To my knowledge, ZoE 2 on X360 was never patched, unlike the PS3 version.

X360 run at 720p with frame rates fluctuating from 15-40. PS3 runs at 1080p at locked 60.

I'm not sure how much better it will run on a X1/X1X/X1 Series, but you will still be locked to the 720p regardless.

The fact that we're praising X360 games over the X1 games says alot about GWG.

If you can play any other version, they would be better options. Hell, the PS2 version ran better than the X360 version.
Zone of the Enders is a backwards compatible game, so it can be played on Xbox One and Series S/X. I'd imagine it'll run just as good or better than the other platforms you mentioned.

I realized about the BC after posting, but you'd still be locked to the 720p.

But free with Xbox Gold is free.

From what I heard, Zone of Enders is silky smooth on the Xbox One X.
Only issue is the resolution and missing special effects compared to the PS3 version.

Time always smooths out performance issues with frame rates. But it's a shame that the resolution is locked.
Still hoping that one day, Microsoft will release "resolution doubling" for all Xbox 360 games to 1440p.

This might be the first time in a long time that I'll actually play a GWG game... There's just no point otherwise since GamePass is so good

For what it's worth, this guy says he played at 1080p on Xbox One X.

The only reason this still exists is because some people still only have XBLG, and refuse to pay $1 to upgrade to GamePass Ultimate. lol

It's what the Xbox is outputting, not the in-game resolution. ZoE1 never got an update so an official 1080p version of it doesn't even exist anywhere.

Newb question. If I add the game to my "que" then cancel the download, I was told that I would still get the game. But I can't seem to find Gold games that I have previously added. Is there a way to view the list of gold games that are previously downloaded/acquired?

I logged in and opened up each game page to add manually.
