Suggestions for an xbox game please!

Gonna trade some games in at Blockbuster for a new one.  I like most types of game except sports ones (exception being NHL which I already have).  I don't use xbox Live- too many "pros" that take the fun out of it.

In the last 12-18 months, I've completed and/or played:

GTA4
Great fun, great graphics but a little bit of the same old.

Assassins Creed
Loved this once I learnt how to fight properly, completed it twice for kicks, and I can go forever in it without ever losing a fight now, can't wait for follow-up.

Far Cry 2
Loved the first version on PC.  Got really bored with this really quickly- I struggle with games like this on xbox, need a mouse to aim properly and got sick of killing the same enemies again and again by driving over the same bridge or checkpoint.  Didn't get far into the game before I got bored- it was literally drive here, kill ****, drive back and kill the same **** you killed on your way there.

ES4:Oblivion
Awesome game, played this loads a few years ago on then housemates xbox, then bought it for myself really enjoyed it despite thinking I'd hate it!

Fallout 3
Actually got this on PC.  Very absorbing, but not exactly great.  Completed the main quest to realise I couldn't go back into the world, so tried several times to get back into it from an earlier point in the game but just get sick of it within 10 mins.

Saints Row 2
Didn't get into it- too arcade-like and wanted GTA4 more.  Now I've played GTA4, Saints Row has no appeal.

NHL2009

PGR4
Boring crap- not into arcade racing games, especially when they feel slow and hard to control

Need for speed
Can't remember which one, quite a recent one but not the newest one.  Quite good fun and immense feeling of speed, but a bit same old same old.

Tom Clancys End War
Novel at first, giving voice orders, bit ultimately a bit crap and no longevity or desire to play it.

Fable II
Got this on recommendation that it is a good adventure game.  Its not.  Very linear, very average, very flawed, crap fight system, though pretty and cute storyline.  I've got bored of it very quickly and will gladly trade it in without even completing it.

Rainbow 6: Vegas

First one, not bad but not great, really didn't enjoy the permanent casino theme. 

Ghost Recon Advanced War Fighter
Again, only bothered with first one as I tend to get games late on when the price drops.  Was ok, spent a good few hours on it but felt like I was playing for the sake of playing it, and I didn't like the lack of strategy that Tom Clancy games used to be good for, like the planning stages and stuff.

FEAR
Played a few of the FEAR series on PC, liked the graphics and weapon effects but nothing new here, just a scary 1st person shooter.

Thats about it that I can remember (played Half-Life 2 to death over the years too).

I was looking at HAWX but I have a feeling that will be a little boring and unrealistic after an hour of play. 
Also looking at C&C: Red Alert 3, but needs to be on PC really, and mine won't keep up with it now I don't think.
Fight Night 4 looks very pretty, and I played 2 & 3 a lot, but I get sick of them once I get to the point of losing all the time, and the "training games" spoil it for me.

All the other titles in Blockbuster I don't really know anything about?  They all look a bit weird to be honest!

Any suggestions!!?  I didn't think I was that hard to please, but I've been gaming intensely for over 15 years now so I guess its hard to find something original and its made me pretty critical!

    What about Silent Hill 2?
    Its a "survival horror" game and it is genuinly scary if you're playing it alone in a dark room, no online game but it makes Resedent Evil 5 look like a visit to Disney Land.
    Or what about Fuel? loads of fun but you need to go online to get the most out of it.
    Red Faction is also a quality shooter IMO, it has a good 1 player campaign with online co-op option if you don't want to compete against other gamers.
    Or the new UFC game? Great fun if you're a fan, I wouldn't bother if you're not though, it really comes to life when you play it online though.

    Finding something to blur the boredom of unemployment? I don't have an Xbox, and saving up is going to take a while on benefits lol.

    Gears or War 2, brilliant single player campaign and the multiplayer/horde modes are a total winner.

    I have fight night round 4, what I will say is you will probably only get a day or two of good fun out of it, the career mode isnt that long lasting and just doing fights all the time gets boring quickly.
    The gameplay is pretty good and enjoyable but overall I don't think its worth a purchase.

    Great  online but I found the 1 player game average TBH.
     
    Gears of War 1 and/or 2 are great games IMO, again they have a "co-op" option so you can enjoy online play without getting pwned by teh n00bs, the game has an epic story with a very cinematic sort of feel to the cut scenes if you enjoy just sitting back and watching the story unfild at intervals throughout the game

    I'd be lying if I said I followed UFC, so not sure if I'll enjoy the game?

    Silent Hill I've heard of, is it linear or free-roaming?  RPG type game?

    Red Faction: Guerilla, just looked at this now:

    Like the look of all the destruction and free-roaming, this is winning the race at the moment...!

    Tempted, but the COD before that wasn't that great, especially on an xbox controller!

    I really, really didn't like 1 from the very little I played of it, is 2 much different!?

    Yeah mate!  GF got me an xbox for Christmas, I've always been a PC man myself but its too expensive to keep on top of upgrading a PC!  I've been back and played pretty much every old game on PC that I've ever wanted to play but couldn't at the time!



    Played all the Hitman games too, good games.

    When I lived with my mate, he played GOW1 obsessively both co-op and online.  I could never see the appeal, just looked dark and dingy and much the same muchness.  I had a couple of goes on it but didn't take to it!  The storyline (from what I saw of it) reminded me on the Unreal games before they turned into multiplayer games.

    Don't think I'll bother then tbh.  Watched the video review and it looks awesome, very pretty graphics and stuff, but I can imagine it getting a little tedious/same old quite quickly.


    I really want to see on the shelves:
    Assassins Creed 2
    GTA5
    Elder Scrolls 5

    Gears of War II is the most addictive game I've ever played in my life.

    I had to get my wife to hide the power cable to the X-box as I was playing it far too much.

    Looking forward to COD Modern Warfare II

    I haven't played it, but Prototype is getting some good reviews.

    It isn't out till next month but keep an eye out for the new Batman game, it's supposed to be great.

    Splinter Cell.

    No idea what the 360 version(s?) are like but the original was my favourite game on the 1st xbox.

    As others have said, Gears of war 2.  I don't really play games anymore, but I had a go at this at a mates house and was totally hooked. If you have an xbox 360, it's a crime not to have this game.

    Apart from that it's all about SF4. Awesome.

    I've just remembered, you can get half life 2 for the 360. If you like first person shooters you have to get it. Best FPS of all time imo.
