Hi all. I just purchased an XBOX today. I am a long time gamer of the PS2 and PC but something told me to get the box. So far I have gotten 3 games for it: Hitman2, Unreal Championship, Star Wars Jedi Outcast: Jedi Knight II. I almost got Mech Assault but the guy at Circut City said it wasnt that good if you didnt have live. But the game still looks like it could be a good one. What else besides Halo would you guys recommend? I am renting Halo next week when I am off on vacation.

Well I am off to play the XBOX. Hope to see you guys around.

I reccommend Morrowind, Deathrow, Quantum Redshift, and Dave Mirra 2 (for wipeout mode, of course)

If your a Fighter, I highly HIGHLY suggest Capcom Vs. SNK 2 EO! Try to grab <a href="http://www.xbox.com/capcomvssnk/default.htm?cs_catalog=cat%2dus">this</a> game, it releases this week!!! :eek:

To me, this will be the game of the year 2003

Congrats on your purchase. But as far as MechAssault being no-good as a single player game, those folks at circuit-city are dead wrong. The single player game is great. Tons of action and great level design, with easy to understand objectives. Combine that with the fact that the graphics and sound are top-notch, and its a sure fire winner. Give it a try.

Get Panzer Dragoon Orta is you want to display the Xbox's TRUE graphic capabilities (errr as opposed to it non true ones i guess).

you got unreal and you dont have a xbox live?....made a bad choice...unreal sucks offline and to tell ya the truth its just average even with online play......should of got mechassault instead it atleast has a single player story mode....or better yet should of picked up halo or splinter cell...atleast a game that takes advantage of the xbox hardware

That's a good choice to pick up an Xbox. The Playstation 2 is still an excellent system to own. It's great to have both systems.:)

i despise turnbase rpg's:mad: whats so fun about pressing a button and it does all of the action for you....KOTOR is gonna be turn base and to me thats a shame :( that game could of been pretty neat but now they screwed it up with that turnbase style of fighting crap...i wanna do the fighting damn it! i wanna be able to swing that light saber anyway i want but instead it will swing once then wait till the bad guy swings at you then its your turn to swing....damn turnbase...... its so lame :rolleyes: oh well...hope galaxies doesnt have that crap in it

:) Turn based RPG games are not only for the battle system, they ar for the great story. Like in Final Fantasy VII. There is mini games to play and a really great story that can shed some tears. There's a lot more than entering commands. If FF, there is a time meter of the enemies attack. You have to attack the enemy quickly and enter commands in right to beat battles. It's also fun because you can upgrade weapons and travel and a world map. Your are doing the fighting in some turn based RPG games. In Legend of Dragoon and Shadow Hearts, you have to push the X button at the right time to pull off a great attack. Turn Based RPG games are my second favorite games after Platform games.

I dont have live either but i still think UC is very fun to play. I like to play deathmatch and bombing run (cant beat a game of football with guns).

Hi there! I am a reborn Xbox fan of late and have just recently gotten my Xbox back in my home! I can't understand how I lived without it for so long! I got Splinter Cell, Panzaar Dragoon Orta and Halo for my first three games with the system. And in the next week or so...Xbox Live will be entering my home too along with NBA 2k3, NFL 2k3 and NHL 2k3 so I can play some games online! Welcome to the insanity that is XBOX!
