Shooter Adventures

Two new action/shooter adventure games are coming out this week. Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, and Shadow Ops: Red Mercury. I'll probably pick them both up.

These follow in the lines of Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix, or Rogue Ops. Though the latter is a bit more stealthy than shooter. Most games like these nowadays have some mix of shooter, stealth, and puzzle. Generally an exploration and mission style. Right up my alley!

Psi-Ops has a cool twist with its psychic powers. I played a demo of it. Very awesome, and the physics are great. I'm looking forward to the "mind drain" power -- it sucks the life outta people. Woo!

Shadow Ops is more of a shooter. Also played a demo. It looks very mission-based, with mostly gunning and light on strategy. Simply tactics. Fast-paced, unlike something like Ghost Recon where you can plan things out and move a bit more slowly.
