Game Profile

Special: Our weeklong look at our 52 favorite games of 2007 reaches the homestretch with part 4.

Theatre of War
Platform: PC
Developer: 1C Company
Release Date: April 19, 2007

"Anyone who's familiar with 1C and Battlefront's previous games will have high expectations coming into Theatre of War. 1C was of course responsible for the classic flight sim IL-2 Sturmovik, while Battlefront is the team behind the amazing Combat Mission series. Even with a few problems still to be ironed out, this game keeps up the tradition of excellence with its commitment to realism and extremely detailed control of individual units. Thinking gamers will appreciate the fact that Theatre of War presents them with a series of tactical problems rather than simply a chance to rack up the body counts. And anyone who's been jaded by the ease of other mainstream RTS franchises will enjoy the fact that this is a game that doesn't coddle its players: anyone who can say they've completed any of these campaigns on ?difficult? has certainly earned their bragging rights." - Jason Cisarano

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Platform: PlayStation 3
Publisher: SCEA
Developer: Naughty Dog
Release Date: November 20, 2007

After toiling away in the Jak & Daxter universe for years, Naughty Dog has branched out into the Tomb Raider/Indiana Jones-inspired Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. But Uncharted is a beautiful game in its own right that, while it has failed to light up the PS3 sales charts, will go down in its own brand of history as fantastic action title. - John Scalzo

Virtua Fighter 5
Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Publisher: Sega
Developer: Sega-AM2
Release Date: February 20, 2007

"Virtua Fighter 5 may not go down as the most charismatic fighting game around, but it gets it done in the gameplay department, which is what matters most anyway. More accessible than in the past, but still requiring a substantial investment to get the most out of it, it tries to open itself to more casual players, which is a good thing, especially in this case where it's still more useful a game to those who dedicate themselves to it." - Adam Woolcott

WarioWare: Smooth Moves
Platform: Wii
Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Intelligent Systems
Release Date: January 15, 2007

"With its innovative ideas and controls, WarioWare: Smooth Moves is a great addition to any Wii library and is among the top games currently available for the system. While the single player mode won't last you a long time, challenging others to break your score is where the game's bread-and-butter is at. Highly recommended." - Jason Young

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade
Platform: PC
Publisher: Blizzard
Developer: Blizzard
Release Date: January 16, 2007

"World of Warcraft was already an immersive and in-depth game prior to the expansion pack. With the Burning Crusade, players are now allowed an opportunity to spend their honor points to buy new items to help balance out the casual players with the hardcore players once they hit the level cap." - Jason Young

Zack & Wiki: Quest For Barbaros' Treasure
Platform: Wii
Publisher: Capcom
Developer: Capcom
Release Date: October 23, 2007

A little over a year ago, we asked if the Wii would be able to save the adventure game. If Zack & Wiki: Quest For Barbaros' Treasure is any indication, it most certainly will. The game's great puzzle and pitch perfect Wii Remote control should be bringing the adventure game to a whole new generation of players. But instead, the game's ridiculous title (the game is known as the much better Treasure Island Z: Barbaros' Treasure in Japan) has no doubt contributed to its criminally low sales. - John Scalzo
