PlayStation Store: Far Cry 6 and Alan Wake Remastered

PlayStation Store: Far Cry 6 and Alan Wake Remastered

PlayStation Store

PlayStation Store is updated this week with the arrival of two titles particularly awaited by PS5 and PS4 owners, namely Far Cry 6 and Alan Wake Remastered. We speak respectively of the last episode of the famous Ubisoft series, set in the fictional island of Yara, and of the iconic action shooter developed by Remedy Entertainment, making its absolute debut on Sony platforms.

There are however productions of great interest also among the minor releases: from the fascinating Jett: The Far Shore to the crazy and frenetic Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, from the multiplayer based shooter Hell Let Loose (free for PlayStation Plus subscribers in October) to the refined art of rally , passing through the colorful remastered Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania collection and the return of a historic franchise with Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey.

Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6, the protagonist Dani Rojas in the male version Far Cry 6 (PS5 and PS4, € 69.99) introduces a series of new features compared to the previous chapters, first of all a talking protagonist that we can see in action during the cutscenes and in the interior rno of the outposts: Dani Rojas, a former guerrilla determined to flee the island of Yara and reach America, but who nevertheless chooses to stay after the killing of a childhood friend by the troops of dictator Anton Castillo.

Played by actor Giancarlo Esposito, Castillo controls the territory with an iron fist, without any mercy towards any opposition, while his scientists work on Viviro, a compound obtained from tobacco capable of giving life to drugs that seem effective against cancer and that all Western nations are willing to buy in the millions.

Having joined the Libertad Liberation Front, we will have to try to unify Yara's dissidents under one banner and lead a new revolution. Succeeding in the enterprise, however, will not be easy: within three large regions, we will have the task of completing numerous tasks and eliminating the dictator's lieutenants to gain the trust of some factions.

The structure in short, it is the traditional one of the series, the open world full of things to do and the gameplay embellished with special weapons and original companions, but a few too many problems on the gameplay front and the lack of dubbing in Italian made us a little twisted the nose: we talked about it in the review of Far Cry 6.

Alan Wake Remastered

Alan Wake Remastered, the protagonist lights up an enemy with the torch Born as an Xbox 360 exclusive in 2010 and subsequently landed only on PC, the iconic title of Remedy Entertainment finally debuts also on PlayStation with Alan Wake Remastered (PS5 and PS4, € 29.99), a remastered version of the game that brings graphics up to 4K and 60 fps, better ed the cutscenes, textures and effects in order to adapt the visual rendering of the experience to current standards.

Beyond the technical aspects, it is however important that the plot and gameplay do not feel the weight of the years, and from this point of view Alan Wake behaves very well, involving us in the disturbing adventure of a successful writer who goes to the town of Bright Falls with his wife Alice for a vacation that can restore his inspiration .

Alan Wake and his faithful torch in a scene from the game The place is, however, contaminated by a dark force that moves in the dark and is capable of creating illusions or possessing people. This entity kidnaps Alice, forcing Alan to use all his strength in an attempt to save her. As part of the six episodes that make up the campaign, in addition to the two DLC The Writer and The Signal, we will therefore have to fight the darkness and bring back our wife.

People possessed by the dark fear the light , and so we will find ourselves exploring the scenarios always holding a flashlight to point at the enemies to break through the shadow barrier that protects them, and then finish them off with a few gun or rifle shots. A formula still compelling and fairly demanding today, as we wrote in the review of Alan Wake Remastered.

The other games

Jett: The Far Shore, the protagonist of the adventure Jett: The Far Shore (PS5 and PS4, € 29.99) is the new action adventure developed by Superbrothers. In the game, we control Mei, an astronaut sent along with some companions to a mysterious planet with the task of finding a new home for mankind. Using our Jett we will have to explore the unprecedented scenario and discover its secrets: a pleasant feature that however does not raise the general quality of a disappointing title. We talked about it in the review of Jett: The Far Shore.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl (PS5 and PS4, € 49.99) is instead a fun brawler starring the most famous characters of the animated series produced by the network Nickelodeon, in fact.
