Gaming can be an expensive hobby these days, but MenStuff is here to help you find some digital adventures that aren’t too hefty on your wallet.
Check out 7 great Xbox One games you can buy for under R300:
Quantum Break – R280
Part video game, part TV show, Quantum Break puts the old time-travel hypothesis to the test: can you change the past? Remedy’s action game makes time not only a tool, but a weapon for the in-over-his-head protagonist Jack Joyce, and the result is something quite unique and spectacular. It’s not the longest game in the world, but a great addition to any third-person shooter fan looking for something with a unique hook.
Quantum Break (Xbox One) – R280
Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition – R291
DMC: Devil May Cry was a highly-praised but largely unappreciated title when it hit the shelves in 2013. The series reboot of the popular Devil May Cry delivered rich, action-oriented gameplay, sensational visuals, and a compelling plot, and all of it got a spit, polish, and re-release on PS4 and Xbox One.
The Evil Within – R69
Arguably the scariest looking game available, The Evil Within features Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami as the game’s director, with a story that follows veteran police detective Sebastian Castellanos as he investigates the scene of a gruesome mass murder. Of course, things aren’t as they seem, and he soon finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead.
The game plays out as a familiar third-person shooter in which scavenging for supplies and learning when to fight or run are key factors in surviving, much like Resident Evil, but for a new generation.
Mortal Kombat X – R251
Mortal Kombat X is friendly both to casual players who want to experience its rich suite of single-player content and knock around with some friends, but deep enough for competitive players who want to plumb its roster and variations. It’s a robust, feature-rich competitive fighting game that hones what’s worked for NetherRealm Studios in past games,
Mortal Kombat X (Xbox One) – R251
Homefront: The Revolution – R165
OK, Homefront: The Revolution isn’t the best FPS around – it definitely has its shortcomings – but for under R200, it’s a fun experience for the admission fee. The game takes place after the events of the first, and thrusts players into the boots of a revolution soldier tasked with taking back the USA from Korean occupation.
Batman: Arkham Knight – R249
Much like Christopher Nolan having to achieve expectations and bring a climactic close to his Dark Knight film trilogy, developer Rocksteady had a massive task at hand to send the Arkham trilogy off with a bang. The result is Arkham Knight, which features everything we love about the franchise, peppered with some new elements to mix up the bad-guy beatdown sessions a bit more; and Rocksteady’s final game for the franchise did the caped crusader proud.
Sunset Overdrive – R165
Coming from the minds behind Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, we knew Sunset Overdrive was going to bring the noise. The explosive and stylised world of Sunset City may be overrun with mutant zombies, but its fun gameplay mechanics and forward-thinking story push it beyond the usual run-‘n-gun scenario. The complex upgrade system and punchy punk soundtrack only upped the ante. The only thing comparable it to is a Tony Hawk Pro Skater game… with guns and monsters.
Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – R165.
