Top 10 Best Games Reviewed in 2022

We start the new year, as usual, on a positive note. Today, we look back to 2022 to find out what we thought were the best games we’ve played.

Yesterday, we counted down the top 10 worst games we reviewed in 2022. Of course, not all games we played throughout last year were bad. In fact, we got to play some pretty impressive games throughout 2022 as well. So, let’s count down the top 10 best games we’ve reviewed this last year.

10. Road Rash (Sega Genesis)

It’s the game that started this fun, yet short-lived series. It clearly started with a bang, so it’s little wonder why this one ended up being a series in the first place. Bash and crash other rashers as you fight your way to the top spot in every race. Definitely worth the entertainment value.
Score: 80%

9. Road Rash 3: Tour de Force (Sega Genesis)

This third instalment of the series shows that the first Road Rash game wasn’t a one-off. This game features a number of improvements to the original game and keeps up the theme of combat motorcycle racing. A game definitely worth checking out.
Score: 80%

8. Super Off Road (Sega Genesis)

The SNES version of this game is definitely a great game to play. This version, however, is also worth trying. Win races to earn money and use that money to upgrade your truck and buy nitros. The races may be short, but the replay value is definitely worth it.
Score: 80%

7. Hot Wheels Turbo Racing (N64)

Another racing game, only this time, it occupies the world of 3D. The excitement only ends when the game ends. This one adds stunts to the gameplay to earn nitros or points. You can also use items to improve performance or crash other cars while on the race. Either way, a game well worth playing.
Score: 80%

6. Magical Tetris Challenge (N64)

While some Disney based games may not be the worlds greatest games out there, this one certainly did impress. Not only does this game get all the basic Tetris features right, but also expands on them with the “magical” features. The two player mode is enough to keep most players entertained with multiple garbage systems, counterattacks, clearing systems, and an interesting points system. The added storyline thrown into the mix certainly didn’t hurt anything either.
Score: 82%

5. Timesplitters: Future Perfect (Playstation 2)

This game picks up where the last game leaves off. With great story writing, large weapon arsenals, and interesting special effects, this game finds ways to keep players entertained throughout the main campaign. After that, the arcade mode adds plenty of additional hours of entertainment. Add a map maker for players wanting a fully customized experience, and you’ve got a top 5 game.
Score: 82%

4. Sonic & Knuckles (Sega Genesis)

It’s another entry in the legendary Sonic the Hedgehog series for the Sega Genesis system. This game features a number of new levels and even allows players to play as another character. The game lock feature that allows players to add content to previous entries certainly didn’t hurt this games enjoyability either.
Score: 84%

3. Iggy’s Reckin’ Balls (N64)

It’s an oddly named game with a pretty bizarre concept. Race to the top of a multi-floor tower as a wrecking ball to destroy it. While this may sound just plain weird, what you end up getting is a pretty unique racing game packed with features such as items, nitros, special attacking moves, and a whole lot more. The great music and graphics helps make this game be a top 3 game.
Score: 84%

2. Super Off Road (SNES)

Did we say the SNES version is great? Yes. What do you know, here it is. This game does everything the Sega Genesis does right and adds so much more to the gameplay. This version adds bails of hay for variety as well as some great music for that added extra punch to an already great game.
Score: 86%

1. Pilotwings 64 (N64)

Who knew a flight simulator could be so good? Not only is this a fantastic flight simulator game, but it also showed the world that the N64 is coming in with a bang. This game features multiple vehicles, interesting challenges, an amazing soundtrack, and a great introduction to what 3D graphics are capable of for gamers new to the concept of 3D graphics. This game is easily the best game we’ve played all year and definitely worth playing.
Score: 92%

That concludes this years top 10 lists for video games. Join us tomorrow as we explore the best tracks we’ve heard all year.
