In today’s day and age, there’s not much you can get for Rs.300, but we hit the mean streets of Mumbai in search of deals that would make your head spin. We’re talking about AAA games like Crysis, GRID, Rainbow Six Vegas and lots more than can be yours for under the price of a movie ticket.
Note: The games mentioned in this list cost Rs. 299 and are available in retail outlets across the country.
Need for Speed: Most wanted
I will never return your doughnuts
In our opinion, Need for Speed Most Wanted has been the best NFS game, till date, cramming in everything from exciting highway police chases to intense, illegal mid city races creating a thrilling and exhilarating arcade racer. Just don’t pay a lot of attention to the cheesy voice acting and plot.
A Crysis of faith
A graphical powerhouse from the makers of the Far Cry series, Crysis was a first person shooter that unleashed players onto a gorgeous (fictional) tropical island where they had to fight off hostile Korean forces as well as save Earth from an Alien invasion using any means necessary.
Prince of Persia
You wanna climb what now?
Even though this game was criticized by many for being too simple, we absolutely loved 2008’s Prince of Persia that fused gameplay elements, such as platforming and combat this series is known for along with some drop dead gorgeous visuals and highly serene level design.
Take me down to paradise city
If you’re a gamer, the word Burnout probably conjures up images of vehicular destruction and over-the-top racing at ridiculous speeds not seen in most racers today. While we adore Revenge, Paradise is the only Burnout game to be available on the PC and at this price, it’s a complete steal.
Rainbow Six Vegas
Taking a drastic turn from prior Rainbow Six games, Vegas was the first game in the series to offer both a first as well as a third person perspective. The game like its predecessors was more of a tactical shooter where players had plan out their course of action before they went in guns blazing.
The four amigos
Borderlands effortlessly combined first person shooting with role playing to become the world’s first Role Playing Shooter (RPS), a term coined by developer Gearbox Software themselves. Making the deal even sweeter was the fact that the entire game could be played co-operatively by up to four players.
Red Faction Guerrilla
Who doesn't love breaking stuff?
There’s something very cathartic about leveling an entire building with your sledgehammer and Red Faction Guerrilla fed that primal urge with insane levels of environmental destruction, we had never seen before. Add to that an open world mechanic and you have the recipe for complete disaster and utter chaos.
