It’s that time of the week again, the sales are upon us and our minds are set to hunt out the best bargains on offer from the land of Xbox. Of course, if you’ve been keeping an eye on this week’s early Black Friday deals, then you’ll probably have forgotten all about the potential of the Xbox Live Deals With Gold bargains, but nevertheless we’re here to take you through our pick of the best and worst of the Xbox Live Deals With Gold and Spotlight Sale for 21st-27th November 2017.
Grab – Beyond Eyes – 75% off – £2.50
On occasion, there can be games that come out of nowhere before simply gripping you with a splendid tale and leaving you with a memorable experience for days afterwards. Admittedly such a game is a rare occurrence, so that’s what makes this week’s cheapest offer one you will certainly want in your collection.
In a story of friendship and courage, you guide Rae, a young girl without sight as she faces her fears and travels the unknown world in search of her pet cat, Nani. Of course, if you’re after the hustle and bustle of an action adventure, you won’t find what you want here with Beyond Eyes, but for such a great price, why not take a look into a world of blindness.
It may not be the bumper to bumper triple-A adrenaline fuelled ride that is the Forza series, but Mantis Burn Racing is one racer that is sure to get you pumping pedal to the metal.
Whilst top down racing might have gone out of fashion a little in recent years, there’s no better game to bring back the excitement. With tons of content, buttery smooth multiplayer, perfect physics and a look that combines Mad Max with Micro Machines, this is one game you should already have.
For just £6 it could well be the racer you’ve been waiting for – especially with the Xbox One X enhancements.
Leave – NBA Playgrounds – 50% off – £8.00
We expected great things when NBA Playgrounds arrived on our consoles back in May, but what we hoped would be a classic return to spinoff titles such as NBA Showtime was in fact a questionable effort that raised more disappointment than any real excitement.
Minor issues plagued the game throughout, and a poor online experience and duplicate players saw the whole thing feel like a rushed game with official logos slapped over to hide the mistakes. Unfortunately, with nothing to keep players tied to the game, NBA Playgrounds proved to be a game to forget, and even though the first few games may prove to be fun, things quickly turn dull for one of the years most anticipated spinoffs.
So, there we have it, another week of offers, and our thoughts on which ones you should be looking to add to your collection. Is there a particular deal that takes your fancy this week? Or have the Black Friday deals overshadowed the latest offerings? Let us know in the comments below or via our usual social channels.
