After being the star of the Québecois music scene for 24 years (her first album was released in 1981), we finally have an up-to-date French-language best-of collection from Céline that covers her first success Ce n'était qu'un rêve from 1981 up to 2005 (previously unreleased tracks and a new duet with Il Divo).

The game is narrated by Rutt and Tuke, aka the SCTV McKenzie Brothers of moose (voiced by hosers Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis, eh?), who explain the rough idea of Brother Bear: brothers Sitka, Denahi, and Kenai live in the Ice Age Pacific Northwest. When eldest brother Sitka is killed by a grizzly while protecting Kenai, Kenai tracks down the bear and kills it against the advice of the shaman. As punishment, he is… Read more
