Call of Duty: Ghosts is an extraordinary step forward for one of the largest entertainment franchises of all-time. This new chapter in the Call of Duty® franchise features a new dynamic where players are on the side of a crippled nation fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive.

Fueling this all new Call of Duty experience, the franchise’s new next-gen engine delivers stunning levels of immersion and performance, all while maintaining the speed and fluidity of 60 frames-per-second across all platforms.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Single Player Campaign

  • Ten years after a devastating mass event, America’s borders and the balance of global power have changed forever. As what’s left of the nation’s Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as “Ghosts” leads the fight back against a newly emerged, technologically-superior global power.
  • A New Call of Duty Universe: For the first time in franchise history, players will take on the underdog role with Call of Duty: Ghosts; outnumbered and outgunned, players must fight to reclaim a fallen nation in an intensely personal narrative. Gamers will get to know an entirely new cast of characters and visit locales in a changed world unlike anything seen in Call of Duty before.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer

  • In Call of Duty: Ghosts you don’t just create a class, you create a soldier, a first for the franchise. In the new Create-A-Soldier system, players can change the physical appearance of their soldier by choosing the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and for the first time in a Call of Duty game, the player can also choose their gender. With 20,000 possible combinations, this is the most flexible and comprehensive character customization in Call of Duty history.
  • New dynamic maps are the evolution of multiplayer.

Following on from a succession of hugely popular campaigns across numerous formats, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun brings the franchise back to consoles with another engrossing first-person action game. The action is taken to the Pacific Theatre for the first time, plunging the player into the shoes of Marine Corporal Joseph Griffin. Over the course of the game, he has a lot to get through too. There’s Pearl Harbor to survive. His brother to rescue. And the small matter of a number of Japanese soldiers who stand in the way…

In truth, the formula hasn’t moved on much for the franchise, but then it does work spectacularly well. The game’s various missions are varied, and they demand elements of stealth, action and a bit of sabotage along the way. And they’re not afraid to pull the proverbial rug from underneath to keep you on your toes. As ever, the multimedia elements border on spectacular. The musical scores of Medal of Honor games are rarely given the credit they deserve, but their contribution really can’t be understated. The cinematic visuals, however, do tend to hog the headlines, and it’s easy to see why. As you fight to complete a mission with explosions going off all around you there’s little time to notice them.

A couple of mild criticisms, then. There isn’t much scope to deviate from the set path through the game, which is very tightly scripted. Not a bad thing, but not something that will appeal to everyone. Plus it would be nice to see a few more risks taken with the Medal of Honor formula. These mild grumbles aside, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun is simply a very good video game. It’s tense, gripping and desperately addictive. And when you ultimately see the end game sequence, you really will be thirsting for more. –Simon Brew

Syndicate is the re-imagination of a cult classic franchise from 1993 – a unique action shooter set in a not too distant future, where Business is War. 2069. No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by megacorporations known as Syndicates.

These Syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world. No longer does the consumer require a device to access the world’s data and control their technology, they can do this at the blink of an eye via neural chip implant. Civilians flocked to be “chip’d” and enjoy all that their selected Syndicate has to offer; housing, medical, banking, insurance, education, entertainment and jobs. One complete package. One complete lifestyle.

In return, the Syndicates gained unprecedented insights, and control, over the individual and their behaviour. With little governmental oversight, business has become war. The Syndicates will stop at nothing for ultimate market dominance. At the front line of this war are the Agents, the Syndicate’s bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired world including their enemies, their weapons and the environment that surrounds them, making them the most efficient and deadly technological weapons in the world.

Take on the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge. Syndicate takes players into a dark, Machiavellian world run without government oversight with many syndicates vying for total dominance of their local market place. With no one to question their intentions or actions, three mega corporations – Eurocorp, Cayman Global, and Aspari – are at the forefront of this brutal war for control of the pivotal American market.

Last summer, one man revolutionised the current WWE landscape. In a legendary moment at the end of Monday Night Raw, WWE Superstar CM Punk – as the voice of the voiceless – changed everything the world knew about WWE. Through his words and actions, a new leader emerged to set a higher standard, convey a new brand of attitude and ultimately ignite a revolution among the WWE Universe. His mantra? “Best in the world”.

It’s not the first time WWE has seen such rebellion. Nearly 15 years ago, the legendary “Stone Cold” Steve Austin also revolutionized the WWE realm, sparking a new generation of supporters through his relentless, antihero behavior in one of WWE’s most celebrated time periods: the Attitude Era. Why did it happen? In his words, “cause Stone Cold said so”.

