  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Forspoken?

    Spell it out

    Well, this should be interesting! The time has come to have your say on Forspoken, the Square Enix action RPG that released on PS5 last week. It's more than fair to say that this open world adventure has divided opinion. It was met with mostly lukewarm reviews, and if we're being brutally honest, it feels like the game's already been...

  • Poll Was The Last of Us - Episode 3 the Best One Yet?

    The big deviation

    We're well into the first season of HBO's The Last of Us TV adaptation now, but this third episode represents the first big deviation from how the story was told in the PS3, PS4, and PS5 game. Focusing on the relationship between Bill and Frank, Naughty Dog only hinted at what the two characters shared before the outbreak and how...

  • Poll Did You Buy the Dead Space PS5 Remake?

    Scream for yourself

    Dead Space has returned! The beloved sci-fi horror title, which first released on the PS3 over 14 years ago, has been remade on PS5 from the ground up. It's an incredibly faithful revival, retaining the original game's story, tone, and core gameplay — but that's arguably what fans have been pining for all along. We gave the...

  • Poll Did You Buy a DualSense Edge?

    Over the Edge

    The DualSense Edge controller is out now, priced at a premium $199.99 / £209.99. This is Sony's official 'pro' controller, boasting a range of new and improved features over the standard PS5 pad. PlayStation fans had been asking the Japanese giant to make its own pro controller for years, but now that it's finally arrived, are you...

  • Poll What Review Scores Would You Give Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden?

    This time, it's Persona-l

    It's been a week or so since Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden were finally made available on modern consoles, and as per usual, we want to know what review score you would give them. If you've read our reviews, then you'll know that we're huge fans of the Persona series. And while we do think that Persona 5 Royal...

  • Poll Did You Buy Forspoken?

    Speak your mind

    Forspoken is here, and it's safe to say that the game has divided opinion up until this point. Back when it was first announced, the Square Enix action RPG was billed as a PS5 showpiece, but initial reviews have been all over the spectrum. It's difficult to tell just how commercially successful Forspoken will end up being. We've...

  • Poll How Would You Rate The Last of Us - Episode 2?

    Long, long time

    After the lenghty, explosive opening of HBO's The Last of Us, the second episode picks up where the TV adaptation left off as Joel and Tess begin their trip across the USA to deliver Ellie to the Fireflies. While the second entry of nine wasn't nearly as long, it still had a lot going on. We're certain many of you tuned in to catch...

  • Poll Did You Buy Monster Hunter Rise on PS5, PS4?

    Rise up

    Out now on PS5 and PS4, Monster Hunter Rise seems to be another banger from Capcom. Many have proclaimed this to be one of the best — if not the best — instalment in the long-running franchise, and now that PlayStation players can finally jump in, we want to know if you're buying a copy. We highly recommend it, by the way. We handed the...

  • Poll Did You Buy the Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden Remasters?

    A social link

    Can you believe that Atlus finally grew a brain and re-released two of its most beloved games on modern platforms? Well, it's finally happened: today marks the launch of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden on PS4, and we want to know if you're dipping into these fantastic RPGs. We dare say that both ports will be attracting a lot...

  • Poll Share Your First Thoughts on The Last of Us TV Series

    Is it a hit or a miss?

    After many years of filming and a wave of extremely positive critic reviews, the first episode of HBO's TV adaptation of The Last of Us is now available for viewing. Named When You're Lost in the Darkness, what are your first impressions of the series after watching the first 1 hour and 35 minutes of the show? Has it lived up...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for January 2023?

    Plus or minus?

    Another glut of games have been announced for PS Plus Extra and Premium. It's no secret that Extra subscribers in particular have been eating well of late, and that's set to continue when the new offerings drop next week. The likes of Back 4 Blood, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, and Dragon Ball FighterZ are headline acts, and...

  • Poll Did You Buy One Piece Odyssey?

    Luffing it

    One Piece Odyssey is out now on PS5 and PS4, bringing the ultra-popular manga and anime series to Sony's systems as a turn-based RPG. Obviously, existing fans are the target audience here — but in its accessible mechanics and eternally entertaining characters, we dare say that One Piece newbies might want to check it out as well. We...

  • Poll Would You Be Interested in a Detachable PS5 Disc Drive?

    Will you detach or not?

    Sony doesn't seem to have a PS5 Slim or a PS5 Pro ready to release any time soon, but a hardware refresh it is allegedly planning is a detachable disc drive. Suggested to be launching in September this year, the idea appears to be that the platform holder would potentially drop the PS5 system with a disc drive from its lineup...

  • Poll What PS5, PS4 Game Are You Most Looking Forward to in January 2023?

    Starting strong

    Wow, this has to be one of the most stacked January release schedules we've seen in a long time. The first month of the year is usually a period of peace and quiet as far as new games go, with publishers typically leaning towards February or March release dates. But 2023 is different, and January is pretty much an early indication of...

