PlayStation Store: Remastered & Retro Sale for PS4 and PS5
Resident Evil 3 Remake – Horror game remake test video
With the new edition, the horror classic Resident Evil 3 has been completely overhauled technically. Not only were the graphics brought up to date and the staging made significantly more complex, the control and camera work were also adapted to today’s habits. Instead of fixed camera perspectives, we now control the two main characters from the shoulder perspective. Since the action component is also significantly greater than in the remake of Resident Evil 2, which relied more on classic survival horror, the new Resident Evil 3 plays almost like a third person shooter with horror elements. The playing time is relatively short, also because Capcom has deleted passages here and there, but there is a new asymmetric multiplayer.

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection – PS4 remaster and PS3 original in graphic comparison
With the Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy you get the complete story about the master assassin Ezio Auditore, with the campaigns from Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, including all add-ons. To this day, Assassin’s Creed 2 is considered a milestone in the series, which has fully exploited the potential that was only hinted at in the first part. If you fancy the classic mix of sneaking, action and climbing, you’ve come to the right place. The open-world game sends us to Italy in the 15th century and starts in Florence, but later also lets us travel to Venice, the Vatican City and various other regions. The spin-offs take us to Rome and Constantinople, among other places.

Doom – Test video: The old-school shooter is so modern
With the Doom Slayers Edition you get the shooter classics Doom 1, 2 and 3 as well as the reboot from 2016 in one package. The first two parts are considered to be the games that didn’t invent the first person shooter genre, but made it popular. Compared to these two titles, which focus on fast and hard action, Doom 3, released in 2003, takes a different approach and focuses more on horror elements and a dark atmosphere, which was the fashion at the time following the huge success of Half-Life . The 2016 reboot of the series basically returns to the fast-paced gameplay of the beginnings, even if it introduces some new elements like the spectacular glory kills.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – Single Player Story Trailer
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a re-imagining of the very first Modern Warfare from 2007, which made a significant contribution to the current success of the shooter series. After Call of Duty 1 to 3 had played in the Second World War, the fourth part was the first to venture into modern warfare, which also led to controversial discussions due to the locations in the Middle East. But the multiplayer also contributed to the success, introducing the motivating progression system that we still know from the series today. Above all, the remastered version provides graphical improvements such as new textures, animations and effects.

Bayonetta – test video
With Bayonetta and Vanquish you can get two highly acclaimed games from the studio Platinum Games (NieR: Automata) together in a bundle. Bayonetta is a hack & slash action game that impresses above all with its spectacular fights. We play the witch Bayonetta, who teaches demons to fear with guns on her hands and feet as well as with various melee weapons and instruments of torture. Long combos and kills that are as stylish as possible are rewarded by the game. Vanquish, on the other hand, is a third person shooter in the science fiction scenario. As a battlesuit-equipped agent, we get involved in the late 21st century wars over scarce resources.

Catherine: Full Body is not only a greatly improved, but also an expanded new edition of a puzzle and adventure classic. We play Vincent, who is in a relationship with three different women at the same time (there were only two in the original) and wants to prevent them from finding out about each other. Most of the day we hang out in a bar, engaging in excellently written dialogue and making important decisions that affect the further course of the story. At night, the puzzle gameplay comes into play: in order to create an escape route for Vincent from his nightmares, we have to move blocks. The fact that the strange mixture works is not least due to the great story.

Metro Redux – End Times Shooter Pack Launch Trailer
With Metro Redux you get modernized versions of the two horror shooters Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light from the Ukrainian studio 4A Games. The improvements are particularly evident in Metro 2033, which not only looks a lot prettier than the original, but also includes new gameplay elements carried over from Metro: Last Light, such as stealth kills. Both shooters are set in a post-apocalyptic version of a nuclear war-ravaged Moscow, where the last surviving humans hide from radiation and fearsome mutants in dark Metro tunnels. They are characterized above all by their gripping end-time atmosphere.

MediEvil – PS1 Remake Gameplay Trailer, Release in 2019
MediEvil is the PS4 remake of a PS1 classic. In the action-adventure we play the hero Sir Daniel Frotesque, who is resurrected to fight again against the witcher Zarok and his armies, who took his life once before. Technically, the remake is very successful: the art design, which skillfully combines gothic and comic looks, has been beautifully transferred to modern graphics. In terms of gameplay and camera work, however, you have to live with the fact that the new edition remains very close to the original and has also taken over a few of the old weaknesses. After all, feelings of nostalgia are guaranteed for all those who grew up with the PS1.

Alan Wake Remastered – Trailer for the remaster shows comeback of Alan Wake
The remaster of Alan Wake by Remedy (Max Payne, Control), which was released around six months ago, offers graphic improvements such as 4K resolution and, in addition to the main game, also contains the two expansions The Signal and The Writer. Alan Wake is a mystery action game that tells a horror story in the style of a Stephen King novel. We play the writer Alan Wake, who travels with his wife to the idyllic little town of Bright Falls in search of inspiration for his next novel. There, however, he is quickly confronted with inexplicable events and shadowy beings that he must fight with light and force of arms.

Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, also known under the name “Edna breaks out”, is a point and click adventure from Germany and is considered one of the best titles from Daedalic, which is also known for the Deponia series. It owes its good reputation mainly to the offbeat characters and the macabre humor: We play Edna, who wakes up in a psychiatric hospital with no memories and tries to escape with her talking stuffed rabbit, Harvey. Harvey, however, has a fairly violent disposition and offers Edna advice that suggests she may be in the clinic for a good reason. Both the graphics and the controls have been modernized for the Anniversary Edition.
