1. God of War
God of War is another one of the outstanding first-party games for Sony. Particularly on PS4 Pro, the game is absolutely amazing throughout its remarkable 50+ hours of supreme gameplay and it is by far the best game in the series to date. With an unbelievably satisfying combat system, absolutely compelling father-son story, and some of the most creative world design you will ever see, this game truly is an essential purchase for every PS4 owner.
i. Large amount of gameplay
ii. Breathtaking scenery
iii. Extremely satisfying combat system
iv. Combat depth through character upgrades
v. Engaging father-son tale vi. No load screens
i. Boss encounters somehow fail to impress
ii. The change of pace needs some getting used to or may even not be for everyone
iii. The ending does not really meet the expectations
The Witcher 3 has become the crown of the RPG; the game by which all other RPGs should be judged. First of all, this is the largest, most convincing world we have ever seen, and at the same time you are looking at a game with an engaging storyline, quests, and game systems that make that amazing world an incredibly captivating place to exist in. In some opinions, this is the GTA 5 of sorcery and sword, so you should probably be prepared to submerge quite a lot of hours into this game.
i. Captivating game systems and storyline
ii. Big, immersive, and coherent game world
iii. Gorgeously portrayed scenery and characters
iv. Filled with intriguing quests and activities
i. Loading time is quite long
ii. There is an occasional framerate drop
3. Far Cry 5
Ubisoft’slates entry in Far Cry series truly does not disappoint; situated in fictional Hope County in Montana, you find yourself up against Eden’s Gate – a mysterious cult that has enslaved the local population into mindless marionettes willing to carry out any whim they might have. At the front of this situation stands the Seed Family – a quartet of mad, gripping villains, who you have to defeat on this adventure.
Far Cry 5 features have all the same insane, over-the-top world mechanics of its forerunners, including outposts, hunting, and the return of the companion system that has not been touched since Far Cry 2. But for the first time in this series, Far Cry 5 provides a full character customization.
i. Spectacular action and amazing scenery
ii. Four dominant villains, each with their own great style
iii. More immersive than the predecessors
iv. Splendid animal allies and specialist
i. At times sticks a little too close to the previous Far Cry templates
ii. Sort of loses pace when the Seeds are not around
Horizon Zero Dawn is, simply put, the most gorgeous console game that has ever been made; it is a beautiful title which needs to be seen to be believed, and it is also one of the finest examples of HDR use in gaming. But there is much more that Guerilla Games delivered: a compelling story, told with a remarkably satisfying gameplay loop. As Aloy, you will take on a glorious open world with bow and arrows, and hunt everything that comes to site. It is an incredibly enjoyable game, and an absolute must-have for PS4 players.
i. Outstanding console game
ii. Engaging story
iii. So many things to do, it is virtually impossible to get bored
i. ‘Waypointing’ can be a little uncertain somehow
An absolutely incredible, PS4-exclusive game Bloodborne marks the spiritual successor to the Souls series by FromSoftware. It is challenging, consistently rewarding, and matchless ever since it first launched. If you enjoy games that present a high level of difficulty followed by unmatched triumph, this is a game you simply have to get.
i. Satisfying, consistent mechanics
ii. Smart level design
iii. Thick atmosphere
i. The style is a little obscure, which might come across as annoying
