5-0 out of 5 stars DDR is AWESOME
This DDR game is great!!! I got it at Christmas and play it about 3 hours a night. It is much more fun than aerobics and is VERY ADDICTING!!! If you need to lose weight, this is the thing to get!!! However, with that said, you must have a good pad to use the game. The cheap flimsy pads move around on the floor and the cheap hard pads will end up breaking eventually. I would suggest buying a cheap pad to see if you like it. But, as soon as you know you are addicted, spend the extra cash and get a good pad. You can find the metal pads on ebay for around $150 and if you are crafty... there are sites that show you how to build your own that is as durable as the arcade version. I've had friends stop by and make silly remarks about me playing a dance game. But, as soon as they try it, they can't stop! If you have xbox live, you can play it online. But...be forewarned, the guys playing online are usually very good.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's a revolution!... but cost quells it down
Pros: 1. Man, this is addicting

2. Xbox Live enabled (for even more fun)

3. play and burn calories! (just what the doctor ordered for me!)

4. good fire-up tunes!

Cons: 1. Not much separating it from the PS2 Editions

2. Steep learning curve (may take weeks to barely pass some of the songs if you do not have good hand eye coordination)

3. Other family members will want on it so you will have less time for DDR and other Xbox games.

4. Very expensive ($40 for the game, but dance pads range from $30 for a pad [think the kind of pad that you get in twister], $110 for a stronger pad [what I have] but may break down from overuse [I recommend that you get a warranty for the pad], and an over $500 one for you hardcore fans, but it's only available online and shipping costs are a burden [over 30 lbs.])

Final Verdict: Deserves being bought for the Xbox Live enability alone, but if you are on a budget, don't even bother without getting hit with a hefty cost.

5-0 out of 5 stars DDR for all
This game is wonderful. Put very simply, it is a great party game, a great one player game, and a game even your girlfriend will actually play with you. Having a bunch of friends over to play it is fun and hiliarous to watch, playing by yourself is just as addictive, and now that I bought the game and a couple of dance pads, my girlfriend actually enjoys whipping out the Xbox instead of moaning with boredom. Pick it up if you have the cash!

4-0 out of 5 stars Play it once and get Addicted!!!
I dont have this game :-( i want it i played it once at an arcade store and Man I am 11 and i beat about 20 teenagers it was easy!!!! This game is 1000 times better that American Idol the game (believe me it sucks check ratings at gamespot and Britheys dance it sucks too) Anyway this game is greeeat!!! If you like music and Dancing get this game!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best game 4 XBOX out there
This is the best game, no questions asked. When u play it, it's addiceting. I've had it 4 one month and right after skool I'm in my basement playin it. At first, it's hard, but when u get used 2 it u will be in love, garentied. 4 first timers I'd recomend the song "ON THE JAZZ," By Johny Dynimite. DDR is addecting so have fun and remember to eat and pee inbetween songs. LOL. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
I played my first Harry Potter game on the dreaded Playstation One console when it first came out and at the time I was impressed with the game concept, the graphics, and the overall play of the game. When Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets came out I had the Xbox and I was able to enjoy the boost in graphics, music, and overall game play. Just recently the first game came out on Xbox, and I decided to buy it. To my surprise it was nothing like the original Playstation One game that I remember. So I played it with great enthusiasm. I now await the third game. I have higher expectations than someone new to the game, but I am expecting the same quality of the other games as well as an increase of play and graphics quality. An EA game usually does not disappoint.

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is going to be bloody brilliant
I have played both of the versions of the Sorcerors Stone and the Chamber Of Secrets and all three are my favorite games. I thought this game would probably have the same layout different storyline but I was amazed when I read about the new features. This game is going to be bloody brilliant. I've heard about the new feature where you get to be Ron or Hermione also, but come on I will and always will be Harry cause it is his tale and his game. But I'm just wonderin if there will be Co-op. XBOX bloody rocks!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best game ever!!!!
This is the most amazing Xbox game ever!!! I just got it yesterday and I beat it in 1 day!!! I couldnt stop!!!

Things that make this game so great...

1. Exploring Hogwarts Grounds and flying on Buckbeak! Also their are 3 different seasons...fall with rain...Winter with beutiful snow and great winter music...and spring! The grounds are huge! Its amazing! You can even run around the two courtyards from the movies! On buckbeak, you can take off, and land anywhere on the grounds!

2. Being Harry Ron and Hermione!

3. The graphics are amazing, much better then the first two games! Harry Ron and Hermione dont look stupid like they did in the first 2 games!

4. The music is great...the same great music from the first 2 plus new great music!

OK...their are many more great things about this game that I could be here all day...get this game! Dont even think about it just get it...you will thank me!

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm a big Harry Potter fan, I've read all the books, I have the 2nd gaem on the PC, and I have the 3rd HP game for XBox. One bad thing.......I don't have my Xbox yet!! IT is killing me cause I got ot play it just a little bit and I want to play it some more. The graphics are unbelievable. The spells, game-play, graphics, and depth have all improved. It is so incredibly awesome. Buy it now!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is gonna be cool
I have heard of this game and i thought i might get it. I have played the last two games and thought they were brilliant. I like all my games for Xbox because it's just plain better. Gamecube is ok, but it doesn't have as good graphics. Playstation 2 sucks. Almost all PS2 games suck. I have seen the movie and thought it was the best one, so i figure this is gonna be the best game. I like the book also, but i think the Goblet of Fire game and movie will be better. But until then, this is the best one. ( I still can't believe you cant play Quiditch, but i have the World Cup, so i'm not too worried about it, it's not like people buy the game just to play Quiditch) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars New way to have fun in shooting!
Well this game is something i did not think it was. BUT GUESS WHAT it is even better. This game cannot be compared to halo half-life whatever. It is like squad controll kind of thing. you tell your teams to do stuff. Easy to pick up controls that seem very complicated but you learn to mix and combo them in lots of different ways. plenty of tactics can be applied alos it has good ai the game overall feels like your there because of its details and graphics. Very realistic and thought out i actualy had that green of satisfaction each time i managed to take out a ton of enemysso pleasing i swear!!!
I cant tell you about coop cause i got not xbox live but it is still fun. There are some things imperfect because there are so many things to push you might make a wrong button push but its still cool. And i realy hate that this is IRAQ i am sort of tired of that theme but hay it dosenot make the game bad in any way.
Buy and enjopy its fun for all patient and impatient players. (...)

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome GAME!!
I just got FSW today from Hays Hastings. I reserved my copy today and picked it up today. This game has spectacular graphics and even better gameplay! I get pinned down a lot, but that's where you use both Alpha and Bravo teams together to flank the enemey. I kill about five baddies for every time I get one of my guys shot up. It is kinda tough and quite addicting. I'd buy this again in a New York SECOND!! I highly recommend this game.