  • Poll What's Your Favourite God of War Ragnarok Weapon?

    Your weapon of choice

    Warning: this article contains God of War Ragnarok spoilers. Please don't scroll down if you haven't finished the game. God of War Ragnarok encourages you to use all of the weapons Kratos has in his arsenal, whether that's through enemy immunities or the environment dictating your next move. However, deep down, we all have a...

  • Game of the Year #1 - God of War Ragnarok

    Norse one

    For as much as the contrarian in all of us would love to be sitting here telling you, “Well, ackshually, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin was the best game of 2022” – it wasn’t, was it? No, that accolade is reserved for God of War Ragnarok, a release so finely polished you can practically see your own reflection smiling...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Essential Games for January 2023?

    Plus or minus?

    Hold on, January 2023? It's here already?! Yep, we know it's hard to believe, but a whole new year is here — and that means we've got another 12 months of PS Plus offerings to look forward to (and perhaps moan about incessantly). We can see January's selection being somewhat divisive. It's spearheaded by the well-liked Star Wars...

  • Poll Have You Completed Elden Ring?

    Never give up

    There's no doubt that Elden Ring was one of 2022's biggest deals. The open world RPG released all the way back in February (which somehow feels like an age ago now), but it managed to be a conversational centrepiece throughout the entire year. This was, of course, down to the title's overall quality, but it was also thanks to game's...

  • Game of the Year #3 - Horizon Forbidden West

    Pure shores

    How do you improve upon one of the better sci-fi stories in recent video game memory? You go off-the-rails, of course! Dutch developer Guerrilla Games clearly hit Amsterdam’s finest pot shops while rolling up the plot for Aloy’s sophomore outing in Horizon Forbidden West, as – spoiler alert – this narrative involves clones,...

  • Game of the Year #4 - Trails from Zero

    Crossbell's calling

    Originally a PSP game from 2010, Trails from Zero was finally localised outside of Japan earlier this year. Thanks to the increasing popularity of the Trails of Cold Steel games, publisher NIS America felt like the time was right to introduce Western fans to one of the most beloved instalments in Falcom's long-running franchise...

  • Game of the Year #5 - Cult of the Lamb

    It's good to be baa-d

    In a year rife with excellent indie games, Cult of the Lamb always stood out. Though some grow weary of the ubiquitous rogue-likes and rogue-lites these days, this game puts a unique spin on the formula to create one of 2022's most ingenious gameplay cycle. Essentially, this is a game of two halves. The first is a fairly...

  • Game of the Year #6 - Sifu

    Don't think, feel

    We were pretty much sold on Sifu as soon as it was revealed. A gritty but stylised martial arts revenge movie in video game form? Of course we'll give it a go. And we did indeed give it a go — over and over and over again. What we're saying is that Sifu is a difficult game, but don't let that put you off! Persevere with this...

  • Game of the Year #7 - Sonic Frontiers

    Hedgehog redemption

    Look. Sonic has been in a rough spot for bloody ages. There's no getting away from that, no matter how fast you can run. SEGA needed to shake things up, lest its mascot spiral further into the abyss. By some miracle, Sonic Team finally realised it needed to buck up its ideas, and the result is the character's best 3D game in a...

  • Game of the Year #8 - Tunic

    Feeling foxy

    Tunic arrived a little later on PlayStation consoles, but by then, its status as a hit indie game was already assured. Largely created by just one person, this plucky action adventure transcended its humble origins to become one of 2022's best-rated games. It's not too hard to see why. At first glance, it looks like a simple...

  • Game of the Year #9 - The Last of Us: Part I

    It wasn't for nothing (sorry)

    Was there a sorer, saltier point of discussion among PlayStation fans in 2022 than the release of The Last of Us: Part I? We reckon only the rants of Sony’s legal team to governing bodies regarding Microsoft’s unprecedented acquisition of Activision Blizzard rank higher. No, there’s no point in ignoring the...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give The Witcher 3 PS5 Version?

    Steel and silver

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition has brought Geralt of Rivia back to PlayStation with a bang. The incredibly highly rated open world RPG has been available on PS5 for about a week now — via a free upgrade, no less — and that's hopefully been enough time for you to form a full opinion on the game. In our opinion, The...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion?

    Welcome back

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion released on PS5 and PS4 about a week ago now, and it feels like Zack Fair has enjoyed a fairly positive return. We've seen a lot of people saying that this is their first time experiencing Crisis Core — originally a 2007 PSP title — and with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth coming up next year (if it...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for December 2022?

    Plus or minus?

    A whopping 22 games are coming to PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium next week for December's big update. Highlights include the excellent Judgment, a trio of Far Cry titles, the two Middle-earth games, and inspired CRPG Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give The Callisto Protocol?

