The already classic first person shooter offers a great story (albeit short) surrounded by highly developed graphics that proved what the XBox 360 was capable of.

Notorious for all the wrong reasons Grand Theft Auto still offers a fun and enjoyable ride and this one is arguably the better entry of the existing three (at least until IV comes out). Funky eighties music, pushed back sleeves and pale jackets rule the day in this crime caper.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
If ever a game of recent times was notable for generating quite considerable hype and anticipation, then Grand Theft Auto 3 was it. The move into 3D for the already popular 'crime simulator' was bound to cause a stir amongst its fanbase. More importantly, so was the fact that this was its first ..read more »
Before the 300 marched off to war and put Sparta on the map (so to say) Kratos was already smashing Hydra heads together and going up against the gods themselves. Though the graphics are starting to show their age the gameplay is intensely addictive and the story one worth sticking with.
God of War
It's hard to think of many games that take their inspiration from the myths, legends and history of ancient Greece. The superb RPG/action platformer Actraiser on the SNES springs to mind, but that really is about it. The Spartan warriors of ancient Greece are due to make appearances in no less than ..read more »

This is the game that could make you buy the Wii if you didn't already have one, and remind you if you do why it's such an excellent machine. The first game to really utilise the remote and nunchucks in battle, the controls take some getting used to but eventually feel utterly natural. Also an excellent introduction to the games of Zelda if you've never tried them before.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
In the beginning, god(s) created a bunch of stuff, and people. Eventually one of those people created the NES, and it was good. Then, Shigeru Miyamoto and co. created The Legend of Zelda, and suddenly it was even better! Now, nearly 20 years later the latest instalment in the seminal franchise ..read more »
