Each new month means new free games for Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus users, and a comparison between the games offered is inevitable.
GamerFitnation rounded up the facts about each game being offered this month.
Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition (PlayStation 4)Metacritic score: 73
Tomb Raider (PlayStation 3)Metacritic score: 87
Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution (Xbox 360)
Dungeon Defenders (Xbox 360)Metacritic score: 77
PlayStation appears to have the newer games, though Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition is a newer version of a game that was originally released in 2010. Xbox and PlayStation are both tied for average Metacritic scores, and the scores are decently high, so few will complain about the quality of the games available this month. It’s worth noting that Tomb Raider has a Definitive Edition, but the version available with PlayStation Plus this month seems to only be the standard edition.
Microsoft still hasn’t implemented Games with Gold for the Xbox One, so PlayStation still has the next-gen advantage.
Both companies are offering the same number of games this month, and the games offered are of comparable quality. It seems that Games with Gold may be catching up with PlayStation Plus — for Xbox 360 owners, at least.
