      "The Rayman series is one of the best Playstation platformer series, and Rayman Legends continues the trend. This is a great game that I can play with my nine-year old."

    "It's so hard to find platformer games for ps4 but this one is great! Rogue Legacy is nice because even when you die your character's children can continue on. It's so defeating to spend hours playing a game and then die and have to start over again. With this game I don't have..." Read more

    "I am a huge fan of Dark Souls, even though I die every other minute. I was wanting something similar to play, and Salt and Sanctuary was the answer. I love that this includes the PS4 and PS Vita downloads, so I can play it on both platforms." Read more

      "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." Read more

      "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!"
