20. Panzer Dragoon Orta
Fans of on-rails shooters should be familiar with the Panzer Dragoon series from Sega. Owners of the Saturn got to experience the dragon-flying chaos, and after Sega stepped away from the hardware business, it was Xbox gamers' turn. The game was (and still is to some degree) a visual marvel, thanks to impressive art direction. It also served up quite the challenge, providing the hardcore with just enough punishment to keep things interesting.
The Oddworld franchise was primarily a PlayStation-centric series until the Xbox rolled out with Munch's Oddysee. While this first Oddworld game was a unique experiment for the studio, the franchise really found its footing with Stranger's Wrath, a unique first-person action game set in the wild and wacky Oddworld universe. If you're looking for a fun and charming FPS unlike anything else on the market, I highly recommend you give this one a go.
There's a reason why gamers have been clamoring for a new Battlefont game for the past several years. Star Wars: Battlefront II was an immensely entertaining experience that not only provided endless hours of friend-filled fun, but boasted a campaign that treated Lucas' sci-fi universe with the care and respect it deserved. With DICE currently working on a brand-new entry in the series, there's plenty for Star Wars fans to look forward to.
Ubisoft's impressive open-world first-person shooter Far Cry made the jump to consoles with a remake, dubbed Far Cry Instincts. While the Xbox lacked the same level of technical horsepower as PCs at the time, the game managed to still serve up an incredible action-heavy experience, despite the fact that it had to be made a bit more linear. Ubisoft also added in additional multiplayer modes, weapons, and more, making Instincts a worthy port of the PC original.
The sequel to Sega's beloved adventure game Shenmue was released on the Xbox back in 2002. The game picks up right where the original left off, telling the story of Ryo's search for the man who murdered his father. It has some great characters and a memorable story that fans of Chinese culture will undoubtedly enjoy. There really isn't anything quite like Shenmue II out there, and for its originality alone, deserves to be praised.