Now, it is true that you yourself cannot shoot the guns. You control your team's movements and they'll automatically and accurately, I might add, start firing back. I can actually get a bad guy to concentrate on one team, then my other team will sneak up on him and shoot him. So stealth is a possibility in this game, but is difficult to accomplish.

The controls are slicker than snot, but since there are dozens of different commands to order out, it does take some practice. But that's where you go to the manual for easy access.

You start the game off in training. You cover everything from throwing grenades, moving, tactics, and shooting. Then you move off into the actual game. The training takes about an hour to an hour and a half, but you can take as long as you want.

I finally figured out WHY the game does not allow you to take control of vehicles. This game is a simulator for the Army's infantry. The infantry does not use vehicles in their task forces. DUH!

2-0 out of 5 stars not what i expected
ok you see this game looks ok so you spend the money to buy it. thats where you probably will go wrong besides the fact that you cant even shot yourself the training excerises are a pain and the missions are outrageously diffucult. i thought this was supposed to be much better game but the controls are annoying the loading screen is very annoying and you have to do everything by the book no going off and having fun.

3-0 out of 5 stars Close but not perfect
Full Spectrum Warrior is the closest thing to a simulation of a real mid intensity urban battle that I have ever seen, but there a few annoying diffrences. First of all no smart soldiers would ever stay that close to each other. Thats just askin to catch a grenade. It would have been better if the teams had been able to spread out and engage the enemy like you really should. The thing that really annoyed me the most about the game is some of the dialog. Alot of it is really funny, but when you are fighting and getting shot at no one says some of that stuff. And no one says Hooah like that. I hate that

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a very realistic game!
First things first, if you like run around and shoot with no regards to dying, DO NOT GET THIS GAME. I spent 8 months in Iraq from the beginning of the war with the 101st. I think this is as realistic as a game can get without confusing civilians on tactical warfighting. Its great to see a game come out that mimics they way the US Army light infantry fights! It does get repetitive I will admit, but guess what thats how the fighting force that protects this country trains.

Anyways if this game isn't exiting enough for you, throw 100 plus lbs of gear on, run around the room, and have your buddy shoot at you, actually that would make it a little more realistic.

To sum this up in order to win here you have to shoot, move, and communicate. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Legend
If you're reading this, you fall into one of two camps; those who love Metal Slug 3, and those who haven't played it.

If you belong to group 1, buy it. You know the drill regarding Metal Slug, and if you didn't already import the PS2 release, here's your chance to grab it for less money. In addition, you're supporting SNK's stateside buisness, and that's always a good thing. C'mon. It's SNK, for God's sake.

If you belong to group 2, then sit back and let me see how much of this game's history I can pack into 1,000 words.

Despite the name, Metal Slug has nothing to do with the animal, or even really the type of ammunition, which you'd think would make sense. Back in the arcade days of 1996, a group of laid-off Irem staffers (the company responsible for the immortal R-Type) got together and kicked out a game by the name of Metal Slug for the Neo Geo MVS/AES system. The concept was the same as any basic Contra-style shooter. You moved from left to right on the screen, jumping on platforms and shooting anything that shot back at you.

Like R-Type, Metal Slug had a "gimmick" that set it apart from other, similar shooters, and that was the Metal Slug itself; a cute, almost anthropomorphic mini tank that could jump and crouch. The player could find the Slug in the game's levels and it allowed a huge boost in power. That was really the whole concept.

It's also *not* the defining point of Metal Slug, merely it's namesake. Less memorable than the mechanic of the vehicles was the game's presentation, pacing, and level of fun. See, the thing about Metal Slug was not so much the raw game mechanics as the amount of obvious love that was poured into it. At a time when the Neo Geo was still the undisputed king of 2D graphics, Metal Slug reigned king as a pinnacle of what could be achieved artistically with supposedly "primitive" 2D graphics.

It's a little like the Color vs. Black and White debate with films. There's no denying that color is the way of the future, and it certaintly allows for a comparable amount of artistic expression, but B&W enables certain things that color does not, and a skilled director can make the most of these things in a way that color will never be able to reach. Apply the same argument to 2D vs. 3D, and you get what's so special about Metal Slug. Little touches like the hand-drawn cell animation in every single moving object in the game (and *everything* is animated in some way) allow for a remarkable amount of character, and it shines through in everything from the standing animation of the player's character to the facial reactions of the enemy troops when your character comes back from the dead after you put another quarter into the machine.

Anyway, Metal Slug went through two more arcade versions: Metal Slug 2, and Metal Slug X (basically a revamped version of MS2, which also landed on the Playstation 1 in the U.S., so grab it if you can find it). When Metal Slug 3 came out in 2000, it quickly became apparent that this was the zenith of arcade shooters. If you're a Led Zeppelin fan, here's an easy comparison: Metal Slug 3 is like the game version of Led Zep 4. It's that turning point when the end product becomes aware of it's own mystique and uses that knowledge to take things to a whole new level. Metal Slug 3 is a game that's aware of it's own following, and it manages the rarely accomplished task of giving the fans what they want, and giving them something entirely new at the same time.

Even if you're not familiar with the previous games in the series, Metal Slug 3 still has that aura of a game that's legendary and knows it, and is therefore unafraid to try things that it would have stopped short of in previous installments. This is hard to explain properly in few words without having some kind of visual aide, so you're just going to have to trust me when I say that this game reaches the level of inspired art, and there are several occasions where you'll grin while playing it, and probably mutter to yourself "Oh, man, that's really cool."

Well, okay, here's a "quick" example. The final stage in the game starts out with your character in a flying Slug -- an evolution of the tank from the first game. It then mimicks other spaceship-themed side-scrolling shooters (like R-Type) until you wind up on the ground, where it re-creates the final level from the original Metal Slug. Then, the alien enemies from Metal Slug X make an appearance, capture your character, and abscond back to their mothership. You then get a different character (of the 4 selectable) and, combined with the forces of the soldiers you fought in the first game, get into spaceships and rocket off to go fight the aliens. From there, the game becomes a vertically-scrolling shooter (like Ikaruga) until you finally make it onto the mothership, where it's classic Metal Slug until you finally rescue your originally selected character...And by then, you're about halfway through the level.

See what I mean? It's self-referencing, well constructed, funny as hell, and just all-around amazing.

Also, unlike many other games of this nature, Metal Slug 3 is for the casual and hardcore alike. It's graphics aren't so poor that they'll turn anyone off (in fact, they've held up very well) and the concept is so simple that anyone can pick up and play. The one caveat is that the game is quite hard, but there's selectable difficulty and enough leeway that, even if you can't make it all the way through, there's a good chance one of your buddies can. Expect to spend some time with it, mind you, but it's not so hard that it stops being fun, which is really the most important thing of all.

