Golden Joysticks 2011: Assassin's Creed gets Best Action Game

Was it your choice?

The Golden Joystick 2011 Action Game of the Year has been crowned and the award goes to Ubisoft's hit stealth game, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.


Releasing last year to critical acclaim and huge sales, Brotherhood proved itself to be more than just Assassin's Creed 2.5 by offering a meaty continuation of the story and a brand new multiplayer mode. Read more about the game in our Assassin's Creed Brotherhood review.

Portal 2 was the runner up, with L.A. Noire in third place.

The nominees included LittleBigPlanet 2, Mafia 2, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and indie horror, Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
