Family Guy:, what's not to like, it's Family Guy true and true, I have this on the xbox360 aswell, but this is the better version in my opinion

Different games though.

sure thing, I thought the xbox360 game was so repetitive and gave us after about 2hrs of playing it, but never tired of the original xbox version, why I think personally its a better game, but who am I to argue, they are both good in there own rights.

FG is another I should have played, I have a feeling the Futurama game is also pretty good.

Project:Snowblind is proving to be quite the gem, lovely pseudo Deus Ex mechanics such as hacking and body enhancements, nice graphics and sound. Oh and of course a suitably cheesily acted story lol

Ditto, these were superb another one which didn't seem to get spot-lighted was Still life from Microids you play a female detective trying to unravel a series of brutal murders in 2004 being committed by a serial killer, but what makes the brilliant is her father was a detective in the 1920's on similar cases and has the player switching between both timelines to unravel the murders, actually years ahead of its time.

I would highly recommend this.

As a big Sega fan Laird, it is well worth owning. Sega did some outstanding stuff on it.

That concept is highly familiar, I'm sure its something thats been repeated in a film or TV series, maybe the writer played this game first!

Seen this  and I do like MJR's choices normally, he's got another good list here.

Yager, SW:Republic Comando and Crimson Skies are the only ones I have played of those, and yes they are all great!

I bought Yager and CrimsonSkies recently, then found out my damn disc drive has given up lol I'll have to dig out my old instructions for FTP from my PC as I do have original discs now :113:
