ultimate opinion

Unless you’ve won some kind of lottery, or scooped a big win on your football accumaltor, chances are you’d struggle to be able to afford to pick up each and every deal that is present in the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale between the 7th-13th July 2015. So let us pick out both the best and worst deals that are on the table over the course of the next week.

Best

The Walking Dead: Season 1 and Season 2 – Bundle – 40-50% – £20.00 – Xbox One

Is the Telltale Games title that spawned a whole host of episodic adventures still something that holds its own? Damn right it is  and to be able to pick up both seasons for twenty English pounds is a bit of a bargain… Even if you have already played both on Xbox 360.

Tales from the Borderlands The Complete First Season (Episodes 1-5) – 40-50% – £10.00 – Xbox One

If there was one standout deal in place for the next week, the price of the complete first season of Telltale Games’ Tales from the Borderlands is it. Whilst we’re still only at the midway point in the series, review scores for it have been stunning and we’re pretty confident they will stay that way with episodes 4 and 5. Do yourself a favour and jump back to a reimagined Pandora pretty pronto.

Watch Dogs – 40-50% – £16.00 – Xbox One

I’m still not really sure how anyone can slate Watch Dogs. Yes, it may not have been a full on representation of what we were intially promised, with some key features ultimately missing, but hey, Ubisoft delivered on all fronts with an outstanding open world game that ticks all the right boxes.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Deluxe Edition – 67-75% – £14.37 – Xbox One

Whilst we were promised a sale that would see a number of titles reduced by anything up to 50%, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham obviously slipped quietly through the net, taking in a 75% reduction as it went. It involves LEGO, it involves Batman…is there any reason on this Earth why you haven’t already purchased it?

GTA IV – 75-80% – £3.59 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 67-75% – £2.99 – Xbox 360

The Grand Theft Auto series is much loved by many but whilst the latest version always usurps its predecessors, the price point is the real seller here. Both GTA IV and San Andreas are dirt cheap, offers a ton of hours of gameplay and some of the most magical moments in videogame history.

Worst

Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition – 40-50% – £27.50 – Xbox One

The worst thing you can do in a sale is completely overprice the product. Need For Speed Rivals Complete Edition is however overpriced. With a rebooted NFS hopefully just around the corner, try and hold off for that.

WWE 2K15 Digital Deluxe Bundle – 40-50% – £30.00 – Xbox One

A better game on Xbox One than on 360, mainly due to the inclusion of a career mode, the price of WWE 2K15 just isn’t good enough. Maybe if there was another tenner knocked off of the Deluxe version then we may have got interested.

Dragon Age Inquisition– 40-50% – £27.50 – Xbox One

Hold off another month or two and chances are you could be playing Dragon Age Inquisition for much less than the £27.50 price shown here. The EA Access Vault is something we are always championing, so do yourself a favour and spend the money on a years subscription to that instead, play a ton of other games featuring in the scheme, and wait patiently for Inquisition to arrive in the Vault.

WWE 2K15 – 40-50% – £22.49 – Xbox 360

For a game that’s missing one of the key features, a career mode, the price tag just doesn’t warrant picking it up. Instead, just wait for WWE 2K16! It’s going be a whole lot better now they’ve laid down the foundations. Isn’t it?

F1 2014 – 50-60% – £11.99 – Xbox 360

Xbox One owners are disappointed to mods out on F1 last year, but 360 owners wouldn’t have been completely wowed by what Codemasters churned out. It’s not rubbish, but with its predecessors showing more features, the 2014 version didn’t exactly help itself.