This is an excellent chance to grab the Holy Grail of 2D games. Don't miss it; you won't regret it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hardcore/old school gamers need apply only
NOTE: For some reason every review on here as of this date says this game is awesome, but since a couple of people don't know how to use a drop down menu next to the "HOW MUCH FUN IS THIS GAME?" section the average rating is like 2.5 stars before this review. I guess before I make fun of the reviewer who criticized people for not posting a rating while not posting one him/herself, my review is four stars ;)

My heading is serious. To the uninitiated, this game will seem to be one of the dumbest looking things to ever surface for any modern day video game system. I should note that the exact opposite is true. This game is a gracious delight to those of us who grew up without 3D games and played 2D side scroller shoot-em 'ups like Contra. Back in the day (1990s) we didn't have any 3D bump mapping, texturing, line drawing distance, polygon count, and the dreaded LOADING screens; this is what video games were all about back then...simple and fun as hell.

GAME DESIGN/CONCEPT: Metal Slug 3 is a sidescroller shooter similar to Contra games of old; there are many weapons that you can get via icons dropped from dead guys, there are TONS of enemies, there are few levels (like five, I think) and you die from one hit (unless against zombies, where you turn into a zombie and then die if hit again). This is a classic gaming concept that has been succesful and will prove to bring back fond memories to those of us who have wasted many hours playing games like this. But I must forewarn those who think that this childish looking "T" rated game with only five levels will be beaten in 20 minutes; this game is friggin' hard.

I can't count how many times the screen is filled with deadly-to-the-touch objects that leave almost no room to move. There is no continuing midlevel, even in co-op mode, so if you lose all your lives, it's back to the beginning of the stage (and that's a real bummer for the longer than life last level). When you first play this game and realize you are getting your [back] kicked left and right, chances are it's not you. This game makes Contra: Shattered Soldier for the PS2 look like "Play with the Teletubbies". You will find yourself constantly playing the levels over and over again to master them, but rest assured that you'll have fun replaying them; besides, that's how we've always beat these kinds of games. If you find yourself somehow getting bored of getting your hindside handed to you, get a buddy and play co-op! This is the most fun I've had playing co-op since Halo, believe it or not. This brought me back to the days of playing these kinds of games in the arcade with a buddy, kicking butt and spending money fast. I really wish there were more games out there with co-op play, and I don't mean the weak co-op like in James Bond: Everything or Nothing, but Brute Force/Halo/Mario Kart Double Dash co-op that detracts from the conglomeration of deathmatch games out there.

This concept may sound like blasphemy to those "game enthusiasts" of today (if you can call them that), by having a game that has you replaying the levels just to get by them and where logic and smarts means nothing to a good-ol' trigger finger that can shoot thirty bullets in five seconds. Believe me though that this game is fun as can be and is a wonderful homage to 2D sidescrollers of the past.

GRAPHICS: If my rating was based on technologically astounding graphics, this game would get a single star. However, video games are meant to be a form of interactive entertainment, not works of aesthetic pleasure to be looked at passively. The graphics look like something from the Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis ages, but that's not a bad thing...the graphics fit the game, and that's all that matters.

MUSIC/SOUND: Again, this review is not based on technical merit. The audio in this game is cheesy as can be, and it perfectly fits the silly nature of the game.

CONTROL: The controls are about as simple as they get; a button to jump, a button to shoot, a button for grenades, and your standard pause. Doesn't get much simpler than that. I could care less that this game doesn't have a ten button sequence to do a running ninja stabbing head decapitation barbeque cookout trolly. The controls are so simple that reading the instructions is not necessary.

OVERALL: This game is great, but an insane difficulty level may be too much for all but the most hardcore gamer (why I docked a star); perhaps more lives than the maximum 5 or perhaps midlevel checkpoints like Contra SS for the PS2 could have helped (I do agree with the choice to rid of mid level continuing). Many video game hobbyists will clearly be turned off by the graphics and sound; to them I say at least rent this game and try to enjoy it. You'll be surprised at how much fun this game is.

Awesome
This is everything I've always wanted. Mindless action with a bit of comedy involved. You get to ride in numerous vehicles called metal slugs (hense the name). There are four characters to chose from, and each slightly unique. The old-School graphics are awesome, and it even has the arcade style setup. You can unlock bonus missions. The multiplayer is very fun with friends. I would buy this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly the old-school thrill we've all been looking for...
"Modern" games have reached, of late, a level of complexity both admirable and dreadful. The obvious effort and attention to detail required to produce such titles is worthy of respect, but also of criticism. Many of the current chic trappings with which newer games are adorned lead only to, or are in themselves, distractions. An involving and complex story line, highly-detailed graphics and sound, elaborate controls and objectives - all of these are positive and rewarding, but also lead to a less visceral, less pure experience. They are, in some measure, less game-like.

As a result, it is a great relief to know that straightforward, old-school games like Metal Slug 3 are still available on mainstream systems.

Metal Slug 3 can be summed up, like the rest of the series, very simply: You shoot stuff. As an essentially traditional shooter, with both side-scrolling and top-down levels, any gamer can jump right in without instruction. Waves of comical enemies assault you in various ways, and you are tasked with eradicating them using a variety of amusing weapons and vehicles, from a basic handgun to a laser, from a camel to a helicopter - it's a time-worn game play concept with which everyone is familiar. However, as it is a traditional shooter, no one can master all the levels easily. As you advance through the levels, or 'Missions' as they're styled in the game, the action becomes faster and more complicated, and more frustrating as well. Unlike many other games, though, it is a pure kind of frustration that only a traditional, over-the-top arcade game can deliver, and it feels satisfying. Never is the player truly discouraged from conquering the game; he is only spurred to improve his coordination and planning until victory, which any dedicated player will inevitably achieve. In this way, Metal Slug 3 is an incredibly rewarding game, never feeling hopeless, but never feeling cheap. The deceptively simple dodge-and-shoot game play is wonderfully fun, always keeping the pace and never getting boring.

Now, by styling Metal Slug as a simpler, no-frills game when compared to other X-Box titles, am I advocating backward evolution? Hardly! Everything Metal Slug does, it excels at. The graphics, while 2D , are beautifully realized. The sprite animations are smooth and detailed, and possessed of their own character and emotion. The weapons each have their own advantages and disadvantages, and their own fun effects, and the game offers plenty of opportunity to mess around with them. The sounds are of a lower quality than you'd expect from a CD-based title, but there's charm in that as well: the game retains 100% of its character in the translation from the Neo Geo arcade system to the X-Box.

Control is simple, there is a primary fire and a secondary fire button, jump, and movement is accomplished with either the left thumb stick or the D-pad. The simplicity of the control, combined with the simplicity of the concept and the ferocity of the action can't be beaten.

