Not only will we show you wants on offer, we will tell you why in our opinion you should not waste a second in clicking the ‘Buy’ link under each deal.

And remember, if you find better deals elsewhere, the comments section is open to you to share with the world!

United Kingdom

modern warfare 2 box Deals of the Week   26th March 2010Modern Warfare 2: £27.98

As one of the biggest and most anticipated games of 2009, Modern Warfare 2 launched on the PlayStation 3 last November. At the time Activision set a high RRP of £54.99, but now a few months later you can buy this great game for just over half that.

Modern Warfare 2 is a sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Set in the near future, this first-person shooter is one of the best around and currently holds a score of 94/100 on Metacritic.

In December the world’s number one ranked PS3 CoD4 Pro Gamer, Dennis ‘zDD’ Dozier, gave us a review for the game and he loved it. He described the campaign mode as ‘awesome’ and one of the best he has seen in a first-person shooter.

As one of the biggest games of last year, you should definitely not turn the chance to play it, especially if you are a die-hard shooter fan. Developers Infinity Ward have shown that they are one of the best developers around, and no other game proves this better than Modern Warfare 2.

fifa 10 box Deals of the Week   26th March 2010FIFA 10: £23.98

As the latest addition to EA’s series of immensely popular football sims, FIFA 10 was released in early October last year to rapturous critical and commercial acclaim. Not only did it record a Metacritic score of 91 on the PS3, but it also maintained a top ten position in the UK all-formats chart for a staggering 23 weeks.

The hype doesn’t lie either. Make no mistake, FIFA 10 isn’t just a rehash of previous titles with an updated player roster and slightly shinier graphics. The new 360 degree dribbling is a major revelation and marks a real advancement in the genre. Described simply it is the first time a football game has felt more like the real thing than a poor computer simulation.

FIFA 10 is not just a great football game but an excellent sports title too. At only £24 in the superb Game spring sale, it really is a must-buy for any fans of sports games. It is easy to pick-up and play, has great local and online multiplayer modes, and is fairly watchable for non-gamers too.

United States

assassins creed 2 box Deals of the Week   26th March 2010Assassin’s Creed II: $34.99

This fantastic discount cuts $25 off the list price for a game that was one of the highest-rated for 2009.

Set in 2012, Desmond Miles escapes from Abstergo Industries where in the first game he was forced to relive the memories of ancestor Altaïr through a device called the Animus.

After escaping, he then relives the memories of another ancestor named Ezio who lived in Italy during the late fifteenth century.

This game like many others adopts the popular open world gameplay mechanic, allowing you to explore multiple locations including Florence and Rome at ease. Beyond the storyline there is plenty of other activities to do too such as committing assassinations or running across rooftops in races.

In our review last year, we called this game “interesting, fluid and fun to play” with a story that is “well written and acted out superbly by the cast”.

And with two downloadable packs already released, even after you have finished the game there is plenty more new and enjoyable experiences to do.

infamous box shot Deals of the Week   26th March 2010inFamous: $36.54

Now a game that many people overlooked when it came out, and that is inFamous.

The game is nearly a year old now but still very much worthwhile for any of you who overlooked it when it was first released.

For the uninitiated the game sees you play the role of Cole MacGrath, a former bike messenger whose world is turned upside down when he is caught in the middle of an explosion which throws the fictional Empire City into turmoil and grants him electricity based super-powers.

The player then guides Cole through the anarchy of the soon-quarantined city as he comes to terms with his new powers, as well as the moral decisions that come with them.

The plot may sound rather clichéd but this never detracts from the game. Cole is a likeable character to play and the sandbox style nature of the game combined with the several RPG type elements keep the game fun and surprisingly addictive.

The moral choice system is fairly simplistic, especially compared to Heavy Rain, but if nothing else they give great replay value to an already fairly lengthy game.
