I know these are hard to compare as they are so different. I am going to get another game today to celebrate my last college exam/final for this semester, its been a rough one. I am looking for overall fun factor the most I guess. All I want is some input from you guys on which would be a good choice. Id especially like to hear from people that have 2 of the above games or all three. Also, are there any stores that I could buy from that would allow me to return it if I already played it? i have heard costco, but I don't have a membership and its decently far away.
EDIT: I have PDZ alread(only game I own) and am definetely getting COD2 for Xmas. I forgot to mention this.

PGR3 is a pice of shit!!!! well the graphic anyway compared to other X360 titles, lack of anti-alising, but gameplay is nice. and if you have PGR2 on Xbox, stick to it cos graphically same.
Kamio is very nice, beautiful graphic and ganeplay is unique compared to any other platform game.
Dec 16 2005, 03:30 PM
Its really hard to say because everyone has their own opinions. I think every one of the games looks AUSOME in HD and are simply amazing. Ive beat PGR3 which was challenging and very fun. The online is great too!! Just beat kameo which is a pretty short game but to get A rankings on all the levels can be very difficult. I did rank 4th place on the forest level though but it was under my girlfriends profile Gaz I4e
I have condemned but havnt tried it out yet, it does look kewl.

PDZ is fun online, again graphic is very nice too
maybe if your blind, difference between Pgr2 and pgr3 on a hdtv is huge so is the essay i could write on the matter if i cared enough
Dec 16 2005, 03:33 PM
redwolf are you fucking kidding me PGR3 is amazing you must be on crack
pgr3 is the best game ive played so far on 360...and yes its much better than pgr2...
lay off the crack pipe...
Dec 16 2005, 03:36 PM
Will it (PGR3) look really good still on a newer TV using component cables?
Dec 16 2005, 03:37 PM
Yea i agree, PGR3 is the best, they put so much detail into the game. Out of all the places ive only been to Las Vegas but they re did everything in vegas exactly how it is in real life!! I even found the dennys that me and my wife ate at when we went there on our way to the E3.
As long as your using an HDTV then all the xbox360 games will look amazing!
Dec 16 2005, 03:43 PM
They're probably the most graphically impressive of the 3 launch titles IMO.
I've played all 3 and I've enjoyed Condemned the most. If you like shitting your pants get that.
I don't like racing games but my friends all love it. It certainly looks nice (don't listen to the guy who said it's comparable to PG2)! I've you like racing games, get that.
Kameo looks lovely, again not my kind of game. If you like platform adventure games get that!
Dec 16 2005, 03:45 PM
the games look amazing on HD or off... sure you get a graphics boost on a HD tv
but the graphics dont dissapoint nomatter what you play on.
but game play will bedisapointing...as you may very well see alot of people are disapointed wiht PD0
Dec 16 2005, 03:47 PM
^^^ THanks, but yea, i am extremely happy with PDZ, i love the online play. Oh yea and geometry wars rules too!
How is the online play in PGR3?? I could see lag being an issue possibly, but maybe not? I could just see myself laggin at a "photo finish", lol. How many people can you race against in live, and locally?
Dec 16 2005, 05:00 PM
There is no Lag issues with PGR3... even if you get disconnected you'll continue to race on your own local machine and if you're reconnected by the end of the race it will rank you based on time... I've seen it happen once or twice.
Also PGR3 is simply amazing. It's true that it doesn't have enough AA and it probably has more jaggies than any of the other 360 titles I've seen but that doesn't stop it from being flat out amazing graphically. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to go here
I've yet to demo PGR3 for anyone that didn't think it was amazing looking. (hardcore PGR fans and non video game players alike)
Dec 16 2005, 05:22 PM
PGR3 is probably my favorite game in the bunch.
Everything is so real. I live in NY and there's a couple places that I walk by everyday, and even my old high school is right there in the game. Everything is true to life, everything is right where it should be. So real, it's almost scary.

GIT YER EYES DONE BOY!!!(REDWOLF)
Dec 16 2005, 05:35 PM
How many people can race simultaneously over live??
Dec 16 2005, 05:51 PM
all 3 of those games are great picks, but for longevity i would pick either PGR3 or condemned. PGR3 is one of best racers ive played and is very easy to get into yet hard to master. already the LIVE community is great and for the most part the races are intense (you can have up to 6 racers online BTW).
condemned is another graphical showcase and it has made me jump many times. its one of the few games to not only creep you out but it keeps the tension and mood high and the hair on your neck standing up. my brother had to walk out of the room after an "incident" when i was playing in the dark.
Dec 16 2005, 05:57 PM
My 14 yr. old brother does not even want to come near the controller when playing Condemned! I normally play late at night with all the lights out, close all windors and doors, and crank up the surround sound and all he does is watch cause he does not even want to play cause he gets all freaked out! What a puzz but hey his my bro..

It's sad that some so-called "gamers" base their opinion on games because of graphics. GTA 3 is an eyesore, yet it's a blast. Driver 3 looks nice, but it's a chore to play.
I received PDZ (the one in the pretentious box with all the useless shit) as a gift about a week ago. I have to play it in short bursts. The gameplay is lacking. It's not much fun. I know it's just a game, but the story is completely non-sensical. I'm not a graphics whore by any means, but why does damn near every surface in the game need to appear as if it's wet? The weapons are pretty cool (quite a huge arsenal of weapons as well). Online is better but not by much. After I finish it, I'll trade it in for another game. Unfortunately, that won't be anytime soon because I can't stand playing it. I just need to finish it on principle. I'll give it a sporting chance, but I'm doubtful that I'm going to want to keep it after I do.
PGR3 has tremendous replay value. From what I've read and from what friends have told me, Condemned is a short, fun game with no replay value. However, I think I'm going to trade in PDZ for Condemned. I mean, a fun game is a fun game, right?
Dec 16 2005, 06:54 PM
Oh and the maximum players per Live game for PGR3 is 8 (including yourself), not 6.

For your Money PGR3 is the best value, it will take a long time to get bored of (if you like racing games) how do you go wrong:
Graphics - Great to impress the ladies with, my mom thinks it looks great
Controls - I've always loved how the cars in PGR handled
Single Player - Varried Modes, Lots of Cars, amazing tracks that are fun to race and look at. Make your own circuit, listen to your own Music (even during load times!) [Even though this is a feature in all 360 games it's most important in racing and snowboarding/skateboarding games imo] etc.
Multiplayer - Wow, very fun, find a good room and get stuck there driving the rest of your night away. Very entertaining. Enough modes to keep you sane. If you get pissed off when you get rubbed out turn off contact, if you like to rough it up... try to survive that first corner
Lasting appeal - Love you Long Time!
Kameo: Cool neat game, worth playing through and only worth a purchase if you can afford it over pgr3.
Condemned: See Kameo
