I recently got an original big old xbox to play Stranger's Wrath again. (I think it's getting re-released, but it was $30 at goodwill, so I don't mind having another system around)
And I was trying to find lists of the best non-BC (or poorly emulated on 360) Xbox games, but nothing was coming up. (and the search function here seems to not work)
So this is what I can think of off the top of my head - any other recommendations?
Unplayable on 360 B/C and better than the PS2 version? Maybe?
Both of these run like shit on 360 - and they're stellar games. I think I might go for the PC versions, though. Kotor 2 got a fan patch recently if I ever want to play that.
Same deal with Jade Empire, but then there's a PC version of that too.
Both of these are not Backwards Compatible. i might pick them up because I quite enjoyed Hell's Highway.
I dunno how much this is worth re-visiting, but I really enjoyed this game when I found it cheap back in 2005 or so.
This is what those batman guys were doing before they made the 2009 GOTY. Good reviews, but I dunno how it aged.
And some others I've found-
(the gamecube version has mario, luigi etc. but probably worse controls)
Any other underrated games I've missed? I mostly got the xbox to fool around with hacking it for the downstairs tv, but it'd be nice to pick up some forgotten xbox 1 games.
