As many of you may know it is Black Friday today which means big deals and sales across the stores. Steam has followed this tradition and is offering some truly amazing deals today. It is well known that the Steam sales contain some incredibly good deals but however I believe today has been taken up a notch to keep in the spirit of things.
Here’s a quick list of today’s top deals:
- ARMA II: Combined Operations – £12.49 (50% off)
- Max Payne 3 – £7.49 (75% off)
- Awesomenauts – £2.37 (66% off)
- Portal 2 – £3.74 (75% off)
- Sleeping Dogs – £14.99 (50% off)
- Prototype 2 – £9.99 (50% off)
The massively acclaimed Max Payne 3 is only £7.49 today! Which means a 75% discount. This purchase is an absolute steal, the game has received amazing reviews and it is quite obvious why when you actually play the game. The game contains some of the best third person shooting seen in the past few years, its amazing use of the bullet time mechanic and kill camera gives an immersible feel to the game, it uses these factors very well and gives a nice clean feel to the combat aspects of the game. The game is very story driven and contains many highly narrative cut scenes to bring across the plight of Max Payne. All in all the game is very worth the £29.99 it was originally priced at, but for £7.49 it would be foolish to miss out on such a deal. This is definitely my recommendation for the day out of all the games that are in today’s deals. Gamespot rating – 9.0, Metacritic score – 87/100.
The other notable game in these deals has to be Portal 2. The Portal games are iconic and very well known in the video game world. The second installation in the series a new, fresh feel to the portal mechanics and adds new fun puzzles and challenges in which to progress through the game. If you enjoyed the first game you will love the sequel, I highly recommend taking a look at this in the store today. Even more so as it is only £3.74! This is ridiculously cheap for such an amazing game. So have fun and enjoy the Black Friday deals, they may be over before you know it!
