Games of March 2010

And the games are...

Battlefield Bad Company 2
(Xbox360 PS3 PC)

If the multiplayer beta is any indication of the mayhem that lies ahead of us we’ll be playing BFBC2 online for a long time. Add to that an improved single player campaign and you have a shooter that could give Modern Warfare a run for its money.

Metro 2033 (Xbox360 PC)

Metro 2033 is kind of like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games, only with a lot more spit and polish and player friendly mechanics. While S.T.A.L.K.E.R. focused more on atmosphere and tough gameplay (that really tested your patience at times), Metro 2033 seems content with its Jerry Bruckheimer-esqe approach to the whole post apocalyptic scenario.

God of War 3 (PS3)

There’s nothing I can say about this game except that it would probably be the best game ever made and if you don’t own a PS3 to play it, I say now would be the perfect time to buy one.

Assassin’s Creed II (PC)

Assassins’ Creed II was a mighty fine game improving on everything that was wrong with the first game and if you missed it the first time round, here’s your chance to grab the game. Be warned though; the game uses a new kind of DRM that requires players to remain connected to the internet at all times or it won’t save your progress.
Just Cause 2 (Xbox360 PS3 PC)

If over-the-top action is your thing Just Cause 2 should definitely be on your radar. Think of it as GTA meets Bionic Commando with an insane amount of verticality thrown in. And in case you’re wondering the Bionic Commando bit comes from the fact that you can grapple anything and everything in the game. The sky is the limit – quite literally!

Yakuza 3 (PS3)

Japan’s rendition of Grand Theft Auto finally hits the West with Yakuza 3, a game that looks pretty terrible but then again allows you to pummel people in the face with a plethora of sharp and blunt objects redeeming itself in the process.

GTA IV Episodes from Liberty City (PS3 PC)

Rockstar’s batch of DLC that significantly improved GTA IV now makes its way to the PS3 and the PC after enjoying exclusivity on the 360 for a while now. You can either download them from PSN or GFWL (Games for Windows Live) or pick up the disc as and when it hits retail. If you’re still on the fence, check out our reviews for both TLAD and BOGT.

Final Fantasy XIII (Xbox360 PS3)

You don’t have to be an Otaku to know that Final Fantasy is the biggest JRPG franchise on the planet and this month FFXIII will be available at your local retailer on both the Xbox360 and the PS3.

And here are some of the other games releasing this month (we're not particularly interested in):

  • Supreme Commander 2
  • Command and Conquer 4
  • Red Steel 2
  • Prison Break: The Conspiracy
