PS Plus April 2021 - Are The Games Any Good?

Whilst you might be keen to add them to your subscription, the question of whether you should download them is another quandary, especially with limited storage on the PS5.

So to help you decide, here's a recap of the games Metacritic scores and some choice comments from the leading reviews across the industry.

Days Gone

METACRITIC RATING - 71/100


Game Informer - Days Gone has good gameplay foundations. The scarcity of supplies and ever-present threat of zombies put me on edge as much as it gave me options to escape by the skin of my teeth. But the inability to fully deliver on either the story or open world fronts makes it a title of both possibilities and limitations. 78/100

GamesRadar - Days Gone is a keen and engaging open world zombie adventure despite some issues. 70/100

Zombie Army 4

METACRITIC RATING - 72/100

Gameskinny - Ever wanted to dodge zombie sharks while on a quest to destroy the undead animated by evil wizard-Hitler? Well, it doesn't get much better than Zombie Army 4. 90/100.

Guardian - With gruesome visuals and a shameless B-movie narrative, this Nazi-bashing survival game offers little more than mindless mayhem – but that’s what we enlisted for. 80/100

Oddworld: Soulstorm

Oddworld Soulstorm hasn't launched yet, so you'll have to make up your own mind on April 6!
