Top 10 Ubisoft Games


Its time to honor one of the biggest and one of our favorite developers, Welcome to Watchmojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Ubisoft games.

For this list, we’re restricting the titles to one game per franchise, The Tom Clancy name is exempt from this rule but the various franchises that spawned under said name are not. Also the game has to have been developed and published by a Ubisoft studio.

#10: “Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game” (2010)


Kicking off our list is one of the few examples of a movie tie-in game done right, with nicely polished 2D animation not only drawing plenty of fan service from the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and classic videogames alike. Top it all of with the epic chiptunes soundtrack from Anamanaguchi and you have a memorable old school 2D Beat-em-up that retro gamers will fall in lesbians with.

#9: “Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter” (2006)


There were a lot of tough choices for this list, the first being between this game and Future Solider, although ultimately Advanced Warfighter won out. While the graphics may look dated by today’s standards, its still a lot of fun to play as it gave players a groundbreaking array advanced weaponry to play with, spicing up a genre that’s long past stale.

#8: “Rainbow 6: Vegas” (2008)


This choice however was a no-brainer. Set in the bright lights of Las Vegas, this cover based First Person / 3rd Person hybrid shooter made methodical squad based combat surprisingly intense. Taking place in recreations of real life Las Vegas casinos, there’s nothing more thrilling than having a rogue grenade blow up a slot machine and hearing all that loose change spill everywhere.

#7: “Driver: San Francisco” (2007)


Driver is probably one of the more unique games on the list. The game’s core gameplay mechanic revolves around projecting your mind into another driver on the road and plowing them into oncoming traffic because you were controlling them. Can you imagine trying to explain that to your Insurance Agency? Thankfully its not all real, the guy was in a coma this whole time, but hey still fun.

#6: “Beyond Good & Evil” (2004)


A game that became a cult classic, this lively tale has you in the role of Jade, who’s often regarded as one of the best female protagonists in gaming, who’s helped along the way by her adopted uncle who’s an anthropomorphic pig. The gameplay itself blends 3D stealth platforming along with a combat system that Ubisoft would later adopt in their Assassin’s Creed series. If you haven’t played this game before, it recently got a HD rerelease on Xbox Live and Playstation Network, so check it out.

#5: “Splinter’s Cell: Chaos Theory” (2005)


Another Tom Clansy title, another difficult choice, as each of the Splinter’s Cell games are really well made, In the end though, we gave the nod to Chaos Theory as it perfected the now signature cooperative Multiplayer. As Stealth Game with a heavy emphasis lighting, or lack there of, it allowed for some rather intense moments as you skulked in the shadows waiting for the right moment to drive your knife into a wandering guard.

#4: “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” (2003)


A reboot to a classic game that surpassed the quality of the original, Sands of time featured an extremely nimble free running acrobatic system, making for a fantastic 3D platformer. Making it even better was the ability to reverse time in the event you don’t get a jump quite right. Top it off was the fantastic art direction, making this an Arabian adventure not soon forgotten.

#3: “Rayman Legends” (2013)


While the original 3D Rayman games were memorable, the 2D platform Origin’s series was the limbless hero’s finest work. We’re giving the nod to Legends since it also contained the levels from Origins and for being a straight-up-amazing platformer, one that gave Mario a run for his coins. For even more enjoyment there was the Co-Op play with the Wii U gamepad for an experience unlike anything else.

#2: “Far Cry 3” (2012)


No contest for this one, The 3rd entry is by far the best in the series, for successfully combining it’s ambitious scale with a memorable setting and interesting characters. This open world FPS set on a tropical island is just brimming with things to do. Hunting wildlife, flying around on a hangglider, Ramboing though legions of pirates or even torching enormous crops of marijuana, you’ll never run out of things to do. Also need to give an honorable mention to its neon soaked DLC expansion Blood Dragon.

Speaking of honorable mentions, lets quickly take a look at some more before we get to Number 1

Rabbids TV Party

#1: “Assassin’s Creed 2” (2009)


Pretty sure most of you saw this series coming. The only real question was which game. We juggled back and forth between this game and Black Flag. But ultimately we went with 2 for the fact that it established Assassin’s Creed as Ubisoft’s signature franchise. With a fantastic open world based around the classic Italian Renaissance cities such as Florence, Rome and Venice.\, this is the game that gave birth to an annual tradition.
