It's amazing that some of the biggest news surrounding the Xbox brand isn't what's new being made for the system, but the old games that are being made playable on the newer consoles. With that being said, five classic Xbox games have been brought up to date so that they can be played on the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and soon the Xbox One X.
Gamespot is reporting that four out of the five games are Xbox Live Arcade titles. You can download and play them all right now if you already owned them on your Xbox 360 but wanted to play them on your Xbox One. The games include the Xbox 360's Indiana Jones-inspired, and first-person rip-off of Uncharted called Deadfall Adventures. This game also happens to be one of the free games during the Xbox Live Gold Games With Gold November line-up. So if you already owned it you'll be able to download and play it right now, but if you don't own a copy but would like to, just make sure your Xbox Live subscription is active and you'll be able to grab it during the month of November for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
The first Xbox Live Arcade game, Mutant Storm Reloaded, it's a top-down arcade shooter. This is not a game that most Xbox One users will be clamoring to download, but if you already own a digital copy it wouldn't hurt to grab it while it's available... assuming you have money to spare.
The second game out of the four Xbox Live Arcade games is 0 Day Attack On Earth. This is another game you probably missed out on given that it came out back in 2009 when a bunch of other much better games released for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii, and so it was easy to forget about this isometric, twin-stick arcade shooter. Both Mutant Storm Reloaded and 0 Day Attack on Earth did not review well with gamers or critics.
The third of the four Xbox Live Arcade games is Yosumin! Live, a puzzle game that came out back in 2009 for the Xbox 360 as well. The game was a small match-title, nothing too big or too special.
Last but not least is Girl Fight. This was a game that just kind of dropped quietly into existence during the twilight years of the Xbox 360 and PS3. Majesco Entertainment published the game back in 2013 as a cheap 3D fighting game for the home consoles. The hook for the game was that it was supposed to be a sexy and risque fighter featuring an all-female cast of characters, almost like a rival to Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja's Dead or Alive series, which is renown for its risque femme fatales.
Girl Fight, however, ended up falling off the radar pretty quickly because of its shallow gameplay and lack of content, something that actually isn't an issue in Dead or Alive games.
Some gamers didn't mind the low-quality graphics, low-budget presentation and simplistic fighting mechanics since they enjoyed the all-female roster of sexy fighters. However, a lot of baring of the skin wasn't enough to win over reviewers.
All five games are available right now as backwards compatible titles for the Xbox One.
