Xbox 360: What Should You Buy?

Just bought a system? The IGN team lays out the pros and cons of all the best Xbox 360 games on the market.

Let's say for a second that you didn't rush out on November 22, 2005 and buy a $399.99 Xbox 360. Let's say for a second you were too broke or, maybe, you just couldn't find one. Just pretend. With a few exceptions, Microsoft had made up for its early lack of systems by providing a regular flow of Xbox 360s into retail channels and today. Right now second wave buyers or borderline fence-sitters are finally breaking down and are buying Xbox 360s. But many questions still remain unanswered. What games should you buy? What's worth your hard-earned salary? Which games should you avoid? IGN can save you from throwing away cash with this helpful mid-summer guide.

Well I think it's quit complete, except there is always a subjective opinion included.

And the rescent price drop of some games also.
If you ask me, Kameo needs te be mentioned also. Especially when you can pick it up in the States for about 29,95 dollar and hopefully for the same amount of Euro's soon overhere also.

They missed out some other games (arcade ones also like Uno) and it would be nice if they had shown the games up till the end of the year worth waiting/saving your money for like (well this one everyone knows to get) Gears of War, Forza 2 and others.

The best thing is Condemned also lowered in price in USA, so together with Kameo 2 games for the price of one... That's fun!

if you just bought a 360...take this advice...if you like online shooters get Call of Duty2 (a great single player too)

If you just bought a xbox 360 buy the launch games. They are cheap and really fun. Like condemmed, PDZ, call of duty 2, kameo, PGR, NFS Most Wanted

Wolfenstein: The New Order Is The Last Of Its Kind

Wolfenstein: The New Order turns ten years old today, so we decided to play it again and discovered just how much of an extinct kind of game it is.

It's an outstanding game and so was The Old Blood. Also a lost era of gaming. Interesting, I received a physical copy of The Old Blood 9 years ago today from Poland. It was digital only in North America initially upon release so I had to import.


Wolfenstein: The New Order - A Highly Rated FPS That Hasn't Stood the Test of Time

Wolfenstein: The New Order launched 10 years ago today, but can it stand up to the modern FPS titles it inspired?

I disagree. Its still a fantastic game, with very good gunplay and a surprisingly loveable cast of characters and a good story trough many different and interesting setpieces

All The New Order needs for my tastes is a this gen enhancement patch.

I played New Order a couple of years after launch and I give it an 8/10. The shooter holds up because it is focused on being a good shooter. There is no crafting, no RPG elements, no open world find the question mark Weapons are fun. Enemies are fun. Levels offer a nice mix of stealth and shooting. You get to be the predator; this isn’t a game about fending off waves of enemies while a robot companion unlocks a door. Most importantly, New Order is the last of a dying breed of single player shooters.

Singleplayer shooters are still getting released every year, just look up "boomer shooters" and you'll find an an abundance of them. AAA fps campaigns, not so much.

Last year had Trepang2, RoboCop: Rogue City, Turbo Overkill, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, Dread Templar, Sprawl and more

The games you mentioned are not from AAA developers. Wolfenstein likely had a budget that was probably as big as all those games you mentioned combined. I'm not knocking the new wave of retro shooters. I absolutely love them (I think some get much higher review scores than they deserve though). I just really wouldn't describe Wolfenstein as purely a boomer shooter based on the relatively cohesive story, with cut scenes and is fully voice acted. Full set piece moments.

AA development seems to be focused keeping the single player solo experience alive. But the big developers are only concerned about the MTX and milking players who enjoy multiplayer.

ChasterMies1d 10h ago (Edited 1d 10h ago )

The age of AA shooters. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I like less expense, shorter games.

Weird all the Wolfenstein articles.

Can you guess what will be announced at Xbox showcase?
