I need some help, Dear Readers

Ok, so some of you may have noticed my mention that I won an XBox 360 Arcade Bundle at work. No Harddrive or anything, but a wireless controller and a 5 arcade games came with it. So far, I have bought Bioshock and thats it. I have a list of games, and was curious if any of you had messed with any of them, and could point me in the right direction, give me YOUR impressions of these selections.

Oblivion: Game of the Year Edition
The Orange Box
99 Nights
Eternal Sonata
Saints Row
Enchanted Arms
Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold Edition
Thrillville: Off the Rails
Original Fable (The Lost Chapters)
Viva Pinata

XBox Live Arcade (Gotta get a Harddrive First)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Sonic the Hedgehog
Street Fighter 2: Hyperfighting
3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures
Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Oblivion: Game of the Year Edition – Read reviews online. All the bad stuff they say about it is true. Again, Bethesda went for quantity over quality and ended up with a buggy vanilla game. Thinking of this and the fact that they now onw the Fallout liscence is why I cry at night.Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold Edition – Meh. If you’re the kind of person who will enjoy repetative button mashing to unlock new powers and costumes, then it’s O.K. If that’s not for you, you can probably get by on a rental.Original Fable (The Lost Chapters) – Didn’t live up to it’s promise and the save feature was broken as hell (only saved progress up to the last step of the main quest you completed so if you got any neat stuff or did anything after that it was lost)Viva Pinata – It was fun but it’s onw of those games that straddle the line between “thrill of discovering the unknown” and “need a strategy guide”. No guide and you’ll never figure certain stuff out. Get the guide and the game quickly becomes boring. If you’re the kind of person who could play animal crossing or the sims for more than a little bit, it could be fun.Castlevania: Symphony of the Night – Standard 2D Castlevania with RPG elements. Too much backtracking for my tastes, but if you don’t LIKE linear progression, it’s the best 2D castlevania there was.Street Fighter 2: Hyperfighting – Rent yourself a copy of Marvel vs Capcom 2, Marvel vs SNK 2, and Capcom fighting Evolution, and see which you like best. Hyper fighting is just hyper fighting, but those three titles are giant-rostered finely honed games that far surpass the older games.hope that helps. Any of these are worth a rent to see if it hooks you in the least.
