Hot Games of 2007 article

Name of the Game: World in Conflict
System: PC
Release: Fall 2007
Publisher: Sierra
Developer: Massive Entertainment
ESRB Rating: Rating Pending
Hotness Factor: 5

Easily one of the greatest RTS games I've ever seen, World in Conflict is a no-holds-barred simulation of what could have happened had the Cold War grown suddenly hot. Staged in 1989, all of the weapons and units are historically accurate in both form and function on the battlefield. Massive Entertainment is truly pushing the envelope of the RTS genre with this latest project.

Massive Entertainment has created a very action-focused game that is equally dedicated to an emotional and engrossing single player campaign, as well as intense and unparalleled multiplayer gameplay. Among the many features is the unique new camera controls. The player now has the ability to rotate the camera 360 degrees around the battlefield as well as zoom in on individual units.

World in Conflict is the game every RTS fan has dreamed of. If you have not yet heard of this game or are not excited for its release, then the time is now to discover the nirvana that is this game.

Hot Games of 2007 article

Name of the Game: Universe at War: Earth Assault
System: PC
Release: Fall 2007
Publisher: Sega
Developer: Petroglyph
ESRB Rating: Rating Pending
Hotness Factor: 3

From the creators of Star Wars: Empire at War, Universe at War: Earth Assault seems to have a good amount of promise. Due for release in fall 2007 and just announced in February of this year, Earth Assault is set in 2012 with the invasion of earth by several alien factions. So far, the only faction we have any information on is the Hierarchy faction. This faction is a powerful alien race that utilizes giant war machines called Walkers that can be transformed into monstrous slow-moving fortresses that also have the ability to produce units. If the Hierarchy faction sets the standard for the rest of the alien races, then the humans have quite a task ahead of them if they are to survive.

As of yet, no videos have been released to give us an idea of the quality of gameplay just yet, but if Empire at War is any indication, I don't think we will be very disappointed with the final result. The screenshots seem to hold a relative amount of promise as long as there are still some improvements left to make on the quality of the graphics, which at the moment seem to be somewhat mediocre. Come this fall, I think that we will have a relatively good quality game from the developers at Petroglyph.
