hey all just thought Id post about this sweet game due out in mid 2005 here is some info and screenshots: Act of War is the new real time strategy from ATARI. Ripped from today¡¦s headlines, Act of War is a frightening and believable tale of suspense, international intrigue and geopolitical military conflict. Through a techno-thriller story constructed by best-selling author Dale Brown, this real-time strategy experience puts you squarely in control of counterterrorist forces to defend cities of the world. It¡¦s the first look at tomorrow¡¦s war. No place is safe!
Act of War¡¦s game features include: — CHILLING AND BELIEVABLE STORYLINE ¡V Storyline and game universe created in close cooperation with Dale Brown, 15 times NY Times best-selling author and expert on US military, global conflict and future military technology. — EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT - Zoom down to street level on the urban battlefields of San Francisco, Washington DC, London and Moscow; all highly detailed, realistic, and fully destructible. With a game-play where success is partly determined by your ability to medevac your own wounded soldiers and take enemies prisoner (rather than killing them), contemporary/near-future combat comes to life in a very modern way. — MILITARY AUTHENTICITY - First RTS to combine a reality universe with simple, elegant game play. Using highly detailed representations of existing and experimental military technology, all to scale, Act of War offers an authentic battle experience without the authentic complexity. — Strong focus on exceptional production values (audio, cinematics, story, technology) — Full 3D with ability to zoom in to see the action up-front for full immersion into the action. — Level of detail in character animations and textures only seen in FPS games to date. — Extensive multiplayer options and single-player skirmish mode for infinite replayability.

Not bad, though something about the graphics bothers me. :uhm:
You mean that they look like cartoons?
Other then that, it looks great.
yeh ill post more screenshots when i get them you can also sign up to beta test for it over at :
also you need to know the product code to sign up here it is "AOW-PRE" without the quotes
Well let's see how well they can do in this one.
For whatever reason Atari has been slowly starting to fall apart. Most of their later games they made are crap, its a shame because Atari did alot of contribution to the gaming world in the past and pretty much started gaming.
This game does look cool though.
well they have contributed greatly to teh gaming community it would eb a shame to see them go, maybe this game will change it for them
Isn't it supposed to be a private thing to beta test? I mean, like a bad idea to post the password in public?
Mmm looks cool alright. Yeh the graphics remind me of SimCity, but hey, looks ok.
no you just go sign up and they will look at the info and choose you
