You know, seeing updates for the backwards compatible list on Xbox One is almost as exciting as seeing the weekly Deals with Gold or Holiday sales. Even if it means you just get to play an old favourite in your collection, but it means you can pick up an old title you might have missed, especially if you happened to sell off your Xbox 360.
Four new titles arrived on the backwards compatible list of games this week, with Jurassic Park: The Game, Battlestations: Midway, Dragon’s Lair and Tour de France 2011. Not sure what year that series is up to, but it seems a bit dated!

Jurassic Park: The Game is actually one of Telltale Games’ episodic games, which released in 2011. It wasn’t until The Walking Dead when Telltale Games’ popularity exploded, which The Walking Dead being so critically acclaimed due to its story telling. Jurassic Park wouldn’t have been so enjoyed however, but if you find it cheap, you may as well check it out!
Battlestations: Midway is also a pretty solid addition, bringing a relatively strategic flight sim to consoles. A second game in the series was released, entitled Battlestations: Pacific, which built on the success of Midway. Hopefully that joins the list soon, so I can enjoy both again!
