Today is a happening day in the world of console gaming as there are three big game releases for all you gamers out there.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Choose from multiple authentic character classes, each with their own signature weapons and killing moves. With richly-detailed maps and a wide variety of unique multiplayer modes, you’ll never fight the same way twice. As Ezio, a legendary Master Assassin, experience over 15 hours of single player gameplay set in the living, breathing, unpredictable city of Rome. Recruit and train promising young Assassins. Deploy them across the city as you see fit, or call upon them to aid you in your quests. Collaborate with real historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza. Swiftly eliminate your enemies using tools such as poison darts, parachutes, double hidden blades, hidden guns, and an advanced flying machine at your disposal.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit – Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit contains 1-8 player online support as well as leaderboards. Play as either cops and racers in both a tremendously deep, fully-defined single player career and a groundbreaking multiplayer experience across all race modes. The Need For Speed Autolog system connects friends directly to each other’s games, enabling them to compare and share all their experiences and challenges. Whether taking down suspects with a variety of cop weapons or using evasion equipment to outsmart the cops, players will always have a method for gaining an edge over their opponent. Feel the power of busting suspects in supercharged cop interceptors like the Lamborghini Reventon or outsmarting the law as a racer in high performance supercars like the Pagani Zonda Cinque.
Apache Air Assault – Authentic Warzones: With more than 16 multi-stage missions involving air and ground strike operations, the campaign takes you to real life locations including Central America and the Middle East. Apache has you where the fight is needed the most. Realism Defined: Everything is the game is painstakingly made with realism in mind, from the real-world satellite photography used to make the in-game environments to the simulation controls and modeling of the helicoptors. Tailored Experience: Play the way you want to play. Jump right in and rain down destruction in the game’s arcade-style Training Mode or test your aerial skills by playing in the challenging Realistic Mode. Cooperative Destruction: Have a friend join the fight! The local cooperative mode lets two players gear up in the same Apache and tackle the game’s story mode with one player acting as the pilot and the other as the gunner. Online Helicopter Combat: Join other helicopter enthusiasts as you go directly against them in competitive online modes such as Team Battle and Capture the LZ, or form online squadrons with up to four Apaches fighting together in unison.

I have not played Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood or Apache Air Assault yet but I have already been in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit and have a couple of notes for you.
- The graphics in NFS: Hot Pursuit are gorgeous on my Xbox 360. They make NFS: Most Wanted look like a Wii game
- The flipside of the game box cover insert is a map of Seacrest County which is the locale the game takes place in. Pretty handy reference while in the game racing.
- If you played the demo you will get credited your 500 bounty points from playing the demo once you get signed in and your career setup.
- An added bonus is the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Loyalty Rewards:
