- What: Steam Summer Sale 2011
- Where: Steam
Most of the games in the Prince Of Persia series are great fun seeing as they let you run and jump around whilst fighting your enemies with swords, throwing a bit of magic around, and solving a puzzle or two, so it's a good job that you can get hold of five of them (Prince Of Persia, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Prince Of Persia: The Two Thrones, and Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within) for £12.49 in the sales. You can save a fair amount of money if you pick up the Sam & Max games separately, however you'll save over £7 if you pick the three of them up in a pack together. If you're looking for a game that'll scare the living daylights out of you, then you should definitely think about picking up Dead Space 2, although you could always grab a cheap strategy guide as well if you want to eliminate some of the scares, and if you do build up the courage to buy a copy then you'll save almost £10 on the next best offer. Quietly creeping around eliminating targets as Agent 47 is always good for a laugh, then again you could just go storming in through the front door silver ballers blazing, so why not pick up the original game, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and Hitman: Blood Money for £4.47, that's about £1.50 a game! Also, you can get all of Egosoft's X3 series for £9.99, which has got to be worth a punt if you're at a loose end.
Neverwinter Nights 2 has dropped down to £5.09, which'll save you almost £8 on the next best offer out there. F1 2010 has got to be one of the best racing games I've ever played and it's definitely worth taking a look at whilst you've still got the chance to save over £6. Post Apocalyptic Mayhem lets you drive around in tuned up vehicles that you can use to take out your opponents and if that's your cup of tea, then you should snatch up a copy and save yourself almost £4.50. Supreme Commander 2's a cracking strategy game and if you've got a large portion of time to kill then pick it up, go on, you'll save over £4! Duke Nukem Forever has to be one of the most disappointing games I've played this year, but if you still want to check it out then you'll be able to save £3. Finally, Portal 2's price has been slashed to the point where you'll be saving almost £2 and I can't recommend that you purchase it strongly enough if you've not played it yet.
