Top PS4 Sports Games

10. Everybody’s Golf 

Everybody’s Golf is truly a sports game that the whole family can enjoy. Although highly accessible, it features deceptively deep golf mechanics. You’ll also get to create your own golfing character from the ground up and explore the open-world golf courses either on foot or in your own little golf cart. That’s right, an open-world golf game! Plenty to keep audiences of all ages entertained. 

9. NBA 2K21 

NBA 2K21 is the latest entry in the basketball sim series, offering fast-paced, accessible gameplay, as well as full career and online modes to keep you slam dunking all year. For this entry, the graphics have been tweaked so that facial animations are a lot more natural, and the ball moves around much more believably. This all makes for arguably the best-looking sports game on the PS4.

8. NHL 21

Hockey might not be as big here as in the States, but that doesn’t mean you should give NHL 21 a miss. It offers solid, fast-paced action, making it a fun experience regardless of if you’re a hardcore hockey fan or not. There’s plenty of depth, particularly with the Be A Pro mode and with a thriving online community, there’s never been a better time to discover your new favourite sport.

7. EA Sports UFC 4

UFC 4 is definitely a case of evolution, rather than revolution. It adds some welcome features and tweaks some of the weaker areas of its predecessor, but broadly speaking, it’s more of the same. That’s not a bad thing, as a thriving online scene and narrative-driven career mode makes it a tempting prospect. If you enjoy mixed martial arts and the previous entries in the series, you’re certain to enjoy this. 

6. WWE 2K Battlegrounds

What’s better than sport? Sports entertainment! After the hot mess that was WWE 2K20, the developers have decided to offer a palette cleanser in the form of 2K Battlegrounds. A much more over the top affair, with arcade-style grappling, cartoony graphics and outlandish weapons, it’s a tonne of fun seeing these larger than life characters looking a little larger than life. Plus you can throw your opponent into the mouth of a waiting crocodile - what more could you want?

5. Madden NFL 21

Madden is the iconic American football game, and often the game doesn’t get the attention it deserves in the UK thanks to our own love of football (soccer if you must). But if you’re a sports fan who never played a Madden game, you’re really missing out. With a deep story mode, various online modes including MyTeam (similar to FIFA’s Ultimate Team) and local multiplayer, there’s something to please all tastes.

4. PGA Tour 2K21

A hardcore experience for hardcore players, if you’re a fan of golf you simply have to play PGA Tour 2K21. The precision it offers means it’s incredibly satisfying when you hit that perfect shot, and a thriving online community gives you every chance to earn bragging rights over your fellow putters. The graphics are also photorealistic, with some of the world’s most popular courses recreated in exquisite detail. And it taught us the difference between an ‘Albatross’ and a ‘Bogey’. Who knew?

3. Gran Turismo Sport

Having always been one of the more serious racing franchises, Gran Turismo more than makes up for a lack of silly fun in simple perfectionism. The graphics are beautiful and the controls are responsive and tight. The online features are fantastic, bringing a new dimension to the series, and a new place to show off your mastery behind the wheel. Truly one of the most polished racing games available. 

2. Fifa 21

FIFA is the pedigree of football (soccer, fine) games and offers by far the most high-quality footie experience in gaming. FIFA 21 takes all the most popular modes from last year’s outing, including career mode, Volta and the immensely popular Ultimate Team and gives everything a welcome finetuning. Players move a lot more realistically, shooting feels more satisfying and the speed of play keeps everything moving along at an exciting pace.

1. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

You never forget your first. After a few years in the wilderness, the Tony Hawk franchise is back with a full remake of the first two games in the series. With the same ‘easy to learn, hard to master gameplay, online multiplayer and those iconic soundtracks, it’s just as fun as it was two decades ago. An Indy 900 of a game.
