Resi 2 obviously is a pretty dark game, and HDR support really helps to bring out the contrast in light sources when you're dodging zombies and searching for ammo. It's a good-looking game without it, but HDR really adds something to the atmosphere of Raccoon City.

A game from way back at the PS4's launch, Resogun offers up some extremely good HDR. This is a game that's all about visual flair and flashy effects, and HDR makes all those crazy colours really stand out.

Shadow of the Colossus is one of PS4's best remakes, and this stone cold classic looks amazing -- especially with HDR active. The scarce landscape might be relatively bland, but light and shadow is really highlighted well here. You might need sunglasses for the light shimmer off Wander's sword.

HDR amplifies Tetris Effect to the nth degree. This game is all about the audiovisual experience, and the increased colour range and contrast makes those incredible stages really pop. Clearing lines has never looked better than this.

Release Date: 10th May 2016 (USA) / 10th May 2016 (UK/EU)

Uncharted has been a visual benchmark in games for years, and it does so once again with Nathan Drake's final adventure. The stylised graphical style really benefits from HDR's increased colour range, leading to a globetrotting game that looks consistently gorgeous.
