The original Xbox made its debut in 2001 with one of the best launches dubbed ‘Halo’. However, it was only around for four years which is relatively short in console terms. Sadly most of these series are no more, but there are a number available today as digital downloads and known as the best original Xbox games. Some of these include;
1. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
This is a stealth action game mastered on several levels. The single player, multiplayer and co-op single player which is entirely a different game. This game allows players a lot of freedom of movement and you can go guns-blazing or get-rid of your foes. Players are staged against each other either as gunmen or spies. Spies are meant to achieve a particular objective as gunmen try to stop them.
2. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Before this Xbox game veered off into a more serious angle it depicted viciousness and rags to riches excesses. San Andreas not only gives you an entire fictitious state with three distinct cities but also small towns in between and an open countryside.
It features a compelling story with local gangs fighting over neighborhoods in Los Santos which flares up to major crime with VTOL jets, jetpacks and flashy real estate.
These are some of the best original Xbox games with insane action that you can still enjoy today.
3. Halo 2
This game can be described as combat perfected. The campaign multi-player and graphics all come together and have made Halo 2 hold a special place in the fans across the world. The first game was quite successful as a multiplayer game, but in later years pro gamers have opted for the pistol. Halo 2 broadened the scope of viable weapons and took the original game a notch higher.
4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
This is considered one of the best RPGs ever and brought forth an amazing universe that lived up to the iconic Star Wars. This game allows players to choose the light side and become a heroic Jedi or work as an evil Sith Lord on the dark side. This game set forth the stage for titles such as Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
5. Halo: Combat Evolved
This is a Bungie Studios first-person shooter science fiction video game and the first in the Halo series. Its focused on John-117 and the crew of the UNSC Pillar of Autumn who while fleeing from the Fall of Reach, stumble upon the Forerunner Halo Installation 04, later to be entangled into a fierce battle against the flood and covenant. This game is considered a classic and one of the most popular games on Xbox with over eight million copies sold.
6. Ninja Gaiden
This is one of the most prized games in the history of Xbox. Ninja Gaiden is a brutally intense game that has lived up to its lofty expectations . From the moment you begin your only option is to be good and fast at it with a reward of being able to play an engrossing action adventure.
