Best FPS...Best one...They tend to come to your aid like blind lemmings and have total disregard for utilizing common sense in coming to your rescue (i.e.: 2 characters doing covering fire while another takes a reasonable route to assist; instead of 1 AI player after another walks directly in the line of fire and die while you watch helplessly)....My only complaint are that you play as Spartan Locke in all but 3 missions, there is no local co-op and the commercials depicting Master Chief as a trader and thus being hunted down by Locke are simple adding because that actually has nothing to do with the game....Got a great deal in Black Friday for this game and Xbox live membership.
A mysterious and unstoppable force threatens the galaxy, the Master Chief is missing and his loyalty questioned. Experience the most dramatic Halo story to date in a 4-player cooperative epic that spans three worlds. Challenge friends and rivals in new multiplayer modes: Warzone, massive 24-player battles, and Arena, pure 4-vs-4 competitive combat.*
*Online multiplayer features require Xbox Live Gold membership (sold separately).
Holds up...Best yet...The addition of the Bat Mobile, the beautiful graphics, the enormous scale of Gotham City, the ability to go to GPD to visit with your captures and interact with the scum of Gotham, to all the gadgets and abilities, to the combos, to the customization and freedom, keep this game fresh and exciting!...It feels as if they incorporated more strategy and therefore skill than in past installments, for example its less of a button masher.the batmobile/tank aspect of the game is different yet very fun possibly the best addition to this installment of the series....Bought this game for half price on Black Friday.
The shadows are his home and keeping Gotham's citizens safe is his sustenance. Darkness envelops his every move and his legend lives in the whispers of each passerby. Known by many names — the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight,
Batman — this man lives to protect. But by pitting himself against the criminals of a city, he has only made his laundry list of powerful enemies grow. One after another, a new and nefarious threat has risen up and one after another
Batman succeeded in bringing them down. But what happens when those menacing masterminds join forces? Who will rescue Gotham when a deadly roster of depraved lunatics gangs up on the shadowed warrior? Who will save us all?
The finale to the legendary Arkham series explodes onto your screen in the most adrenaline-pumping storyline yet. The Scarecrow has returned to Gotham City and he has united a terrifying team of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn. For the first time in the franchise, you get to step behind the wheel of the iconic Batmobile as you harness the power of Batman and scramble to outwit the wicked gang after your blood. Tear through the streets and soar across the skyline in heart-pounding gameplay that will suck you in and force you to ask yourself if you have what it takes to save Gotham. Do you have it within you to be the hero the city needs? Or will the villains of Gotham overtake the Dark Knight once and for all?
it is ok...Epic fun...But for a shooter game... it just did not do it for me... fast pace but got a bit boring between missions Would like to see the expansion packs include an outer space senerio Pro: Good tutorial, easy interface, "fun" to play Cons: Little boring at times, could use a better soundtrack - Would not wait for the pre-owned...The game is really good but in order to play it you have to first connect to Internet and then pay for the xbox live gold to be able to play it, my point why you have to pay for the game then have to pay for the membership in order to play this game, I know the best part its the live play but I feel like a pay double....This is a great game at an good price for Black Friday.

Loved it...Love it!...the entire family love's playing & watching this game...you can't help but be drawn into the action...there's a unique sense of realism that drives the intensity...you might find yourself ducking out of the way...lol my kids love it...it was a slam dunk!...- Awesome Graphics/sounds Cons: - Bad Spawns - Not enough maps - Partner Spawn isn't always available - Lots of bugs/issues that need to be fixed - Servers can be flaky In conclusion, I have had a lot of fun with my time playing Star Wars: Battlefront....Doesn't get any better, will be on sale black friday.

liked it...Good Buy...With the new madden installment they have added great features like the playbook now can be searched through by type of play, type of formation, what the community is picking and even tell you by common schemes ran by the opposing team....(Red zone, 3rd down plays, 4th down plays, and a pretty variation of others that allows you to take direct control when you want to, while not dragging the game out over a period of time that you may not have to play.) Accompanying the gameplay is a new set of commentators....Great price for Black Friday, gift for college student

You can build your own team by creating your own franchise with your favorite players and exercise complete control over your footballing destiny in Madden NFL 17.
Very fun...love it...Its Mortal Kombat so as you'd expect it is a strategy filled....oh wait, no its Mortal Kombat so it is filled with fighting moves, fatalities and the usual you'd expect just with better graphics and smoother gameplay given the console....The graphics on this add a great sense of realism (you know, for an over the top video game), the story is great so far (only about half way through) and the new QTE's are a fun interactive addition....This bundle was great and bought it on Black Friday Best Buy hooked it up best prices anywhere And the games graphics are amazing

