With the busiest time of the year in gaming almost upon us and an influx of triple-A games inbound, it can be a hard job sifting through every new arrival on the store for something interesting to play. Fortunately, the weekly Xbox Live Deals With Gold and Spotlight Sale deals for the 19th-25th September 2017 are here, bringing with them a fresh selection of titles for only a fraction of the price.
Here are the best and worst ones you should be keeping an eye on.
Grab – forma.8 – 60% off – £4.80
Stranded on an alien planet surface and all alone.
This is the situation you are faced with when taking on the role of a small exploration probe in forma.8, the Metroidvania style action adventure. With a huge world to explore, beautiful visuals, ancient mysteries and deadly powerful bosses, there’s no reason to avoid diving into this one.
Can you find what you are looking for? For less than five pounds you could have the answer.
Grab – Livelock – 75% off – £4.00
If you’ve been searching for a top quality, top down shooter for a decent price then look no further.
Livelock pits players into a war of good vs evil after cataclysmic events have wiped out humanity. With simple controls, yet enough depth to keep players engaged for hours, Livelock is one of this weeks true bargains and one you certainly shouldn’t miss out on.
A co-op campaign is also present and that means Livelock has everything in place for friends to fight the robot cause together.
Leave – Heart&Slash – 67% off – £5.28
Whilst it’s often nice to come up against a challenge, one that becomes increasingly frustrating at just the tutorial stage is something most of us will find a waste of time.
Heart&Slash comes with repetitive gameplay, useless upgrades and exceptionally poor movement, ensuring that the game quickly begins to disappoint.
Although a light-hearted competitor to the Souls type genre would have been welcome, the repetitive failings found within Heart&Slash leave this as an option you’ll want to avoid. Even the fairly cheap price can’t help sell Heart&Slash.
So there we have it – our pick of the best and worst bargains found in this week’s Xbox Live Deals With Gold Sale. Do you agree with our choices?
