The 10 Best new games
Thursday 14 June 2012
1. Angry Birds: Space (iOS/Android)
An addictive cracker. It's been downloaded 100 million times and at 69p it's a fantastic way to keep boredom at bay.
2. Fez Xbox 360
You play Gomez, the 2D being who gets a magical fez that lets him see into the third dimension. Highly sophisticated. Sort of like a cleverer version of Mario.
3. Diablo III (PC)
Mark III has been much anticipated. Choose from spell-wielding wizards to cross bow-twanging demon hunters and collect hidden loot as you battle baddies.
4. Starhawk (PS3)
This third-person shooter is at its best in multiplayer mode (up to 32). It's like a western in space, in which you do battle on foot and in a range of vehicles.
5. Rayman Origins (3DS)
Origins is set over 60 magical worlds. The aim is to knock off your enemies – without copping it yourself – while trying to find the friendly Electoons.
6. Max Payne 3 (Xbox 360)
Dodge bullets and fight a path through the warring factions of Sao Paulo's criminal underworld in an attempt to find your kidnapped wife.
7. Mass Effect 3 (PC)
It's up to you and your team to stop the Reapers slaughtering everyone in the final chapter of this RPG trilogy. Look out for the extended cut this summer.
8. Journey (PSN)
Players take the role of a robed figure journeying across the desert to a distant mountain. It's wordless, so you have to create your own language.
9. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (Xbox 360)
Here you play the role of a special forces soldier in the elite Ghost Squad with a fancy invisibility cloak. For older players only.
10. Fifa Street (PS3)
Compete everywhere from car parks to roofs to gyms in this Fifa reboot. It's ideal for all ages and a must for those fatigued by standard football games.
