Best Games on Xbox with "Any Speech has Subtitles" Accessibility Settings

The original Xbox launched in 2001 with the headline game, Halo. A year later the online service Xbox Live service extended the experience. You can play some original Xbox games on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S via the Backward Compatibility feature that emulates the older hardware when you put an older disc in a newer system.

You can't use Xbox 360 or Xbox One controllers on the original Xbox. It launched with a slightly larger controller that was soon replaced by a version more suitable for smaller hands.

As part of our Accessibility Report, this page lists games that have been flagged with accessibility settings in the following areas.

Reading: Each of these games has been assessed for how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose. Each game offers the following accessibility features and settings:

  • Any Speech has Subtitles: All spoken content has subtitles, or there is no speech in the game. This means there is no requirement to hear spoken dialogue or narrative to play the game.
