Player\r\n models, stadiums, tackles, catches, and throws have never looked\r\n this good before.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n NBA\r\n 2K6\r\n If you own an HDTV capable of 720p resolution, then NBA 2K6 is\r\n one of the best-looking basketball games you've ever seen.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n NBA\r\n Live 06\r\n NBA Live 06 can be considered, in a lot of ways, the first true\r\n next-generation basketball game. The game engine has been rebuilt\r\n from scratch, and the game does indeed make a great first\r\n impression on high-definition screens, with excellent-looking\r\n player models and courts.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n NBA Live 06\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n\r\n Need\r\n for Speed Most Wanted\r\n For the release of the Xbox 360, Electronic Arts is serving up\r\n the latest installment in its long-running racing series, Need\r\n for Speed Most Wanted. Its high-speed races and police chases\r\n make for an extremely exciting game, which is further enhanced by\r\n the game's terrific graphics. This is one of those games that\r\n makes the previous generation of hardware look older than it\r\n actually is.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n NHL\r\n 2K6\r\n NHL 2K6 features new goalie controls and marginally improved\r\n graphics.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Perfect\r\n Dark Zero\r\n This awesome, high-tech first-person shooter champions the Xbox\r\n 360 with its excellent assortment of single- and multiplayer game\r\n types, as well as its incredible good looks and dynamic, intense\r\n action.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Peter Jackson's King Kong The Official\r\n Game of the Movie\r\n Simply stated, Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of\r\n the Movie, is not just a great use of the license and a wonderful\r\n movie tie-in, but it's a stupendous game to boot.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Prey\r\n Prey is a first-person shooter in which players take on the role\r\n of a character who must fight against multiple alien races.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Project\r\n Gotham Racing 3\r\n With the launch of every new gaming console, certain titles\r\n define the technological capacity of that platform and usher in\r\n the next generation in style. For the Nintendo 64, it was Mario\r\n 64; for the original Xbox, it was Halo. We have a new candidate\r\n for that honour: Bizarre Creations' Project Gotham Racing 3, a\r\n gripping and intense racing game that is a welcome addition to\r\n the 360's launch lineup.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n Project Gotham Racing 3\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n\r\n Tiger\r\n Woods PGA Tour 06\r\n While Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 for Xbox 360 is missing many of the\r\n features that round out the game on current-gen platforms and the\r\n PC, what remains is a challenging, enjoyable game of golf that,\r\n in some ways, exceeds the more fleshed-out versions.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n The\r\n Outfit\r\n Set in Europe during WWII, The Outfit is a squad-based action\r\n game that pits your team against the Nazi War Machine.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced\r\n Warfighter\r\n The fate of the Mexican government--and Western political\r\n stability--is in the hands of the Ghosts in the first Tom Clancy\r\n game to hit the Xbox 360.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Tony Hawk's American Wasteland\r\n Don't let the recent name changes fool you. Tony Hawk's American\r\n Wasteland is the seventh Tony Hawk game developed by Neversoft in\r\n as many years..\r\n\r\n Top Spin 2\r\n Top Spin returns for another round of simulation tennis on the\r\n Xbox 360. In Top Spin 2, you can play as a variety of real tennis\r\n champions, including Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Andy\r\n Roddick, and Lleyton Hewitt, or your own customised player.\r\n\r\n \r\n Back to top\r\n \r\n\r\n Click here for CNET.com.au's\r\n comprehensive Xbox 360 Launch\r\n Centre.
