Our pick of the titles that stood out at the German games convention.
Homefront - Xbox 360, PS3 and PC
For a game trying to focus on the emotional response of regular American citizens after their country has been invaded by Korea, you don't half play a gun-toting, swaggering badass: I'm fairly certain the player character could shoot an assault rifle sixteen miles with absolutely perfect accuracy. Who knows, maybe all Americans are taught that at school or something. Still, Homefront looks like one of the most promising concepts for a shooter in years, and the footage shown at gamescom 2010 suggested the game is well on the way to achieving the rare feat of mixing engaging characters and plot with action-packed shooting and dramatic set pieces.
