed into a Second Life game with sport (be careful with off-topic anyway), the MyTeam mode which includes the Seasons system and gameplay which tends even more towards simulation, NBA 2K22 is clearly a really good game.

    After five episodes, Playground Games clearly mastered the Forza Horizon formula to the perfection. In both substance and form, the success is total. The game even deploys enough assets to convince beyond car lovers, because the adventure mode offers features that remind us the structure of an action-RPG than of a classic racing game.

    We will be honest with you : by launching Far Cry 6, we came with a negative opinion. It's true that since the Primal episode, the series has declined over the years, with a New Dawn spin-off completely missing its pumps. But it seems that Omar Bouali and his team at Ubisoft Toronto did not want to be responsible for the downfall of the saga. Result : Far Cry 6 surprises and amazes on many aspects; starting with its story, much more interesting than any that we have lived since the beginning of the series.

    Yes the picture is sharper, yes the game is smoother (60fps), yes there have been some improvements to make the adventure more enjoyable, but damn the gameplay has taken a hell of a beating in the back of the head. It was already painful in 2011, it is even more 10 years later, and it is not the tinkering in classic controls that will sublimate the gameplay of this Zelda : Skyward Sword HD.

    As we expected, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is a true next-gen experience, harnessing the many capabilities of the PlayStation 5 with flying colors. Supported by a wonderful artistic direction, we have here a really impressive technical showcase, proving once again that the DualSense has potential that can change a lot of things.

    This Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a good deal! Well yes, the most grumpy will talk about the absence of a precise DLC, the disappearance of the multiplayer mode of Mass Effect 3, but all of this doesn't really weigh much in relation to the quantity and quality of what is offered to us.

    If you are not yet bored with open world and zombie games, then you have no reason to shun the PC version of Days Gone, which is more beautiful, more complete and less buggy than the PS4 version released in April 2019. And if the technical defaults have all been fixed, there are still some concerns regarding the repetitiveness of the adventure, which tends to drag out a bit too long.

    GetsuFumaDen : Undying Moon announces about a year of updates before it reaches its truly final version. These future patches will be necessary to correct the progression and balance of the game, which respectively prove to be too laborious and too punitive at the moment. But these very real flaws do not prevent Konami's rogue-like from being very pleasant already. [Early Access Review Score = 75]

    Hood: Outlaws & Legends could have done better. If the experience offered corresponded to the multiplayer mode of a production with a single player campaign, we would be much more enthusiastic. But as a pure multiplayer game, Hood: Outlaws & Legends still lacks a bit of content, finishing, and balancing to really convince.

    Metro Exodus was already a graphic yardstick in its basic version, but this new edition manages to raise the bar even higher. This progress is mainly due to a more advanced integration of ray tracing, which brings in particular an extremely realistic light.

    Homage supported and assumed to the consoles of the 90s, Golden Force does not seek to revolutionize anything, but only to make us relive the sensations of this beautiful era.

    We expected an exceptional title and Capcom did not lie to us: Resident Evil Village is a great game and above all a great Resident Evil. A true mix between the horror of the seventh episode and the meticulous action of the fourth part, this new opus is the result of a particularly well calibrated and complete experience.

    There is no pleasure without some pain. There is no pain without a certain pleasure. These words spoken by the monk Henepola Gunaratana (94 years old this year) perfectly match what Returnal stands for. The game is far from free flaws, but it offers a thunderous spectacle, especially during boss battles, with these ballets of particles that light up the screen and make you want to be contemplative.

    Halfway between a Dungeon Keeper and a Theme Hospital, Evil Genius 2 is an honorable sequel. Its management mechanics remain very effective, while the atmosphere "James Bond / Austin Powers / No One Lives Forever / 70s" is always as pleasant. A good deal.

    A thousand miles from a simple remaster, Oddworld Soulstorm is also much more than just a remake of Oddworld : Abe's Exodus. Extended in content, updated in the form, enriched in its mechanics, modified in its levels, the game has in fact been completely redesigned.

    Pleasant in many ways despite a few imperfections, Bladed Fury proves once again that we will have to reckon with Chinese developers in the years to come. This emulator of Muramasa fulfills its role perfectly. Chinese mythology and the artistic direction pleasant as their Japanese counterparts.

    Without revolutionizing the shooter-looter genre in any way, Outriders does things efficiently and offers frenetic non-stop action that goes frankly well with co-op play. Too bad the game is repetitive and subject to technical instability, which spoils the game experience.

    It Takes Two is a true couple therapy in which the two players (mandatory coop) will have to work together to overcome a large variety of challenges and activities. The overall feel of the game is very refreshing, but some minor flaws are still there (like poorly balanced minigames).
