10. Turok 2

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is a first-person shooter video game originally released for the Nintendo 64 in late 1998. A port was released for Windows OS shortly afterwards, in 1999. It is the sequel to the successful Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and was followed by the 2000 entry in the series, Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion. It is one of the first Nintendo 64 games to allow use with the RAM Expansion Pak and it was known as Violence Killer: Turok New Generation in Japan. 

A separate game, also titled Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, was released for the Game Boy Color in December 1998. Although set in the same fictional universe, it follows a different storyline. The game was well received, garnering an 89% from the review collator Game Rankings for the Nintendo 64 version and labeled as a “must-buy” from GameSpot. However, the Microsoft Windows and Game Boy Color versions did not score as high when subsequently released. -Wikipedia.org

9. TMNT III: The Manhattan Project

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project is a side-scrolling beat-’em-up released by Konami for the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America in 1992. It is the third video game iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise for the NES. The game features the same play mechanics featured in the previous game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game, but unlike its predecessor, it is an original title for the NES without any preceding arcade version. 

The Japanese version was released in 1991, a few months prior to the North American release, under the title of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Manhattan Project, a number behind its North American release due to the name change of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the NES when it was released for the Japanese market. -Wikipedia.org

8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game

This game was ported to the NES in 1990 under the title Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game, distinguishing it from the previously released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game for the NES. The Family Computer version in Japan retained the original title since the first game was released under a different title in Japan. 

The NES version includes two new levels (the first part of Scene 3 and all of Scene 6), which feature new enemy characters, including two new bosses: Tora (a wolf-like “blizzard beast”) and Shogun (a robotic samurai), both characters created for the game. Most of the original stages from the arcade version were extended as well and the second half of Scene 3, the parking garage stage, replaces the arcade version’s end battle with Bebop and Rocksteady with a battle against the mutated fly form of Baxter Stockman. -Wikipedia.org

7. Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man 2 is the name of several computer and video games based on the Spider-Man universe and particularly the Spider-Man 2 film. It is a follow up to the game Spider-Man: The Movie and was followed by Spider-Man 3 to promote the release of the third film in 2007. These games were published by Activision for different systems in 2004. These games are adaptations of the film Spider-Man 2. 

The PS2, GC and Xbox versions of this game have the feature of allowing the player to free roam around Manhattan, Roosevelt, Ellis, and Liberty Islands. The home console versions were also innovative in that physics-based algorithms simulated Spider-Man’s web swinging in three dimensions, creating a new game mechanic unlike the traditional jumping or flying of previous titles. The other versions of the game feature more linear side-scrolling and platform sections. The PSP version of Spider Man 2 is like playing the Spider Man 1 plot. -Wikipedia.org

1. Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham Asylum is an action-adventure stealth video game based on DC Comics’ Batman for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. It was developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Eidos Interactive in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game were released on August 25, 2009 in North America and August 28, 2009 in Europe, and the PC version was released on September 15, 2009 in North America and on September 18, 2009 in Europe. Arkham Asylum, written by veteran Batman writer Paul Dini, is based on the long-running comic book mythos, as opposed to most other Batman games which are adaptations of the character in other media besides the source material. The Joker, Batman’s arch enemy, has instigated an elaborate plot from within Arkham Asylum where many of Batman’s other villains have been incarcerated. 

Batman investigates and comes to learn that the Joker is trying to create an army of Bane-like creatures to threaten Gotham City, and is forced to put a stop to the Joker’s plans. The game’s main characters are voiced by the actors from the DC Animated Universe, namely Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, and Arleen Sorkin reprising their roles as Batman, the Joker, and Harley Quinn, respectively. The game is played as a third-person perspective action-adventure game with a primary focus on Batman’s combat abilities, his stealth and detective skills, and an arsenal of gadgets that can be used in both combat and exploration. -Wikipedia.org
