WINNER: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has a fantastic story; different to previous games in the series. It takes a different outlook, focusing on pirates, and this pays off by creating something enjoyable and fresh. The graphics on the PS4 version are phenomenal, and the sound is just as high quality. It is, in my opinion, the best of all Xbox One launch titles!

RUNNER-UP: Forza Motorsport 5
Forza 5 is one of the most beautiful games on the Xbox One. The lighting and car design is phenomenal, and the developers really worked hard to create a game so close to photo-realistic. The new features introduced are excellent, as are the mechanics. This is on-par with Black Flag, however, the racing genre is less accessible, so, we decided to relegate Forza 5 to a very close second.

We would also like to make special mention to LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes and NFS: Rivals all of which are also excellent launch titles for the system.
