The best sports games for PS4
Below is a list of the best PS4 sports games . These are the best sports games available on PlayStation 4, as determined by our editorial team.
20. Mutant Football League (PS4)
Inspired by EA’s old SEGA Genesis game, Mutant Football League takes an apocalyptic look at the grill, where quaterbacks can literally be slaughtered when fired. It’s buggy and deranged, but American football fans will appreciate the use of puns, while the fast-paced arcade action is reminiscent of the happy days of the NFL Blitz.
19. Windjammers (PS4)
There is a shortage of new arcade sports games on PS4, but luckily the legendary SNK Frisbee flinger Windjammers has stood the test of time. Effectively a 90s-themed version of Pong, this cult classic sees you racing around colorful fields throwing flying saucers at a variety of stylish enemies. This faithful conversion takes hold of online play, making it a must for both newcomers and longtime fans of the original.
18. OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood (PS4)
OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood’s slide controls, as tactile as the original, and with more combo options and challenges than ever, working in this two-dimensional title is anything but a chore.
17. EA Sports UFC 4 (PS4)
EA Sports UFC 4 maintains the breathtaking spectacle of the sport it is inspired by, but adds an arcade shine that should appeal to more casual fans for the first time. A more accessible fighting minigame pairs with the exceptional ground-based gameplay from the previous installment and with an expanded single-player campaign mode, this is a knockout for mixed martial arts enthusiasts.
16. PGA Tour 2K21 (PS4)
Golf Club used to be one of the standout indie sports games on PS4, but now it has a publisher and a budget behind it. PGA Tour 2K21 retains the features that made its predecessors golf simulations so solid, but improves the overall broadcast-style presentation and incorporates a number of licensed courses and pro players to compete with. It’s not quite a hole in one yet, but HB Studios is getting closer.
