Today, Microsoft is adding two more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, which consists of games that were originally made for the Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles. Today's additions are LEGO Star Wars II and Tropico 4.
Lately, Microsoft has been pretty consistent about adding two games to the list every Tuesday, although it didn't last week. The last games to be added were Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 two weeks ago.
Here are today's additions:
LEGO® Star Wars® II: The Original Trilogy reunites the fun and endless creativity of LEGO with the epic story, heroic characters, and exciting action of the Star Wars universe. In this highly anticipated follow-up game, follow the tongue-in-cheek, brick-based action through all three epic films of the original Star Wars Trilogy.
The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers -- and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account. Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions – including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out. Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration. Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your burgeoning island and post your dream creation on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator Ranking on the online leaderboards.
If you're looking for new games on the cheap, you should also be claiming your Games with Gold every month, which offers four free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Among this month's offers are Overcooked! (Xbox One) and Hitman: Blood Money (Xbox 360), which you have until the end of the month to claim, and Victor Vran (Xbox One), which is available until November 15.
