    Moto Gp is excellent, especially live if you have broadband or ISDN 128. A demo of it comes free with the live kit. Also, Ghost Recon is superb, just getting into it myself.

    Yes, Ghost is a superb game with or without 'Live'. I have just started it and not tried it online yet. If you have 5.1 sound, it's even better. The wind effects on top of hills is incredible.

    MotoGP 2 should be out soon, and I'm guessing that they will just build on the first one, because the control scheme was just perfect. That's the only thing stopping me from picking up the first one.

    The XBox has been out long enough to get some great deals on early games like Max Payne and Munch's Oddysee. Oh, and I've heard great things about Panzer Dragoon Orta and NFL2K3.

    It's a good mix of tactical and shooting. You control a unit of troops and can switch between them. It's FPS, much like MOH. I really enjoyed the first mission I did, good to have to use stealth and skill as well as blasting. If you like MOH then you'll like this.

    I'm going to have another go tonight, trying to get used to it before I go online and get slaughtered in 20 seconds!

    Oh, by the way, if you were thinking of getting Xbox Live then Comet are doing the kit (usually £40) and Ghost Recon for £50 all in. This is how I got it. You also get playable demos of MotoGP, Whacked and Mechassault. It's a bargain but I could only get it online form www.comet.co.uk

    OK, so it's not like an Unreal or Quake type thing then. I guess it could be. Let me know when you are going on next and I'll see if I can make it.

    Nothing like that if it was i wouldn't play it,
    We work as a team 2-3-4 players or more if we have them :)
    We can play
    missions- like the one you were playing by yourself
    Firefight- loads of enemy all over the map, we have to kill the lot.
    Recon- where we have to get to the recon area some where at the other end of the map. get all the team into it to win or kill all the enemy, this is the one we play the most.

    And then there is team games where we split into teams & fight each other.
    All in all this is the best game on live & once you've played some games on there you'll love it :)

    I'd certainly agree with what liverpool has said. :)
    The thing with this game is although the UI is very badly designed there is in fact an awful lot of different settings you can change, you just have to find them!
    So you could have a "just shoot everywhere" if you wish.

    However the tactical side of this game is it's strongest point IMO. When I host I have the difficulty on Elite, the threat indicator off, no time limit and generally, depending on amount of people, the game mode set to Co-opted / Recon.
    With the game mode in Recon we've found the enemy very well spread out on the map and always in different places. This throws open a much more unpredictable game where you have to work as a team in order to survive.
    Also with no threat indicator it's up to everyone to "keep 'em peeled" (that was for the older readers by the way) ;)

    :)

    I find that in single player, my team shoot all the terrorists before I see them! Apart from when we got to the tent camp that is and then I had fun sniping at them from the hill.

    I may try to get on this evening sometime if I have time.

    That was a one off night mate and you know it!

    You'll eventually spot them long before your team. That particular map is quite tricky as the enemy are very well camouflaged.
    Either stick with the sniper rifle, which you had chosen or choose an assault rifle coupled with binoculars.
    Thses two combinations should give you a head start.
    Also don't forget that night vision doesn't always necessarily mean use at night ;)

    :)

    Had a go on live tonight and it was fun although I was a little bemused as to what was going on. I ran around after these guys who were whacking everyone b4 I got there! I did get one scumbag which made me very happy.

    Glad you enjoyed it :)

    Generally we tend to let each other know when we spot some enemy.
    That way each of us gets a fair old pull of the trigger :D
    And hopefully less bullets coming towards us ;)
