From space traveler and zombie killer to tennis pro and fallen New York City detective, today's video game deals provide the ability to suspend disbelief and become someone else. Plus, we imagine many of you would enjoy hiding out from the sweltering heat of midsummer by playing exclusively Editors' Choice video games for Xbox, as listed below. And, if these great games aren't exactly what you're looking for, check out our other video games deals.
Is It Worth It? Return to battle as Commander Shepard and save Earth! Unleash tactical assaults from a distance or go toe-to-toe with enemies; send out the flanks or go it alone. Either way, according to Gamespot, Mass Effect 3 is a "remarkably satisfying conclusion to a beloved trilogy," and enjoyable gameplay in its own right.
Is It Worth It?: A must for die-hard fans of the long-lived game series, Final Fantasy X111-2 "improves on original, but not much," according to Wired. Although the majority of the series' beloved characters are gone in a world occurring 100 years after Final Fantasy XIII, players explore time and space after the collapse of society and use the combat system that distinguished the original.
Is It Worth It?: According to G4TV, NeverDead provides a "fun, campy concept with some great dialogue." You'll play as Bryce, the immortal demon hunter who, when attacked can be torn limb from limb. But your mission remains to find and destroy hostile demon invaders on present-day Earth, even as a rolling head looking to reattach lost parts, limblessly.
Is It Worth It?: Ready to serve? Feel the true excitement and emotion of championship tennis with Grand Slam Tennis 2 in HD! Most merchants charge $30 or more for this "more serious [game]," and IGN says it also mimics "the slick professionalism of other EA sports games like Madden and FIFA."
Update: While the above video game is no longer available, we'd like to play Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for Xbox 360 for $9.99 with free shipping, a low by $19.
Is It Worth It?: Business is war in Syndicate, and the war is on to control the American marketplace. Play solo as the latest chip-enhanced prototype agent with a mission to annihilate your enemies and harvest their chip technology for personal advancement and sinister corporate greed, or join cooperative play, which GameSpot also calls "undeniably thrilling."
Update: While the above video game is no longer available, we've got our eyes on Kinectimals for Xbox 360 Kinect for $9.99 with free shipping, a low by $2.
