We are here at the start of the fall releases. Borderlands 2 just came out last week and many more games will be coming soon. Even though Halo 4 is probably the game I am most excited about, I will be writing about 5 other games that I can’t wait to play!
This is a first person game made by Arkane Studios. It seems like it will be a combination of several great games like Bioshock, Assassin’s Creed, and Deus Ex. It will be a very open game where you will make many choices on the different styles that you can play. You will have several different powers too, similar to Bioshock, as you go around each open-ended level trying to assassinate your targets.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based strategy game. You play as a squad of humans from all across the Earth as you fight off an alien invasion. You will try to save the other countries as the aliens take over, but you will lose countries and your squad mates. Each campaign will last for many hours and will have many random elements that will add to the amount played and the fun.
Assassin’s Creed 3
Although Assasssin’s Creed Revelation was a disappointment in the Assassin’s Creed series, AC 3 seems like it will pick up the pace again. It will star the Native American, Connor, who will be fighting the Templars(some of them will be the British) in Colonial America. It will have historical ties like the previous games, this time taking place in the American Revolution. This would be a great place to start too for newcomers of the series!
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
I played my first Need for Speed this summer with Hot Pursuit. Made by Criterion, who made the Burnout games, it was an awesome experience of realistic driving and creative driving scenarios. Most Wanted will be an open city similar to Burnout Paradise. The autolog system will be back where you can try to outscore your friends in challenges and races. If you want to get into racing games, there is no better option than Need for Speed!
Hitman Absolution is a return from the Hitman series. Like Hitman:Blood Money, you will go around the environment as sneaky as you can trying to kill your target without being spotted. There are several different ways you can approach each encounter and most of the fun will be figuring out the best way to complete each mission almost making it seem like a puzzle as you use trial and error.
