Xbox One Games with Gold
Defense Grid 2 (May 1-31st)
What’s it all about? Classic tower defence game set in space. Players must fend off waves of aliens using a variety of different and upgraded towers.
Worth a download? If you dig on this genre, Defense Grid 2 is one of the best out there.
Costume Quest 2 (May 16-June 15th)
What’s it all about? Cartoonish RPG with a Nintendo-esque art style, in which two brothers fight monsters on Halloween.
Worth a download? Absolutely. It’s a short game, but wholly enjoyable. This is a treat, not a trick.
Xbox 360 Games with Gold
Grid 2 (May 1-15th)
What’s it all about? Cars. Racetracks. Few surprises (Except that one tricky bend on that one track…). If you’re a racer, you know what to expect.
Worth a download? There are better, more competent racing games out there, but you could do a lot worse if your library is running out of steam.
Peggle (May 16-31st)
What’s it all about? Hi-score puzzler built for casual gamers. Shoot pegs with balls, get rewarded. Rinse and repeat – in a good way.
Worth a download? Chances are, if you’re a fan of these games, you’ve already bought Peggle, or at least played it. If not, give it a quick bash if you want a mobile game on your console.
