Rise & Rise is a lovely game. But a very punitive one, too. A lot of players will answer to its attractive visuals and soundtrack . But some of them will probably be a bit frustrated by the whole - not very long though - challenge, with a looooot of deaths for sure, they'll be facing. Still a great way to start 2017.

Despite some obvious technological flaws, this remake not only preserves all the proven and innovative qualities of Dragon Quest VIII, but also improves them in every possible way, crowning the Journey of the Cursed King with its most accomplished rendition. A blessing for the series' already best episode.

http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2667-batman-the-telltale-series-episode-5-ville-de-lumiere-xb1-ps
Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 5 gives players a satisfying ending to its first season. There are cool action scenes, each story arc gets its conclusion and the door is left open for a season 2. We just just wish the game had gone full "Bruce Wayne simulator" and had made players struggle to keep Bruce's super hero identity a secret. Also, it's high time Telltale fixed its games' technical issues. An adventure game in which almost half the lines aren't translated is just bad show.

Shantae looks lovelier than ever in high definition, swaying hips more voluptuously to boot. However the wonderful belly dancer lost some charm through her cartoonish traits, despite a wider array of powers. Inspired by the trends, particularly crowdfunding, Half-Genie Hero openly embraces an episodic structure, confining exploration meanwhile. A more straight(way)forward approach, but this episode falls a little short in comparison to the scale of the previous trilogy, unless upcoming DLCs prove otherwise.

At first, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk looks like one of the best manga adaptation ever developed... Beautiful, well polished and faithful to the original work of Kentaro Miura, we had high hopes for this game. Sadly, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk has nothing else to offer. Gameplay is dull and repetitive, the game in itself atrociously lacks meanigful content to have fun with (there are only 8 characters to chose from) and there are no multiplayer mode. This game feels like a huge step backward for the Musou genre.

Considering the massive challenge revealed slowly and surely through this fantastic collection of intriguing books, Picross 3D : Round 2 is definitely a new heavyweight champion among mindbrawlers.

Final Fantasy XV carries within it the stigma of a chaotic project. Its open-world is huge but quite empty. Its fights dynamic but sometimes confusing. Its story grandiloquent, but somewhat bumped. Often, the spectacular meets the frustrating, making it a resolutely cleaving title. But if underlining all this is legitimate, do not forget the essential: the four heroes of FFXV are among the most human characters in the history of video game, the last shot of the game making them immortal. Noctis, Gladio, Prompto, Ignis, thank you for this trip. Thanks to you, Final Fantasy is standing up again!
