The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, July 12 @ 15:04:00 PST by Alex_Osborn

10. Rainbow Six 3

Those looking for a hardcore tactical first-person shooter found a happy home on the Xbox with Rainbow Six 3. Instead of merely being a run-and-gun FPS, this popular Tom Clancy game for the Xbox required careful thought and precision. It's more about accomplishing the task at hand rather than mowing down as many foes as possible. Working within a squad offers up a unique experience that makes Rainbow Six what it is. It also featured Xbox Live support, so yeah, there was a lot of fun to be had online.

9. Jade Empire

After blowing gamers' minds with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, BioWare handed off the franchise to Obsidian and opted to work on a role-playing experience that was very different in theme, Jade Empire. The game is set in a mythical form of ancient China—a very different setting than Star Wars, so no blasters or lightsabers to be found here. Instead the combat was far more active, incorporating various fighting styles including martial arts and magic. Those looking for an action-RPG with a really unique and inspired setting should give this game a look.

8. The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay

To just about everyone's surprise at the time, Starbreeze Studios was able to craft an incredible first-person action game set in the Chronicles of Riddick universe. Riddick actor Vin Diesel played a significant role in the game's development and naturally served as the face and voice of the protagonist. Butcher Bay was a visual marvel back on the Xbox, but the game's quality went far deeper than that. The incredible blend of stealth and intense action moments makes The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay one of the best first-person games available on the platform.

7. Psychonauts

Those with a creative side certainly have a soft spot for Psychonauts, an incredibly imaginative and quirky action platformer from Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine Productions. The game stars Raz, a boy with psychic abilities who sneaks into a summer camp with the aim to become a Psychonaut. In the game, players are able to jump into the minds of other characters. As you might expect, this lends itself to some of the most creative level design ever conceived in an action-platformer. Psychonauts is a real gem that didn't get as much love as it should have when it first launched.

6. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

Sam Fisher's final outing on the Xbox was easily his best. At this point, the folks over at Ubisoft Montreal had plenty of experience developing for the hardware and was able to squeeze every ounce of processing juice out Microsoft's gaming machine. In addition to its stunning visuals, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory featured an incredible multiplayer portion, including a much-improved version of Pandora Tomorrow's Spies vs. Mercs game mode. With such a unique approach to asymmetrical multiplayer, Chaos Theory's online offerings will go down in history as some of Ubisoft's best.
