Ninja Gaiden
Rallysport Challenge 2. Better than PGR2 IMHO
Kung Fu Chaos - seriously, a brilliantly fun game.
Halo
Links Golf

Those are the ones I've been playing since getting my Xbox at the start of the month.

Splinter Cell 2 - Most inventive use of online gaming I've seen
PES 4 - Arguably the best footie game, now online! (released nov)
Halo 2 - This years must have game (rel nov)
GTA3 double pack - GTA3 and Vice city. 2 bestsellers in one

If you had a "special" or American Xbox I'd say Madden 2005 but sadly it's not online in Europe.

I don't think Tiger's online is it? Loads of forumites have Links though, so I'd get it because of that

When was the last truly good game released for the xbox? (UK only)
I don't think I've really touched my xbox for games since Ninja Gaiden and then must be a good 8 - 10 months old now. I guess it's probably the summer drought or something coz the xmas line up looks good as it did last year.

Truly good? Hmm. Ninja Gaiden. Rallisport Challenge 2. The Chronicles of Riddick (most recently).

Then we have OutRun2 and Fable coming soon, both awesome games, just completed Fable, gorgeous! As well as Halo 2 of course.

Just thought I'd chuck these into the mix ...

Grabbed by the Ghoulies - A really enjoyable game, which deserved better than the reviews it got in the press. (currently available instore at GAME in their 2 for £30 offer)

Voodoo Vince - a 3D platformer, with humour remeniscent of the old Lucasarts adventures (plus WH Smith are/were selling it for £4.99 instore by me)

The Thing (£4.99 at Toys R Us)

Dead or Alive 3, and the notorious DOA Extreme Beach Volleyball.

Burnout 3 is fantastic.
I dont rate outrun 2 much, but some like it.
Starwars battlefront is v good, it will great if you have live.

ninja gaiden, easily the best game i've played this generation, not as hard as some people say, you just have to persevere, it's a game you really do get better at the more you play

pgr2,toca 2 and burnout 3 for driving games, outrun 2 is looking amazing at the moment too

knights of the old republic is rated by almost everybody, i still have'nt forced myself to play it yet though

halo obviously and timesplitters 2 for a really cheap fps

panzer dragoon orta for a cheap old fashioned shooter

well I have been playing the LOTR games which are fun (not specific to the console though).
Outrun 2 = limited but fun if you like driving games
Fifa 2004 = best footie game available for now. beautiful but a bit decepointing on the gameplay.
Simpsons all the way!
