32 games every Xbox 360 owner must own

From Borderlands to Halo to Mass Effect, GamePro sorts through hundreds of titles to bring you 32 of the best Xbox 360 games that we've seen on the console so far.

12 Dead Space



Visceral Games pretty much dethroned Capcom's longstanding undead-hunting franchise Resident Evil as the king of the survival-horror genre when they released their blood-curdling masterpiece in terror, Dead Space. Heck, this game wins the crown just based on the gruesome beasties reminiscent of those from John Carpenter's The Thing. It wasn't the fact that Dead Space approached survival-horror in an all-new way -- the game actually borrowed quite a bit from Resident Evil 4 in terms of the way you move around and combat enemies -- no, what made Dead Space so terrifying was the dread-soaked atmosphere, the mood of being alone in space, and the disgusting mutated passengers infesting the mining ship you're stuck on... passengers that only get grosser and more frightening as the game progresses.

    Infamous. Almost impossible to describe in 100 words. It’s a fast-paced, open world, third person, action-adventure with a storyline that is truly cinematic. The graphics stand out well beyond it's time and the game play is second to none. It's a truly rewarding game with great replay value. The abilities you master are incredible and make you feel stronger than in any other game. There are lots of "wow" moments and even moments when you breathe in anticipation and anxiety. The enemies actually enrage you and your friends are fascinating. A great game that I’m yet to find a successor.

    I think crysis2 and homefront should be in the top 32.

    What I think should be a full listed game would have to be call of duty Black Ops. This game is said to be the best First person player in the world on any console, Especially X box 360. I've watched tutorials and It basically looks real, BEST GRAFIX EVA. ^^

    no way halo reach for the win awesome story line even though i don't play the game much when ever i go over my mates we play it all the time and i really want to ad an xbox 360 to my collection cause i already got
    ps3 ps1 ps2 psp atari sega nintendo ds nintendo gamboy sp advance and original and nintendo 64

    i would have to say call of duty blackops wins the story line because they have been bringing call of duty games out nearly every year and started to put the games on the main 3 consoles like blackops came out on wii ps3 pc xbox 360 and the call of duty franchise had been going for ages

    Drew

    I would have to say COD Black Ops would win the story line because in my personal opinion it is an amazing game, and your not limited when playing it. It comes out on pretty much any well franchised games console and is well known and played by many accross the globe.

    I think fable 2 i havent played it but i played the first fable it was one of the best games on it when i buy a xbox 360 fable gunna be the first game i buy = )

    i think prototype should be in the top 32 games, i know it was made in 2009 but you cant beat the graphics and the parcour skills you can perform are amazing. I also like the fact that you can change into anyone in the surrounding world. Plus your moves and combos you can learning are pretty awesome.

    I gotta say gta. Me and my buddys used to spend hours running the streets killing people. Great game and great fun!,,

    Tyronne

    Fallout 3 is the best game ever, the fact it's an RPG, FPS and it's free-form, makes it the most enjoyable game ever for me, and if you don't have get, all platforms are good, Xbox360 is the best though

    Liam Semmens

    I recon call of duty black opps. Because it has really good stuff and also because it came out pretty early and its a great games :)

    George Terpens

    I think Star Wars: The Force Unleashed should be on bcause it has great graphics aswell as a really good storyline, which makes a great game. The gameplay is outstanding.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
