For those unfamiliar, Duke Nukem Forever is the latest installment in the cult-classic Duke Nukem series, and it was released in 2011 after a chaotic development cycle. The game received mixed reviews, but fans of the classic Duke Nukem PC games may well have some fun with it.
As for the two other games, The Darkness is a first-person shooter based on the comic book of the same name, and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is a third-person tactical shooter that was released in 2013, one year after XCOM: Enemy Unknown. The Xbox One backward compatibility list now includes over 500 Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, and we hope to see a couple more additions before the end of the year.Further reading: Backward Compatibility, Video Games, Xbox One
