Days Gone PC review

Another former Sony PlayStation exclusive makes its way over to PC, this time it is the zombie action game, Days Gone.

The last couple of years have seen three of Sony’s much-lauded PlayStation exclusives transition to PC.  Hideo Kijima’s weird walking simulator, Death Stranding was the first, closely followed by the post-apocalyptic action RPG, Horizon Zero Dawn.

I’ve long admired KT Racing and their WRC games. Whilst not as polished as the likes of the Codemasters Dirt Rally games, I could never fault them on the car physics. For an outfit seemingly more about the racing than the visuals, it’s pretty reasonable for them to adapt their WRC series for the Nintendo Switch.

Time for some off-road action driving huge trucks courtesy of Monster Jam Steel Titans 2.

Off-road veterans Rainbow Studios have been providing me with thrills and spills right back to 1998’s original Motocross Madness. In recent years they’ve pitting motocross bikes against quads in the MX vs ATV series. The developer has since moved on and invites players into the over-the-top world of monster trucks. Continue reading Monster Jam Steel Titans 2 PC review
