Site News Where Is Our Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores PS5 Review?
Horizon Forbidden West’s hugely anticipated DLC expansion Burning Shores launches tomorrow on the PS5, and you may be wondering where our review is.

Site News Lost Judgment PS5 Review - Where Is It?
Still on the case
The embargo for Lost Judgment reviews is up today, but the Push Square verdict is still being decided. That's because Lost Judgment is a big game, and simply put, we're nowhere near finished playing through it. We're around 33 hours in at the time of writing, and we're absolutely swamped in optional activities and side quests. The...
Site News NBA 2K22 PS5, PS4 Review - Where Is It?
It's coming, a'ight
We’ve already published our Tales of Arise PS5 review and Life Is Strange: True Colors PS5 review, so you may be wondering where our NBA 2K22 review is. This one is going to take a little while, we’re afraid: that’s because due to the online nature of the release we only received review code until about an hour before...
Site News Our Game of the Year Countdown Gets Underway Today
Which game will win?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re not necessarily talking about illuminated trees and Christmas cake.

As is always the case, we’ve got multiple...
Site News Where's Our Cyberpunk 2077 Review?
This ain't it, V
It's fair to say that Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the biggest games of 2020. If not the biggest game of 2020, and one of the most anticipated games of the entire generation. We've been waiting on CD Projekt Red's open world RPG for what feels like an eternity, but unfortunately, just days before its release, we don't have a Push Square...
Site News Push Square Community's PS4 Screenshot Competition Is Go
Share your best screenshots
It's always worth remembering that Push Square is fortunate enough to have a lovely community.

Site News Where's Our Marvel's Avengers PS4 Review?
We A.I.M. for next week
Marvel's Avengers is out on PlayStation 4 today via the Deluxe Edition and so you might be wondering where all the reviews, and indeed the Push Square verdict, are. We do have review code of our own and have been plugging away at the game's campaign since yesterday, but given the online nature of this superhero experience,...
Site News Yes, We're Playing The Last of Us 2
Finish the fight
As has already been confirmed by a dozen or so social media influencers with approximately 15 times more clout than us, Sony has provided us with The Last of Us: Part II review code and we’re currently playing the game. And that’s all we’re really allowed to say at this stage, which is all a bit frustrating for you, isn’t...

What's an Xbox?
Look, we’ve got colleagues who bat for the Team in Green, but you really shouldn’t hold that against them. Many of you will already be familiar with our fantastic, marginally-more-family-friendly sibling site Nintendo Life – but did you know we’ve just relaunched Pure Xbox, too? The website has been resurrected ahead of the...
Site News Welcome to Our End of Year Bonanza
Christmas is coming
This is typically the time of year where computers get shutdown, email notifications get enabled, and Mulled Wine gets stewed. Make no mistake: that’s exactly what will be happening here at Push Square Towers, too – we’ll just be cranking up Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled as opposed to the crusty old karaoke machine. But!...

Site News We're Looking for a Vibrant Video Producer to Lead Push Square to YouTube Glory
Hey everyone! It's [Your Name] from Push Square
We love writing about PlayStation here at Push Square, but apparently the younger generation aren’t quite as fond of the written word. We’ve been meddling with YouTube for several years now, and we’ve published some cracking content in that time. However, with the PlayStation 5 around the corner,...
Site News Where's Our Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4 Review?
Today, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has launched across the globe. Infinity Ward's latest is in the hands of the public, and several media outlets have delivered their verdicts on the newest game in the storied franchise. So, where's ours? The short answer is we don't have the game yet. The slightly longer answer is this. Reviews that...

Site News Our PlayStation E3 2019 Coverage Starts Now
Are you red E?
Look, let’s address the big white elephant in the non-existent room: whatever happens over the next week or so, this is not going to be a vintage E3 for PlayStation. You can call us cynical if you like, but it’s just not going to be – without Sony in attendance, there’s going to be a gaping hole in our coverage that no...
Site News The Division 2 PS4 Review - Where Is It?
Listen up, agent
The game's out on PS4 right now, so where's our review for The Division 2? Well, as is almost always the case with these live service titles, the press don't get access to early review code, and that's what's happened with The Division 2. In other words, we'll be playing through the game at the same time as everyone else. That's...
Site News Push Square Is Now Ten Years Old (We Think)
Remembering a decade of (mostly) outstanding PlayStation coverage
Every good story starts with a eureka moment! My fledgling music career had fizzled out before I’d even had chance to finish my mathrock cover of Bump in the Night, and a bright-eyed Sammy Barker – then with much better, much blonder hair – decided to do something new. I’d...
Site News Where's Our Kingdom Hearts III Review?
The time has come for games critics to reveal their reviews for Kingdom Hearts III, but unfortunately, you won't be getting a review from us here at Push Square just yet.

All will be revealed
We know we say this every year, but 2018 really is our biggest Christmas schedule ever.

We’re really proud to be ending the...

Marvel's Spider-Man and Red Dead Redemption 2 in top three
Looks like Kratos may need to invest in a new trophy cabinet, because hot on the heels of last week’s The Game Awards 2018 win, God of War has now topped the Push Square forum’s Game of the Year poll. As brilliantly organised by community member KratosMD [Coincidental username...
Site News Push Square Readers Vote for Game of the Year
Push Square’s official Game of the Year has been decided, but you won’t see the editorial team's top ten until later in the month – we’ve got to keep the articles churning through the slow Christmas period, after all.

Site News Where's Our Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review?
Top of the BlOps
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now, and you’re probably wondering where our review is, right? Well, you’re going to have to sit tight. The reason for this is because the latest in Activision’s ginormous series is heavily online focused, and while we could have pushed for invites to swanky review events, we prefer to cover...

A quick word from the editors
As you may have noticed, reviews for Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age are now hitting the web. We did a quick round up that you can check out through here. However, we don't have a Push Square review of Dragon Quest XI to present to you, and we're going to detail why that is in this...

Site News Introducing Our Brand New Review Scoring System
The topic of reviews and our scoring system comes up an awful lot among the Push Square editorial team. Is an out-of-10 scale still the right way to go? Should we move to a 5-star rating? How can we make scoring games easier for our fleet of reviewers? Do we need scores at the end of our reviews at all? It's something that's needed looking...

Do you like what we've done to the place? Phwoar, it's pretty bloody spiffing, isn't it?
