    anyone experimented with their old games?

    i have found that some games dont run that great :(

    NHL 2004 for instance. the crowd flashes, the commentary blips and repeats itself and there is a huge lag in play that gives for a poor overall experience. any other games like this or is it just me?

    well the 360 really isent playing the game...it is emulating it...so with any emulation there is expected to be lag and other faults...

    i am keeping my old xbox so that i can play my xbox games on it....not on my 360...

    well games like halo i hear don't have any problems (mainly because so many people play it, and they wanted to make sure it works), but others don't quite play as good as the original

    Halo 2 is brilliant. There is hardly any difference to the original. as i didnt have live previously to the 360, I been getting some live time on it and quite frankly, the worst thing is all of the sad people who scream down the headset at you 'DIE MUTHA FUCKER!'

    the only thing i'm worried about is lag online as far as halo goes, but then again, the players connection has a huge affect

    What with the concerns of people with compatability issues, I'm going to start posting how well games have been converted in this thread. I'll start off by doing a few and it would be good if you can post how other games work in this thread as well. Also, lets just keep it to this thread ;)

    Baldur's Gate: Dark Aliiance 2
    Works perfectly

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds
    Works perfectly

    Crimson Skies
    Works perfectly

    Dead Or Alive 3
    Runs in 16:9 but freezes

    Forza Motorsport
    Works fine but the intro movie stutters a bit. Ingame there are some framerate issues

    Halo
    Works perfectly

    Halo 2
    Works perfectly

    SSX 3
    The game itself works perfectly. Strange "Hard Drive is unusable" error message when I save the game even though the save game is there on the HDD and it doesn't corrupt it!!!

    Brute Force
    Works perfectly- graphics look better

    Half-Life 2
    Works fine, has some framerate issues, more so than on the Xbox unfortunately.

    Super Monkey Ball Deluxe
    Works perfectly. The game plays better than on the Xbox thanks to the 360 controller's improved analogue sticks.

    Sonic Heroes
    Works perfectly

    Fable (Original)
    Runs perfectly

    GTA: San Andreas
    Loads faster than before but thats all I can tell ya at the moment, Graphics seem to look the same.

    Batman Begins

    Works perfectly (look very nice too)

    Ninja Gaiden
    Works almost perfectly. There's a small barely-noticeable stutter when enemies appear on the screen but otherwise it plays exactly the same as it did on the Xbox

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
    Works perfectly. Benefits from some slightly faster loading times

    Ghost Recon 2***
    Works perfectly

    Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike ***
    Works perfecty

    Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow ***
    Works perfectly

    Splinter Cell ***
    Works perfectly

    Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow ***
    Works perfectly

    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory ***
    Works perfectly

    GTA III
    Works perfectly, looks squashed onto screen

    GTA: Vice City
    Works perfectly

    XIII
    The actual game works perfectly, only but the cutscenes judder, jerk and stutter like mad for some reason.

    Fuzion Frenzy
    Works fine- although not as fast paced as i remeber it but it was only single player

    FIFA 2004
    Small lag, jittery comentary at times

    NHL 2004
    Huge Lag- so much so it has second pauses, Jittery comentary and Crowd flashes in and out. almost unplayable :(

    NHL Hitz 2003
    Perfect

    Shadow The Hedgehog
    Perfect

    Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
    Perfect

    Tony Hawks 4
    Perfect- Even looks better on a normal TV and feels like it loads quicker

    WWE RAW2: Ruthless Aggression
    Perfect in game, Laggy on Menus


    * I'll stop there as i got carried away and i got some feedback from another forum from people in my friendslist

    *** Tom Clancy Games prompt for a live update whick takes you back to the original dashboard if you try to login to Live. when the update is done, the 360 crashes. No sideeffects have been had from this. Be Warned though- It will probably crash
