Shadow of the Colossus is available on three generations of PlayStation hardware, but this latest version is the best. The splendid facelift here can't disguise some of its creakier gameplay, but if you've never played it, there's never been a better time to tackle Team Ico's signature game.

6 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo Sport
Nov 8, 2017

Gran Turismo Sport looks great, but a lack of content, some dodgy AI, and an always-online requirement see it limp into the pits. Still, how 'bout them interiors?

7 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport 7
Oct 12, 2017

Loot boxes make Forza 7 feel exploitative. This entry in the normally top-flight franchise is also hindered by audio issues and – on Xbox One – super long load times.

8 / 10.0 - Project CARS 2
Sep 26, 2017

Project Cars 2 makes a passionate play for the enthusiast end of the racing sim market. A wheel is damn near mandatory, but the gameplay rewards are huge – when spotty AI and bugs aren't confounding things, that is.

9 / 10.0 - F1 2017
Aug 28, 2017

F1 2017 is without a doubt the finest F1 game ever made, and a superb motorsport game as a whole.

9 / 10.0 - Horizon Zero Dawn
Feb 20, 2017

Guerrilla Games' punt on a new IP has paid off handsomely, as despite its silly title, Horizon Zero Dawn is a magnificent open world action-adventure that lives up to its hype.

6 / 10.0 - Steep
Dec 12, 2016

Steep crams the Alps full of activities, but its systems are either poorly explained or poorly implemented, or both.

8 / 10.0 - Watch Dogs 2
Dec 1, 2016

Watch Dogs 2 is an excellent sequel that ditches the earnestness of its predecessor, pumps up the power fantasy, and turns players loose in a vibrant and engaging city. It's one of the best open world games to come around in a while.

8 / 10.0 - Battlefield 1
Oct 28, 2016

Battlefield 1's campaign is thin as ever, but most will be on board for the multiplayer, which – while simplified compared with recent entries – remains practically peerless when it comes to delivering intense, large-scale battles.

8 / 10.0 - F1 2016
Aug 26, 2016

This is almost certainly the best F1 game from the development team thus far, and a real step up from last year. Codemasters has finally hit its stride in the racing genre, with some quality racing sim titles such as this and Dirt Rally.

Having exhausted my repertoire of adjectives for describing this game I've decided to keep it simple: Uncharted 4 is the best game in the franchise and – dare I say it – the best game on PS4. Whether you've been part of the series since day one or never played any of them before, it matters not – this one is absolutely worth taking the time out to sit down and enjoy.

MXGP 2 is a great example of how to take promising ideas, and then squander them all with terrible execution. There’s a decent motocross game in here somewhere, but it’s buried by technical issues like a fallen rider under mud.

9 / 10.0 - DiRT Rally
Mar 29, 2016

Dirt Rally is a tough but hugely enjoyable racer that easily eclipses its competitors and is likely destined for the rally video game hall of fame.

8.5 / 10.0 - Unravel
Feb 9, 2016

Unravel is a fleeting yet enjoyable experience, with great gameplay and production design. Experienced players may find it too easy, but it's a gorgeous blend of story and gameplay for everyone else.

Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo is a fantastic rally game with it's heart in the right place, but occasional technical woes stop it from reaching its full potential.

8 / 10.0 - Just Cause 3
Dec 1, 2015

Just Cause 3 understands what the essence of the series is – impressively chaotic sandbox action – and it duly provides mountains of it. Just don't expect too much from the story.

7.5 / 10.0 - Need for Speed
Nov 20, 2015

Need for Speed is an excellent racing title with a laid back attitude and plenty to enjoy – if you can get past a few of the glaring design choices that is.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a truly fantastic trio of games that are a mere rope swing away from perfection.
