April’s PlayStation Plus games are about to be released: on Tuesday, April 4, ‘Meet your maker’, ‘Sackboy: A big adventure’ and ‘Tails of iron’ will finally be available. And with the arrival of new games with which to destroy the controller at the stroke of a thumb, comes the eternal question: Which one to hit first?
Plataforming, adventure or raideo?
It depends a lot on your personal tastes, but here the first one we’ll try will be ‘Sackboy’. What can we do, we have such a nice memory of ‘Little Big Planet’ that we can’t resist to see what its protagonist does on PS5, with a classic platformer that drinks, and a lot, from the Mario saga (and specifically from Super Mario 3D World) without taking away a bit of charm. Admit it: no matter how much of a Sony fan you are, you’ve ever wished Miyamoto would release a couple of games on your PlayStation.
Sackboy’ is made with love and affection for the genre, but also for a character somewhat mistreated by time. If only for the good old days, it’s worth going back to a mythical saga. But of course, if we go to the good old (modernized) times, we don’t want to lose sight of ‘Tails of Iron’: a 2D ‘Dark Souls’ a little shorter than usual (at a certain age, believe us, it’s a good thing) and that goes to the point, with a spectacular and different narrative. Okay, it’s not ‘Hollow knight’, but it’s worth a look.
For once, the third in discord is not that we can’t recommend it, it’s that it’s an absolute novelty! And the first reviews leave it as a mixture of ‘Minecraft’, ‘Super Mario Maker’ and… ‘Doom’. How you stay. With a first-person gameplay, ‘Meet your maker’ consists of setting up the best possible defensive barrier in your base with enemies, traps and mazes so that your rivals can’t enter and rob you… while you go to do the same in their bases. Simple and fun.
To choose just one of the three games, we would need a whiteboard and several lists of pros and cons. Fortunately, in April, PlayStation Plus games were able to keep fans happy, so let’s hope the good times continue in May!
