Anyone know if HDR works in the game on PS5?

These days, when reviewers play a recent game and give it a 10/10 rating, they compare it to every game released after.
Even though these games are of different genera, there is still compression.

Are you reviewing the game? Cause if you wanted to praise GOW you could've just done that instead, dood. Minute into it and it just turns into a comparison, very unprofessional.

Ognipode576d ago

The reason for the comparison is that they are actually very similar games, released at a similar time for a similar price. The vast majority of the review focuses on Evil West and not God of War, so I'm not sure why you think it's just a comparison – far from it. Make no mistake though, it seems like God of War was very much used as a template for the game systems and structure, just more linear for the missions.

I get the feeling that many reviewers just dont get a game like this (or Gungrave, which also just released). These games arent meant to be anything but fun romps through their respective stories. nothing too deep or involving but lots of action, repetitive if it must be. Personally i love over the top games like this and gungrave and even bullet witch (another throwback game with similar tones). They dont take themselves too seriously and just provide some good old fashioned time wasting.

While not on the PS4, if you want a pretty imaginative and downright fun Cowboy game you should check out Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. Not only is it a great arcade FPS in its own right but one that has some Narrative Elements that interact with the Gameplay in a pretty surprising and novel way. Something a few of the AAAAAAAA games should be looking at in order to marry the Narrative with the Gameplay better.

The best part is that you can get it for a few dollars on GOG or STEAM during their sales.

Nice... I just bought Evil West a couple months ago but never opened it. Now I won't have to. And i hear good things about Plague Tale.

crazyCoconuts175d ago

Plagues Tail Req is good. One of my favorite Dual Sense trigger effects on the slingshot.

--Onilink--175d ago

Nobody Saves the World is amazing too, SkillUp did a great review of it

Samonuske175d ago

On the same boat with evil west still have it unopened.

FinalFantasyFanatic174d ago (Edited 174d ago )

I already bought Evil West on PC just recently, I've owned Nobody Saves the World for a long time, I really loved the first Plague Tale game, I was waiting for it to hit $30 on Steam before I bought it.

Considering the games, this is one of the best months we've had in a while.

thorstein174d ago

I have every one of these on my wishlist. This is great!

I loved the first Plague Tale.
