Hot Games of 2007 article

A good action game means that your adrenaline gets pumping while you play it. It also means that you walk that fine line of being the hero or the villain, searching for the justification of doing the things you do. In 2007, we will have plenty of opportunity to search out our necessary needs for action. Don't believe me? Take a look at at just a few of the mega action titles of 2007.

Name of the Game: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
System/s: PS3
Publisher: Konami
Developer: Konami
Release: September 2007
Number of Players: 1
ESRB Rating: Rating Pending
Hotness Factor: 5

What is there not to be excited about when it comes to the next installment of the Metal Gear franchise? It has been a couple of years since we checked in last with Solid Snake, and things have changed a lot.

For starters, Snake is old - that much we know. The how and the why, we are not as certain. It does appear that the fact he is a clone of Big Boss has something to do with it, but only time will tell. This time around, Snake will once more face his great nemesis - Liquid Ocelot, but he will not be doing it alone. Already confirmed to be returning are Raiden, Meryl, Octocan, Roy Campbell, and Naomi Hunter. How each storyline of these characters will pan out is as much of a mystery as Snake's new Octocamo, which will allow him to hide in plain sight by adapting to his surrounding like an octopus. The Octocamo is just one of several promises of more advanced warfare techniques. The strongest hint, or red herring, that this is the conclusion of a soldier's story, has fans in such a frantic frenzy that some may not make it until September. They may just explode with anticipation.

How things play out for one of the most memorable characters in gaming history is still up in the air. This, however, doesn't relinquish any amount of anxiety over the hype and build up of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Then again, there had not been an action game that has received this much build-up in a long time. That is unless you are talking about the next title.

On par with hype, anticipation, and sheer adoration with Metal Gear, is the Grand Theft Auto games. What groundbreaking year would be complete without the inclusion of an action series that sparked the interest of the world, and put Rockstar in the crosshairs of several political figures?

After much skepticism and lack of information, Rockstar finally came through on March 29th with the world's first look at what can only be called the best looking GTA game ever. For weeks, Rockstar boasted that things would be different, and the dramatic upgrade in graphics was only the first step to proving that statement. You'll control a completely new character named Niko Bellic. He has come to America in search of a change, but we can be certain that the change he is looking for will not be possible. After all, this is a Grand Theft Auto game.

Be sure to check out our full preview to get the latest information on the most anticipated game to involve the criminal element. There, you will find out just how tough this new protagonist is and whether or not the assassination mission will return once more. No matter what level they return at, I am certain that the next title in our action list will fill your need to assassinate adequately.

Originally, Assassin's Creed was set to be a PS3 exclusive. That alone held the attention of gamers and, honestly, was one of the titles that PS3 owners were waiting for to gloat about to the Xbox and PC devout.

When the trailer debuted at E3, it was breathtaking. That one word probably doesn't even begin to describe how mesmerizing the fluid movements of the lead character were. In fact, some would have thought that it was a new installment of the Prince of Persia franchise. However, when it was revealed that it wasn't, anticipation began to grow. That same anticipation has flourished into a frantic frenzy once it was revealed that Ubisoft was bringing the title to the Xbox 360 as well. With Ubisoft's recent track record of amazing gravity defying games, we can be sure that Assassin's Creed will keep us busy until the Prince makes his next-gen debut.

Set in the middle of the Crusades, we will in charge of assassinating the supposed nine people behind the start of the Crusades. With such an important mission already impressing the casual gamer, the only thing missing is the ability to take on hordes of enemies at a time like Dynasty Warriors.

Missing the rapid blood drenching action of God of War already? Fear not. The folks at Ninja Theory have all you will need in Heavenly Sword.

The action of Heavenly Sword is so charged and quick, we may have to pause just to rest our thumbs. With a story about a girl cursed by an ancient sword bent on overthrowing an evil King and his massive army, what's not to get excited about? In case that's not enough, the weapon system should be. Being able to change the ancient Heavenly Sword into various weapons, like a chain whip, offers a remarkable new way to deliver insurmountable amounts of pain to your enemies. Couple that new delivery with gritty action and countless assaulting enemies, and you have the perfect blend between God of War and Dynasty Warriors. Oh, and did I mention you will use a rocket launcher? Ahhh……..good times for all.

With the motion capturing helmed by the man that brought Gollum to life, the movements of the characters, complex storyline, and wicked moves of a high budget Hollywood film, Heavenly Sword will be a, if not the, must have action game this Fall.
