Top 10 PC Hack & Slash Games of 2010-2018


Hey! Pia here. We’ve sifted through 66 titles to bring
you a list you might agree with. No ARPGs, this is the Top 10 PC Hack and Slash
Games, arranged by PlayScore. The playscore is an average of gamer and critic
ratings. 10. Attack on Titan 2 Hajime Isayama’s manga turned anime turned
videogame gets a sequel, giving all their *cough*weaboo fans the chance to relive their
Titan-fighting moments. Featuring cel-shaded graphics that look straight
outta comicbook pages, anime lovers will feel right at home. For newcomers to the franchise wondering how
ever you could square off against the colossal humanoids, the answer….is grappling hooks. Become the new recruit and chase down those
muscly beasts spiderman style through the familiar walled cities. As much as it’s improved on many of the first
game’s features, it’s mostly criticized for feeling more like a rehash than a full-blown
title. Still, it has a PlayScore of 7.82 9. Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death This is YOUR new breed of warrior. Probably borne out of a tongue-in-cheek pitch
after a long day in the boardroom, Marlow Briggs might look like a joke but it seems
to hit just the right notes. Excessively over the top and proud, take on
the life of an angry man bestowed with ancient powers and help him restore sweet freedom
to the world. It’s nothing compared to the God of War series,
but controls-wise it’s pretty close. Receiving fair scores at best from most critics,
it’s the gamers that brought it up the ranks. Considering it’s ridiculous fun for cheap.,
it’s fair enough with a PlayScore of 7.94 8. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Now we’re getting serious. As unexpected as this title was for the usually
more stealth-focused Metal Gear franchise, Kojima is nonetheless impressive in his venture
into hack and slash. Set four years after the events of MSG 4:
Guns of the Patriots, play as the cyborg Raiden in her fight against the Desperado Enforcement. Yeah. It’s as tacky as it sounds. But, in the capable hands of Bayonetta and
Nier developer, Platinum Games, Kojima’s vision becomes an acceptable and pretty badass treat. So if you’re like the normal person with a
hard-on for ninja gaiden sword-slashing and don’t mind a few camera glitches, then, chief,
this is it. It has a PlayScore of 7.96 7. Strider Strider might be a familiar name for fans
of the genre, being as it’s a remake of Capcom’s 1989 platformer that became a massive influence
to favorites like Devil May Cry and God of War. Sticking with its sidescrolling platformer
roots, it’s a far cry from the more liberating titles. It’s not any less stylish though. In fact, it’s distinctly futuristic in its
portrayal of the Kazakh metropolis, and combat is just as fluid amd intense. Faithful to its original, critics felt the
game was “too safe” of a reboot but as an admirable effort to bring Strider to the modern
age, it has a PlayScore of 8.1 6. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Before the coming of Devil May Cry 5, we take
a look back to the one of the greatest hack and slash games of all time. This time, Dante has a new friend. Following the events of the first Devil May
Cry, get to know the new character Nero as he protects the city of Fortuna from pandemonium,
one smackdown at a time. For the first time in the series, players
control two major characters: Nero and Dante, each with unique combat elements and storylines. Special Edition adds a buttload of new content
to the game including playable characters like Vergil, Lady, and Trish. Alongside its new content, its polished to
pure HD for that perfect demon smacking fun. It has a PlayScore of 8.25 Found the game for you? You can get them by using the links provided
in our description box. And if your game isn’t on the list, make
sure to leave a comment.2 5. Transformers: Devastation From the team behind Bayonetta. This game delights you with a cacophony of
clanking metal and transforming Alien robots in hack and slash fun. As autobots, your job is to protect the planet
from the ravaging Insecticons and Constructicons, and eliminating the threats for good. With Platinum Games’ golden touch, Devastation’s
hack and slash gameplay flows with ease. Control one of the five iconic characters
from the franchise including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack and Grimlock. Together they do their job to safeguard humanity
with their transforming powers. It plays a lot like Bayonetta–if she were
a towering metal behemoth, instead of the sexy witch that she is. It has a PlayScore of 8.31 4. Darksiders Released on the PC way back in 2010, THQ Nordic’s
action adventure remains as one of the defining titles in the genre. In a series yet to be completed, this first
installment follows the misadventures of War personified. Bringing destructive chaos into the post apocalyptic
Earth, hacking and slashing as the hellish horseman is almost a heavenly delight. The graphics may well be outdated by today’s
standards but it doesn’t make it any less satisfying. Arm yourself with an array of weapons, solve
a few puzzles, and bring down whatever towering creature stands in your way. A stellar first impression, it has a PlayScore
of 8.47 3. DmC: Devil May Cry Hold up, before anyone goes crazy, this was
a pretty decent Devil May Cry game. Ninja Theory’s very own take on CAPCOM’s
iconic demon-slaying series may not be for everyone, but it does prove to be a great
game in terms of its familiar elements. A prequel reboot of some sorts, follow the
origins of Dante and Vergil as they take down the evil Mundus from corrupting the world. Just like the original, engage in its frenzied
hack and slash combat powered by impressive level designs and backed by a mesmerizing
dubstep soundtrack. It receives a PlayScore of 8.71 2. Bayonetta If there’s one video game character that
can comfortably go toe to toe with Dante from Devil May Cry, it’s Bayonetta. SEGA’s badass heroine is lauded for her
sexy personality and absurd fighting skills. Beat your enemies with the whip of her deadly
locks, or shoot them with your majestic guns. Everything is possible when you’re a Hideki
Kamiya character. Just like most hack and slash games, its combat
is fast-paced, button-mashing mayhem. It’s upcoming title, Bayonetta 3, is coming
out very soon and we just can’t wait. It has a PlayScore of 8.84 1. And the best hack and slash game is Dead Cells We might be in trouble, or we might not. As it is, Motion Twins’ indie title is already
a loveable jumble o’ genres. Without adding to it, the game happily complies
with the heart of hack and slash, what with its intense and deliciously satisfying combat. In the hands of Dead Cells, death–usually
the bane of a gamer’s existence–becomes almost a happy incident, letting you retrace steps
and kill monsters with even more gusto. A welcome, albeit unexpected, addition to
the roster, it has a PlayScore of 9.03 Also, you can catch and the whatoplay gang

