Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review - A New Inevitably Needed DLC

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review - A New Inevitably Needed DLC

Two and a half years after its release, Dead Cells tirelessly continues to be updated. True "service game" of the rogue-lite, the title of Motion Twin does not have much to prove. This new paid DLC comes with a little bit of slack, and we are very happy to refill it.

Fatal Falls is also the second paid DLC of Dead Cells, after The Bad Seed. On the menu: two new "biomes", a new boss, a handful of enemies to discover, and new patterns to unlock. The program is also rather agreed and the quantity of novelties seems in all respects similar to what we already found on The Bad Seed. But the strength of this DLC is probably the inventiveness of these two new levels ("The Broken Temples" then "The Eternal Shores"), which are apprehended in an opposite way. First of all, I should say that these new environments are not accessible from prison, as was the case in The Bad Seed. You have to beat the Concierge beforehand (1st boss of the game) to be able to unlock access to the Broken Temples. Then comes a new moment in Dead Cells: at the end of this first level, access to the Eternal Shores is closed, blocked by two guards who bar your entrance. You have to think a bit to get through, which is ultimately not so common in Dead Cells, where reflexes are more often present than reflection.

Anyway, let's get back to this first level. The Broken Temples is a 100% outdoor and very aerial area, which gives pride of place to the platform. Fairly linear and horizontal, the level stands out on several points and I understand why this new DLC is called Fatal Falls. Because many traps can make us fall in the blink of an eye, while many platforms crumble under our feet. On the enemy side, the same story: between the crows which fly in a straight line and make us retreat a few meters and enormous knights capable of throwing their gigantic sword from a distance, everything is done so that the void opens up under our feet. Visually, however, this new area is very bright, with splendid backgrounds displaying fallen statues and ruined temples. Not necessarily very long to go and finally quite quickly repetitive in terms of level design (we feel that the procedural generation is more limited), The Broken Temples remains one of the most original biomes in the game.

Fatal Falls
' only real flaw seems to be its relative stinginess when it comes to new unlockables. After several runs, I did not find anything transcendent except a few new costumes which remain above all aesthetic. A finding perhaps due to a certain dose of bad luck, but, on this point, The Bad Seed had been more satisfactory. Another negative aspect to note: on Switch, the Broken Temples area is not always very fluid, especially when a lot of traps and enemies are on the screen.

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review, the conclusion

Those who have already sanded Dead Cells and want more have no real reason to miss Fatal Falls. For the price of a couple dollars more, they will enjoy an ultra-fast action, through two levels as successful as they are different. Maybe I would have liked a little more craziness in the level design and more new loot, but Fatal Falls brings just the right amount of quality content to dive back for a few hours.

Atelier Ryza 2 Review, A Worrying Shift For The Series

With no less than half a million copies of Atelier Ryza shipped worldwide, I managed to give a critical size to the latest from that series. But great success does not come without great responsibility. The first having departed from many totems of the franchise, I was entitled to expect a certain number of investments to fill the gaps. but, It is not the case. The first thing that I hope very much by starting Atelier Ryza 2 is to finally be rid of the hopelessly candid atmosphere of the first game. Unfortunately, it's worse. I begin Ryza's new adventure when she receives a mysterious black egg. Left to perfect her alchemist skills in the capital, she thus attends the birth of a mysterious little creature called Fy. In parallel, Ryza reunites with Tao, his childhood friend. A model student in the history of antiquity, he gathered all the rumors and legends of the surroundings. The call of adventure is felt and the two rush into the ruins and other lost civilizations of the re

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

Noita Review - Game Of Exploration And Experimentation

A true game-world, this little brother of "Spelunky" pushes simulation so far that it manages to make people forget that there is a creator behind the creation. A year ago, after spending twenty-five hours on a working version of Noita , it seemed clear to me that it was, already as it is, one of the best games of the year 2019. Version "1.0", that is to say, a priori definitive is available since October 15 on PC and confirms us in the idea that it could also be one of the games to remember from the year 2020. Brilliantly unpredictable game and yet obeying very precise physical rules (those of our world), a fascinating blank page stretched as much to the explorer as to the alchemist in us, Noita in version 1.0 is still as stunning as it was a year ago. Let's just add that it has since been enriched with many new magical effects with which to tinker, new segments of the world to visit, and new wands (like the formidable and almost too powerful ones that cause a
