Top 25 Best PS4 Action Games


Whatoplay presents the Top 25 PS4 Action Games This ranking is based on a 1 to 10 scoring
system that aggregates critic and gamer reviews into a unique score called a PlayScore. As
much as new reviews show up, and are added, the PlayScore changes. Opening the list at number 25 is Infamous:
Second Son – This superhero-inspired game is a blast to
play! It’s a kind where you forget objectives and just traverse the map with your superpowers…
And when you spot something to destroy, you just do and it’s fun. Spectacular-looking powers. Adrenaline-pumping
action sequences and tons of side missions to keep you engaged. The morality system on the other hand, needs
a lot of improvement. A playscore of 8.56. – Number 24 is Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Number 24 is Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number “Brutally gorgeous”… perfectly describes
this sequel to the high-octane hit Hotline Miami. This top-down brawler-shooter is so satisfying
it leaves you asking yourself… “Why am I playing this pixelated violence?” Diversity of characters, more levels of mayhem
and destruction, good story and an incredible soundtrack. Wrong Number’s carnage might be off-putting
to some. For the rest of us… ENJOY! A playscore of 8.59 – 23rd place is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth 23rd place is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth This is how a remake should be. It’s bigger,
better and insanely fun! What makes this indie roguelike appealing are: The crazy randomness of every dungeon, hundreds
of hours worth of playthrough, tons of power-ups, cosmetics and skills to collect. This is sure
to keep you wanting to explore more! The narrative, however, can be disturbing
— blasphemous even — to some. Binding of Isaac Rebirth has a playscore of
8.61 Number 22 is Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Dante and Nero is back! And now with Lady,
Trish, and Vergil as playable characters. It’s a “Special Edition” for reasons. Better graphics, packaged with lots of content
(DLC, unlockable items and more) and a new Legendary Dark Knight Mode The visual improvements over the original
is clearly visible. But it still can’t hide the flaws that were there to begin with. A playscore of 8.63. Ranked 21st is Bastion This indie game presents a new take on storytelling.
Your every move is narrated… from picking a hammer to killing a boss. Beautiful isometric art style, excellent soundtrack,
and an outstanding narration that articulates the flow and twists of the game’s story. Now… if you’ve already played in on the
PC, the PS4 version doesn’t offer anything new to make it worth replaying. Bastion has a playscore of 8.68 At number 20 is Resogun This fast-paced space shooter is one of PS4’s
first games. And it’s one hella fun! Set in a unique cylindrical world, your mission
is to blow up every hostile aliens and “save the last of humans”. Simple gameplay, but with a fresh new twist.
Upbeat soundtrack that gets your blood boiling and diverse enemy types to keep you on your
toes. Short but hectic, Resogun receives a playscore
of 8.68 19th place is Far Cry 4 The action awesome-ness of the Far Cry series
continues in the Himalayas…in the fictional country of Kyrat! It plays pretty much like Far Cry 3, but with
several ups and downs like impressive breadth and graphical quality. An expansive, beautiful
world to explore and a super-fun co-op gameplay! Unfortunately, the plot and characters are
not as good as previous Far Cry games. It has a playscore of 8.70 Ranked 18th is God of War 3: Remastered – This is a definite must-play to those who
have yet to experience Kratos… no-holds-barred rampages. The game was never known for its plot and
storytelling. And Kratos is not your typical hero. Instead it draws gamers in through spectacular
adrenaline-pumping fights. Smoother combat, satisfying finishing moves,
phenomenal opening sequences and a perfect combination of beat-em-up and puzzle. God of War 3 Remastered got a playscore of
8.72 Number 17 is Axiom Verge A Metroidvania game — filled with jumps,
shooting and exploration. It polishes time-tested mechanics of retro games to a whole new brilliance. Tight controls, minimal story with surprising
plot twists, exploring the game’s mysterious alien world is rewarding and it’s pretty addictive The only downside is that the world can be
a little too retro for younger gamers. It looks a lot like an NES game. A playscore of 8.74 16th is Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship
Edition This is a revamped version of the fantastic
original indie superstar Guacamelee. It follows the adventure of Juan as he tries to rescue
El Presidente’s daughter. It comes with more levels to explore, powerful
new bosses to defeat, a better overall visuals; Plus! This edition packs in it all past DLCs. It’s a flashy, funny, and action-packed game. Guacamelee STC Edition gets a playscore of
8.74 15th place is Nuclear Throne A game full of fast finger-twitching action! Set in a roguelike universe much like the
Binding of Isaac. It boasts a wide arsenal of weapons and abilities
for each character, fast-paced gameplay that requires tactics and the increasingly difficult
enemy types and A.I. are reasons to not stick to one playstyle. Nuclear Throne’s difficulty can be daunting…
but completing a level is so much rewarding. A playscore of 8.78 Number 14 is Resident Evil HD Remaster A current-gen release of the game that started
the zombie craze. It comes with a few graphical upgrades without
ruining the game’s legendary horror atmosphere. Amazing character enhancement, good background
music and smart puzzling that doesn’t break the action sequences. The control scheme in the game is quite cumbersome
at first… Give it time and you’ll see how effective it is. A playscore of 8.81 13th place is Transistor This is one gorgeous-looking action RPG from
the same game studio that brought us Bastion. Beautiful world, that looks like a painting
on a canvas. Unique combat that blends real-time action and turn-based strategy. A well-written
story puts the game on solid ground, remarkable soundtrack, quality cinematic sequences, and
an impeccable narration. Perhaps my only concern is that sometimes
visuals obscure the game’s excellent combat. Transistor has a playscore of 8.82 12th is Dragon Age – Inquisition BioWare’s latest success features many of
the things they’re good at. A notable combination of RPG, action, exploration
and story, branching choices that leads to plenty of scenarios and endings. A vast open
world to explore. A cast of interesting and diverse characters and hilarious and thoughtful
conversations are fun to listen to. You’ll be hard-pressed not to sink hundreds
of hours in it. a playscore of 8.86 Ranked 11th is Middle-Earth Shadow of Mordor Drawing inspirations from the Arkham and Assassin’s
Creed series, it furthers the genre with its polished combat system that rivals any action
game of this generation. Bleak, dark and majestic open-world and a
novel enemy progression system that we hope to see on other games. One thing of note. The campaign slowly loses
its impact halfway through… overshadowed by the game’s notable free-roaming and discovery. A playscore of 8.87 At number 10 is Rocket League It’s one of those games that takes the gaming
world by storm. The mechanics is simple. Drive, hit, score! It’s football with monster trucks.
