  • Release date – July 3, 2020
  • Genre: Action Adventure Shooter
  • PlayStation Universe review score: 9/10

Marvel’s Iron Man VR succeeds wildly in its mission to put players into Tony Stark’s iconic suit of armor. Flying and doing battle is amazing, and even more amazing is the way that players are immersed in Tony Stark’s narcissistic psyche. With story-telling without peer in the VR space, and amazing battle sequences, Iron Man VR verges on being the perfect VR game. Only the ridiculous load times are preventing this from being the greatest of all time.”

Ghost of Tsushima elevates the existing open world adventure template with a fantasy-free Samurai adventure that deftly pays loving homage to the Samurai cinema of old. While your mileage may vary according to your level of open world fatigue, Ghost of Tsushima undoubtedly remains not only one of the best open world romps money can buy and a stunning PlayStation 4 exclusive, but also Sucker Punch Productions finest effort to date.”

“Three years on from its original release on other platforms and there’s still nothing like Cuphead.

Pistol Whip is a triumph of game design.

Miles Morales is a great game on PlayStation 4 just as it’s a great game on PlayStation 5. The difference between the two when it comes to performance is marginal at best and if you dealt with issues of its predecessor like long load times you should be able to handle them here as they are much improved.
