10 Xbox 360 Games Not Backward Compatible | Easy Online Work

There are a lot of great games left on the Xbox 360 that have not received compatibility with the current generation of consoles. Which ones would benefit from a return?

The Xbox 360 was the dominant console of its generation of consoles – in part because it was released about a year before the Wii and PS3. But Microsoft did not bathe in fabulous profits, because the story with the “red ring of death” hit hard both on the company’s image and on the pocket. And later, two other consoles joined the struggle for the attention of gamers, which have shown good sales figures throughout their existence.

Nevertheless, many believe that the leader of this generation was precisely the Xbox 360. It’s all about the vast library of games, which included exclusives and projects from third-party studios, and which almost completely moved to the Xbox One and subsequent consoles. But some hits, unfortunately, were left behind, and this collection is dedicated to them.

Binary Domain

The game was created by people from the Yakuza development team at Sega, although the project itself has nothing to do with the Yakuza universe. This is a team shooter set in a futuristic setting, which tells the story of the uprising of androids trying to destroy the world.

Binary Domain could be the best Terminator game if its creators bought out the appropriate license. But even without being tied to a well-known franchise, she clings with her comically serious plot and a handful of bright heroes who regularly give out overly pretentious cues.

Max Payne 3

This year, the Max Payne franchise celebrates its 20th anniversary, and so far only the first part has received a re-release on modern consoles – namely on the PS4 as part of the PS2 Classics line. The second part did not go beyond the PC and Xbox of its generation.

The same applies to Max Payne 3, which was released on PC and Xbox 360. At the moment, it, like the second part, can be purchased on Steam, but many Xbox One owners would be happy to celebrate the anniversary of the franchise by playing the trilogy on modern consoles.

Alpha Protocol

Oddly enough, the game is missing from the Xbox One library, especially since Microsoft now owns Obsidian Entertainment. Alpha Protocol was a unique experiment for Obsidian, as the dialogue masters and RPG mechanic decided to try their hand at the genre of spy thrillers.

The developers should have postponed the release of the game in order to eliminate all sorts of bugs and polish it to a shine, but even in its raw state, Alpha Protocol found a lot of fans. At the moment, the game cannot be found in any of the digital stores, not even on Steam, so we can only hope for a miracle.

The Lord Of The Rings: War In The North

This half-forgotten RPG can easily be called the best Lord of the Rings work since the film trilogy, even if we take into account the Shadow of Mordor series.

It is designed both for solo passage and for playing in the company of two friends, and the plot of War In The North unfolds parallel to the main events of the trilogy. Now it can no longer be found in digital services, most likely due to the expiration of the license. And this means that you can not really count on a re-release of the game in the near future.

Mortal Kombat

Most players know Mortal Kombat, released in 2011, by this simple name. In fact, this is the ninth part of the series, but the developers decided to drop the numbers in the title, so as not to scare off the new audience. Instead, they used a time travel trick, effectively rewriting the entire lore of the universe from scratch.

The plot relaunch of the series, which has stretched for 10 years, has proved to be very popular among fans, thanks to innovative mechanics for fighting games and a storytelling. But despite all the popular love, neither Mortal Kombat 2011 nor Mortal Kombat vs DC have ever received backward compatibility with current generation consoles.

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3

None of the parts of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors have yet acquired backward compatibility. And of all the titles in the two main series and spin-off lineup, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 deserves a return the most.

Since the anime-based game was released under license, Koei Tecmo will have to renegotiate with the copyright holders if it decides to publish the project on new platforms. By the way, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 looks great even by today’s standards due to the fact that the graphics in the game uses the technology of sel-shading.

Lollipop Chainsaw

Lollipop Chainsaw came out in a very unfortunate period, and the situation was aggravated by the presence of bugs and the general flaw in the project, which ultimately led to average ratings and a lack of interest from the gaming community.

Nevertheless, fans of strange, but charming and creative games have always been enough, and it is for them that the creators should think about re-publishing the perky zombie action. After all, it was not for nothing that director James Gunn translated the dialogues into English, making them even funnier than in the original.

The Saboteur

At a time when open-world sandboxes abounded, the Xbox 360 saw the latest attempt in this generation to compete with the Grand Theft Auto franchise. The Saboteur is set in Nazi-occupied Paris during World War II.

The game world was painted in black and white by default, but as the city was liberated from the invaders, the areas became colored again. Many gamers called this the best mechanic of The Saboteur, but it is also remembered for its pleasant gameplay. Currently, its PC version is available in the EA digital store.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Based on the mediocre film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it turns out to be a surprisingly entertaining and addicting slasher. The fact is that the authors of the game were not shy about the cruelty and bloody scenes, which the film version of Wolverine lacked so much.

He, of course, behaves more modestly than the same Kratos, but this turned out to be quite enough for those who were unhappy with the film. Since the game was released under license, it will be very problematic to return it to the next generation platforms, unless, of course, Activision and Disney decide to agree.

50 Cent: Blood On The Sand

It may seem that the game does not belong on the list of dream re-releases, because many did not even know about its existence. However, she is able to interest only her setting. The creators of Blood On The Sand tried to make their answer to Call of Duty, starring 50 Cent and the rappers from G-Unit.

The plot revolves around 50 Cent himself, who, after performing somewhere in the Middle East, receives a royalty in the form of crystal skulls. Meanwhile, some terrorist cell declares a hunt for these jewels, so the rapper and his team have no choice but to declare war on the terrorists. As a result, it all adds up to a criminally underestimated cooperative shooter, which can be called one of the best in its genre in the era of the Xbox 360.
