Top 5 Hack/Slash Games

Clickonline writes "With DMC force-feeding me my own words, God of War: Ascension pouring libation of bloods and Revengeanceabout to sap me of any remaining sanity, this genre is enjoying something of a renaissance.

True, these games never wander far, but it’s been a while since so many high profile publishers ploughed resources into both the hack, and the slash."

Glad to see Heavenly Sword on that list.

Odviously this Genre is OWNED by GodOfWar ...those other games dont even compete

Irishguy951257d ago (Edited 1257d ago )

Yeah..to true hack and slash fans..God of war doesn't compete with them. God of wars combat system is too simple and unchallenging. To people who don't play much Hack and slash...sure God of war will likely appeal to you more than the rest.

Strongman...GTA4 has better reviews and sales than all of your favorite games. So it's better right?

Oh hey...Modern warfare 2 is higher than Bioshock, Lbp2, Cod4, MGS4, ME2 and 3, Uncharted 3, Gow3....I guess...you know. It's better than all those too.

LMAO, maybe you shouldn't play it on Easy. Try Chaos or Titan buddy. And see how far you'll get with button mashing.

GOW is undoubtedly harder than every game on that list (On their highest difficulty). GOW 2 on Titan was freaking HELL to play!

And don't even get me started on story, art style, epic scope, visuals, and pretty much everything else that makes GOW a superior game.

God of War owns on everything but gameplay.

God of War has smooth and solid gameplay, but it's not as evolved as say Bayonetta, DMC, and Ninja Gaiden.

That being said God of War stomps the competition when it comes to Presentation, World and lore, graphics, audio, boss fights, overall cast, story, and probably more.

My top 5:

1. God of War 3
2. DMC 3
3. Bayonetta
4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma / Black
5. Shinobi

Honorable Mention: Onimusha 3, Heavenly Sword, Darksiders 2, Prince of Persia, Golden Axe and a few other old school,

UnSelf1257d ago

Top 5 no order:

Bayonetta
God of war 3
Ninja gaiden 2
Dmc 3
Ninja gaiden black/sigma

In terms of hacking and slashing, god of war comes last. But triumphs In everything else

Heavenly sword does not deserve to on there... 4hours to complete is pretty poor, and the only thing good about it is the story.

This game right here is pretty good. Its an Xbox exclusive came out almost 4 years ago. Its pretty good not GoW quality but a very fun game. http://www.youtube.com/watc...

The biggest flaw of the game was indeed too much QTE. Well done cinematic moments but the heavy use of QTE's broke you apart from the main gameplay.

I was hoping MS contracted Ninja Blade 2 with "From Software" but MS didn't. (Shame on MS)

I remember reading an article a while back that MS wants an "GoW" kind of game. Ninja Blade was a attempt at it. If MS fully backed a sequel this game could be a gem.

EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watc... another vid in case anybody's interested. Hopefully next gen MS could add a hack and Slash to their exclusives.

Heaven sword I wouldnt exactly call a hach n slash. Its more of a hack n slash n crush your manhood. I cross my legs every time i see her do one of her counters or superstyles. Especially the one when she pulls the guy to her then slams the sword right in his crouch.

TheLastGuardian1257d ago

The most extreeeme hack and srash title of them all.

God of War is #1. Check the sales and reviews. God of War sells more than all of those games and scores higher than all those games.

Skips1257d ago (Edited 1257d ago )

While I do agree God Of War is #1 in it's genre.

I don't agree that it selling more and scoring higher makes it so. (But it is still something to consider).

InTheLab1257d ago

No way DMC 3 beats any GoW title...GoW is the genre leader.

Now, where Ninja Gaiden?

NiteX1257d ago

Ninja Gaiden dull? Sure as hell lost me there.

PowerPlayaaa1257d ago

I totally agree with strongman.
God Of war is on a different league of its own.
No hack & slash game can compete with the GOW series.

Chris5581257d ago

I played all dmc true just on hard difficualty not DmD and enjoyed storywise gow 1,2,3 much more especially compared to dmc 2 which is a piece of garbage only and darksiders was too easy for me and 2 somehow uninteresting stopped before finishing
