Fated is a good VR experience, with spectacular activities, but the story ends really too quickly and too suddenly.


Uncharted : The Lost Legacy (PS4) (LEAD)

4.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2813-uncharted-the-lost-legacy-ps4
Even if the formula is still the same, without any significant new gameplay element, The Lost Legacy succeeds in being a very good stand-alone in the Uncharted universe. It's a gorgeous (probably the most beautiful PS4 game at the moment) and funny ride, and its loveable and very interesting protagonists surely deserve to get a another shot in a more consequent and surprising game.


LawBreakers (PC) (LEAD)
Project Bluestreak
3.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2817-lawbreakers-pc
LawBreakers is far from being a bad multiplayer FPS. It's a fun game with some good ideas, that can entertain you a lot. But there's nothing in it that feels really surprising or more appealling to players that already have plenty of choices in the genre.


Matterfall (PS4) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2816-matterfall-ps4
Very good-looking and enjoyable with is nervous, but easy to understand, gameplay, Matterfall fells great but doesn't offer so much to do and ends too quickly. But if you're a scoring addict, it's definitely for you.


Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 (PS4) (LEAD)

2.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2815-mega-man-legacy-collection-2-ps4
Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 reminds us why the Blue Bomber fell in the nineties. With only four titles included, the compilation runs short, especially when compared to the first one. Only hardcore fans will enjoy its many bonuses and challenges.


Sonic Mania (PS4) (LEAD)

4.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2812-sonic-mania-ps4
Sonic Mania is a solid game that reminds us how amazing in terms of design were 16-bit episodes. We can say this game is unarguably a new classic for the blue hedgehog and that it has to become a reference for the future titles of the franchise.


The End is Nigh (PC) (LEAD)

4.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2814-the-end-is-nigh-pc
The End is Nigh is as brilliant in exploration as Super Meat Boy was as a plateformer. More and more challenging through the entire game, it offers a great feeling of accomplishment once finished properly.


Tacoma (PC) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2809-tacoma-pc
Tacoma is a rightful heir to Gone Home. Exploration of the station, with the possibility to learn about the crew through holographic projections, makes us feel we are in a very lively place and the main story, that wants us to think about capitalism and I.A.'s future is captivating, even thought the experience is quite short.

The pillars of the Earh is a medieval ode. It is a true artistic and narrative success that captivates your attention and immerses you in a truly enchanting Middle Age era.

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2807-batman-the-telltale-series-the-enemy-within-episode-1-l-enig
Gameplay and production-wise, Telltale Games doesn't reinvent the wheel with "The Enigma." But what the studio does, it does well. The game tells a new story that can grab the attention of both old and new fans of the Batman. Let's now hope that the following episodes will be as interesting.

Hellbalde : Senua's Sacrifice is a Hel of a game. A gorgeous, scary, crazy, oppressive and unique experience with a great setting and story, different and loveable heroin and some interesting gameplay mechanics. Maybe the best surprise of summer 2017.

Oni training, Devil Training, ONITORE, Brain Age Concentration Training
3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2806-l-infernal-programme-d-entrainement-cerebral-du-dr-kawashima
The elaboration of exercices intended to improve brain capacities is not an easy task, but it gets even more difficult to make these fun as well with a focus on the (hard)working memory, because of the multiple distractions from our hyperconnected world. Thanks to a playful tone, an adaptive challenge and a wide selection of cleverly designed activities, Brain Age : Concentration Training successfully keeps the experience interesting, but also gratifying. Despite some persistent handwriting recognition issues and the rather large amount of recycled games, this devilish episode shall amuse our minds, an indubitable benefit, intellectual empowerment debates notwithstanding.

If you only consider its narrative, art direction, music and lore, Pyre is absolulety gorgeous. But its "combat" mechanic just doesn't succeed in being totally fun.

