I don't know if I like the new Platinum (silver) DVD cases that much. DOn't get me wrong, the prices are great, but I kinda' like the green xbox cases.

BTW, I'm in Canada, and the Platinum games are $29.99 for those who care. OF course this is pretty much on par with the US/CDN exchange.

What's awesome? Amped the game? Or the fact there are platinum hits now?

Hahah, I loved Amped when I first got it too. Does anybody have Project Gothem, and if so, is it any good?

i have to agree....i like the new art on the sleve itself...but not the silver box....

but ive seen people selling just green xbox cases on ebay for like $5 for 10 of them....i might have to look into one of those as these platinum hits games expand

I just got Project Gothem like two weeks ago for $20 and its fantasic. For $20 you cant go wrong.

Its not your average racing game...because you cant just win a race, you have to do it with style....adds lots of challenge to the game and challenge = fun and longetivity

PGR is a good multiplayer party game. I think Max Payne is a Platinum Hit too. That'll be cool, I'm like the last person on the planet who hasn't played that game yet.

ive had it on PS2, have it on xbox, and plaed it on PC.....

All games are identical except for graphics.....

PC and Xbox look the same, PS2 has worse grafx...

Also PC version gets mods....so if you have a good enuf PC get the PC version, otherwise for $20, max payne is a great buy on xbox...

oh and BTW id reccoment you pick up a guide too, I hate using them and still needed one for this game, it can get confusing sometimes

I beat it without a guide. Well, my friend had to tell me how to down the chopper but that is it.

I would like to clear everyone up that is confused by this:

Yes, it is true that there are games that you can find for $19.99...but, the "Platinum Hits" are a special group that is also $19.99....they come in silver cases to distinguish them from other budget game prices.

Does all of this make a huge difference? Not really...I'm just making a clarification on what the difference is between a lower priced budget game and a game that belongs to the "Platinum Hits" collection. :)
