Game News PlayStation Plus: 7 must do retro games!

As you already know, the new PlayStation Plus was recently launched with over 700 games from all walks of life, recently or released years ago. Now, let’s take a look at these nuggets back then that are still worth a turn. So fasten your seat belt, because we have a hell of a step back in time. Don’t worry, the quality is there!

Some images are from the original release, not the remastered release of PS Plus.

Final Fantasy VII

Of course, you know Final Fantasy VII, the cult work of Square Enix that just received a remake (and whose second installment will be released next year). So why not jump into the original game? With the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium offerings, this is possible. Take advantage of a remastered version – better than ever – with all of last year’s systems: turn -based combat, hand -drawn decorations … Why not, if you want to get into the skin to a gamer from the 90’s. Especially since, since Final Fantasy VII Remake was rewritten, you can discover it here Cloud’s original story, Sephiroth, the Avalanche group, and Shinra who wants to seize the energy of life on earth to run his business. A simple cult game for all RPG fans.

Jak & Daxter / Jak II / Jak X

So here we are dealing with a big name action-adventure / platform, made by none other than one of the most renowned studios in the world: Naughty Dog. Before Uncharted, The Last of Us, the team was best known for their platform games. So, after the crazy success of Crash Bandicoot, it’s Jak & Daxter’s turn to invade PS2s around the world. And so much to say about that remembered the series, with a tone that slowly becomes more mature as the episodes progress. From now on, on the PlayStation Plus Premium offer, you can discover Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II: Outlaw, Jak X (a never -to -be -memorable racing software). So you understand, the third opus is gone so far. But you have a lot to do and be amazed at the series. We downloaded!

Ape Escape / Ape Escape 2

Another game, another cult title! Do you know Ape Escape, this little platform game where you have to catch the monkeys? If not, know that this is one hell of a PS1 piece. It’s easy the first game to make DualShock mandatory : the controller with two analog sticks (the standard has only one direction cross). Thus players can move with the left stick and use something with the right, especially a net to catch the animals wandering anywhere. And to make nothing like the others, the jump key is also included in the R1 and R2 triggers. In short, a bit of a revolution for the time being. So if you want to try it out, the first installment as well as the second, Ape Escape 2, will be available on the PlayStation Plus Premium offer. What a wonderful time!

Toy Story II

While Buzz Lightyear recently had the rights to his own film, how about embodying him in a game? Well, we have to go back a few years, but it’s worth it. Here is Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue, an action-adventure game that takes place in the famous Disney / Pixar universe. You know the song, in this second episode, Woodie is kidnapped and the famous Space Ranger will do everything to find him ! You need to include it for 15 levels to accomplish your goal, all in five zones with key bosses. In short, an unpretentious platform game that does a good job, even with passages from the film and the original voices of the heroes. Plus, we’ll see here the beautiful remaster work done on retro PlayStation Plus games. In general, there is no reason to deprive yourself.

From now on, through the PlayStation Plus Premium, you can experience the Director’s Cut version of this masterpiece, with the added bonus of new cinematics-new camera angles and more scenes. Even better causes of tremor ! If you haven’t had a chance to play it, know that it’s a horror to survive the purest tradition of the term: fixed camera angles, doors that slowly open … Even now, we bet that you will not remain indifferent to the zombies in the Manor. The opportunity to find out where it all started, where the Umbrella company started its experiments. A great cult game.

tekken 2

Do you want to have a more advanced approach than Resident Evil? Then this great old Tekken 2 is for you! You should know this big name in the fight game. This opus takes the basics of the first stage to make it something even better, always with a four-button attack system. In the program, new counter-attacks as well as modes are always later: Survival, Team Battle and Time Attack. It was enough to make Tekken 2 one of the most popular games on the PlayStation 1. Also, for the anecdote, at the launch of the new PS Plus, the game appeared priced at $ 9,999 in the Sony store. An error occurred while switching to the new subscription service. So yes, if we tell you that Tekken is worth gold, it’s not for nothing!

Siphon Filter

We finally ended up with one last big name PlayStation, also made by a studio that is now making a lot of noise at Sony: Bend Studio’s Siphon Filter (Days Gone). Here, it has nothing to do with hordes of zombies: it’s action-packed third-person. But I don’t a fairly realistic approach to the genre. The player has many gadgets that he must use depending on the situation, and enemies will not hesitate to hide behind things to protect themselves. All in a story full of computer viruses but also terrorist networks. In short, a fairly modern game that still deserves attention today. So if you want to know the first steps of Bend Studio, you know what you need to do. Siphon Filter is in the Premium offering of the new PlayStation Plus.
