The Saboteur

The Saboteur is an action-adventure open world video game developed by Pandemic Studios. If you are a fan of war games, then you are surely going to have a lot of fun playing this great game.

In this game, you play as Sean Devlin, an Irish racecar mechanic. In the 1940 Saarbrücken Grand Prix, Sean is cheated out of a win by Kurt Dierker, a Nazi colonel. After that race, Sean and his friend Jules Rousseau vow to seek revenge on Dierker. The plan doesn't go in their favor, however, as Jules gets captured and subsequently killed by Dierker. Sean, now with more reason to pursue Dierker, takes on several missions to avenge the murder of his friend and ultimately kill Dierker.

The Saboteur is set in the Nazi-occupied Paris, and you can also explore the French countryside and parts of Germany. It takes place during World War II, and the tragedy of war is blended harmoniously with the game's story line.



Prototype is another action-adventure open world video game developed by Radical Entertainment. The first game of the series was released on June 2009 and its sequel on April 2012.

The game takes place in New York City, where an intensely noxious plague known as Blacklight is fast spreading, turning those infected into frightful monsters that have an uncontrollable will to kill non-infected citizens. You take on the role of Alex Mercer, who wakes up in a morgue and realizes he has no memory of his past. He also learns that he has gained superhuman strength, speed, agility, and the ability to shapeshift and consume others to gain their memories and appearance. You are going to have lots of fun shapeshifting at will. It is even possible to take on the appearance of your enemies, fooling them as you move about with your uncanny disguise. Prototype also features a sandbox-style of gameplay that allows you to roam freely around Manhattan.


Batman: Arkham Asylum

OK, you might be wondering how in the world can Batman remind you of Altair, Ezio or Connor? Well, the protagonists may be a lot different in character, but the gameplay of Batman: Arkham Asylum is eerily similar to that of Assassin's Creed.

The game chronicles the elaborate plot of Batman's long time rival, the Joker, as he tries to seize control of Arkham Asylum. The Joker threatens to destroy Gotham City with hidden bombs, and Batman is forced to take on the dangerous mission of stopping his arch enemy's evil plans. The game is played in the third person perspective and features the combat and stealth abilities of Batman as well as his ever useful gadgets.

Batman: Arkham Asylum has received critical acclaim for its amazing gameplay and impeccable narrative. It is widely considered as the best superhero game ever. A game of the year edition was released in March 2010 and a sequel, Batman: Arkham City was released in November 2011.


InFAMOUS is an action video game developed by Sucker Punch Productions for the PlayStation 3. The game is somewhat a fast-paced version of the Sly Cooper series of stealth games by the same developer.

The game begins with Cole MacGrath, a bike messenger, being instructed by a customer to deliver a mysterious package somewhere in the Historic District. Cole has no idea that the package contains the Ray Sphere, which detonates upon opening. The explosion flattens out six city blocks. Cole manages to survive and learns that he has gained electricity-based powers. He utilizes these powers to trump the groups that have taken over the city.

With seventeen different electrical powers plus various acrobatic stunts, you are surely going to enjoy all the adventures inFAMOUS offers. Use your vast arsenal of abilities to restore peace in Empire City.
