The best on PC
It’s time to choose our five favourite games for the PC for 2010.
1. STARCRAFTII: WINGSOF LIBERTY (M)
THE real-time strategy classic returns and is at once familiar and fresh. The three races — Terran, Protoss and Zerg — are as unique as ever, ensuring gripping multi-player matches, while the singleplayer campaign has a gratifying level of variety.
2. MASS EFFECT 2 (MA)
WITH a cast of intriguing characters, incredible visual design, solid action and choices with consequences, Mass Effect 2 is a landmark video game. The scope is vast, but it’s the writing and characterisation that anchor the experience.
3. WORLD OF WARCRAFT: CATACLYSM (M)
IN Cataclysm, Deathwing returns and leaves a trail of devastation in his wake, changing Azeroth forever. Along with the global overhaul, Cataclysm introduces two new races, heaps of new content and new elements such as guild-levelling.
PLAYERS once again take control of a civilisation and guide it across thousands of years of development. Becoming the dominating civilisation is as addictive as ever and the developers have done a good job ensuring this instalment is accessible for newcomers.
5. BATTLEFIELD: BADCOMPANY2 (MA)
THE real reason to play this one isn’t the singleplayer campaign — it’s the team-based multiplayer suite, where destructible environments ensure the battlefield is always changing.
