    This week at E3 2007 we’ll see a lot of new games getting announced. Three of them from Sierra Online have been shown off early to get some pre-E3 exposure, which is pretty smart since we’ll be knee-deep in new games in the next few days. After the success of their previous games Carcassonne and Assault Heroes, these three new games: Battlestar Galactica, Switchball, and Commanders: Attack!, are all for the Xbox 360 download service Xbox Live Arcade.

    Inspired by the hit television series, Battlestar Galactica, airing on the SCI FI Channel, Battlestar Galactica is an action-packed top-down space combat game set in the universe of the hugely popular sci-fi television show. Players can take part in enormous multiplayer space battles with up to eight players online or play through the single-player campaign that includes memorable missions from the TV series. Pilots can either sign up to defend the Galactica or play as the ruthless Cylons as they seek to remove the human race from existence. With full 3D graphics to show off the detailed ships and cosmic environments, Battlestar Galactica allows players to fly four Human and four Cylon ships from the Viper II to the Cylon raider, each with unique weapon capabilities. Battlestar Galactica will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
