Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GameRevolution Recommends:



Killzone: Shadow Fall

Guerrilla Games made a name for itself on PlayStation 3 with the shockingly gorgeous visuals of Killzone 2 and the subsequent Killzone 3. The next entry in the series, Killzone: Shadow Fall raises the visual bar even higher, serving as the undoubted visual showpiece for Sony's next-gen platform. But pretty looks aside, Shadow Fall is an impressive first-person shooter in its own right, with a robust single-player campaign and a suite of multiplayer modes. If you're looking to get the most bang for your buck on launch day, you won't be disappointed with Killzone: Shadow Fall



Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Instead of returning to the time of the American Revolution, the folks over at Ubisoft decided to rewind the clock several decades and put players in the shoes of Connor's grandfather. In Assassin's Creed IV, you play as Edward Kenway, a pirate whose complex relationship with the Assassin Order makes for an interesting tale. Black Flag takes the unforgettable naval battles of Assassin's Creed III, and builds upon it to make an epic quest set on the high seas. (And on the PS4, the waves of the Caribbean waters are cat-entrancing.) That, however, doesn't mean Kenway won't set feet on dry land from time to time, scaling building and knifing unsuspecting foes in the back. Assassin's Creed IV has nearly everything you could ever want from an AC title and then some. 



Knack

Mark Cerny—you know, the genius behind the PlayStation 4—decided to step back in the software ring with Knack, a charming new platformer that harkens back to the genre's early beginnings on the original PlayStation. While on the surface Knack may look like nothing more than a game for kids, its shocking difficulty will have even the most hardcore gamers on their edge of their seats. Of course, there are easier settings for those who may not be as familiar with the medium, making Knack the go-to game for everyone, regardless of age or skill level.



Resogun

Considering the fact that Resogun is coming free to everyone with a PlayStation Plus subscription, there's absolutely no reason not to give Housemarque's latest a go. The talented studio behind Super Stardust is at it again, but this time with a slightly different take on the classic shooter. In Resogun, you navigate a ship along the confines of a cylindrical pathway, spraying bullets at oncoming enemies. It's addictive gameplay and leaderboard system will have you chasing the high score for hours on end. Don't say we didn't warn you.



Battlefield 4

While DICE's latest entry in the Battlefield franchise may already be available for purchase on current-gen consoles, make now mistake, Battlefield 4 was designed with next-gen hardware in mind. From stunning visuals to unparalleled levels of destruction and dynamic maps, there's a whole lot new about this jaw-dropping first-person shooter. If you want a game that will really push your shiny new PlayStation to its limits, the massive online battles of Battlefield 4 will be sure to do the trick.
