The lineup includes games based on such highly anticipated movies as Sony’s Spider-Man 2, DreamWorks’ animated Shark Tale and Paramount’s effects-laden Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, as well as id Software’s 3D action game DOOM 3.

Also previewing at the Activision booth are the Creative Assembly’s award-winning RTS title Rome: Total War, Peter Molyneux of Lionhead Studios’ innovative new Hollywood mogul simulation The Movies, the eagerly anticipated installment Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Vampire: The Masquerade–Bloodlines and X-Men Legends, the first 3D action-RPG based on the popular Marvel characters.

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is based on the book series and upcoming Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies film starring Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep and Jude Law as the voice of Sonny, a two-year-old character brought to the screen in part by digital animation.
