The new era of video games has focused more on online multiplayer game modes. The genres of battle royale, FPS, and MMORPG, which is a multiplayer game with a large pool of players in it, have become common. However, the old school singleplayer storyline games have not become a thing of past. In fact, they have become better, exciting and more intricate than ever before.
The feel of playing an action game with a solid storyline and a thrilling climax is something single-player gamers thrive on. Even open-world games like GTA Vice City and Mafia II were legendary.
On the other hand, Action-Adventure games like Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and the Devil May Cry series were fun playing and brilliant for killing time on the boring weekends. Here are the top five games which will help you revive the love for delightful action and adventure.
Devil May Cry 5
Released on March 2019, Devil May Cry has been one of the best action-adventure games. The graphics, special effects, and design of this game will surprise you for sure. The fighting sequences are just mind-blowing, heart-throbbing but challenging at the same time.
The best part about the game is its fighting combos; even if you press some random buttons in panic it sometimes fires a deadly long combo which will shock you. The combos are awesome to watch as they are highly in-depth and upgrade-able.
Even the characters of the game have a well-assigned role to play and though the story sometimes feels hurried it is fun to play and unveil the next chapter. There are secret missions which come along the way which give really good rewards in the game. These missions are hard to find but are fun to complete. Developer Capcom has done a brilliant job and has a shining future with this part.
The amazing series of Lara Croft’s adventure trilogy comes to an end with this part as its final piece. The story has got some critics about being fast and poorly narrated, and it is if you nitpick. However, the game is very praiseworthy for the most part. The previous part of the game was a huge success and this one comes very close, if not equal to it.
Firstly, the gameplay of this title is outstanding. The world around you is just waiting to be explored and there are so many interactions you can do. The shooting and stealth mechanics of the game are also supreme and possibly even better than the last part.
The role of Lara who is the protagonist of the game is strong and well done. The weapons most commonly used are a bow, pistol, rifle, and shotgun. The weapons are upgradable as you proceed in the game. Lara can hide in bushes, mud and on top of trees and can orchestrate attacks without using a single bullet and that is how stealth works in the game.
