Well... I'm still trying to decide what game to get for my X-Box (whenever I get it). I got me a magazine with some demos and tried them out on a friend's X-Box.
Out of all the demos, I thought Thief was the best. There were a couple military games (I dislike military games), a racer and a mech combat game. Also, there was a 2-D side-scroller that I thought looked cool, but my friends didn't see the point of.
Thief had some nice elements to it. Especially the way it uses the vibration to help pick locks. I really like the sneaking around. Don't care much for the voice-actor, though. Sounds like he's over-acting a bit much.
The controls were nice. And I love the robotic zooming eye.
But... it's third-person. That may take a while to get used to. Strangely, I've been playing Star Wars Galaxies in third-person lately. Maybe I do like the format... I just don't want to admit it.
Possible game buys:
Grand Theft Auto Double Pack
Star Wars: Kinghts of the Old Republic
Metal Gear Solid 2
Deus Ex: Invisible War
