Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Details
Platform: PlayStation 5
Developer: Insomniac Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Platformer, third-person shooter

ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10+)
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a brand new stand-alone story line that is designed to make it for newcomers to the series to pick up and play. The evil Doctor Nefarious returns and, not surprisingly, is up to no good. Fed up with always losing, chaos ensues when Doctor Nefarious gets a hold of a powerful artifact called the Dimensionator. With the ability to open rifts into other dimensions, Nefarious sets out to find a dimension where he always wins.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was made from the ground up for the PlayStation 5 and is evident in many ways. For starters, it’s easy to see that the game’s gameplay has been designed around the PS5’s ultra fast SSD. Travelling through rifts to new worlds is instantaneous and Rift Apart makes good use of that by incorporating into gameplay.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart screams perfection in nearly every single way. From mind-blowing graphics, to the addictive gameplay, to excellent use of the DualSense controller—this game is a true showcase for what the PS5 is capable of.

ESRB Rating: M (Mature 18+)
In Deathloop’s main story you play as Cole Vahn, an assassin stuck in an infinite time loop on a mysterious island. To stop the cycle, Cole must eliminate eight targets called “Visionaries” before the clock strikes midnight. If one is left alive, or Cole is killed, the entire day “resets” and it starts all over again. The time shifting is being used to stay in the same 24-hour cycle indefinitely, allowing the island inhabitants to live hedonistically.
Deathloop’s gameplay lets you approach each level however you’d like. You can go in guns blazing or with more calculated stealth tactics. Upgrades to your weapons and powers are available through an in-game currency system. And, no matter how you undertake each run, the rules of the time loop still govern the extent of your actions. Time shifting provides you with more freedom and creativity with how you eliminate your targets.
Deathloop offers a unique approach to the FPS genre, that you shouldn’t miss out on. The game brings together so many mechanics that wouldn’t usually mix, which makes it a true testament to developer’s pedigree and skill. Breakaway from the usual FPS fare and step into the loop!
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Details
Platform: PlayStation 5
Publisher: Square Enix
ESRB Rating: T (Teen)
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a single-player, action-packed adventure from the development team at Eidos-Montreal. It’s got a killer soundtrack, hilarious banter and chemistry between the entire Guardians of the Galaxy team and is one of the most entertaining games in recent memory.
While the game is set in the Marvel universe, it’s different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, it’s an all-new story with a fresh take on the Guardians of the Galaxy. The game’s story takes place 12 years after the Galactic War and you take on the role of Peter Quill a.k.a Star-Lord—the self-proclaimed leader of the Guardians.
Each character has their own unique skills and abilities, which are useful not only during battle but to solve mini puzzles that you encounter throughout the game. And, as your teammates fight enemies, a special metre builds up that allows your team to unleash a special ability known as Team Huddle. During the huddle, you create a motivational speech and play a song to inspire your teammates.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy contains a stunning universe that is filled with wonder and adventure. Without a doubt in my mind, I can honestly say that Eidos Montreal has made one of the best superhero games to date. From the fantastic visuals, to the amazing soundtrack, to the superb voice acting and all-new story, the team at Eidos Montreal has truly outdone themselves.
