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

Disjunction Review - Not enough to blow your mind

It comes from Poland and takes place in a cyberpunk universe. No, this is not CD Projekt's latest behemoth, but Disjunction , a small indie game with much more modest ambitions by Ape Tribe Games . So put on your special “big pixel” cybernetic retinas, and try to survive the review that will follow. Like almost all cyberpunk cities, the New York of Disjunction is not quite the representation we have of a paradise on Earth: large-scale organized crime, turf battles between corporations, all of it. under the background of corruption, this is the daily life that will await our dear trio. Because you do not control one, but three characters, whose narrative lines will intersect as the scenario progresses, to update the distribution network of the Shard. It is a new drug spreading across the city, greatly threatening the future of the Big Apple.  And who says multiple characters say specific capacities: I also find a guy named Frank, ex-NYPD detective whose specialty will be rather disc

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

TOHU Game Review - A Soothing and Colorful Point'n Click

After the very stealthy Spirit Roots , a small platformer intended for mobile devices and also the studio's first game, Fireart Games gave birth on January 28, 2021, to TOHU . Still in 2D, exit the platforms and this time move on to the point'n click adventure, wishing to keep a cute and colorful paw. Sold for a cheap price, the indie title published by The Irregular Corporation is available in dematerialized form on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, which is a step forward for developers with regard to their previous creation. Does this extra step translate into success? This is what we will see together. I tested TOHU version 1.01 on PlayStation 4 Pro (rated version 0.99 on the title screen). The adventure was over after 6-7 hours of play. Planet fish alert On one of the many fish-shaped planets of an unusual galaxy, a mysterious threat arrives and sows destruction. In order to save the place and its inhabitants from dawning danger, a little girl and her rob

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 abl

Olija Game Review: Another Good Fishing For Devolver

It's been a few years since we know: the independent projects supported by Devolver are to watch like milk on fire. The fact that a certain Olija , in preparation for several years at Skeleton Crew , landed in the hands of the irreverent editor last summer necessarily makes you want to be interested. It's done. No regrets, because this is a game that does not take us too far. This is a story about a storm, and, about a shipwreck. But it is also the story of a scattered crew and about an abandoned captain who will try everything to get back home, with his crew. But for that, he will have to fight. Faraday, it is the name of this penniless fisherman who thought to find wealth in the Japanese seas, is found after being caught by the depths prisoner of a hostile country, Egremonde. The surf, or rather fate, led him to a curious compass that allowed him to get his hands on a singular harpoon. This weapon is his salvation. On the one hand, because the natives like the local fauna hav

Gods Will Fall Review - A Mixed Dungeon RPG With Good Ideas

Halfway between a Roguelite and a Dungeon-RPG, Gods Will Fall is an independent game that relies on the challenge and a fairly personal conception of progression to arouse the curiosity of players. I had the opportunity to try it in preview (and exclusively), here are my impressions about the game. I had the opportunity to play a beta on Steam with one of my friends. Given the difficulty of the title, I was able to complete several more runs afterward. Half of the content was also missing. Celtic guardians Inspired by films like Band of Brothers or games like Cannon Fodder on Amiga, Gods Will Fall features a group of Celtic warriors who are humanity's last hope. In order to put an end to the tyranny of the gods who demand uncompromising submission, they will have to defeat the ten divine tyrants by traversing equally numerous dungeons. We start our adventure after a shipwreck on an island that we can explore at our leisure and without risk. It is a huge, cleverly disguised hub wh
