Big Gaming Releases Without The Big Price Tag

The end of 2011 has been packed full with top gaming releases, with something for everyone here is our selection of our best deals:


Buy Football Manager 2012 (PC)
I have been a die-hard fan of the Football Manager gaming series since the 2005 edition. Every year I lose hours (sometimes days) of my life playing it and every year I wonder how could they possibly make the game any better? Fortunately this year’s version is no exception. With over 800 new features and a revamped 3D simulator it is more addictive than any game I have ever played.

Buy Uncharted 3 - Drake's Deception (PS3)
Nathan Drake returns for his third outing in Sony’s highly decorated gaming series. Now available to play in 3D, it promises to maintain the high level of quality expected from the series that is so cinematic in style some of the scenes would not look out of place in a top budget Hollywood movie.

Uncharted 3 – Drakes Deception

Buy The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut (Move Compatible) (PS3)
Continue 9,8,7… The iconic House of the Dead arcade gaming series is now available to play in your own home. Overkill – Extended Cut features 3D & HD visuals as well as supporting the Playstation move controllers. Now you can have that point and shoot arcade experience in your own living room.

Buy Sonic Generations (Xbox 360) for only £11.99
This is the only game this year that came even close to matching my excitement for Football Manager 2012. Sonic on the Sega Mega Drive was the first game I ever owned and whilst my love for the series has remained strong there is no denying there have been a few rubbish Sonic titles lately. Sonic Generations sees the series return to it’s former glory, combining the old-school side scrolling fun with modern up-to-date 3D graphics.
