Rage 2 (PS4)
Despite having great gunplay and skill progression systems Rage 2 doesn't quite live up to the hype. With a repetitive world and uninteresting characters and dialogue it doesn't quite achieve what it set out to do. While still a fun game, it's definitely lacking in areas.
Blood & Truth (PS4)
SIE London Studio's follow up to London Heist improves on the great elements of their last game to provide what is without a doubt one of the best games available for the PS VR. Compelling story and great performances combine with gameplay which absolutely suits the VR platform to make this a must have game.

Compelling story and great performances combine with gameplay which absolutely suits the VR platform to make this a must have game.
Mortal Kombat 11 (PS4)
Incredible combat and another excellent MK storyline shine bright in the latest entry in the franchise but a heavy microtransaction focus bloats and overshadows what would otherwise be a brilliant game.
Days Gone (PS4)
With only a few things to set this apart from other zombie shooters Days Gone falls a little short. While it has plenty of content, it tends to be a little repetitive and uninspired but it definitely has its moments.
