The Best Games of Zavvi Mega Monday (07/01/2013)
This weeks Zavvi Mega Monday contains some of 2012s biggest games. We’ve taken at look at the titles on offer and picked out the best deals in the sale.
Doom 3 BFG Edition -
The HD re-release of Doom 3 certainly has a place in the modern FPS market. It’s almost refreshing to play a straight down the middle shooter that isn’t trying to be a Michael Bay film. The BGF edition comes packed with Doom 3, Resurrection of Evil as well as both Doom 1 and 2. The updated visuals wont blow anyone away but the visuals are still solid. The biggest addition to Doom 3 is the ability to hold a torch and a weapon, a cure to one of Doom 3s biggest issues. In a world of fancy first person shooters packed full of quick time evens and cinematic, Doom 3 is still enjoyable and refreshing title.
Doom 3 BFG Edition (£12.95 Xbox360)
Easily one of the best RPGs on the 360. The Witcher 2 is a brilliantly crafted experience that shows how to tell a story in a mature fantasy universe. The combat may be a little fiddly but after a hour or so things feel like second nature. The choices made throughout the story impact the end result in a number of ways, leading to plenty of replay value. High production values and plenty of depth makes The Witcher 2 a joy to experience. If you missed this release in early 2012, now is the perfect time to pick it up.
Lollipop Chainsaw -
Sudo 51 has gained a reputation for crafting low brow but extremely fun titles. Lollipop Chainsaw is certainly shallow in terms of gameplay, yet the game still oozes cheesy ‘Troma’ style laughs. The sheer amount of pop culture references and below the belt jokes does leave the game being for a niche audience. The short length, and before mentioned shallow gameplay, did make the initial £30 asking price a little unattractive. The asking price in the sales however allows Lollipop Chainsaw to be a low price fun filled romp…as long as you don’t take yourself too seriously.
