37 New Titles for Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility

Well no sooner had I finished dinner, but I've now been presented with a portion of humble pie. Microsoft have added 37 new titles to their backward compatible list and updated 11 others. A software emulator is required for each original Xbox game you play on your Xbox 360 console. The elderly would like to say he is delighted with.

Burnout 3 Takedown (yesssssss!)
Fatal Frame II, Directors cut
Rogue Trooper
The Suffering (yessssssss!)
Ghost recon Island Thunder

and smiling that Call of Cthulhu, and Half life2, have been updated

When compared to Metacritic scores, I'm puzzled at the inclusion of

Catwoman (45%)
Aquaman (26%)
Torino 2006 (36%)
Trigger man (32%)

but hey i'm still a happy chicken
Thank you backward compatible update people!

Full list from game compatibility page on

whispers (battlefield 2, Morrowind, arx fatalis, cold fear, chronicles of Riddick, mercenaries, Sudeki) please!!
