Summer fun at a great priceWritten by Michael Siebenaler | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Great gaming deals can make the summer end on a high note. Cut prices on consoles include the PlayStation Portable, PSP Go, Nintendo DS Lite and Nintendo Wii while several quality games can now be found at reduced prices.
‘Shift 2 Unleashed’ (Electronic Arts)
This racing simulation game has an easy control scheme so players can speed off any time. Careful strategy pays off as players must master turns and technique, which becomes much easier as developers match player skills with overall driving difficulty.
The game measures player skills with a beginning trial race. Crash animations are realistic, yet traumatic event and players hit some rough patches if they cause accidents.
The real racing thrills increase with amazing graphics, first-person perspective camera, and an AutoLog feature, a statistical profile system that matches competition, expands online play and even recommends races against other players. Players can share content, send challenges and compare statistics while using earned experience points to unlock items, cars, and bonuses.
Inexperienced players not looking for challenges should definitely play at a low difficulty level.
Veterans and challenge seekers can enjoy the great depth and high replay value. The PC version price now stands at $29.99 while the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version have been reduced to $39.99.
Limited editions on Xbox 360 and PS3 are still at full price (***, rated E10+ for mild violence and mild suggestive themes).
