Top 5 Action Adventure Games For Xbox One
The action adventure genre is a fan favorite in video games. From mystical realms to the far reaches of space, these games offer thrilling experiences for players.
Doom transported gamers to a visceral hellscape, and its groundbreaking first-person shooter gameplay remains a game-changer today. The remade version of the Serious Sam series is another must-play for fans of the genre.
The Evil Within 2
The Evil Within 2 is a bold sequel, refining what people loved about the original game and introducing a semi open world with side quests and a whole host of new villains. You play as Sebastian Castellanos, a detective who’s been driven to madness by his work.
The game was developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks. It runs on a modified version of id Tech 5, called STEM Engine, which was designed specifically for this game by the development team.
The gameplay is streamlined from the first game and feels much more comfortable and natural to control. You can use your environment to your advantage and take cover while sneaking around enemies. It also boasts some impressive graphics and a surprisingly interesting story.
Bramble: The Mountain King
Set in a world inspired by dark Nordic fables, Bramble: The Mountain King is an unsettling and unnerving tale of bravery in the face of darkness. Developed by Dimfrost Studio, this action adventure game lets you explore wondrous environments and survive deadly encounters with mythological creatures as you try to rescue your kidnapped sister.
The game’s gripping narrative is helped by its atmospheric setting, with a dark and disturbing atmosphere that will linger in your mind. Its beautiful and dangerous landscapes are complemented by its twisted, mythological creatures, making for an unforgettable experience. Though its set camera and cumbersome movement can irritate players, frequent checkpoints and an excellent art style save this game from true disappointment.
Star Wars: Jedi Survivor
The sequel to 2019’s Star Wars: Fallen Order stars Cal Kestis, a Jedi on the run from the Empire. This time the action takes place on the massive city-planet of Coruscant, and it’s a blockbuster thrill ride from start to finish.
The game improves on its predecessor in many meaningful ways, tightening up combat mechanics, adding variety to lightsaber style, alleviating frustration in platforming and puzzle-solving, and digging into less-mainstream lore to tell an amazing story. It’s also a ton of fun to play.
Even people who aren’t into the swashbuckling side of Star Wars love sliding down cliffs, leaping in the air, force-dashing to get around walls, and slicing up stormtroopers with a laser sword. This is a must-have for fans of action adventure games.
When you think of action adventure games, there are a few franchises that come to mind. The first one that probably comes to mind is the Resident Evil series. This popular game franchise is responsible for catapulting the action-adventure genre into the limelight.
The Prototype series is another great example of an action-adventure game. This series is a third-person action game that takes place in an open world based on modern Manhattan. The game’s enemies include civilians infected with Blacklight and Evolved Hunters, huge creatures that are capable of infecting others.
The player controls the protagonist named Ethan Winters as he explores the Baker family’s plantation to find his wife Mia. Players can rotate the camera view, move in any direction, sidestep to avoid damage and can craft weapons to battle against enemy forces.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Developed by Ubisoft Paris and published by Ubisoft, this game is the 10th installment in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise. It was released in March 2017 and is the first in the series to feature an open world. The story is set in the South American country of Bolivia, which has become a dangerous narco-state run by the Santa Blanca drug cartel.
The Ghost squad is tasked with dismantling the cartel and restoring order. The game offers a huge open world, dynamic weather and day-night cycles, and a complete arsenal of weapons and vehicles. You can play solo or with up to three friends, and discover cartel operations throughout a beautifully recreated Bolivia. Experience a hardcore tactical shooter with state-of-the-art graphics and immersive gameplay.
