Top Xbox 360 Action Games of 2011
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...
Fruit Ninja Kinect is great fun when played alone or with friends, and makes excellent use of the Kinect hardware, but it's also a little overpriced when compared with the iPhone offering.
The Gunstringer is the best 'proper' game I've played on Kinect and stands as a decent title regardless of platform or peripheral used, but it's a little shallow and asking for a lot retailing at £30.
If you're a massive fan of the series - and of Frank West in particular - it's still worth picking this up, but even at twenty notes, there's little to make this an urgent purchase.
Ezio's story comes to a disappointing conclusion in the weakest Assassin's Creed since the original.
Case West happily justifies the 800 point price tag. It's funny, challenging, and easily worth replaying a few times.
Vietnam isn't a dramatic reinvention of Bad Company 2, though I doubt anybody would want it to be.
Dead Space 2's phenomenal production values, including perhaps the best use of sound in modern gaming, ensures the game stands tall amongst its peers. Most of the time, anyway.
If you like Black Ops - and I assume you do, to be honest - then First Strike will quickly get its hooks into you.
Deathsmiles still feels as unique today as DoDonPachi did fourteen years ago.
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.
