When Uncharted hero Nathan Drake strode off into the sunset last year, it seemed the great cinematic adventure series was over. But no! Developer Naughty Dog has crafted an exciting and amusing new title around two of Drake’s cohorts – Chloe and Nadine – as they hunt down a holy relic in wartorn India. While the game has a “greatest hits” feel in its use of familiar destructive set pieces, the dynamic between the leads and some new gameplay features ensure that this standalone spin-off truly does stand alone.

9. Nex Machina (Housemarque, PC/PS4)
