It’s time for your fifth pack of free games from those nice people at Sony, assuming you have a PlayStation Plus subscription that is. Last month’s games, the rather good The Surge and the slightly less good Conan: Exiles will vanish from the service next week, but what will replace them?
Coming to your console in May are Overcooked and What Remains of Edith Finch, both highly rated and rather excellent games but perhaps some will complain as they are are smaller indie titles. Even though it clocks in at around just two hours of playtime we gave What Remains of Edith Finch a very rare 10/10 in our review.
“What Remains of Edith Finch is a short experience, but one of the best that has been released in recent memory,” said our Aran. “Giant Sparrow rose to prominence with The Unfinished Swan and here the studio has cemented itself as one of the best at constructing narratives intertwined with engaging environments. Both a celebration of life and a commentary on the tragedy of death, What Remains of Edith Finch should be experienced by as many people as possible.”
We were almost as impressed with Overcooked, which scored 8/10 in our review.
“Crafting a game that feels like a true co-operative experience is something studios continue to struggle with even today,” said reviewer Jim. “For a dev duo like Ghost Town Games to come along and nail it at their first attempt is a remarkable feat to say the least. As a result, Overcooked is easily the best co-op game of 2016 so far and will hopefully set living rooms afire with its accessible, often hilarious culinary hijinks. It’s certainly a game I’ll continue to revisit, roping in anyone willing to sit down and pick up a controller.”
