XBOX

BOUGHT MY KIDS AN XBOX DURING THE HOLIDAYS. HAD TO WRESTLE THEM AWAY FROM PLAYSTATION 2 SINCE THEY ALREADY HAVE THE FIRST ONE, ALONG WITH N64.
ANYHOW, THEY LOVE IT. GOT THE DVD CONTROL, THE SVIDEO ADAPTER AND A SECOND CONTROLLER.
THEY CHOSE GOTHAM PROJECT, HALO, MAX PAYNE AND CEL DAMAGE.
IT REALLY IS A NICE SYSTEM AND I AM SURE THAT THE UPCOMING GAMES WILL BE GREAT.
WE HAD RENTED THAT DELTA AIRCRAFT GAME. GOOD THING BECAUSE WE DIDN'T LIKE IT AND NOW WE KNOW NOT TO BUY IT.
WHAT GAMES DO YOU GUYS HAVE AND HOW ARE THEY?

I normally like playing games on consoles better than PC's; however, I find it exactly the opposie with max payne. I had played it on the PC a few times before it came out on PS2 and really liked it. Anyways, I got it for the PS2, and I really hate the 3 layouts they have for the controls (and I haven't found a way to customize the controls myself....am I missing something??).

I've played XBOX at Jhrody's house, and I like what I saw. He has Gotham project, and I liked it a lot.

Anyone else think there are too many buttons on todays game pads? Damn, I can't keep track of them all!! Maybe it's just me

Well, I'm not the gamer I used to be. I am finding that the games for PC, good ones, are few and far between. Not like the good ole days.

Cartoony? Check out Project Gotham racing. The cars don't get anymore realistic than those. Even the driver shifts the gears at the precise moment. Looks awfully real.
Probably one of the few games that you really don't mind watching others playing it for hours, and not caring if you get on or not. Entertaining for the players. Entertaining for the bleacher fans.
I'm surprised.
I used to play Test Drive 2, The Duel, between the Ferrari F50 and Porsche whatever, in DOS mode, way, way back. That was a great game for the day. Especially with all the add-ons.

Wait. As time goes on, you will see how the game developers create games for the strength of Bill's console. Not a big fan of Bill, but the superior box will show its true colours in due time.

Don't forget, Sony is a hardware company...Microsoft is thee software company.
My kids and their fiends love HALO and the young one loves CEL Damage. Great graphics for a kids game.

The hockey demo is awesome and the football is rock solid too, but too many controls and functions for an old guy like me.

I played Gotham racing over at my brothers...OMG...what detail! Was great, even after we found the code on the internet to unlock all the cars and all the tracks. Made me want to chuck my old Playstation.

I need an X-Box now.

They should have put an Intrepid in as the base car, along with the Austin Mini and Toyota. Then, let's have some fun.

Noliw. Works every time. And once you win some races, watch how the levels expand. Did you get to do some courses at night? Is that sharp or what?

The Ferrari and Porsches...WOW!!! Don't need mods with those babies.

If you haven't checked out Project Gotham Racing and the XBOX, head down to your local Blockbuster and rent them. You'll be hooked. Unfortunately, we will not see you on this forum for awhile.

I'll have to agree. PGR is the best (and hardest) driving game I've played. At times the game is as intense as a 4-hour session of Deus Ex or Max Payne on the PC.

I swore off consoles after the Super Nintendo as PC games were starting to stomp all over the available console games. When the Xbox was announced many moons ago, I thought, "WTF is Bill thinking?!". Then came launch day...

I was over at one of my ex-employees house and he'd just gotten the Xbox. To top it off, he'd hooked it up to his 52" widescreen HDTV. Dude popped in NFL Fever 2002 and the rest is history.

I immediately went out and picked up the box, 2 extra controllers (for a total of 3), the DVD remote, Project Gotham Racing, NFL Fever 2002, NBA Live 2002, Halo, Nascar Thunder 2002, and the HDTV video adapter.

Project Gotham as stated, imho, is the best driving game ever...with the possible exception of the old school Carmageddon for the PC when you're in the mood to do some carnage.

NFL Fever 2002 (if you can ignore the lame commentary) is a very challenging and complete football game. It is, by far, the most impressive visually I have ever seen. The closeup shots simply have to be seen. You can even see the player's veins and skin imperfections. The helmet reflections are also extremely impressive.

NBA Live 2002, while being a solid basketball game, is lackluster on the Xbox. EA Sports didn't take advantage of any of the Xbox's advanced graphics features and as a result the game simply looks like what it is...a port of a port of a port.

The same goes for Nascar Thunder 2002 as went for NBA Live 2002.

Halo is pretty nifty as a multiplayer game - I especially like the ability to control vehicles. Single player is so-so. The graphics are excellent regardless.

Also...even if you do not have an HDTV-capable display, if your TV has Component Input capabilities then you should get it. The colors are more vibrant when you use it.

I'm just waiting for these guys to unlock the box so that I can run what I want on it.

Mr. Wutang 15M

Don't get started on that note. Racing around a track is 1 thing, maneuvering around realistic city scenes is another. Why does one need so many cars? The XBOX cars are great, from the MINI to the F50. All the cars one could want and tons of realsitic city scenes. Day, night, rain whatever. It is one challenging game.

Halo, rated as one of the best games, keeps my 11 year old going for hours. He just can't get enough of it. And according to what I heard, neither can anyone else who plays it.

Max Payne is Max Payne. I haven't seen the PS2 or PC version, but its not my style.

We have a demo of the hockey, and being a Canadian, everyone who comes over, loves it.

I think the PS2 is a great system. Still popular and the PS3 will be even better. Kind of too bad for those who bought the PS2 will now have to buy the PS3 to get on par with the XBOX.

It's like buying a 2003 Intrepid when the 2004 will be much improved, to compete with all else out there.

Just wait. It' coming. Sooner than anyone expected. Now that Xbox is out, it will probably be rushed sooner than originally anticipated. And XBOX hasn't been released worldwide yet. Europe and Japan are anxiously waiting.

In the meantime, get an XBOX. You'll be happy. Your friends will be happay. And Bill will be happy!!!

Actually, if you got to xbox.com, you will notice that foreign countries are expecting it in March.

So, for once, we North Americans got something before anyone else.

Does anybody realize that the software developers will be offering upgrades to their games as time goes on, via broadband internet? I don't know if PS2 has the same luxury.