    Deader space

    The Callisto Protocol has been out on PS5 for a couple of weeks now, and we've seen some very mixed opinions on the horror title. Expectations were high for this spiritual successor to the Dead Space series, but it does feel like it's struggled to live up to the hype. We gave the game a respectable but slightly disappointing 7/10 in...

  • Poll Are You Playing The Witcher 3's PS5 Upgrade?

    Wind's howling

    The Witcher 3's 'next-gen' update is out today on PS5, and it's a free upgrade if you already own the open world RPG on PS4. With that in mind, it's a fairly generous offer, especially since we think Geralt's adventure is still landmark title. Our The Witcher 3 PS5 review concludes: "Over seven years after its original release, The...

  • Poll What Is Your PS5, PS4 Game of the Year 2022?

    Have your say on Push Square's Game of the Year

    With the temperatures plunging below zero and festive decorations erected, it’s time once more to reflect on the Game of the Year. Behind the scenes we’re busy preparing an eclectic slate of holiday content – articles to keep you occupied during the downtime in the dark depths of December. And as...

  • Poll Did You Buy Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion?

    SOLDIER on

    An impressive remaster of a PSP spinoff from 2007, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is out today on PS5 and PS4. Square Enix will tell you that this isn't a remake, but in truth, much of Zack Fair's updated adventure has been remade — just not in a completely new form, as is the case with something like Final Fantasy VII Remake...

  • Poll How Would You Rate The Game Awards 2022?

    Share your thoughts

    That's another set of awards and announcements over with, so it's time to share what you thought of The Game Awards for 2022. Geoff Keighley had some mixed messaging going into the show, hyping it up in places but downplaying some announcements elsewhere. Still, the show itself seemed to deliver. The big reveals went to Death...

  • Poll Will You Be Watching The Game Awards 2022?

    And why do you watch it?

    The Game Awards 2022 is just over 24 hours away, and we want to know if you'll be tuning into Geoff Keighley's annual bonanza. Over the last few years, Geoff and his team have managed to expand the event beyond its original vision. What started out as a still relatively niche celebration of gaming has evolved into a huge...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Essential Games for December 2022?

    Plus or minus?

    December's PS Plus Essential games have been announced, and as always, we've got three titles to scrutinise. Although to be fair, the immediate reception to December's offering has been quite positive — at least, from where we're sitting. The headline act is undoubtedly Mass Effect Legendary Edition — an excellent remastered...

  • Poll Did You Buy The Callisto Protocol?

    Undead space

    Dead Space is back! Well, not really. Although it actually will be when the Dead Space remake launches in January. Anyway, look, we're going off topic now. We're really here to talk about The Callisto Protocol, the new action-horror game from Striking Distance Studios — which just so happens to be spearheaded by people who worked on...

  • Poll Did You Buy Evil West?

    Embracing evil

    We doubt that Evil West was on many people's must-buy lists at the start of this year, but the unashamedly 'AA' action game has actually made a bit of a splash — at least in hardcore circles. We gave the comically gruesome title a rock solid 7/10 in our Evil West PS5 review, concluding: "Evil West is one of those really enjoyable...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give God of War Ragnarok?

    Oh boy

    It took some time, but God of War Ragnarok is here, and we think it's glorious. Sony's latest blockbuster was awarded an exceedingly rare Push Square 10/10 in our full God of War Ragnarok PS5 review, and the title commands one of the highest overall Metacritic scores of the last few years. It's fair to say that it's been a critical hit. And...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Sonic Frontiers?

    Unknown territory

    Sonic Frontiers has been on the market for about a week or so now, and at least from our perspective, the reception has been reasonably positive. Even shockingly positive, some might argue, for what is the latest entry in a long line of critically panned 3D Sonic games. We really enjoyed the open world adventure, as per our Sonic...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for November 2022?

    Plus or minus?

    Another month, another avalanche of PS Plus Extra games, and...well, another reason to lose faith in PS Plus Premium, if we're being brutally honest. Indeed, there's one big talking point surrounding November's announcement, and it's that PS Plus Premium simply isn't offering up the classic PS1, PS2, and PSP titles like many people...

  • Poll Did You Buy God of War Ragnarok?

    End times

    We've been waiting a long time to write this particular poll! God of War Ragnarok is finally available on PS5 and PS4. The much-hyped sequel to 2018's excellent God of War reboot, Ragnarok has actually managed to equal the first game's Metacritic score — which is certainly no small feat — making it one of the highest rated titles in...

  • Poll Did You Buy Sonic Frontiers?

    Feeling blue

    Sonic Frontiers is here, and it's actually...pretty good? Well, that's what our own Sonic Frontiers PS5 review says, and it's currently sitting at a respectable 73 on Metacritic — which, let's be honest, is fairly high for a modern Sonic title. You could argue that the Blue Blur is back, then, but have the review scores been enough to...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2?

