My XboX 360 Games
XboX 360 : Kinect
35 8.3 01. Dance Central - Xbox 360
Easily the best game for the Kinect right now. If only they had better music. It *is* possible to dance to great rock music.
6 7 02. Kinect Sports - Xbox 360
Fun game, will get you up and around. The controls are 90% there, but only 90%, you will still feel frustrated occasionally. The level of precision varies from game to game - Bowling is best, Volleyball is worst. It's still a lot of fun, and I await Kinect Sports 2 with better controls and new games.
64 6.3 03. Kinect Adventures! - Xbox 360
Go left, then go right, then jump in the air,
Wave your hands like you just don't care.
Yeah, that's pretty much the whole game. It's much easier, and way more fun with two people. On your own, it gets old pretty quick.

319 8.4 04. Batman: Arkham Asylum - Xbox 360
Wow, just wow. Easily the best Batman game ever created, and quite possibly the best game ever created. The Joker has taken over Arkham Asylum, taken the Warden and Gordon prisoner and it's up to Batman to stop him and rescue everyone in the prison/asylum. It's an RPG and you play as Batman, no Robin to distract you. It's heavily influenced by the Christopher Nolan films in terms of style and characterisation.
Let's start with the environment, it *is* stunning. Arkham is present in the game in all it's creepy glory. There's several buildings, all rendered with lavish detail. The music is mostly very good. I'm not completely enamoured with it, but more often than not, it's adds to the atmosphere.
The characters get as much attention as the environment, if not more. As part of a puzzle quest, you get patient interview tapes all through the game. All of them are exceptional, kudos to both the writers and the voice artists. You encounter all the classic Bat-villains - the Joker, of course, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Bane, Killer Croc, Bane and Scarecrow. The story is largely driven forward by The Joker but each of the other villains gets their 15 mins. Then there is Batman himself. He's voiced by Kevin Conroy, who has done a brilliant job voicing Batman since the early 1990s starting with the Animated Series. His face, his suit, his weapons - everything is perfect.
The game play emphasises stealth over action. You get the fights with the inmates and the boss fights but much of the game involves sneaking around without being detected by your pursuers. This is entirely in keeping with the character of Batman, who never carries a gun and relies on stealth and surprise to overpower his opponents. You get toys and upgrades to help with this, the Batarang chief among them.
The game play, the story, the characters, the environment are the best in a Batman game created so far. As a Batman fan (both movies and graphic novels), I am in heaven every time I play this game. It's as close to perfection as a game can be, in my opinion.
292 7.9 05. Alan Wake - Xbox 360
Highly rated, still have to play through it. After playing about 20% of it, I have to say, it's very spooky. I get chills down my spine every couple of minutes I play the game.
21 7.3 06. Virtua Tennis 3 - Xbox 360
The best Tennis game I've played, ever. Too bad they screwed it up completely with the follow up.
126 7.7 07. Brütal Legend - Xbox 360
The demo was very cool, and the main character is voiced by Jack Black, what's to lose in trying it out?
XboX 360 : Arcade
12 8.3 08. Costume Quest - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
It's Halloween and your twin has been kidnapped by candy stealing monsters. What do you do? You go defeat all those monsters using your costume super powers! The premise is the most original I've seen in an RPG for a long time. The fights are turn based in the style of the early Final Fantasy games. The game takes roughly 10 hours to complete and I was hooked all the way through.
17 7.6 09. Ilomilo - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
Ilo and Milo are two friends who want to spend every day with each other. Unfortunately, they have to meet in a new place every time, so it takes a bit of work to find each other. The game basically consists of a 3D maze with Ilo and Milo is different parts of it. You can navigate one or the other at a time, with the ultimate objective of meeting somewhere. The puzzles are varied and clever, along with different items and characters to help you along the way. The music and art are excellent, making this a really fun puzzle to solve.
96 8.3 010. Limbo - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
I'm stuck at 64% and I can't get past!!
Visually stunning game, all black, white and grey tones. You are stuck is some sort of afterlife or post-apocalyptic world, I can't tell which, and man, is it violent. The puzzles are challenging and varied and keep you engaged throughout. The auto save is a boon here, because I rarely finished a puzzle at the first go, and I died, a lot.
26 8.1 011. Peggle - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
Shoot a ball at pegs in many many different arrangements. The game isn't very challenging or varied, but that works in it's favour as well. You can just sit there, not think too much and play level after level, which can be good sometimes.
15 7.9 012. A Kingdom for Keflings - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
Basically, it's the equivalent of the casual Facebook games like Farmville, for the XboX 360. You walk around building different buildings. As you keep building, you open up more blueprints and build workshops and factories that allow you to create new parts for other buildings. Nothing challenging here, just an easy way to pass a few hours.
