10 Best NEW PS4 Games of April, May & June 2015 (Q2) HD
Whatoplay presents the Top 10 PS4 games of April, May and June 2015. Our ranking is not a personal opinion. It’s based on a 1 to 10 score that aggregates gamers and critics’ reviews into a unique score called playscore. 10th in the ranking is Ziggurat. It’s a nod to classic FPS like Hexen and Turok. You play as a young wizard on a quest to test your magic skills. This is a fun and punishing roguelite. Levels are randomly-generated and filled with aggressive minions and bosses! The only way to survive is to keep moving! Every encounter is a hectic mix of magic, action and entertainment. And I’m sure you’ll play it again and again! A playscore of 8.7. In the 9th place is Project CARS. This is one of the most realistic racing sim today. It doesn’t have the variety of rides as the other big titles but it offers interesting choices — from trucks to racers.
Don’t get me wrong…it’s a tough game. Controls- handling, and customizations take a lot of time to get used to. But once you hit that right spot, oh boy. You’re in for one memorable racing experience! It has a playscore of 8.7. Number 8 is Broken Age. This is a lovely point-and-click adventure. It follows the journey of two teenagers as they seek to break the tradition with their lives. There’s nothing groundbreaking about it. But it manages to tick all requirements of a solid adventure game: It has an Interesting suite of characters, an engaging story, And, of course, head-scratching puzzles Plus bonus for the visuals — colorful and beautiful. It holds a playscore of 8.9. 7th in the list is Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. Remember Wolfenstein: The New Order? This is a standalone prequel to it. And it’s not quite like the original.
This time, you’re shooting at zombies. With some stealth challenges peppered along the way. It’s one fun game to play — filled with intense combat and creative arena designs. Unfortunately, The Old Blood is not as memorable as the first game. It’s good but not as good as I hoped. It receives a playscore of 8.9. Ranked 6th is Batman: Arkham Knight. This is how superhero games should be. Arkham Knight wraps up the series with a bang. It looks absolutely gorgeous on the PS4. Combat has improved. The caped crusader has cool new combos. And gone is the button-smashing. Finally, the Batmobile! But some parts of the game were less than stellar. Drone battles feels repetitive after awhile. And the villains seem lacking compared to The Joker.
It receives a playscore of 8.9. Number 5 is Mortal Kombat X. It needs no introduction. Mortal Kombat X is an excellent fighting game. The story mode falls short. But everything else is just awesome. Combat is highly-polished. Fatalities are as bloody as they get! (Just how I wanted it to be.) It looks really good. For me… it’s one of the best-looking games in the PS4. If not for the questionable micro-transaction, it would – probably – be higher up in this ranking. A playscore of 9.1. Fourth in the ranking is Bastion.
Now an indie classic. I’m not surprised that it’s this high up in the ranking. It tends do that in every platform it’s released on. This is a welcome addition to the PS4 library. Aside from the texture update, it’s exactly the same game. Bastion is a creative masterpiece. The visuals are stunning. The soundtrack a true gem! And, man, the narrator. That voice? I’m jealous. It earns a playscore of 9.3. In the third place is Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. Essentially, it’s last gen’s Dark Souls 2 with all addons and improvements. The visuals are way better: Sharper, more detailed texture.
1080p at 60 frames per second. It just looks fantastic! And it’s even harder than the original. Tougher monsters now man the early stages of the game. But who am I to complain. That’s what makes the Souls series’ the Souls series. A playscore of 9.3. Number 2 is Shovel Knight. Yeah, I know. This game shows up in our rankings’ like always? It’s just that good. Shovel Knight is a perfect homage to old-school 8-bit games.
But it’s also more than that. It expands basic side-scroller gameplay with: clever & unique level designs, very precise controls, interesting digging mechanics, and boss battles that will test your skills! So don’t be surprised if it shows up in other rankings. It really is a great game. It has a playscore of 9.4. And the highest-rated PS4 game of the last three months is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Speaking of surprises. Well, this one’s undeniable. Wild Hunt is the finest game to come out in the first half of this year. As expected, it delivered ”almost” flawlessly. The world of Witcher 3 is STUNNING. It’s easy to get lost…marveling at its beautiful, dynamic environment. It’s an adventure in epic proportion! With tons of exploring, fighting and a lot more to do… A playscore of To recap, here are the 10 highest-rated PS4 games of the April, May and June of 2015. And the 10 runner ups!
