The game follows the story of Cloud Strife, who is a hired mercenary to help defeat Shinra Inc. 

Final Fantasy VII Remake is a classic RPG at heart, but it has some unique twists. Combat is the central attraction of this game. The battle system is overhauled and uses the Real-Time Battle system, which allows for quick and fast action, and you don’t have to wait for your turn to attack. You can use your summons to help during battle to assist you in combat.

You can switch between your party members to attack your enemies. Enemies have different vulnerabilities; therefore, switching between the party gives you a tactical advantage over them, which is woven very nicely into the game, allowing you to play as a team.

There is an option to switch between the graphics mode, which favors 4K at 3O FPS, while the performance mode favors 60 FPS at lower resolution. We recommend playing this game in 60 FPS for smooth combat and gameplay.

Every Final Fantasy has a new world, new character, and new settings, and you don’t need to play any other Final Fantasy game to enjoy this one; therefore, you will enjoy this game as a beginner. We recommend this game even if you are a beginner, as this game can be a significant starting point for your PS5.

As you progress through the game, you’ll unlock more powerful suits and gadgets. Players will need to complete missions to upgrade their abilities.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the launch title for PS5 and offers a unique blend of action and exploration. While the combat is fast-paced, it doesn’t feel overly tricky or repetitive. The controls are responsive, allowing you to quickly react to enemies and environmental hazards.

Besides the primary campaign, you’ll get to explore a large open world. Some sites require you to go all out in combat, while others involve stealth moves to clear the mission. Each area is filled with side quests and collectibles. Music is also outstanding in the game, especially the hip-hop soundtracks that sound very cool.
