Is It Worth It?: This latest installment in the Lara Croft chronicles follows our young heroine as she treks across a forgotten island fraught with physics puzzles, enemies, and natural obstacles spawned by the game's unpredictable environments. This "exhilarating action adventure" serves as a "terrific origin story for the iconic Lara Croft.
You can also download Tomb Raider for Windows for $24.99 (a low by $12). This is also an Editors' Choice deal at $2 under our mention from six days ago, and the lowest price we've seen.
Batman: Arkham Origins for Xbox 360 Preorders
Price: $49.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $10
Is It Worth It?: This game isn't due until out until October 22, but anytime you can snag some advance savings on a hotly-anticipated title, it's worth the wait. This game features an expanded Gotham City and introduces a prequel storyline occurring several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Windows
Store: Best Buy
Price: $14.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: At least $6
Is It Worth It?: And now, your medal of honor for smart shopping: This deal is tied with our February mention as the lowest total price we've ever seen for this top 10-selling games. But don't miss the ceremony, so to speak; if you order the Windows version, it's available for in-store pickup only.
Battlefield 4 Preorders bundled with Battlefield 4 Premium Expansion Pack and Battlefield 3 for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360
Price: $59.96 with free shipping
Lowest By: $17
Is It Worth It?: Pat Benatar once sang, "Love is a battlefield." And while we're waiting for Pat to make her appearance in a retro video game — florescent fuchsia zebra leotards and all — we're betting you'll love this "Battlefield" deal. The game isn't scheduled to ship until on or around December 31, but this preorder offer is already tied with our mention from three weeks ago as the lowest total price we could find for both full games alone (without the expansion) by $17.
Note that a physical copy of Battlefield 3 will be shipped to you upon order; the premium expansion pack will arrive with Battlefield 4 when it releases. We're told Battlefield 4 will feature a character-driven campaign that starts with the evacuation of American VIPs from Shanghai and follows your squad's struggle to find its way home.
