TOP 10 Xbox One Remasters

10. Saints Row The Third Remastered

With enhanced graphics, improved lighting and reworked environments, the Third Street Saints have never looked so good. Before the franchise became a little too silly, The Third struck the perfect balance with a game that isn’t quite as serious as Grand Theft Auto but isn’t as ridiculous as it later became. With crazy character customisation and an outlandish arsenal of weaponry at your disposal, this one is just bloody good fun.

9. Burnout Paradise: Remastered

Explore Paradise City with fresh eyes in this complete edition of the beloved game which delivers all additional DLC ever released with a range of technical enhancements, offering greater visual fidelity and authenticity than possible when the game was first released. Burnout Paradise is a stunning and endlessly rewarding driving sim that encourages carnage in the way only Burnout knows how. Throw out the driver’s handbook.

8. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2

Relive two incredible entries in the iconic Pro Skater series with this passionate remaster that brings back all the skaters, levels and tricks with stunning new visuals and mechanics. Bringing back the beloved era-defining soundtrack and all the parks we know and love, this nostalgic release is a perfect example of how you do a remaster. A truly wonderful trip down memory lane! 

7. Alan Wake Remastered

Bringing one of the most beloved horror games to a new generation of platforms and players, this definitive remaster of Alan Wake breathes new life into the acclaimed modern classic.

The result is a science-fiction adventure masterpiece that will soon become a huge part of your life as the games shape themselves around your every decision, creating an experience unique to each player.

5. Resident Evil 3

In Resident Evil 2, Mr X kept the creepy factor at 100. Resident Evil 3’s Nemesis is no slouch and will definitely make it hard for you to sleep easy after the first time you encounter this terrifying tyrant. Trailing your every move, this biohazardous behemoth utilises a rocket launcher, flame thrower and numerous grizzly forms to keep you on your toes as you high tail it out of Raccoon City. Alongside more flesh-eating zombies than ever before, this incredible remake hides terror behind every corner.

Go back to the beginning with Dark Souls, the critically acclaimed and genre-defining title that launched the now iconic franchise. Let’s face it, it needs no introduction. Stunningly remastered and including the terrific Artorias of the Abyss DLC, Dark Souls Remastered once again proves that there is nothing quite as stressful - and rewarding - as defeating a boss in Dark Souls. A masterpiece of the genre.
