With over half the year gone already, we thought we would take a look at our favourite top 5 games so far!
5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
Having originally being released on the Nintendo 64 in 2000, Nintendo decided to release, one of the strangest Zelda titles to say the least, on Nintendo 3DS. The game takes Link out of the better known Hyrule and strands him in the strangle lands of Termina, a dark twisted universe. In this time-travel themed game, Link has three days to try and stop the moon from falling and, in that case, burning the world. Although Princess Zelda makes only a slight appearance during a flashback, this fantastic N64 game have been remastered to perfection for Nintendo 3DS users and comes in at number 5 in our top 5 games of 2015 so far.
The Wii U haven’t had too many games to boast this year but we’ve given there hit Splatoon number four in our list. A light-hearted ‘Battlefield’, Splatoon redefines the genre of shooters taking away realistic violence and bringing some good ole’ innocent fun, whilst swapping blood and bullets for ink. The atmosphere of the game is uplifting, and although it is primarily a multiplayer title, the single-player mode is brilliant fun. Splatoon is packed with charm, plays like a dream whilst suitable for all ages, bringing a new experience to the shooting genre.
3. Lego Jurassic World
Lego games are always good fun and Lego Jurassic World is no different. We’ve enjoyed it so much its managed to take the third spot in our top 5 games so far. Along with the recent release of the hit new film in the iconic series, Jurassic World, this game also follows the epic storyline of the three previous Jurassic Park films, giving the user plenty to do. As well as playing through the films, you can spend hours going off story and exploring the well-designed open islands, finding all the little secrets and hidden areas on the way. The addition of being able to play as a dinosaur makes the experience even better. The producers have delivered on the nostalgia, along with adding a comical side to the story, and all in all creating a game that us lot down here have enjoyed very much!
2. Batman: Arkham Knight
Been out less than a week and it slots straight in to number two, one of the most highly anticipated games of the year has without doubt lived up to the hype. Rocksteady Studios along with Warner Bros. have produced a near-flawless game, which I have no doubt will be in a lot of people’s top ten list when they sit down at the end of the year. The previous Batman games were brilliant and they’ve only gone and done it again, with the addition of the Batmobile and a larger city to explore, the producers have created a stunning game in terms of both gameplay and the visuals. Flying around Gotham, coming up against the well-known super villains such as The Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, whilst teaming up with Robin, Nightwing and Catwomen; giving the gamer a superb experience.
1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
There was only one game that was going to take our top spot and it has to be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Let alone 2015, its one of the best games we’ve seen and played in a long time. It defines the RPG genre and the developers down at CD Projeck Red have produced one of the most convincing fantasy open-worlds, full of quests and land to explore; be it run, sail or ride. CD Projeck Red are putting out a free DLC each week to give the gamer consistency something new to sink their teeth into, as well as two massive expansions expected later in the year. The storyline is amazing to say the least, put together with the gameplay system and ridiculous (in a good way) graphics, this is as good as it gets and I’m sure will be competing for top spot come the end of the year. Kudos CD Projeck Red, Kudos!
