First, you need to check if the game is on the backward compatibility list. Once confirmed, just insert the original Xbox game disc into your Xbox 360, and it should start. You may need to download an update.

Grab that dusty Xbox 360 and make sure it's connected to the internet, then pop in one of the supported original Xbox game discs! If it's on the compatibility list, it should work like a charm.

A hot take: You're better off playing newer games! The backward compatibility on Xbox 360 can be a hit or miss experience.

I still play my old 'Halo: Combat Evolved' on my Xbox 360! Just put the disc in and let it download the update. Works great!
