Gift Guide – Xbox 360 games

The colours of Christmas are red and green – the red of Rudolph's rosy nose and the green of Xbox games. Here's the best of the bunch

Gears of War 3


Gift Guide – Xbox 360 games - Gears of War 3 2

Marcus and his big-necked buddies are back for the final instalment in the trilogy to save Earth from alien hordes. The graphics in Gears of War 3 are – believe it or not – better than ever, and the storyline is just as good as the previous entries in the series. Give the gift of chainsaw evisceration this Christmas.

Dead Island


Gift Guide – Xbox 360 games - Dead Island 2

Looking to break up the winter gloom with a sun-kissed holiday? How about buying your loved one a virtual island break – with added zombies – on Dead Island?

They’ll be addicted to the huge free-roaming environments and near endless ways of killing zombies before you can say, "Wait, I want that back."

More after the break...

Forza Motorsport 4


Gift Guide – Xbox 360 games - Forza Motorsport 4 2

Remember when Gran Turismo came out and it was great because of the awesome graphics and cool cars? That time before it got really boring? That's where Forza Motorosport 4 is at now – fun, stunning and huge.

It’s like giving a whole garage full of supercars for Christmas, but without the inevitable speeding tickets.

Rise of Nightmares


Gift Guide – Xbox 360 games - Rise of Nightmares 2

Kinect should only be used for killing zombies. Use your body and more importantly your fists to navigate a hellish house full of undead horrors in Rise of Nightmares. Electrified knuckle-dusters and chainsaws make for a messy Kinect-style workout – ideal for shifting that turkey weight while keeping your hand in for the zombie apocalypse.

Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012


Gift Guide – Xbox 360 games - Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 2

Nothing says Christmas like the spare tire that comes with gorging your face on turkey, mince pies and Dundee cake – but that doesn’t mean your mates need to wear stretchy tracksuits all year. Give them Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 for Kinect – it's a fun game and a not-so-subtle hint all rolled into one.
