Hades is presently the best-rated computer game for PS5 and Xbox Series X on Metacritic.
The indie roguelike was just launched for current-gen consoles recently, its surpassed every rival released on the brand-new consoles since they debuted back in 2020, protecting a top aggregated Metacritic ranking of 94 on Xbox Series X and 93 on PS5.
Supplied the hundreds of titles that have actually been released on PS5 and Xbox Series X for this reason far its a remarkable accomplishment, not least given that for the previous, Hades has actually safeguarded an aggregate score greater than video games like Demons Souls (92) and Borderlands 3 (91 ). On Xbox, on the other hand, its topped Ori and the Will of the Wisps (92) and Microsoft Flight Simulator (90) (thanks, TwistedVoxel).
Surprisingly, its not the highest-ranked video game on either Nintendo Switch or PC. For the latter, that honour goes to Disco Elysium: The Final Cut (97 ), and on Nintendo Switch, its The House in Fata Morgana – Dreams of the Revenants Edition (98) that still declares the leading location. Hades is 5th behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Divinity: Original Sin II: Definitive Edition.
Hades previously released for PC and Nintendo Switch in September last year to a hugely-positive reception, and making leading marks from Eurogamer in our Hades assessment and eventually it became our Game of the Year for 2020.
