Xbox (those first impressions)...
Needless to say I played with my new Xbox well into the wee small hours last night. I'm hooked. Simply sensational. Mark got up an hour early this morning to play before going to work. It's that good.

And reviews in single sentence:-
Xbox: The graphics are excellent, the device a little big and heavy, the controllers equally so, but it has the feel of a well built device though and it will now be a permanent part of my living room furniture.

Halo: Tricky to get used to the controls at first, very satisfying killing the aliens though, not as smooth as I had expected, great fun and lots of strategy involved. (4 stars)
Project Gotham Racing: Looks fantasic, oversteering takes a bit of getting used to, the detail of say Leicester Square is close to photo realistic, most fun in multi-player mode with loads of nice touchs. (4 stars)
Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee: Superbly cute, witty, involving, challenging, funny gameplay. (5 stars)
