    Here is a link to a trailer for a soon to be released game of which the graphics look amazing

    Home | HAWX | Ubisoft

    I reckon the graphics quality shown is for the console.

    I guess I'm bordering on pacifism. I get indigestion and jumpy nerves. Very realistic.

    Looks pretty good...

    There was another demo/short movie doing the rounds recently which apparently was a game that was going to be in direct competition with HAWX

    Found it: Check this out, shame it was stopped as it looked it going to be awesome!

    Indeed a shame kemical. It certainly looks good but i wonder what the reason for cancelling it was.

    Not sure really but the articles at the time hinted at global recession and generally a lack of cash...

    Like you say... It's a shame as it looks amazing...

    Just to digress a moment...

    That particular games manufacturer (THQ) brought out games called 'Supreme Commander' and 'Supreme Commander-Forged Alliance'.
    These were based on an original game called 'Total Annihilation' which I used to play years ago (1997). I still play these games almost every day and was really happy when the above manufacturer announced 'Supreme Commander 2' (although to be fair THQ is just the distributer and it's actually 'Gas powered games', run by Chris Taylor, that actually manufacture the games). So perhaps they have decided to concentrate their efforts on to just that one game?
