Nioh 2: Complete Edition Review - The Demanding Title Arrives On PC With Its Three DLC

After a first Nioh welcomed with open arms by the critics, Team Ninja is back with a second episode, available from March 13, exclusively on PS4. In the process, the team shelters William Adams, the hero of the previous installment, and offers the player to create his own samurai. This is obviously not the only novelty of Nioh 2 : more enemies, more powers, and more environments, the title is presented as the sequel par excellence. And even if we have already tasted its sharp and sharp fights, Team Ninja easily manages to bring us back. Nioh 2: Complete Edition on PC, how does it work? Much like the first episode before it, Nioh 2 is touring the PC after its release on PS4 as a Complete Edition. A version that includes all the title's DLC released so far, namely The Disciple of Tengu , Darkness in the Capital , and The First Samurai . In addition to new objectives and narrative arcs, the whole new video game adds a new difficulty mode as well as a new weapon, enough to improve t

Little Nightmares 2 Review - A Game Below The Expectations On Switch

In line with the cinematic platformers of Playdead , Little Nightmares , the first of the name, has managed to find its audience. With a singular universe, this experience, not free from faults, was a classic adventure in its structure, but very effective. What about this second installment you may ask me? Did it learn from the past to make his grievances disappear and outdo his elder brother? Let's find more. A LOT OF NOISE FOR NOTHING? From the first moment, the legacy of the studio behind Limbo and Inside is more obvious than ever. The adventure opens with a gloomy forest from which our new hero, dressed in a paper bag to hide his face, must extract himself. Trunk rolling down a slope threatening to flatten us, wolf traps, crows, a chase sequence where the hero will have to hide in gray areas ... A known imagery and situations already encountered by anyone who has touched the titles of Playdead . From a strictly narrative point of view, I was disappointed by Little Nightmares 2

Turrican Flashback Review - A Light Compilation For An Exceptional Series

Shaped by Manfred Trenz and the Factor 5 team on behalf of Rainbow Arts , Turrican is one of the most iconic series of the early 1990s. Mixing the mechanics of a Metroid with those of a run & gun, the title born on Commodore 64 and Amiga has forged an excellent reputation among fans of the genre. Strikingly beautiful on release, the game was noted for its edgy gameplay and exceptional Chris Hülsbeck soundtrack. While the two Turrican Anthology compilations should arrive in the coming weeks (they are in advance on the Strictly Limited site), ININ Games is taking the lead with this Turrican Flashback . Bringing together four episodes, it is available on PlayStation 4 (PlayStation 5 compatible) and Nintendo Switch and will bring back fond memories to those who roamed the Alterra colony three decades ago (for rejuvenation, it's a gift ). However, we would have liked the compilation not to be limited to 4 games and a few filters ... Turrican , what's that name? If you have no

Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood Review: A Fallen Werewolf

Role-playing games are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for studios and publishers who rarely miss the opportunity to adapt these acquired franchises to the cause of video game fans. The Baldur’s Gate and Shadowrun saga or Cyberpunk 2077 to name a few, the examples are legion. Now it's the turn of Cyanide in collaboration with Nacon to lend themselves to the exercise and to get their claws out. Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is the Action-RPG adaptation of the eponymous role-playing game. The wolf, after a long hibernation, is about to emerge from its den. THE PACT OF THE WOLVES Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood takes for framework a contemporary universe close to ours in many ways, and yet so different. On this alternate Earth, the balance of power is in jeopardy. The Wyrm, the evil incarnation leading the world to destruction and chaos, is gaining ground. Faced with rampant industrialization, a direct consequence of human activity, the Dark World is on the

Destruction AllStars Review - A PS5 exclusive that lacks ambition

At the end of the 90s with Vigilante 8 and Destruction Derby in mind and at the beginning of the 2000s, I think in particular of Twisted Metal : Black , Cel Damage or even the unknown 187 Ride or Die , the productions putting the player in an arena at the wheel of a motorized machine ready to do battle were legion in the video game landscape. It must be said that this type of game, often accompanied by a mode playable up to four players, promised frenzied games with friends on the same sofa. This once-popular recipe has unfortunately fallen into oblivion with the advent of so-called "HD" consoles with the Xbox 360 in 2006 and the PlayStation 3 in 2007. Despite a considerable loss of speed, a few titles have tried their hand at exercise. during this period, but in vain, thus leaving a gaping hole to be filled. This is where Destruction AllStars , the latest from Sony Interactive Entertainment, comes into play. Destruction AllStars , the ugly duckling of the PS5 Showcase fo

Control Ultimate Edition Game Review: Supernatural TPS Lands On PS5

In the dark clouds of the Hiss, the Next-Gen version of Control has caused much ink to flow. Offered at a high price even to owners of the original game, it caused a noisy wave of protest at a time when Smart Delivery is being emulated. Far from this problem rooted in our harsh reality,  Jesse takes off on the new consoles on the market. With the same question on everyone's lips: Was the wait worth it? Control finally arrives on the new consoles with two display modes, performance, and graphics, which can be activated on the fly in the options. As usual, the performance mode allows you to play with a very pleasant fluidity thanks to a framerate at 60fps, while the graphics mode adds raytracing for a framerate at 30fps. DualSense in the hands, it is obviously very pleasant to walk the aisles of the Office with a nice fluidity, especially since the title sometimes requires good reflexes as well as a certain precision in aiming. Raytracing enabled in graphics mode, while pleasing to t

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

Everspace 2 Review: Space Travel Accessible To All?

Space exploration has fueled many video game fantasies. If the ship piloting games are numerous, they are mostly focused on simulation. Everspace 2 takes the opposite view from Elite Dangerous and other Star Citizen by offering an accessible experience. By abandoning the Rogue-Like basics of its predecessor, the title of Rockfish intends to allow the first person to explore the infinity of space. Should you fall for this early access? Well, let's find more about it. IMPORTANT: About early access testing This Everspace 2 review assesses the strengths and weaknesses of Early Access and does not represent a definitive product yet. This test is valid for its date of 01/22/2020 and will have to be revised as the game evolves, before the test of the final version. FROM ROGUE-LIKE TO EXPLORATION IS THERE JUST ONE STEP? Announced at Gamescom 2019, Everspace 2 surprised its world by abandoning the Rogue-like in favor of a freer structure. This bet was risky, as it takes great freedoms
