Thanks to Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, many of you are likely swimming in brand-new plays to play. Just don’t forget to download your free Xbox games for the remainder of this month, and gave a reminder to get your free drag of titles in the month ahead.
Xbox’s next offering is decidedly retro, with the biggest plays falling on Xbox 360. If “youre trying to” take a stroll down memory lane, you can download Dragon Age 2 between December 1 and 15, and Adventurers: Playground of Destruction between December 16 and 31. Both titles work on Xbox One via backward compatibility.
Game Informer’s Joe Juba enjoyed Dragon Age 2, but says in his examine that it’s a step back from Dragon Age: Sources. “The brand-new battle system is fun, but not nearly as gratify or rewarding as Origins’. Since you don’t even have a primary antagonist until the final hours, the narrative pales in comparison to the original. If you set those complaints aside and remove Dragon Age II from the impressive shadow of its predecessor, you’ll find an engaging act/ RPG experience that still retains BioWare’s trademark clever dialogue, cool personas, and detailed lore.”
Mercenaries is a fun open-world suffer from defunct studios LucasArts and Pandemic. You can watch us play through the game’s opening act in our Replay episode.
Xbox One’s free games offer up radically different experiences. From December 1 through 15, players can download C.U.B.E. 2, a puzzle play in which you awaken on an alien world, and must figure out the whodunits of a monolith to get home. You’ll need to manipulate the monolith’s architecture employing state-of-the-art gloves to find the secrets it hides.
The month of free plays concludes with Never Alone, a side-scrolling escapade that explores different cultures of the Inupiat people. Juba likewise reviewed this one for Game Informer, saying “the care with which the Inupiat culture is represented is marvelous, and I adored be informed about its customs and history. As an education tool, Never Alone is a great success, but the gameplay does more to burden than bolster that achievement.”
