Main Games of 2021 According to WEGAME 7.006 January 2022
In 2021, game studios were working at full capacity, so the past year was rich in interesting releases. Despite the fact that many of them were postponed due to the pandemic, we were still able to check out both high-budget and small indie projects.
In the traditional review, WEGAME 7.0 team has prepared a selection of the most sensational game releases of 2021.
Forza Horizon 5
In the recent years, many racing simulators have become similar to each other. But Forza Horizon 5 is a different story altogether.
The game turned out to be a wonderful product with high performance, excellent picture quality and a rich game world. The plot is set in Mexico. The developers have done a great job on the locations. We can get into the desert, jungle and snow-capped mountains.
Forza Horizon 5 has truly become a discovery of the year garnering some of the best reviews from critics. And thus it received three awards at once from The Game Awards 2021 – Best Audio Design, Innovation in Accessibility, and Best Sports/Racing Game.
Resident Evil Village
The game did not get the same positive feedback as its predecessor, Resident Evil 7, but it became a worthy sequel to the franchise. Events take place several years after the previous game.
In the horror, the main character meets four antagonistic demons – Lady Dimitrescu, Karl Heisenberg, Salvatore Moreau and Donna Beneviento. In addition, the eighth part reveals the backstory of the Umbrella corporation, so all fans of the franchise must play the game.
Village is recognized by many gamers as one of the best in the Resident Evil lineup, as well as the coolest horror genre.
It Takes Two
This action adventure won the hearts of many gamers and took the title of Game of the Year, Best Family Game and Best Multiplayer Game according to The Game Awards 2021.
The game cannot be played alone, it only supports the co-op mode. According to the plot, you have to play as a married couple who have become dolls due to magic. Their task is to make peace and turn into people again.
It Takes Two has a vibey atmosphere, so the game will be a great option to play it with a friend or soul mate for an evening or two.
In the continuation of the legendary shooter, the developers left us without a story campaign and limited the maximum number of players simultaneously on the server.
The game takes place at a time when, due to a series of natural disasters, humanity is almost extinct, and water, food and electricity are in short supply. The United States and Russia are fighting for what is left on the planet.
You have to choose one of three modes where you can fight for free territories with other players, join squad battles and get into the game sandbox, where you can customize the rules of battles and use weapons from the previous parts of the series.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy is exactly the case when no one expected anything special from the game, but it turned out very cool.
You are controlling the Star-Lord. Sure, you can't play as a raccoon, but Peter Quill can give orders to the entire team, make key decisions during missions and communicate with Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax, building relationships between the guardians.
The game came out to be a real surprise for Marvel fans, so we can say with confidence that this time the guys from Eidos Montreal did their best.
The action adventure thriller with an exciting lore was announced back in 2019. In September 2021, gamers were finally able to check out the story of Colt Wang and weren’t disappointed.
According to the plot, the main character falls into a time loop. To free himself, he must destroy eight targets, otherwise the story begins again at midnight.
Here you will not see colorful cut-scenes and spectacular videos, but the story is addictive itself. Walk around the island, explore every corner and learn new facts about the strange inhabitants. If you like to experiment in games, conduct the process and every time you think: “What if...”, then Deathloop is exactly what you need.
The new stealth action game from IO Interactive is the eighth in the Hitman universe. Many fans have called the game one of the best parts of the franchise.
In Hitman 3, you can import maps, levels, progress from the previous parts of the trilogy. As before, the point of the game remains the same – eliminate as many targets as possible. But this time, you are given the maximum freedom of choice. Absolutely any means can be used to kill victims.
The only drawback of the game is that you have to play through Hitman (2016) and Hitman 2 (2018) to fully experience the role of the legendary Agent 47.
