Recommendation: buy the PS4 version and play that on the PS5. It's the same game but cheaper, and even then wait for the price to come down.

Review.
This isn't as good as the original. I'm about 10 hours in. I've got past the must do activities and now I'm in the Forbidden West proper. And somehow I don't really care. The graphics are probably better than on the PS4 but not in any meaningful way. There's more detail and more leaves, dust and bugs in the air but nothing that adds to the game play. The cut scenes - of which there are many and they are often long - are beautiful but so what? I don't buy games to watch very high quality mini-films. The game play feels clunky and a bit awkward. Compared to AC Valhalla it feels very dated. The hand-to-hand combat in particular feels weird. During one must-win-to-progress fight the 'champion' eventually just stood still while I beat him up! And it's buggy. I've been stuck in the undergrowth twice. Machines have been able to put their heads through 'solid' objects. I don't remember any of these problems with the original - which I played through twice. Finally there's no build in the 'plot', it just doesn't pull you in to the game.

And one final thing ... when are we going to get a true PS5 game, not just a PS4 game with updated graphics? Yes the PS5 is bigger, faster and so on, but at the moment it just feels like a supped-up PS4.

Overall I would recommend waiting for the price to drop - a lot. Definitely not worth £70 or anything close.

Update: lost 10 levels due to a save fail. Really weird because it took me back a couple of days, not to the last session, and not to the last quick save. Known bug? I've stopped playing the game.
