Must-have Games of Tomorrow

In the first part of the must-have series of articles, Powerplay brings you the upcoming games that you must get.

::: GEARS OF WAR (XBOX 360) :::Gears of War is a third-person shooter that many believe to be the Halo of 2006 (it is arriving in November). Players will work in teams to fight a race of creatures known as "Locust Horde". Players can even chat online to discuss strategies! The life-like graphics are there to complement the gameplay.

::: SUPER SMASH BROS. BRAWL (Wii) :::Gather your favorite characters like Snake from Metal Gear Solid and Mario and put them to a fight. What happens? This exclusive Nintendo game marks its debut on the Wii after a good showing as Super Smash Bros. Melee on the GameCube. New characters like Wario and Samus with her amour off will make the game even more exciting.

::: FORZA MOTORSPORT 2 (XBOX 360) :::Feast your eyes on the gorgeous cars as Forza makes a return. The number of cars on offer here is even more impressive than in Need for Speed Most Wanted. If you do not own a car, this is one sure-to-be excellent game you should get in order to satisfy your inner speed demon. Okay, what's stopping Forza 2 from being a fantastic game when the first Forza is already amazing?

::: METAL GEAR SOLID 4:GUN OF THE PATRIOTS (PS3) :::Ah, everybody's favorite PS game is back! Engage yourself in an even more exciting game with Snake the situations get more challenging. Oh right, you know it, don't you?

::: HALO 3 (XBOX 360) :::Are you ready to finish the fight with Master Chief? This is the last game in the Halo series and will certainly be ending off in the most fabulous style ever. The final episodes are always great, aren't they? Halo 3 is going to be no exception. Details are still vague right now as work on the game is still ongoing. Okay, just know it that it is going to end off in a bang!

::: LEGEND OF ZELDA:TWILIGHT PRINCESS (Wii) :::I am talking about the Wii version here, not the GameCube version. With the Wii-mote, this game is going to a whole lot more interesting to play. Swing the Wii-mote and Zelda's sword will swing along. Use the Wii-mote to shoot an arrow just like what you will do in reality. Much is too be expected from this Zelda games. No doubt.

::: ASSASIN'S CREED (PS3) :::This is the first time that I have heard of the audience in the game reacting to situations (The people in this game will). Push through the crowd in a hurry and you will arouse suspicion. What a realistic game! Prince of Persia meets Splinter Cell? Awesome combination! Potential hit.

::: CALL OF DUTY 3 (MULTI) :::Who can deny that Call of Duty 3 is going to be a good game? You played Call of Duty 2 before? Then you should know that playing Call of Duty games beats going to the cinema to watch a WW2 film. With more impressive visuals and the ability to blast through the walls of buildings, expect this to be another extremely well-done WW2 shooter!

::: NEED FOR SPEED CARBON (MULTI) :::The notoriety system from Need for Speed Most Wanted carries forward into this new Need for Speed game, and the excitement tags along! Imagine police chases -- Holloywood style. What's more, this new NFS game boasts some new modes. Most Wanted's police chases plus mountain racing, drifting? Cool, you have to get this!

::: HALF-LIFE 2:EPISODE 2 (PC,XBOX 360,PS3) :::The second part in the Half-Life 2 episodic content that continues the story, you simply cannot afford to miss this! The episodic content is Valve's way of bringing Half-Life 3 to the players. And yes, there are new monsters to battle in episode 2! Now, keep your eyes wide open, because episode 2 is one of the sequels to one of the finest games ever made. I hope there are new weapons too.

::: COMMAND AND CONQUER 3:TIBERIUM WARS (PC) :::Finally, after a long wait. Command and Conquer 3 is set in the year 2047 and a self-replicating alien substance, Tiberium, has infected Earth. Prevent Tiberium from falling into the wrong hands. In other words, the fate of the Earth lies in your hand. Good luck!

::: SUPREME COMMANDER (PC) :::From Chris Taylor, the creator of Total Annihilation, comes another real-time strategy (RTS) game that is set to blow anyone off. Zoom in onto the battlefields and see the hundreds of units fight, be it the land, naval or air forces. Don't forget the strategic and tactical gameplay. Expect another amazing piece of work.

Other must-have games (if you agree with me):
Red Steel (Wii) is nothing to scream about, but if you are planning of owning a Wii, this is a great buy. The graphics are great and so is the gamplay. Plus it is a new way of playing FPS games using the Wii-mote.
Final Fantasy 3 (DS) is one Final Fantasy game that North America missed out on. You may want to get this game if you are the fan of the long-running series.

Any other game that you think should be in the list? Put them down in the comments section :)
