Best Xbox Games

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

The Top Ten

1 Halo 2

Double Kill, Triple Kill, Quadruple Kill. - GehennaTheSecond

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.

This is a good game. Try it out. A game from Bungie Studios in 2004 is the best. Halo 2 is the best Halo game of all time in my opinon. - Carly19781

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

2 Halo: Combat Evolved

Good way to start a franchise

It is not Halo 2 but it is still Halo - Carly19781

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

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.

3 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

For the Grove, fool!

Kids! Swearing alert! - Carly19781

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 - THEMASTER

the coolest game cause the map is so big - decorulez97

4 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. - HenchmanNo2

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

5 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

It is by Lucas Studios and my friend is called Lucas also great game - Carly19781

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. - myusernameisthis

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

6 Fable

I remember watching my dad play this - TerryThe_NES_Owner

I don’t know how to get in - Carly19781

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! - PlayboyX429

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. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

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

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 - doughnut

8 JSRF- Jet Set Radio Future

My all time favorite game! - TheDelBel

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.

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.

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

Love it

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

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 Newcomers

? Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
? NCAA Football 07 NCAA Football 07

Football games are great

I'm sorry I had to - TheInsomniac

College football is fun! GOOO! Missouri

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

Better than Conker

Fun, Fun, and more fun!

This game should be number 1 is so much fun

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. - QTANTOBA

Its good star wars style RPG with a good story - petelimppu

20 Fuzion Frenzy
21 Scooby-Doo Mystery Mayhem

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

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

22 Elder Scrolls: Morrowind


Most underratted RPG on Xbox.

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

One of the best elder scrolls made.

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

27 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The best Grand Theft Auto game

I'll be selling it along with my PS2 slim and games. - playstationfan66

28 Gunvalkyrie
29 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.
