Let’s analyze what each game is like to see what they are like.
Deep Rock Galactic originally released in mid-2020 for Xbox One and PC, having had a good run on Xbox Game Preview and Steam Early Access. We were deeply impressed with the game, and in our review we say:
“Ooh, ah, that’s how it always starts, then run and scream. Deep Rock Galactic can be deceptively easy at times, until swarms of insects crawl out of the dark to besiege you and your friends. Who knew space dwarf mining could be so much fun? “
The cooperative space dwarf shooter has some extra bells and whistles compared to the PC and Xbox versions of the game. On PS5, the DualSense touchpad can be used to control the Terrain Scanner tool and the gamepad’s built-in speakers will bark commands to players from Mission Control. Deep Rock Galactic developer Ghost Ship Games has released a trailer detailing these exclusive features:
Meanwhile, DIRT 5 launched alongside the new generation of consoles, a more arcade version of the series again to accompany DIRT Rally 2.0 simulation racing spills. In our review, Tom said:
“DIRT 5 eliminates the most serious elements of the franchise and puts all of its eggs in a basket shaped like a game cabinet. Sometimes it’s a riot, in other areas a bit repetitive and lacking in finesse, yet it fulfills the concept of an adrenaline-fueled off-road racer. It’s a game that makes you sit forward in your seat and savor the joy of jumping a Peugeot 3008 from the Dakar Rally down a ravine ”.
Last but not least, Persona 5 Strikers continues the story of the sublime Persona 5, but takes on a new form as a musou fighter. Nic had nice things to say about it when it was released early last year.
“Persona 5 Strikers is an excellent welcome party for the franchise. It takes a formula that has been proven to work and takes it to a new place by adding an entirely new combat system that allows you to play as the entire team, rather than the main character we’re all used to. That being said, and while Persona 5 Strikers is great in its own right, enough has been removed for this game to work that it cannot reach the heights of the original. “
Make sure to take them all before they are replaced on February 2, 2022 with the Following lot of PlayStation Plus games. What will those games be?
