Like the zombie movies that inspired it, Rebellionâ€™s Zombie Army series is something of a cult classic. Some time has passed since the last instalment – Zombie Army Trilogy is fast approaching its fifth anniversary, which hopefully means Rebellion has spent the past five years thinking of unique ways to maim and kill in Zombie Army 4: Dead War.
Reviews went live today and are a tad mixed so far. It garnered 8/10s from Push Square and TSA andÂ a 7/10 from The Metro. Then on the lower end thereâ€™s a 6/10 from VG247 and Game Revolution‘s middling 2.5/5. The latter was left unimpressed by a string of odd design choices.
Reviews of Monster Energy Supercross â€“ The Official Videogame 3 are also now live, with scores including PSUâ€™s 7.5 and IGNâ€™s 7/10. â€œThough overly tame crashes and a no-frills campaign rankle, a superb handling model and improved feature set both ensure that Monster Energy Supercross â€“ The Official Videogame 3 is the best the series has ever been and clearly showcases Milestone’s Supercross franchise on an upward trajectory,â€ was PSUâ€™s verdict.
7th Sector is something of a turn-up for the books. It comes from indie publisher Sometimes You, who has put out some terrible games over the years. This cyberpunk physics-based puzzle adventure surprised us by being nothing short of outstanding, featuring a tense atmosphere, smart environmental storytelling and a huge array of puzzles that take considerable effort to overcome. Rest assured that itâ€™s a safe purchase. Review soon!
We can also expect The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics on all three formats this Tuesday. The PS Blog has chalked up a hitlist of the enemies you’ll face. Then on PS4 thereâ€™s the rather brazen Resident Evil alike Dawn of Fear (trailer below), the Five Nights at Freddyâ€™s series, and the colourful PSVR zombie horde slayer Throw Anything, which was well-received on PC. Worth throwing a few quid at, we reckon.
