Hitman Absolution proved last time round that you don't have to wade through 20 minutes of hand-holding before you can find a game over screen. Which is good really, as we were starting to worry. So now it's time for one of the biggest games of the year to step up to the fore (and fall on the floor) to see whether its record can be toppled. That's right, it's time to find out... How fast can you die in Call of Duty: Black Ops II?
Be sure to check out our new league table at the end of the video to see who's winning. We'll be adding plenty of games to that over the coming months.
Oh, and just to be clear on the rules, we're timing this from the moment the button is pressed that starts the game proper. So that's after all the faffing about with storage device screens and difficulty selection (we're sticking with 'Normal' for that). We are counting loading screens after that (but skipping where possible) and we're using a retail Xbox 360 Slim 4GB model, so the games are not installed.
