Cyber ​​Shadow Review: The Old School Ninja With Cyberpunk Sauce Hits Hard!

The best soup is made in a retrogaming version. While not everyone clings to this hackneyed adage, it has to be said that the sheer pleasure of instinctive gameplay like it was in the '80s has never aged a bit. The indie game scene has understood this and Cyber ​​Shadow is coming to play the 200% nostalgic card ... to our great pleasure! NINJA GAIDEN, VERSION 2021 At first glance, Cyber ​​Shadow seems to want to be to Ninja Gaiden what Shovel Knight was to Mega Man. A powerful tribute that is "just like the times", while allowing itself as the only concession to ignore technical limitations. Understand by this that while the aesthetic remains "8bits", the number of colors and sprites displayed on the screen still benefit from the current performance of the machines. Thus, Cyber ​​Shadow offers all the good sides of old school gaming without losing itself in blind nostalgia. This titanic work of pixel art was carried out by a small team called Mechanical Head

Hitman 3 Review: An Excellent Conclusion For The World Of Assassination Trilogy

The Agent 47 adventure reboot that began in 2016 is drawing to a close ending. The “ World of Assassination ” trilogy concludes with a third episode soberly titled Hitman 3 which follows in the footsteps of its predecessors. For nearly five years, IO Interactive Studios have been working to return to the roots of the " Hitman " franchise, the meticulous and thoughtful murder, and leave the action in its simplest device in the locker room. Will this video game's with the most formidable assassin able to end his own story with panache? That's what we will find out in this game review. THE KILLER The script has only very rarely been a central part of the Hitman experience.

MXGP 2020 Review: Great Sensations On PS5

Milestone Interactive has not been unemployed at the end of the last decade, synonymous with the end of the console generation. Between Ride , MotoGP , Monster Energy Supercross, and MXGP , the Milanese studio has produced more than a dozen titles in 3 years since 2018 (!). I was impatiently awaiting the first baby adapted to a next-gen console, I am talking about the brand new PS5 and its DualSense controller. 2021 offers us this first draft with motocross and MXGP 2020 , already published on PC and old-gen mid-December. In fact, this is the sixth episode dedicated to the MXGP championship, fifth in five years, the latter can face some obstacles despite a real feeling of technical progress over time. Developed each season with little time between each title, stagnation lurks and could stain the new beast from Sony. I was also expecting a smooth technical transition first and some surprises in the content, quite dull in the last installments. A BRAND NEW ENGINE CALLED PS5 And from t

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition: A Reminder Of A Beat'em Up Classic

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game celebrated its 10th anniversary in the summer of 2020. And what better way to blow out your candles than to return to the ring in a “Complete Edition” intended for recent machines? This Beat'em Up published by Ubisoft and Universal Games was originally an adaptation of the Canadian comic book "Scott Pilgrim" by Bryan Lee O'Malley, a comic book also adapted into a film the same year and directed by Edgar Wright. But back to the main subject, has this classic 2D fight, which the shops have given up in 2014 for reasons that remain unclear, has it retained all its splendor? Note: The review of the "Complete Edition" of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game focuses on the technique, the content as well as the additions specific to this 2021 version. THE FIGHT COMES FOR US No need to go into detail on the qualities and the few flaws of the original game. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was a generous 2D Beat'em U

Unspottable Review: A very effective party-game where you have to hide in the crowd

In video games, we often complain about predictable AIs, which run around in plain sight and sometimes find themselves in the middle of the battlefield. But in Unspottable , this simplicity of mind is your greatest strength. The title is a multiplayer-only party game where you have to blend in with a crowd so as not to be flushed out by other players like Hidden in Plain Sight. The difference that the French of GrosChevaux deliver a less raw game, with a convincing realization, and above all, tons of ideas to make the games memorable. Before going any further, an important clarification: Unspottable is an exclusively multiplayer title (no single player mode) that offers games only locally on consoles, that is to say on Switch and Xbox One (release scheduled for January 21, 2021) and on PS4 (no release date yet). On PC, it is possible to work around this “problem” by using the Steam Remote Play or Parsec. Either way, the game can accommodate up to 4 players. According to the developers
