Microsoft’s Games with Gold usually features a janky game or two but this month really isn’t all that good unless you like golf. The Golf Club 2019 featuring PGA TOUR will be available as a free download from May 16th to June 15th and Marooners, which I’ve never heard of, is for free for the whole of May.
If you do like golf., and lets face it who doesn’t, then The Golf Club 2019 is one of the best sims on the the market scoring an massive 9/10 in our review. “The Golf Club 2019 featuring PGA Tour should be an essential purchase. It’s the refinement of all of HB Studios previous work, and while the series may have started out as an indie underdog it now feels like a AAA sports franchise,” said our Dom.
In case you’ve never heard of Marooners either I looked it up and it’s a party game where you “Run, jump and slap your way to victory”, and it has a Metacritic score of 56.
From the start of May you will also be able to download Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon on Xbox 360, and then Comic Jumper will be available from the 16th. Believe it or not we actually reviewed Comic Jumper way back in 2010 but it only scored 5/10.
“Comic Jumper is a game that could so easily be fantastic and falls depressingly short. Whilst the art is excellent and the writing will have you in fits of laughter, they don’t make up for gameplay that irritates rather than entertains. It’s a shame that Twisted Pixel got so close to something that could be amazing but instead falls to merely average,” said our Kris.
The internet seems mighty unimpressed with this month’s offerings with many complaining this is the ‘worst month ever’, what do you think? Let us know the comments!
