Guys, mau ngepost - sharing hasil review TELEGRAPH.CO.UK soal game sport terbaik 2009 versi mereka di tahun 2009 (maap ye kalo ada yang salah, maklum newbie) ,..iss: 1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves This PS3 exclusive invites comparisons to the Indiana Jones films and not just because it's everything that Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull should have been. At surface level, the similarities are obvious; the game's story is a tale of high adventure filled with exotic locations and anchored by a charismatic male lead who is as cocky as he is magnetic. But looking further than the content, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is one of the only games ever released whose experience could be described as cinematic. Naughty Dog's genius in Uncharted 2 is that the plot melds seamlessly with the varied gameplay, immersing the player completely in the classic adventure though some of the best video game storytelling the medium has ever seen. Video games may have replaced movies as the highest earning entertainment industry long before its release, but Uncharted 2: Among Thieves blurs the line between big-screen entertainment and gameplay experience like practically no other game before it. Naughty Dog has served up a deuce with its latest release. In Nathan Drake, it's given players the next big name in adventure games for a long time to come and in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, it's provided the best video game for the PS3 to date as well as our pick for the top title of 2009. Come on in, Lara Croft, your time is up. 2. Street Fighter IV How can we convince you that you need Street Fighter IV? We could wax lyrical on how it's the perfect marriage of timeless gameplay with the best that the next-gen consoles have to offer in terms of online innovation. We could talk at length about the game's fantastic graphics, superb soundtrack, and gorgeous visual style that combines old-school character design with a modern, eye-popping sheen. We could tick the box for mass appeal by pointing out that while its controls are easy to get to grips with, players who practice and learn the strengths and weaknesses of every character will transform themselves into a formidable opponent for anyone who dares challenge them. But in the end, the only thing needed to point out that Capcom's newest fighter is an essential addition to the library of any gamer – be they casual or hard-core – is the following statement of truth: "It's Street Fighter IV and it's awesome!" 3. Batman: Arkham Asylum Until the arrival of Batman: Arkham Asylum, the Dark Knight had a pretty poor track record when it came to appearing in video games. This is because in the past developers seemed oblivious to the possibility that there was anything more to Bob Kane's creation than black leather and the ability to beat people up. The reason RockSteady Games' release was one of this year's best video games, is because it turns every facet of Batman's character into a gameplay asset. Yes, the caped crusader is adept at hand-to-hand combat, as evidenced by the game's fluid fighting system in which players are encouraged to string together combos, blocks and takedowns in one satisfying motion. But the game also uses Batman's detective character aspect in its puzzle solving stages (as well as in an ongoing battle of wits with the Riddler) as well as his ability to strike fear into the hearts of his enemies; psyching out the Joker's henchmen by picking them off one by one is hugely entertaining. RockSteady delved even deeper into the man behind the mask to provide one of the game's darker and more rewarding stages. After Batman receives a dose of the Scarecrow's fear gas, his damaged, battered psyche is all visually on display – and these scenes are some of the most disturbing images to feature in video game all year. Topped off with a stunning script, incredible graphics, a hauntingly brilliant score, and some of the best voice-work around, and Batman: Arkham Asylum makes the jump from entertaining to essential in one effortless swoop. 4. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 By the time it landed in retail outlets with all the subtlety of an atom bomb, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 had a tidal wave of hype to live up to. Surprisingly, it didn't disappoint. While, the game's campaign mode received a some flak both from critics (for being too daft and too short) and from the moral brigade (for reasons well documented), fans who bought the game primarily for its peerless multiplayer didn't care. Infinity Ward built on the solid foundations of its last Call Of Duty title, wisely keeping its shooter's core visceral gameplay intact, and then piling on enough extras to keep the faithful glued to their consoles long into the night. It's just a shame the lion's share of media attention focused less on the gaming experience it offered and more on its more questionable content. In all likelihood its developers don't care. The game's sales are through the roof and all the controversy has managed to do is turn Modern Warfare 2 into a household name. Infinity Ward probably wanted their game to reach as many people as possible, in which case, mission accomplished. 5. