• Killzone: Shadow Fall

1. Killzone: Shadow Fall

As a graphical showcase for the PS4, Killzone Shadow Fall fulfils its aim admirably; as a hardcore multiplayer monster to get the next-gen servers buzzing, it could well service those with FPS in the blood and maps on the mind; as a big blockbuster launch title, this is as big and blockbusting as the PS4 gets right now.   

Yet as a slab of next-gen interactive entertainment, Killzone Shadow Fall left us a bit cold. Unnecessarily fiddly controls, confusing signposting and a story that's becoming increasingly forgettable the more serious it takes itself contribute to a stylistically showy game that can be difficult to engage with.  

Once multiplayer is live in the UK, we'll see how it stacks up further, but for now we found ourselves enjoying the gun-packed, visually sumptuous meat at the campaign's middle, but not so much the precariously structured, implausibly plotted, poorly flagged-up sandwich constructed around it.

If you're looking for the best PS4 games for your shiny new console, you're in luck. We've compiled the ultimate PS4 games list, so you can choose the perfect titles, hot off the shelves.

Along with a brand spanking new console, Sony lifted the lid of a raft of new partnerships, games and IPs planned for the next generation, with software bigshots such as Bungie, Blizzard and Capcom all along for the ride. If you've checked out our lowdown on the PS4, and your appetite isn't sufficiently whetted, this list of expected games should have you rescuing your jaw from the floor.

The countdown to release has well and truly begun, especially now that the Playstation has gone on sale across the pond in the USA. In no time at all we'll be fixing up our shiny new consoles to our home TVs, getting ready to dive into that first taste of true next-gen gaming. The games already announced cover loads of genres, from the typical FPS, to the more unique indie and platforming titles. What will you play first? Now that is the tricky question.

Here at T3 we've managed to get our gamer loving hands on a PS4, putting it through its paces and getting really stuck into a bunch of launch titles. Check out our Killzone: Shadow Fall review, Knack review and Resogun review, along with our in-depth PS4 review: hands on and our next-gen showdown. Plus, if you’re not completely won over the PS4, why not brush up on your Xbox One knowledge with our best Xbox One games feature.
