Can the footie sim de­liver the sport to match the licences?

Five years ago on 28 Novem­ber Sony launched PS4 in the UK. In an­tic­i­pa­tion we’re re­play­ing some of the key launch-day games to find out which stand up to the test of time

Launch-day line­ups have al­ways been a hard sell, but hid­den away are gems that never dull. PS1 shone with WipE­out and Ridge Racer, PS2 wowed us with SSX and TimeS­plit­ters, and PS3 had Re­sis­tance: Fall Of Man to pro­mote its on­line fea­tures and power. When it came to PS4 we had a broad mix of shoot­ers, sports sims, rac­ers, and, well, Knack.

The OPM team set­tles down to re­play a se­lec­tion of the key ti­tles from launch – so do they all still hold up five years later?…

Kil­l­zone Shadow Fall still has an ac­tive – al­beit small – on­line com­mu­nity half a decade af­ter launch.
