Dragon Ball FighterZ (PS4)

The best looking anime-based title ever made? We certainly think so. Stunning in motion, Arc System Works has, er, worked miracles with its Unreal-based engine. Dragon Ball FighterZ's superb blend of 3D assets and 2D animation brings Dragon Ball to life in a way that few would have thought possible back when Goku and the gang first hit our TV screens in the 90s. Bursting with character as well as colour, this is as much a technical marvel as it is a ridiculously good looking video game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4)

Red Dead Redemption 2 boasts the best looking open world on PS4, and that's saying a lot. Rockstar expertly balances realistic terrain and lighting with romanticised touches, resulting in a picturesque epic. Although some of the character models and finer details aren't quite up there with the best the platform has to offer, the game's still a stunning visual and technical achievement. Red Dead 2 is incredibly difficult to fault on a graphical level.

Battlefield V (PS4)

DICE has a record of delivering visually spotless games, and it feels like every release beats the last. Battlefield V may have had a lukewarm reception, but there's no denying it's an incredibly handsome shooter with the best explosions in the biz. With its huge maps and relentless action, there aren't many rivals quite as good looking as this. The Frostbite engine might be reportedly hard to work with, but DICE is the expert, and the results speak for themselves.

Death Stranding (PS4)

Created with Horizon: Zero Dawn's delightful Decima engine, Death Stranding is a desolate but incredibly pretty game. Its cutscenes, complete with typical Hideo Kojima direction, are a sight to behold, sporting some of the best motion capture and character models on PS4. What's more, some of the game's otherworldly scenarios really elevate the visuals to another level. Between its stunning scenery and often outstanding artistic flair, Death Stranding's graphics live long in the memory.

Devil May Cry 5 (PS4)

Some bland environmental design aside, Devil May Cry 5 is a stunner. Thanks to some crazy detailed character models, outstanding animation, and a whole load of eye-popping visual effects, this is pretty much the best looking hack and slash action game ever made. When battles are in full flow and you're tearing enemies to shreds with insane combos, Devil May Cry 5 is nothing short of jaw-dropping.
