Ever since Xbox One backward compatibility was announced, gamers have been asking for a few high-profile games. While the majority of requests revolve around the Call of Duty franchise, the Lego franchise has been another hot series. Today, Xbox Live's Director of Programming, Larry Hryb, announced that Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy and Tropico 4 were now backward compatible.
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is the continuation of the hilarious games. They're spoofs on the Star Wars franchise and involve building mechanics.
Tropico 4 is a city-building simulator which places you in the shoes of a dictator in charge of a small island. While you have to make sure the citizens are content, rigging elections, suppressing the press, and being revered are also part of the experience.
Be sure to check out Tropico 4 in particular if you're a fan of the franchise. The Tropico games aren't just cult classics, they're also a lot of fun to play.
