Xbox software is getting pretty scarce these days, as more and more companies hop onto the Xbox 360 bandwagon. But it's good to see the "little companies" continue to give the hardware the old college try, as Playlogic has with Xyanide. While the gameplay isn't really anything new, it's all backed by a terrific story, a mounting challenge, and some impressive graphics. The whole thing may be a bit too hard for some (the credits are limited), but Xyanide is still a sure-fire pick for shooter fans.
