July 2003 was not the best month with only really the OG Xbox Exclusive KOTOR really standing out and putting Bioware for me on the map. I've played it on Xbox One recently and it does look good due to the emulation but I don't think it holds up to well.

We also got a bunch of licence games Pirates of the Caribbean, Charlie's Angels, The Italian Job, The Great Escape, Robocop, Butt-Ugly Martians that if you were only on PS2 it was a bad month.

If you had a GameCube much like now you got a great Mario Sports game with Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour that does hold up well still and I don't think we've had a better Golf game in the Mario Universe since.

I still love KOTOR I cant get enough of it, I was so thankful that it was added to XBOX one as it means I dont need to set the old xbox up just for a bash at it.

The Great Escape

Wait... as in the film from the 60s? What bout of madness caused somebody to jump on that as the latest hot property for a video game tie-in? Laughing

Yeah based on the film, I don't know why we got it.

I know we've had later licensed games such as Godfather which have been good, that I think you can do a older thing but doing it good is the thing.

That Italian Job game on the PS2/Xbox/GameCube is great! It was reviewing poorly at the time because it was a short, tiny game selling for full price, but these days it sells for virtually hee-haw - even with the GameCube premium, it's only a quid at CEX. Well worth finding!

Mario Golf came out the summer after this, I remember that well. I think July 2003 was when I was starting to get back into the N64, as there was so little out on the up-to-date machines.

Yeah, I ended up with the Italian Job as well - I think it didn't help that MidTown Madness was a bit big around that time.

@kerr9000 I love the Last Man on Earth idea! Anything that lets you play as a polygonal Vincent Price has got to be good.

Hey, this gives me an idea for a topic...
