After Hellblade 2, Here Are The 10 Highest-Rated Xbox Games Of 2024 So Far

There were a few question marks surrounding Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 ahead of launch and whether Xbox Game Studios was onto a winner, and although we didn't go higher than a 7/10 at Pure Xbox, it's certainly been received well.

In fact, it's now creeped into the top 10 highest-rated Xbox games of 2024 according to Metacritic, albeit only just. Hellblade 2 has an average of 81 for Xbox, which it shares with various other games, but it still takes tenth position - seemingly due to having a larger spread of reviews than those other titles (there are 86 reviews for the Xbox version).

Here are the top 10 highest-rated games for Xbox in 2024 so far:

  1. Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth (92)
  2. Tekken 8 (89)
  3. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown (87)
  4. Botany Manor (87)
  5. Unicorn Overlord (87)
  6. Persona 3 Reload (87)
  7. Dragon's Dogma 2 (86)
  8. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy (83)
  9. WWE 2K24 (83)
  10. Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 (81)

For what it's worth, the other Xbox games with an 81 average in Metacritic's list are Go Mecha Ball, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Remake and Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden. All of those have the same average as Hellblade 2.

Metacritic doesn't tell the full story of course, and we're sure that even when Hellblade 2 drops out of the top ten, it'll be up for at least a few awards at the end of 2024 - if it doesn't win something for visuals and audio, we'll be shocked!
