It's already been a great week for new releases on Xbox! We're only on Wednesday, but we've already awarded an "Outstanding" 10/10 score to the upcoming arrival of Persona 5 Royal, while Tuesday's addition of A Plague Tale: Requiem received an "Excellent" 9/10 from us as well, serving as two of the best games on Xbox Game Pass in ages!
In fact, both have made their way into Metacritic's top ten Xbox games of 2022 list, with Persona 5 Royal seriously threatening to overtake Elden Ring in the number one spot as more reviews roll in over the coming days and weeks.
There are a couple of caveats with this list, but first, let's take a look at what we have:
- Elden Ring (96)
- Persona 5 Royal (95)
- The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe (93)
- Cuphead in the Delicious Last Course (92)
- Rogue Legacy 2 (90)
- Deathloop (89)
- Immortality (88)
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge (87)
- A Plague Tale: Requiem (85)
- Tunic (85)
In regards to the latter two positions, A Plague Tale: Requiem and Tunic aren't the only games to have received an 85 Metascore, so in order to create a top ten, we picked the two games with the largest number of reviews for Xbox. However, we could have also added OlliOlli World, Citizen Sleeper, Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels and Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, so there are plenty of contenders!
We'll return to this list once again at the end of the year to analyse the very best Xbox games of 2022 (according to Metacritic), but in the meantime, do you agree with it so far? Let us know down in the comments below.
