Top 10: Best Xbox 360 Games


XCOM: Enemy Unknown

The game returns to the roots of the X-COM series, differentiating it from the previously announced shooter XCOM by 2K Marin. Set in the near future during an alien invasion of Earth, XCOM: Enemy Unknown puts the player in control of an elite multinational military organization called XCOM and tasked with defending the Earth. The player commands troops in the field in a series of turn-based tactical missions; between missions, the player directs the research and development of new technologies from recovered alien technology and captured prisoners, expands XCOM's base of operations, manages XCOM's finances, and monitors and responds to alien activity.



Forza Horizon

Forza Horizon is an open-road game based around a fictitious festival called the Horizon, set in Colorado, USA. The game incorporates many different gameplay aspects from previous Forza Motorsport titles, like the large variety of cars, realistic physics and high definition graphics. The aim is to progress through the game by means of obtaining "Wristbands" by driving fast, destroying property, winning races and other driving antics.



Dance Central 3

Gameplay is similar to the previous two games in the series in which players follow dance moves which are tracked by the Xbox Kinect. The more accurately the players dance, the more points they earn. Harder difficulties mean harder moves for the players to follow. New to Dance Central 3 is the Crew Throwdown mode where two teams of up to four go head-to-head in a series of performances, dance battles & mini-games.



Assassin's Creed III

Assassin's Creed III is set in an open world and presented from the third-person perspective with a primary focus on using Desmond and Connor's combat and stealth abilities to eliminate targets and explore the environment. Connor is able to freely explore 18th century Boston, New York and the American frontier to complete side missions away from the primary storyline. The game also features a multiplayer component, allowing players to compete online to complete solo and team based objectives including assassinations and evading pursuers. Ubisoft developed a new game engine, Anvil Next, for the game.



LEGO The Lord of the Rings

Based on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, the game follows the original storylines of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events, "re-imagined with the humour and endless variety of Lego play". The game utilizes music and voice acting taken from all three films of the film trilogy. The developer Traveller's Tales has stated they toned down the slapstick humor found in other Lego-licensed titles.




The game is played from a first-person perspective and allows the player to undertake a series of assassination missions in a variety of ways, with an emphasis on player choice. Missions can be completed through stealth, combat or a combination of both. Exploring each level opens new paths and alternatives for accomplishing mission goals, and it is possible to complete all missions, eliminating all of Corvo's targets, in a non-lethal manner. The story and missions are modified based on violent actions, or lack thereof, committed by the player. Magical abilities and equipment are designed to be combined to create new and varied effects.



NBA 2K13

Like its predecessors, NBA 2K13 simulates NBA basketball games. One of the game's new control features allocates dribbling to the right analog stick on the controller, much like EA's NBA Live series. This allows a better 1-on-1 offensive feel to the game.



Call Of Duty Black Ops 2

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is a first-person shooter video game, developed by Treyarch. Black Ops II is the first game in the Call of Duty franchise to feature future warfare technology and the first to present branching storylines driven by player choice. It also offers a 3D display option.



Halo 4

Halo 4 is a shooter game, in which players predominantly experience gameplay from a first-person perspective; the game perspective switches to third-person when using certain weapons, armor abilities and vehicles. The player's head-up display (HUD) shows real-time information on the player character's armor system, such as shield status, information on current weapons and armor abilities, and waypoints for goals and objectives. The HUD also has a motion tracker that detects allies, enemies, and vehicles within a certain radius of the player.



Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter video game. Far Cry 3 is set on a tropical island somewhere in the vicinity of the Malay Archipelago, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. After a vacation goes awry, protagonist Jason Brody must save his friends, who have been kidnapped by pirates and escape from the island and its unhinged inhabitants.
