5.1 is something even the original XBOX did really well, so far most 360 games have had a quite high standard of 5.1, If i had to pick one out though it would be GRAW2, not only because the implementation of 5.1 is good with explosions, bullets whizzing past etc but because in middle of all this the orchestral soundtrack will kick in and just take it to the next level, awesome sound on that game!
Played countless 360 games and demo's nothing comes close to the way condemned's sounds integrate perfectly for the game. Not just because its jumpy just the quality of it excels. It was the first real time i took notice that we had arrived to the 'next gen' :dd: on the fly since coming from the xbox.
Other honorable mentions for Gears Of War, Crackdown & PGR3.
When I first got rainbow 6 I set up all my surround sound properly, I remember in the research labs thes fan noises, well I was walking round my living room trying to find the noise. I listened into the back speaker and there it was, I have been sold on it ever since and wouldn't play games anyother way anymore. But for war its GRAW2 or Rainbow and for just out and out good use of the sound in a game its comdemed.
