PlayStation Plus free game hailed as gaming's 'greatest hidden gem'

PlayStation Plus free game hailed as gaming's 'greatest hidden gem'

A second chance to play this gem

Sometimes an oldie is a goldie and that is the case for one PlayStation 3 title which some players still regard as one of gaming’s greatest hidden gems.

First released in 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, Tokyo Jungle is a survival action game developed by Crispy's! and published by Sony Computer Entertainment.

Tunic is also available on PS Plus this May! Check it out below.

Taking place in the year 20XX in a futuristic, deserted Japan, the city has become overrun by a vicious wildlife wasteland as a result of humankind leaving Earth and abandoning the animals to fend for themselves.

As a result, the streets of Japan are now home to all manner of wildlife, including dinosaurs, lions, crocodiles, hippos and more to make up 50 breeds and 80 types of animal to be found.

Tokyo Jungle has two modes: Story and Survival. Story sees the player complete missions centred around certain animals until they stumble across the reason for mankind’s departure.

In Survival mode, player or players (multiplayer is available) can take control of an animal and fight for survival against other kinds for as long as they can. Performing well will see you earn a spot on the Tokyo Jungle online leaderboard.

For those who missed out on Tokyo Jungle the first time around, don’t worry! The title is now available on PlayStation for all PS Plus subscribers and this is not a game to miss out on with many fans still praising it to this day.

Posted on r/PS3, one player shared Tokyo Jungle and said: “Remembering PS3 games: Tokyo Jungle. A very weird one in Japan. Animal based survival game. Unique but still fun to play.”

One reply labelled it as the “OG Stray” whilst another said: “One of the greatest hidden gems in game history! I still have that dumb hope that someday we will get a second one.”
