Top PC Action Games of 2009
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top action 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...
If you're after a no-nonsense, monster slaughtering FPS that moves at a fast pace and looks pretty smart, you could do a lot worse than NecroVisioN.
In short doses Godfather II can be an absolute hoot, but sadly its shortcomings become more and more obvious the longer you spend with it.
If you've always wanted to play as Wolverine without the muzzle, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is what you've been waiting for.
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood doesn't make the most of its setting, but it's a solid FPS with a few twists to give it an identity of its own.
Mini Ninjas is fun, if you play stealthily, but it will do nothing to quell the growing call from a new Hitman from IO Interactive.
The lack of a proper single-player experience and the poor graphics will prevent Section 8 from achieving huge success, but the core multiplayer gameplay should ensure a healthy and loyal following.
Serious Sam HD is undoubtedly fun and relentless in its strive for all-out action, but with a recommended retail price of £18, it feels a bit light.
If you found yourself putting a ridiculous amount of time into the time trial mode after finishing the campaign you'll almost definitely like what DICE has made here.
With two great games, superb presentation and a sense that you're playing something different to the norm, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena comes highly recommended.
If you have the perseverance to stick with the game through thick and thin, to learn its ropes and to immerse yourself in all it has to offer, then ArmA II will last you for years.
