Top Xbox 360 Sports Games of 2010
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top sports 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...
NBA Jam is a bloated, unnecessary title probably destined for a life in the bargain bin.
Tiger 11 still plays a fine game of golf, but it might not be enough to clear the rough.
PES 2011 is a good game; it's the best version of PES I've played on the Xbox 360 and PS3, and it's a step in the right direction. It isn't a FIFA beater.
As with many of the launch games available, Kinect Sports could have done with a little more refining prior to release, but none of this stops the experience being enjoyable.
The core gameplay is as good as it's ever been, the new city is great, and there's no denying that the sense of achievement when you finally nail a trick after hours of practice is almost unrivalled.
Yuke's has once again done a grand job with the UFC license, creating the most authentic depiction of Mixed Martial Arts on today's gaming market.
EA Sports MMA might not have the weight of the UFC license, but it's certainly got a fighter's spirit.
Let's face it: it's unlikely you're going to pick this up instead of FIFA 11, but as an alternative to play when football isn't on your brain, this does the job very well indeed.
If you don't own FIFA 10, and are looking for a football video game to help fuel your World Cup fever, then you should absolutely buy this game.
FIFA 11 feels far more realistic than its predecessor, and packs in new features. You could get by with last year's game, but you will be missing out on one of the best sports games of 2010.
