5LEGO City Undercover
- Most suited for: children aged 5 and above
No list of the best games for kids on PS5 would be complete without a LEGO title. We’re still waiting for a true PS5 LEGO game, but while we wait, there’s a huge library of PS4 games that are playable on PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility. While we think any LEGO game makes the perfect choice for younger players, we have a bit of a soft spot for LEGO City Undercover. It doesn’t rely on any franchise, and has one of the best open world sandboxes, packed with so much to do.
Dubbed as a ‘LEGO GTA’, LEGO City Undercover is an open world game that sees players take on the role of police officer Chase McCain. Criminals are running amok in LEGO City and it’s up to him to save the day. There are plenty of levels to jump in, but players are free to explore the city at their will, with a whole host of activities to take part in. Minigames, races, secret collectibles, easter eggs – you name it, LEGO City Undercover has it.
