As Purge said in the weekly buying thread, some select games from the original Xbox are coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility this week. And according to MS all the games run in 1080p with higher and/or smoother framerates.
The official list of Original Xbox titles has been released and will be available Oct 24:
- BloodRayne 2
- Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
- Dead to Rights
- Fuzion Frenzy
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
- King of Fighters Neowave
- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
- Red Faction II
- Sid Meier’s Pirates!
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
That's a pretty great list of games, even though there are plenty of classics missing. They say another wave should be coming in spring 2018, so hopefully more favorites hit then.
Other than MechAssault that Purge mentioned, the other ones I can think that I'd love to see (because I still have their boxes on my shelf for 360 back compat) are:
- Burnout 2
- Burnout 3
- Test Drive: Eve of Destruction (still the best derby career game)
- Hulk Ultimate Destruction
- Godzilla Save the Earth
- Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee
