Best Xbox Games

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

The Top Ten

1 Halo 2 Halo 2 Product Image

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 Halo: Combat Evolved Product Image

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 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Product Image

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 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Product Image

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.

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

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

5 Burnout 3: Takedown Burnout 3: Takedown Product Image

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 Product Image

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

7 Ninja Gaiden Ninja Gaiden Product Image

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 JSRF- Jet Set Radio Future Product Image

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 Star Wars: Battlefront II Product Image

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.

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

Best game besides bf3

10 Tomb Raider: Legend Tomb Raider: Legend Product Image

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

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 Knights of the Old Republic II Product Image

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 Dead or Alive III Product Image

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

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

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

19 Scooby-Doo Mystery Mayhem Scooby-Doo Mystery Mayhem Product Image

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 Elder Scrolls: Morrowind Product Image

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 Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge Product Image
