STILL PLAY­ING

Des­tiny: Rise Of Iron PS4 While el­e­ments of the power curve ran­kle, our time with Rise Of Iron has be­come a good deal more en­joy­able now that we’ve reached the endgame, and can fo­cus our at­ten­tion on the ac­tiv­i­ties that will take us to the level cap. It won’t take long, but no mat­ter – it’s prob­a­bly time we got around to play­ing all those other games any­way.

Forza Hori­zon 3 Xbox One We found Play­ground Games’ re­plot­ting of the Aus­tralian south­east a lit­tle jar­ring – and we’ve only hol­i­dayed there. Pass­ing the con­troller to a vis­it­ing cit­i­zen of the land down un­der, we ex­pected them to be thrilled, but the sketchy ge­og­ra­phy, and a se­lec­tion of cars and music that’s hardly cul­tur­ally ’strayan, meant our guest turned away dis­ap­pointed. Thank­fully, the rest of us can en­joy, with bliss­ful ignorance, one of 2016’s best driv­ing games.

Jaz­zpunk: Di­rec­tor’s Cut PS4 The fun­ni­est game of 2014 is now the fun­ni­est game of 2016 with the re­lease of this en­hanced ver­sion for PS4, fea­tur­ing new gags and four­player splitscreen sup­port for the bril­liant Wed­ding Quake. Again, it ap­pears to have been rudely ig­nored, though launch­ing just as most PS4 own­ers have spent £350 on a VR head­set is an un­for­tu­nate piece of schedul­ing. Hap­pily, its comedic tim­ing is rather bet­ter – two years on, it re­mains a sur­real hoot.
