Xbox One X Review Roundup: In Short This Box Will Take Your Breath Away

The Xbox One X reviews are going live one by one and there are only a few sites that rate hardware in numbers, it can be hard to come to a definitive answer. The reviews seem to be positive overall and there is nothing wrong with the Xbox One X. Having that said there is a lack of enhanced games out right now.

The enhanced games should be coming out soon, so that is not a big concern. The overall opinion of the critics is that the Xbox One X is great value for $500 especially when you see what it is capable of and what you need in order to get similar results on PC.

It is safe to say that you will be unable to build a $500 PC that will be able to give you the same performance.

Xbox One X Review Roundup: What Critics Have To Say

The following is what the critics have to say about the console:

The Verge

I’m really impressed and surprised at how much power Microsoft has managed to squeeze into the Xbox One X’s small case. While the original Xbox One was a big, black box about the size of an old-school VC.


Xbox One X is the ultimate video game system. It sports more horsepower than any system ever. And it plays more titles in native 4K than Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro. It’s just about everything you could want without investing in a gaming PC.


After spending a week with the Xbox One X, Microsoft’s “world’s most powerful console,” I know three things for certain. It’s definitely an Xbox One, it makes enhanced games look lovely, and waiting for Xbox One X enhancement updates sucks.

The Guardian

Multiplatform titles will almost certainly look better on Xbox One X than on PS4 Pro, sometimes very noticeably (and elements like increased draw distance and smoother frame-rates can have a palpable effect on your gameplay experience).

Popular Mechanics

The Xbox One X is, unsurprisingly, the best Xbox out there. And if you’re dead set on sticking to consoles, it’s top-of-the-line. But if you really care about graphics enough to make an investment on getting better ones, it’s time to give some serious thought to going over to the dark side.

Tech Crunch

There is an appeal to gaming in 4K though I question the current value to gaming in 4K. Are the Xbox One X graphics better than on the Xbox One S? Yes, but sometimes the differences are marginal and often meaningless to the gameplay.

The Xbox One X games enhancements will be coming out soon and they are as follows:

  • Dead Rising 4 – 4K
  • Deep Rock Galactic – 4K, HDR
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – HDR
  • Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition
  • Dishonored 2 – 4K, 30FPS
  • Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
  • Disneyland Adventures
  • The Division
  • Doom – 4K 60FPS
  • Final Fantasy 15 – 4K, HDR, 30FPS
  • Firewatch
  • For Honor – 4K, 30FPS
  • Fortnite – 4K, HDR, 30FPS
  • Forza Horizon 3 – 4K, HDR, 30FPS
  • Forza Motorsport 7 – 4K, 60FPS, HDR
  • Gears of War 4
