The genre jumping games that defied critics

The games that switched categories without skipping a beat - and were all the better for it.

At a time when Activision pummels gamers with a brand new Call Of Duty every single year, it’s easy to forget that not every game franchise is Just Another First Person Shooter - and of those that are, not every one remains a FPS throughout their life. Some developers are happy to throw a few new levels and characters into their sequels, but some of gaming’s greatest series have survived and evolved by changing genre completely to keep things fresh. Here are six of the best. (Culture, PC, PS3, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)
