More Xbox 360 backward compatibility video games have been added to the Xbox One. While we have never played any of the four added, we can almost say they don’t look like terrible titles although we’ve never heard about them before. Just don’t expect them to be masterpieces.
The games that were added were Bloodforge, Go! Go! Break Steady, GripShift, and Mars: War Logs.
If you’re looking for an M-rated title, then Bloodforge might be a good choice. It’s a 2012 title about a barbarian on a quest for revenge against the Celtic Gods. It’s clearly a God of War copy, though it doesn’t seem to be a worthy one if the reviews are to be believed.
As for Go! Go! Break Steady, it’s a puzzle game that appears to be the most fun game of the bunch. The game managed to garner favorable ratings from critics and players alike, so we hope to see a sequel in the years to come. This might be unlikely due to the game being released back in 2008.
By the name alone, one should be able to tell that GripShift is a racing game, but it is unlike most racing games in that players race their cars on weird and unusual tracks.
Mars: War Logs is a role-playing video game set on Mars. In this world, factions fight over water here and the primary player finds himself caught between all the madness. Furthermore, the planet’s radioactive waves give birth to strange creatures, and as expected, the main character will have to deal with them.
Overall, these are not bad games, but they aren’t great either. The puzzle game is probably the only one from the bunch we can recommend along with the God of War copy.
