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.
23 / 30
God of War 3 is more than an action game: it’s the conclusion to a commercially successful and critically acclaimed series that acts as the ‘face’ of Sony’s entire gaming brand; what Master Chief is to Microsoft and Mario is to Nintendo, Kratos is to Sony. As such, God of War III was burdened with a Herculean set of tasks. But while it lives up to the high bar set by the previous installments, it can’t quite bear the weight of bringing the epic story of Kratos to a meaningful end. It’s still a finely crafted action experience that fully showcases the PS3's immense capabilities but it isn't the satisfying conclusion that fans both want and need.
