    well, a lot of people will tell you halo was the best game on xbox, but they'd be wrong

    AMPED 2 is the epitome of gaming, and the best game xbox had in it's lifespan

    capcom vs snk 2 and KoF 2002/2003 are also good [​IMG]

    I loved the Pirates of the Caribbean RPG (No Depp)
    Murakumo was a very hard game, can you beat it? (It got bad review for being so hard)
    Robotech: Battlecry

    Those are the "little known" xbox games that I like the most

    I didn't enjoy MGS(or any other MGS game).

    The lack of inverted control made it impossible for me to play.

    Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath defines what is wrong with gaming today. A fantastic game, an outstanding story, gameplay bursting with originality and the game didn't sell. Overlooked by the majority of gamers due to poor marketing, it's a crime that the shit surrounding this game drove the developers to abandon videogames for good [​IMG]


    Ninja Gaiden Black
    Pro Evolution Soccer 5 +patch (I used k_patch, but there are several alternatives on the torrent sites)
    Half-life 2
    Black
    Beyond Good and Evil
    MAME for 2D fighters and retro games

    Knights of the Old Republic both 1 and 2. Although 2 is extremely broken, a lot of stuff was cut out, it still pretty good.

    "35. Elder Scrolls III (8.5)"

    No. This game looks so bad in 640x480, it made my eyes bleed. Literally.

    17. Marvel Vs Capcom

    Use the mame rom instead. Its only 22mb and the xbox version will be over 2gb. While you're at it, get Marvel vs Street Fighter and the SF Alpha series (Alpha 3 is a little jerky at times mind). Same goes for Mega Man Compilation. Just get the roms and emulators.

    Street Fighter Anniversary is still a good addition though. SF3 won't run on xbox mame

    Why are you asking about resi? There aren't any resi games on the xbox.

    From the post above meh about MG2...only ever played MG1 on PC I found MG2 really hard to get into..the lack of tutorials left me clueless, although it seemed like a game with depths..

    But these are the games that I can remember being good:
    Knights of the Old Republic
    Chronicles of Riddick
    Jade Empire
    Fight Night Round 3
    Project Gotham Racing 2 i think
