I too shared that thought about FIFA but after reading all sorts of reviews and listened to people went for it and it is a much more authentic experience.
L really like COD5 but a lot of people have moaned about it, certainly losts of glitches online but that might habe been fixed with the recent update ( I have onlt played briefly recently)
Left 4 Dead is classic.

Get 4, it's much better. The gameplay is pretty fast but not too dissimilar to Halo once you are used to the controls

For a WW2 game, COD5 exceeded my expectations (that it would be shit basically). Love the Nazi Zombie mini-game too. Loads of weapons, not like 1 pistol, 1 rifle and a grenade. There is SHIT LOADS of weapons.

BIOSHOCK 2 - can't wait for htat shit Laughing out loud

Run the Xbox Live test under network settings. See if it brings up an error. it could be that your NAT is not Open anymore which causes connection issues to Live.

I imagine that is all foreign to you Laughing out loud

If you can do the first be and report back then will try take it from there.

Have you exceeded your 3 year hardware warranty? If not, simply give Microsoft a call and they can repair it for you for free. Usually replace the motherboard with the latest chipset and update your DVD drive. If you are no longer under warranty, there are several places in London which fix RROD for £35, google it for your local store.

Fuck Xbox support, they owe me two free controllers, because my Xbox has fucked itself 7 times - everytime I phone, I just get annoyed at the automated support and hang up before I even get to talk to someone who can't understand me. Tried e-mailing them as well, and they said they couldn't resolve it over e-mail and I'd have to call.

^^Sega Rally (£10ish 2nd hand) is quality for split screen with a mate but very much arcade style racing.

Forza 2 is still the best.

forza 2 is a bit serious (boring) as its simulation and you'll need to drive a bunch of mundane cars before unlocking the good stuff.

pgr4 is probably the best pick up and play racing game; or the latest burnout game but its not as good as the old ones as it doesn't have split screen mulitplayer or the mode where you had to crash and blow up as many things as possible from a take off.
