It's a crime that Halo 4 doesn't have the top spot!

No surprise at all, happy to see Hitman in there, and Far Fry 3, Assassins Creed 3 was mostly OK, especially during Haythams part, but it got a bit boring after that and the AI was shockingly bad.

Halo 4 is dying my friend a painful and slow death, numbers have gone right down since release, they have cocked up pretty bad with PR and lack of content, then the maps scandal which has also alienated the community:

Hitman has crept in as it has been discounted, so has a lot of the main christmas titles, there are some real bargains this christmas, quite unusual, maybe the retailers are clearing the decks for next year's new console releases???

It's doing ok, considering it's a 1 console game,

I made the mistake of playing halo 4 and then going to far cry 3, halo wee wees all over that game in regards to graphics and frame rate, and although i haven't checked i remember far cry 2 looking and running a lot better than 3.

On a different note, i picked up medal of honor recently, nice and cheap, and have to say i'm really enjoying it, can't understand what all the negative feedback was all about.

Single player is nothing new but also no worse than the recent cod's, multiplayer is very solid, and most kills are with you're rifle and not by a myriad of ridiculous perks, plus i feel the buddy system helps build teamwork, if you were sat on the fence with this one, give it a go you might be pleasantly surprised.

In fact it's the only console exclusive on that list. Halo's doing just fine.

I'm actualy enjoying Black Ops 2. The way the campaign has branch-off points is pretty good. Strike Force isn't that good though. The rubbish AI means it is near impossible to carry out the mission via the strategic viewer and I always found myself just taking control of a soldier.

Multiplayer isn't the best though IMO. Yes, the fact that it's harder for players to spam kill streaks every 2 seconds is good but the amount of overpowered shotgun weilders and snipers really does spoil your experience. Hell most snipers i''ve came across aren't even camping out, just running around getting ridiculous one hit kills.
