Tekken 5 and Virtual Fighter: Evolution take the Fighting Game Crown. Soul Calibur 2 is good but nowhere near the calibur of T5 and VF:E.

If your an RPG fan, well get a PS2 insted... Xbox has what 3 good RPGs? As for Tactical games, its your choice between Splinter Cell on Xbox or MGS on the PS2... Either ports for opposite systems aren't as good as the original.

BTW Rumor has it Konami will unveil MGS4 at E3 which will be running on the PS3... but thats only a rumor...

Breakdown, Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders, and Phantom Dust are all very good underappreciated games, and each are only $20 now. I even made threads here about the later two here and here respectively, although my Phantom Dust topic went totally ignored (sheesh, see if I pay YOUR guys' topics any attention when YOU have something to say ). Also if you like God of War, Ninja Gaiden should be right up your alley.

Other great action games include Crimson Skies, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, Otogi 1 and 2, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and Brute Force in coop mode (single-player is kind blah). Oh, and if you have too much money, you should check out Steel Battalion while you're at it

Only "MUST GO BUY IT NOW" game that comes to mind right now is Ninja Gaiden... although you should pick Red Dead Revolver up since it is probably really cheap now and that games is a blast to play.

I'm getting Ninja Gaiden and Top Spin from a mate, I think that should suffice for now. Thanks for your help guys.

Default Re: Just got an Xbox.

I got an Xbox in late November, so here's some of the games that I found good.

Ninja Gaiden - see you're gonna get it, it's a really nice action game

Burnout 3 - really awesome arcade racer

Project Gotham Racing 2 - really awesome more realistic racer

DOA Ultimate - im not into fighting games for the most part, but I find DOA a lot of fun and that it has huge replayability (and it's the only fighting game I really like anyway, I don't really like Soul Calibur II or like Tekken or whatever)

Pro Evolution Soccer 4/Winning Eleven 8(same game) - incredibly awesome soccer game, though soccer is really my favorite sport, so depends on whether you like the sport

Halo 2 - I thought it was a really good shooter and good for multi with friends. It's not half-life2-good, like the story and variety aint all that, but I still thought it was awesome

Rallisport Challenge 2 - awesome rally game, what more to say (im into racing games a lot)

Fable was a good RPG too.

As for upcoming games, look out for Forza Motorsport, Jade Empire, Unreal Championship 2, Midnight Club 3..

Just picked up Halo 2, consoles are really hard for FPSs. Well, I'll have to work on it.

Edit: I just ordered a FragJoy keyboard/Mouse adapter, at least I'll enjoy the game.

Once you get used to the gamepad controls for Halo, you'll be just as good as with a mouse/keyboard. They're very intuitive once you get the hang of 'em.

I'm actually more comfortable with the xbox controller than the mouse/keyboard.
I prefer games that way. Circle strafing became loads easier.
