Considering the amount of controversy that IO Interactive and Square Enix faced during development, including accusations of being too easy and not using iconic voice actor David Bateson, it is a very welcome surprise to see that Hitman: Absolution returns to its series' roots with this iteration. While the PC game does provide new ways to make the game a little easier for newcomers, it does fully retain its other hardcore aspects to still provide a significant challenge no matter the skill level of the player.

However, Call of Duty: Black Ops II offers the total package this time around thanks to developer Treyarch really stepping up the game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U title.

Set for release on the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and the PC, BioShock Infinite once again puts the franchise back into the hands of Irrational Games.

Borderlands 2 Review: Pandora calls again

They brought back Duke Nukem from the dead and released a successful new franichise in Borderlands built on action, humor and personality—developer Gearbox definitely has many talents up its sleeve, so it’s no surprise that the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC sequel to its original franchise offers all of this and so much more. Though Borderlands provided roughly 100 hours of solid gameplay, players were somewhat let down by the sudden ending and far too many deserts, so Gearbox knew it needed to step up the game with Borderlands 2.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, is one of those rare sequels that seem to come decades after the previous one. In this case, Global Offensive succeeds the hugely popular Counter-Strike: Source released a whopping eight years prior.

Tomb Raider is a title that any veteran player has heard of at some point, due in no small part to the long-running series that started with Eidos Interactive in 1996. Now in the hands of Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, the action-adventure platformer will see a reboot on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC, simply titled Tomb Raider just like the original iteration.
