    I only own two Xbox games;

    Max Payne

    Halo

    I've finished them both (on the same day too!). Anyway, can anyone give me a good game to grab? I like action, adventure type games first and foremost, fighters and sports second and third respectively.

    I was thinking Silent Hill 2, Blood Omen 2, maybe Gunvalkyrie.

    From what I'm reading, nothing is really grabbing me as a next purchase, some great rental potential although.

    Thanks.

    How about Jet Set Radio Future? You may want to add Oddworld: Munch's Odyssey to your list of action/adventure games to check out, too. DOA 3 might interest you if you like fighting games.

    Blood Omen 2 is a Very Good Choice

    Rallisport Challenge is a good one as well

    Knockout Kings 2002 is not bad either

    My situation is similar in that I've beaten Halo and while NHL2k2 and Nascar Thunder are both cool I feel the need for a new title. If the game turns out to be as good as the previews then next for me will probably be Mike Tyson boxing.

    I really recommend Jet Set Radio Future. It took me a few minutes to get used to it and the controls and initially I appreciated the graphics but wasn't sure about the gameplay. It didn't take too long however to get hopelessly addicted to the game. Highly recommended. I also really enjoyed Munch's Oddysee and I think it had a price drop recently. Also consider Wreckless...although some people didn't care for it, I found it pretty enjoyable.

    I can't believe noone has recommended UFC:Tapout!

    This is one of my favorite fighting games of all time and my favorite Xbox game by far.

    I've been having fun with Genma Onimusha and SSX Tricky, especially SSX Tricky...

    I rented Rallisport Challenge and it did nothing for me.

    Based on what you've said earlier in the thread I would recommend=
    Blood Omen 2: It is beautiful graphically, very dark and plays like a well made Tomb Raider with Vampires - and some of the best plot/voice acting/cinematics ever in a game. [​IMG]
    Jet Set Radio Future: Skating, platform type game...maybe?!? Hehehe VERY GOOD though. Maybe rent it first to see if its your type of game.
    Have Fun.

    Rallisport Challenge.

    I have DOA3, SSX Tricky, Gotham Racing, Rallisport, Halo, and Max Payne - Rallisport is definitely #2 behind Halo.

    I will sell you my SSX if want that, though.

    Dean, how does Tony Hawk 3 'feel' with the regular XBox controller?

    I only played Hawk 3 on the X-box for a very short period since I already have it for the PS2. The PS2 controller is way better than the MS controller for this game, but I am going to buy those adapters for the PS2 controllers so I can use them on my X-box. I mostly want them for Amped. The game just seems like it would be a lot better using the Sony controller. Hopefully the new S controller from MS will remedy the problem for both Amped and Hawk.

    500,000 points is easy on the Cruise ship. Just grind that railing all around the main deck of the ship and you will have 500,000 in no time flat.
