Accompanying the release of the SWITCH OLED on October 8, Metroid Dread is immediately necessary as one of the best games of the year s platforms. We find Samus, the heroin of the franchise born in 1986 on the famous NES. Sent on a mission on a new planet, it is quickly considered as the prey of mortally programmed machines. We then try to survive in a real maze of levels, while the aliens look at the right moment to reflect on your carcass.
Mixing skillfully Action and Exploration, Metroid Dread is the excellent surprise that is not expected to have such a level of excellence. The game enjoys an exemplary gameplay that gives an impression of constant fluidity, with cleverly constructed powers and arming, to give the desire to progressed in this real labyrinth populated by aliens and murderous machines. A title that remains to be booked at Gamers seasoned, both the bosses give you a hard time. As old as old, it will be necessary to learn by heart their movements to achieve them. A new pearl on Switch.

Ah Yara! His beaches, his mountains, his jungle, his wild animals and these cohorts of soldiers at the dictator s boot Anton Castillo … Yes, we could spend a few days under the Yara sun. A small colorful, animated and necessarily explosive break when talking about Far Cry. Because, even if it is not without having to think about the Just Cause series with this Latino episode, the FPS (shooting game) developed by Ubisoft has accustomed us, over the episodes, to spectacular clashes on foot but also On board aircraft, helicopters, tanks and even, now, on horseback. The regulars of the series will not be lost with this sixth episode.
We have a good and less good news for them. The good: this new Far Cry 6 respects the letter the spirit of the saga. Actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian) really makes the job side Bad Guy while the many kinematic sequences develop a revolutionary narrative with dialogues as flowered as faces. The least good is that Far Cry 6 probably respects a little too much to the letter this spirit. As much else, eyes in the eyes, we are not going to Yara for the change of scenery, in terms of gameplay at least. No doubt more for the pleasure of having fun with a formula that, even if it does not change that little, remains always as effective. It must be recognized, hard to pick up when we multiply missions through a truly large open world. So, yes, you always have to take bases, kill lots of bad guys, collect plenty of objects, hunting lots of animals … Do we have fun? Yes without the shadow of a doubt. So, what more do you ask for?

There are no more Hot Wheels, which, since 1968, have parked in children s rooms (and collectors). However, Mattel has chosen to give them new routes to conquer in the middle of the video game. If it is not the first appearance of these reduced models on the consoles, Hot Wheels Unleashed is displayed as a boosted title at the Nitro for wild and fun races.
It s a good surprise. Because Mattel did not entrust this project to a dark zone studio, but in Milestone, famous Italian studio for its many mechanical sports simulations. And the know-how of the transalpine studio delivers a race game whose graphic appearance does not have to blush in the face of competition. Typé Arcade, with its controlled slippages and its crazy races on circuits leaving the beautiful part to the waterfalls, loops and teen, Hot Wheels Unleashed never leaves room for boredom. We also appreciate the particularly well done circuit publisher that allows young players as well as the great to leave free rein to their imagination. A sandbox game that turns out to be fun. That s all she is asked.
