XboxAddict Presents the Best Games of 2007

by Shawn Rozankowski

Now that 2008 is upon us the Staff here at XboxAddict takes a look back at the best games of 2007. Let me first say that 2007 was without a doubt the best year for games on the Xbox 360. We've seen games like BioShock which is one of the best looking games of all time, Call of Duty 4 which is one of the best multiplayer games of all time and how can we forget Halo 3 which is the last game in the award winning francise developed by Bungie. We took many factors into account while making this list. Factors include but weren't limited to staff reviews, member reviews, forum posts, games innovation and fun factor. We've also used quotes from the member and staff reviews, see if a quote from your review was used.
XboxAddict Presents the Best Games of 2007:

Best Party Game

Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action

Publisher: Microsoft
Developer: Screenlife

Quote from BunnyRabbit: " This game is best described as pure "family fun". I would in fact go so far as to call this the best offline multiplayer game out for the xbox 360! Whether you are winning or you are losing you will find yourself and family (or friends) enjoying this game.

The gameplay is the absolute root of appeal to this game. It is full of thousands of likely useless, but ultimately fun movie trivia questions so that this game can be enjoyed over and over again!(Like Alex Trebek's mustache!) The questions are also proposed in a number of different ways throughout each round. Anyhow, whats awesome is the simplicity. One-button and you already did it! I know it sounds lame put that way, but what I mean to say is you can permorm most actions/responses with the touch of just one button. This means your parents won't be foolishly pressing X-UP-B-B-B-A-RTRIG-Y before they get mad and tell you that the Atari was easier to power on..No confusion for them with this game, just fun! Not only that, but its even so simple that your younger siblings or possibly children can join in on the fun. "

Honorable Mention: Fuzion Frenzy 2

Best Music Game

Rock Band

Publisher: MTV Games
Developer: Harmonix

Quote from Highlite23-XBA: " It’s (Rock Band) addicting to spectators, you may have friends and family who will start off just wanting to watch, but I’ll guarantee they will eventually be jockeying for position to get in the mix. The music, the variety of genres is fantastic, not only in terms of era, but styles. From Bon Jovi to the Ramones. The Rolling Stones to Radiohead, there is something for everyone in this package, and if all the DLC’s come to fruition the game will never get stale.

This game will appeal to all ages young and old, and hardcore gamers will get a charge out of battling head to head over Xbox Live in a cyber Battle of the Bands if you will. It’s one of the best party games available; you can enjoy it with friends as well as family. So for what I originally thought might be a stretch, Rock Band turned out to be a great gaming experience. So if you have to, start digging in the sofa pillows for loose change, pass on a few DVD purchases and find a way to go pick up Rock Band. And if all else fails..."Dear Santa..." Rock Band is just that much fun. "

Honorable Mentions: Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, Dance Dance Revolution: Universe

Best Sports Game


Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: Black Box

Skate is a skateboarding video game by EA Black Box for the Xbox 360. It was released in North America on September 14, 2007 for the Xbox 360. Skate has sold more than 700,000 copies. The player controls a custom-designed character to use as their skateboarding avatar in the fictional town of San Vanelona, a conjunction (in both name and appearance) of the cities: San Franscisco, Vancouver and Barcelona. Similar to the HUD of the Grand Theft Auto series, skating challenges are marked on a mini-map, along with stores and subway stations that allow the player to traverse the city quickly. Skate is focused on the player gaining sponsors and notability through photography and video of their skating skills, eventually leading up to the X Games.

There are several "filming" challenges that allow the player to chose anyplace within a zone to create a line of tricks to meet the filming goals; the player can also place a session marker to return to a spot quickly after finishing a line. Several "spot own" locations throughout the city allow the player to try to claim that spot by beating a certain score requirement, thus "owning" the spot from other skaters. Additionally, there are jam sessions and "death races" against other AI-controlled characters. Completing challenges will generally unlock new clothing and equipment items, characters, and additional challenges to compete in.

Honorable Mentions: NHL 2K8 , Madden 08
