Here is what we think are the Top 10 games to watchout for this E3!
(In no specific order)
Modern Warfare 2(PS3, XBOX 360, PC):
Modern Warfare 2 is a Modern First-Person Shooter game, developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision, scheduled to be released in 2009. Its a sequel to multi-million selling and multi-award winning Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and promises to raise the bar even more this time around. Keep a close eye on this one.
Assassin’s Creed 2(PS3, XBOX 360, PC):
Assassin’s Creed 2 is a Historic Action Adventure game, developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft, scheduled to be released in 2009. First Assassin’s Creed created much hype but failed to live up in certain areas but this time around Ubisoft Montreal is hard at workmaking sure its sequel doesn’t have the flaws of its predecessor. Look out for this beauty at E3.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves(PS3):
Nathan Drake returns for some more tomb raiding in the sequel to Naughty Dog and Sony’s 2007 archeological action-adventure hit. UC2 promises to have one of the best if not the best graphics on current console, but it doesn’t mean it wont offer the same quality of action and platforming as you expect from Naughty Dog. This one is high on our list.
Mass Effect 2(XBOX 360, PC):
Mass Effect 2 is an Action Role-Playing game, developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts, scheduled to be released in 2009. Firast Mass Effect was a huge success both commercially and critically and it took the interactivity level in games to new heights along with some amazing role-playing but its flaws cannot be forgotten. Bioware must know that and must be putting great energies in resolving them for the sequel. Its the game to watchout out for at E3.
Metal Gear Solid 5(PS3):
E3 wont be E3 without an announcement metal gear related. This is our wildest of the guesses but sure we’ll see the announcement this E3. And if MGS4 is anything to by than MGS5 surely will blow us away again. Here is keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for a tease into the world of mgs early this summer.
