This February, Xbox Live Gold members can live their fantasies of hurtling around the Snaeffel mountain course (or throw their controllers against the wall in frustration) as TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge heads February’s offerings. With the sequel due for imminent release, now is a great time to check out the incredibly beautiful, and incredibly difficult, Ride on the Edge.
Joining TT in February is Lovecraftian horror Call of Cthulhu, and our backwards compatible titles are Fable Heroes on the X360, and the classic, OG Xbox, Star Wars Battlefront, however, it sadly comes without online multiplayer support – is there any point? Despite this, and the fact that Battlefront 2 was vastly superior, it’s still a great piece of nostalgia to have in your collection.
TT Isle of Man
Take on the challenge of Snaefell mountain in the motorcycle racing game, TT Isle of Man. All 37.73 miles of the legendary course is faithfully reproduced in this realistic moto-racing title that will challenge your skills and reflexes. Memorize each section and corner each bend to perfection, all while hurtling along at 180 mph.
Call of Cthulhu
Plunge into a world of cosmic horror and creeping madness in Call of Cthulhu. In the official videogame inspired by the classic pen and paper RPG, investigate a family death on an isolated island where nothing is as it seems. Trust no one in a story filled with strange creatures, weird science and sinister cults, set within the iconic universe of H.P. Lovecraft.
Get in on the highly addictive, hack-and-slash adventure title, Fable Heroes. As the heroes of Albion, play up to four players, either competitively or in co-op mode, and collect as many gold coins as you can. Defeat familiar foes and new enemies alike in this fresh spin on the beloved franchise and take playful competition to the next level.
Star Wars Battlefront
Experience an all-time classic with Star Wars Battlefront. Participate in memorable battles from the first six Star Wars films as you fight on the front lines with every weapon and vehicle you see at your disposal. Either by yourself or with an army behind you, the choice is yours to topple the Empire or crush the Rebellion. Note: no online gameplay support.
