Critique: “Digital Extremes has created something that is often fun to play, and given the price of the game, Warframe is worth a look if you want something different.”

ARK: Survival Evolved

Review: “ARK: Survival Evolved delivers a solid survival game experience and is one of the best offers of the moment. Especially on consoles. Know however that it takes a whole new flavor once played to several.”

Payday 2

Kevlar. Moreover, the various means of completing the mission and the random elements of each level together offer a more than honorable replay value.”

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

Critique: “Rainbow Six Siege has the effect of a bomb, sometimes literally, but it is handicapped by its progression system and a little bit also by its lack of content.”

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Critique: “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fully deserves its status as a new opus in its own right. In addition to an acceptable graphic redesign and an unparalleled fluidity, this episode achieves a delicate synthesis between its decried predecessor and the original mod so adulated.”

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

Critique: “A phenomenon that is Twitch, a rising star in the competitive scene, an excellent title that provides sensations of tension and adrenaline rush that very few games we had given previously.”

Dota 2

Critique: “the game experience on Dota changes every day — some nights are going to be fun, while others are going to undermine your morale — but there are few games worth as much time spent on as this one. Those who invest in Dota 2 will find many moments of happiness in this new immaculate version.”

Grand Theft Auto V

Review: “Rockstar’s title is a potpourri of good ideas, reinventing the open world and narrating with diabolical precision the destiny of three vile scoundrels in a huge virtual Los Angeles. As for the multiplayer, GTA Online offers a real extension of the solo experience and creates a new genre subject to evolution.”
