    Well I just traded in my gamecube for an XBox. I dont know but lately I have been very dissapointed in the games that the Gamecube and Xbox have been offering. I bought Metroid Prime and I thought it sucked. Now I am not a big fan of FPS. I actually think they are the worst way to play a game BUT I am a HUGE fan of action games. I still have my PS2 and I absolutely LOVE Onimusha 1 (didn't care for the sequel), Devil May Cry and Metal Gear Solid. Those are the only 3 games I play over and over on my Playstation. So my question is what games can you guys tell me to get for my XBox? I currently have NFL2K3 which looks amazing on my HDTV Widescreen TV but I really want to get a good XBox action game. If it's 2 players thats even better b/c I luv multiplayer games anyways. I rented Halo and it was ok but like I said before, I really don't care for FPS at ALL. I played Splinter Cell and just wasn't my type of game. For some reason it just reminds me of a computer game and I hate computer games. So any suggestions???

    MechAssault (best online, but still pretty good multiplayer offline)
    Jet Set Radio Future
    Fatal Frame might be a good game for you.
    The XBox's greatest strengths are currently:
    online gaming
    sports titles
    racing titles (they need a good wheel though)
    sega titles
    first-person 'shooters' of various sorts
    I doubt anybody would disagree with my assessment. Of course, there are other noteworthy titles, but those are the areas of strength...and they are pretty damned strong.
    With titles coming from Rare, Lionhead, Blizzard, and others, a more diverse lineup is on the way.

    MechAssault might be good as well. That has a single player campaign, as well as multiplayer support and Xbox Live support.

    *EDIT*
    Oops. Didn't see that you had played SC already.

    Hey thanks for the quick reply guys. On another note, how come some of the bigger developers such as Capcom and Konami have yet to make some original games for the X-Box? The only company that is making games on the X Box that I am excited about is Rare.

    You didn't like Splinter Cell!? Each to his own I guess. However, there are a few other decent action games on X-Box. The Thing is pretty good and it's awesome if your a fan of the movie. Also, Deathrow has turned out to be one of the box's better games as well.

    DOA3. And get the bonus costumes available on many of the early X-box mag discs.

    Great fighter.

    I would second buffy the vampire slayer. Truly a great game that went mostly unnoticed. Awesome control and good story. Best thing is the same people that made it are the ones making the new indiana jones game. Here's to hoping it fares as well.

    You don't like HALO, Splinter Cell, or Metroid...

    yikes, I would put those as my top three games over the last couple of years...

    I'm not sure if my suggestion will help since our tastes appear to be vastly different, but I really enjoyed Max Payne, Ghost Recon, and Hitman 2

    Is Buffy really that good? I read bad reviews of it. Extended Play said that the camera was bad and the game got brutally hard towards the end.

    Go for Deathrow, especially if you have a friend or two you can play with on a regular basis. My friend and I play it every weekend when we get together to watch football games (currently playing the Extreme difficulty).

    I second Deathrow, if you care for sports games at all, it is a huge sleeper hit.


    Pardon me for asking, but what made you love MGS2 and not like Splinter Cell? To me, they are almost the exact same gameplay with some different gadgets and storyline (I love em both.)

    Buffy has a fine camera. The dream level IS really pissy, this I'll grant but it's a great game. And it's $30 SRP now.
