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.
