Games of April 2012

April is the month most gamers flock to their favourite hobby because it’s usually break time at colleges and schools (if my memory serves me correct). And even though this month isn’t particularly crowded with releases, there are a few games worth considering.

Prototype 2 (Xbox360 PS3 PC)

As Alex Mercer, a mutated resident of New York City, players used a plethora of devastating abilities to find out who caused the outbreak in this open world game from developer Free Radical. For the sequel, you’ll step into the boots of Sgt. James Heller, a retired war veteran whose family was slaughtered by Mercer. Now mutated and consumed by his lust of revenge, Heller must use his new found powers to hunt down the man responsible for ruining his life and wiping out half his city.

The Witcher 2 (Xbox360)

The Witcher 2 was a fine action RPG from Polish developer CD Projekt that only PC gamers have managed to experience till date. While that platform still remains the ideal one to experience this graphically intensive game, Xbox360 owners can see what the big deal is as developer CD Projekt prime the game for a console release. The Xbox360 port ships with a bunch of extras like the game’s OST as well as a ton of extra in-game content.

Devil May Cry HD Collection (Xbox360 PS3)

The Devil May Cry series has always been about over-the-top shenanigans and brilliantly choreographed fight sequences. In case you missed out on the older games due to the lack of a PS2, Capcom is now allowing new gamers to experience all of Dante’s adventures in HD with the DMC collection that includes all three last gen DMC games. As with most collections, this one is enhanced by HD visuals as well as Trophy support.

Kinect Star Wars (Xbox360)

Using Kinect to play a Star Wars game seems like a perfect idea on paper and hopefully Kinect Star wars will be the game fans of George Lucas’ sci-fi trilogy have been waiting for since forever. The game will allow players to step into the boots of an unknown Jedi as he experiences certain events from the Star Wars universe during the series’ prequel timeline.

Trials Evolution (Xbox360)

Trials Evolution is technically a racing game but one look at its trailer and it seems like anything but. The game carries on with the same gameplay elements as its predecessor wherein players navigate two dimensional areas with their dirt bikes and watch in glee as their riders ragdoll all over the place. Evolution however ships with a map editor which now allows you to not only create new maps but create new game modes as well. And like always, if you aren’t the creative type, you can always download user made content absolutely free of cost.
