The newest Call of Duty title is being developed by Treyarch and it is adding some new types of gameplay to existing CoD formula. One of the sequences shown at E3 puts the player in cockpit of an aircraft and asks them to use their vantage point to give orders to their men on the ground. The player has to keep their squad away from patrolling soldiers up until the point where a confrontation becomes unavoidable. At that point the player then assumes the persona of one of the men on the ground as the fight begins.

If you like using weapons and equipment from the near future to sneak up on the enemy and then execute brutally precise takedowns, then this is the game for you. From what I have seen this game is all about following orders and keeping a low profile until the command to engage is given, and when the command is given, your enemies fall to the ground in a simultaneous dance of death.
Medal of Honor

According to Hilary this game is a cross between Call of Duty and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and it may also be the best multiplayer game of this year. Hilary is not a man (well, he is actually a man) who would say these things about a game that he is not very impressed by. One of the interesting things about this game is the fact that it is being created by two development houses. Electronic Arts LA is in charge of the single player and multiplayer gurus D.I.C.E are crafting the multiplayer portion.
