What XBox game to get next?

I have store credit. We have: Cel Damage, Dead or Alive 3, Halo, and Dave Mirra BMX.

What to get next?
No Obi-Wan or SSX Tricky (or convince me why yes )

Maybe Blood Wake, Amped, or Oddworld.

Get Silent Hill 2 if you like to be scared.

Amped = Tony Hawk = Dave Mirra. I gave this a no since we already have Dave Mirra (and you can build parks with Dave Mirra!!) and we just started playing it.

Oddworld - played a demo and was not impressed.

I haven't tried the others mentioned.

Silent Hill is similar to Resident Evil.

Blood Wake. Some have compared it to Twisted Metal but on water. I say it's different. You don't just shoot other boats. There is a variety of missions (escort, search, defend, destroy, etc.). Different weather conditions from calm to monsoon which will alter your gameplay.

If you want to learn more about it, check out the official website.
Blood Wake Official website.

Actually I might just get that one! Thanks! Is it really hard? This would be the "WaveRace"-type game to get - I'm trying to get a diverse range (hence we already got Dave Mirra not gonna get Tony Hawk or Amped until they are $30 or so). I was thinking WaveRace but this just might win. Is it Halo-type where you can go on the "game" or just have a 4-player shootout? I'm starting to really enjoy those.

BTW Dave Mirra BMX RULES !!!!

1) There are three levels of difficulty: Ensign, Captain, and Admiral. I'm not sure what makes one level more difficult than the other but at least you have a choice like in Halo.

2) Yes. You can play the single player missions or you can play what is called "Battle Mode" in the game. This is where you can play multiplayer with up to three people or three bots or any combination of those. For example, two players and two bots or three players and one bot. A bot (in case you don't know) is a computer controlled player.....a ro'bot' if you will. This would have been a very cool feature if they included it in Halo.

Click the link I provided above. You will be very impressed.
