Remember standing in line at the local video game store? Well then, I’m sure you remember the price. With new releases being priced in the £30.00-£40.00 range, sometimes it’s relieving to find some on the bottom shelf priced under £15.00.
So here it is! These are the 5 Best Xbox 360 Games you’ve Never Played:
#5: “Velvet Assassin”
Based on the true story, you play a WWII era British spy named Violette Summer. Your goal is to bring down the Nazi party deep behind enemy lines. So if you’re into sneaking around Nazi occupied territory, taking out guards, and enjoy the history, I would highly recommend this 2009 release.
Released in 2008, “Viking: Battle for Asgard” is a must have in your game collection. This game is an open world experience full of action and adventure. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already. Hack and slash your way through this epic journey.
#3: “Quake 4″
As a sequel to “Quake 2″, this 2005 release was received relatively well by most. You play as Matthew Kane, who is bound and determined to eliminate an alien race known as “The Strogg”. Underneath the graphical errors, there is a really good game.
#2: “The Darkness”
Developed in 2005 by Starbreeze Studios, this first-person shooter lets you tap into the dark side of the Italian Mafia. Playing as Jackie Estacado, your goal is to make your way through the Italian Mob using modern weapons and dark magic to eliminate threats and take out the man who tried to assassinate you.
#1: “Dark Sector”
This third-person shooter released in 2004 went below the nose of a lot of loyal franchise gamers. You play as Hayden Tenno, a troubled C.I.A. clean-up man. A virus has taken out the country of “Lasria” and your right arm. Luckily, it has been replaced with the ability to use a three-pronged weapon known as the “Glaive” which will come in handy while taking out Robert Mezner, the man responsible for the terror in Lasria.
So there you have it! The “5 Best XBox 360 Games You’ve Never Played.” While at the game store next time, be sure to search for these little known classics. Most are visually stunning, packed with action, and have very strong story lines. Even if you have played a few minutes, be sure to follow through. Most of these games develop their climax later in the game. Keep on playing!
