    EA Sports is preparing its transition in the best possible way by dusting off old systems that are still well established while integrating into its simulation elements that are now essential for a game of this scale and with such a large audience...This year, FIFA 23 is a Next-Gen game with its Hypermotion technology, and we sincerely hope that it will not be changed in the next few weeks, because as it is, it is the best FIFA since the 17th.

    Grounded offers a survival game that is both fun and accessible, without taking the player by the hand. The difficulty is present, without being punishing, and the progression is really satisfying through this gigantic garden, which manages to mix beauty and arachnid horrors. It's an interesting adventure, whether you're playing single or multiplayer, and we can't help but recommend trying it out, even to those who usually ignore survival games.

    Although it has room for improvement, the truth is that it is a pleasant surprise after last year's title. 2K pays tribute to the NBA and recovers the value of the great moments that defined its rise to the Olympus of video games.

    Soulstice is a beat them all with excellent gameplay and we can thank the duality of possibilities offered by Lute and Briar for that. The story is mysterious and transports us for about fifteen hours into a tragic story. Nevertheless, we deplore some technical defects, the layout of some levels or arenas, as well as the third-person view which may put off some people.

    Dedicated to the WorldSBK 2022 championship, SBK 22 is a lighter version of MotoGP 22. It has the same components, without the historical mode. There are fewer bikes and fewer tracks, for a slightly reduced price. If you own MotoGP 22, unless you are a Superbike championship fan, you may wonder why you should add this redundant title to your game library. But It is indeed a very good simulation with real driving sensations.

    Two Point Campus is an accessible management game that will delight casual players for its humor, its clear and pleasant ergonomics and especially for the successful feeling of making a university evolve. Regular players, on the other hand, will quickly exhaust the game mechanics and get bored because of the lack of challenge.

    Rather modest in the end, Metal Hellsinger is a nice game with a great concept and music that accompanies it perfectly. You can spend a handful of intense hours playing it without regret, in order to experience its innovative gameplay. However, you have to be interested in the scoring based on the rhythmic aspect to linger on it, since it doesn't have much else to offer afterwards.

    Nintendo does not take any risks with a Splatoon 3 that is far too close to its predecessor on many points, a predecessor that a sequel that was already lacking in notable novelties compared to the original WiiU title. This is all the more frustrating as the gameplay is still very pleasant to play and the charm of this very special formula remains intact. As far as content is concerned, if we put aside the new weapons, it's mainly the solid single player campaign full of good ideas that manages to raise the bar of this lackluster episode.

    Steelrising is a game that borrows a lot of good ideas from other titles of the genre while putting its own identity. Paris is an incredible playground where the artistic direction takes all its meaning and gives us a lot of eye candy. However, the technical side of the game struggles to keep up and we can clearly feel that the studio lacked the means to achieve its ambitions. The gameplay is very well thought out, rigid without being rigid, which fits perfectly with our character devoid of flesh and blood. Steelrising will perfectly satisfy Souls-like fans who don't know what to do once Elden Ring is over... As long as you can get past the technical aspects and the realization that sometimes leaves something to be desired and certainly deserves more attention.

    More beautiful than ever, the adventure offered by the remake of The Last of Us Part 1 fully exploits the PS5's capabilities. But the lack of fresh content or significant innovations gives the unpleasant impression of paying a high price for a graphic patch. We therefore recommend it above all to the hardcore fans of the original, as well as to players who are new to the license and who absolutely want the best possible experience.

    Somewhere between GTA and Just Cause, Saints Row doesn't manage to match the gameplay of these two titles, and its particular humor doesn't hit the mark often enough to compensate. The realization also leaves something to be desired, with sometimes poor graphics, fights that are as superficial as they are imprecise, and exploration that gives the impression of floating in the scenery as soon as you want to climb somewhere. Fortunately, the driving and car chases compensate, especially in co-op. Saints Row still allows you to spend some good moments indulging in absurd activities, with some funny situations.

