Xbox System - (GameStop Refurbished)
Even though it’s an older system, and pales in comparison to its successor the Xbox 360, the original Xbox is still a great console. Although I would not recommend it for a buy as it’s outdated and there are no longer games made for it, it’s still a great console. Design: The Xbox is built very sturdy. If dropped, I doubt it would break. It sits nicely on anything, but cannot be stood up. It is quite a bit heavy, but hey you don't need to throw your consoles around do you? Games: There is quite a large library. Just like all consoles there are many cross-platform games and exclusives. Some great exclusives are as follows- Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Fable, PGR 1-2, Forza Motorsport, Conker: Live and Reloaded, Dead or Alive 3-4, Ninja Gaiden Black, Jade Empire and more. Online: Although at this time, Original Xbox isn't really used for Xbox Live anymore as of course it’s based on Xbox 360 now. However, back in the day, Xbox live for Xbox was revolutionary. Overall- It’s a great system, I wouldn't recommend it anymore as its successor is far superior etc. but for sheer collect ability or even for some games you may of missed, its still a good system. 8/10
The Xbox console is a amazing system. It has a internal hard drive for tons of memory and the controlls are easy to get used to. The disc does jam but it isn't as annoying as I thought it would be. The system also has alot of great games such as Jedi Outcast and Farcry Instincts. I would highly recommend this system. By the way I bought mine ysterday :)
Bulky in size, so that plays a role, the original Xbox controller is too bulky as well. But lets put that a side. Great system overall! Excellent game selection, great graphics, and I like the fact is has an internal hard drive with lots of storage! It is a tough decision to say whether PS2 or Xbox is better, I would say a slight advantage to PS2.
I got it and it broke the very day i got it. Brand New turned it on porably 2 minutes bam its dead HORRIBLE.
i recomend this to classic gamers with wrestle mania 21 raw raw2 and many others it to me has what took to be a great classic
PS2 Is more gamer friendly
I had an xbox, But it is just not worth it. It takes up way too much space and breaks easily. The graphics aren't as good as the PS2 and Gamecube. Xbox 360 is better so I suggest to buy a ps2, and then to buy an Xbox 360/Ps3 or whatever you want.
Great System But Not The Best
I haven't played an original XBOX for years now, but I still would write this review based on my memories. This system is really good. Its graphics may not be the best, but that's nothing to really complain about. It's like a PS2 with a different controller layout. I would prefer the Gamecube over all of these systems, but I would prefer the PS2 over this system. The PS2 isn't better or anything, but unlike XBOX games, you could actually find them in your local Gamestop.
This system is the base of all gaming systems.
Where do you think the Xbox 360 came from? This is the original, real deal, Xbox. It has an abundance of games at it's disposal, all of them have at least 70 hours of gameplay, and all of them have something different to them. This system has the original Halo games, too. It's an amazing system that you shouldn't underestimate because of it's price.
still a good console
i gave this to a friend of mines little brother and he seems to enjoy it. i love to play it some times.
Good but can break
The xbox is a good system for old gamers that like the old games like me. Xbox is preety good but i still recomend the xbox 360. Sometimes the xbox does not read perfectly clean disc. thats why it is not better than the the newer stuff. Overall its pretty good.
