Another four excellent titles join the PlayStation Now video game streaming service today.
Recent shenanigans surrounding Google Stadia have again cast a shadow on video game streaming. The decision to shutter two studios and end first-party game development has done little to engender positivity towards streaming, despite the end product being rather good.
Sony, meanwhile, is just quietly getting on with things. PlayStation Now is in its seventh year of operation, and it continues to deliver a (mostly) reliable streaming service that is a perfectly acceptable way of playing games.
PlayStation Now’s game library is also remarkably robust, and the latest titles to join the service are all well above average.
InFamous: Second Son is an early PlayStation 4 hit and an enjoyable game to revisit following the Insomniac’s enormous success with Spider-Man. With its polished city environments and fun traversal, it’s easy to see why the studio was given responsibility for Marvel’s most valuable IP.
Bandai Namco’s Ace Combat: 7 Skies Unknown is a fun, full-featured dog-fighting sequel. The game doesn’t offer much in the way of surprises, but it’s well made, handles beautifully, and includes some fantastic vistas.
Up next is Superhot. The game is getting on a bit, but it remains a singular first-person combat experience that shouldn’t be missed.
The final game to join PlayStation Now in March is World War Z, a game we called a “riotous and frenetic – if shallow – action tower defence game.”
This month’s PS Plus lineup is also impressive, with Final Fantasy VII Remake headlining March’s free games.
