Reviews of PS4 Games for Women

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is for anyone who has played Tomb Raider and enjoyed it. Be warned that it isn’t for everyone: The Tomb Raider trilogy is known for asking the player to reflect on all the buildings, bodies, animals, nature, etc. that they have destroyed along the way to the end of the series. If that’s not your thing, you’ve been warned!

Overwatch is an insanely diverse first-person shooter. The proportion of its women players are more than double all other first-person shooters. Five million women play Overwatch because of the wide range in female protagonists and creative ways to kill. Most women can agree- it’s way more fun to play a first-person shooter if you can kill them from dropping bombs or giant gorillas.

Things We Liked

  • Not Many Females of Color

This game is set up in a series format, which is cool for video games as it’s something that a lot of us don’t see every time we play a game. The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series also has on and been nominated for a lot of awards, including best female vocal performance in a video game (Melissa Hutchison in 2013 and 2015), best character design, best action game, game of the year, best-adapted video game, and Melissa Hutchison won Best Performance by a Human Female in 2012.

This game is excellent for women because it includes a lot of tough and cool females as protagonists, including Clementine (the protagonist of Season Two) who is voiced by Melissa Hutchison. Clementine is the only protagonist who is active in all three seasons.

Things We Liked

  • Interesting Stories
  • Adaptable

Things We Didn’t Like

Look, this game is one of the best examples of how to craft a character of African heritage and female identity into a video game. It takes a mixed-race woman in 18th Century New Orleans, Aveline du Grandpre, and creates a fun and exciting game.

Things We Liked

  • Diverse Protagonist
  • Great Gameplay

Things We Didn’t Like

  • All About Thieving

This game creates a space for female leaders, and you see that early on in the game when Herald of Andraste gather advisors around an impressive war table to talk about the Inquisition’s plan. Four out of the five people at the table are women. 

It’s also a great game, complete with amazing graphics and impressive storylines.

Things We Liked

  • Plot and Setting
  • Graphics
  • Woman Characters

Things We Didn’t Like

  • A Little Extra

Hey guys im paul an avid gamer , This is my personal website which i created from scratch. Here you can check out all of our gaming reviews. I love gaming and have been doing it since i was about 15. i started off with a commodore 64 then progressed until i got my own computer in  2003 where i used to play games on the kitchen table while my son sat underneath the table watching.
Its always been one of my favourite pastimes hence why i now own a PS5. Ive had all the consoles in the past from basic sega megadrive to xbox and pS2/3/4. My favorite game to play is Fifa
