The 10 PlayStation 3 games you should revisit on PS4 right now

7) Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009)

Loved last year's Arkham Knight on PS4? Then go back to where it all began with Batman: Arkham Asylum, which kicked off the amazing series and was at the time arguably the best comic superhero game to date.

Arkham Asylum oozes atmosphere as you guide the Caped Crusader through the titular facility, bashing baddies with a combination of fists, wits, and stealth. In fact, now you can play Arkham Asylum and larger sequel Arkham City on PS4 via the Return to Arkham remastered bundle, or play each game separately on PlayStation Now.

8) Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time (2009)

You should absolutely play this year's awesome Ratchet & Clank revival, which reimagines the original 2002 entry – but then you should also loop back on Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, one of the series' best adventures and a massively polished experience throughout.

Despite some differences, it's largely more of the same… but we're not complaining. You'll find super-fun cartoonish combat with hilarious weapons, excellent platform-action and puzzle-solving elements, and plenty of humour as well. It's available via PlayStation Now.

9) Ico (2001)

Before next month's The Last Guardian finally, finally debuts, why not go back to the start? Fumito Ueda's affecting and mystifying adventure, about a boy trying to guide a princess through a puzzling castle, actually debuted on PS2, but this sharp PS3 remaster still holds a place in our hearts.

Of course, the director's master touch was also applied to Shadow of the Colossus (about a different boy and his horse taking down a series of giants), and both classic PS2 games are on PlayStation Now.

10) MotorStorm: Apocalypse (2011)

We're a little bummed that the less extreme earlier MotorStorm games aren't on PS4, and also that the series disappeared and Evolution Studios folded – but even so, MotorStorm: Apocalypse is worth a fresh look through PlayStation Now.

Apocalypse shifted gears from the jungle to a gritty urban setting filled with destructible terrain and a bit of combat between the racers. It's a different flavour, but still lots of fun once you're whipping through crumbling skyscrapers or alongside a crashing jetliner.
