Best video games to gift this Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving, receiving, spending time together but it also offers loads of time for gaming. The best video games to give and receive are reviewed below.

Star Wars Battlefront

For many cinema goers Star Wars is the ultimate movie to see at Christmas time and it’s the same for gamers thanks to Star Wars Battlefront. What’s better than battling the Empire in EA Dice’s latest instalment? This one takes players back to the landscapes created in the original trilogy series but it’s a must for Star Wars fans new and old.

Fallout 4

Fans of the Fallout series will love the latest game in the long running series. Reviewers say that this post-apocalyptic role playing game offers better gameplay than any other game in the series.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

We’ve lost count of the amount of quality Call of Duty games that have been released but whatever the number, the latest one – Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is another highly addictive instalment in the series. This one’s set in 2065 and sees you take control of an augmented soldier with superpowers. As with previous games, this one’s all about multiplayer action but the single player mode’s been improved. You don’t need to follow the chapters in a linear path which adds loads of additional appeal to the game.

Halo 5

This one’s from another long running franchise but in gaming the long running series get better and better. We’ve expecting this one to be the best-selling Xbox One game of the year thanks in part to its emphasis on co-operative play which is available in both the story mode and the multiplayer campaigns.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman: Arkham Knight is the other game we’d recommend you playing over the festive period. This final chapter from developer Rocksteady is massive as you can explore the whole of Gotham City without limits. There’s even a Batmobile to help you get around.
