Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike

If you still play Ghost Recon 2 on Live you have to buy this game. Not necessarily because it's a must-buy, but because everyone else on Xbox Live is going to swap over — it's pretty much compulsory. Sure there'll be a few days of no man's land, but eventually the predecessor will be discarded and forgotten. Just watch the second-hand shelves for proof.

Super Monkey Ball Deluxe

It might reek of Nintendo Telly Tubbery and get harder than a Docker's punch, but Super Monkey Ball Deluxe is a well crafted piece of software that you'd be well advised to check out. It's a bit like a bag of Jelly Tots; you want to dive in, but you wouldn't want your mates to see you doing it. So do it behind closed doors.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

The format's been done so many times we may as well call it Abi Titmiss! But, mercifully, Ultimate Destruction has an enticing playground to distract you long beyond the uninspired missions in the form of a city that's just gagging to be abused. Think Spider-Man 2 without the webs and you know that Ultimate Destruction is an inky dollop of comic-book class that you'll play as a destructive distraction.

MotoGP: Ultimate Racing Technology 3

This is a fantastic sequel with some good additions. However, this is still a bike game and we really can't recommend it unless it's your thing.

Big Mutha Truckers 2: Truck Me Harder

The elements of a decent game are here, but everything ultimately unravels because you are never given the time or the space to have fun.

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down

No one can deny the formidable technical feat Climax has achieved here with its conversion of Novalogic's 2003 PC original. We thought we'd be flying to work in rocket cars and vacationing on the moon before we'd see 50-players on the Xbox. But, a game so woefully behind its peers in every other aspect (graphics, sound, physics, depth, feel) remains impossible to recommend, online or off.
