Best Xbox Games

The very best games available for the original Xbox gaming console.

The Top Ten

1 Halo 2

By the time this came out, I wondered why they even bothered making other shooters. I would play this for days whenever I could. It was a blast! This game is more fun than black ops, ghosts, and advanced warfare, and it was made in 2004! I don't know how many hours I spent playing levels on legendary to collect all the skulls, played multiplayer for hundreds of hours. This game truly shines.

Network a few Xboxes, gather together a dozen or so friends, and 6 hours later you'll wonder why they even bothered to make other games.

Forget multiplayer, this has the best campaign, story and soundtrack of all time. Don't know why everyone cries about the ending - cliffhangers are great! Better than Halo 3 in every way. Oh and it also has the greatest multiplayer of all time.

I never had a Original Xbox, but looking at it just made me want to give it a shot. - Gehenna

2 Halo: Combat Evolved

To the other person that mentioned "Halo 2 doesn't have a level that can compare to Assault on the Control Room or Two Betrayals", THANK YOU. I couldn't agree more. I go by single player experience when voting, and the original Halo's is second to none.

I Love halo, and this is the game that started it all. Very few can compare to its graphics at the time, the story, the soundtrack, the adventure, the multiplayer. This game BLEW ME AWAY.
When my brother first picked this up, I was unhappy because science fiction and fighting aliens was not my thing. I ended up becoming a bigger fan than he is. This is one heck of a game!

Halo 2 may have better multiplayer, but Halo 1's single player is better, especially in terms of level design. Halo 2 doesn't have a level that can compare to Assault on the Control Room or Two Betrayals.

This game is so fun like really fun.
I like it more than Halo 2!

3 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Free to roam and do whatever you want with an attitude. or you could follow the long storyline by doing missions and finishing the game. whatever you choose its a lot of fun

The coolest game cause the map is so big

San Andreas grants a lot of features to the players and has an outstanding audio quality!

After Halo 2, this game is best on Xbox. But all in all, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is best game of all times.

4 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

I do not understand why game companies do not produce these kinds of games, ye it is one of the best kind...

And, I'm to sad because there no more star wars game in xbox :(

There are a lot of Star Wars games on Xbox, like Outcast, Clone Wars, etc.

It is by Lucas Studios and my friend is called Lucas also great game

I really wish there were more games like this (by the way I have all the games in the top three at the time of this post all of them are really fun but this is my favorite).

Still my favourite game after all these years

5 Burnout 3: Takedown

The last good Burnout game before the series completely lost its mojo. This one still had consequences for hitting other cars which made it way more exciting.

Dang I forgot this was original Xbox not Xbox 360. My friend and I gamed on this back in 2009 and man, it was so much fun. Those were the days...

Love the Cars + stunts + crashes

6 Fable

Fable TLC better than 2 and 3.

this is by far the best most well thought out most exciting game that I have ever played!

I remember watching my dad play this

I don’t know how to get in

7 Ninja Gaiden

This game is just pure awesomeness! Ninja Gaiden for the original Xbox is one of the best looking and greatest games of all time.

Graphics, Action, Fun, Depth, Dificult (o god the dificulty)
this game has everything!

I love this game, it's like metal gear solid mixed with somewhat hack and slash fighting, but it's more one on one

Its The Only Decent Game On This List Besides Burnout 3

8 JSRF- Jet Set Radio Future

Great graphics, awesome gameplay, amazing soundtrack, an all around enjoyable, unique game and a perfect companion to the origional!

This game is awesome! People say it's underrated. That's because they just suck at it.

This is the most underrated game I've ever played. This game is almost flawless.

My childhood!

9 Star Wars: Battlefront II

One of my favorite games of all time. The graphics have not aged too well, but if you play it on the Xbox one x than it is a lot better.

Awesome but I do like the original battlefront also I have a discord server for bf1 pc and we play at 8:00 pm CST

Spent too many hours to count on this game. Easily my favorite xbox game of all time.

This game is fun, I played this the most on my xbox

10 Tomb Raider: Legend

How is this not on top? After that flop Angel of Darkness, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos did amazing! Story is flawless, boards are amazing and awesome character development. More people need to take a break from first-person shooters, and play this!

