Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders
Old, but truly monumental
This series has yet to receive the credit it deserves. With four playable stories, and unbelievable armies to do your bidding; this game will be as great as your imagination. Upgrade your weapons, cast magic, evolve your squads or change them back to any class you have the skills for. P.S. Kingdom Under Fire 2 is developed for XBOX 360 and will be available for PS3 and PC hopefully December 2012.
This game I picked up thinking its a piece of junk, but it was a revelation of a BEAUTIFUL game (as powerful as the xbox graphics card can push i believe). The game is a slasher like God of War, and pits you in the midst of a battle (300) with the options to delve deeper and control certain aspects (spies, archers, horse riders etc) and custom attack the battlefields with your own interpretations. Good game if you have a little time, there are barely any save points, and battles can get LONG and tedious, but if you survive through them you'll be fine. Beautiful art, excellent voice acting, and a sexy gameplay style, i recommend this to anyone looking for a good slasher. There is NO multiplayer, which is kind of a downfall for parties, but it's pretty enough to play alone.
