Today, Xbox's Larry Hryb announced that Xbox 360 games Lego Indiana Jones 2 and Split/Second are now backward compatible. While both of the games aren't the heavy-hitters many customers were expecting, they're still a lot of fun.
Lego Indiana Jones 2
Lego Indiana Jones 2 combines the creative aspect of Lego bricks with the charm and wit of legendary archeologist Indiana Jones. The game follows Dr. Jones' escapades from the jungles of South America to the Peruvian Ruins. He must stop evildoers from getting their hands on powerful artifacts which could change the course of history. One of the most unique aspects of the game has to be how players can build their own levels to create a custom experience.
Split/Second is a unique racing game which puts players in a fictional reality TV show. Participants race for money and glory by pulling off amazing stunts such as jumps, drifting, and drafting. Just like many other arcade racing titles out there, special powers can be triggered which create obstacles for other players, detours, or alter the layout of the track entirely. While the game may be a little dated, it's still great fun given your track-altering abilities.
Be sure to check out these games on Xbox One if you're looking for a break between those "AAA" experiences. Even to this day they remain enjoyable.
