PlayStation 5 – Helldivers 2

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – Helldivers 2 review

Helldivers 2 is the long awaited sequel to a game that was released nine years ago! In this time, the world of Helldivers has been relatively peaceful. Super earth had almost completely defeated the Terminids and as such, the Helldivers had been retired. Although the Terminids managed to begin colonising the planet again, leading to the Helldivers being brought back to fight once again against the Terminids. 

This game uses an awesome variety of weapons, as well as a totally unique gunplay style which together provides a really enjoyable gaming experience. When you land on the planet you don’t get overwhelmed by the Terminids instantly, yet they do build up if you don’t kill them quickly, which adds a level of pressure to get the missions.

The stratagems are also a fun tool that can be used to resupply your character, bringing back teammates or gain massively powerful weapons to devastate enemies and your teammates indiscriminately. The graphics in this game also look really good, there’s a clear art style they’re going for, whilst still having it look very realistic. And one of the most important things about this game is its multiplayer aspect, which both works well and fast so you can load up your friends or random players with great convenience. And at a price point of just £35, it’s a great game for a group of friends to buy and play together. 

The only problem with the game is sadly quite a prevalent one. The maps all feel really similar, and the missions have very little major differences between them. This means personally I couldn’t really play this game for more than half an hour at a time without the repetition getting to me. 

So if you want a new multiplayer game to play with friends, this might be that for you. But without a proper story mode or any real differences, it does become a little repetitive after a while.

This is a fun game that’s clearly inspired by the movie ‘Starship Troopers’, with a great multiplayer mode. Alas the story mode does become a little bit repetitive after time. But the Multiplayer mode is awesome!!!

PlayStation 5 – The Last of Us Part II Remastered

PlayStation 5 – The Last of Us Part II Remastered Review

After the success of the TV shows and subsequent resurgence of the fanbase, The Last of Us Part 1 was re-released in a newly remastered version in 2022. This was created for a newer audience, and as such was drastically improved in its visuals to use the full potential of the PS5. And because of this, it was only right they’d did the same for the sequel, That Last of Us Part 2 Remastered!

In the world of The Last of Us, a zombie apocalypse brought on by a mutated fungus, has sent the world into a dystopian reality where no one can trust anyone and there’s danger around every corner.

However there’s always a speck of hope, in the protagonist of the game Ellie who was immune to the infection.  And the only way that the cure could be developed was if Ellie sacrificed herself for the cause. Although her guardian (and protagonist of the first game) Joel wouldn’t have it, and instead killed all of the doctors and military in the hospital, basically ruining the world’s chance of creating a vaccine.

Fast forward Five years and people are looking for revenge! Abby captures Joel and kills him, whilst making Ellie watch. This quite obviously enrages Ellie who takes her girlfriend Dina and goes out to take revenge, creating a twisted cycle.

This game is an absolutely incredible. The gunplay in The Last of Us Part 2 works so well, with all of the weapons feeling balanced and easy to use, whilst still having room to improve using upgrades.

The upgrades that you can use for Ellie also feel so rewarding, allowing a high amount of customisation as there are many unlockable routes to go down when playing.

All of the actor’s performances in this game are incredible and pairing that with a great set of characters we’ve already grown to love, really allows for some tear-jerking moments.

And the story itself had me so engaged and wanting to keep playing every second I had the chance!

The original PS4 version of the game is multi award winning, which honestly speaks for itself. But what is important to comment on are the new additions that come with this PS5 upgraded version.

To start off, the graphics are beautiful. Now they don’t feel like a ridiculous step up from the original game, yet there is a noticeable difference so anyone who particularly enjoys using photo mode in these games will appreciate the upgrade.

There’s also 4k support and higher frame rates available. As well as this, there’s also more support for the dual sense controllers and a new survival mode. The no return survival mode is really challenging but fun, and gives you more ways to enjoy this game, even after you’ve completed it.

And finally, three levels that were cut from the original game are now featured in the remastered version making it a must own for the diehard fans.

Unlike Part 1’s remastered edition, this game isn’t really a new thing that you’d buy separate to the

original version, as the graphics were really good the first time around. But, as it’s only a 10 pound price tag for anyone who owns the original part 2 game, it does seem like a great purchase for any fans thirsting for more.

As for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to play it in the past, now you have a far better way to play an already incredible and iconic game release in all its remastered glory!!!

Youth #Gottit View:

It’s one of the greatest video games ever released, so its very hard to improve on that. But there is now a slightly tinkered with PS5 version for the die hard fans to own who want the best version of the game possible. And if you’ve never played either this or the first ‘TLOU’ game – where have you been hiding all of these years?!!! Call yourself a gamer?!!! Highly Recommended!!!!

One of the best PlayStation games of recent years has just become even better. Horizon Forbidden West is a huge game and beautifully constructed. If you’ve already completed the original game, ‘Burning Shores’ will be a much enjoyed extension to the adventure – Highly Recommended!!!

Wizarding World – Hogwarts Legacy review by Con

Youth #Gottit View:

If you’re expecting an action packed experience from the start, that’s not what Hogwarts Legacy is. This is the gaming experience Wizarding Word fans have been desperate for. Although this is a new story, it plays out in a similar way to the book and movie series, with what feels like total access to the surroundings of Hogwarts. Absolutely beautiful looking game – A must play for all Wizarding World fans!!!

Dead Space remake

Dead Space remake review

The much loved and highly feared horror game, Dead Space is back and with a brand new look!

Dead Space is a 2008 sci fi horror game made by EA, which focuses on the main character Isaac
Clarke. Isaac and a space craft of maintenance crew members head over to the USG Ishimura, in deep space only to crash land and become stranded. Any other time this wouldn’t be a problem, but unfortunately for them an alien parasite has found its way on board the ship and laid waste to all of the passengers. Now Isaac, along with his arsenal of weapons (various telekinetic abilities and his jet pack) must find a way off of the ship, and survive!

This game is an absolute classic and this new ‘remake’ has some really nice updates. To start with the obvious being the graphics, which have been majorly updated in a way that benefits the style of the game. Also, the ship is far more free roaming now, with many added side quests to enjoy. Along with this, Isaac now has natural voice lines to make it seem more authentic. All of these added extras make it a worthy upgrade purchase.

The major positives to the game are that the story is very cool and has moments of leaving you terrified and helpless. Along with this, the combat has a good level of difficulty. The upgrades have an interesting skill tree system that we don’t usually see, as well as a satisfying suit upgrade system. The gore in this game is really satisfying and definitely bound to ‘freak you out’, as well as the death animations being very creative.

However, this game does lack the high level of scariness compared with modern releases. The jump-scares don’t hit like other games and in general it craves a creepier atmosphere, leaving it lacking in some of the suspense. Similarly, the enemies don’t appear to be very responsive, or perform a challenge in anyway other there to be tough to take down.

I found the deluxe edition to be slightly lackluster in places, but there are many really cool cosmetics in the game for die hard fans.

The Dead Space Remake does feel freshened up, and it’s certainly an upgrade from the original. They’ve
kept a keen eye with a lot of the details and don’t cut corners which is really nice. Although if you’re looking for a horror game, this may not need to be at the top of your list compared to many modern releases. It’s still well worth owning though. And a great game to play.

If you’ve never played this game before, it needs to be played . If you’re a die hard fan of the original version, this is a must own for the collection to see the upgrades.
