Top 10 Hack & Slash PC Games

August 30, 2019


10. Opening our list of Top 10 Hack and Slash
PC Games is ICEY This Indie side-scrolling hack and slash adventure
was an unexpected hit during its release. It’s a 2D story of a girl named Icey. But it goes waaay deeper than that. The devs stated the game will break the fourth
wall. Thus, calling it a Metagame. While the action is stylish and dazzling,
the game prompts the player to go in a straight path. Moving away from protocol gives the game a
bizarre feeling of “Where are we now?” It’s one of ICEY’s fine points, which
made it an instant hit. Take down Cyborg creatures and get drawn into
its fast-paced combat. But mind the objectives, or not. It receives a PlayScore of 8.20 9. Prince Of Persia: The Two Thrones Alongside CAPCOM’s Devil May Cry series,
this was one of the early hack and slash games that became a reference point for the future
of the genre. After the events of the Warrior Within, follow
the Prince as he continues his journey of preserving time. It’s a darker approach to the series’
story. The most unique feature of the Prince of Persia
series comes from its time-manipulating element. It enables players to slow down, rewind and
basically change the tide of each danger. Stabbing and slicing enemies with your dagger
of time is essential. Aside from that, it’s also a puzzle-platformer
that enables you to solve mechanical puzzles with the use of time. An instant classic that receives a PlayScore
of 8.25. 8. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition CAPCOM’s gift to mankind marks its fourth
return. It’s Devil May Cry at its peak. This Special Edition enables you to play the
series’ femme fatales and Vergil as additional characters! CAPCOM never fails to amaze everyone with
its stylish action, crazy one-liners, and a soundtrack so hardcore. It’s not a Devil May Cry game without sweet
metal music. Adittionally, the game offers a more refined
combat and an additional difficulty setting. Just like the original, two characters are
playable in the game’s main story: Nero and Dante himself. It’s divided into two separate stories that
interweaves in the game’s climax to stop a religious threat. Now, where’s Devil May Cry 5? It receives a PlayScore of 8.28 7. Diablo II The hack and slash game that started it all,
spawning a generation of action RPGs, and most of the games in this list. Before you wax nostalgic and yell at us for
putting it so low, it’s still a game from the year 2000 and it falls behind several
key innovations. But for it’s time, Blizzard’s second Diablo
title is practically flawless in execution, so much so that thousands still play it today. Not only for its multiplayer option, but also
for its equally enjoyable single-player campaign. It improved over the clunky original with
its fluid and friendly combat, awesome bosses, and exciting drops. Don’t even get us started with that secret
cow level? It was so fantastic, it was almost addicting,
and it still holds well today with a PlayScore of 8.36. 6. Darksiders Play as the one of the four Horsemen of the
apocalypse and immerse yourself in a literal post-apocalyptic Earth. Stripped of his powers by the sacred Charred
Council, War has one more chance to find truth in the devastated planet or face his bloody
execution. Caught between an angry choir of angels and
the demonic forces of hell, you must do whatever you can to restore your honor. Mount the fiery Ruin, and carve your reign
of chaos across the vibrant planes of existence. Solve puzzles, wield a unique arsenal of weapons,
and weave through its hellish narrative. Whether or not it’s too easy or too hard,
one thing’s for sure. It’s fun as hell. It has a PlayScore of 8.45. 5. Tales of Berseria The 16th in a series that has lasted over
2 decades. Bandai Namco presents us with a Tales game
that manages to be both fresh and faithful to its long-spanning formula. Instead of Tales’ usual joyful atmosphere,
expect a darker adventure as you embark on a quest for vengeance in the world of Desolation Journey along with Velvet Crowe and her party
of diverse characters, brought together by the struggles in their unforgiving world. Released a year after Zestiria, this prequel
boasts a variety of welcome improvements. Bask in smooth framerates, helpful hotkeys,
and polished combat system. Generic environment and backtracking locations
aside, Berseria provides an emotional experience with its storytelling and lovable characters. It has a PlayScore of 8.51. 4. DmC: Devil May Cry Ninja Theory’s reboot of the series puts Dante
and Vergil on center stage. Explore Dante’s origin story and take part
in his exploits as a Demon hunter coming to terms with his identity. While he’s still more devil than angel, Dante
has a few new tricks up his sleeve. Take Rebellion, Ebony and Ivory up for a spin
in a demon-controlled Limbo City that’s out for Nephilim blood. Work together with Vergil and stop the demon
King Mundus from taking over the world. With his new half-angel moveset, call upon
Osiris and Arbiter to dash across gaps or pull enemies closer. While it’s differs in many ways from the classic
series, it’s still the same hack-and-slash fun, with a PlayScore of 8.54. 3. Grim Dawn It’s not unusual for crowd-funded games to
blow up into historic masterpieces. But Grim Dawn is something else entirely. Despite its limited budget, Crate Entertainment
managed to create a game that delivers old school hack-and-slash action and upgrades
it with rewarding loot and complex character development. Make use of its dual class system that lets
you combine its six classes with a score of different skills and modifiers. Despite its lack of randomized dungeons, the
game scores high on replayability thanks not only to its hybrid class system, but also
to its open world design that doesn’t hold your hand. Step inside this gritty Victorian Era fantasy,
and help rebuild the world. It has a PlayScore of 8.62. 2. Torchlight 2 The award winning action RPG makes a stellar
return, with renewed spunk and attitude. First off, don’t be fooled by this game’s
cartoony exterior. It doesn’t have the dark and gritty world
of Diablo, but people just can’t help but compare the two. If anything, it’s definitely more Diablo
II than III. Dive into its vibrant world, filled with deadly
beasts, rewarding loot, and rich, interactive environment. Although it’s totally welcoming of multiplayer
gameplay, it’s still makes for a great single-player experience with its awesome sidequests and
no requirement for internet connectivity. Play and master its four different classes
with highly customizable skill trees and roam around its randomized lands with their adorable
collection of pets. It has a PlayScore of 8.77 Here are the runners-up before we reveal the
number one: 11. Strider. Combining the past titles, Double Helix and
Capcom resurrects the assassin Strider and sends her on another deadly mission. It has a PlayScore of 8.13. 12. Path of Exile. Walk through the path of exile, and create
your most personal journey with their intricate character customizations. It has a PlayScore of 8.09. 13. Transformers: Devastation. Platinum Games’ injects their trademark over-the-top
action into the epic brawls of the might autobots. It receives a PlayScore of 8.01. 14. Dungeon Siege II. A sequel to an award-winning hack-and-slash,
venture once again to the land of Ehb and face of with a new villain. It has a PlayScore of 8.00
15. Titan Quest. Battle your way through an ancient world brought
to you by the folks at Iron Lore Entertainment. It has a PlayScore of 7.94. 1. And the best Hack and Slash on the PC is Bayonetta For eight years, PC owners did nothing but
drool as Kamiya brings another hack-and-slash masterpiece to consoles. No one expected it. But, like a witch in the night, she swoops
in with her long legs and angel-killing hair, to a backdrop of deafening applause. Widely regarded as one of, if not the best
hack-and-slash game ever, the seductive Bayonetta received high marks on her first release. With this recent port, she proves that witches
age well. Unlike NieR: Automata, Platinum Games gave
this one a masterful stroke with its smooth framerates and 4k resolution support. Fall under her spell, and prepare for some
over-the-top angel massacres with killer locks and loaded guns because this game has a PlayScore
of 8.88.

