Another Xbox One Backward Compatible Game Now Available

It's time to clean up the streets again, Agent. Crackdown joins the Xbox One enhanced line-up.


Microsoft has added another Xbox 360 game to its ever-growing roster of backwards compatible games available on Xbox One. This time it's Crackdown, the Realtime Worlds game from 2007 that kicked off a franchise. The open-world action game puts you into the shoes of a super-powered Agent in a city overrun by criminal cartels. As the name implies, you crack down on them.

It joins The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Forza Horizon, and Fable Anniversary as the latest of the enhanced games on Xbox One X. Those all emulate at a higher quality than on a standard Xbox One, and you can now choose whether to play them with enhanced graphics or to see the original visuals. You can find this option in the Xbox One X Settings menu. This brings the grand total of enhanced Xbox One X games up to 11, with other luminaries like Halo 3 and Skate.
