Review: Star Wars Battlefront (PS4)

Star Wars Battlefront (PS4)

Yavin a good time

With many excellent Star Wars games committed to gaming history, it's unfortunate that the last five years or so have been a bit of a disappointment. A trend towards mobile games and titles targeting a younger demographic has left many yearning for a Star Wars game that can stand alongside classics such as TIE Fighter, Knights of...

Is the Force Strong with Star Wars Battlefront on PS4?

Share an opinion, you must

Our very own Alex Stinton is currently engaged in some rather rigorous Jedi training, but he informs us that he'll be using his newfound powers to bring you a review of Star Wars Battlefront as soon as possible.

Star Wars Battlefront's PS4 Bundle Looks Better in the Flesh

Sith sense

We've never been especially keen on the Darth Vader-themed Star Wars Battlefront PlayStation 4 console, but we must admit that it looks much better in the flesh. PlayStation Access were lucky enough to get their paws on the limited edition, and while we worry that the glossy nature of both the system and its controller will prompt...

Star Wars Battlefront's Live Action Ad Is Pitch Perfect

Anna Kendrick's feeling the force

In a move that's going to have your host humming that song all evening, Anna Kendrick has popped up as the obligatory celebrity in Star Wars Battlefront's live action advertisement. The lengthy clip is light on gameplay footage, but focuses on mood instead, as everyday people disappear from the real-world in order...

Review: Need for Speed (PS4)

Need for Speed (PS4)

Asleep at the wheel

For a game that's so high on Monster energy drinks, Need for Speed sure could do with a sugar rush. Ghost Games' long-awaited reboot – which was constructed over the course of a two year development cycle – is a slow and turgid affair, which is in direct contrast to its hyperactive cast of characters. It's frustrating because...

Need for Speed Fails to Hit First Gear on PS4

Sick

When you're forced to recycle old subtitles, you know that it's time that your brand got a reboot. EA Games' long running Need for Speed series has been securing podium finishes for almost as long as we can remember, but despite there being a movie in the interim, the publisher resisted the temptation to churn out a 2014 sequel to PlayStation...

DICE's open world runner delayed

In the Push Square office earlier today, we were having a conversation about just how good the PlayStation 4's lineup in early 2016 looks. It only took a few hours for one of those games to get delayed. Mirror's Edge Catalyst, the long-awaited parkour-'em-up from DICE, has tripped and stumbled into May. It was...

Star Wars Battlefront Trailer Gives Us a Look at Heroes and Villains in Action

Don't get cocky

Although we've gotten a beta and a couple of trailers, DICE has nevertheless been surprisingly low-key about showing gameplay of Star Wars Battlefront. Now that we're less than a month from the anticipated title's release date, it's nice to get a great glimpse at more of the characters we'll be able to play as in a new gameplay...

Talking Point: Does EA Access Really Represent Poor Value for PS4 Players?

Does EA Access Really Represent Poor Value for PS4 Players?

Vault the fence

It's been over a year now since Sony deemed EA Access poor value for PlayStation 4 players. The subscription-based service – which allows Xbox One owners to pay £3.99/$4.99 a month for, er, access to an ever expanding library of EA published games – was originally pitched to the PlayStation maker and Microsoft, but only the...
