Where? Xbox 360

What’s it about? Follow up to the massively popular original, it's a third-person, 'run and gun' shooter that's been upgraded with new characters, bigger enemies and enormous chainsaws. Story-wise, your task is to save the world. By mass-murdering mutant locusts.

Cool new features? Developers Epic Games are king innovators and here they're touting the ability to use dead or wounded enemies as human shields, making Halo 3's bubble shield laughably shit. There's also an improved multiplayer "communal combat system" to make novice/addict face-offs tidily balanced.

When can I buy it? November 2008
