4Mortal Kombat 11
As ever, Mortal Kombat 11 feels a bit clunky to play. If you value single-player content and gory finishing moves, however, then consider it one of the best fighting games on PS4. There’s a free upgrade to the PS5 version, too, if you ever get your hands on one.
What we said: “Mortal Kombat 11 is well worth your time. There are multiple play modes allowing you to dip in at your leisure and some genuinely surprising features, including some borrowed from Injustice 2 such as the ability to field teams of AI fighters. Mortal Kombat 11’s combat is fluid and intuitive, and even when you’re losing it’s a joy to play. It’s a game that’s fun just to mess about with, but once you master its nuances it becomes even more rewarding. Once a gory joke, Mortal Kombat has evolved to become one of the most accomplished fighters you’ll get your hands on.”
