Diablo II: Resurrected

Activision for PlayStation 5

Release Date: Sep 23, 2021

Yes, this is a remastered version of an old RPG, but there’s a reason it’s been remade. The original Diablo II was a classic, and this version takes the game to an entirely new level.

Never would I have believed that in the year 2021 I’d be sat playing Diablo 2 on a console. And thanks to Diablo 2: Resurrected, with its wonderfully mapped controls and stunning visuals, it doesn’t have to be an eyesore or an ordeal. Some will instantly be put off by the lack of local co-op, but for those happy to play on their own or with others online, Diablo 2: Resurrected remains one of the best action RPGs of all time. It may be a bit clunkier than I remember it to be, but not offputtingly so, and once you’ve taken your first steps and started developing your character of choice, it’s hard to not be totally consumed by the game’s dark world and all that it offers. Diablo 2 is back, and until Diablo 4 emerges from the bowels of hell, it’ll do just nicely. Though I’ll probably be playing it beyond that, too.

While not a perfect score, it’s decently been accepted critically (ie professional reviewers) and players (actual people!) Small smile. In all seriousness, if you’re looking for a PS5 RPG fix, this is one you need to try.

Tails of Iron

United Label for PlayStation 5

Published on September 17, 2021

You might not recognize this game, it’s one you might give a try if you’re looking for something new. The hand-drawn art style might throw you off. The combat is this PS5 RPG is brutal. If you like Souls-like games, you should at least check out some gameplay videos and see if it’s up your alley or not.

Tails of Iron is a fantastic, brutal, and gorgeous game. Placing rats at the forefront of an adventure game was a bold move, and serves the world that Odd Bug Studio has created immensely. The battle between the frogs and rats is intense, the combat is challenging – yet fair – and the wide variety of equipment is sure to make any RPG fan excited to experiment with new loadouts. I enjoyed every moment spent in the Rat Kingdom, and can only hope to see more from Redgi, his brothers, and this fantastic world.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition 

Bethesda Softworks for PlayStation 5

Published on: November 11, 2021

Yes, it’s yet another Skyrim edition instead of a new Elder Scrolls game, but this edition is nice if you’re looking for a Playstation 5 RPG to get invested in over the coming weeks or even months. This is a deep game and a well-loved RPG for a reason. It’s not easy, but that’s one of the reasons people enjoy it so much.

For any console player who already owns the Special Edition, some of the improvements of the Anniversary Edition are already available as free patches. Those folks will find the Anniversary Edition a reasonably priced add-on. It provides a significant new quest, some new mechanics, a new mode, and lots of cosmetic additions, plus access to the Creation Club and mods. Just don’t expect a graphical facelift. For console gamers without any experience of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at all, the Anniversary Edition is definitely the version to pick up. With the Elder Scrolls VI in production, the Anniversary Edition is most likely (and hopefully) the final version of a seriously aging but still viable classic RPG.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 

By Square Enix for PlayStation 5

Published on: October 26, 2021

Are you ready for a wild ride? This was somewhat of a surprise hit in 2021, and it’s a super-fun RPG for the PS5. If you’re looking for something new and/or love the Marvel universe, you’re going to have a blast playing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy RPG. Yes, you heard me right.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a blast for its entire run of 20-plus hours, and when it’s not entertaining you with goofy banter and situations, it’s aiming directly at your heart. The twitchy combat is like strapping a high-class hyperdrive engine to a well-worn ship held together with duct tape and bubblegum: it’s such a wild ride that you won’t even notice when it falls apart. Though the fighting has its issues, it’s decent enough to ferry you through the wonderfully dynamic story. For Guardians fans, this game is a no-brainer. But even if you’re not into the superhero thing, it’s also the grandest space opera game this side of Mass Effect. Between Guardians and Avengers, could we be headed for a Square Enix Cinematic Universe? If so, Guardians of the Galaxy may not be a final destination, but at least the spaceship knows which way to go. I’ll be hooked on a feeling for a while.
