Lightbulb 360 = Oblivion

If you have a 360 you should get Oblivion, it's the only game on the console worth having right now
You should get Kameo, it has the best graphics on the 360 at the moment!

Do you like DOA 4?

You've made a good choice Soma

I recommend:

Kameo - Fun platformer with gorgeous graphics!
Oblivion - if you like RPGs
Call of Duty 2 - Excellent WW2 shooter

If you are on Xbox Live you can download numerous demos from the marketplace. You can sign up for free silver membership.

You may also wanna try King Kong and Tomb Raider Legend if you can pick them up cheap (if only to experience the better graphics).


Within the next few months you can look forward to Saint's Row, Gears of war, Mass Effect, Smackdown and many more!

Also, don't forget you can find demos of a lot of games on Xbox Live (you only need the free membership that comes with the system to download demos and game videos).

I'd thought about Oblivion, but I didn't like the original Morrowind, so I don't think I'd like it...and Legend...wasn't good enough to buy again IMO...what about PDZ?

A lot of people didn't like Morrowind, yet like Oblivion. It's quite a bit improved.

I didn't like Oblivion. Too 'hardcore RPG' for my tastes.

PDZ has got mixed reviews. Check out the review on Gamespot and IGN and make up your opinion

I rented PDZ and I didn't like it

It's like Halo but you can roll around in the third person and thats about it.
The graphics are uber shiny too, with the odd rough patch here and there
If you like Halo you might like PDZ but if you just go into it with low expectations then you may be surprized

Oblivion is brilliant! You have this huge world to explore, freedom at it's best!
I was alittle shocked at first actually, I had no idea the game COMPLETELY free-form but it's great because you go where-ever you want to and do what you like. The storys not so good, but it's the exploration and adventure aspect that most people have bought the game for anyway
The graphics are good but when your exploring the world there's alot and I really do mean ALOT of pop-up, everything from grass to rocks to houses and even trees just magicaly appear from no-where, it's really quite sad because the rest of the game looks great
Still it's a must have game

Edit:
I see you liked DoA, Kasumi and Ryu are my favourites!
Some people say it's too hard, what do you think?

I love DOA 4 so far, though I've never played a DOA before so it's hard for me, but I'm getting better...the graphics are amazing, even though the storylines make NO sense at all haha...its fun though.

As for Oblivion, has the fighting system changed? That's the reason I hated the first one so much...the fighting was hard and too spastic with the swinging and all...
