Critical Consensus: Resogun impresses, Killzone maintains, Knack disappoints
The latest round of the cold war is over, with Sony unleashing the first salvo as the review embargo expired on its PS4 launch exclusives at 2pm GMT today. From a critic’s point of view at least, today marks weapons free.
Launch titles are never the best games a system has to offer, but in the vital early scrabble for retail purchase and positive column inches they can make or break the public’s first impressions of a machine. Exclusives are regarded as an even closer indication of what the console will offer, symbolising the platform holder’s target demographics, key production values and deal-making prowess.
