    Halo definitely has no center. But it still sounds awesome. And in my opininon is the best looking game on Xbox next to Dead or alive 3. I wonder if DOA beach volley ball looks as good.

    For sound in the heat of battle, I have yet to find a more enveloping and engaging experience than Ghost Recon.

    I have a Toshiba TW40x81 16x9 set. I tried running Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 in 720p...but it turns out my TV doesn't support 720 [​IMG]

    Mine wasn't even viewable, you couldn't even tell what you were looking at.

    Sega GT 2002 has very good quality surround, you can tell a lot of time was spent on it.

    Halo not just for a passive display of a great soundtrack (best around, imo) and exceptional graphics, but as an active demo of DD in-game. Having somebody who has never experienced anything beyond a PS2 sit down and play the opening battle on Silent Cartographer on Normal or Heroic is pretty cool. You get a similar (smaller scale) experience to the opening of MOH, only in real time.

    I have to second Panzer Dragoon Orta. I just started playing this over the weekend, and in my opinion it is the best-looking game available on the Xbox. Absolutely astonishing. It also happens to be a fantastic game. What an Xbox month I'm having, first with KOTOR and now PDO! [​IMG]

    Andy,

    Eternal Darkness... darn right! Although it gets annoying after a while, those random knocks on the door, crying, screaming all around you... play that badboy in the dark, you really will think you're going nuts.

    MotoGP 2 is a graphical feast, 5.1 surround is integral to the game. About the only weak spot is the engine sounds and collision sounds.

    THPS4 looks amazing on my projector @ 720p, definitely reference graphics.

    Deathrow

    A highly underrated game on the Xbox. 16x9, DD 5.1, excellent graphics and great use of all channels. Something has to be said about being cussed out by different players in all 5 surround speakers. Some great bass when you perform a special 'slowmo' move or a 'deathrow'. [​IMG]

    Yep, Eternal Darkness is certainly an HT winner. Overall, the Gamecube is much more generous with HT features than I expected. I wish my Ps2 could compete.

    Nintendo should work to make that component cable more accessible though. I'd to think people might be writing off the 'cub without having seen some of its titles in all their glory.
