1. Multi-platform: Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Blacklist appeared out of relatively nowhere, and really caused a stir at E3 2012. Although we don't know a great deal about the game, Sam Fisher still stars as the main protagonist and head of the newly formed 'Fourth Echelon', and he's still taking out bad guys in a stylish but efficient manner.
The 'Mark & Execute' feature that was so prominent in Splinter Cell: Conviction returns, but looks much more fluid than previously. In addition, Microsoft Kinect compatibility allows players to distract guards with voice commands.

The E3 2012 press conferences have come and gone, and left a trail of mouth-watering trailers and gameplay snippets for us to drool over...
All the build up to this years Electronics Entertainment Expo was about whether we'd see Sony and Microsoft unveil next-generation software and hardware. Needless to say, we didn't see a PS4, nor did we see an Xbox 720, but both companies came out swinging with a raft of new features and games for their current generation consoles.
With a whole boat-load of great games due for 2012, there's a lot to be excited about for gamers and even though we didn't get to see everything we wanted at E3 this year, there were some real gems, both expected and unexpected. And we're about to take you through the best of them, so sit back and relax.
