ZGameWrapUp's Most Anticipated Games of 2010!
Red Steel 2
A revolution for gaming on the Wii
Status: Recently Released
This Ubisoft release is superior to the original concept in every conceivable way. It's easily one of the best looking games of the year, and even with a handful of design quirks and subtle Wii MotionPlus limitations, it's an incredibly fun Wii-exclusive experience.
Fight for the lost
Mass Effect 2 is a better game in near every way. From the very first scene, you will be hooked. And the farther you dive into this epic action role-playing game, the better it gets. It fulfills the promise of its predecessor while continuing to push the boundaries of what we should expect in a video game.
The Definition of Halo
In Halo: Reach, players experience the fateful moments that forged the Halo legend. It's the story of Noble Team, a squad of heroic Spartan soldiers, and their final stand on planet Reach, humanity's last line of defense between the terrifying Covenant and Earth.
Life is like a box of plasmids. You never know what you're gonna' get.
"Nicole Tanner: The first Bioshock was the greatest piece of storytelling I've ever seen in a game. Rapture was a dark, rich, well-developed world, and I can't wait to go back. "
The Power of the Gods
After three years of development and three very long years of waiting, the end is finally upon us. God of War III marks the finale to Kratos' search for revenge and properly caps off a trilogy that ranks near the very top of the best action games ever list.
Hell it's about damn time.
Status: Beta Testing
Designed to be the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game, StarCraft II features the return of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg races, overhauled and re-imagined with Blizzard's signature approach to game balance.
The most beautiful Final Fantasy game yet is an imperfect but still impressive saga that will touch your heart.
A cocky self-proclaimed hero with a charming sneer and a heart of gold. A sultry, no-nonsense ally you can rely on for a sly quip and a warm hug. These characters sound like standard role-playing stereotypes, but to Final Fantasy XIII's credit, they transcend formula and wriggle into your heart.
Ryū ga Gotoku
Status: Released in Japan
Another entry in SEGA's Yakuza franchise, this fourth game in the franchise follows up Yakuza 3 in modern times but is said to feature some very unexpected elements that will divert the series into new territory and gameplay offerings.
