Deals of the Week – 17th July 2010

Submitted by on Saturday, 17 July 2010No Comment

Another batch of fantastic PS3 games at unmissable prices? It can only be Deals of the Week!

Yes once again we’re back, bringing you the best prices on the best PS3 titles that you can buy right now.

We love a deal here at Attitude Towers which is why every week we not only bring you our four favourite bargains, but also a  list of any other great value titles we’ve spotted.

It’s also why we’ve all got so many new games and such little money. It isn’t our fault – who could resist at these prices?

As always if you spot a deal that we haven’t do share it with us in the comments section at the end of the article.

United Kingdom

Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 – £28.85

Okay, it goes without saying that Lego Harry Potter isn’t exactly the coolest game around. If you bringing a date home and attempt to impress them with your high-def gaming set-up this definitely isn’t a game you want to have in the drive.

It isn’t the hardest game either. As with all of the Lego games there is no way to fail a level. Not that you would anyway, as all of the levels are very easy.

These things don’t matter though, because like all of the Lego games it is ridiculously fun.

Harry Potter is a great match for the franchise. For the first time breaking down objects into their component bricks and reassembling them into something else actually makes sense – it’s magic! Much less confusing than in previous games that saw Batman doing DIY in fast-forward.

The spells are generally cool looking and  fun to cast, and the variety of them lends the puzzle sections a bit of depth that previous games were missing.

As with all of the Lego games the emphasis is on two-player co-operative play, but unlike the older games the screen actually splits when you move too far apart. It may sound minor, but this is a huge improvement.

Otherwise the game is crammed full of content, like all of the Lego games, and adds some great Lego humour to the story, like all of the Lego games.

Lego HP is more than worth this low asking price, so pick it up – it’s magic!

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X – £9.93

If you’re into air combat then this game certainly should have your attention.

H.A.W.X finally lets you pilot some of the world’s best jets without the need for a license – in fact you don’t need to leave your living room!

Soar tens of thousands of feet with this fast-paced enthralling game that sees you dog fighting at speeds you can only imagine. The title provides a variety of landscapes that you can admire between the action too.

The engaging story begins in 2014 and sees you assume the role of a U.S. Air Force Pilot who flies in the HAWX squadron. Shortly after the first mission, the elite pilots are disbanded from the Air Force and instead join a private company. The game continues with you flying missions for the company but eventually fighting against them.

Also part of the game is online co-op which not only makes the game a hell lot more fun, it is also slightly easier as you share the enemies between you. There’s also team deathmatch with up to eight players and nineteen maps that’s very addictive with plenty of upgrades that keep the gameplay fresh.

Overall H.A.W.X is a game that may not be fully rounded in every way to make it a true classic, but it is an original and entertaining title that we think many will enjoy.

United States

Mirror’s Edge – $9.99

You may remember that back in May this was one of our deals for our UK readers. Well now, we bring it over to those of you in the US.

You may be wondering why we keep pushing a game that, by all accounts, reviewed rather averagely. Quite simply for us Mirror’s Edge is one of the best games of this generation.

That’s right. Mirror’s Edge is one of the best games of this generation. Seriously.

The game itself is a delightful mix of platform style gameplay with a first person perspective. You play as a free runner, travelling by the rooftops to deliver messages undetected by the totalitarian government of the city. The emphasis is negotiating obstacles and enemies with as much speed and grace as possible and when you get good enough at the game to do this successfully it is a joy.

This is not an FPS. Although there are guns and there are enemies, violence is quietly frowned upon by the game. The game is far more fun when you use Faith’s acrobatic skill to avoid combat altogether, and doing so will award you a trophy too. That’s right – a game that rewards non-violence. To the presses!

Otherwise the game has a solid story, a fantastic soundtrack, and a truly beautiful art-style. It looks incredible.

Mirror’s Edge really is the full package. The only real flaws that it has is that it is fairly difficult, and very short at only around 5 hours. But really, they are a great 5 hours.

Batman: Arkham Asylum – $39.99 

Most licensed games you should give a wide berth, particularly those that are based on an action hero – this is something we have talked a lot about here at PS3 Attitude.

But Batman: Arkham Asylum is a rare exception; even though it has no direct connection with any of the recent Batman films!

It’s fair to say that it was a surprise hit critically and commercially, and it sits in our hearts and many others as one of the best games of 2009, winning many awards in the process.

The game’s plot is centred on Arkham Aslyum where The Joker has ensured that Batman is trapped inside with no signs for escape. With you playing as the Dark Knight, you must survive the torture and stop The Joker’s master plan of evil.

The plot may sound cliché but we can tell you that the gameplay is not to be ignored. British developer Rocksteady has excelled at delivering a fun and engaging game to play that should suit most type of players. And before you ask, it doesn’t matter if you don’t play superhero games as you can appreciate for what it really is.

So in short, you should have played this game already. We know that we say this every week, but it deserves to be on your game shelf.
