    So is the Rally Expansion included in the Season Pass for Forza Horizon?

    I'm contemplating Beyond Good & Evil HD. I never played the original so there's no nostalgic value for me here, is this game good in its own right or more for fans of the original with updated graphics?

    Also, any opinions on I Am Alive? I followed that game long before it came out and then it got abysmal reviews so never played it. I still like the premise and the graphics look nice. Is this game really as disappointing as the graphics suggest?

    Also got Angry Birds for free on my Russian account, w00t.
    clap

    Considering all the fuss that was made over the 800MSP game Ben 10 being free for a few hours, I'm surprised more people haven't got excited about a 3200MSP game being free (possibly for the whole week).
    No kidding. This is awesome. Take a dummy account, migrate to Russia, and presto - free game! dance

    Beyond Good and Evil is a good game regardless. It has a nice story and interesting characters. It is great for the price.

    I Am Alive I thought was shit at first, like a 4/10. After sticking with it, I'd give it a 7-8/10. It has its appeal, though I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. The story was lackluster with a laughable ending (it was average at best) but I loved the survival elements and strategy involved in surviving an altercation with some baddies.

    If you are willing to give it a good chance, it is fun for half price. You have to be patient though...well, at least in my case. It isn't much of an action game and doesn't have amazing set pieces, but I really liked it despite its early frustrations.

    TLDR: I Am Alive is nothing spectacular, but once you nail down the gameplay it can be quite satisfying. Just don't expect AAA presentation.

    Thanks for the reply, that's exactly what I needed. Think I'll stick to Beyond Good and Evil now and consider picking up I Am Alive if it ever drops lower and I complete some more of my backlog. Thanks!

    You won't regret it. BG&E is really a great game. With the HD upgrade I feel the game holds up really well.

    The sales normally run from Tuesday to Tuesday. So if you're planning on getting something tomorrow you should be fine.
