    Ill get Dark + Tropico 4 since both games on Disk are more expensive here.

    Plus seemed to work that I got the Kalypso games last week they put these on sale after a hell long of a time.

    So if people want more 360 sales it shows to contribute to buying other games aswell

    Feels like we're on the cusp of a second civil war so this is fitting. Just wish I could get the CoD games on there.

    I'll add my opinion as well (for what it's worth :D )

    I'd say only buy it if it's very cheap and if the gameplay videos fascinate you enough to make up for it's flaws (and prepare for some frustration).

    Long version:

    I played it years ago and I remember I did not regret buying or playing it but I certainly remember it had some frustrating parts, mostly because it's a bit on the difficult side (scarce weapons/ammo and some annoying jump/climbing parts IIRC) and the checkpoints sometimes caused you to replay a few parts too often.

    Then again, I loved the art style and the whole feel of the game. Story was nothing to write home about. Actually I don't remember much of the story so that might be clue (or it just tells how bad my memory is).

    Thinking about getting Splinter Cell: Double Agent. I haven't played a Splinter Cell game since Conviction back in 2018. It looks like the multiplayer achievements can be achieved offline with bots too, however it just takes longer rather than boosting with friends.

    Just popping in to recommend splinter cell blacklist for stealth fans. It takes the some of the action elements from conviction, and mixes it with classic splinter cell stealth. The results are very good. Yeah it's not Michael Ironside voicing Sam, and Sam both looks and sounds younger, even though it's the latest game chronologically. But that aside, the gameplay is fantastic.
    AMEN

    The game has actually a scoring system build for 3 different styles:
    Ghost, Panther, Assault and allows for 3 styles to executed. Ubi did a great job preserving true stealth in Blacklist, while allowing for Conviction style of gameplay as well. Brilliant game. A really well done.

    That was the one game I did grab and the stupid game won't download :( Restarted at 80% and I'm on a very small metered bandwidth limit so that was my one try. I have to wait over 2 weeks to see if there's enough bandwidth left for the billing month to try again now. 2nd game that's done this to me recently :(
    Hopefully you can get Starlink when your current contract expires. Apparently it is capable of over 175 Mbps even in freezing temperatures, high winds and deep snow regardless of your location.

    I also plan to get Tropico 4 just like I did with Tropico 3 last week even though I am double dipping with both games which I already own on PC. They are worth it at $1.99.

    Agree :( Awesome game still either way, but really wish I could have finished. I was so close :(

    Is "I Am Alive" any good? I don't want to buy it this time but just curious for a future purchase...
    I bought it earlier from what I remember for a bigger discounted sales price than what is being offered right now, because I thought the story was interesting. I am a bit disappointed because it only provides 200 GS points but considering how short the game is it is still par for the course for an Xbox 360 game.

    Are the Tropico games any good? Anything like Theme Park/Sim City?

    They are more like Anno imo which is also a very good RTS/City Builder but if you're looking for a Sim City may I recommend A Train-HX. It's sadly not listed anymore digitally

    A-Train HX Achievements

    Although it's a more obscure game and pretty hard to find. If you own a JP 360 go for

    Machi-ing Maker 4 Achievements

    Which is highly Obscure and even harder to obtain

    Thanks. That second one does indeed look interesting, but Japanese only and no backwards compatible either. Shame A-Train HX is no longer listed too.

    It’s surprising there are not more of these types of games, especially as we have so many indie games available.

    If you don't care about completion, it's a very smart call to buy it. It's a great game and one of the most improved sequels I've ever played.

    But if you care about 100% stay far far away.

    Problem still with Starlink is that as of now the plans are unknown so they could still have some tiny bandwidth limit in the end on full release :( Still keeping an eye on it all though!

    Yeah, I was going to get the Tropico games on disc because I prefer it that way but the prices were so cheap compared to even used and they were small files. No problems grabbing 3 last week but 4 won't download now :( Makes me reluctant to buy anything if the games are not going to download :(


    Thanks everybody for the info on "I am Alive" I'll wait until my bandwidth is okay and watch some videos first before deciding on it for a future sale.

    I'm not the person to ask, as I don't often play multiplayer. But I can tell you in a general sense, it shouldn't be a crazy grind. Not a part time job like a Gears game. I'm not sure what the community's like at this point.
