PS4 Game Reviews


7.5 Aquadine

 

So, first off let me say, coming into this review I knew absolutely nothing about Aquadine. I never heard from it, wasn’t on my radar or anything. Let’s check out the official description: After his mother was hospitalized for an unknown disease, Robin Liyun works as a part-time gondolier to make ends meet, but under an alias named Ciel. As he finishes giving tours one night, a mysterious voice lures ...

 

9.0 Two Point Campus

 

Two Point Campus (from the creators of Two Point Hospital) puts you in the shoes of running your very own college campuses. You get to make every decisioning from what classes you will offer, food options, entertainment for the staff and students and so much more in the simulation game masterpiece. I was a fan of Two Point Hospital a few years ago but did struggle on console a little bit with some wonky controls ...

 

8.5 Arcade Paradise

 

Welcome to Arcade Paradise, the 90’s-fuelled retro arcade adventure. Rather than washing rags for a living, you decide to turn the family laundromat into the ultimate arcade. Play, profit, and purchase new arcade machines, with over 35 to choose from, to build your very own Arcade Paradise!   This game takes the idea of playing retro inspired games but adds another layer on top of it to make it a little ...

 

8.0 Escape Academy

 

If you love the experience of solving riddles, puzzles, or an escape room; but really dislike people, moving around, and potentially getting sweaty, then Escape Academy might be just your kind of game. The narrative for Escape Academy is a little tough to follow and honestly one of the only detractors of this game. You start off in a simple enough escape room in a run down building but somehow fall down a great ...

 

8.0 My Universe – Green Adventu...

 

The latest entry in the My Universe games – best known I think for being well-crafted family friendly games that are easy enough to play for nongamers and young kids – have moved on to what I think is their greatest one to date with Green Adventure – Farmers Friends. Despite the complicated naming convention, the idea is pretty simple. The old tried and true story of you getting a run-down farm ...

 

8.0 Ape Escape (PlayStation 5)

 

Time travel, monkeys, a kid you really want to beat up – Ape Escape had it all. And now it can again on PlayStation 5. Thanks to the new PlayStation Plus release, the original PS1 classic has found new life, outputting at a higher resolution, with a handful of quality of life features and a trophy list. This is a great chance to relive the good old days or capture a monkey army for the first time. My only ...

 

7.5 Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition

 

Even the Blade Runner version of 2019 looks like a dream compared to 2022. No pandemic, no crazy politics – just murder robots and really bad pollution. Oh, and new coke. So visiting it in video game format for the first time in 20 years felt like it was going to be a real treat. And in many ways it was. This enhanced edition of the original PC point and click game was a labour of love for the developers…

 

9.5 TMNT Shredder’s Revenge

 

Growing up I was a massive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, and yes I mean the old show. I’m part of that generation, where we would get personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut and even bought the musical album they put out as well as the tour video…I had it all, tons of figures, bed sheets, and video games. The Ninja Turtle video games have always held a special place in my heart, especially the arcade ...

 

7.5 Dungeon Defenders: Awakened

 

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is co-op Tower Defence combined with epic Action RPG combat. Which to me definitely sounded like an odd blend for sure. Back in the day when I would do a lot more PC gaming, I would often really enjoy tower defence games, something about them was relaxing and almost therapeutic. This is not quite the same. While at it’s core foundation it’s definitely a tower defence, you ...

 

8.0 Sniper Elite 5

 

In the upcoming Sniper Elite 5, The award-winning series returns as Karl Fairburne fights to uncover Project Kraken in 1944 France. With enhanced kill cam, the genre-defining authentic sniping has never looked or felt better as you battle across immersive maps to stop the Nazi war machine in its tracks. Much like its predecessors Sniper Elite 5 brings the action in the most stylistic and brutal way it knows how. ...

 

8.0 Evil Dead: The Game

 

There have been a few attempts at Evil Dead games over the last few decades and as many asynchronous horror-related multiplayer games too. The stakes are high with the originally-named Evil Dead: The Game. Luckily, it’s an incredible time. It captures the feel of the films while also providing an enjoyable gameplay loop. Neither of those things were guaranteed. That doesn’t mean that it’s the ...