    Full of good intentions, Soul Hackers 2 never really convinces: its limited gameplay and redundant environments make it an experience that shows its limits very quickly, and it should take you a couple of hours before you get to the bottom of it. Lovers of Japanese turn-based games can still try their luck to fill a hollow tooth, but it doesn't offer anything substantial enough to quench their MegaTen thirst.

    Cult of the Lamb is a good little game as we would like to see more often. It is accessible, fun and enjoyable, with simple and effective combat on the one hand. Moreover, the management of the cult offers interesting choices, while confronting us with its horrors hidden behind its cute appearance. It's quickly over, and we have a good time, but we still regret that it wasn't more ambitious, and that its different facets weren't developed more.

    Hard West 2 is a classic game at heart with a progression system that is lacking. However, the fantastic western atmosphere, coupled with a neat narrative and combat that is both satisfying and varied in tactical situations, make the game a good pick up, both for fans of the genre and for those who would like to learn about turn-based strategy games.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a very generous title, maybe a bit too much: trying to make itself interesting, Monolith Soft's J-RPG ends up spreading itself by unfolding its story in a confusing and clumsy way. The same is true for the gameplay: flexible and addictive, it ends up showing its limits in the last third, due to an overabundance of enemies and soporific game situations. It remains a very good Japanese RPG, with an undeniable solidity that should keep you glued to your Switch for more than 50 hours.

    Unfortunately, the life span of Stray is limited to the number of lives the cats can have. Indeed, we finished the game at 100% in a little less than 9 hours. We estimate that 7 hours will be more than enough to finish the main plot of the game, or even 10 hours for players who will take their time to contemplate each painting offered by the game. In a way, Stray's rather affordable price is in line with its lifespan. The more skilled players may even take less time to finish the game, so it's quite a shame. Stray is a fabulous title that offers a refreshing environment, a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat and meticulous exploration that makes you want more, but our beautiful journey ends when we clearly want more.

    If you're not put off by the style of graphic animation and are a fan of narrative games, you should try this title, especially with friends. The discussions it can generate to make decisions, with the possibility of vetoing some of them, is an interesting idea, as is the broadcast mode on Twitch. Even in solo, the scenario as well as the atmosphere of the game, and the delicate situations it proposes, are worth the detour. The graphics and music are particularly well done. Don't expect a challenge, since the title is aimed at all players. As for the storyline ramifications, they are numerous and easily accessible enough to promote replayability.

    Without being the most exciting, original or accomplished rogue-like of the genre, Gwent: Rogue Mage nevertheless offers a recipe that works, all in the familiar universe of The Witcher. Players who like the modern recipe of CD Projekt Red's TCG, but prefer to play solo, should enjoy it for a while, especially since its price is really modest. However, the alterations made to the gameplay may put off some players, and it quickly feels like they are doing the same thing over and over again.

    Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is the expansion we've been waiting for, with richer and more satisfying gameplay than ever, added content, and a seriously enhanced difficulty. Even if it introduces a new and very fun way to play single player, as well as various upgrades, it can be criticized for being too classic, and simply following the usual formula, as well as being too light in terms of content. The game also still suffers from the big disparity between the PC and the Switch in terms of graphic capabilities. But if you liked Rise, you'll love Sunbreak.

    With its dense gameplay and its numerous progression mechanics, Fire Emblem Warriors 3 Hopes really has everything it takes to make Fire Emblem and mass beat them up fans enjoy themselves. However, it can be criticized for clogging the player with menus, with endless end-of-battle screens and maybe too many things to manage outside the battles. Nevertheless, FEW3H remains one of the most solid and complete musou of the last years, you would be wrong to miss this return to the world of Fodlan.

