The Club (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)

There was a time when action arcade games were all about the action. To have fun, all you needed were some enemies to shoot at and a scoreboard to beat. The Club, released by Sega, was a valiant attempt to return to these arcade gaming roots. It removed the pointless window-dressing that bogs down most action titles and polished what was left to a killer sheen. The result is a third-person shooter stripped down to its barest essentials: men trying to kill each other in big rooms.

There are no hammy cut scenes or tacked-on stealth missions to wade through here: The Club is all about running-and-gunning from start to finish. With an emphasis on scoring kills as quickly and dramatically as possible, it was the ultimate way to get a quick adrenalin fix. Packed with multiple game modes, assorted firepower and hours of online longevity, it was easily one of the best action titles of 2008. The fact it was overlooked is almost criminal. If you prefer simplistic thrills over plodding storylines, The Club will definitely not disappoint. Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough!
