The Best Video Games Of Zavvi Mega Monday (06/05/2013)
The Zavvi Mega Monday sale is once again offering some top games. There’s a whole bunch over on their sales page, here’s three we’ve highlighted as some of the best on offer!
Resistance 3 (PS3 £12.98)
Resistance 3 remains as one of the best shooters this generation. It passed a lot of people by due to it’s release during a busy period. The story was a nothing too special, but it was a nice departure more the overused ‘space marine versus the world’ trope seen in most modern FPS. Resistance 3 is a stunning experience that offers fantastic gameplay that bucks the overly cinematic ways of most current generation shooters. It’s one of those games that many didn’t play, but certainly should, and at this price it’s a crime not to pick it up.
Dead or Alive 5 is a fine example of a well crafted fighter. The franchise may of lost some of its mass appeal, but the gameplay is still smooth and highly enjoyable. The production values are top notch, allowing the whole game to feel very accomplished. The Collector’s edition has various bits and bobs that will surely appeal to DoA fans. The top notch fighting, and decent amount of game modes, makes Dead or Alive 5 worth the investment, as long as you can look past the rather pervy breasts physics.
Max Payne 3 (PS3 £12.98)
Rockstar’s grimy Max Payne 3 is a little style over substance, but it’s still a quality game. The gameplay is satisfying, allowing players to feel like a cinematic bad ass. The story is decent enough, though it does feel prolonged at times. The presentation is where Max Payne 3 shines. The environments emerge the player into the world, the night club scene being a stand out moment. Max Payne 3 also comes with a surprisingly well crafted multiplayer. For under £13 it’s hard to think of reasons not to pick it up.
