Multiplayer games - common screen XBOX 360

In shared-screen, players don't connect to a network - local or online - because the game takes place on a single console or computer. Two or more players play at the same time, but the screen isn't split - all of the characters (or vehicles, or whatever) controlled by the players are visible in the game window. This form of multiplayer is most common in brawlers, platformers (such as the LEGO series), sports simulators, and isometric co-op action games.

Fable II

RPG 21 October 2008

A full-fledged continuation of a third-person action RPG by Peter Molyneux, originally released in 2004 on Microsoft consoles.

Released exclusively for Xbox 360, it is an action game belonging to the popular Naruto franchise.

In order to become Hokage, that is, the leader of the whole community, Naruto will have to face numerous demons and other dangerous enemies. The player explores the game world and talks to other characters in search of missions requiring them mostly to take part in spectacular battles, during which special powers typical for the series are used.

FIFA 18

Sports 29 September 2017

The game is another installment in the FIFA series. Electronic Arts introduced a lot of important changes in this follow-up, which will probably constitute a real treat for all the fans of virtual soccer. What is especially noticeable, is the introduction of the Real Players Motion technology that governs the appearances, animations and behavior of the in-game footballers. Although this technology encompasses mainly top players, the less-known footballers also behave in a more realistic manner, as the new system takes different factors into account, such as a footballer's height. The game brings a continuation to a story campaign from FIFA 17, embodied here by The Journey: Hunter Returns. FIFA 18 also brings a remodeled system of transfers in the career. The player is now capable of negotiating with clubs and particular footballers on their own. The FIFA Ultimate Team mode brings the Icon cards, representing legendary footballers. All of this is complemented by the use of the Frostbite engine, which mainly powers the cut-scenes displayed both in The Journey mode and the regular career component.

The ones standing out are remodeled players, accurately imitating profiles and faces of their real-life counterparts.

In terms of gameplay the title does not stray far from the studio’s previous productions. As always, the key element of gameplay is making tough choices that influence the way the story unfolds – and not just within one chapter but across the entire season.
