Top 10 Xbox 360 Platformer Games

10. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

This warm and colourful platformer boasts wonderful visuals and sound design, immersing you into its deeply characterful world that rewards a player’s creativity and imagination. With a surprisingly dense vehicle customisation feature, thrilling puzzles and a whole lot of humour and heart, Nuts & Bolts delivers all the charm and playability of the platformers of yesteryear. Endlessly clever and fun, and a love letter to the genre.

9. Pac-Man and The Ghostly Adventures 2

Taking the iconic yellow chomper out of his traditional setting, Pac-Man and The Ghostly Adventures 2 adds imagination and depth to the series in a winning 3D platformer adventure. With solid controls and a remarkable amount of replay value, this vibrant game ranks your performance on each stage leading to hours of “one more go” until you get that elusive gold medal. Great fun and an interesting direction for the beloved character.

8. Rayman Origins

This whimsical 2D platformer features impeccable gameplay and stunning visuals that hark back to the glory days of the character, and indeed platforming in general. This pure and wholesome experience will have players hopelessly addicted to its charm. Featuring simplistic gameplay that is at times deceptively challenging, Rayman Origins is a fun and rewarding gaming experience for fans of the beloved genre.

7. Sonic Unleashed

Thanks to the aptly named Hedgehog Engine, the visually gorgeous Sonic Unleashed splits the action between two different game types – traditional, speedy Sonic gameplay and combat-heavy platform play. The result is a varied and innovative experience that breathes new life into the Sonic series and stands tall as one of the best entries of the modern generation. A fun and interesting take on the platformer that plays like a charm.

6. Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant

As the 15th title in the beloved Crash series, Mind Over Mutant needed to do something fresh. The 3D platformer takes Crash out of his usual level-based gameplay and turns the game into more of a free-roaming adventure affair with missions to complete, characters to meet and collectables to find. The result is one of Crash Bandicoot’s most interesting and innovative adventures, and one that also stands out as one of the best.

5. Epic Mickey: Power of Two

Paying heartfelt tribute to animation history, this charming and passionate adventure of creativity and discovery takes players to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters. Players can dynamically tackle challenges in different ways to explore all possibilities and storylines, encouraging creativity in playstyles. Boasting a superb two-player co-op mode and gorgeous animation, this is one of Disney’s finest gaming moments.

4. Terraria

Much like the global phenomenon Minecraft, Terraria drops the player into a world of crafting and exploration which is procedurally generated, meaning no two environments you start in will be the same. Boasting a stunning retro, pixelated style, Terraria is an addictive platformer that leaves you to mine for materials and craft the perfect arsenal of weapons, armour and defences to take on an army of monsters.

3. Spongebob Hero Pants

This delightful Spongebob title combines platforming, exploration, puzzles and combat in a zany underseas adventure. Each of its six playable characters – Spongebob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr Krabs and Plankton – boast unique superpowers for solving challenges and defeating bosses, with an exciting 4-player co-op mode allowing a great shared experience. If you’ve ever wanted to visit Bikini Bottom, now is your chance!

2. Sonic Generations

Remastering iconic environments from gaming history into beautiful HD, this passionate Sonic adventure revisits, recreates and reimagines the beloved classic game into something fresh, vibrant and endlessly playable! The game combines the old with the new and results in a truly stunning Sonic experience that holds up today as one of the character’s finest hours, and one that will keep players of all ages entertained for hours on end.

1. Rayman Legends

This fabulous platformer is nothing short of beautiful. With gorgeous visuals, wonderful gameplay and endless charm, Rayman Legends is a nostalgic experience that takes players back to the heyday of gaming. Bursting with innovative ideas and secrets hidden in every level, Rayman Legends is one of the finest gaming experiences on the Xbox 360 full stop, and a perfect title for players of all ages to explore and enjoy.