  1. METAL gear , did not let me pass the dog robot boss so I stepped there and never played it again since 5 years!
    That's go bad , I loved there mechanics in the blade movements!

  2. emm , Raiden is a guy and where is the damn Nier ? 🙁
    no Diablo 3 or Darksiders ? 🙁
    no Nioh or Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ??? :'(

  3. Sadly, all the Transformer games were pulled from Digital Distribution by Activision once its license deal expired (same as the old Marvel superhero games)

  4. Yea neir automata is a masterclass in hack and slash and story telling with depth like crazy and if you haven’t played it I question your ability to make this list and really raiden “JACK” referred to as female is standing out more now, DMC has great gameplay just combine that with old models ad dmc is great

  5. Hey whatoplayers! When the script for this video was written, Neir: Automata's score was lower. The Playscore is dynamic, as the gamers and critics change their ratings for a game, the Playscore of that game will change also. Currently, NieR: Automata's Playscore is 8.09.

  6. Every hack and slash game list is incomplete without God of war
    Bdw nice video 📹 but i think god of war series should be on top

  7. 2 Castlevania games were my fav hack 'n slash games in past 8 years, although i really enjoyed DMC on PC.
    But… NEVER FORGET !!! NEVER…. Legacy of Kain. That's how it all started kids.

  8. One may say its arguing semantics, however, arpg means action role playing games. Any game where you are role playing as a character,(over time and grinding you upgrade your character in your own personal way, ie grinding for money/gems/souls to purchase upgrades/leveling up over time). A lot of narrative driven hack and slash games (DMC/Bayonetta/Ninja Gaiden/GoW/Dark Souls/Darksiders Series etc) could be argued to be action role playing games. Considering many arpgs (diablo/Grim Dawn/ PoE/Torchlight/Drakkensang etc) are also usually tagged as hack and slash. This misconception stemmed from consoles in the early 2000's getting games like DMC and the like their first hack n slash based action games in the third person with cinematic esq camera angles. These people (except for the few that played the original diablo on playstation) were unaware of hack n slash games of the 90's for the PC. Sorry for any jumbled sentences, wake n bake asf.

  9. How freakin Transformers is on the list and those below are not?!?!

    – Devil May Cry 3 SE (best gameplay in the series)
    – Hyper Light Drifter
    – God Of War 3
    – Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
    – Strider

  10. Oh i had no idea these were considered hack and slash, i was more thinking diablo-like, hm guess I'm wrong?

  11. When I saw Bayonetta at #2 I was glad cause I was itching to see what's better than it, but then I saw Dead Cells at #1:-(

  12. What about the Dynasty warriors series or Samurai warriors series excluding 9 though because Dynasty warriors 9 was a train wreak but DW8 was really good.
