08-23-2007, 12:59 AM

For length:
Forza 2 (115 Hours)

For online:
Ghost Recon 2

For single player and an overall good game:

*I voted Bioshock, because you didnt let the voters pick more than one choice.

I didn't even know you could do that.

defiantly Bioshock it has the most replayability it may not be the longest game but all the large gaming magazine's and shows think that this game will be a contender for the game of the year. Personally i think that this game is amazing. I plan on picking it up tomorrow or the day after.

If you are looking for some co-op then get Lego star wars because that in my mind is the best Co-Op experience for the 360 to date

I own about half of the games that are available on your poll. Here are my Quick Reviews:

- Crackdown

Tons of Fun and very addictive! Online Co-op is great, as you and a friend can blow things up left and right and watch your stature grow as you level up.

- Lego Star Wars II

The game is a Must-Have for Star War fans...even though some have called it the worst Star Wars game ever.:mad: It's comical and you'll have genuine fun with it. It's however a lengthy game, but with 2 Player Co-op, time flies by!

- Madden 08

EA can finally call themselves the Football "Champs"! Madden 08 has delivered this year. With great graphics that actually resemble the real life players. A "Smart" system, where the A.I. actually gives you a challenge and the return of the Front Office mode where you make the calls to better or worsen your Franchise. I truly believe Madden out plays All-Pro.

- Forza 2

The BEST Racing Sims on the Xbox 360, Period. From Tuning, to creating a custom Design on your car, Forza 2 is a very awesome game. Gran Turismo doesn't have Damage Effects, but Forza does. Forza is however another one of those Lengthy games and can be very repetitive. Hey, you can always Hire a Driver to earn your money.;)

I've played a few of them, but I have to say I had a lot of fun with Crackdown. It went beyond just the Beta. It takes a ton of time to 100%. The only frustrating aspect is the collection achievements. Other than that, I thought it was a fun take of the third person crime action game.

I agee with him about everything except Bioshock. If your looking for a good single player gae then I'd say The Darkness. It's online is HORRIBLE but the story is excellent. I just finished it and it's a good story and great game play. A few things about kinda suck and get old fast(shooting out lights) but you get that in every game.

08-23-2007, 08:39 AM
For single Player I would have to say Bioshock. It is simply amazing. Good length, good story, and great fun. Second choice I'd have to say The Darkness, has a great story, and it's not your average run and gun, the darkness powers add great fun.

But if you want a really really long game, Forza 2 all the way. And even tho it's just a racing game, it will really suck you in! Very addicting.

08-23-2007, 12:19 PM
I would go with Bioshock. I played most of the others and wasn't as impressed and Bioshock had me hooked immediately.

Im going to go outside the norm, and say don't get Bioshock. I feel that the game isn't worth the hype. Myself, I would get one of these games:

- Lego Starwars II
- Madden NFL 08
- Forza 2
- GRAW 2

I played Lego Starwars, and I played the demo for the others, they are all awsome. If your looking for a game thats amazing, but isn't on your list, go get Shadowrun.

It depends what kind of experience you are looking for. If you are going for a single player experience, play Bioshock or the Darkness as both are excellent single player games. If you like racing... well... If you want sports... well... it's a very strange poll. If you want my advice (cause I've already beaten most of the games on that poll) I would get them in this order...

The Darkness
Lego Star Wars

Madden 08, you can get all the achievements in one day.

08-23-2007, 04:42 PM
Bioshock, then Crackdown.

08-23-2007, 07:43 PM
This shouldn't even be a question, as long as your fond of shooters, Bioshock is probably the best game out at the moment (atleast in my eyes).

08-23-2007, 09:02 PM
dont get bioshock. if anything rent bioshock. my friend beat it on the hardest level in less then 20hours. dont buy it!!

I beat Oblivion in less than 24 gaming hours, so what is that not a "buy" game?? (I already passed it on the PC so I knew exactly how to do it and I turned the difficulty to nothing lol)

Regardless, the people that put together that work of art deserve your money. Go buy it, hell go buy the collector's edition. If you rent it, you are doing it a disservice. Give the company your money so they may make the next masterpiece.

08-23-2007, 09:37 PM
haha. rent it. they dont need your money the game sucks.

08-24-2007, 02:59 AM
those are cool games, but i'd say either madden 08 or bioshock.

08-24-2007, 03:25 AM
yeah I would pick either bioshock or madden o8.

08-24-2007, 03:38 AM
I'd say madden, it always keeps me playing...I played 07 up till 08 came out. I can't do that with much games.

08-24-2007, 12:04 PM
Bioshock is hands down the best story line on 360. Doesn't have too much replayability but it's worth every cent. You can tell they put time and money into the game/story.

08-24-2007, 12:08 PM
For value for money, I'd go with Crackdown. From what I've heard Bioshock is great but when it ends, it ends. No online means it has a very short life, even with different difficulties. I've played it at a friends, but I'm gonna rent it for myself to see if it truly is worthwhile.

Forza 2 - great to start and difficult to get the hang of but once you start turning the assist sof (which are great to get you going) then the game opens up in terms of fun and honing your lapping techniques. Totally customisable in every respect so cars that are normally rubbish you can tame and make them fun to drive (with a lot of prattling about and testing). Really good online if you get a good group. I was on for the first proper session las tnght having had several annoying experiences with stock car racers. I'm currently workin gon three hours sleep and feeling dreadful. 40 quid very well sent and worth the hideousness I'm going through now.
This game really is as indepth as you want to make it which in itself is a bit of a novelty.
Later races can be boring and simply not enough tracks. Some fors and some againsts but overall its nothign short of great news.

Crackdown - great game. Good co-op but collecting them blinkin orbs....aaargh!
Highly recommended though especially with the free content download via Marketplace.

Lego Star Wars II:-
Its not amazing but it is great fun. Co-op is great in the fact you can enter and leave as and when you please. Chep anad cheerful and well worth a blast on a sunday afternoon. think I've clocked up about 35 hours on it I think and i'm 80% done.

I'd recommend the Darkness although I've not played much of it, about 2 hours so far (Forza to be completed first - just need cars now). Looking forward to getting back on that. A good twist on the FPS genre. Already I want to punch Uncle Paulie though! :)

My 002s anyway. Any and you're unlikely to be disappointed.

if the choice is up to me it would be bioshock even though it doesnt have multiplayer
