Free Xbox One Games
Price: originally $39.99; Free for Xbox Gold members in November 2017
Xbox user rating: 4 out of 5 stars
My verdict: Worth a download if you love arcade racers. TrackMania Turbo is a really fun racing game a lot of content and modes to keep players focused and entertained.
Description: TrackMania Turbo is an arcade racing game where players get to show off their driving skills on a huge array of tracks and strive to get the best highscore. The gameplay is much improved and polished compared to previous titles and it’s definitely the go-to arcade racing game in the current year.
Tales from the Borderlands
Price: originally $14.99; Free for Xbox Gold members in November 2017
Xbox user rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
My verdict: certainly worth a download if you like adventure games. Tales from the Borderlands features a really nice story and this pack includes all five episodes.
Description: Tales from the Borderlands is a Telltale adventure game that follows the story of Rhys, Handsome Jack and Fiona. Players will closely follow these characters and make various decision, just like in all Telltale games. It features many hours of entertainment and a pretty funny storyline that will certainly catch your attention.
The Turing Test
Price: originally $19.99; Free for Xbox Gold members until 15th November 2017
Xbox user rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
My verdict: Possibly worth a download, especially if you like complex puzzle games such as the Portal series.
Description: The Turing Test is a puzzle video game released on August 2016. The game is set in a futuristic world where players assume the role of Ava Turing, an engineer working at a research station on Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons. Furthermore, the game features a generous amount of puzzles with interesting mechanics that make the player’s experience challenging and compelling.
Free Xbox 360 Games (also work on Xbox One)
Nights Into Dreams
Price: Originally $9.99; Free for Xbox Gold members in November 2017
Xbox user rating: 4.1 stars out of 4
My verdict: Might be worth a download if you’re into this sort of arcade platformer games. I’d say Nights Into Dreams is an acquired taste, and one I haven’t acquired personally.
Description: Nights into Dreams is an arcade platformer action game that follows the story of Claris and Elliot who venture in a world of dreams and must save it by teaming up with Nights, a purple flying creature. The game might awaken some nostalgia withing you but that’s because of how old it looks.
Price: Originally $39.99; Free for Xbox Gold members in November 2017
Xbox user rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
My verdict: Not really worth a download unless you really want to play a “Indiana Jones” type of adventure game even tho it’s not very well designed.
Description: Deadfall Adventures is a fast paced action-adventure game that is set in exotic places such as forbidden cities, Mayan ruins and so forth. While the theme itself is attractive, the combat and the puzzles are pretty dull and the dialogue isn’t particularly good either.
All in all, the Xbox gold free games for November 2017 could be better. As far as the Xbox One games go, I’d say that Tales from the Borderlands and TrackMania Turbo are worth a shot but I’m not too big a fan of the Xbox 360 games.
