The Best Of Zavvi’s Mega Monday (03/03/2013)
We’ve went through all of this weeks Zavvi Monday Madness deals to pick out what we think is worth checking out at a low price. We’ve also went through the other items on sale to pick out something different that may interest the masses!
This month sees the gritty reboot of a familiar franchise in the shape of Tomb Raider. Returning to claim her spot as the best relic hunter in video games, Lara Croft has gone under something of a transformation. Gone are the hot pants, gone are the over-large breasts, she still looks like a model however. This reboot of the franchise sees Lara washed up on a mysterious island inhabited with many dangers both natural and unnatural. Her only goal is to survive. It’ll be interesting to see the way in which Lara has been modernized for today’s market, as well as how well she scale with competition in the genre. Zavvi are offering pre-orders on Tomb Raider for the price of £29.99. given the positive reviews the game has received it could be a game worth investing in.
One of last years cult hits makes a welcome appearance in the sale. It’s sheer insanity and intensity in video game form from start to finish. It’s story involves gods, murder, and a lot of quick time events. While I may not be for everyone it will certainly provide an enjoyable experience for any fan of Dragon Ball Z and the like.
Darksiders 2 On Wii U: £14.98
This pick a bit of a cheat selection. Given the untimely death of THQ and the late release of Darksiders 2 on the Wii U, copies of the game are quite limited in supply. This has created the possibility of copies of Darksiders 2 on Wii U becoming something of a collectors piece for the future. It’s not a dead cert but there is positively potential for the games value to rise. Recall to how Twilight Princess of the Gamecube became quite a commodity and you’re on the right path. At £14.98 it’s hardly a big invest for what could become a collectible title.
Something Different: The Raid (Blu Ray) £8.95
One of the best films from 2012, The Raid is non stop action at its finest. The plot sees an elite SWAT team storm a deprived high-rise apartment block owned by a local crime lord. However the tables are turned when the residents of the apartment block do all they can to protect their king ping land lord in return for free residence. The fight scenes are mind blowing, the sound track is fantastic. It’s most certainly worth checking out, even more so for under £10.