    If The Quarry suffers from some obvious technical problems, especially during the first chapters, they quickly fade away in favor of an engaging plot, credible relationships and logical interactions. Aware of its origins (Until Dawn), it doesn't rest on its laurels and offers a new interactive teen-movie, much less cliché than its predecessor, which will undoubtedly delight fans of the genre. The Quarry is contemplative. Get involved, get interested in what it offers, and it will probably give you back. And remember: what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    Mario Strikers Battle League Football could be a strong contender to your other games for a summer of football. With its simplistic look hiding much more complex mechanics to master and an equipment system that can shape your characters, it can suit beginners who just want to have fun, but also more experienced players who are looking for a little more technical mastery with the controller in hand. In case you want to spend some time alone in your corner, this might not be the perfect title for you since it is focused on multiplayer and the Club Strikers mode which is the feature that can keep the game alive in the long run.

    For casual or moderate players who don't want to be competitive, Diablo Immortal proves to be a fun and enjoyable game on mobile, which adapts the gameplay of the Diablo license well. Invested players, on the other hand, will struggle with artificially slowed progression, completely insane premium store prices to optimize their character, and a barely functional PC version. The whole multiplayer aspect of the title is also terribly clunky and artificial. If you don't think you'll be able to resist the temptations of impulse buying, avoid it. Otherwise, it's possible to get invested in it and enjoy it in the long run.

    Souldiers was "this close" to join the not so closed club of the great indie metroidvania, only its absurd difficulty and its finally very flat gameplay got the better of the pleasure of the game quite quickly. It's a pity, because Retro Forge's title is full of very good ideas and, damn it, it's got a lot of good looks: apart from some dubious color choices on some shots, Souldiers can at least boast of a 2D of an almost unprecedented finesse. To make it short: it's very beautiful, but really average.

    For those who are just looking for an exercise guide to work out, then Let's Get Fit is what you need. It offers different tools and programs to meet different profiles, and different expectations, whether it is to ensure your well-being or actively try to build muscle. However, it fails with its very irregular tracking of movements, and its minimalist feedback on performance. Moreover, it does not look enough like a game, which can be a serious flaw when the main difficulty is to keep the motivation and interest of the aspiring athletes.

    For a small independent game without much pretension, Trek to Yomi does it with all the honors. The fights are maybe a bit basic and the journey is a bit short, but the replayability it offers allows to extend the experience, and its aesthetics is just great. If you like Kurosawa's cinema, the Edo period and the bushido code, it should definitely delight you.

    Warhammer 40 000 Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters is without a doubt one of the best games of the license, it's beautiful, with a neat art direction, and a fantastic atmosphere that pays tribute to the brutality of its universe. The gameplay elements are well thought out, from managing the ship, to preparing the troops, and especially the turn-based combat. It should satisfy fans of tactical games with its myriad possible approaches to commanding its Grey Knights. Not everything is perfect, there are a few clumsinesses, and it becomes quite repetitive at some point, but it didn't spoil the experience.

    With King Arthur: Knight's Tale, the studio NeoCore Games fulfills its contract to offer a tactical turn-based game with demanding combat and RPG-inspired progression. Its exciting setting (a mix of dark fantasy and Arthurian legend) allows for multiple epic, dark and dramatic stories to be told. By omitting its classicism and focusing on its successful battles and notable difficulty.

    Even more efficient than its predecessor, Switch Sports has won us over with the technicality offered by certain disciplines such as Chambara or Volleyball, with the precision of the Joy-Con movements and especially with the implementation of a competitive ranking. Unfortunately, to enjoy this incredible "esport" addition, matches against players from all over the world or even cosmetics to customize your avatar, you need to have the Online subscription. Of course, it is possible to enjoy the title locally with friends, but the strength of Switch Sports lies in its competitive version.

    Kaiju Wars is an ingenious tribute to all the big monster disaster movies. It is full of personality and good ideas on all levels. Through its well thought out gameplay, it reproduces the helplessness of a conventional army desperately trying to slow down Godzilla and his colleagues as they raze a city, with the stress of watching the monsters advance without being able to defeat them and the satisfaction that comes with victory, even if it is short-lived. The realization is also good for an independent game, with beautiful animations, art direction and memorable music. Count on about 20 to 30 hours for the basic campaign, and 40 to 50 hours on average for the 100%.