A single gripe: X-Box Live wasn't really utilized effectively, which is a shame. The potential for wild four-player Live action is there, but the developers settled for a simple high-score ladder, which is amusing in it's own way, but not what it could have been. This small letdown in no way detracts from the fun quotient of the game, however, it simply represents a missed opportunity for an amusing bonus.

Though a relatively new game by genre standards, Metal Slug 3 is a purebred return to the fast-paced, white-knuckled, high-score obsessed days of arcade craziness that once were, and I couldn't be happier for it. Here's to enthusiastically awaiting 4&5, due out later this year.

2-0 out of 5 stars Boring
Anyone who has played Hitman:Silent Assassin will notice this is the same game. I think they had this one in the bag for 2 years and just waited to release it. Some of the missions are the same as Hitman: Codename 47. The whole game is flashbacks and then finally the last mission continues the plot with little advancement...very dissapointing.

If you can't get enough stealth action or running around killing (dont play this game on normal mode, waste of time) you'll probably dig it. If you want a storyline and some sort of point to it, you're not going to get it. This game is re-hashed european crap. If you want to try Hitman, buy Silent Assassin for $20.

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome game..if you're the right type of gamer
First off, I don't play a ton of video games. My girlfriend's parents got me an XBox as a birthday present a year ago and I have since bought maybe 5 games for it.

Nonetheless, I played this game and I love it. It definitely requires a certain kind of game player, though. You'll need lots of patience as you learn how the system of sneaking around works. I played through all of Hitman 2 before I finally got comfortable with it. I then replayed Hitman 2 to get "Silent Assasin" (the highest rating) on each level.

I rented Hitman:Contracts to see what it was like. It keeps all of the good stuff from Hitman 2, plus fixes a bunch of things. For one, you now walk a lot faster, and even move faster when you "sneak". That's much nicer. The graphics are nearly the same (although Hitman 2 was pretty amazing, so thats not too bad) with a little improvement in the shadows. The levels are also incredible! The first two levels will blow you away with detail and atmosphere...so eerie and gruesome. The game is very satisfying when played "right" if you're patient, but too easy to play the "wrong way".

Okay, now the bad stuff: Too short. I rented it and beat it in about 4 days. I played a lot of hours those 4 days but its probably 15-20 hours of gaming time total. Less choices. You can't pick which weapons you want to take with you on a mission like you could in Hitman 2, until after you beat the game and replay it. Lastly, the overhead map is still real crappy, doesn't label waypoints or provide much helpful detail, but does show unrealistic information like where enemies are, which way they are facing etc.

Still, overall a great game.

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME SILENT ASSASSIN GAME
I loved this game .The best way to play it is to try to get silent assasin on every level.This game is more of a stealth and thinking mans game ,although you can run and gun on some missions.... but thats not why your called "SILENT ASSASSIN" like the first game.This is my 2nd favourite game after Splinter Cell :pandora tomorrow.If your a fan of stealth and cunning ,then get this game.This is more of an adult themed game .I cant wait for the next one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Slow & Boring
I stopped playing this game after finishing the first two levels. I found the play slow and boring and occassionally odd.

The odd: You "sneak" directly in front of enemies and they don't see you -- even if you bump into them.

The slow: You need to "sneak" around a great bit and movement in that fashion is slow.

Boring: You can play it as a straight shoot/slash game, but, it isn't really made for that so it is not very good. As a sneaking game, you need to follow the games procedures (get the pipe, bring it here, blah blah blah) and just following its directions is pretty dull. If you try to do something different, it rates you poorly. For example, on one level I shot my target and one guard in the restroom. No alarm, no one else around, but, I think the game didn't like that because I didn't follow their procedures (I think I was supposed to dress as a waiter and bring the guy food).

Lastly, it allows a set # of saves per level (0-7, I think, depending on difficulty). SInce I like to play for short periods of time, I didn't like having to plan my saves that way.

All in all, I suggest you pass.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than hitman 2
I own hitman 2 on xbox and I just bought hitman contracts and I love it. It doesn't have as many levels as hitman 2, but it is still fun. It has new weapons and better graphics. It also has improved levels. I like the begining sequence. This game is violent and is not for anyone under 16. I hope they come out with hitman 4. Anyway, this is a good game to play.
I have the guide to help me along the way. Buy this game. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything or Nothing? It is has everything.
Everything or Nothing is the newest and most diverse edition to the James Bond video games. Instead of being a first person shooter it's more like Syphon Filter. You lock on to your targets and shoot. You can duck, hide behind objects, use multiple vehicles, rapel onto and off from buildings, knock out opponents without switching weapons, use a wide variety of weapons and gadget, and much more. There are over thirty levels, some of which are vehicle levels. EoN has a multiplayer campaign mode and an arena mode, in which up to four players can face off. This new edition to the James Bond series is both challenging and entertaining. I recomend this game to pretty much anyone. I preffer ninja games and I loved this game.

1-0 out of 5 stars THIS GAME IS THE WORST BOND GAME MADE!!!!
THIS GAMES SUCKS!! You know how in the other bond games your gun is in your face? well this one... it's not. You see the whole guy and so you are used to only the gun in your face and havin' it look like you are actually there, but in this one the camera angles SUCK, you start out with THE DUMBEST weapon and only get about 3 new guns in the first level w/ very low amunition. My friends and I have played EVERY bond game out, have seen ALL the movies and know all there is about Bond. And let me tell ya, this game was a HUGE let down. You can take others advice that have probably played about, maybe, 1 bond game in their entire life, as to me, but DO NOT come home crying when you buy this game and you find out it's DEFINITELY not as good as the others. If you are 'oh so desperate' to play this game, RENT IT! Then you'll see for yourself.<br /> I give it- (not even 1 star... but the computer thingy can't do halves. lol)<br />

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Game
This game was good allround. The Multiplayer fetuer was very good and indepth. It evan had it's own story line wich was cool. Afrter playing this game I went and put in 007 Nightfire and EON blew the fire out of the night. Very good game

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything Or Nothing.
This is the best Bond game so far. Between the gadgets,guns and cars I don't know what I like best about this game. they even use real names of guns unlike other games, i love it how you get the aston martin and the cayenne suv and a motorbike. the controls are simple enough that you can easily pick it up and start playing and after twenty-thirty minutes of high octane playing you have beaten a level or two. Everything Or Nothing is one of those games where some levels are easy but the ones that are hard...are hard but not so hard to where you just can't beat it and try over and over again. this is an incredible game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Prity Darn Good
At first, you may think, why by this game? Well Let me tell you why. First of all, It feels like a bond movie thanks to the talents of Pierce Brosnan, Willem Dafoe, Shannon Elizabeth and verey nice sound, whith the unbelevable music done by MYA. Then, you have first person veiw. Then, Tons and tons of Hi-tec Gadgets. And finaly, Tons of levles. Botom line, get it now! ... Read more

This is the stand-alone expansion to one of the best xbox games of 2003. Most of the original elements have stayed intact while adding new elements such as king of the hill, ctf, and two player split-screen. as far as the story, in the near future an independent general has control of north korea thereby letting you sit on your couch eating fritos and thinking that your all good because you saved someone that doesnt really exist. fine with me. one of the only problems early on is the cost: 40$ for an expansion is a little steep but with the new tweaks, it could be worth it. ...