Loved it...Love it...If Gears of War 4 does not live up to the hype, you are going to be very happy to know that Gears of War was masterfully restored with the next-gen treatment to get you through this console's life cycle....It is more or less the same game, yes there is a new chapter, and yes the dark graphics look a bit crisper but the game is already backwards compatible... With that said, GEARS is a GREAT GAME and if you LOVE the game, YOU MUST PICK THIS UP....Also got a nice discount on Black Friday and from Best Buy so it was a definite have to buy for me.
Winner of over thirty Xbox 'Game of the Year' Awards
Experience the game that launched one of the most celebrated sagas in entertainment with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The shooter that defined the first generation of HD gaming has been painstakingly remastered in 1080P and modernized for Xbox One, and is packed full of new content including five campaign chapters never released on Xbox.
The story of "Gears of War" thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the depths of the planet. Players live and breathe the role of Marcus Fenix. A disgraced former war hero, Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against an onslaught of merciless warriors from below.
Very fun...Best RPG...This game will blow your mind perfectly designed game beautiful emivorment music and awesome combat mixed with a compelling story and very likable characters great voice acting and hard decision making makes the reply value high...While there are ostensibly rival nations at work here, they end up functionally acting more like disorganized posse's, and it is not only possible but likely that in the course of this game you will set out on a mission for one member of a faction only to end up killing another member of that same faction for some other mission....Bought it on Black Friday.
No one could possibly imagine that the chaos of today was just the beginning, the start to the dark danger of tomorrow. Who could predict that the terrible pillaging done by the Nilfgaardian Empire, the ravaging of the Northern Kingdoms and the uncertainty of these restless, miserable times are mere child's play compared to the otherworldly threat that looms closer than ever? Don the sword of Geralt of Rivia once again — but this time, the rise and fall of monarchs and battles with legendary monsters are nearly fond memories compared to the danger you now face. This time, that which matters most and those dearest to your heart are in peril. It's time to embark on your most personal quest yet to save your loved ones and protect the world from an ancient threat.
Wrap yourself in a character-driven, open world based upon the Andrzej Sapkowski's seven-book series — a world that teems with life, nonscripted events, unforgettable quests and action-packed adventure. Play as Witcher Geralt of Rivia, a highly skilled monster hunter, as you become immersed in the mature storyline, where every choice you make is meaningful and consequential. As you freely traverse each varied land on foot, on horseback or by boat, you'll experience different ecosystems, unique cultures and diverse atmospheres. Every decision you make along the way not only impacts your storyline, but affects the world around you — deep interactive environments that depend on your actions. Experience a jaw-dropping combat system that combines real-time player skills with RPG mechanics rooted in character development stats that interact with advanced opponent AI. More than 90 combat animations, a wide range of tactical options, an intensely detailed Witcher Senses system, and combat with unique and dynamic enemies create an amazingly complex battle experience that mimics the sequence of a true huntsman. Concoct potions, elixirs, pyrotechnic devices and more with a highly intuitive Alchemy system, and create items from advanced crafting mechanics that have more influence on gameplay than ever before. This classic, dark fantasy tale not only provides you with an immersive gameplay experience, but also offers stunning RED Engine-powered graphics and untold freedom that truly transports you from your living room to a breathtaking, cinematic Witcher world.
Cool Game...The best...Some people might only play through the story once, which took me around 8 hours to get through (and I'm bad at puzzles), it'll take you longer if you do side quests and collect all the various upgrades and materials, but its still a decently short game albeit a very enjoyable one....Rise of the Tomb Raider rolls along at a better pace than its predecessor, but outside of some sharper graphics, more open environments, and a pretty weak quest system which is basically the challenges from the first game with more of a purpose...it just doesn't quite do enough new things to set itself apart from other action adventure games on the market....Great price on black Friday!

So Fun!...good pic...This game is clever and fun and has really fun moments of game play, but they geared the game so you have to try to stay off the ground running and jumping on rooftops and skating on roof edges and power lines which is an exciting concept for a while but gets old and annoying....This game is one of the most innovative offerings of many years; the whole premise of the game is highly creative, it's cool to have a game mostly based on having fun - without losing the excitement of a high-octane RPG....If not wait til Black Friday!
A sprawling metropolis in the not-so-distant future. Premise: A catastrophic event has left the city in ruins and most of its inhabitants are either dead or have been transformed into horrifying mutants.

