Day 5 of Game4u's 12 Days of Christmas sale has started with the newest game being Crysis 2. Developed by Crytek, the game was a sequel to what was widely considered to be one of the prettiest tech demos to ever come out. The game is available at a 50 percent discount at downloads4u, bringing its price down from Rs 999 to Rs 499.
Crysis 2 saw a major change from the tropical island setting of the first game to a more urban setting. It also had a more fleshed out story than the previous game, and was widely considered tobe not as good at graphical fidelity as the first game. Read our review of Crysis 2 here.
Crysis 2 now available at a massive discount
The previous game up for sale was Tropico 3. The city-building parody of the Cold War was available at a price of Rs 49, which is a 50 percent discount on its original price of Rs 99.
In Tropico 3, you play as 'El Presidente' of an island somewhere in the Carribbean. The Cold War is in full swing and you have to manage and, hopefully, develop the island. This can be done through regular means, or if you're really evil, through a dictatorship. You can also ally yourself with either the capitalists in the West, or the communists in the East. This is a difficult decision, as allying with one or the other blocks out the options for laws you can pass. Tropico 3 is known for its tongue-in-cheek humour and parody of the otherwise serious Cold War.
