The BEST Game Of April 2020 (According To Critics)

Published

Remake

While April wasn’t quite as impressive of a month as March was for video game releases in 2020, it still had a few big hitters that are well worth checking out. We saw the long-awaited release of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, as well as a remake of Resident Evil 3 and the return of a beloved beat-’em-up series in Streets of Rage 4.

However, there can only be one game to claim the title of best game of April 2020, and we’re going to reveal which one it is according to the critics.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake – Best Game of April 2020

While there were some other big games that came out, none were talked about as much as the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. After being announced back in 2015 the game finally launched on PS4, and most seem to agree that it was worth the wait. Square Enix took the foundation put down by the first game and expanded upon it in many ways, creating a deeper dive into the game’s world along with vastly improved visuals and a new combat system.

Of course, the game is not without its flaws, with the some feeling that the game is stretched too thin. This is likely due to the fact that Square Enix has elected to split this game up into multiple releases, which is a move that continues to be met with lots of controversy. We’ll see how things play out from here, but the first part is still a welcomed return to one of gaming’s most beloved worlds.

Over on OpenCritic, it can be seen that the game’s top critic average is at 88, which makes it the highest major release score for the month.

The honorable mentions are the aforementioned Resident Evil 3 and Streets of Rage 4, with the former releasing at the very beginning of the month and the latter releasing at the very end of it. While Resident Evil 3 didn’t receive the rave reviews that the Resident Evil 2 Remake did, most still agreed that it was a thrill-ride that made each second of its (admittedly short) runtime a blast. Streets of Rage 4 also brought the series back without missing a single beat, though it also didn’t really do much new to take things to the next level. However, both of these games should be played if you have any interest in their respective genres.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
