Can you guys recommend the games that you consider to be hidden gems on the Xbox?

If you like shooting games Black is a must. I loved the game back in the day and still have it on my xbox hdd now. Sound effects from the guns was particularly good as at the time it heavily pushed the film links eg - the uzi is the one used in the Schwarzenegger true lies film and bruce willis die hard mp5 :)

Theres also a full conversion mod for gta san andreas which is really good. it adds alot of stuff to the game and converts the cars available to real life counterparts

120gb hdd, vinyl magma skin, front lights, side strip lights, clear jewel mod with lights, ir dongle mod, hdd indicator. X3 with LCD many mods inc custom x3 jewel.

I like SSX Tricky, but that might be mostly for nostalgic reasons.

My personal number one is Metal Wolf Chaos. Followed by Panzer Dragoon Orta!
Rallisport Challenge 2 is a great driving game, any Burnout games too.
Ninja Gaiden Black is a classic also. I`ll stop there as this could go on and on....

I'd also suggest Black. That is an excellent 1st person shooter. I'd also recommend Midtown madness for a cool car game simply because it is such a massive game that you won't finish real quickly. Another good 1st person shooter is FarCry mainly because it has an excellent map editing tool that lets you make your own battlefield. I actually enjoyed making the maps once I become good at it. The maps can then be copied to other Xboxes in a LAN network and you can all play on these custom maps you have created.

Stubbs the Zombie is a very funny game... as is Conker live and reloaded.

Forza Motorsport is brilliant too, though hardly "hidden"!

Metal Wolf Chaos (Mech game) and Spikeout Battle Street (beatem-up) are hidden gems I just started playing and they are pretty good.

black is a good game, enter the matrix, destroy all humans, i just started but am enjoying. my wife and myself have been playing harry potter and the goblet of fire, that one is good for two players and the computer gives you a great laugh at times being stupid lol.