Miitopia (Nintendo 3DS) (LEAD)

4.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2801-miitopia-3ds
Miitopia may seem like a simple, artificial RPG simulation with Mii, but the humoristic narrative tone underlined by such absurdly customizable protagonists suggest to take some distance from the deceptive classicism of this quest, that reveals an ironic look at the genre. The focus on the relationships between these avatars, their freedom in combat along with the randomness of the gameplay elements add life to the whole experience, creating a special position for the player, neither actor nor spectator, yet deeply involved. Whether it's considered as an introduction to RPG or a satire, Miitopia doesn't lack character, and wonderfully embodies the role.


Hey! Pikmin (Nintendo 3DS) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2800-hey-pikmin-3ds
Like a herbarium, Hey! Pikmin is a conscientious, wonderful, tactile, yet flat transposition of the series' singular gameplay, mostly preserved along the way. While some depth, even life was lost in the process, this lateral perspective lets Captain Olimar explore the vertical dimension of this feral world rather quietly and cleverly, carrying its delicate ecogical message to new heights as well.


Splatoon 2 (Nintendo Switch) (LEAD)

4.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2798-splatoon-2-switch
Splatoon 2 keeps everything that worked in the first episode to deliver a strong but somehow light sequel. Fortunately, the Salmon Run mode seems new enough to bring back the fun, as this cooperative option took us by surprise. Fans will love, haters gonna hate, but Splatoon should benefit from the Switch phenomenal success to increase its fanbase.


Serial Cleaner (PS4) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2797-serial-cleaner-ps4
Serial Cleaner is engaging (and laughably gory) stealth game with an awesome atmosphere, easy to pick up and play. Too bad it lacks variety to feel great from start to finish.

Joyful, inspiring and darker than the previous chapters, Closure is a good conclusion to an elegant narrative experience.

4.0 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2794-final-fantasy-xii-the-zodiac-age-ps4
Final Fantasy XII : The Zodiac Age is a beautiful remaster which makes us love the game even more. Thanks to the second job addition, the fast forward rhythm or the magnificent re-orchestration of the original soundtrack, this version deserves a run, wether you already finished the original game or not.

Micro Machines World Series succeeds in some areas, as the controls has been nicely revamped and the Elimination mode works fine and is fun... But for the rest, this game lacks so much content (modes, challenges...) we couldn't believe it!


Diablo III : Le retour du Nécromancien (PC) (LEAD)

3.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2790-diablo-iii-le-retour-du-necromancien-pc
The Star of Diablo II is coming back in Diablo III. Still fun, still cool to play, even if the price of this DLC may slow down your enthousiam.


Friday the 13th : The Video Game (PS4) (LEAD)

2.5 stars
http://www.gameblog.fr/tests/2789-friday-the-13th-the-video-game-ps4-xb1-pc
Friday The 13th has a good gameplay concept, but it still disappoints. Counselors' gameplay is quickly redundant, and embodying Jason is cool but too occasional, but above all the game seems really far from being finished, and that's quickly frustrating.

Crash Bandicoot fans can rest easy, Vicarious Visions didn't deface Naughty Dog's work. The three games look better than they ever have and play just as good as they used to. The NSane Trilogy is both fun and challenging and offers a good time to longtime fans of the original PlayStation's unofficial mascot. That said, people who didn't enjoy Crash Bandicoot games back in the 90s won't fall in love with the franchise thanks to this compilation.

Valkyria Azure Revolution is the spin-off no one was waiting for. Every component which made the Valkyria Chronicles saga so famous is absent from this bad "sequel". The graphics look awful on PS4, the casting is generic at best and its action-rpg mechanics are one of the worst we've ever seen in the last decade. Why would an Action-RPG make you pause the game every time you want to use a skill ? Why, SEGA ?

Pro Cycling Manager 2017 is a disappointment. It did not bring a lot of novelties and fans will have to wait next year to observe a real change. However, the game is pleasant thanks to the richness of the gameplay and the fluidity of his game engine.
