It ain’t Pro for nothing.
Even with the PS5 launching in just a few months, the PS4 is still one of the best consoles you can buy today. Since the introduction of the more powerful PS4 Pro, some of the games on the platform have released updates that take advantage of that extra power, resulting in games that look even more beautiful and extra framerates that make it more fluid.
The games we’ve listed are already fan favorites and already perform well on the normal PS4, and the PS4 Pro enhancements just make it a lot better. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite PS4 Pro-enhanced games:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – The latest Call of Duty game offers improved framerates and graphical upgrades that make it even more desirable to play.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Valhalla may be launching soon, but playing Odyssey on the PS4 Pro gave us a deeper appreciation for the effort done on wonderful landscapes in the game. It uses dynamic resolution to keep frame rates stable with a maximum resolution of 1620p, and it has never looked better.
Resident Evil 2 – Playing this horror game on the PS4 Pro gives you a choice between playing it at 4K 30 fps or a lower resolution but at a smoother 60 fps. I went with 60 fps, and the buttery smooth animations gave another layer of realism to the game.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – Even if it was released more than four years ago, the supposedly last Nathan Drake adventure brought out visuals at a crisp 1440p with HDR made even better on the PS4 Pro.
Horizon Zero Dawn – Already considered one of the best looking games on the platform. The game outputs at 2160p checkerboard that brings out more detail in the landscapes down to Aloy’s outfit.

God of War – One of the PS4’s best games takes front and center with this installment. The game lets you choose between performance or resolution on the PS4 Pro.
Marvel’s Spider-Man – Spidey’s latest adventure is probably one of the best-looking games we’ve played. Buildings are so detailed they already look photorealistic, which was made even better with HDR.

Red Dead Redemption 2 – The already looks great on the normal PS4, but the extra power provided by Pro means you’re getting more graphical details along with smoother frame rates which is the best way to play RDR2.
