Hey, it's a tough job, but someone has to do it, right? And as Tomonuba Itagaki, the creator of Ninja Gaiden, says, "Xbox 360 is the best. So we should wait with a great anticipation." -PK
Much has already been written about Microsoft's new console, the Xbox 360. We have a bevy of game reviews, accessories to buy, Live Arcade titles to play, and even future releases over which we drool. But not much has been written about the audio performance and capabilities of this first-of-the-next-generation contraptions. In this short review, W. Brent Latta will give you a quick breakdown of the how the system has been working for him.
Bully: Scholarship Edition was an Xbox 360 & Wii re-release of the PS2 classic. Still playable on modern consoles, it'll make you long for a sequel.
Frontlines: Fuels of War was the precursor to THQ's ill-fated Homefront series, and by most accounts delivered the better experience.
