Microsoft's release of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary in November won't kick off a spate of HD remakes from the platform holder.
What games were " exclusive " to the Xbox that they could remake besides Forza? Jade Empire? The said part is I owned an Xbox and the only games I remember that weren't on the PS2 were Doom3 and the expansion... Fill me in..
there were some others...fable for example. but not a lot of good ones. however, the games that were multiplat ran much better on xbox. a franchise that sticks out in my mind is splinter cell which was far superior on the regular xbox ( http://www.youtube.com/watc... anyway, not sure what your point is. are you saying they don't have any games to remake? i suppose you're probably right. wait, wasn't dead or alive 3 and ultimate exclusive to xbox? fuzion frenzy, ninja gaiden, amped, oddworld, shenmue 2, morrowind, riddick (already got a sub-hd overhaul) well no worries, sony has plenty of hd remakes to sell us.
it's probably because they have nothing to remake
I would like a remake of Ninja Gaiden Black with no additions or changes. Just up to date graphics like they are doing with Halo HD. Then of course there is KOTOR, Jade Empire, Fable, Splinter Cell (why isn't this on Xbox 360, but on PS3) and so on...
No I was just wondering thats all and don't know why I got the disagrees for asking a question and not knowing every single game that was released on that system. Oh... I forgot Conker. But this is N4G....
Im sure there was more just none worth being remastered
There are some I wouldn't mind buying again, if they had a HD remake. Panzer Dragoon Orta, JSRF, Phantom Dust, Conker (although it is a remake), KUF (as the one we have on 360 sucks), MechAssault, Halo 2 and Deathrow. I guess that's pretty much it as far as exclusives go though. There's also a few multiplatform games, like the NHL Hitz, Freedom Fighters and Gladius. Now that I think about it, the Xbox didn't have that many great exclusives in the end, still, they were quality ones I guess.
@STK026 I'd love for a HD makeover for both KUF's, Conker would be nice if they bring multiplayer on live with it too and some reason would like Brute Force too.
Good point, The big black brick(Try saying that 3 times quickly) had some good exclusives but I can hardly think of many that would be worth a HD remake.
Crimson Skies, Mech Assualt, Ninja Gaiden (Though I suppose Sigma IS the HD remake), Steel Battalion, Project Gotham Racing, Halo 2, Dead or Alive, Panzer Dragoon, Jet Set Radio Future (though I think these were on Dreamcast?). Then you also have games that were also PC and 360 exclusive that deserve remakes: Oddworld Games, KOTOR, Republic Commando (would love to see a sequel), etc.
Otogi 1 + 2, Jet set Radio Future, Panzer dragoon Orta, Crazy taxi 3, Blinx 1 + 2, Conker live + reloaded, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Crimson skies, Dino Crisis 3 , Dead or Alive 3 + ultimate, Fable 1, Mech assault, Metal wolf chaos, Phantom Dust, Stubbs the Zombie, Voodoo vince....... I wouldn't mind proper remakes or sequels to any of those.
Xbox has come a looooong way in the games department.
Blinx would make a good XBLA series.
Theres acually a ot of awesome xbox games but most all are BC and still look great on a hd tv so it would be milking puting out hd remakes right and left unless they removed the BC of course (looking at u ps3). A lot are on xbl like beyond good and evil, halo, fable, indigo prophecy, jade empire exc. I want a kotor collection though, just bundle em and make it run smoother on 360, my kotor 2 is almost unplayable.
I would love a KOTOR 1 and Halo 2 remake. KOTOR was probably Biowares best game and still the best plot twist IMO.
In next console generation Xbox brand really needs new IP's, they can't rely on Halo, Forza and Gears forever. Don't get me wrong, those are awesome games but new IP's wont hurt eh? :)
I am surprised Halo 2 was not included in the Halo Anniversary edition. I never owned an orginal Xbox and would not mindplaying both games as an HD remake. Glad to hear ZOE is getting and HD remake. If Microsoft owns Rare why not do an HD remake of Killer Instinct or a new version of the game its been collecting dust for years they need to bring that one to light. Or Rare could bring back Jetforce Gemini unless Nintendo owns those IPs.
Isn't Jetforce Gemini on the XBLA?
Nope only Rare games on the arcade are both Banjo's, Perfect Dark and Jetpack. Would love JFG though, my favourite Rare game.
Oh ok, I mixed up Jetforce and Jetpack.
There waiting for Halo 2's Anniversary :P It is a better strategy instead of over populating the market with all these HD remakes, then again a few are heading to MS as well so :P
There are some nice little gems on the original Xbox. But none of them really are profilic enough to justify a remake for Microsoft, except maybe Fable.
I would like to see a remake or sequel to Stubbs the Zombie. I very overlooked gem, despite its short length.