  1. FUCK OFF EVERY HACK AND SLASH SINCE DIABLO 1, that game had story and adventure, bosses that mattered (altso for the story) progression with the goal of defeating bosses and ultimately diablo, not just to get godlike and boring one shot everything…ARE YOU STUPID GAME MAKERS ?

  2. THESE GAMES ARE NOT "HACK AND SLASH"…. Hack and slash games are Titan Quest, Diablo, Path of Exile, Grim Dawn……

  3. only idiots googling…
    There is hack & slash RPG – DIABLO , TORCH , EXILE , GRIM …etc..
    There is hack & slash games as…this bayonetta..dmc..etc…
    Da fuk….

  4. Top-down RPGs? How the mighty PC has fallen. -_-
    I was expecting games with Bayonetta, Nier and DmC type gameplay. Disappointing.

  5. as far as I know Diablo is a Hack & SLAY game. Also, DMC 3 is still the KING (and DMC4 and the upcoming DMC5)

  6. The last DMC was a disgrace to the series.. Poor story, weak gameplay and most of all: THAT WASN'T DANTE!

  7. This is so bad. I didn’t get the impression that these guys played these games at all because of this PlayScore nonsense that trivializes everything they say because they’re literally summarizing things they haven’t confirmed on their own time. Only Bayonetta and DMC4 are the legit examples.

  8. 10. Icey (0:15)
    9. Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (0:52)
    8. Devil May Cry 4: Special Editon (1:38)
    7. Diablo II (2:24)
    6. Darksiders (3:12)
    5. Tales of Berseria (3:56)
    4. DMC: Devil May Cry (4:45)
    3. Grim Dawn (5:30)
    2. Torchlight 2 (6:13)
    1. Bayonetta (8:05)

    You're welcome!

  9. You know you missed something when your top 10 has tales of high rated, grimm dawn on 3rd place but you even just mentioned Path of Exil

  10. I strongly believe you do not fully understand what hacknslash is.
    Half of games presented are action RPG. Diablo, grim Dawn, T quest.

    Who cares I guess as long as you have your view count target met.

    This is a bad video.

  11. devil may cry, dmc 3 and 4,bayonetta they are real hack and slah game darksider is an open world game POP is rpg your whole list is wrong

  12. Лпропполорпппжлрааполдддлорпапролдждлорпаполдддллорпкдлрпчапрдопавапрлдлопаапролдопчвроллав

  13. Why Bayonetta? Devil May Cry is the best hack n slash game ever.If you do not believe it,try playing DMC on your own……

  14. all of those are total bullshit if you will compare it with the father of the Hack and slash games best of the best

    and that's off course SEVERANCE BLADE OF DARKNESS
