The fast pace Action-Adventure genre saw a lot of love this year, hacking and slashing its way through hordes of baddies while keeping a high combo rank. From action platformers like Bayonetta 2 and Castlevania, to the more slow and punishing like Dark Souls 2 and Shadows of Mordor. Here was our pick for best Action Adventure game.

MIDDLE EARTH: SHADOWS OF MORDOR – MONOLITH/WB GAMES

HYRULE WARRIORS – KOEI TECMO/NINTENDO

BAYONETTA 2 – PLATINUM GAMES/NINTENDO

CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOWS 2 – MERCURYSTEAM/KONAMI

DARK SOULS 2 – FROM SOFTWARE/BANDAI NAMCO

Bayonetta surprised us when it was announced as a Wii U exclusive, now we can’t imagine it on any other platform. It’s fast pace, over the top and most of all, fun. Bayonetta 2 is the action game you need on the Wii U.
