Playing the Bargain Bin Games

Posted by charlie_victor_bravo (1044 posts) -

Lately I have been playing some cheap Xbox 360 games since I scored bunch of games ~4.20 euros a piece.
There is The Club, arcade action shooter which I do not like that much, but in the end it is not that bad either. 
Lost Planet was another find. Seems like it is OK action game with unique setting.
FaceBreaker is looks like a nice arcade game that is fun with friends. Too bad EA pulled all the online creation and play modes off. 
Transformers Revenge of the Fallen feels like OK action title, but I haven't played it enough to be sure.
Then there was Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood which seems to be really good find for less than 5 euros. Seems like solid cowboy shooter.
 
Also I found Tekken 6 arcade stick bundle for a price of new game (~70 euros, new). Stick is OK, could be better but beats the hell out of Xbox's D-pad. Art book that came with the bundle was not that special and you really have to ask why could it not come with move lists for the character.  Lack this would be not big deal if (it was the normal edition and) the game's practice mode had been designed by somebody with half of brain.
 I surprised how much Tekken's mechanics have taken turn for the better. I remain little disappointed about games games graphics and I am still horrified about games plot. Seriously, if at any point in the game that you are making, you find situation where hi-tech fembot gets piledrived by panda bear wearing star goggles and a bra, you should know better than trying to make plot that is serious and with out any humor.
Still, I enjoyed this game a lot.
