Few would dare to remaster a PSP game for modern consoles, not least one that didn’t exactly release to much acclaim. However, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII was an interesting title at the time, and it’s due again as part of the Final Fantasy VII remake effort from Square Enix. The portable title has received a stunning glow-up that restores the original game — without any story additions — and makes it playable on PS5, PS4. While you wait for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, this is a side story not worth exploring.

The PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077 didn’t just fix the RPG, it rescued the IP from the depths and effectively rebooted sales. The CD Projekt RED game has now taken on a new lease of life with record player counts and a much more optimistic outlook for the future of both the developer and the series. It was definitely broken at launch – and it should never be forgotten – but the Polish team has worked tirelessly to update the game and get it where it needs to be. The developer deserves credit for that, and the PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077 represents a more compelling experience than it is now playable.
