In spite of the fact that Xbox One exclusive releases have been rather thin on the ground, there are numerous titles that will appeal to a range of gamers, from FIFA 18 to Ghost Recon Wildlands and Cuphead.
2017 has given us a long list of excellent, action-packed games that offer a world of console entertainment – so much so that it has actually become rather difficult to keep track of all of them. Luckily for you, I’ve pulled out my detective kit to find the games that are certainly worth your while.
Forza Motorsport 7
Possibly one of the most stunning racing games I have come to love this year, Forza Motorsport 7 boast some beautiful graphics and is a force to reckoned with in terms of console imagery.
Developed by Turn10, who have often been used to display the very best visuals on Xbox consoles, this game already looks amazing on the Xbox One S, which means we have even more to look forward to with the Xbox One X.
If you have been MIA for the past few years, Destiny is one of Bungie’s best action shooter console games with excellent RPG elements that were created by the talented team at Bungie, who also happen to be responsible for the ever-popular Halo.
For those of you that have been keeping up with the latest in gaming, I suggest you take a shot at Destiny 2. The story has become a lot stronger, the graphics are nothing short of noteworthy and the addictive gameplay will have you glued to your screen for hours. Embark on a mission to save the galaxy and prepare for some brutal Raids.
2K seems to have an endless conveyor belt of top quality releases, and NBA 2K18 is no exception. You’ll experience insane depth in every single mode, incredibly realistic visuals and ESPN-style presentation that will make you feel like you’re right there in the real action. In fact, my time playing was so true to life I almost paid a visit to my local CAD casino and placed a bet on my game.
MyCAREER makes an appearance again, and this time it’s even better because there is more focus on living the NBA dream rather than the tale of another player. If you are not an experienced basketball player, and by that I mean basketball gamer, then fear not because 2K has made the game a lot more welcoming.
FIFA has never been so good, with the latest addition to their catalogue of titles offering a myriad of new animations, an attractive new look thanks to the move to Frostbite, the second season of The Journey and the persistent domination of the Ultimate Team.
EA has presented an absolute blinder with FIFA 18, with spine-tingling action and wonderful near-photorealistic graphics making this one of the best games we have come to love and know in 2017.
