Be it backwards compatibility or stuffed somewhere in the Games on Demand service via Xbox Live, these are titles that shouldn’t be missed, regardless of being on the Xbox or not.
I fully agree that they need to bring back Mechassault onto the Xbox 360 in terms off adding a patch for backwards compatibility. I would love to play that game, especially if they allowed us to do it online as well. Actually scratch that, how about they make Mech Assault on the Xbox 360 :)
All the original Xbox Live servers were closed down for the Xbox.
Sadly, it's true. But I wouldn't say no to a next-gen Mechassault, which a reboot is supposedly in the works I believe.
you can still enjoy the single player aspect. I like mechassault, crimson skies, panzer dragoon orta, halo games, black but sadly...can't enjoy MGS2 substance unless i pull out the big old box. Why that didnt get a bc patch is beyond me. Could it be..duh duh DUH...sony blocked it through deals with konami? Yeah..that is just the conspiracy theory mel gibson inside me trying to sneak out.
... the game they need to bring back is rallisport Challenge 2! The greatest racegame of last-gen!
That game was ahead of its time.
Theif III deadly shadows, quite possibly the best stealth action game ever and a great story. I'm super happy that a Theif IV is being made finally for the Xbox 360. I'll be first in line.
I still own both Mechassault 1 & 2...I thought they were both BC. I think they are working on a title but why so long...here's a trailer for Mechwarrior, it looks awesome.The trailer is from 2009..weird how the Nintendo DS had a Mechassault game???. http://www.youtube.com/watc... FPS Black is highly recommended. One of the best FPS's with excellent graphics and destructible environments that came out ( '05 ) at the end of last gen. If you want to see where MW2 blatantly stole there ideas like the Gulag from, check it out. The vids don't do it justice... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2 was/is still a great looking game. Way ahead of it's time as were many Star Wars games...sadly, Pandemic is closed now. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's a good list, but just play KOTOR 1/2 on any PC instead; the framerate gets too unstable playing it in BC.
Is Shenmue 2 compatible? If it is than I highly recommend it.
Hope this helps. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/g...
shame they never made the otogi games bc. at least call of cthulhu is.
DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!!! Otogi was the best and only game on the original xbox worth playing! I'd do backflips if they allowed us to play it on 360, seriously!!! +bubble
Panzer Dragoon Orta, holla ^^
Ha, I knew Kotor would be on the list. Damn right. Kotor was the Mass Effect of last generation, and I think it was much better than Mass Effect 1&2. Lightsabers, need I say more?
Jade Empire is my favorite Xbox game and its still my favorite Bioware game. CHECK IT OUT
No shenmue 2 in it :(
KOTOR 1 & 2 Jade Empire Halo 1 & 2 Ninja Gaiden Shenmue 2 Jedi Academy Probably a few others as well, nice list.
Jade Empire would not work on my 360 at all. I still have it hoping one day to be able to play it.
Meh never was a fan of the 360 BC tbh. I'd much rather play these games on my old Xbox or on my PC. (no offence to the games as all of these are on my list of favourites last gen but i really think they messed up the BC on the 360 with all the glitches some games have. Imo the only console that did BC right was the Wii)
Serious Sam! Why isn't this listed? Even though I have SSHD FE and waiting for SSHD SE, there's just something arcade and brilliant about the XBOX port of both of the first games rolled into one. Armed and Dangerous; Probably one of the finest and funniest pure third person shooters since MDK, why? Because it's made by the team of MDK. It has bad framerate issues by the time you get the jetpack though. Unreal Championship 2; Odd experiment of a console UT style game built ground up for 360, not really a sequel of Unreal Championship in any way, but a great UT game by itself. Melee, swap to third person action from first person, adrenaline combos, excellent game made before Epic went rotten inside. Oh yeah, and you can unlock Raiden from Mortal Kombat...mad crossover or WHAT? Doom 3; It works, it also works better than when on XBOX. Excellent port of an excellent game. DoA Ultimate (1&2) and Dead or Alive 3. Munches Oddysee; Yeah, it has bad sound and framerate issues, like Halo:CE, but it's still kind of playable. I wish MS got Full Metal Chaos working on the 360. I've always had an urge to play that mad, Japanese game.
Hell yes! Doom3 and Unreal Championchip 2! And still great graphics. Let's hope for a UC3.
I tried playing ESPN2K5 and it was horrible. Halo 2 works perfect though. Strange............
Haha, I remember the first ever Ghost Recon game for the original Xbox. It was funny how there was no gun shown on the screen..
It's a good list. Just add Black and Doom3.
no jedi academy or jade empire?
Fahrenheit Max Payne 2: The Fall Of Max Payne Dreamfall All classics.
It would be nice if the warriors worked on the 360. I can't play it now that sucks... I never beat it and would have like to do so.
IF u havent played KOTOR 1 and 2 play them ASAP
I see a lack of Shenmue 2 and Ninja Gaiden Black... but they put in Mortal Kombat Deception? ... I'm not the only one confused by this, am I?
Stranger Wrath I would say thats a must, still got Crimson Skies,Black,Psyconauts and a few others, still play the old Xbox (few weeks ago lol)just as well can't get the boy off XboxLive long enough to play myself :(
