Field Of Glory II Medieval Review - Already Over 12,000 Years Of Military History

Part of the origin of the Field of Glory miniatures game is all the documentation and research emanating from the Wargames Research Group (WRG), which has released sums on ways to adapt ancient warfare with solid rules and regulations. figurines, and on the other handbooks edited by Osprey Publishing focused on armies at all times, from a historical, social, economic point of view, well-sourced and with beautiful illustrations. Richard Bodley Scott is also the originator of the Field of Glory miniatures game in 2008. He did not limit himself to this period, as he also worked in the Renaissance period. Part of the Byzantine Games team, he helped design Pike & Sho t: Campaigns (2014) and Sengoku Jidai (2016). Using the same engine, the team also worked on adapting modes of warfare by combining units with a certain number of characteristics making them vulnerable or strong in the face of situations or units, with terrains ranging from open to difficult and which can disrupt the h

Airborne Kingdom Review - A simple and addicting desert crossing

The first title of The Wandering Band LLC studio, Airborne Kingdom had something to charm with its exotic allure and its particular artistic direction. Mixture of city-builder and exploration game, this indie title lets you roam the desert in complete freedom aboard a flying fortress of your own making.  Now is the time to see if this surprise at the end of 2020 is a good one or if, conversely, the experience is not as pleasant as we would have liked. So what I did, I played  Airborne Kingdom  on PC witch is also available on the Epic Games store using a publisher version.  The review was completed in about ten hours of play which allowed me to finish the campaign while taking my time.  Airborne Kingdom  was tested on a PC with 16 GB of RAM, an RX Vega 56 and an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 running at 3.40 GHz with the graphics settings adjusted to maximum. A dreamlike journey full of charm Necessary to turn around the port and let's talk about what is obvious: the artistic direction is obvi

Worms Rumble Review: A Battle Royale That Deposits But With a Little Weak Content PC PS4 PS5

In 1990, a young computer store worker, Andy Davidson, took advantage of his free time to program a tank fighting game. To stand out from the competition, and after discovering the Lemmings ' animations, the boy transforms his project and imagines a fight between worms. The concept would eventually evolve into Total Wormage before Team 17 studio founder Martyn Brown was won over by the idea and decided to make it one of the canonical works in his catalog: Worms . This Rumble episode is also timely to celebrate the twenty-five years of the license and take it in a surprising direction, far from its turn-based origins. In its early days, Worms was a cross between Lemmings and Cannon Fodder , mixing action and thinking, in a 2D environment. Very quickly, the title stood out with its pixel art characters, pervasive humor, and twisting animations. For years, the Team 17 team kept that feeling until they brought together the best of the license in a cult episode: Worms Armageddon (of

PHOGS! Review - A nice puzzle game that stretches too much

The first game from Bit Loom Games (a team whose members can be counted on the fingers of one hand), PHOGS! presents itself as a rather original puzzle game by its concept and its bias to offer a fully cooperative adventure. Now let's see what the title is worth. Please note that this review was made with the use of the Sony PlayStation 5 version using the backward compatibility feature. Most of the time, the adventure was a co-op, but the solo was also tested during my 8 hours of play. One doggo, two doggo? PHOGS! makes you play two characters, or rather one, well, no, two, well ... in short. You take control of two dog heads that share a single body with no actual scenario. In fact, you will simply go from thematic level to thematic level in which it will be necessary to accomplish various objectives to be able to move on to the next one. The title thus finally goes to the essentials by focusing on pure gameplay, even if the coating adds a little extra that will appeal to youn

Project Wingman Review - An Animated Flight Simulator

The desire to play a game that does justice to fighter jets is always matched by the reluctance to import a full HOTAS setup from Belarus. Are there any intermediate games that we can enjoy? Not really. But when it comes to Gen 4 arcade combat action, there's Project Wingman . The game takes place on our own Green Earth. But make no mistake - we're emulating Ace Combat here, and that means building incredible levels of animated nonsense, including Earth having undergone a massive tectonic upheaval 400 years ago. The reconstructed world is powered by geothermal energy - abundant in the Federation that has settled around the Ring of Fire. Cascadia, a nation best described as "the west coast has literally broken apart and is now a country," wants to secede. You are Monarch, the best mercenary in the Sicario outfit, and you are going through this mess for fame and money. For some reason, everyone still uses fighter jets designed over 450 years ago. The comparison to Ace C

Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond Review - Back To Basics ... But in virtual reality

After getting lost in the limbo of the modern military shooter, Medal of Honor returns to its origins, with a new episode, exclusively playable in virtual reality, deeply rooted in the past. This new “WWII” FPS does taste like a game from the 2000s. But that's not necessarily a fault here. You see, it's been more than 8 years since Medal of Honor disappeared from video game radars, with its last episode - Warfighter - of sinister memory. Rated 11/20 in our columns, Warfighter sort of combined all the problems of military FPS from the 2010s, which failed to extricate itself from the shadow of a certain Modern Warfare. After a well-deserved convalescence, Electronic Arts takes the license out of the closet, with a desire to return to the basics, that is to say to World War II. But there is a twist since Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond is a game exclusively playable in virtual reality, via the Oculus platform, but also on Steam.  At the helm is Respawn Entertainment , to

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Review: A Breath of Fresh Air Despite Some Flaws

After two long years of World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth , World of Warcraft offers itself a long-awaited new expansion with unrecognizable tunes. In Shadowlands , players leave Azeroth to travel not to another planet as they once did, but to the realm of the dead: the Shadowlands ! In this place where the dead live a second life, death is final but new allies, the Congregations, help the heroes to achieve their ends: to stop the madness in which Sylvanas has launched. New allies, new enemies but above all some new game mechanics: Yes, it still there, and it doesn't seem to be ready to join the Shadowlands of video games. The story of Shadowlands is a direct continuation of the events that took place during Battle for Azeroth . Sylvanas, who fled after wiping out Saurfang at the gates of Orgrimmar, ended the Lich King's reign by destroying the Helm of Domination. In doing so, she unleashed the Scourge but also broke the boundaries between the world of the living and of th

Genshin Impact Review: The Free-To-Play RPG With Disproportionate Ambition

A real tidal wave with more than 17 million downloads in the span of 4 days on mobile devices alone, Genshin Impact is making a lot of noise. Normally abused for its flagrant similarities with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, miHoYo's free-to-play RPG still has its share of detractors. After several dozen hours of play, so I will give you my opinion on the most ambitious Gatcha in China. It is rather rare that the terms AAA and Gatcha are associated. Yet 300 people and $ 100 million have been invested in this ambitious project. The least we can say is that it is felt, but above all, it is visible. After a quickly dispatched introduction, the player is unleashed on plains stretching as far as the eye can see. Unfortunately, the PS4 version of this RPG shows regular drops in the framerate. Strangely, these drops do not seem to be caused by the overload of screen elements and occur randomly. Hopefully, future patches help bring more stability to the Sony console experience. O
