I had some trouble deciding between Winter and Aliens: Crucible. Both are survival horror games but I decided that the Aliens RPG wouldn't be missed as much since there is two other Aliens games coming out and there aren't that many Mature games for the Wii.
Winter was created in the hopes of reinventing the survival-horror genre. Early on in the game the main focus would be too survive the harsh environment created by the mysterious blizzard.
"Mia, the main character, wakes up inside an ambulance with no memories of how she got there. She treks toward town seeing signs of monstrous creatures inside the storm."
To me, this is the sounds of a great beginning to a great game. It should be hard enough to survive the storm itself, but even harder to remain alive after encountering whatever lays inside the storm.
Winter has the content to make an amazing game and N-Space, the developers, would love to carry on where they left off. This would be a game I couldn't wait for to hit retail shelves. Yes, that means I'd buy a Wii.
4. Project H.A.M.M.E.R.
Announced at E3 2006 for the Wii, Project H.A.M.M.E.R. planned to let you use your Wii's remote as a giant hammer.
You are Project H.A.M.M.E.R.'s cyborg prototype and are equiped with an extraordinary hammer. Killer robots are attacking cities across the United States, and the military is hopeless against them. That's where you come in, swinging your mighty hammer around the screen you'd crush and smash your enemies. The only hope of humanity at stopping the robot invaders you'd use the Nunchuk controller to maneuver around varied environments while using your Wii remote as you would a real hammer. I don't know about you but smashing things with a hammer without having to pay for damages is a dream come true to me.
3. Earth Worm Jim PSP
Now I've never played the original Earth Worm Jim since I was to young, but I would have really liked to get a chance too from what I've heard about it. To bad I'm going to have to wait since Earth Worm Jim PSP won't be coming out any time soon.
Earth Worm Jim was supposed to have 8 different levels each with different ways to play through depending on what you want to do. With a variety of levels and the ability to dance it was looking to be atleast an interesting and replayable game.

2. Six Days in Fallujah
After Konami decided to pull away from Six Days in Fallujah this game has been up in the air. Ultimately caused by it's sensitive topic, everyone has different opinions on whether or not it should be released so soon.
A survival-horror military shooter, it was created with an engine where anything is destructible.
The fear in this game doesn't come from monsters or zombies but the unpredictable tactics of real insurgents. Atomic Game employees where very close to some of the Marines who where in the battalion who fought in the battle, and after decided to create the most realistic shooter to date. Most realistic shooters you can tell are obviously fake at some point or another.
Complete with real events that happened during the battle, provided by the Marines, they hoped to show what war really was like. Not only the physical situation but what's happening emotionally to the soldiers. You'd soon be afraid to open doorsways, or go into narrow spaces. You can enter a room where it may not look like anything's in the but you may see dust whirl or a shadow move and know your in trouble. Some insurgents know english and fool you by calling you into a dark room.Destructible environments will play a big role in how realistic the game is. Instead of taking the doorway into a house you know someone's hiding in, blow a hole in the wall with C4. Insurgents were also taking drugs so the could take a bullet or two and still fight.
The great gameplay though, was not enough to stop the controversy surrounding this game , especially when the war is still raging on and it's impacted so many families.
1. Eight Days
Eight Days is an action game that was being developed for the PlayStation 3. The game, set over the course of eight days, is about two characters looking for a mob syndicate, each for different reasons. The "good" character is searching for the mob syndicate after he kidnaps his son. The "bad" character attempts to get his revenge (oknown reason). The game would take place in eight different states, and could have been one of the biggest game maps to date. The game would have also included a real life clock so if it was night then the game would be in night also. If this game had ever came out it would have rivaled GTA IV and Saints Row 2.
