All Xbox 360 games reviewed

Matt Slagle suffers for the cause of gaming:

If you’ve scored an Xbox 360, some actual games are going to be the next logical purchase — unless you auctioned it off for thousands of dollars on eBay.

We’ve worn our fingers to the bone the past few weeks (just for you) playing through the 18 titles available when the system launched. While the offering is diverse, many of the games are merely visually tweaked versions from the older consoles. Worse, Xbox 360 games can cost a whopping $60 — roughly $10 more than games for older systems.

Here’s our take, from best to worst.

Hit the link for the details, but the top 5 are:

  1. Call of Duty 2 – “it ran smoother on the $400 console than it did on my $2,500 gaming PC”
  2. Condemned: Criminal Origins
  3. Kameo: Elements of Power
  4. Perfect Dark Zero
  5. Project Gotham Racing 3, Need For Speed Most Wanted, and Ridge Racer 6

and the worst is:

This is the first review I have seen of “Condemned: Criminal Origins”:

“Condemned: Criminal Origins” (Rated M, $59.99) This unique, thrilling action title shows the true power of Xbox 360 with some incredible, groundbreaking graphics. As FBI investigator Agent Thomas, you spend most of your time cautiously creeping through dank, abandoned subway terminals and other unsavory buildings filled with urban decay and murderous sociopaths who like to lunge at you from dark corners.

Yikes! Reviewing all the games is a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
