With the recent release of the Xbox One, gamers will be searching for the latest and newest Xbox games to play. But with a wide variety of games in the market, it comes down ultimately to the type of game you like. Some people love sports and others would prefer mission games and adventure or racing.
Most sports have corresponding games, from the most popular FIFA 15 for soccer, Madden NFL 15 for football, WWE 2K15 for wrestling, Rugby 15 for rugby, NBA 2K15 for basketball to even weird ones like PGA tour set to be released this year and NHL 15 for ice hockey. The list is endless. In the sports arena, FIFA 15, I find is still the best in graphics quality with realistic player faces and expressions.
For racers, Need for Speed Rivals is the latest addition to the series. The game has improved graphics compared to the previous Most Wanted (2012) which was a remake of the 2005 version. With addition of the latest model supercars, NFS still remains top in racing games. Moto GP 14, F1 2014; all these don’t have anything over NFS.
Newest Xbox games seem to concentrating more on adventure, it’s a bit of a tight race with different games offering a different set of pros and cons. But in the battle of the titans, Call of Duty has excellent graphics with very realistic qualities but it does not have as much gore and action as compared to Battlefield, it really is just a matter of preference of the user. Although it seems there’s going to be huge competition this year, with newer titles like Destiny, Middle Earth, Watchdogs and the new Assassin’s Creed.
The most significant release recently I believe is Grand Theft Auto V, which has been a huge success. It has included even more realistic graphics and an even wider environment where you can do almost everything; from trading stocks to scuba diving, among other weird activities I like to do in the game that may not be appropriate to mention.
There has also been a recent upsurge of television and movie spin-offs like Resident Evil, The Walking Dead, Transformers, Spiderman, and many others although I’ve never found those captivating. They are obviously from a hugely successful title and the game never lives up to the original.
All in all, among the newest Xbox games, it is clear developers are concentrating more on improving their quality of games in terms of graphics and older Xbox models might not be able to handle the heavier applications.
