Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top adventure games of 2009, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
While it's not quite up there with the best in the Lego series, The Adventure Continues is still a fun romp, especially if you plan to play with some younger family members.
While Blue Toad's first two episodes won't keep you entertained for long, they're both good fun for all the family.
Unless you've got a brick for a heart and enjoy the sound of babies crying, you're guaranteed to fall for The Maw's irresistible charm.
Fans of Animal Crossing may feel that this is a little too similar for its own good, but other young gamers should have plenty of fun with their magical studies.
Publisher EA should be praised for creating such a unique game - the fusion of hardcore platforming and block-based puzzling isn't something we've ever seen before.
Overall RTMI is an impressive package indeed. The narrative is deep and engaging and there isn’t anything currently in the App store (bar maybe Myst) with a story as intelligently delivered.
If you’ve always wanted to command a group of ugly creatures that can sing Ring a Ring o' Roses, Overlord II comes highly recommended.
Rabbids Go Home won't be held up alongside true genre classics, but it's one of the best Wii games released this year and is sure to put a smile on your face.
If you've finished Professor Layton and you're looking for something that combines decent puzzles with a ripping yarn, this is well worth a gander.
Whether you're an established fan of puzzle adventures or just a newcomer to the genre, Beneath a Steel Sky is an absolute delight.
