Ryse: Son Of Rome
If you can look past the buckets of claret and piles of severed limbs, Ryse: Son of Rome is Crytek doing exactly what it does best - sumptuously realised visuals. Fluid animations and some of the most advanced graphical work this side of Rome combine to create one of the most near-as-dammit photorealistic titles we’ve ever had the pleasure of playing.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Photogrammetry. Not a word many us were familiar with this time last year, but The Astronauts has used this technique to exemplary effect in The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Seldom has a walk through the woods ever looked so lifelike, helped by an eerie sense of outlandishness that made everything feel ill at ease.
