Doom, Uncharted 4, The Witcher 3: the best games of the EU PlayStation Summer Sale

Posted on 08/10 18:26 in | 0

It might be August, but it's still summer dammit, and that means the EU PlayStation Summer Sale is still going strong. This week, Sony has added nearly a dozen new games to the sale list - more if you count special editions with bonus content. The original sale was already substantial, and with even more games to pick from, I figured I'd help steer you in some helpful directions.

Below you'll find the best deals for PS4 games from the Summer Sale, including both old and recently-added games. Each game has a snippet from our official review, and you can click the links if you want to read the full version and find out more.

Uncharted 4 was £44.99, now £29.99: "Once things kick off properly it’s the treasure hunting adventure you know and love. It’s beautiful and vast, with astonishing locations and things to see. Unfettered from the need to flesh out characters and the past, the game finds a consistent momentum."

Doom was £49.99, now £29.99: "It’s a game that understands the raw essence of the first-person shooter on a fundamental level, and presents it in every new way it can through every moment and mode it has. It delivers, it explores, and it never, ever stops."

Tom Clancy's The Disivion was £54.99, now £34.99: "The Division is all about creating angles - get into the right spot and you can hose an enemy with ease, but if they dig in and you start a straight, cover-based shoot-out things get much trickier. ... This game is at its best when you're constantly moving and killing, tactically out-maneuvering enemies to win each encounter."

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege was £54.99, now £24.99: "Rainbow Six Siege’s calculating, climactic confrontations feel fresh in a genre mostly concerned with movement. You’re less headbutting ram and more coiled snake here."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was £34.99, now £19.99: "The Witcher 3 is at its best when you choose solely to wander, taking sidequests from peasants and contracts from town noticeboards. Freed from the convolutions of the main plot, it's a varied and exciting realisation of the Ronin fantasy." 

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition was £49.99, now £15.49: "What's really exciting about the game is that it proves that traditional RPGs have a lot to teach present-day designers. Freedom, simulation, depth, and respect for the player's choices. There's power in that old blood." (Review from our sister site, PC Gamer)

FIFA 16 was £39.99, now £15.99: "Although marginally slower then before, with a greater focus on build-up play, a slight loss of arcade appetite is a small price to pay for FIFA 16’s for fresh balance."
