One upcoming game, that has gotten almost zero press, but looks like an awesome game, is Freedom Fighters...
In a world where the Soviet Union won the Cold War, a fierce conflict is unfolding in the streets of America. Taking on the role of Christopher Stone, players evolve from an average New Yorker into a fearless patriot who recruits and leads an army of freedom fighters in the streets of New York City. Freedom Fighters combines the depth of a squad based game with the intensity of an action-packed war game that unfolds in the streets, subways, and buildings of the city.
For the UI geeks out there, one of the more interesting UI designs in the game is the circular weapon selection menu seen to the left. I suppose it's ironic though that this type of menu is best suited to a random access, mouse based pointer selection system, rather than the linear tab-like progression used in the game.

I especially love that a huge monkey wrench is in that menu as a selectable weapon. Blunt force trauma baby!

Previews are available at GameSpot and IGN.
