Top 4 best Xbox 360 sports games that are relevant in 2018
Microsoft stopped production of Xbox 360 in 2016 and game developers are tilting their focus towards fresh Xbox One console. Nevertheless, do not worry if you have an old Xbox 360, there are still many relevant sports games to play. This gaming platform had a lifespan of more than 10 years, making it one of the best-selling consoles of all time. We created a list of the best Xbox 360 sport games that are still fun to play.
Our number one pick is FIFA 18, an iconic soccer (or football if you are from Europe) game of the iconic FIFA series. This year’s edition of FIFA can please its fans with refined graphics thanks to Frostbite 3 game engine. Also, Electronic Arts did a great job in terms of gameplay mechanic for crossing, ball control, and dribbling. However, the fly in the ointment for Xbox 360 owners is that the new story-based game mode “The Journey” is not available. Anyway, FIFA 18 will bring you and your friends many hours of football fun. You can check out our full review on this game here.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018
The second game on our list and the biggest rival to FIFA 2018 is Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. This game series produced by Konami also has a long history and its own army of fans. Even though EA Sports got exclusive rights for many football teams and players, Konami has some tricks up its sleeve for its game. PES games were often noted by both players and critics for their satisfying and fluid gameplay. It also won the “Best Sports Game” award in 2017.
UFC Undisputed 3
Well, enough of soccer. Let’s talk about fighting sports games. The great example is the UFC Undisputed 3, a classical mixed martial arts video game made by THQ in 2012. Despite this game is 6 years old, the gameplay and the graphics quality are good. EA Sports bought the rights from THQ making Undisputed 3 the last UFC game in the series that supports an Xbox 360 console.
Our list of sports games will not be full without the NBA 2K18, published by 2K Sports. This game is a must-have for basketball fans and it still supports a good old Xbox 360. You can choose between many different game modes including MyLeague, My Gm, and MyCareer, where you can go through a career of an NBA player. NBA 2K18 has a dazzling graphics and cool soundtrack. There are some controversies about microtransactions and in-game glitches but in general, the game is a solid A.
