  • Summer games, what and why/why not you getting?

    OK, a little feedback discussion here on a few upcoming games for the summer... was wondering what you guys might be getting, and why or why not...any I missed?

    Baja: Edge of Control
    Sept. 8th

    I was looking forward to this, but the more i read and see, it is becoming clear that it is another arcade racer, so probably not for me.

    Bad Company
    June 23rd

    The demo was OK, but not great. Pre-reviews say it's the best damn looking and sounding game so far. But gameplay is questionable, and just 1 MP mode (ya, I know they promised to release conquest, but promises don't mean squat from a publisher/developer). I already have it pre-ordered, but have been thinking about NOT getting it, but in the end I will probably cave in and get it, play it for a month then done.

    Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
    Aug 26th

    Never played the first one, hearing good things about this, but I am so tired of WW2. It's coming for PC and 360, and if I would decide to get it, then I don't know which version to get. SP will be a one time thing, MP will die with the next game. I'm torn-ed, but unless high reviews all around, think I will pass.

    Madden 09
    Aug 12th

    Ya I know, not really my category of play, but I love football and usually buy every years version only to play about 12 games. I was actually going to pass on ALL EA Sport titles this year and wait for 2010 versions, but with this being the 20th anniversary of the madden series, (and me almost owning every years wither on the sega Genesis, PC, or Xbox, then 360. Alot of extras and good stuff coming to this version, think I will get it. Go BUCS!

    Mercenary 2: Flames of War:
    Aug 31st

    Never played the first one, looks cool and great, but way to much on my plate to bother with this title. Hell I did all this with Conflict Denied Ops and Army of Two.

    Civilization Revolution
    July 8th

    Been a big fan of the PC version. Tried the demo for the Xbox 360 and thought it was going to SUCK, but I was wrong...gameplay is nice and spot on, visuals are a little to cartoony, but hey I can live with that, with this game it's all about the game play.

    Star Wars: Force Unleashed
    Sept. 16th

    Looks great, SP only I believe, not my cup of tea, I'll pass but will watch the reviews closely.

    Tom Clancy's HAWX
    Sept. 16th

    Don't let the Tom Clancy fool you. I will watch this title closely, and read every review, but I have a feeling it will be an arcade crapolla, but I hope I'm wrong... Arcade= no go for me, semi-sim then sure, why not.

    Too Human
    Aug 19th

    Don't know much about this game, never planned on getting it, but after watching some videos and it being similar to games like Mass Effect, will be watching, unknown for sure at this time.

    Unreal Tournament 3

    July 7th

    Hell I couldn't move fast enough not to get killed every 5 seconds in the PC demo, no thanks for me.

    World in Conflict: Soviet Invasion
    Sept. 2nd

    I got this for PC, will WiC, and will probably get the PC version of the expansion. BUT love the game, hope theres a demo, because if the feeling is right with the 360 controller, then hell ya, WiC on a 50 inch 1080p HD TV with 7.1 800 plus watt surround sound...SWEET... but it all depends on how it feels,RTS's on the 360 have not been to good IMO.

    Just Cause 2
    unk

    No thx, didn't like 1

    Tiger Woods Golf 09
    unk

    Alot of improvements from the 08 series, so IF I have the time and money then sure, otherwise 08 is just fine for my occasional HD golf game.


    So, whats your feedback and opinions?

    What about UT3 for the XBOX 360?

    I will probably try Bad Company if enough people on my friends list are playing and enjoying the game but will probably just rent it from Gamefly as I don't see it as having long staying power.

    I will be trying out Star Wars because I enjoy a good SP game from time to time.

    I will probably try HAWX.

    Not sure about Too Human but may give it a rent.

        What about Spore?

        The Star Wars and the Civilization game as well as Too Human also sound pretty interesting, maybe I'll give them a try.

            NCAA 09, maybe look into Bad Company as well.

              Re: Summer games, what and why/why not you getting?

              I have been extremely busy with work related things and missed a lot of the recent Xbox 360 activity. However, G4's coverage of E3 and some downtime with my job have resulted in one overwhelmed gamer. The short list for my summer games will probably include:

              Civilization Revolution - I downloaded the demo and was impressed with the overall gameplay on a console, but haven't played enough of it to pull the trigger just yet. I'm looking forward to hearing what those of you who have purchased it think of this classic series on the Xbox 360.

              NCAA '09 - This was my favorite sports series on the PlayStation 2, so I'm looking forward to getting back on the gridiron with this release for the Xbox 360. Oddly enough, I am not a Madden fanboy, so that will be a pass on my end.

              Star Wars: Force Unleashed - If the demo is even remotely decent and reviews remain positive, this will certainly be one I pick up right away. I haven't played many Star Wars games, but I like the idea of filling in the gaps between movies with game content. The overall concept seems great, playing Darth Vader's apprentice, and what I have seen of gameplay it looks to be a lot of fun.

              Battlefield: Bad Company - I was a fanatical BF2142 player, but the demo for this left a bad taste in my mouth. EA may have worked out the kinks and developed a decent multiplayer shooter, but I'll stick to the PC with the Battlefield series and wait for BF3.


              Magnum includes a few others that are on my radar, but I just can't afford to grab everything that looks half decent. At $60 a pop, I tend to buy games I know I'll sink enough time into to make it worth the purchase. Thankfully, I can go rent or borrow some of the stuff like Mercenaries 2 or Too Human.

              Since I got into the Xbox 360 scene a little later in it's lifespan, I have grabbed a few used titles and plan to spend some time catching up on what I missed. Can't think of anything better to do when the weather is too hot and humid to enjoy the outdoors. This would include:
              • Gears of War finally started it and understand the hype for its sequel
              • GRAW stepping back to play the original storyline
              • Splinter Cell: Double Agent always been a sucker for Clancy
              • Halo 3 time to bite the bullet and see what this franchise is all about


              Looking at my growing game collection, I will probably fill things out with some Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Forza Motorsports 2 to complete some of their achievements. Some people might think those points are a gimmick, but I think they help motivate players to eek out a little more life from older titles.

                  Played the Bad Company demo. Hated it compared to BF2. Major down-grade in my opinion. You can't go friggin' prone.... C'mon.
