    Default Installing to Hard-Drive, Your Reviews.

    With the majority of the community currently using just 20Gb of storage It is essential to know what's worth installing on the xbox hard-drive. I'm trying to compile a list of Hits and Misses for HDD installation, what games benefit from the installs, what have no difference, and what are plain awful.

    I will constantly update this post.

    To see a comprehensive list of game's and their install size, see Nodz86's thread [here]

    Feel free to debate a review if you have had a different experience.

    Game: [Game Name]
    Install Size: [Game Size]
    Comments: [Eg. Reduced Popup, Smoother textures]

    *In reccomending, think from the perspective of a 20Gig user, Is it worth removing all your videos and music etc.?

    that sounds good, the reason i made a new thread was due to the fact that yours doesnt show affect of install, only the raw size, I made this cause i installed the (bloody huge) GTAIV and found it the biggest waste of space ever. With this thread people can share advice and prevent themselves installing a king sized lemon.
