Unreal Tournament 2007

While many other developers are building their next-gen games with Epic's top-drawer Unreal 3.0 engine, the muscle behind UT2007, which speaks well for the game's potential. Now the bad news: Epic says a top-flight video card is required to run the game with a decent frame rate at even moderate resolutions.

Still, some games are worth the upgrade, and once you see UT2007, there may be no going back. Say goodbye to the last generation of games with your old video card. UT2007 will be scorching motherboards and eyeballs later this fall.
