Platinum Games' sequel delivers nuanced, non-stop action that stands among the best in its genre.
Driveclub looks nice and has a couple of good ideas about handling leaderboard challenges, but the core of it--actually driving a car--drags the entire thing down.
It's been a while since the xenomorph was worth being scared of, and while Alien: Isolation runs a little long, it's a hellacious ride.
In no particular order.
Going by what I've played: Recommended: Ninja Gaiden 2, Dead Rising 1 & 2, Company of Heroes, Crackdown; Meh: Red Dead Redemption, Eternal Sonata, Resident Evil 5, Metro 2033, Freedom Fighters; Avoid: Fable 3, Shinobi, Nightshade. Crackdown and the first Dead Rising may feel a tad dated by now, in both looks and mechanics. Those were some of the earliest X360 games, after all. Resident Evil 5 is really like fourth, just incredibly stripped down to the basics, i.e. shooting. Not nearly as much interesting and varied boss fights, action sequences, or environments; not even single a casual puzzle. I liked the unlockable Mercenaries mode more than the main campaign. Fallout: NV looks pretty good, despite all the bugs. Since the game was handed down to the creators of the original games, which were much more of true RPGs than anything Bethesda has ever made, it seems like the game actually presents you with choices that shape up your story.
