    "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."

    "Skylanders: Imaginators is a game where toys come to life and in 3D. The best part is Crash Bandicoot is back and in the game. If you like very cartoonish platformer games this is perfect for you. I don't think that I could get very excited about this game even with Crash in it. I'm sure I'm not the target audience for the game though. Personally I would say it doesn't fit the topic."

    "what a good game even if it is mainly for children, it is entertaining, very entertaining, fun and with very good graphics, the characters are wonderful, it can entertain young and old, the adventures are very interesting and it is the game of awakening strong emotions, the characters are very well achieved and their characteristics are unique, they impel you to be creative and to immerse yourself in the different scenarios of the game I like it a lot, even though it is a bit old, even its graphics are still very current, excellent game because it invites you to be creative, having to use your imagination to overcome the obstacles."

    "Personally, the Lego games are getting a bit stale for my taste, Traveler's tales seems to make innovations then take steps backward. Looking at the open world in game seems almost identical to that of LEGO Heroes which doesn't entice me to pick the game up - been there done that! If you love the same od LEGO formula then you'll pick it up and enjoy it. I guess if you are looking for something that's going to innovate on the series in a bigger way then you aren't going to be completely satisfied - I certainly wasn't."

    "Being an avid gamer and a former child I was very interested in the game Lego Worlds on Steam. Steam is a great platform game for PS4 so I was very excited to try it out. I love Legos and the mix of a game together was too good to pass up. As usual the graphics were perfect and Lego Worlds is a quality game with many different challenges to keep you coming back for more."

    "I really dig this game so much; it's gorgeous! It has a sort of old style Metroid vibe, but the graphics are so lush, that you feel like you're stuck in a Katy Perry music video. I once got so engrossed in playing this awesome game, I forgot to feed my fishes, and they all died."

    "When I bought Megaman Legacy Collection online, I thought I had purchased a platformer game for PS4. To my unpleasant surprise, I had just paid for a Steam game that only works on Windows. What a waste of fifteen dollars."

    "I wanted a game for PS4, I have no way of playing this. This is a horrible solution when I have such specific parameters for what I am looking for. It's like if I asked for a car, and you give me a scooter. Terrible solution, and I wish I didn't even ask."

    "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!"
