    Are there any aviation games for Xbox? Looking for something with airplanes, helicopters, flying around and shooting down enemies.

    Also, besides Forza 3 and Need For Speed HP, what other great car-racing games are there? Are there any specifically for WRC rally racing?

    Thanks in advance!

    Can't help with aviation games, but for driving games I've enjoyed Project Gotham Racing 4 and Colin McRae Dirt 2.

    Ace Combat 6 for aviation, it's not the most realistic game by far. But it graphics are frakkin beautiful, and the gameplay is fun.

    Tom Clancy's HAWX series is pretty cool, and Ace Combat 6 is also a must-buy.

    Oh Colin McRae Dirt 2, I'll give that a try. My brother recommended Dirt, but I haven't been able to find it yet.
    I'm thinking of heading to Game Stop tomorrow to see if they'll trade a few games. I've got about three of them I don't like.

    Is Colin McRae all WRC racing? And does it have any tarmac stages?
    I have an awesome Colin McRae WRC game for my Mac and I wonder if it's similar.

    RIP C.M. :(

    Ace Combat 6 looked good and the new Ace Combat: Assault Horizons that will be coming out soon looks great too. It has upgraded destruction and it's also the first Ace Combat that you can fly helicopters in too. The best of both worlds.

    Gran Turismo 5 is a great racing sim as well.

    This, except times 100. Also, the 360 can play the Xbox classic Crimson Skies. Find it, buy it, love it.

    Sweet, I am definitely going to have to get a steering wheel for that! I wonder if it's like the one I had ages ago for my old Windows computer. Name sounds very similar.

    That's right, it's sold digitally. Forgot that was one of the games on the list. I've kept my disc since I've owned the original box. And it's also cheaper if you can get it on Amazon, because they're kinda pricey on Live.

    I am told make sure to try the demo for the game. I think its PC only, but apparently the best thing with the game is the graphics.
