Dishonored is quickly shaping up to be one of the most interesting games of 2012 fusing stealth, brutal first-person combat and a staggering amount of gameplay choices. And all this is wrapped up in an aesthetically-pleasing Steampunk setting.

Forza Horizon, October 23 (Xbox 360)
If you want great cars and attention to detail without the tedious gameplay, Forza Horizon will scratch that itch. A spin-off from Turn 10's Forza Motorsport series, it is an open world racer that has the potential to take on the best in the arcade genre.

Assassin’s Creed III, October 31
(Xbox 360, PS3)
