Some fantastic titles are landing on the PlayStation store this week. If you’re a gamer on the look-out for your latest fix, take a look at our round-up of the best additions below.
Yakuza 5 Remastered: Feb 11 – £19.99
Landing on the store today, Yakuza 5 remastered is well worth re-visiting. The original game released in Japan in 2012, before an English version was released in 2015.
Now, you can get your hands on this re-master, taking players deep into Japan’s criminal underworld.
One note here is that the story can seem a little opaque to gamers who are unfamiliar with the series. The game is still great fun though, with satisfying combat, multiple playable characters and an exciting world to explore.
Our reviewer, Jade King, said of the original UK release:
“The compelling story, brutal combat and original characters come together to create a fantastic crime thriller, complete with a branching narrative that always surprises. Not all of its elements gel together as well you might hope, but there is so much here, it’s hard to feel disappointed. Also, if you can’t afford a holiday to Japan, this is probably the next best thing.”
Dreams: Feb 14 – £34.99
On February 14, PlayStation store gamers will be able to dive into Dreams. It’s eye-catching art style and varied settings are on show in the trailer below.
Made by British developer, Media Molecule, Dreams is inspired by the studio’s previous creation, Little Big Planet, but takes the creative ideas of that game a step further.
Dreams lets gamers build amazing 3D environments, characters and even cutscenes. Really, the variety available to players here is amazing – take a look at the trailer to get a taste of the experience.
Darksiders Genesis: Feb 14 – £34.99
Darksiders Genesis takes players to Hell and back, literally, in an all-action RPG experience where players choose to take on foes as cheerfully named characters War, or Strife.
Take a look at the trailer below to get a feel for the action-packed RPG experience.
Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishments: Feb 10 – £32.99
It’s far from a perfect gaming experience but Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments gives gamers the opportunity to step into the shoes of the greatest fictional detective. Who doesn’t want to do that?
Developer, Frogware, has a nice eye for settings but lets itself down at times in terms of polish. Some animations are a little clunky and, without giving anything away, bits of the story work better than others.
Take a look at the trailer below to get an idea of what the game has in store. Be warned, this one might be for the Sherlock Holmes devotees as it lacks the finish of the triple-A titles many gamers are used to. It packs one or two really ropey action sequences as well.
Those are probably the highlights but some other games are making their way onto the PlayStation store too. Take a look below…
