5 Batman Arkham origins
When it comes to Batman, I fall head over heels in awe and expectations. I would have to classify myself as a huge superhero fan and Batman’s no exception, so when it came to Arkham Origins being released late last year, that was a must buy for me. Upon purchasing the game I immediately returned home and proceeded to turn the game on. The story in Origins is one of pain and suffering on Batman’s part. He is a wanted man by the Gotham City Police Department and he is also being hunted by over half a dozen Assassins. This game takes place before Batman is an actual superhero. Starting off his crime fighting life, no one knows who he is or where he came from. The layout and controls of this game are very similar to the previous Arkham titles and the city of Arkham Origins is a basic re-model of Arkham Cities’ city. The overall gameplay is very solid and there are very few problems with the game. Overall a must have title for the PS3.
4 Kingdoms Of Amalur Reckoning
The Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning is one of the best RPGs out there Today. As the game starts off, you are a dead (Insert Race) who has been brought back to life by fate. You are a wanted person whom the Dark Elves are looking for to kill. The game features over 30 hours of gameplay and a fascinating world full of colour and vibrant characters who either want you alive or dead. The gameplay, controls, sound, and replayability of this game are all fantastic, although the difficulty does spike rather quickly in some circumstances but no game is perfect, right? I highly recommend this game as a must buy for any PS3 user.
3 Tomb Raider
If you’re after the best Action adventure/Puzzle game since the Uncharted series, then this is the game for you. With absolutely stunning scenery and graphics, a fascinatingly detailed story of emotion and hardship, and gameplay that kicks BUTT, this seriously is a game you don’t want to pass up. You are playing as the young and inexperienced Lara Croft who is hell-bent on finding the lost Kingdom of Himeco, the Japanese sun queen’s Kingdom. But upon encountering a strange storm you are ship wrecked on an island that has many unexplained mysteries and freaky inhabitants. The gameplay is very solid leaving you wanting more upon finishing this game. The game’s soundtrack is one of mystery and intrigue, leaving you on the edge of your seat in some circumstances and also leaving you rather scared in others.
2 Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
I have always been a fan of the Assassin’s Creed series, ever since AC1 first appeared on store shelves. Before I played Black Flag, AC3 was my favourite Assassin’s game out there. But once I heard that Ubisoft was making a game about Pirates, well, I was the happiest person in the entire world.
Assassin’s Creed IV is truly a work of art, it has everything from hunting whales, to diving for treasure in sunken Spanish Galleons, even owning and maintaining your own ships and towns. Truly this game is a masterpiece. You are the Privateer Edward Kenway who is looking for a life of adventure and Gold on the High seas, but once he brings down a corrupt Assassin and steals his uniform, Edward’s whole life changes. The controls in this game are extremely smooth and easy to use, the graphics are extraordinarily good and the gameplay is better than any previous Assassin’s game out there. Highly recommended.
Now for my favourite PS3 Game of all time, some of you may not agree with this title being number one on my list but seriously, this is well worth a buy
1 The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim.
The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is the best RPG in my books, featuring the best and most detailed scenery that I have ever seen in a RPG. To me this game is like the Gem of all Gems in gaming. The game however does have a few glitches, some are in the character models and others are in detail but overall this title is a must have game for any PS3 owner. I can guarantee that you will happily pump 100 hours of your life into Skyrim. There is so much to do that it isn’t even funny and the level of detail that has gone into every square inch of scenery is mind blowing. When I think of a good game soundtrack, I always think of Skyrim, the chorus is the best that I have ever heard in a videogame today and I would say that It will be the best in my books for many years to come. The gameplay is easy to get used to and the controls flow smoothly with each move in the game. OVERALL SCORE 10/10