Today, a new crusade is on the horizon, and it doesn’t start with an iconic WWE Superstar on television, online or at a live event. WWE ’13 is imminent, and it’s time to Live the Revolution.

THQ’s flagship WWE videogame franchise returns to provide the most authentic, seamless and passionate experience to date – all while turning up the attitude. WWE ’13 will transform WWE gameplay through the introduction of WWE Live, completely changing the way players embrace the videogame’s audio and presentation elements. Predator Technology returns to further implement critical gameplay improvements, while fan favorites in WWE Universe Mode and the franchise’s renowned Creation Suite are poised to offer the utmost in player freedom. Furthermore, WWE ’13 will introduce a groundbreaking, single-player campaign based on the highly influential Attitude Era. Complete with a robust roster – the largest to date in the franchis

God of War: Chains of Olympus

The God of War franchise tells the tragic and violent story of the warrior Kratos and his dealings with the gods. The ancient world would eventually both praise and damn the infamous ‘Ghost of Sparta’ as the mortal who slayed a god, but long before his battle with Ares, Kratos sought absolution from his past sins by pledging himself as a champion to the gods. These brutal crusades in the name of Olympus became legendary, but would have far-reaching consequences. In Chains of Olympus Kratos is pushed to the edge as he is ordered by the gods to journey to the very depths of the underworld after the world plunges into darkness. There he must face the most feared creatures of Greek mythology and is forced to choose between his own personal redemption and saving the ancient world from certain destruction. It is a choice that will shake the immortals from their perches on Mt. Olympus.

All-new Attacking Intelligence infuses players with the most sophisticated artificial intelligence ever achieved. Players have the ability to analyse space, work harder and smarter to break down the defence, and think two plays ahead. Now every touch matters with the most comprehensive and intuitive dribbling system ever developed for the franchise.

Inspired by the world’s best player, Lionel Messi, Complete Dribbling enables players to face their opponent and use precise dribble touches combined with true 360 degree mobility with the ball, so it’s easier to be more creative and dangerous in 1v1 opportunities.

FIFA 13 1st Touch Control transforms the way players control the ball, eliminating near-perfect touch for every player on the pitch, and creating more opportunities for defenders to win back possession.

The second generation of the Player Impact Engine expands physical play from just collisions to off-the-ball battles between players. Defenders can push and pull for position, and utilise their size and strength to force opponents into poor touches and decisions before the ball arrives.

FIFA 13 Tactical Free Kicks provides the tools to create dangerous and unpredictable free kicks. Position up to three players over the ball and utilise dummy runs and more passing options to outwit your opponent.

The latest version of the world’s bestselling PC golf game franchise, Links 2003 is a polished, comprehensive and challenging simulation that holds appeal for all levels of player.

Living up to its claims of photo realistic graphics, it’s a game brimming with options, yet also equipped with a useful if a little drawn out tutorial section. Still, the learning curve is further aided by special aids, which can be turned off as the player gets better, to help with judging the likes of aim and power.

Included are six brand new courses to the Links franchise, along with a comprehensive and genuinely useable course designer. There’s a choice on how you play your strokes too. While the traditional gauge that permeates most golf games is included, a real time swing–whereby the mouse movement controls the club hitting the ball–is a more interesting way to play.

The devil in Links 2003 though is well and truly in the detail. From the nuances of creating your own golfer through to the visualisation of the courses, it’s clear that little expense has been spared. That the game also comes with a challenging and long lasting single-player mode in addition to time-guzzling online multiplayer options is but a further compelling reason to buy the game. For if you’re a golf game fan, nothing on any format does this better. And heck, even if you’re not and you like your sports simulations, it really is worth finding out what all the fuss is about. —Simon Brew

Making incremental improvements over last year’s strong version, Madden 2002 is shaping up to be more evolutionary than revolutionary. Graphics receive a minor facelift. Player faces are more detailed, while their bodies are properly proportioned–last year’s players appeared too stocky. Hundreds of new player animations allow movement to appear far more fluid and natural. While we didn’t get to go through the entire playbook of every team, last year’s cheap “money” plays are no longer unstoppable. Although the PlayStation2 version was the furthest in development, the GameCube beta sported the nicest graphics.

Players can practice late-game offense and defense in two-minute drill mode. Create-a-team allows players to start a new franchise, selecting helmets, uniforms, logos, stadiums and players. Training mode consists of John Madden coaching gamers on the various plays, helping them understand what each X and O in the playbook does. The new Houston Texans franchise is included and the game supports widescreen televisions, allowing players to see more of the field. –Raymond M Padilla
