Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top action games of 2011, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
As a technical showcase, Killzone 3's campaign is a marvel; as a six-hour slice of interactive entertainment, it's a definite disappointment.
For all its lack of 3D showboating, Shadow Wars offers genuine depth.
There's plenty of things to like in LEGO Star Wars III, though some of them might be buried a little too deep for younger players.
Escalation has plenty of variety on offer, and the quintet of new competitive maps will slot extremely nicely into the broader rotation.
Brink is a game that deserves a chance, and those with a penchant for the multiplayer shooter owe it to themselves to give it a look.
Dungeon Siege 3 is noticeably pricier than the competition in the genre, but it's a modernised take on dungeon crawling that brings a few new ideas to the series with superior production values.
This is the perfect game to sit around on an iDevice for occasional high-score runs.
Creeping through the isolated and hostile corridors of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet makes for an unexpected summer delight.
Star Fox 64 3D is no masterpiece. All the same, it's one of the best-looking games on the platform, and a respectful restoration that will please the fans.
It can feel a little dated in terms of its approach to combat, but the game is so beautiful, so different, so utterly weird and wonderful that this is of no real consequence.
