I have recently purchased an X-box, along with Kung Fu Chaos and Halo. Since I am far long in Halo, and have beaten Kung fu chaos, I need some new games. Ones I am considering are Splinter Cell, Indiana Jones, Tao Feng, Unreal Tournament, and when it comes out, Ninja Gaiden. Any other games you can recommend? I'm not too picky when it comes to genre (though I am not an RPG guy, and I am covered with sports games on my PS2).

You poor bastard.

Anyway, if you need games, wait two or three days and buy Soul Calibur II. If you can't wait that long, Panzer Dragoon Orta, or Midtown Madness 3 if you're planning to go online via Xbox Live. Apart from that, I can't think of much of anything that isn't already covered by the PS2.

Gte the Star wars Kinghts of the republic. It's awesome for a rpg and I'm not a big rpg guy. Brute force, Dead to Rights, The Hulk, Buffy, and Burnout is all I can think of. X-Box not a bad sys, but needs more games.

Raw 2 in sep.

As an x-box owner, I'll list the good games you need to get. If your into to online and sports go with the next Madden game. I mean theirs no better way to play in my opinion.

Splinter Cell
Get a Model S controller just incase your didn't come with one.
Star Wars: Knights of the old republic
Soul Calibur II

Raw 2 looks good too.

While I generally respect your gaming opinions, PS2 has no KOTOR. KOTOR is great. It made me love Star Wars again.


And I don't even own an X-Box

And there's a million of us just like me
Who dress like me, walk, talk, oppress like me
Mustache like me, a big piece of trash like me
And just might be a piece of shit, but not quite me!

Now, my tastes are known to be a little odd, but I'll throw my $0.02 into the ring anyway.

Jet Set Radio Future
Hunter : The Reckoning
Crimson Sea

And possibly Dead to Rights too, but that can get frustratingly difficult at times.

Back in the day (way back 1 year ago) when I owned an X-box, my favorite game was Morrowind. Definetly only for an indepth role-player though, as it takes a lot of "getting into" to enjoy it.

If you have a fast enough computer though, just skip the X-box and go straight for the PC (since it plays better and you can get the two expansions}. But for only 20 bucks, it's a good deal for and RPG fan.

Splinter Cell and Hitman 2 are both good action games, and you could probably pick them up used for 20-25 bucks. Halo is self-explanitory.

Mechassault (good for the $20 it cost me on it's own, crazy fun w/ live)

Deathrow - an awesome sleeper title, but it may be hard to find. Futuristic full contact sport.

I like Tony Hawk 2x because you get all of the levels from Tony Hawk 1, 2, and some bonus levels - all with the Xbox graphics. I played the first two games on DC and PS1 - and it was worth the $20 used to play them again with the Xbox graphics.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Indiana Jones and Splinter Cell are both good choices. You can find some good deals on Splinter Cell just about anywhere now if you check the ads.

I don't even like RPG's but I can also confirm the greatness of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Rent it first if you don't like the genre though.

Soul Calibur II would be a good choice too. Hitman 2 is a platinum hit now so it's only 19.99. Same for Project Gotham Racing. It gets amazingly hard though, so be warned.

You may want to rent Inside Drive. I though 2003 played better than any other basketball game ever. It doesn't have the flash of ESPN Basketball or NBA Live, but if you like realistic statistics like shooting percentages, rebounds, etc it is the one to get. 2004 should be coming soon and it will be the first basketball game I've bought since Tecmo NBA Basketball.

If none of those intrest you, find a friend with an Xbox and Halo, get some S controllers and a link cable (or lan) and play some six or eight player CTF on Blood Gulch until the sun comes up. Once you get over eight players (4 v 4) it gets a little too crazy, esp if some players really suck.

I really can't wait to play Halo 2.

Some of the good games I have include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, MotoGP, Jet Set Radio Future, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and Project Gotham Racing. Dead or Alive 3 is decent, but the single player isn't as good as Soul Calibur. The wrestling games aren't too good now, but Raw 2 should change that. Buffy shares the same engine as Indiana Jones, but the emphasis is on addicting hand-to-hand combat. If you can, get Xbox Live. The price for a starter kit will increase by $20 soon.

I have to second Knights of the Old Republic. Not only did that game make me actually turn on my Xbox for the first time in months (I still had RAW in the machine, and I bought that the day it came out and grew tired of it almost immediately.), but I started playing in on Saturday morning, and I've now amassed about 11 hours in my light Jedi and about four in my Sith. Insanely cool, and a reason to actually buy an Xbox. (The first reason to buy an Xbox, in my opinion.)

Heh. I don't like Star Wars properties, so I'll stay out in the hall with my PS2 and my Gamecube.

Morrowind is a good choice if you can stick with it and Jet Set Radio is the best underrated game ever! If you really want online play a PS2 is best or GC if you are a Phantasy Star Online fan (i'm Takeshi Angel if you do play!)

Enter the mind of the Purple Pixie!

Guessing that if you wanted GTA or Vice City, you'd have already gotten them for the PS2, but those new X-Box screenshots look mighty nice. And if you didn't get them for the PS2, why not now? 40 bucks for the bundle is a steal.

It's bad enough that the "arcade perfect" MK1 was half-assed, now they're doing crappy jobs on a disc that is nothing BUT emulated games? Ugh.
