  • Good Older, Cheaper X-Box Games

    Ok, since I got a new X-Box and a damned fine college football game, I was wonder what are some good X-Box finds, which I can find cheap because they are old (or used)? I already got Halo for the PC, so that is out .

    Oh, and for 'cheap' I consider less than $30.

        Beyond Good & Evil is a month old but already $19.99 due to poor sales. It got great reviews, though, might wanna check that out.

        Also of interest is the Platinum Hits series, all $19.99: http://www.xbox.com/en-us/platinumhits/default.htm

        I would recommend games to you, but I'm honestly surprised you bought the Xbox because I don't think you like console games.

          why not just go into the local eb, check out the used games and then look them up on gamespot or ask here?

          I would reccommend SSX Trickey. A great snowboarding game that shockingly enough, my wife likes to play. I think its on all the systems (I have on ps2)

                Beyond Good and Evil got it's price reduction I think because the game is glitchy. My roommate thought it was pretty fun, but it broke a few times and the story was dumb. I'd rent that one.

                You want good Xbox games.

                  Only $19.99! I really wanted to play that! I may just get it . Even if it is glitchy, maybe I'll take my chances .

                  why not just go into the local eb, check out the used games and then look them up on gamespot or ask here?


                  'Cause. There are a LOT of used games there . And Gamespot is good for the big ticket games, but I'm looking for some hidden gems or something as well.

                  Then why'd you get an X-Box?

                  Actually it begins with a N. As in 'NCAA Football 2004'. Put it to you this way. If they released that for PC, I may not have an X-Box in my TV stand today. It was a matter of justifying the price because I figured, Hell, there are some other good games for it .

                  He plays Halo on the PC.


                  Yep . Though if Halo 2 never makes it there, I can at least try it out (though the levels design better be better!)

                  Thanks Asher and BustaMike. I'll check 'em out. Maybe head down to the Blockbuster one of these days and rent some to see how I like 'em.

                    I'm told from friends that the CUbe version of BG&E is great; presumably the same would be true of the XBox version.

                    Hitman 2 is about 20 dollars, and that was pretty good, although I only played a few levels. It's on PC as well, though.

                    Therefore this is not a syllogism.

                      Hitman 2 depends on how you play it.
                      If you try for "silent assassin" on professional it is incredibly hard, yet rewarding, but if you rip through the game as a first person shooter it is incredibly unrewarding.
                      My friend played it that way , took it back the next day and has since taken the pish out of me everyday, saying that it was the easiest shooter game he has ever played.
                      It is one of those games that you have to really "buy into" the underlying concept of.

                        Isn't Panzer Dragoon Orta on xbox? If it is, and you can find it, I recommend it.

                          If you like or are interested in European Football(the round ball type), then the 'Championship Manager' games are one of the most indepth strat/management games on the xbox.
                          You can pick up one of the older seasons 2001/2002 etc very cheap now.

                          Still if thats your thing the PC versions offer more depth/adaptability, and a whole community dedicated to the games.

                          I saw 'Rocky' in my local store in the used/secondhand basket for 18, its a great mp game and the single player is fun too(My girlfriend kicks my ass at it ).
