Favorite games for the console so far are Call of Duty 4 and Assassin's Creed.
Call of Duty 4 is the best game of the year for a reason. The story telling in a modern, accurate, and frightening realistic war of terror is absolutely phenomenal! The details of the weaponry, uniforms, body features, and landscape are amazing! And, for all of those who want to be RAMBO in these shoot em' up type games....no problem. One shot to the head of your opponent and the brains paint the wall behind them. It's gruesome! But, again....the game delivers everything the title says Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Assassin's Creed is beautifully detailed. From the uniforms and the ancient cities of the Crusades. The fighting combos are great, like watching something out of Braveheart or Kingdom of Heaven. It's gory, but being an assassin, the job isn't meant to be easy. But, my only complaint is how repetitive the game is. You're constantly doing small side missions over and over again to get enough information to perform an assassination. Sure, the plot is well written and would actually make a fine film, but all the repetitiveness leads in to a bummer ending. Basically, while playing the game, you're waiting for something amazing to happen. It doesn't. So, if you love historical accuracy or even the Crusades, this is the game to get. But if you lack patience....Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is more your speed.