GTA-Spiderman!!!!!!! IT's REAL!!!!!
This game rules!!!! The 1st one was So-So only b/c u were limited to freedom. I wouldve been happy if this game just fixed up the engine from the old one...but instead they create a brand Spankin new one and it is Soooo kewl. Did you ever wonder what your webs connected to when you swing in the air on the old spiderman games? i did!!!! but now with a new engine you must aim your webs at things to attach to!!!! it sounds hard but its easy to learn. The best part about this game is By far New york city.. ITS HUGE!!!! and you can anywhere unlike on Gta and true crime where your limited to roads. And this Game is tota; free roam!!!!! Spiderman himself loox great in this game and so does doc oc but almost evryone else is dissapointing. Actually im gonna stop typing rite now b/c this game Rules if grandtheft auto and previous spidrman games had sex this would be there baby!!!!!!!!! BUY IT 5 out of 5!!!!! NOW!!!!!! IM gonna go PLay SPIDERMAN 2....the best GAME ever...(tetris not included)

5-0 out of 5 stars You CAN Do WHATEVER A Spider Can!!
I'm sorry, but i don't know what the hell most of you are talking about. This game RULES!!! I'm a HUGE spider man fan (i'm also almost 21 years old.. got a problem? :P) and this game just falt out makes me HAPPY!! I've spent hours on end just swinging around the city, jumping off buildings, saving people, stoping peddy crimes, and learning teh controls. You can go anywhere in the friggin city. You can even latch a web on the a helicopter and fly out to the statue of liberty. The moves are just flat out amazing and the swing system is like no other. this is more of a spider-man simulator then anything. This had to be the polar opisite of the first game!!

5-0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE
this game was spectacular a must buy much better then the first with many improvements anyone who syas its too short needs to stop wasting so much time playing and get a life

2-0 out of 5 stars Way too short - good rental.
I was very excited with all of the hype that this game out of the gate. Even the magazines were praising it. Unfortunately I bought into the hype and purchased the game without renting it first. Do yourself a favor and rent the game, once you get past the learning curve main story line is an easy solve.

After the main storyline it is possible to keep playing to obtain additional hero points, but how many armor car high jackings does one actually want to stop.

5-0 out of 5 stars One word...AMAZING!
I have to say this is one of the greatest games i've ever played. The producers showed a lot of class placing the lights where the twin towers used to be. As a native New Yorker i love this game even more. The controls are easy to learn. Although it can be a bit repetitive at times, you can help but have fun as the web slinger. The best super hero game, the best spiderman game. You simply can't go wrong with this one! BUY IT NOW, you won't regret it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Watch the spooky meter!
My cousin just recently bought this game and we already love it. You play as Miku, a young girl searching for her lost brother in a haunted mansion. Armed only with her inherited sixth sense and antique camera against the ruthless ghost. The story line draws you in from the beginning with its gorgeous graphics and creepy astrosphere. You find yourself jumping and becoming paranoid, always on the look out for another spook that would like to see Miku dead. The only drawbacks are the limited film, save points, and life preserves you find in the game. It's not really a problem just another challenge and a bit frustrating some times. This game is unique and brings some life back into the horror genre games. It's like being in a horror movie yourself. I recommend this game to anyone who likes something new, fun, or just likes to be scared.

4-0 out of 5 stars They weren't kidding, this game IS scary
Some games scare you by surprise (Resident Evil), others by what you can't see (Silent Hill), some games play with your mind (Eternal Darkness) and some games scare you by the fact that its based on a true story...
I know a lot of people don't believe in ghosts, but I have had the misfortune of living in a haunted house twice in my life. My experiences were not pleasant by any means, and so for the first time in my life there's a game that not only scares me, but makes me entirely uncomfortable to the point where I cannot play this game alone. It's not as gory as other games in the genre, but it plays of off my fear of ghosts as being a very real phenomenon very well. It's creepy, its spooky, and many of the ghosts in this game do not go down easily, thus presenting a greater challenge than other Survival Horror games, as its not a simple matter of shooting the ghost before it gets to you, or bashing the fiend to death with a lead pipe... these things are as fast as they are creepy looking, and worse yet... its based on a true story.
Graphically, although enhanced over the PS 2 version this game does not take advantage of the Xbox, as it should have. It does not look good on my Widescreen TV as images look somewhat stretched. Most Xbox games I have make the conversion pretty smoothly, including Taco's Dead or Alive 3,and Extreme Beach Volleyball. Worse yet, although the poly-counts are high, and look really good in some ways the lack of detail in the fingers (and the lack of fingernails) is annoying. Particularly since the character faces look so good. The biggest problem is that some of the in game graphics are grainy, and there is this odd effect that causes some colors to smear and blend poorly, as well as pixilation in some textures. This game looks like a port, and is nowhere near as polished as other horror games ported to Xbox (Silent Hill 2). Despite some enhancements this game could have been improved more in many areas. Never the less leave it to my Widescreen TV to bring out flaws that would most likely not be noticeable on a regular TV.
Sound effects and music in this game are a part of what make this game so terrifying. Creepy, and intense the sound effects deserve a perfect score except... the voice acting in this game is simply ghastly. The voice-overs range from mediocre to poor, which is sadly typical of this genre. Never the less none of the flaws interfere with the truly terrifying experience, or the appeal intrigue of this true story. Just trust me, and don't play this game alone. Even with the lights on its still ultra scary.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wishful thinking
I love the horror survival genre (it is the only reason I play video games). I will start off on the pro side of the game, it has a creepy look and soundtrack and the concept is really good. The con side is that the game controls like crap! The character is not fluid at all. It turned me off the game. I played for about 2 hours and gave up. The controls are that frustrating. If you have patience, get this game, it is a really great story/concept. I will probably do the same thing my friend did when he tried to play the game, turn around and sell it... So I give this 1 star, the controls ruined the whole game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wickedly horrific game. . .
I love this game. It quite simply terrifies me.

I pondered buying it in Blockbuster because it was in the used section and I was looking for a cheap game, but because so many horror games turn out to be flakey I opted to rent it first. After the first ten minutes of gameplay, I did not plan to buy it. In fact, I wanted to stay as far away from it as I could get, it creeped me out so much. But I kept playing, and got so wrapped up in the storyline and cut scenes that I decided to buy it despite the fact that every time I play it, I get achey from being all tensed up.

