Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

From Russia with indifference

The puzzle game used to be the staple of every platform’s portfolio. Be it Tetris, Columns, or Bust-a-Move, no console was complete without a score chasing outing of its own.

Far Cry 4 (PlayStation 4)

Take a walk on the wild side

Far Cry 3 managed to blend a near perfect mix of open world and first-person shooter, taking players to the darker side of a Pacific paradise, where many of the inhabitants were the definition of insane.
