The anarchic Lego Batman and arcade ATV racer Pure are capable games in their own right... but as a double pack, they offer some serious value. The Game Collection are currently shifting the double bundle back for £6- which will save you a couple of quid compared to Coolshop... but essentially brings the price down to £3 per game. This is a major saving and a perfect purchase to kill some time over the long hot summer.
Lego Batman is... well, the same as every Lego game. Shrinking the Batman universe down to a cutesy platformer, you'll jump, punch and build your way through the most adorable Gotham City ever. Traveller's Tales' trademark gentle humour will entrace newcomers and disarm otherwise rabid Batman fanboys. Don't get me wrong, though: this is not a hardcore title- and veteran gamers will quickly find themselves craving something a little... deeper. Perfect for kids, parents and ironic fans of the caped crusader.
Pure is a very capable arcade racer. Ragging ATVs and quad bikes around dangerous mountain tracks is pure adrenaline-fueled fun- and you can always have a go at the demo on Xbox Live Marketplace if you want to try before you buy. Unfortunately, Pure suffers from the achilles' heel that more and more racers are sadly adopting: a lack of split screen play. Whilst you can race online, an arcade racer that can't be played with mates in the same room is completely pointless. But for £3, who cares?
