Top 10 2010 Action / Adventure Games

FEATURE | ? Comments |

Author: Scott Vanderheyden  

2010 was a great year for action / adventure games, with plenty of original titles hitting the market.  A mixture of American, European, and Japanese developed games, the action / adventure genre featured both a refinement of tried-and-true formulas as well as brand new gaming experiences this 2010.  In no particular order, here are 2010’s top ten action / adventure games.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (PS3, Xbox 360, PC in Q1 2011)

More than a glorified expansion pack, the newest Assassin’s Creed title introduced a brand new multiplayer mode unlike anything else done in games before.  Featuring cat and mouse gameplay where players must hunt down and evade their enemies inconspicuously, Brotherhood brought a new experience to gaming audiences that kept the series from feeling redundant.

Bayonetta (PS3, Xbox 360)

What do high heel guns, attack hair, motorcycles driving into the sun, and a buxom babe all have in common?  Bayonetta, one of the strangest and most memorable games to come out of the land of the rising sun in recent times.  To describe Bayonetta is difficult, but basically it plays like a Devil May Cry game pushed up to eleven.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (PS3, Xbox 360)

A God of War-styled reboot of the popular Castlevania series, Lords of Shadow introduces new characters, storylines, weapons, abilities, and more.  While still feeling like a classic Castlevania game, Lord of Shadows successfully blends new and innovative game design with old-school gameplay.

Darksiders (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A Zelda-inspired game with a darker tone, Darksiders embodies the classic 3D action / adventure game of the N64 era.  Featuring a refined combat system akin to God of War, puzzles straight out of Zelda, and World of Warcraft mounts, Darksiders successfully blends game mechanics from popular titles into a unique action / adventure game.

Enslaved: Odyssey to The West (PS3, Xbox 360)

The PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword paved the way for Ninja Theory’s latest action / adventure release in the form of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.  Similarly an original title, Enslaved featured memorable characters, an unconventional story based on the ancient Chinese classic Journey to the West, and the unique style of acting that could only come from none other than Andy Serkis.