 

7.5 Trek to Yomi

 

Japanese stuff is really in at the moment. Yet the likes of Trek to Yomi is a rare gem – a love letter to the old Japanese films, and to that old way of life we know so well from books. It’s a masterclass is atmosphere and is one of the bars for indie graphics. It’s also not always a great game. In many ways, it’s that old indie complaint. Style should not make up for gameplay, and to ...

 

7.0 Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Sag...

 

The Lego games have been feeling a tad tired as of late. More than once I’ve jumped into a game wishing they would rebuild the franchise from scratch. You know – brick by brick. Enter Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It certainly looks different enough on the surface, but is it as transformational as long-time fans might have hoped? The simple answer is no. It’s decent fun – especially ...

 

8.0 Ghostwire: Tokyo

 

Ghostwire: Tokyo is finally here. The latest from Tango Gameworks, The Evil Wihin and The Evil Within 2 were terrifying in their own way, and while Ghostwire is a different experience, you can feel the similarities throughout. It is up to you to save Tokyo's population from supernatural forces - can you do it?

 

7.5 Submerged: Hidden Depths

 

Boat, climb, solve and explore in the beautiful ruins of a sunken world. A drowned city, crumbling tips of skyscrapers stubbornly standing above the waves.

9.5 Gran Turismo 7

 

The Gran Turismo series celebrates its 25th anniversary with the long-awaited release of Gran Turismo 7. The self-described REAL driving simulator is back and more stacked than ever before. We have never seen such attention to detail in a racing game before, and this one delivers on all cylinders.

 

9.5 Horizon Forbidden West

5.5 Aery – Dreamscape

 

Fly through people’s deepest desires as a bird. And, no, Aery – Dreamscape isn’t an adult game. Because it turns out everybody’s deepest desires are things like “be a pirate”, “visit the moon” or “get out in nature”. Not a single level begins with the phrase “hey, you know that girl from Friends?” Maybe that would have been a better game – its not for me to judge – but it would have been a ...

 

7.5 Chorus

 

Take control of Nara on a quest to destroy the dark cult that created her. Unlock devastating weapons & mind-bending abilities in an evolution of the space-combat shooter. Along with Forsaken, her sentient starfighter, explore ancient temples, engage in zero-g combat & venture beyond waking reality.

9.0 Skyrim Anniversary Edition

 

Skyrim first launched 10 years ago, so it feels rather odd to be reviewing it now on its third generation of consoles at this point, but here we are…. The game’s main story revolves around the player’s character, the Dragonborn, on their quest to defeat Alduin the World-Eater, a dragon who is prophesied to destroy the world. The game is set 200 years after the events of Oblivion and takes place in ...

 

7.0 Beyond a Steel Sky

 

27 years later we get a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky…The original came out in the hay day of point and click adventure games like Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, and Broken Sword. As an “old” man, these types of games have always had a soft spot in my heart. I do recall playing the original but it’s been a LONG time since I’ve thought about this game. Luckily you aren’t missing much in picking up the ...

8.5 Life is Strange: True Colors (Sp...

 

You can take comfort here knowing I am not going to give away any story elements here in this review. After all, that’s the main fun in playing the Life is Strange series, isn’t it. Life Is Strange: True Colors is a graphic adventure played from a third-person view. The player controls the protagonist, Alex Chen, to explore various locations in the fictional setting of Haven Springs and communicate ...

8.5 Far Cry 6

 

Far Cry 6 is finally upon us, after some delays and a huge marketing campaign that you basically can't escape, it is time to step into the land of Yara and go toe to toe with Anton Castillo (Giancarlo Esposito). As a fan of the Far Cry series for quite some time, I was eager to dive into a full game again after Far Cry 5. New Hope was ok at best but wasn't the full experience I was craving or looking for. Far ...

 

7.0 RiMS Racing

 

I’ve never played a racing game like RiMS Racing, and its core unique mechanic is both the thing that makes the game stand out, and is also the thing that sometimes make the game tedious to progress through. RiMS Racing is the newest motorcycle racing sim from French publisher Nacon and first-time developer RaceWard, from Italy. The core concept of the game is that it’s part racing sim, part mechanic sim. ...
