February’s Xbox Games with Gold titles have been announced, and the selection is of a rather top tier, I have to say. Whether it’s sci-fi, or hardcore racing action you’re after, there’s something here that everyone should enjoy.
On Xbox One Games with Gold, Xbox Live Gold members can download Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime ($14.99 ERP) for free during the month of February. Project Cars Digital Edition ($29.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from February 16th to March 15th.
On Xbox 360 Games with Gold, starting Wednesday, February 1st, Monkey Island 2: SE ($9.99 ERP) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through February 15th. Then on February 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download Star Wars: The Force Unleashed ($19.99 ERP) for free through February 28th.
Last year, we received the first remastered Secret of Monkey Island, so if you managed to work your way through that, then this one should be a welcomed bonus! As for Project CARS, well I will just say that I found the inclusion of that to be a bit surprising.
Unlike Forza Motorsport or even Gran Turismo, Project CARS is far from a casual racing ‘sim’. It’s an actual sim that will see half its first time players switching it off in frustration, unless you follow Youtube tips on how to setup your controller to avoid spinning out. But, if you give it the time it deserves, it could soon become your favourite racer.