The key points are timing and teamwork! It’s beginner-friendly! Dozens of cool cosmetic
upgrades to make your own vehicle stand-out, crisp graphics and multiplayer sessions are
epic! Rocket League is an addicting combo of cool
booster-rigged vehicles and football. It receives a playscore of 8.88 9th place is Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the
First Sin Ahh.. the Souls series.. the games that attracted
masochistic gamers and challenged their beliefs of modern games being too easy. This is the best-looking of the series as
of yet. A revamp of Dark Souls 2 with all its DLCs already in it. Reshuffled enemy placements, tougher A.I.,
new weapons and armors and enhanced graphical quality. Scholar of the First Sin has a playscore of
8.93 Ranked 8th is Shovel Knight An indie masterpiece. Shovel knight may not
be for all… but the mechanics behind it is a perfect mesh between retro classics: Ducktales combat, Super Mario’s world map
design, Zelda’s town exploration, upgrade system and Megaman’s boss fights. If you ask me, the only thing the game needs
is a little bit more content. I mean.. the game was too damn short. Amazing… just short. A playscore of 8.95 7th is Batman: Arkham Knight A gem from Rocksteady Studios, and the finest
game of the Batman Arkham series. Amazing set of villains and allies, superb combat
trademarked by the Arkham games. Lots of varied missions and riding the Batmobile was a dream
come true! I only wish the boss fights were a little
more grand. They could have ramped up the scale of the encounter to a whole new level. A playscore of 8.97 At number 6 is Fallout 4 The most anticipated game of 2015. Where Fallout 4 shines is through its wide
range of features and intricacies. A unique targeting combat system, enjoyable crafting
and base-building. Bleak but hauntingly beautiful post-apocalyptic world. A very good “choose
your own path” system and a lot more! There were some bugs, yes. But the biggest
letdown is the graphical quality. It wasn’t up to par with other PS4 titles. A playscore of 9 5th place is Bloodborne The spiritual successor of the Souls series
exclusive to the PS4. Bloodborne’s world is huge and eerily magnificent
to look at. Some dislikes how it’s more forgiving than Dark Souls games. But you can’t deny
how good the graphics, combat, gameplay, monster design and overall feel of the game are. That said, long loading times are a pain to
put up with. Specially during those exciting moments. A playscore of 9.16. Ranked 4th is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt A vast open-world action game that defines
the current standard in video gaming. Explore, slay monsters, get loot, craft items, talk
to people, form relationships, and master the art of Gwent. These are just the few things that Wild Hunt
offers: Breathtaking visuals, awesome characters models, wonderful dialogues, great combat.
Tons of sidequests and additional content and an impeccable storyline to boot! A playscore of 9.24 3rd is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain The best and final Metal Gear Solid game from
the great Hideo Kojima. And as usual the writing is superb! Tt tells of a complicated and bizarre
story that grabs your attention from start to finish. Amazing cutscenes and cinematics! Incredible
graphics and an impressive action-sandbox quality. However, some pacing issues that may hinder
your momentum are frequently occurring towards the end of the game. a playscore of 9.28 – Number 2 is The Last of Us Remastered It’s one of the aces of modern video gaming
— an emotional experience as much as it is a game. The game is magnificent in almost every aspect. Excellent story. Beautifully-written and portrayed.
Endearing characters that grows on you as much as you play.
Upped visuals that makes use of PS4’s more powerful processing unit
Combat that is both granular and intense. The Last of Us is a must-have. a playscore of 9.36 And the best is Grand Theft Auto V Well.. no surprises here. This game has been
shattering records since its dawning. And with a very busy and active online community,
this game is still the best action game out there. Excellent single and multiplayer modes! Awesome
open world depicting the nasty and bright side of society, overwhelmingly relatable
characters, tons of content, even in single player. Balanced gunplay, driving, flying,
parachuting, jetskiing, and a unique 3-player switch gameplay. The best with a playscore of 9.37 And here are the Runners-Up…
