Top Action Games of 2010
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top action games of 2010, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
War for Cybertron is the first Transformers game I've played that nails the personality of the bots and it genuinely delivers a solid gaming experience alongside the nostalgia.
Monday Night Combat is an adeptly handled game. It's an exciting, occasionally thrilling online shooter with a genuinely engaging hook.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about Case Zero is the fact that it plays out almost exactly like a miniature version of the Dead Rising experience.
Metroid Other M is one of the most accomplished action games on the Wii, but it's let down slightly by some clumsy controls and awkward storytelling.
Out of the Shadows.
Darksiders deserves attention. It's a highly entertaining adventure, with some gorgeous visuals, devilish puzzles and exciting action. Fingers crossed the sequel will build on this impressive debut.
There are certainly better hack 'n' slash games on the market, built around deeper combat, but few games can match Enslaved's excellent fusion of gameplay and storytelling.
If you enjoy shooters then you absolutely must experience Vanquish; just know that you're not going to be getting much more than a weekend's play unless you get addicted to high scores and challenges.
A game that even a self-confessed turn-based hater had a great time with.
The Noble Map Pack allows Halo: Reach players a bit of a fresh frolic in some fancy new surroundings.