    Staying frosty

    The campaign has been out for two weeks and the multiplayer and co-op mode one week, so now it's time to share your own review score of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. We published our own Review in Progress of its single player offering, and then updated to a final score of 8/10 after having enough time to play everything Infinity...

  • Poll Will You Pay the PSVR2 Launch Price?

    Pound stretcher

    Sony has announced its next-gen PSVR2 headset will cost £529.99/$549.99/€599.99, which is more than a PS5. It's a lot of money to see written down, but when you start to consider the technology you're getting in exchange, the picture starts to become clearer. As detailed in our Full Specs Comparison guide including the

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Rollerdrome?

    Skate or die

    10 days on from Roll7's second PS5, PS4 release of 2022, it's time to have your say on Rollerdrome. The futuristic blood sport asks you to rack up high scores by taking out goons and performing tricks and grinds in-between. We had a really great time with the title, awarding it an 8/10 in our PS5 review. We concluded in our Rollerdrome...

  • Poll Did You Buy Saints Row?

    You're the Boss

    The rebooted, new-look Saints Row is here, and we quite liked it ( we even wrote a whole Saints Row Collectibles guide!) — but the game's received plenty of criticism elsewhere. As such, it's quite difficult to judge just how well this latest open world romp will resonate with players. It's got the advantage of launching at a time...

  • Poll How Much Would You Pay for the DualSense Edge PS5 Pro Controller?

    Edgy enough for you?

    It's finally happening: Sony is making its own 'Pro' PS5 controller, named the DualSense Edge. The pad was revealed through a brief trailer during Geoff Keighley's lengthy Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022 show, and it's exactly the kind of product that you'd expect. You can remap every input, save different configurations,...

  • Poll Was Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022 Any Good?

    Have your say

    The time has arrived to rate another Geoff Keighley bonanza. Of his three yearly shows, Gamescom Opening Night Live has usually proven to be the weakest, but did the 2022 version buck the trend? Share your thoughts in this Push Square poll. We already knew about a handful of the announcements going into the show, like a new look at...

  • Poll Is PS Plus Premium Good Enough?

    How can Sony improve it?

    With confirmation that exactly zero games were added to PS Plus Premium's library for August's update, those subscribed to the service's most expensive tier are understandably asking questions. Meanwhile, behind the scenes here at Push Square, we've been having conversations a

  • Poll Will Sony Host a PlayStation Showcase Next Month?

    The age-old question

    It has been almost a full year since Sony's last PlayStation Showcase, where it now typically debuts some of its biggest first-party projects alongside major announcements from other publishers. Last year's event played host to the reveals of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Marvel's Wolverine, as well as a new God of War Ragnarok...

  • Poll Sleeping Dogs Turns 10 Years Old - Are You Still a Fan?

    Going Wei back

    Sleeping Dogs just turned ten years old! The sandbox title first launched for the PS3 on the 14th August 2012, and it's safe to say that it's fondly remembered. At the time, Sleeping Dogs didn't set the world alight with rave review scores or super high sales figures, but it did gain significant traction over the years that followed...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for August 2022?

    Extra plus or extra minus?

    August's PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium games have been officially revealed, and if you happen to be new to the Yakuza franchise, you're in for a treat. We're looking at a total of 12 games being added to the subscription service, but there's been a bit of a backlash over the complete lack of cla

  • Poll Did You Ever Use PS5 Accolades?

    We hardly knew ye

    Sony is set to discontinue PS5 accolades later this year, if you can believe it. What? You don't even know what the PS5 accolades system is? Well, let's have ourselves quick recap to refresh our memories... Accolades are basically digital awards that you can earn through playing multiplayer games on PS5. They were revealed just...

  • Poll Are You Happy With Your PS Plus Essential Games for August 2022?

    Plus or minus?

    The PS Plus Essential line-up for August 2022 has been officially announced, and as always, we would like nothing more than to hear whether you're happy with what's being offered. But first, let's run through a quick recap, shall we? You could argue that August has not one, but two headline acts in the form of top notch remake Tony...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Stray?

    Fur real

    Stray has been out for a few days now, and it really seems to have struck a chord with a lot of people. Obviously making a game where you play as a cat that can meow on command is going to have mass appeal from the start — but very positive reviews and the fact that it's available through PS Plus Extra certainly helps. Indeed, we gave...

  • Poll Are You Playing Stray?

    Really feline it

    Cyberpunk cat simulator Stray is out now on PS5 and PS4 — and it's available at no additional cost if you're subscribed to PS Plus Extra. But as always, we want to know if you're playing the latest hot release! For what it's worth, we think Stray is a great game. We gave it an 8/10 in our Stray PS5 review, heaping praise on its...
