Great Games That Are Still Best/Only On XBox

Recommended Posts


Many of the best games on Xbox have been ported to pc and/or wholly remastered for current gen consoles, and the OG Xbox is no longer the best way to play (eg Halo 2, Stranger's Wrath, etc.). I am looking for recommendations for great games which remain unavailable on PC and have not been substantially remade for current gen, thus making the Xbox still the best way to play. Examples:


-Conker Live and Reloaded

-Ninja Gaiden Black



-Crimson Skies

Please give me your recommendations. Thank you!!!

halo, very bad port for pc, many graphical effects missing

gta san andreas, missing many stuff, some graphic elements are bugged (not showing up, etc).

gta 3 and vice city, best graphics are on xbox.

call of cthullu, crappy port on pc

freedom fighters - proper 720p

scarface - don't run on multicore pc's, 720p

splinter cell - 3D

stubbs the zombie - don't work at all, only on winXP.

tony hawks pro skater games are superior on xbox, some of them support 720p.

many pc multiplat games are PS2 ports that are inferior to xbox, for example movie games like shrek. Sports games like fifa. Funny thing that some games on xbox are crappy ps2 ports, example: mafia, vietcong.

xbox have 3D sound benefit, because for PC you need to have EAX compatible sound card

xbox controller itself is a good benefit: analog triggers, thumb stick layout.

pc multiplat game heavily depends from what system is ported, so it's a mixed bag.

Now that's entirely subjective, isn't it?

For my simple tastes, Sega GT 2002 and Sega GT Online are still reason #1 to keep my XBoxes alive 🙂

Thief Deadly Shadows.

Tenchu: Return From Darkness (expanded and best looking version of the original release Tenchu: Wrath Of Heaven)

Dead Or Alive Ultimate and DOA3 (DOA 2 using the DOA3 engine - Xbox games don't get any better looking than these).

Genma Onimusha (expanded but yet again best version of a game that did have other console versions).

Likewise all the Splinter Cell and Hitman games.

      Hi all, just wanted to start a thread regarding my Crystal Xbox Original as its modded with Evox chip and only loads the Evox boot when the chip is enabled and I also press the LED pins with my finger (very odd, no?) I've included an image to show what I mean. The chipped Evox works in this case but wondered if there's anmything I should do?
      I'm also considering selling it once working. Thanks and cheers for the advice.

      Just picked up 3 defective Xbox 360s for $5. Hoping the RF boards will be good to connect 360 controllers to the og

      Hello everyone,
      i'm new on the scene and a month ago i started with my first modded xbox project. I'm from the Netherlands and have a pal 1.6 hardmod xbox with EVOX M8 bios.
      I make it to ntsc so i can use all hd modes and using the pound hdmi cable. My goal is to have a xbox with all games that where release on it on 1 disc. So i put a Seagate 3TB disc so i get the max of 2TB and use xbmc4gamers as dash. I found almost all games now, its a pretty challenge to fit them all (using soms ntsc instead of pal games or deleting all un needed files ).
      i'm now in the mode to test al games (i start the game and go to the first level) and now i''m on the letter c with the club football games. There are around 36 titles (2003 and 2005 versions) but non of them starting. When i started it it goes to a black (blank) screen and nothing happend. I try different sources from games, all the same. Patching ith with 480p loader has no effect. I can find an ACL patch and default patching doesn't work. I don't think it's a image problem, because all club football editions don't start. All other games (so far i tested, now about 200 games) are starting fine (sometimes with patching or finding an other source\version of the game).
      Any idea how i can start these games to work?
