Newest Humble Bundle hits, features Batman, Orcs and more
The Humble WB Games Classics Bundle has landed for this month, and it’s got some pretty good games on offer for dirt cheap. Why not check it out?
The lowest tier for $1 grabs you a copy of Batman: Arkham Origins, and while not the best game in the series, is still worth a casual run through, especially for just a buck. You’ll also get Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Scribblenauts Unlimited. And while Scribblenauts Unlimited is a very niche title, and a bit odd to find in this list, it’s not a bad game if you accept if for the strange creative title that it is. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was largely overshadowed by it’s sequel, especially considering how poorly I thought the ending of that game turned out. But if you haven’t played any of these older titles, now is the best time to do so.
If you go above the average price tier, you’re going to get everything in the $1 tier plus a few extras. The average price currently sits at $4.21/£3.24 and earns a few good games. Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition and Bastion, as well as a copy of Mad Max, just to name them all. Bastion is a pretty simple brawler, but it’s pretty fun if you’re looking for basic hack n’ slash action. Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition is an OK fighting game, just don’t expect the polish or character moveset variety of a Street Fighter V.
Shadow of Mordor and Mad Max are excellent open-world adventure games in their own right. Sure Shadow of Mordor is pretty much played out at this point, as a singleplayer experience it’s still pretty fun. And Mad Max managed to capture the feeling of the inspirational material pretty well, selling the idea of wandering around the wastes in a souped-up nitrotruck, while being totally unappealing in real life, as a fun experience in a video game.
At top tier (£9.23/$12), you get one game more – the complete edition of Batman: Arkham Knight. Which by the way, is vastly improved by the DLC included in this pack. The expansions to the Arcade Mode make it far more enjoyable. And if you happened to hate the Batmobile sections, there’s a certain setting in the options that makes it far more bearable, according to some. Switch ‘Battle Mode Toggle’ to ‘On’, and it allegedly makes the game’s driving sections more enjoyable. Also, make sure you have a decent mid-range PC by current standards, the performance on this port has been optimized a bit, but it’s still pretty demanding at max settings.
The Humble Warner Bros. Bundle ends in two weeks. So, if you like the deals, be sure to head over to its page and check it out.
