This is one sweet sale from Newegg. From Tomb Raider to Kain & Lynch, there are plenty of familiar franchises that you can find here. Some other great games that are worth checking out here include Thief ($10.49 - was $29.99), Tomb Raider: Anniversary ($3.14 - was $8.99), and Hitman Absolution Professional Edition ($10.49 - was $29.99).
Seeing a good mix of older and new games in this sale started to make me feel a little nostalgic. I first played Tomb Raider on a demo disc for the Playstation 1. Remember how awesome those PS1 demo discs were? They would be packed with tons of playable demos, so you would be able to try out a myriad of different games before you purchased them. Anyways, when I first tried out Tomb Raider (it was Tomb Raider 2), I thought the controls were slightly clunky and unresponsive, but it was still a cool game. The newer Tomb Raider games thankfully have much better controls, and look fantastic, too!
Hitman Absolution Professional Edition usually sells for $29.99 on Amazon's American website. Listed below is a brief review of this game from a satisfied Amazon customer:
I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars because it is a game with an interesting story line, many ways to fulfill objectives, and has plenty of replay-ability. I usually steer away from 1 player games because I like the dynamics of playing against human opponents. With this Hitman I have gone back and tried new ways of taking down enemies and used different locations to draw or distract my victims.
If you enjoy playing PC games, and you're a fan of Square Enix, then do yourself a favour and check out this deal. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!
