Following up an insanely strong January, February was never going to have it easy. The second month of 2018 may not have reached the same heights as its predecessor, but it was still a decent 28 days for PlayStation -- especially if you're a PlayStation VR owner, apparently.
Bronze Trophy: Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Bugs and loading times aside, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is one of the more intriguing role-playing releases that we've played in a long time. Plopped into the shoes of Henry, a rather dimwitted peasant, you're thrust into an open world full of medieval woes. Gameplay grounded in historical realism replaces typical fantasy elements that the genre is known for, with guides editor Glen Fox giving this one a good 7/10 in our review.
Silver Trophy: Sprint Vector
Ever just wanted to... Run? Well now you can, kind of, all from the comfort of your own home. Sprint Vector provides a rush that very few other VR games offer. Reviewer Liam Croft awarded the title an impressive 9/10, writing, "the unparalleled sense of speed created by your Stride is one of the greatest feelings in virtual reality". Liam concluded, "There’s nothing else quite like Sprint Vector in virtual reality right now, and so this is one you absolutely need to experience for yourself."
Gold Trophy: Moss
A game that's always looked like a promising slice of VR entertainment, Moss lived up to expectations, securing a good portion of our staff vote. Editor Sammy Barker reviewed this one, his only criticism being that it's a little on the short side. "Moss is sublime throughout, but it’s so good that you’ll wish there was more of it. Much more of it," he wrote, giving the game a 7/10. Still, despite that one shortcoming, Sammy concluded, "there's no doubt that Polyarc's built the foundations for something truly special here."
Platinum Trophy: Shadow of the Colossus
Well, what else was it going to be? A timely reminder that Shadow of the Colossus really is a very, very special game, this full PS4 remake stirred our emotions all over again. Sammy was never going to let anyone else review this one, awarding it an outstanding 10/10.
"One of the greatest games ever made resurrected in one of the greatest remakes of all time," Sammy wrote. "Shadow of the Colossus remains faithful to the 2006 original, but its presentation is on par with the very best that the PS4 has to offer. A masterpiece."

How we decide our Game of the Month: At the end of each month, the editorial team put together a list of nominees. Nominees must have been released within the month, and they must have been reviewed by Push Square. We select nominees based on our own review scores.
The editorial team then presents this list of nominees to the rest of the Push Square staff. Staff are asked to vote for three games that they think deserve to be crowned Game of the Month. First choice gets 3 points, second choice gets 2 points, and third choice gets 1 point. When voting closes, we tally the results to determine the order of this article. The game with the most points is our Game of the Month.
