January 2020's PlayStation Plus games have been confirmed earlier than expected. PlayStation's official Germany, Austria, and Switzerland YouTube channel have outed the first lineup of 2020, which, as usual, includes two PlayStation 4 titles. January's offerings are Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Goat Simulator.
Sony has since officially confirmed the lineup for both the entirety of Europe and North America. Unsurprisingly, we reckon Bluepoint's remastering of Naughty Dog's excellent Uncharted trilogy is worth playing. We awarded it a 9/10 in our review:
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is probably the best PS4 remaster thus far – and the system's had more than enough of them to give that statement weight. While there are small elements of all three bundled titles that have failed to stand the test of time, this is still a stellar trilogy, with stories and set-pieces that generally tend to better most modern games. Of course, existing fans will already know what wonders await them – but newcomers should brace themselves for 30 or so hours of solid gold.
Meanwhile, we reckon Goat Simulator definitely has novelty value, but it wears thin fairly fast. We gave the ludicrous title a 6/10 in our review:
Goat Simulator's nauseating stupidity has a certain je ne sais quoi, we suppose. You won't be feeding from this particular trough for all that long, but if you're willing to splurge on a headache-inducing afternoon of idiotic entertainment, then – incredibly – there are worse options out there. This isn't baaaad, but it's not the Greatest of all Time either.