Good thing you're not like most people.
Dive into the open-world shooter of Sunset Overdrive, and prove that you've got what it takes to survive catastrophe. With a knack for traversing the ruined city with hyper agility, it's a simple matter to survive postapocalyptic conditions. When it comes to the mutants, not only are you escaping their transformation, but you've found your true calling — mutant destroyer. A fully loaded arsenal of overpowered weapons back you up and make it totally clear that the end of days is just the beginning for you. It's your turn to star in this end-of-the-world storyline.
Thank u...A classic...I got it for Xbox one for my nephew he loves it and plays it a lot especially with his friend 2 player mode and he already spend over 30 hours of gameplay that's already good enough for the price....Is good game also there is a creative mode oh yea and adventure which is a version of survival and it is not that adventurous cause you need tool correct for thing opposite....I bought this for my granddaughter and loves playing it on our XBOX ONE I also got on sale during Black Friday.
As a child you played with wooden or plastic blocks to create what you saw in the world around you — a house, a car, a bridge, a cement mixer. In high school, you built lamps, signs and more in shop class. You've also constructed full worlds, filled with realistic people simulating real life. Now, you can go back to your childlike roots and build with blocks again — but this time they're virtual blocks, and you can use them to create vibrant, 3D worlds that are filled with adventure and the magic of imagination.
Get ready to build whatever pops into your mind when you jump into the 3D, eight-bit worlds of Minecraft. Brought to life on your Xbox One, Minecraft lets you flex and hone your creative might as you construct literally any and everything you can think of. Grab your controller and start stacking virtual blocks to build the open-world of your dreams. Just make sure to make a shelter before nightfall, as that's when the monsters emerge. Are you ready to construct the world of your dreams in nostalgic, eight-bit fashion?
It's ok...Good time...Side missions requiring simply hurting a suspect rather than killing him or her can take some getting used to as it seems the creators of the single narrative ran out of ideas, and simply threw these in just to pass the time....great game great graphics exciting and intriguing, cost of these games are a little expensive, but that is the price of all games unless purchased used which can't be done until they are older, who wants to wait for that I like the games right off the hip...I got this on a Black Friday sale.
All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what's happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it's not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.
In Watch Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) — and it controls almost every piece of the city's technology and holds key information on all of the city's residents. You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city's network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy... and more.
Thumbs up...Sons Love...I do not know the first thing about this game but my kids love this game and it also nice that they can play two players to explore the Minecraft world together which is not an option from the Minecraft app....It has brought nothing but fun since and now they both share building the world with greater ease since the younger one can better follow/understand what needs to be selected on the game controller in order to execute certain commands....To reduce conflict, I purchased the game as a Christmas gift- however they got a peak of the package before it was wrapped and begged to play it on Black Friday.

must buy...Fine game...It would have been nice had the developers included more of an indication of low health in the limited HUD mode as I found myself dying after just a few hits because there was no such indication....This is hard for me to say, being such a fan of the series since the beginning-- Assassin's Creed Unity could quite possibly be the biggest disappointment as far as big name titles go....I got this game on Black Friday and haven't played it yet but it is on my backlog.
Paris 1789 — the once-hub of cultural and intellectual activity has been thrown into bloody chaos in the midst of the tense French Revolution. Commoners have become tired of the oppressive regime of the aristocrats and have finally gathered the courage to confront the hierarchy with the pangs of the present inequality. As the nation of France tears apart at the seams, splitting into different factions, a young man named Arno sets off on a journey to reveal the true powers behind the Revolution. In the process of seeking the truth, Arno must face a ruthless struggle as he seeks to carve out a new destiny for the nation he holds dear.
From the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI, experience the French Revolution in all its remarkable, gory detail as never before in Assassin's Creed: Unity. With an all-new game engine, Revolutionary Paris is rendered in incredibly realistic detail, letting you freely explore the open world of 18th century Paris. Navigate your way through complex building interiors, discover secret catacombs and slink through sewer systems. Featuring realistic, systemic crowds of up to 5,000 AI-driven characters, you'll feel as if you're truly in the throngs of the city. Play as Arno — a developing Master Assassin — embarking on ancestral missions, treasure hunts, murder mysteries, contracts and other heart-pounding adventures. Eliminate enemy threats with a wide range of new weapons, including the Phantom Blade, which combines a hidden blade with crossbow capabilities for ultimate devastation. Utilize full-motion control with parkour mechanics, so you can freely run up, down and across city walls and buildings. Want to remain discreet? Enhanced stealth gameplay makes it easy to stay hidden as you stalk your prey and strike without warning. Customize your play experience by choosing from hundreds of possible combinations of weapons, gear, outfits and specialized skills. Take part in an epic single-player campaign or join up with 3 friends online. You and your lethal band must rely on communication skills to successfully accomplish a slew of missions — sabotage an execution, protect an emperor, assassinate a Templar agent and more. Do you have the skills needed to reverse the fate of an entire city?
Not bad...COOL GAME...This collection is jam packed with content which can be a pro and a con all at the same time with so much to do it can feel underwhelming but if you're looking something to sink your teeth into for months possibly years then look no further....I absolutely love these games individually, but having them together with all the dlc's and having them remastered on the new consoles make it one of the best remakes they will make for these new consoles....Good price for a black Friday deal...
