    "This was expected. The best PS4 action game is also the Game Of The Year 2018. This reboot to the original trilogy is truly a masterpiece. Santa Monica Studios will have a hard time topping this one. A must play for both fans of the original game and action games in general."

    "A strong contender to God of War this year. This sequel took nearly a decade to arrive but it shows that the long wait was worth it. It has a strong story, beautiful sprawling open-world that's an absolute joy to explore and experience. Another must play."

    "In short, this game is a gory masterpiece. From the makes of the Dark Souls series comes a new game with the same unforgiving difficulty that the team is known for and add blood. Lots and lots of it. Be prepared for a tough but fulfilling ride."

    "One of the greatest open-world games of all time. The last installment in the epic Witcher trilogy is also its best one and you don't even need to have played the first two to enjoy this one. Every nook and cranny of its sprawling landscape is filled with memorable characters, clever writing, and rewards for completionists."

    "As the name implies, this is a re-release of a PS3 original but better. Be prepared for the feels with what is perhaps one of the greatest tearjerker stories in gaming. This remastered version includes the Left Behind DLC for even more watery eyes."