Although some people have described Fatal Frame's plot as "mediocre," I think it's absolutely fantastic. Here we have a Japanese teenager walking into a dark, isolated mansion in search of her missing brother. Immediately, a ghost shows up. "The ropes," he groans. "There are more ropes. The ropes..." And we open the door into the Rope Room (which is one of the creepiest, in my opinion) and learn later that the ropes swinging from the rafters were being slowly added because the house ghosts had Koji's death in mind. As the story is unraveled, we learn about the evil rituals the Himuro family participated in, and meet Kirie, who is an intriguing "villain." It's strangle proper that when her two selves separate after death and the Calamity comes, it is the child-like half, who understood the necessity of the ritual and her terrible role in it, rather than her adult self who longs to be free, who remains good. I haven't beat the game yet (I am stuck, I think I am going to have to start over, and I am on the third night), but I am still quizzical about the purpose of the gruesome Blinding Ritual, and who it was who takes part in it. Although I pity the Blind Maiden, her ghost is incredible annoying. Every time I hear someone say "My eyes" I cringe. And I like how the storywriters played with the fine line in good in evil - although the Demon Ritual is cruel and horrifying, the player also understands the need for it to be done.

The graphics are also great. Not very interactive, but I never noticed because I was more concerned with other things. I found them very smooth. The controls weren't the best (every time I entered a room I would always turn around automatically and face the wall) but you get used to them. The sounds were FANTABULOUS. More perfect than anything I have ever encountered in videogames or movies. The music seems to come right out of a nightmare - the whole games does, really. It's like the creators knew what your deepest fears looked like and sounded like, and put them onto a game.

BUY THIS GAME. It is hellishly scary. I already have the sequel, and I can't wait to play it too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Definitely Different
"Fatal Frame" was an enjoyable game with mostly solid gameplay mechanics. It's touted as a member of the (insipidly-named) category 'survival horror', but many aspects put me more in mind of an 'adventure' game.
First the controls:
"Fatal Frame" does not use a Resident Evil-style control scheme, instead opting for a camera's POV-based system ala "Metal Gear Solid". I, myself, never had a problem with the old style controls (where up is forward, down is backward, and left/right pivot the character on-screen), but some games (like the aforementioned "Metal Gear") call for freer, faster-paced controls. This was not one of them. Due to the confined spaces in most areas and the fact that this is a horror game, and thus all about atmospheric (and constantly changing) camera placement, the method of moving one's character from place to place was more of a frustration and a distraction from the story than it needed to be. Even more trouble is added to the mix by the fact that the character constantly hangs up on invisible corners while running. When it comes to using the camera (this time referring to the weapon), controls are much smoother. It is easy to access and leave the viewfinder screen, and tracking thankfully can be done in two different speeds. Battling your enemies with only an old camera seemed at first like the gimmicks of most games- the only real novelty, and one that would wear thin after awhile. Fortunately, this was not the case. It never seemed too contrived, and the camera was comfortable to use.
Next the graphics:
I've only played the Xbox version, but I thought the graphics were solid. They're not the best available, nor were they when this game was released, but they're more than up to the requirements of "Fatal Frame". The environment wasn't terribly interactive, even by the standards of so-called 'survival horror' games, especially in the area of lighting. Shadows don't really fall on the character, and lights never move or flicker. Even though the character's flashlight can be manipulated throughout the game, the light it gives off doesn't behave in a realistic (or particularly useful) manner. "Silent Hill 2" was released in its PS2 form around the same time as this game and it displayed impressively realistic lighting effects and behavior.
Finally, the story and atmosphere:
Being a non-believer in all things supernatural, I take the words "based on a true story" with a truckload of salt. After all, the movies "Fire in the Sky", "It Could Happen to You" and "Braveheart" were all 'based on true stories', but the actual facts in each of them boil down to less than 10% of the script. This shouldn't make the game any less frightening. The "Silent Hill" games have been, on the whole, the best games I've ever encountered in 16 years of playing. Period. That verdict includes the admission that each of them (but especially 1 and 2) scared me half to death and kept me on that edge continuously throughout every moment I played, from beginning to end. All this, and there's not a sliver of fact or even testimony behind those stories. But "Fatal Frame" was not scary in the least for very different reasons. After the first ghost encounter in the prologue, you've seen everything the game has to throw at you. There are no dangers other than ghosts, all ghosts will be conquered the same way, and all of them are bright, visible, and predictable in their methods of attack. Combat felt more like a one-on-one fighter than a horror game. I never felt surprised or nervous at any point during gameplay because of this. Second, as mentioned above, the lighting does nothing to build mood. Everything is wide open and completely visible, so you always know when there's something awaiting you. Lastly, the premise itself just isn't particularly scary. This is where the story fits in. By the time you are halfway throught the 'First Night' (each night is, very roughly, 1/4 of the game) you know everything. Of course, more details will be filled in, but the backbone of the story and most of the reasons for the haunting are revealed very early. Without any sense of mystery, there is no incentive to immerse oneself in the world of the game.
In sum, "Fatal Frame" is fun as an adventure game with good presentation, but with surprisingly weak story elements. It's definitely enjoyable while it lasts, and the gimmick of camera-as-weapon never wears itself out. However, as a horror title it is largely ineffective. "Fatal Frame" is never corny or farcical- it's simply too light on suspense. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not for everyone.
Yu Gi Oh finally comes to X-box with this game, and it is a mixed game. Don't expect a game with a story like Forbidden Memories or Falsebound Kingdom, this is mainly just a sim of the card game with the anime characters as your opponents. It has a few negative qualities, which I will list below.

Opponents AI can be a little lopsided. Sometimes they will be stupid, or very smart. Expect to lose quite a few times until you finally get some decent cards.

Getting cards isn't hard, but winning ones that can help you improve your deck isn't easy.

Graphics are decent, but not the best X-box can do.

However, these can be easily dismissed if your looking for a game that is true to the official card games rules. This game follows them almost exactly, and the fact that you get Dark Sage, Widespread Ruin, and the God Card Winged Dragon of Ra as the promo cards is a definate plus. Some might be turned off because of no story, but that is easily overlooked. Try it before you buy it if you're unsure, but it should be a buy for any Yugi fan with an X-box.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dawn of Destiny
I purchased the game without knowing about the 3 cards that came with the game. I knew it had 3, but the last thing I had expected was to see them being Widespread Ruin, Dark Sage and the Egyptian God Monster card, "The Winged Dragon of Ra

The 2 hottest cards being the God card and Dark Sage in the Japanese version are now in English.