Vote for this. This is one of the best games I ever played. Lara is awesome, they added new features like a grapple hook, and the level design is AMAZING. Buy this, it's awesome! Trust me, you won't be disappointed...

One of the best TR games, EVER. if it wasn't for this, I wouldn't have other TR games. Heck, I wouldn't even have half the games I have now. This inspired me to buy more video games.

The Contenders

11 Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
12 The Simpsons: Hit and Run

The Simpsons is a great T.V. show but the games are even better and this is one of the best Simpson games

Fun, Fun, and more fun!

This game should be number 1 is so much fun

The best Simpsons game

13 Knights of the Old Republic II

I felt that this was overall better than its prequel in every way, from converting your followers to being able to finally use Battle Meditation in combat. Sure some of the force powers may as well be non-cannon, but who cares? It was a fun game that had much variety within it. To this day, I find new routs and dialogue options that have I had never even known existed with each playthrough.

I heard that this was a very disappointing video game sequel!

Play it any way you want and it's still the best.

Its good star wars style RPG with a good story

14 Dead or Alive III

Next to halo probably sold more Xbox's than any game available at launch.

15 Kill.Switch
16 Soul Calibur 2
17 Panzer Dragoon Orta
18 Sims 2

Love sims, its better on the computer but still good on xbox and ps2.

you get to walk around and it rocks!

Well made game really realistic and just fantastic hashtag loving it

19 Scooby-Doo Mystery Mayhem

So great. Love going around the different levels catching ghosts and monsters in the Tomb of Doom!

This one should be good too. It should be like 3 or 4. When you play the game make comments about it here.

20 Elder Scrolls: Morrowind

Most underratted RPG on Xbox.

In my opinion, one of the best games of all time.

One of the best elder scrolls made.

Its way better than skyrim,The best elder scrolls ever.


21 Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge

This game is friggin AWESOME its so underrated. Its THE best game for XBox. Anyone who owns an XBox needs to have this.

22 Flat Out 2
23 Thrillville

I have this game, it's pretty fun and perfect for parties because it has minigames that can be 4 players

24 Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

I have this game

25 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The best Grand Theft Auto game

I'll be selling it along with my PS2 slim and games.

26 Destroy All Humans 2

What kind of sad human being would play this atrocity?

27 Gunvalkyrie
28 Need for Speed Most Wanted

This has to be the best racing game of all time let alone one of the best Xbox games, This game is full of awesome street races and cop chases, it's all so epic.

Seriously as low as this is on the list this should be in the top ten, the game planned out great and has a great story to it, what beats that.

I still play this game all the time. Trying to get every car from the different Blacklist racers has been a challenge. Even though I've probably played through the game 10 times I have never felt like it was repeating itself. Great game

This game is awesome because of the blacklist 15, they just make the game cool cause you can win there ride and get cool things to add to your car.

29 Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict
30 Star Wars Obi-Wan

My favorite game for the original Xbox! It is so much fun and difficult at the same time. I would play at at 3 years old and know exactly what to do!

31 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

This is a good game I played it a lot

32 Metal Slug 3
33 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
34 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords
35 Spider-Man 2

At the Time this was awesome Free Roam!

36 Fuzion Frenzy
37 Destroy All Humans
38 Fable: The Lost Chapters

It's like Fable, but more stuff and a better, more clear ending.

39 Grand Theft Auto Double Pack

Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City in one pack. How could you go wrong?

40 Burnout 2: Point of Impact
41 Metal Wolf Chaos
42 Grand Theft Auto III
43 Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse

Be the Zombie. Kill the humans. Get your woman… and turn her into a zombies

44 Jade Empire

Amazing game, incredibly underrated and an epic story (as to be expected from bioware).

45 Forza Motorsport

A great start of the Forza Motorsport Journey!

46 Star Wars Battlefront

This was my first fps game, and it was worth every penny. Amazing for the time period

47 Tony Hawk's Underground

I used to have this

I have this game for my PS2.

48 Shenmue II
49 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent
50 Conker: Live & Reloaded

One time my mom almost bought me this game as a kid, I was disappointed then I wouldn't get to play it, now I can see why they put the 17+ rating there.

How come this did not make it in the top ten

Bad port of a great game. Get the N64 version instead
