Sports game NBA 2K23 is probably the standout title from June 2023's line-up, bringing a quality basketball experience to PS5, PS4 subscribers. While it does have issues with microtransactions, our 8/10 rated NBA 2K23 PS5 review noted brilliant gameplay and tons of content. "On the court, 2K Sports has made some nice balancing tweaks and also improved the overall AI to make matches more dynamic and competitive, and when you pair all of that with all the new animations, you end up with a basketball sim that’s the very definition of a slam dunk."
We then have Jurassic World Evolution 2 for the park management and dinosaur enthusiasts, which is an improved sequel featuring Jeff Goldblum, and that's always a good thing. "If we had to make a list of things that are totally radical then dinosaurs chasing and eating annoying fannypack-wearing tourists while we triumphantly hum the Jurassic Park theme tune would be top ten. Maybe even top five. We're here for that. Minor quibbles with the main campaign aside, Jurassic World Evolution 2 delivers an entertaining if simplistic park builder, that well-utilises the Jurassic World license, and throws in just the right amount of dinosaur-fuelled mayhem to boot."
Finally, indie hit Trek to Yomi slices its way to PS Plus Essential next month. It may be short, but it's packed full of atmosphere and gorgeous visuals. "It's not quite side-scrolling Ghost of Tsushima, but it is an impressively atmospheric love letter to samurai cinema," we said.
