What makes a game world “big”? Is it the relative size compared to the player? Having an open world with an immense scale? The sheer variety of locations on offer? Or perhaps its different combinations of the same, offering an experience spanning numerous locations over time while still remaining engaging – something which PlayStation exclusives have been doing very well over the years. Let’s take a look at the biggest PlayStation worlds of all time.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
The scale of Rift Apart’s story stretches across multiple dimensions, some which our heroes traverse in the blink of an eye. When breaking it all down into different planets – the mines on Blizar Prime, the sweeping greenery of Sargasso and the sleekness of Nefarious City on Corson V – there’s a lot to take in. From quirky NPCs and wildlife to Pocket Dimensions, Rift Apart is Insomniac’s biggest platforming adventure and yet, it’s excellently paced – never too slow but also taking time to breathe and establish its characters.
