Some good games that have recently came out are Two Worlds, Bioshock, and I think SKATE came out today.

Also if you havent, you should rent Shadowrun.

I personally hate Blockbuster for games because it seems so often that they either have all their copies rented out or aren't planning on getting a new title until four weeks after release. What I'm saying is that at the Blockbuster back home there's no way they would have it yet. So I don't know if you've already played it, but Overlord is a pretty fun game and it seems like the kinda thing that could be beaten in a rent, not sure. Good luck with Stranglehold though.

If you haven't tried BioShock, you should run, not walk, and get it now. Otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised with Stranglehold.

If I'm just renting from a store, I get something small, something that can fit into a five-day rental. I rented TMNT and that fit the bill because the game was decent and short enough to fit into a rental period. But I rent from GameFly so that isn't an issue.

Try Blue Dragon, DW: Gundam, NCAA 08, or maybe a Tony Hawk game.

Hitman: Blood Money was lots of fun and took about a week of playing 3 hours a day to beat to 1000. Otherwise Overlord looked awesome. Someone at my Blockbuster keeps re-renting the damn thing so I haven't had a chance to play.

My Blockbuster had a couple of copies yesterday, somehow they knew it was going to be big and were able to get like 8 copies on the release. If you read his posts, he already said he didn't like Bioshock.

I would suggest Bioshock, Stranglehold or Medal of Honor: Airborne.

If you're an RPG fan give Enchanted Arms a try. You get the points for beating the game, and it's battle system is different. An okay game overall that will probably take you the rental time. *Even though I haven't beaten it, getting to side tracked*

If you haven't played crackdown, and haven't gone to blockbuster yet for that matter, I would try it out. They more than likely will have a copy.

Meh, I didn't terribly love that game. What really irked me about it, was that I played the game up to the end boss with about a fair difficulty level (I'd lose sometimes, but most of the time I'd breeze through it,) but the first part of the last battle, the difficulty jumps up almost ten-fold. This is to be expected I suppose, but the only way to progress I learned, is to backtrack hours, to go train for more hours, then come back and ATTEMPT the fight again.

Yeah. Screw that.

I thought you were going to get Skate... or at least you were trying to rent a game, waiting for Skate and Halo 3. I would say Skate since you were interested in it. I don't like skating games but if you're into it, that's cool.

Both have serious issues related to gameplay? I am going to save my money from those two for sure. Get Stranglehold then.

If you want skate, just hold out until THPG.

It would be easier if you told us what kind of games you liked ;)

Anyways, personally I'm buying SKATE. That has to be a must rent for people who like skateboarding. There's that and stranglehold. I think those are the only games worth renting. Not Blue Dragon because that's a game you have to buy.
