Xbox games

#1 Posted by sfighter21 (798 posts) -

So, just got a REGULAR xbox today (for Free).  Other than the obvious like halo and kotor, what are some good games for this system?  And sorry if there is already a thread of this topic, I haven't seen one...

Also, I enjoy platformers and rpgs quite a bit...but anyway, all suggestions are welcomed!

hmm, I've never heard of that one.  Also, I didn't really hear too many GREAT things about fable II.  How does the first one fair?

I thought the second Fable was a lot better, but the first is worth a try.

I'd also recommend you get Psychonauts  for your Xbox.

Just a question, how do you access those forumsxD? By visiting the products page...?

Anyway, Oddworld: Strangers Wrath is really something of itself, you should check it out. Jeff has a video review of it^^

Would also recommend (off the games not mentioned): 007: everything or nothing (super third person action adventure, video reivew by jeff also lawl), fahrenheit, 007: nightfire, Halo: Combat Evolved, SSX 3 and maybe Splinter Cell?

Jet Set Radio Future is my second favorite game for the console after Halo 2. You have to play it! Also if your going to get Halo 2 you have to get live. If you do PM me because I'm in the mood to play some good old Halo 2. :)

On the top side bar of every game, platform, etc. wiki page there is a link at the bottom that says Forums.

I liked Sid Meiger's Pirates a lot.

dreamfall: longest journey is amazing as well, more for the story than the gameplay though!

if you like kotor, then jade empire would also be a good place to look

Max Payne 1, 2 are both great games
Genma Onimusha- if you like how Resident Evil games controlled prior to 4
Psychonauts- funny and has good platforming
Mark echo's Getting Up- lot of platforming and good action

Hmm, Is that a strategy game?  I'm not too opposed to them.  Are they're any other good rts games on the xbox?
#24 Posted by sfighter21 (798 posts) -

man, KOTOR was awesome.  Now, I must find the second one...

Outside of what has already been mentioned, Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy).
