  A peek at the Xbox games
Updated 14 March 2002, 11.22

As the Xbox goes on sale in Europe, Darren Waters has been trying out some of the games.

Project Gotham Racing


Racing around the streets of London, New York, Tokyo and San Francisco at ridiculously high speeds is the name of the game.

While lacking the sense of realism and attention to detail offered in the PlayStation 2 game Gran Turismo 3 it is a lot more fun to play.

The Xbox even allows you to rip - or copy - your own songs from CDs onto its hard drive and then have them playing as you race around.

Class.


Oddworld: Munch's Odyssey


Enter the madcap world of Munch and Abe.

A dark and endlessly inventive platform game it has the necessary "just one more go" feel about it.

At times you will believe there is an evil force lurking inside your Xbox playing with you.

It'll last a lot longer than many of your other games.


Championship Manager 01/02


Soccer fans who fancy themselves as a Sven Goran Eriksson or Alex Ferguson will love it.

But beware - the game is so addictive you may find yourself losing a great deal of sleep over why your star striker is looking for a new club and why your back four is not working as a defensive unit.

The launch of this game brings PCs and consoles together.

Outstanding!
