February's Xbox Games with Gold packs a punch

Xbox Live Gold subscribers now have some great free games to look forward to in the month of February. It isn’t the best line-up I’ve ever seen, but the February Games with Gold does pack quite a punch with the magnificent, outrageous FPS title Shadow Warrior as its headliner. There is a total of four games, two that Xbox 360 owners can play, while Xbox One owners can grab all four games due to Backward Compatibility.

One of the main reasons I think it isn’t the best line-up even with Shadow Warrior in the mix is due to Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India being the second “big” game. I reviewed the game back in January 2016 and called it an uninspired mess, which I found hard to recommend to anyone. Even so, some gamers might like it and with the likes of Crazy Taxi and Split/Second (both chaotic and entertaining racing games) also in the February Games with Gold, it is definitely a month to look forward to.

Check out a description, trailer and dates for each of the games below.

Shadow Warrior (Xbox One | 1-28 February)

"Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun Lo Wang as he is ordered to acquire a legendary blade of limitless power by his deceitful employer. Betrayed and left for dead, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm preparing to push our world to the brink of destruction. Now the reluctant hero must become legend through a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to uncover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish evil back into the darkness."

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India (Xbox One | 16 February – 15 March)

"Discover an exquisite depiction of Colonial India thanks to a palette of vibrant colours. Zip-line across the streets of Amritsar, hide in the shadows of the palace, and hunt legendary artifacts, following in the footsteps of Alexander the Great."


Crazy Taxi (Xbox 360 / Xbox One | 16-28 February)

"Hey hey, come on over and have some fun with Crrrrrazy Taxi! Barrel through traffic packed streets, hurdle off parking garages, and Crazy Combo your way to Crazy Money in a wild frantic race to scare up the most fares. In Crazy Taxi, time is money, and only the Craziest Cabbies come out victorious."

Split/Second (Xbox 360 / Xbox One | 1-15 February)

"Split/Second is an intense arcade racing game set within the universe of a mega-budget, prime-time reality TV show. Contestants race to be the 1st across the finish line in a made-for-TV city built for destruction, with the ultimate goal of becoming the season champion."

That’s a very decent free games line-up, especially since Xbox One owners get a total of four games due to Backwards Compatibility. My favourite pick has to be Shadow Warrior, as it is such a fun FPS title to play, with over-the-top weapons, gore and snarky comments aplenty.

Check out the official video for the February Games with Gold line-up below and then tell us what you think about the free games coming the way of Xbox Live Gold subscribers next month.
