Cheap This Week - 18/05/11 • Page 2

Crysis 2! Plain Sight! Conviction!

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Xbox 360 – 400 MS Points (Xbox Live Gold subscribers only).

Classic point and clicker that, er, I didn't really like. Perhaps I need to give it another go, but it didn't really tickle my funny bone. Dan had this to say of the modern prettied up remake in his review:

"These bare bones form the skeleton of a truly marvellous game, however, and one that everyone should play. While it would be nice to have a more robust package, simply having such an unmistakable classic back in active circulation where new players can discover its dazzling inventiveness and giddy humour is victory enough."

This offer is available until next Tuesday, and if you're in need of MS Points, Amazon are currently doing 2100 for £14.99 delivered.

The making of the remake.

Deal of the week

AI War: Alien Bundle, PC/Mac – £16

Here's the complete version of the dead clever intergalactic strategy game, AI War. Included is the original AI War: Fleet Command, and the three expansions: The Zenith Remnant, Children Of Neinzul and Light of the Spire. Everything has been individually discounted too (see here).

You can either download them straight from Arcen's website, or the serials will optionally register on Steam.

Phill had this to say of Fleet Command in his review:

"The heart of AI War is in its asymmetrical nature, but that uniqueness permeates the entire game, from the way each fight works to your overarching strategy. There's an element of discovery in it that is partly due to the procedural nature with which the galaxies are created, but also down to the incredible amount of options each time you create a game."

Also of note this week...
