If you are like me, then you probably take time out to check reviews of new Xbox 360 games before dropping your hard-earned cash on a title. If so, you will definitely appreciate the new and upcoming titles that will keep you glued to your console.
The Apache series of games has always had a loyal following and the new Apache: Air Assault allows players to fully indulge in the aerial warfare fantasy. For the average player, this game will take them to 14 different levels of conflict. You will get to experience what it is like to deal with pirates off the African coast, the drug lords of South America and other locales, all of which are designed to be tackled from the air. You may need to go through the tutorial stage to get acquainted with the operation of an Apache. As you move up to the Realistic difficulty level, you begin to appreciate the physics of flying a helicopter and what it takes to stay alive. In order to beat even a single mission, you will need to have proper handling of both the altitude and rotation.
Other new Xbox 360 games that have gotten good reviews are Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, NBA 2K11, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and Halo Reach among others. Halo, one of the most successful franchises in video game history has done it again with Reach taking the Xbox 360 scene by storm. Taking place a few weeks before the events of the first game, Reach adds new graphics to the sequel making it look more mature and giving the title a class that fits its name. In this final chapter of the series, a multi-player feature makes Halo join the ranks of other multi-player games like Madden and Call of Duty and claims the spot of one of the must-play new Xbox games. This is serious stuff.
NHL is another game worth mentioning and the tagline "any moment can be a wow moment" is a totally accurate catchphrase that appears on the back cover of the NHL 11 for both the Xbox and the Playstation 3. The game adds those "wow moments" by being very natural and realistic. The only thing that is lacking is being able to head out for a few beers after the game with your team buddies.
Other brand new Xbox 360 games worth checking out include Vanquish, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Quantum Theory and Fallout: New Vegas.
