War! Huh! What is it good for...?

When it comes to first-person shooters set in wartime, there's a couple of franchises that immediately spring to mind. With titles like the Call of Duty and Medal of Honor franchises already firmly established with extensive fan-bases, is there room for more?

Marines: Modern Urban Combat is set on the deadly streets of Beirut and has the player taking the role of a US Marine as they lead a team of four in a "Real-World Campaign". Gamers' leadership skills will be tested as commands have to be issued to each of your squad members. If you find yourself struggling to complete the missions, a second player can join in as a rifleman in the cooperative mode. If, however, you're in more of a competitive mood; you can take on friends in a multiplayer split-screen mode.

Making use of the Wii's intuitive Remote controls, this first-person shooter is scheduled for release on 16th June in Europe where it will be published by Oxygen Games. Marines: Modern Urban Combat is already available in North America where it's published by Destineer Games.
