Crackdown is a cel-shaded sandbox style fighting game in the style of Grand Theft Auto and Saint's Row - but this time you're on the side of justice. Sort of. Best of all, you get into the free beta of Halo 3!
Dreamfall - The Longest Journey
Dreamfall - The Longest Journey is the sequel to the original adventure game named The Longest Journey. This game is more like participating in a 10 hour movie than playing a game, and your primary goal is to watch cut-scenes, solve a puzzle or two, and run on gathering quests.
First, the plot. You´re in a medieval village. A giant chasm has split you (the "good guys") from the Outlanders (the "bad guys").

MechAssault 2 Lone Wolf brings us yet another game of fun robot driving. You get a wide range of robots, as well as a few types of gameplay.
Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks
Mortal Kombat continues in its series of bloody death matches with Mortal Kombat - Shaolin Monks. However, this game is more adventure a la Gauntlet.

Ninja Gaiden has gorgeous graphics, and lets your ninja character move from rural villages to the halls of a techno air ship.
