Xbox games are leading the way when it comes to the quality of game play and graphics but which titles out there are the ones that possess the best graphics? Here is our list of top 5 Xbox games that offer the greatest graphics.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III
We start with one of the most successful computer console game series in the history of the Xbox. Call of Duty first entered our homes back in 2003 when it was released using the legendary Quake III Arena game engine. Players were tasked with playing through a number of combat missions set in the time of World War II.
It was originally developed by Gray Matter Interactive and produced by Activision. It has since spawned a number of sequels with the series becoming so popular that it was announced late in 2015 that a live action movie based on the Call of Duty series would be released in 2018.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III transports players to the year 2065 which is approximately 40 years after the events of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. It focuses on futuristic warfare where players can partake in single player missions, co-op tasks, or play online against other players from around the world. It was developed by Treyarch.
Poker has experienced over a decade of increased popularity and it was only a matter of time before its transition to the online platform made an evolutionary step onto the computer console arena. The Xbox has been touted as the most socially interactive console ever created so it makes sense to release one of the most socially interactive games on it.
Developed by independent software firm VooFoo Studios it gives players the chance to navigate their way through six different tables, play their poker in the bustling casino or the VIP penthouse, customise their chips, cards, and table skins, and have the option to either practice offline or play against friends online.
It’s a great way to learn the game without risking any of your actual money. When you’re ready to take the plunge, there’s tons of options online. Here is one guide which explains which poker sites are best and offer the biggest bonuses. Good luck!
The Fallout series was first released back in 1997 but it has evolved in ways that the series could never have expected with the latest instalment having been released in 2015 and causing shock waves throughout the Xbox community for its superb graphics and plot line as well as critics pointing out its “thought-provoking narrative” and “intuitive creation tools” that made it one of the games of the year in 2015.
Fallout 4 was developed by Bethesda Game Studios and is set in the year 2287 in a post-apocalyptic Boston in the United States 210 years after an annihilative nuclear war has destroyed the Earth. Players must take on a character who appears from an underground bunker called Vault 111. The graphics for this game come into their own with players able to switch between a first and third player camera.
Star Wars: Battlefront
Unless you’ve been hidden under a rock for the past 2 years then you will no doubt have been aware that 2015 was the year that the epic cinematic franchise of Star Wars made a return to the big screen with the JJ Abrams-directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not a company to miss a trick, software developer EA Sports decided to synchronise its release of its latest Star Wars game title.
This action shooter game takes players into the world of Star Wars where they can either choose to fight with the Rebellion or side with the dark evil forces of the Empire. It was not only hyped to such an unprecedented level but also given huge preview critical acclaim that it sold 12 million copies in its first 2 months of availability alone.
The fact that players could move around the Star Wars universe and visit all their favourite worlds such as Endor, Jakku, Tatooine, and Sallust but also take control of their favourite characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Darth Vader against the backdrop of such rich graphics made it a hit before it even hit the shops.
The FIFA football series is undoubtedly the most prolific sports console game series that has ever been created. Electronic Arts are once again the brains behind the operation here and once again they have delivered one of the most authentic graphical masterpieces to ever hit the Xbox.
This latest instalment not only includes more leagues than ever with leagues such as the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, and La Liga all licensed but it also had more clubs than ever before. This also allowed EA to motion capture players including Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi to create the most life-like representation of footballers that computer consoles have ever seen.
Such is the realism of FIFA 16 that its critical reception fed back that it was almost too hard to define between a game of FIFA being played on a big screen television and a genuine real life football match that was being shown on the television screen.
