Fanatec Speedster 3 Force Shock Wheel Review
Playing racing games with a wheel is one of the most exciting and satisfying ways to play games that I can think of. When you play with a high-end wheel like the Fanatec Speedster 3, the experience gets even that much better. This is hands down the best wheel you can get for the Xbox. It is a bit expensive, but the nearly perfect design and performance make the $150 price tag much easier to swallow. Read all about it right here.

Cabela's North American Adventures Review (X360)
Hunting games tend to be a little half-assed. Sorry, but someone needed to say it. The presentation is usually poor and there generally isn't much content available even if the core gameplay might be decent. Cabela's North American Adventures isn't like those other hunting games. It has solid presentation, fun gameplay, and actually has a ton of modes to enjoy. Without a doubt, Cabela's North American Adventures is the best hunting game on Xbox 360.
