Hi, this is my first review and hope you will find it useful
instead of reviewing games(I believe there are tons of people who can do a far better job than me i have decided to review the most important and influencial Apps in the scene today.
Xbox Media Center:
Wow. This is got to be the closest thing to the greatest homebrew app in history for game consoles(and no i am not being biased)There are tons of people that want to get their xbox modded just for having this app running in it alone. Not only is this a great App but it is also a candidate of th BEST dashboard out there.Xbos Media Center features so much stuff i would not cover them all in this review, so the best recomendation i can give you is try it for yourself it is just amazing.From playing your backed up DVD movies from over a network(yes with menu's and everything)to checking the local weather in your area this thing is SICK AND WRONG! give it a try i have nothing more to say
It is a great application but it may not be for people with a retail hard drive.People usually use this to backup their own games into the hd for safe keeping and faster loading times.People with retail hard drives can not enjoy it much since their space is limited.Dont get me wrong still a great App just not for everyone.
Although the people who enjoy its benefits are happy people that never get their original discs scratched and laugh at people who load games off a disc because their loading times is WAY shorter
4/5 (just because it may not be an App for everyone)
Ahhh the legendary dashboard. Probably the one many will argue that it kicked everything off in the scene.
It was a great Dashboard upon release but it is now sorely beaten as a Dashboard by many superior choices(Xbox media Center, Avalaunch and UnleashX)Many people have the misconception that this is a safe dashboard for beginners.THIS IS NOT TRUE. It is a dashboard that allows you to flash your bios which is particularly dangerous if the user is a beginner user that is tinkering with features and flashes it with the wrong bios. The user may just end up with a useless Xbox. It is still a great APP nowadays since it can help you flash your bios but i personally believe there is little to no reason to have it as a main dashboard and that noobs should stay away from it
One of the most complete Dashboards out there. The dash looks great and if it does not fit your tastes there a TONS of skins for it out there. Also it features a nice gamesave manager feature which avalaunch lacks. It is very little left to say on how good this thing is. My only gripe is that you can not download gamesaves straight to your xbox like avalaunch does.
Man, this is a decent dashboard with the gamesave download feature, but truth be told it does not feature so much eye candy as the other dash's do. still it is a pretty good dashboards that features a repertoir of decent features for the users including shoutcast interaction w/ xlink kai (just like Xbox media Center)
you may want to give the Dash a try it may just suit your tastes.
well this is it for today expect more reviews in the future from me hope you enjoy my article
