    360 Game advice

    I have DoA 4 that I'm going to trade in at Game (not too bad a deal at the moment). My problem is that I can't think which game to get in its place.

    I've owned:

    PGR3 - Not that impressed so I sold it
    PDZ - Didn't really like it and traded it in
    Fifa - Got it with the console and its Fifa: nice looking but pretty rubbish. Waiting for PES
    NFS: MW - Own it and I think its a great fun game
    FN3 - Once again own it and its a great game
    GRAW - Just bought it and loving it

    Others I've discounted:

    Oblivion - Own it on PC
    Quake 4 - Own it on PC
    CoD 2 - Own it on PC

    Unsure about Farcry. I own it on PC but is the 360 version any good?

    So basically anyone recommend a decent game for me to get?

    Yeah PGR3 isnt great

    I was going to suggest GRAW but you have it. How about Burnout revenge? it piddles over pgr3 from a great height.

    Farcry is terrible on 360. 6/10 game.

    Right then one vote for burnout revenge. Think I played the demo and wasn't hugely impressed - is it really that good?

    I have burnout revenege and it must be my most played xbox 360 game. Plently of tracks and challenges to complete and a real rewarding game for putting in the time and effort to complete the challenge sheets by unlocking nice cars Its actually not an easy game to get gamer points for imo, due to the amount needed to do and the time you neded to invest to get them. But i'm not a gamerscore whore so it doesnt matter for me.

    The filter is blocking gamer points as one word???

    I would also say Burnout mainly cos it good fun multiplayer and also the fact you have discounted Oblivion from the list

    Burnout for sure, I like Far Cry Predator, playing an awful lot of Top Spin 2 right now and Fight Night 3 is great for when you have had a really crappy day
    Please do not message me about Scan Free shipping, I no longer work for HEXUS.net

    So you like Farcry Matt? I like the PC version a lot and was wondering if the 360 game was worth it to refresh me on Farcry?

    Like I said I wasn't too keen on burnout demo but the game may be different.

    I have Oblivion on PC - I mean I'm assuming its not worth getting on 360 if I have it on PC? Or is it?

    Another vote for Burnout but then I really like PGR3, also playing Blazing Angels which aint bad for the &#163;24 I paid for it (playasia.com).

    Playasia?

    Cheap prices there. Are the games the same as you would buy over here?

    Of course not. The x360 won't be any better than your current set up. I was being a silly fanbois.

    No they are Asian region of Xbox 360 games but some games are region free e.g. Blazing Angels. It's says NTSC on the box, which is all in English, but aparently plays on pal systems & definitely plays at 1080i on my projector.

    They usually show on page whether it's pal compatable i.e. plays on a uk xbox 360.

    Was gonna get Burnout (despite not being too keen on demo). Then I realised BF-2 is out today on the 360. I think that I may get that instead (just sold PC version) what dya think?

    I have heard mixed reviews regarding BF2 on the Xbox - there is a demo on the marketplace I would say best bet is to download the demo and see what ya think
