Our pick of the titles that stood out at the German games convention.
Gamescom might not have the glitz and glamour of US trade show E3, but it's absolutely massive and crammed full with the games we're going to be playing for the year to come. Here are our picks of the best titles on show.
Enslaved - Xbox 360 and PS3
There really isn't enough hype surrounding Enslaved; it's going to catch a lot of people off guard. Forget what you've seen in Terminator, The Road and Mad Max. In an authentic future without humans, nature would reclaim the Earth. This is the kind of world that Ninja Theory has expertly brought to life in Enslaved, with lush green vegetation sprouting from the mechanical carcasses of droids and machinery from a forgotten past. The world, story and character development will be the real star of Enslaved, but the Uncharted-esque gameplay looks more than competent enough to hold it all together.
