Astro's Playroom (1)

  • Most suited for: all ages

Astro’s Playroom is a double-whammy: not only is it hands-down one of the best games for kids on PS5, it’s also free. That’s right – this is a game that’s bundled with every PS5, included at no extra cost. It’s automatically installed on the console when you buy it. It’s been designed to show off the excellent functions of the DualSense controller, but it’s also an excellent game in its own right.

A platform adventure game that takes place over four worlds, Astro’s Playroom is a celebration of all things PlayStation. As you explore its PlayStation-themed environments, you’ll find relics – like a PSOne Memory Card or a PSP Go console. Okay, so your five-year-old might not know what either of those things are, but they’ll have fun exploring all the same. From stepping foot into a jumping frog costume to climbing through a jungle as a monkey, Astro’s Playroom is fun from start to finish. And your kids can learn about the history of PlayStation as they go.
