State of Decay 2 (Xbox One) (LEAD)

3.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3055-state-of-decay-2-xb1
State of Decay 2 is an interesting "post zombie apocalypse life simulator" that forces the player to manage every aspect of a survivor's life. It's too bad that its story isn't very interesting. And what to say about those bugs : there are just so many of them... With better production values, State of Decay could have been a truly special game.


Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition (Nintendo Switch) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3053-hyrule-warriors-definitive-edition-switch
On Nintendo Switch, Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is pretty much the same action packed and repetitive beat them all it was on Wii U four years ago, with some improvements on the technical side and all the DLC. For Zelda or Muso fans, it's still a joyful way to blow off steam. but if you own it on Wii U or 3DS,there's only one feature you'll notice, split screen on portable mode.


Little Witch Academia : Chamber of Time (PS4) (LEAD)

2.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3051-little-witch-academia-chamber-of-time-ps4
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is the video game adaptation you were not expecting and won't care about if you are not an hardcore fan of the anime. The game is a weird mix between an old-school 2D side-scrolling and a PS2 era RPG but does not stand out in any of the genre it tries to tackle. However, only once you forget about the core gameplay and simply wander around the aisle of the Academia speaking with Akko's little friends, then you can really start enjoying Chamber of Time. Not for what it is, but for what it is not : a visual novel set within the world of Little Witch Academia starring the cutest hero of all time, Akko!


Fox n Forests (PS4) (LEAD)

3.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3048-fox-n-forests-ps4-xb1-switch-pc
Fox n Forests delivers a religious hommage to the 16-bit era platformers, with satisfying big sprites, pixelart backgrounds, but also loose collisions and a mad respawn system. Its numerous upgrades add a nice touch to the adventure, but serves as a weak excuse to revisit the same stages over and over. This is particularly infortunate, because Fox n Forests still has nice aces up its sleeve, like specific controls and shoot'em up stages.

Pillars of Eternity 2 is a very good sequel. It doesn't takes a lot of risks (muddled combat system, not enough serendipity in quests), but is still is an awesome lesson of how build a good RPG, with a fantastic writing and a beautiful art direction.

Dreamlike and original, Light Fall misses its point by being unsteady form start to finish. If the nice Shadow Core mecanics might charm you during the first moments of the game, its level design and very short adventure will not last long in the mind of every platformer addict. However, speedrunners might like the dedicated mode, which works nicely for those interested by emergent gameplay.

This new version of Dragon's Crown is a superb way to discover another Vanillaware gem, a great fantasy beat them all with some great arts - to enjoy in 4K if you own a PS4 Pro - and with up to 4 players. There are not many new things compared to the PS3 and PS Vita versions, but newcomers should really go for it.


The Forest (PC) (LEAD)

4.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3044-the-forest-pc
The Forest is one of the best survival game to date, especially because of its interesting story, inspired by horror movies like The Descent. Everything is here to remind you that the surrounding nature will do everything to destroy your morale and your life. Oppressive, stressful, but so exhilarating, The Forest is made for any survival games' fans, even if it suffers from weird physics and perfectible AI.


AO International Tennis (PS4) (LEAD)
AOI Tennis
3.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3045-ao-international-tennis-ps4
Like an ambitious rookie, AO International Tennis appeared promising, with alleged photo realistic looks and authenticity backed by an extensive data built AI. But Big Ant Studios' production can't live up to these expectations, at least for now, despite an interesting timing approach and undeniable efforts showed through the numerous updates. The lacklustre presentation, the shallow (though large) content and the erratic gameplay literally smash the whole experience, which still looks more like some distant imitation rather than simulation, hence suggesting the lack of a bold, expert direction overall.

Night in The Woods is a surprising narrative game whose childish graphic style hides a resolutely adult story, through the themes it addresses between two laughing dialogues of a rare quality.


A Total War Saga : Thrones of Britannia (PC) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/3041-a-total-war-saga-thrones-of-britannia-pc
A Total War Saga Thrones of Britannia is a good spin-off with very good ideas especially in the Campagn. We can almost feel a Paradox's touch in the wargame part, so it's a very good things (food system, resupply, etc). Unfortunately the technical part and the graphic engine are old and we are far from the graphic slap of the era of Empire Total War or Rome II. Licence need really change engine for bring more epic in battles.

Frostpunk (PC) (LEAD)

Frostpunk is a very good management game. Intelligent, dark and mature, its major flaw is its lack of replay value and the lack of impact of moral choices. Despite that, it's clearly a must have for all management/survival games lovers.

BattleTech has a lot of qualities. It offers a rich and deep universe and some quite interesting game mechanics. Refreshing in the tactical genre, it's also a real pleasure for micromanagements' enthusiasts. Sadly, visuals are not on par. It's not exactly what we'd call a pleasure for the eyes.

The Swords of Ditto delivers an accessible rogue-like experience served by beautiful artistic direction, and a soft difficulty curve quite rare for the genre. Thanks to a shared experience system, death is no longer tragic, but fans of rogue-likes will certainly find the adventure quite simple, mostly because of a basic combat system and too many random dungeons.

Ghost of a Tale is a game made with love and for lovers of beautiful things. The principles are quite generic (we look for keys, which open doors that unlock new possibilities...), but they are articulated with care and intelligence. If you like to think and play with elegance while having a good time, here is a title that should be played. Ghost of a tale is well worth it. Just to encourage the creation of other games of this caliber. The animators of the cinema get along well with video games !
