I've never played any of these original Xbox games. I only ever had Halo and Need for Speed on the original Xbox. Which do you recommend?

I love good FPS games. Any of these worth buying for a new player? (I only played Half Life 2 for the first time last year and loved it so age isn't a factor, just playability.)

I also am a big Star Wars fan. How does KOTOR hold up?

If you're a Star Wars fan, KOTOR is a must-play. It doesn't look very pretty today, but it's still one of Bioware's best games

I love good FPS games.

BLACK was a very good shooter that should have received a sequel, but unfortunately never did. The biggest highlight is the environmental destruction, I still remember seeing the commercial years back for it:

BLACK has maybe my favorite gun sounds from any shooter ever.

Ninja Gaiden Black is one of the best action games of all time. It's really that good.
I love the friends I've gathered together on this thin raft.

Exactly! That too, the weapon graphics and animations were definitely on point as we'll. I went to search for a video that shows it, but this trailer does it justice.

Note the spent shell casings and how the shells are actually ejected out the port. I think they purposely made the AK-47 have the port on the left to showcase the graphics and animations.

They says there's no such thing as a good movie adaptation of a videogame and while this may be true there is such a thing as a good video game adaptation of an action movie and its name is BLACK.

Ninja Gaiden Black and KOTOR are both extremely great games, neither should be missed.

Dead to Rights was a fun slow motion based third person shooter. I always found it a fun alternate to Max Payne back in the day. I used to love it, but I have no idea how well it will have aged.

Black is a good time, but it's fairly short. It's a solid shooter, there's nothing extremely memorable to me.

Fuzion Frenzy is all about mini games, it's a pretty fun party game.

Red Faction 2 was a pretty good game, it has bot matches and destructible environments. I can't remember the single player as I used to just bot match all the time.

Bloodrayne 2 is a violent, vampire game but doesn't have a lot of replay value.

Prince of Persia is another great title, it's a classic.

Those are the ones I used to own, hope these tiny one line reviews help give you some direction

Shenmue 2 is like the biggest flop on the Xbox but was actually the biggest game on the system when you look at how massive it is. (60 hours of gameplay in a massive open world)

Is Dead to Rights the one with the guy and his Police Dog?
