As a launch title for the PlayStation 5 it doesn't get much better than a follow-up to one of the best superhero games of all time.
Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales Review
Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

Perhaps the best in the franchise yet, and it wasn't even lead by either of the A or B teams...

The new consoles are a bit lite-on in the exclusives, or even, 'next-gen', category, as we mentioned in both our PlayStation 5 review and our Xbox Series X review. Still, the PS5 has landed a couple of timed exclusives outside of its in-house offerings like Astro's Playroom, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and today we look at Godfall from New(ish) Kids on the Block, Counterplay.

Here's a glint of the Godly review ahead of you:
From here it's good old fashioned fratricide as usual. You'll need to finish Hunt-style missions to acquire a bunch of elemental sigils that unlock a few lieutenant boss fights strewn across the three main overworlds of Earth, Water and Air. (Sorry Planeteers, Fire, Wind and Heart don't get a look in.) Between that and the final boss fight and a post-credits “level remix” affair, there's not much else to speak of.

I mean, sure, you have a mission select HUB area that's populated with exactly one other humanoid NPC to talk to. It's also home to a Cortanaesque, disembodied head who's intricately crafted out of bits of metal. Though she's rich in head-y, expository goodness, no great dramatic relationship ever blooms between her and the single-minded Orin. She's simply there to take up, like, 100% of the game's lip-syncing budget.
