My Top 5 PC Games of 2010
1. StarCraft 2
Possibly the most anticipated game since the making of StarCraft Brood War. This game continues the story of Jim Raynor and his revenge. The game allows you to choose your own path to take depending on what you think suits you and your men best. The campaign is far from everything in this game though. The online play is what it is really all about. Competitive match making based on your personal stats in everything form 1v1’s to 4v4’s. There are five different levels to play a; bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond. Professional competitions are taking place world wide already for this popular real time strategy game. You can choose between three different races to play just like in the original StarCraft. The Protoss, the arguably most advanced race in the universe and the oldest. The Zerg, a race bred for the purpose of killing everything with mass numbers. Finally the Terran, the human race essentially.
2. Napoleon Total War
The next masterpiece by the Creative Assembly takes to the battle field across Napoleonic Europe. Take control of Napoleon in taking over Italy, Egypt, and all of Europe in separate scenarios. Generals now have more new special abilities to raise the morale of the troops near by. There are loads of new units available in the game to use and even more if you pay for the expansions. One of the expansions allows you to play a whole new campaign in Spain. This game more a less fixes all the flaws that Empire Total War had. The graphics can get a bit tense so if your computer isn’t up to par with the latest standards you may want to avoid this one
3. Assassins Creed 2
A sequel to one of the greatest games ever made and this one does not fail to meet the standards set by the last game. Experiencing the open play is what is best about this game. You get to venture around a very realistic world with great detail killing at free will. What else can you ask for a in a video game?
4. Battlefield Bad Company 2
This is the FPS everyone should be playing, not Call of Duty. Call of Duty lacks much of that which is realistic in a battlefield. Battlefield has the same great graphics, but just much more realistic game play. The options are much greater when playing Battlefield Bad Company 2. Overall a much better FPS than most would expect since Call of Duty seems to overshadow it along with Halo Reach on the 360.
5. Worms Reloaded
Shocked? Well this is probably an upset on most lists, but that is because I am a huge retro gamer. I was a huge Worms fan back when it was playable on the Nintendo 64 and this brings back all the great memories. Naming worms whatever you like and using a vast array of unrealistic attacks to kill or knock other worms off of the edge of the map. Another great feature of all worms games is the stupid comments the worms will make throughout the game. This game also allows you to play competitively online versus other players. Finally the ability to make your own battlefield is rather fun.
