The Humble Bundles are evil things. Evil, backlog clogging, wallet destroying, nasty little things. There’s very little to hate about them, other than the fact that you’re enticed to buy even more games that you might never get to. But who am I kidding – even I can’t stop supporting them, and there’s no way I’m saying no to it now that Star Wars has joined the fray.
In what has to be one of the best deals in recent memory comes the Star Wars Humble Bundle, which has nine games (and more to come) for the low, low price of $12. In fact, it’s probably going to cost you just slightly, slightly less, because two out of the three games at the top tier aren’t really must plays. The others though? Well, if you haven’t played most of them by now you should put them at the top of your to do list.
Paying what ever you want will snag you these three titles:
- Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
- Star Was Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- Star Wars Dark: Forces
Paying above the current average of just over $11 will add on these three:
- Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: Sith Lords
- Star Wars Battlefront II
- Star Wars Republic Commando
And paying the full $12 will round everything off with more modern Star Wars entries:
- Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition
- Star Was The Force Unleashed II
- Star Wars Empire at War: Gold Pack
Personally, the bundle is worth it alone for the two Knights of the Old Republic titles, with the first being one of my favourite RPGs of all time. You’d also be a fool to brush over the exceptional Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy title (Though Jedi Knight 2 is missing , perhaps to be added later) as well as Republic Commando, which is a surprisingly tight tactical Clone Trooper shooter. You’ve also got a heavy dose of nostalgia with Dark Forces, as well as a reminder as to why the entire gaming community is praying that DICE don’t screw up Battlefront 3.
The best part though? There’s still more on the way, which could mean Jedi Outcast, Dark Forces II and maybe even some X-Wing titles thrown into the mix. It’s one of the best prices you’re going to find for a Star Wars collection this big, so follow my example and don’t hesitate. Also, if you already own some of the games, be sure to spread the key code love.
