    "If you're really interested in a sort of kid-scary, exciting platformer, Rayman Legends sounds like something you might meet wandering down your alley. The Amazon page referral is a good one, because not only does it include screenshots and lots of descriptive language — not to mention videos — but also customer reviews. You'd be hard-pressed to come up with a better commercial site to use for reference."

    "I loved plat former games since I was a young child playing them with my brothers. I played through many of them since then. Rogue legacy has one of the best takes on the game. Letting your character change by the generation. It is a very awesome game and anyone with a ps4 or pc can play it."

    "The game was described to me as a 2D Souls game. That is the first impression, but it’s not a complete picture. It’s a Metroidvania in terms of world building, with plenty of platforming and ability unlocks that give you the tools you need to access new areas. It’s also more platform than Souls when it comes to the smaller mobs throughout the levels. The mob placement makes the platforming better, you learn their differences and cut through them. This is how you spend most of your time."

    "One of the best games I've ever played, this new imagining of Ratchet brings the series to a new light and a new era. While it's got plenty of winks and nudges to the old series, it keeps things fresh and familiar at the same time. Definitely pick it up if you've got a PS4."

    "This game you can play alone or with friends. It has excellent reviews and looks very engaging. You gain levels as you play, discovery levels and gaining more and more power. The fact that it can be played online with friends, makes it better so they all can connect."

    "Psychonauts is a platformer game that is very positively reviewed on steam. It is available for PC but the linked page has nothing to do with PS4 so this doesn't address the problem at all."

    "I love playing platformer games on my PS4 and I had just completed another game, so I was in the market for another one. I found Grow Home on PSN and really liked the screenshots, so I jumped in and have been very happy. I love the art style and the gameplay, and the price was great too on the current sale. I highly recommend this game for people looking for indie platformers like myself!"
