The Most Anticipated Games of Winter 2007: World in Conflict, Medal Of Honor: Airborne, Unreal Tournament 3, Crysis, and Assassin's Creed.
The summer didn't exactly bring all of the DirectX 10 sizzle we hoped for, but this winter is looking like things will really begin to heat up for gamers. Benchmark Reviews walks though five of the most anticipated video games ending 2007. We have: World in Conflict, Medal Of Honor: Airborne, Unreal Tournament 3, Crysis, and Assassin's Creed. Feast your eyes on some of the most exciting games to hit the widescreen!
Starting off the rotation is World in Conflict, an excellent Real Time Strategy with both multiplayer online action, and a single player story. Developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Sierra, this action-packed thriller has already undergone both a private closed beta, and recently finished its open public beta. Expect this game in October 2007, but the pre-order has already started.
Medal of Honor has been a long standing name in the First-Person Shooter genre for well over five years now. Medal of Honor: Airborne is yet another great improvement beyond the past successful releases, and should be just as entertaining. Available on PC and nearly every console known to man, Electronic Arts releases this game on September 4, 2007.
Sometime in November 2007 the latest edition to the Midway/Epic Games family shall grace store shelves: Unreal Tournament 3. Based off of the previous two stories, this third edition of the popular first-person shooter offers an all-new engine and some new faces to compliment some familiar ones. Strong single player missions are shadowed by an awesome online multiplayer environment making previous versions ancient history.
What do you get when the creative minds at EA Games join ranks with Crytek? You get Crysis, one of the most anticipated first-person shooters of the year. Extremely realistic model engines and jungle warfare will keep you checking your back every few minutes... but you have until November 16, 2007 to rest up and practice.
Action and adventure have never had it so good. Thanks to some very detailed graphics in the upcoming Assassin's Creed, anyone with a bloodlust will not want to wait until November of 2007 for this EA Games/Ubisoft release to go public. The premise is rather simple; it's the execution that will kill you!
Read on to learn the details surrounding each of these games, and get yourself ready for some very interesting sneak-peeks into the most anticipated games of Winter 2007.