The game play is also very good too. I loved the fact that it follows tournament rules.

This is the game to get for the XBOX and especially if you are a Yu-Gi-Oh! fanatic like I am.

What the heck was konami thinking?!?!?!
this game was a huge disapointment, I got it thinking that i could enter my own cards, the gameplay would be similar to the real life metagame, the battles between monsters would have xbox worthy graphics, and the storyline would be deep, descriptive, and understandable. You just play against people that you choose from a toolbar. they dond even give you good cards to start out with, they expect you to beat people that have these semi complicated strategies, with crappy worthless cards like "Wretched ghost in the attic" The only good card i got was tri horned dragon. you dont even have any cards in your trunk at first. its likeyour character opened 5 packs of LOB, and then went off to challenge Yugi.

dont buy this game. however it can be a little fun if you want to duel and there is nobody around.

3-0 out of 5 stars Definetly Could have been better...
This game is kind of a disappointment. The visuals on the game are alright. Nothing spectacular. They get boring after a while. It seems like they just rushed this game out, since there was nothing out on the XBOX. They could have spent the time to make a game that utilizes the power of the console, but instead put out a game that had much more potential. They diin't make it XBOX live compatible. But that doesn't mean you can't play it online. If you have high speed internet, you can download tunnel software, such as XBox Connect or Xlink Kai. With these programs you can duel other duelists around the world. Not as good as Xbox live, but at least it is free. So over all this game could be better, but since i only payed 15 dollars for it. I guess i can't hate all that much on it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Where to begin
The game box advertises over 1,000 cards. The total is 1017. Considering the number of real cards in the real game, this is squat. What makes it worse is that at least half of the cards included in the video game are some of the worst that are found in the real game. This already makes the early duels boring beyond belief. There are plenty of characters to duel against, but it never appears as if you're actually dueling them. All you ever see of the characters is a portrait and a little dialogue blurb at the beginning and end of each duel. For an Xbox game, there isn't much in the way of graphics. Speaking of which, many were anxious to play this game because of the battles in the duels. They are not battles. The monsters stand on opposing sides in the same pose despite the card's position on the field. Then one of the monsters gets one of less than ten different animations spread over it and either disappears or remains on the screen. This style of gameplay would probably only appeal to gamers on the run who would be better off buying a GBA title and playing a duel while waiting for the bus. An Xbox title should be so much more than this game ever set out to be. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality
I don't know what this game is like for the other two platforms, but on Xbox, it's a tad confusing. The game gets away with this by giving you control of three characters at once and dividing the characters up into four different teams--Team Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose, and Team Chaotix. Each team member has his or her own strengths, and your abilities as a team change depending on which character you have set as the team leader. The inclusion of the four different teams, however, seems a bit pointless since the game is virtually identical for all four of the teams, save for some different story elements in between levels. To be blunt, no one cares about these peripheral characters that Sonic Team seems hell-bent on pushing on gamers. People play Sonic games to play as Sonic the Hedgehog.
Unfortunately, the game suffers from a problematic, finicky camera, occasionally spastic controls, and some bad clipping. The level designs are pretty straightforward, though you'll occasionally find portions that aren't entirely intuitive. Moreover, it's likely that you'll find yourself plummeting into a bottomless nothing without any idea of what you did wrong more than once. This is a rental, for sure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional platform quality
Sonic heroes is a graceful and excellent attempt at combining adventure, speed, exploration, and it cleverly destroys repetition in the process.

The game's base is simple. You can take control of 4 teams, team sonic, team dark, team rose, and team chaotix. This is where the game truly shines, the 4 different teams give sonic heroes a sense of replayability unlike any game before it. Games like jak and Daxter, Super mario sunshine, and voodoo vince really don't have anything on this game in terms of replayabality.

However, instead of stopping there, sonic team decided to make the levels truly brilliant. The levels are different, vigrant and alive. THe fact that this is a non stop thrill ride through picure perfect levels completely rocks.

It is sad, though, that the minor problems from this game garnered bad reviews from bigger magazines and .coms. For instance, falling through levels is a bad glitch in the game. It will piss you off, the targeting system also goes wacko alot of the time. 90% of the time this isn't a problem but be noted, this isn't a perfect bugless title.

Anything else that sucks? Ya, the voices, nolstalgia for kids and fans of the show but another degrading element.

DO the bugs and the voices make this a bad game? No, the multiple gameplay styles and awesome experience shouldn't be left out. If you buy one game this year it should be this one, it really hits gold.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sonic Heroes
This game would be so much more fun if it was not so fast paced. The game basically does everything for you unless you have to knock through a wall. The levels don't get harder or anything, it's not like Mario where you can just keep going until you win, you choose from four different tracks and that's all your options. I wouldn't get this game.

OMG its Greattttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When buying an Xbox it came with a demo and i played it over and over. It had gorgeous layouts and backgrounds. I think that it is fun for any age even my 6 yrs old brother can play it. I personallly give it a 2 thumbs up!

3-0 out of 5 stars Sonic Got Some Heroes
Sonic Heroes may disappoint some people. It's filled with glitches on all three platforms. The camera is still bad like in the previous sonic games. It's still a solid game though. The only real problem I had with it was the annoying character voices. Tails and Charmy the Bee got on my nerves. You'll hear alot of lines repeated over and over too. The gameplay is alot more fun than Sonic Adventure 2. It's worth a rental, or if your a big Sonic fan you'll like it. ... Read more

AWESOME GAME
MX Unleashed is an awesome game evan if you don't like dirt bikes. It's cool beacause it has a big round of real dirt bikes and gear. It has awesome graphics and good sound effects. All of it looks pritty real besides when you fall.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love that sound
MX Unleashed for the XBOX system is one of the best motorcross games out there. The game is a bit more arcadey than a simulation, there is very little realism, but there is a whole lot of fun. Your motorcycle's physics are floaty and they were purposely made this way, so that your jumps are very high and last longer in mid-air. This is important in gameplay mechanics because you are allowed to make stunts while in mid-air (kinda like Tony Hawk on a motorcycle.) You can pick an assortment of characters, lots of different dirt bikes and race tracks. Using the same format of, "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater", you unlock more maps when you accomplish certain tasks in a level. There is an easy-to-use Level Editor, included so you can create your own stunt arenas. They even included a mode called "Human Dart", which is a nice mini game. There is also Free-ride where you can do whatever you want/no rules (free-form gameplay).