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars This game may tick a lot of boxes associated with its publisher's usual fare – open-world sandbox environment, dialogue that's both smart and funny, and characters from the wrong side of the law – but make no mistake, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is a revelation. Rockstar's first title for the Nintendo hand-held console is a masterclass in not only hand-held development, but video game design as a whole. Rather than trying to squeeze GTA onto the DS but the developer have crafted the game around it making Chinatown Wars play to the console's uniquely interesting strengths. Being bad has never been so much fun in such a small format. 6. Wii Sports Resort When it comes to universally appealing family orientated fun, 2009 didn't see a stronger release than Wii Sports Resort. The sequel to Nintendo's massively popular Wii Sports is a cornucopia of delightfully charming pursuits; players could take part in swordplay, bowling, golf, basketball, archery, table tennis, cycling, canoeing, jet-skiing, wakeboarding and more. The game also makes fantastic use of Nintendos new Wii Motion Plus peripheral which closely tracks the player's movement providing improved control and accuracy. With Motion Plus in play, the Table Tennis game alone is worth buying Wii Sports Resort for. The game's charming visuals of Wuhu Island and cute soundtrack are just the icing. 7. Assassin's Creed II If one were pressed into reducing Assassin's Creed II to a word, it would have to be 'seductive'. As the game's mesmerising beauty washes over the player, they may find themselves losing hours upon hours of their time to it. Everything about Ubisoft's elegant title seems tailored towards providing an gaming experience that's so immersive, it's almost impossible to pull away. The game's visuals, which recreate an approximation of Renaissance Italy, are stunning. Its tale of revenge engages the player on an emotional as well as a cerebral level. The world created within the game feels alive and organic, and it is filled with so many things to do, players lose themselves in it while exploring every nook and cranny for treasures, clues and collectables. If revenge is a dish best served cold, then Assassin's Creed II is an epic feast of chilled confectionary and all of it tastes wonderful. 8. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story In perhaps the most surprising development of 2009 the best title starring Mario & Luigi saw the plucky plumbers teaming up with their arch nemesis. In an interesting turn of events, Bowser is tricked by Lord Fawful (who's an even nastier character than he is) into eating a poisonous mushroom which sucks Mario and Luigi into his belly. The three of them are forced to work together to overcome Fawful, and this premise sets up one of the strongest titles to drop onto Nintendo's hand-held in ages. Bowser's Inside story mixes RPG elements with challenging puzzles and boasts the classic platform play fans have come to expect in a Mario title. All of it is shot through with Mario's trademark adorable charm; it's near impossible to keep a smile off your face while playing it. 9. Left 4 Dead 2 Although you might not know it, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 wasn't the only shooter released in 2009. It also wasn't the only one that offered a fantastic multiplayer experience. Valve's second game set during the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse took the brilliant co-op and vs modes which provided the bedrock of Left 4 Dead 2's predecessor, and then went widescreen. Players were treated to more content, more weapons, more maps, more missions, more story and most important of all, more zombies. Once again, however, the game's trump card is the AI director. This shadowy presence behind the scenes responds to the players' actions, ensuring that survival tactics have to come into play on the fly and that no two levels will ever be played the same way. Best of all, it forces the players to band together in order to survive which, in the game's truly greatest moments, can instill a sense of camaraderie in gamers who are complete strangers. Until you have been saved from the undead horde by people you have only just met, you haven't experienced the best of what Left 4 Dead 2 has to offer. Oh, and decapitating zombies with a guitar never gets old, either. 10. DJ Hero When reports began popping up announcing that Activision was planning to release a video game called DJ Hero, we immediately checked The Onion. Once we had confirmed the news was actually genuine – that Activision was in fact going to produce a Guitar Hero spin-off packaged with a turntable peripheral – we fell about laughing. Surely this was a joke? Had Activision lost its marbles? This title couldn't be anything but rubbish, we chortled, as we sharpened our critics' pens and eagerly awaited the arrival of 2009's biggest lemon. As it turns out, Activision and developer FreeStyleGames had the last laugh when DJ Hero turned out to be one of the best games of the year. With its slick, solid interface, amazing song list, stunning presentation and addictively fun gameplay, DJ Hero also acts as a gateway into a the genre of music that gave birth to it. It's the best spin-off title from the GH franchise by a country mile and Activision is to be applauded for this uncharacteristically daring release. nb: bagi saya, kecewa berat karena COD: Modernware 2 hanya dapat peringkat 4 hikshiks..
