First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
The best games of 2010
- — 26 November, 2010 10:29
2010 was a huge year for gaming - arguably the biggest in recent memory. In addition to the hoopla surrounding motion-control, there was a dizzying array of great titles vying for gamers' attention. Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Starcraft 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Bioshock 2, God of War III, Halo Reach, Mario Galaxy 2: the list goes on and on. It was also a year filled with a few surprises, including PlayStation Move not sucking, Bad Company 2 being a better game than Call of Duty: Black Ops, the iPod dominating as a handheld games device and Gran Turismo 5 finally arriving at the tail-end of the year.
In the following slideshow, we pay tribute to our personal favourite games of 2010, with supporting links to our original reviews. Mark our words: many of the games listed in this feature are destined to go down as all-time classics. But enough of our mindless gushing: let's take a look back at the year's best games.
29 / 30
An improvement on just about every aspect of the original game, with the exception of one tiny aspect; the very final battle. Mass Effect 2 sees BioWare's approach to the role playing genre evolve beyond anything they've worked on previously, and gives us a glimpse of how both RPGs and shooters will begin to merge in the years ahead.