Pros:
+free-form gameplay
+excellent graphics
+excellent controls
+excellent sound effects
+excellent stunt system
+excellent frame-rate
+excellent level editor
+motion-blur effects
+fun missions/tasks
+fun mini games
+lots of bikes/options
+large maps
+rag-doll physics
+floaty physics

Cons:
-all race tracks locked at first
-tutorial not very helpful
-trashy rock music

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game!
Why are you reading this....Go get and play the game. It is awesome. Very fun. You can free ride, race, and even freestyle. It has it all. Even has a feature to help you pick the best line for the fastest lap times. The one thing this game needed was a replay ability. I have done some amazing tricks I wanted to see again and replay would have been cool. This game is a must if you are into MX at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Badass game
Well, i think that mx unleashed is a bad ass game.I think it is cool because you get to use monSter trucks,dune buggys,airplanes,trophy trucks,and even helicopters!The way to get all this machines is to play it on career mode.Or you can buy the machine with the money that you have earned.You get your money by beating the levels and races.One of the codes that I know is for the 50cc which is SQUIRRELDOG.The 50cc is a little motercycle.Here are some tips:to do a backflip hit up and down before you get of the ramp.Also to beat the machines stay on the rode,it is ok to get off sometimes.Oh ya,you get to create your own player. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game but not perfect
Overall I really enjoyed Thief 3 Deadly Shadows for Xbox. This is a game focused on stealth. It is not a game were you have the option of stealth but if you get caught you can take on an army of enemies. You'll be seeing most of the enemies from the back as you sneak up on them and blackjack em.

Great graphics and lighting the character models are very well done. The lighting is a huge part of the game since you'll focused on moving from shadow to shadow to stay hidden. The option to change from 1st person to 3rd is a useful choice to have. Unfortunately the city and most of the environments felt pretty underwelming in size and even though it was nice to have the freedom to wander around in between missions there really wasn't much to do in the different areas of the town.

The music and sound effects in the game are well composed and very subtle. Most of the sound in the game is closer to ambient effects than real music. In some the creepier sections in the game the sound effects works really well in raising the fear factor.

The enemy AI is some of the best I've seen. Enemies will do a good job of investigating disturbances. And on higher difficulty setting they will notice if you take loot and if you put out torchs. I wish they were a little more aware of your character when your light crystal is totally dark. Since you become pretty much invisible unless you bump into them.

The story is good but not great. The story could have used been longer and used some more twists and surprises but its interesting. The cut scenes that are shown throughout the game to move the story along are very well done and non traditional. They make good use of the lighting the voice acting throughout these sequences and the rest of the game is of very good quality.

Thief 3 overall is definalty worth picking up if your patient and in the mood for a stealth based game. It also has one of the best stages I've played in any game for a long time. Its called Shalebridge Cradle and you'll know what I'm talking about when you get there. I'd play the game just for the Shalebridge stage so you won't be disappointed if you pick up Thief Deadly Shadows.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe ANY negative reviews of this game
The thief series is my favorite game series of all time. I played all previous versions and was leary about buying this on a video game format because I thought (mistakenly) it would lose a lot of the quality of both the graphics and the game play. I couldn't have been more wrong. I also made the mistake of checking out the reviews before I bought it and was discouraged by some of them. This game is the BEST thief yet. For those of you who follow the series, it is great that they used all the same sound effects, are still following the plotline (pagans versus hammerites, the keepers responsible for thwarting the advent of the coming dark age), and even Garrett's voice is exactly the same. The stealth gameplay is exactly the same with some added features, including dynamic shadows, smarter guards, and some extra moves. The graphics are just as detailed, if not better! Also, you are able to move more freely and quickly with the video game format than you can on pc. One negative review mentioned frequent segments that require some load time (for example, if you are in one part of a house and attempt to enter another part of the same house, you may need to wait a few seconds while it loads). I wasn't bothered by this AT ALL as it only took a few seconds. It didn't take away from the momentum in the least. I'm not sure if the pc version takes longer to load than the video game. I really can't say enough, and I am thrilled with this game and feel it was well worth the wait. The ONLY thing that bothered me is I wanted to play the pc version too but didn't realize until after I bought it the box says "NOT SUPPORTED ON LAPTOPS" and I have a brand new laptop that exceeded by FAR the system requirements, but it still didn't work. I'll just have to play that one on my pc at home.
BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's the BOMB!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece among many stealth clones
Most people, I have noted, who have not played this game ALL the way through, usually give this game bad marks. The story here is far superior to anything on the market (yes, Percy, that includes Splinter Cell and Syphon Filter... BOTH of which were released way after the first game in the Thief franchise.
Garrett is easily the most endearing character in this game, and voice actor Stephen Russel absolutely shines as our aloof, embittered mercenary.
The sound is absolutely phenomenal, and one reason ANYONE should play this is because this game contains one of the top three levels EVER MADE in a video game, unfortunately, this level (The Shalebridge Cradle) is near the end, and the impatient and Attention-Defecite Afflicted (Again, like Percy) may be too frustrated by not seeing blood and flying heads to continue that long. This level is a masterpiece, as is the game as a whole. It is the most realistic simulation of what true medieval thievery would be like... but don't expect a huge body count... after all, you're a thief, not Rambo.

All in all, an absolute epic that you will be tempted to play at least twice.

5-0 out of 5 stars GOOD GAMES
its great game if u have patience if ur an idiot like that percy fag who relates every thing to splinter cell if ur smart and intelligent u can beat this game. SO BUY IT ITS GREAT

2-0 out of 5 stars Ummm.....Sombody smell Tom Clancy, in this???
Theif:Deadly Shadows by Eidos did not surprise in most of the gaming experiance. Overall this game lacked details and details of information that just didn't fit xbox standard.
#1.Beautiful Graphics......hmmmmm reminds me alot about Splinter Cell......
#2.Gameplay: sucks 95.6% of the time
#3. Did the game copy Ubi or somthing? I swear I saw a stealth meter.....it's a stealth game, "Stealthy" tactics....... weapons.....geez....feels no different than splinter cell.
#4. To get to my point.
Your a character called Garret who assumably is supposed to be undercover, or to make this game better than it is...... "stealthy", however there are a couple of problems with it other than the ones listed....the levels are to damn big. In almost every level too, literally (with no online help, strat guides nothing) have to look around the whole town and slums.........wow! that sure is fun! just to get to a simple objective that you could have done easily in GTA Vice City.....but lets not go there. So #5 levels to big to manuever through. Lastly I have to say the gameplay was so boring.....you wait longer than you have to in Splinter, (aside to the fact that Splinter Cell 1, and 2 are actually worth playing!!!!!) The weapons are not fun....i mean come on, a friggin wood club?????? Good weapon for a theif eidos.....The dialouge between the npc's are so dole that you just want to slap yourself for no reason.. Please I prefer you stealth gamers or whatevr you are, to go with Tom Clancy games, or if you want to try somthing new, don't waste your money on a game on this, buying, or renting. Thanks for your time....P.S. the only good thing about this game is the sound/graphics, forget the rest, its a bunch of crap. ... Read more
