Two More Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Out Now

Heavy metal and a little paint.


Xbox One's backward compatibility list has just received two new additions, including a cult favorite from Double Fine. The 2009 action-strategy game with a dose of metal influence, Brutal Legend, is the latest to join the line-up. It's flanked by Greg Hastings Paintball 2.

Brutal Legend was a relatively big-budget project from Double Fine, featuring the voices of Jack Black and Tim Curry along with a bigger, more ambitious campaign story than some of its other releases. The GameSpot Brutal Legend review gave kudos to its humorous writing and world-building, but noted that the side missions were a bit dull. Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is a smaller release, having gotten only a handful of mixed reviews on GameSpot sister site Metacritic.
