There is no doubt that Sony managed to get ahead of Microsoft. The console war clearly has a winner, and it is easy to see why. PlayStation 4 has more games, better features and a much more open development cycle. We have seen times and times again how Sony looked at what the fans wanted and delivered as much as they could.
One the main thing that makes the PS4 so great is the number of games available, and 2016 is surely an exciting year. There are plenty of new titles that are scheduled to be released in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year, but there are also some amazing games that are already available. Since the beginning of the year, Sony had so many great games released for their console that it is actually difficult to track all of them.
Best Playstation 4 Games in 2018
For our list, we decided to select 10 amazing games for the PS4 including some upcoming titles from big industry names. The primary focus has been quality since most titles released this year still have a regular price. We are talking about great stories, good gameplay and stunning graphics that make the most out of the PS4 hardware. With no further ado here are the top 10 best PlayStation 4 games in 2018 reviews.
10. Detroit Become Human
Detroit Become Human is yet another marvel coming from Quantic Dream. The studio previously released Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain. All their games focus on great storytelling and exciting gameplay.
Their upcoming title, Detroit Become Human, reveals the story of Kara, an advanced android that became self away. Everything is set in a distant future and like with their other games, and the story is the main selling point. With multiple endings and stunning graphics, the game will surely impress the ones that love neo-noir story driven games.
9. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst continues the story of the original game that was released several years ago. Not much has changed which can be a good thing. We have the same intense gameplay with a somewhat free-roaming experience over the skyscrapers of a futuristic city.
The game has been received with rather positives on 2017 reviews. It features stunning graphics and excellent gameplay. Sadly the story is not that impressive, but the game is still quite fun especially for the ones that played the original.
8. Far Cry Primal
Far Cry Primal is nothing like the previous games. It still offers the same experience but in a completely different setting. This time around the player is thrown in the middle of an ancient world dominated by prehistoric animals that can be tamed.
The game is still an FPS, but the weapons and gameplay are quite different. As for the story, nothing too stellar about it but what recommends Far Cry Primal the most is the gameplay.
7. Star Wars: Battlefront
The price of Star Wars: Battlefront was dropped a lot making it actually worth purchasing. When it was released, the game has been quite disappointing due to its lacking story mode and annoying bugs.
Most of the technical problems of the game have been fixed. It is now an enjoyable tile that is recommended mostly for the ones that enjoy multiplayer shooters. The graphics are phenomenal and now that the price has been lowered, Star Wars: Battlefront is indeed a steal deal.
6. Mortal Kombat XL
There are very few other games that are as fun as Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat XL is the latest game released for the PS4, and it is surprisingly good. It will provide countless hours of hot seat fun with friends or family.
Just like the previous games, Mortal Kombat XL includes a wide selection of playable characters and several new ones. The mechanics are pretty much the same, but the graphics received a significant boost.

5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been surrounded by a lot of drama inside Konami. However, the end product has been received with positive reviews due to its creativity, decent story, amazing graphics and interesting and fun mechanics.
The game offers an open-world design that enables ultimate freedom. Game progression works flawlessly even if the player has so much freedom.
4. Dark Souls III
Dark Souls III is not a game for everyone. This dark RPG might be just a bit too hardcore for some due to its high difficulty level. However, it can be enjoyed even by the ones that did not play the previous titles.
The game continues the story and comes with some new gameplay improvements. Its graphics take full advantage of the power offered by the PS4 while the unique online system allows players to join games in a seamless way.
3. Overwatch – Origins Edition
Overwatch has been a surprise for many Blizzard fans. This action packed shooter was originally advertised as a casual game, but as it turns out, Overwatch is a challenging yet rewarding experience for the avid FPS enthusiasts.
The game does not have a single player mode which means there is no story to follow. However, the multiplayer mode is quite enjoyable. Blizzard also managed to come up with a progression system that feels rewarding, yet it does not give players any kind of advantage over others.
Bethesda rarely disappoints. There were some concerns around Doom but as it turns out the game received positives extremely in 2018 reviews. The campaign of the game is surprisingly good. There are many different weapons that can be used and a rather decent story to be explored.
In terms of game mechanics, Doom is a fairly simple game yet rewarding at the same time. The violent combos and finishing moves add a certain satisfaction that makes shooting bullets less of a focal point.
1. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is now one of the best games available for the PS4 that was released in 2018. The game pushes the console’s hardware to its limits and delivers incredible graphics.
The game itself has an amazing story that will keep everyone on their toes. The game offers many creative ways to solve puzzles and deal with enemies. Everything is sprinkled with great cut scenes and fantastic voice acting.
PlayStation 4 has a lot of great games being released in 2018. We have seen old heroes coming back one last time as well as new franchises. Game developers pushed their creativity to the limits and also abused as much as they could the hardware of the console to deliver amazing graphics.
There are also a lot of bad, poorly executed games but fortunately, gamers and game critics are quite keen on getting their opinions out. It is quite easy to tell if a game is good or not by looking at its metacritic score. One of the practices that still persisted is preorders. However, there are plenty of promising games. All the titles on our list are considered triple A games and received positives in 2018 reviews.
