It’s fair to say that the Xperia Tablet S packs a wallop in the visuals department. With its Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and gorgeous screen, it’s the sort of device that people crowd round and coo at. Here are 5 shooters that really show what the tablet can do, and that will likely make any Xperia Tablet S owner the envy of all their friends.
A fast paced science fiction FPS from Gameloft, N.O.V.A. 3 takes its cues from the likes of Halo and Crysis 2. You play Kyle Wardin, a mechanically suited super soldier who needs to rid the galaxy of an evil alien menace using a vast array of super powered futuristic weaponry, and the abilities granted to him by the augmentations in his robotic armour. It’s violent, vast, and features some of the best multiplayer mobile gaming has to offer.
Frightening, gory, and absolutely gorgeous, Dead Trigger is an FPS that throws you into the heart of a zombie apocalypse with little more than a pistol and your wits to keep you company. You’ll be astounded by just how good this game looks, and probably a little disgusted by the pitted, diseased flesh of the zombies who are trying to rip your face off. Fans of Left4Dead will absolutely love dispatching the undead horde.
Violent, terrifying, and every bit as dark as its console brethren, Dead Space is a game to play with all of the lights turned off and a sofa to hide behind if things get too scary. The story runs between Dead Space and Dead Space 2, and brings with it some excruciating looking dismemberment animations. Full of suspense and gorgeous to look at, Dead Space is a shooter for people who want to show the things that go bump in the night who’s boss.
Mass Effect: Infiltrator
A prequel of sorts to Mass Effect 3, Infiltrator sees you taking the role of a Cerberus operative who decides he doesn’t like the way the company is heading and goes rogue. With clever touch screen controls that make diving from cover to cover a piece of cake, Mass Effect: Infiltrator is a brilliant addition to the canon of Bioware’s epic space opera. Take the fight to the Reapers with some exciting third person blasting. To make things even more interesting, your actions in the game can effect the Galactic Readiness rating of your Mass Effect 3 game too.
A modern classic given new life on tablet, Max Payne is a hard boiled tale of a cop on the edge who likes to shoot first, second, third, and fourth, and leave the questioning to someone else. Remastered with touch controls, the game still stands out, and its revolutionary bullet time, slow motion blasting, feels as fresh now as it did when the game first came out. Throw in a noir narrative told in comic book snatches and a handful of memorable set pieces, and you’re left with a must buy.
