Crazy Taxi and Split/Second are Coming to Xbox Games With Gold in February

Along with Shadow Warrior and an Assassin's Creed spinoff.

News by Matt Kim, .

Microsoft announced its slate of free games for February which include titles such as Shadow Warrior, Assassin's Creed Chronicles India, Split/Second, and Crazy Taxi.

Shadow Warrior, the reboot of the 90s first-person shooter and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India are the two Xbox One titles in the group; while the two car games, Split/Second and Crazy Taxi, are the Xbox 360 offerings. However, Both 360 titles are available on the Xbox One through backwards compatibility so you don't have to worry about it if you unplugged your 360 years ago.

Funny enough, the theme for February appears to be cars and assassins as the 360 titles are both beloved vehicle games with dedicated cult followings, while the Xbox One titles are all about murdering enemies from the shadows.

Shadow Warrior will be free for the entire month, while Split/Second will be available for the first half of February. Crazy Taxi will be available for download from February 16-28 and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India will be available from February 16 to March 15. These games are free with a Xbox Live Gold membership.

    Split/Second is one helluva racing game. That it released a week earlier than Blur (another good racer) and they both never got sequels and Black Rock got shut down is a damn shame.

    It's unfortunate that the 360 version of Crazy Taxi is lacking the real soundtrack, while the crappy mobile versions do have it. If you're not playing Crazy Taxi with the Offspring blaring from your TV you're doing it wrong.

    Also the back compatibility on it really sucked and the game was struggling to even get 20 fps. It was incredibly chuggy and sluggish feeling. Maybe it's been improved since the last time I played it, hopefully.
