PlayStation Now, November 2021

PlayStation Now

PlayStation Now updates in November 2021 with the introduction of four new games in Sony's streaming platform catalog. The highlight this time is represented by Mafia: Definitive Edition, an excellent remake of the iconic 2002 action that takes us to the city of New Heaven, devastated by crime and injustice.

This month's line-up sees plus the presence of the classic Japanese RPG Final Fantasy IX, the fascinating hardcore-style platformer Celeste and the original and colorful delivery simulator Totally Reliable Delivery Service.

Titles that, as you certainly know, it is possible use in streaming, therefore instantly and without waiting times, or download and install wherever you have a PS5 or a PlayStation 4, as normal products in digital format.

Mafia: Definitive Edition

Mafia: Definitive Edition, Tommy Angelo with a rifle in his hand Lost Heaven, 1938: former taxi driver Tommy Angelo turns to a policeman for protection in exchange for his testimony about the numerous crimes committed by the Salieri mafia family, of which he has so far been a part. Thus begins the campaign of Mafia: Definitive Edition, which among various flashbacks tells the rise of the protagonist in the world of the underworld amidst robberies, extortion, sabotage and bloody settling of scores.

Available on PlayStation Now for a limited time, until February 22, 2022, the game has been completely redesigned on a technical level and improved on the gameplay front, giving us a much more detailed and fascinating setting, but above all expressive and well-characterized characters, able to best support a compelling plot up to the 'last.

The progression between the various missions is linear and the freedom that the game world seems to grant us is only illusory, but despite this the various sequences can give emotions, the driving sections work well and the system of combat, the same one we described in the Mafia 3 review, integrates the rest of the mechanics more than adequately.

In short, the final result is an unmissable remake for nostalgics of the original Mafia, which manages to making the game more modern from all points of view while having to give way to a structure that clearly could not be changed and that, after so many years, shows its limits. More details in the Mafia: Definitive Edition review.

Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy IX, the protagonist Gidan Considered by many to be the best of the classic chapters of the Square Enix series, originally released in 2000 on the first PlayStation, Final Fantasy IX also offers PS Now subscribers the possibility of recovering a JRPG experience in many ways fundamental, halfway between the medieval settings of the beginnings and the style adopted later.

Protagonist of the adventure is Gidan, a young thief who one day decides to kidnap Princess Garnet in the middle of a theatrical performance but discovers that the girl was very happy to leave the obligations of the kingdom. The two find themselves so involved in a journey that will see them explore various areas of the world of Gaia, discovering its secrets, conflicts and the inevitable threat that moves in the shadows.

Final Fantasy IX, a sequence combat The favorite episode of Hironobu Sakaguchi, father of the series, Final Fantasy IX for PS4 can count on the wonderful soundtrack composed by Nobuo Uematsu but carries the limits of a work of remastering that is a bit too hasty and listless, which leaves in its place all the inaccuracies, glitches and botched solutions of twenty years ago.

The final result is therefore the inevitable combination of a work that was grandiose in its day and the distortions of a technically modest reissue, which does not bother to fix the original problems of this chapter but at least adds a set of boosters to make life easier for those who don't have too much time to devote to a progression system by force of co if dated. All the details in the Final Fantasy IX review.


Celeste, one of the levels of the Celeste campaign, Matt Makes Games' indie gem, debuts this month in the PlayStation Now catalog at indefinite time, bringing with him his load of hardcore platform action, a very pleasant pixel art graphics and the charm of alpine settings, which we will find ourselves exploring as the young but cunning Madeline.

Equipped with a level design refined in its ruthlessness, the game alternates increasingly tortuous paths, full of chasms and deadly traps, asking us to jump from one side to the other and cling to the ledges thanks to a very intuitive and precise control system, which manages to support us effectively during the experience. All the details in Celeste's review.

Totally Reliable Delivery Service

Totally Reliable Delivery Service, one of the characters carrying a heavy object Strong from an original concept, Totally Reliable Delivery Service looks like a bizarre moving simulator, placing itself in a very specific videogame niche. In the game we will have to collect more or less bulky packages and take them to their destination, but doing so will not be easy due to a deliberately exasperated physics.

The entire control system and physics engine of the title developed by We ' re Five Games respond to absurd rules, with deliberately accentuated inertia and input lag: a real obstacle course that in multiplayer manages to create really funny situations, but that alone makes little sense and ends up giving life to inevitable episodes of frustration. We talked about this in the Totally Reliable Delivery Service review.
