The deals are beneath the cut.
James Bond 007: Blood Stone, Xbox 360 – £13.99 delivered
I was disappointed to hear that this wasn’t the stellar Bond third-person shooter it could have been. I’ve loved most of Bizarre’s previous shooting centric games, based on their previous work I’d have hoped that Bizarre would have put out a fantastic Bond ‘em up. Sadly, if the mediocre critical response is anything to go by, Blood Stone seems to have been a disappointment all round. It currently trades in at Gamestation for £19 via CEX pricematch, so if you finish it quickly, you should be able to trade it in at a profit.
Metroid: Other M, Wii – £9.98 delivered
Other M is the worst Metroid. If we’re not counting Hunters, then yes, it’s the worst Metroid. Still, worth ten of your English pounds? It got “Generally favorable reviews“, so what the hell do I know, but if any of your interest in the Metroid series lies in the characters or presentation, I expect you’ll find playing Other M an unpleasant surprise. Gamestation will give you £11 trade in via CEX pricematch, so if you hate it as much as I did, you can get rid of it pretty easily.
Bulletstorm, PC – £19.99 delivered
An FPS with, get this, hyperviolence and lots of points. Not the most original premise for a game, but Bulletstorm gets credit for enthusiasm. Disappointingly, EA confirmed that there would be no demo for the PC version, so you’ll have to guess how well it will run on you box, although the system specs are pretty typical for an Unreal Engine 3 game.
Tomb Raider Trilogy HD pack, PS3 – £19.85 delivered
Of course, if you want, you can just play all three of these games in HD on their original 360 releases, which are available for a total of £13.97 (Legend, Anniversary & Underworld). The PS3 version has the advantage of coming with some virtual tat, and having been “remastered“. The PS3 collection is out in March.
Deal of the week
Dead Space 2, PC – £19.99 delivered
Remember last week? I told you that you should pre-order Dead Space 2 for £23.75. This week, I suggest you cancel that preorder, and go for this even cheaper pre-order. It’s not out till next Tuesday, so there is still a chance of me finding a better price next Monday, but I think this will probably be the best preorder price you see. Early reviews seem to be on the positive side.
Also of note:
- Test Drive: Unlimited 2, PC – £19.99 delivered
- Modern Warfare 2 and Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360 – £32.99 delivered
- FIFA 10, PS3 – £1.99 delivered
