What is up PlayStation Nation?! We are here yet again to talk about the new “free” games coming to PlayStation Plus this month, and whether or not they are worth that unholy price of zero. Without further ado, let’s dive into what April has for us!
(DISCLAIMER: Plus Games are only free with an active PlayStation Plus membership.)
- Conan Exiles
While Conan may be the name, he assuredly is not a part of the game. Sorry, I had to make a joke, but unfortunately the namesake of the game is not the hero. You are simply rescued by Conan, then you get to create a character and try to survive. After all, you already knew this was a prehistoric survival game in the vein of Ark: Survival Evolved right? No? Well now you do. I have talked to many a customer looking at this one and unless you just want to play a survival game, this one is not for you. Also, heavy heavy sexual stuff in here, so do not let the kiddos near it.
Is It Worth Free? – To the person wanting to beat up other cavemen
Metacritic Score – 68
- The Surge
Do you like Dark Souls? Do you like robots? Do you like games that are not as good as Dark Souls? Did you like Lords of the Fallen? Okay, I am just asking a ton of questions now. At any rate, Soulsy Sci-fi the game could be fun for you, but it like the other game mentioned before (created by the same company), is a Dark Souls-lite, and that is not always a good thing. In this case though, it does contain a different setting than we usually find in these games, so the good outweighs the bad.
Is It Worth Free? – Yes, but you might break a controller if you are not sure what kind of game it is
Metacritic Score – 73
