While Xbox One X Enhanced games mostly consist of Xbox One titles, there are a few Xbox 360 titles that are getting the treatment as well. Red Dead Redemption is one of those and damn, does it look pretty decent. While the game should definitely run smoother on the Xbox One X, the big difference is in the graphics and texture upgrades. I took the game for a quick spin and the enhancements make it hard to believe this game was released almost eight years ago. I never did finish playing through Red Dead Redemption, but I’m really tempted now — especially before Red Dead Redemption 2 hits later this year.
Check out the difference between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One X Enhanced version of Red Dead Redemption in this comparison video posted by ElAnalistaDeBits on YouTube.
As you can see, it really looks like a game that was arguably recently released. I’m certainly glad Xbox decided to pursue the Xbox One Backward Compatibility, extend it to original Xbox games, and enhance select Xbox 360 titles to take advantage of the Xbox One X hardware.
