    2018 is already proving to be a prolific year for the Xbox fans. Here are some of 2018's biggest and best Xbox hits of the year:

    Monster Hunter: World

    The Monster Hunter series has opened up its world and polished its mechanics for monster hunters everywhere. Players engage in role play as they stalk the streets and crannies for the dangerous creatures. You don't need to have played any of the other Monster Hunter games to get the full effects of Monster Hunter: World.

    The game features battles against gigantic monsters in epic locales with realistic animations and compelling graphic imagery. Your job, as the hunter, is to hunt down the monsters through different quests. The monsters reside in variety of habitats so you never know when one will pop up or an even dangerous monster will appear.

    According to the story, once every decade, the elder dragons trek across the sea to reach the New World. This Elder Crossing brings dangerous monsters to the New World so as they battle the menacing creatures The Guild forms a Research Commission to figure out what causes the migration and how to stop it. Your job is to help The Guild as it tries to stop the monster invasion in any way possible.

    Although one might think that this is a simple game, based on the whimsical graphics, it's not easy to play Monster Hunter: World. The game is layered with complex systems so you need to invest time and knowledge to succeed. But the game-play itself is satisfying, with user-friendly control schemes, distinct visual designs and a compelling storyline.

    Yoshi 2018

    One of the most charming Xbox releases involves the ever-popular Mario and his egg-gobbling dino friends. Yoshi 2018 was created in a papercraft style, similar to the way that Yoshi's Woolly World was based on crochet puppets. The game takes Yoshi through layered worlds so as the camera pans the scene you can see what lies behind each of the hand-crafted worlds when you flip the camera around 180 degrees and run left-to-right or right-to-left.

    Shy Guy's stagehands slave away dominate the screen, taking naps, pushing and pulling cardboard boxes with elastic bands, waving innocuous pink flowers in the foreground while hiding in a bush and more. Cute as they are, you'll have to pelt them with eggs – in both the foreground and the background -- to proceed to the next level. If your tossed egg misses one of the Shy Guys as he holds a special red coin you'll send a cardboard cow spiraling into the distance.

    Kingdom Hearts III

    Twelve years and almost a dozen spin-offs after the first Kingdom Hearts game was released the third 'full' Kingdom Hearts game is set for release for consoles. The story picks up with Donald, Goofy and Sora searching for seven "guardians of light" who will help them face down Master Xehanort, the arch- villain of the series.

    Critics see this game as being one of the biggest JRPGs of the year with features that include Disney worlds to explore, new additions based on Big Hero 6, Tangled and Toy Story and a plot that ties together all of the plot threads from the last 10 years.

    This new release includes gameplay elements such as new enemy types, summons, Keyblade transformations, traversal elements such as wall running and jumping, and team-up attacks, which combine Donald, Sora and Goofy into one attack. Reviewers are judging this game favorably for its depth and stunning attention to detail.

    Gods of War

    Gods of War has been rebooted with sweeping, intelligent changes have won over one critic after the other. The developers stayed true to the series while adding a best-feasible play experience and cutting away the excess baggage from the first Gods of War game.

    In this game Norse mythology takes over from the former Greek myths. Norse mythology offers plenty of fresh ideas and characters including Kratos, the God of War who now has his signature axe, a new voice and a son whom he must school in the ways of the Norsemen..

    Gods of War emphasizes Kratos's relationship with his son Atreus. Both are well-defined characters…..the wise but stern father and the naïve yet intelligent son. The pair grow through their shared experiences though the open wound of Atreus’ recently deceased mother is a major part of the storyline.

    Strong voice acting and strong acting make these emotions come to life along with other dramatic twists and spectacles. Together with the snippets of tales and from Norse mythology that are interspersed throughout the game make this gaming event well worth your time.

    Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age

    Any game that has 11 releases in the series must be something worthwhile and Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is no different.

    The setting is the fantasy world of Lotozetasia where The Great Tree of Life, a gigantic tree on a floating island in the middle of the world, was the source of Lotozetasian life. The roleplay involves a young man with a strange birthmark on his left hand. This young man is from the Ishi Village. Now, as he turns 16, he must climb God's Rock, the great mountain where Lotozetasians believe the spirits of the earth dwell.

    The plot thickens when the young man becomes the leader of a mission against forces of darkness who is referred to as the "Lord of Shadows." The young man begins his travels around the world as he seeks to better understand how he can help defeat the "Dark One."

    The adventure takes the protagonist to a jail cell, to a far away kingdom of Heliodor and to on other adventures to meet challenges and save the world from the dark forces of evil.
