Top Xbox 360 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've always wanted to play as Wolverine without the muzzle, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is what you've been waiting for.
Prototype looked like it was going to be a hell of a lot of fun each and every time we saw it over its extended development, and it is fun, just not all the time.
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.
Dragon Rising has problems. However, and this is one very big however, it also does an awful lot right.
If you've been waiting for Ghostbusters 3 or simply a video game that does the classic series justice, Ghostbusters: The Video Game won't disappoint.
James Cameron's Avatar: The Game is easily one of the best movie licensed games I've ever played, but at the same time it's not good enough to stand alone as a must-own title.
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.
Ninja Blade is nowhere near as accomplished as the genre's heavyweights, but anyone able to see it as the roller-coaster ride it is should have a great time.
