Top PC Games of 2010
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top 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...
Plain Sight is a fantastic concept that is ultimately let down in its execution. Still, it's a steal at £7.99, and is well worth checking out simply for the bizarre awesomeness of it all.
Ultimately, Front Mission Evolved is another case of needless westernisation, something that Square Enix is becoming increasingly guilty of.
The Force Unleashed II isn't a bad game by a long stretch - just a game that's over in a flash and almost entirely devoid of any memorable moments.
Nail'd impresses in its opening moments and is fun to hop into for a quick burst, but once you've seen a few of the sights you're left with a game that struggles to excite where it really matters.
Aliens Vs Predator is a great deal of fun, but there's no getting away from the fact that it feels somewhat dated and that the marine campaign is head and shoulders above the other two.
C&C4 is a curiosity, one that succeeds in moving the RTS genre forward and is at times brilliant fun, but it fails as a fitting finale to one of the most loved science fiction tales in gaming.
Surprises don't come along too often in the video game industry, but Singularity definitely isn't the flop everyone expected it to be.
The deranged duo's return is worth experiencing and is far more accomplished than its predecessor, but the gameplay on offer still doesn't match the quality of the characters IO has created.
Mafia 2 feels like a game that could have been great. Vito's rise might not be as littered with flashy set-pieces as I'd have liked, but by the end it's a journey most people won't begrudge making.
Neither Danger Close nor DICE are working to their full potential here, but underneath the hype and controversy there's a video game that's still worth a look.
