God of War II is out and highly rated across the board. It's great to see a high-quality title being released at the end of a console's lifespan.
Some may say that Zelda: Twilight Princess was the Gamecube's closeout title, but that release was more of a courtesy since it was released & marketed as a Wii launch title. If you took that away, the last previous big-name title for the cube was probably Metroid Prime II, released long before the cube was officially laid to rest.
As for the Xbox...were there any high-profile titles released near the end of the Xbox's lifespan?
