E3 '07: Wii, DS Civ top Take-Two's lineup

BioShock, All-Pro Football 2K8 also headline trade-show offerings from 2K Games and 2K Sports.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.--Take-Two Interactive carries the distinction of having in its portfolio a few of the most sought after titles at this year's E3 Media & Business Summit. While gamers the world over are eagerly awaiting new details on the publisher's sure-to-be-controversial Grand Theft Auto IV from its Rockstar Games division, many more are interested in titles from Take-Two's other studios. Today the publisher outlined its E3 lineup for its 2K Games and 2K Sports labels.

Besides outlining the labels' offerings, the announcement revealed that Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution will be coming to the Wii and Nintendo DS. Previously only confirmed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and "portables," the game marks the acclaimed world-building series' debut on next-generation consoles and handhelds. No version for the PlayStation Portable was listed as either being at the show or being available when the game hits US stores next spring.

2K will be showing the well-reviewed first-person action adventure The Darkness on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will be displayed alongside one of the most anticipated titles at this year's event, Irrational Games' BioShock. Awarded top honors by GameSpot at E3 2006, the dynamic first-person shooter will be shown on the Xbox 360 and PC.

2K Sports has an equally slim, but no-less-anticipated lineup of games on offer. Releasing later this month, 2K's all-star reentry to the gridiron, All-Pro Football 2K8, will be shown on both the 360 and PS3. 2K will also be dropping the puck on NHL 2K8 for the 360, PS3, and PS2.

I'm not really a big strategy game fan (the last one I played was Age of Empires 2), but Civilization for the Wii really interests me. I imagine that, beside the DS version, the Wii version may have the most comprehensive and accessible controls for stategy or RTS's ever seen on a console. This might get me into the genre, who knows. Darn you Wii and your ability to get me to do and play things I never thought I would.

The vid for 2K football was really embarrassing. I know the game isnt finshed but the character models were downright laughable.

Manhunt 2 is def on my top list but it might be a while until they get the "PC" version done lol... I cant wait for it though! GTA 4 will be on my list as soon as it comes to PC and the rest is history.

@KingKoop I hate those WWII shooters, I have Red Steel and Umbrella Chronicles is an on-rails shooter. I mean stuff like a new Doom or Half-Life or something.

"2k Sports are much better then the **** EA makes. It's about time they start making more 2k sports games." They make better football and basketball games, but not baseball. MLB 2K is nowhere near what MVP was 2 years ago. It's a shame they bought the baseball rights. MVP was so much better.

I would get Bioshock if my mom let me, but i'm only 14 so it will have to wait (Also, don't bash me because I play M games and I'm 14. It really depends on the child. I've had M games for awile now and they don't make me any more angry or influence me to do anything. Take that Jack Thompson (who is in jail now!) !). The strategy looks really interesting. Plus you get to make real time decisions!
