Today is an important day: the day all those extra Valentine’s Day chocolates go on heavy discount. PlayStation might just have a sweeter deal for sim racers though, with the Critics’ Choice Sale going live today.
There are a whole bunch of big price cuts for a variety of GTPlanet-approved titles. Rally action, the top tier of motorsports, arcade fun — it’s all here, at up to 80% off.
Up first is a pair of Codemasters’ off-road titles: DiRT 4 and Rally. The former is the newer title, though we had a slight preference for its predecessor in our 2017 review. Nonetheless, at one-fifth its usual list price (with PS Plus), it represents a fantastic deal. Rally is as low as $7.99 for Plus subscribers, or two dollars more with the quite excellent PS VR add-on.
It’s good timing, with DiRT Rally 2.0 landing at the end of this month. Keep an eye out for our review in the very near future…
If you want even more off-road action, there’s our favorite rallying dark horse, WRC 7. It too enjoys a healthy 80% discount, meaning it’s available for a tenner.
For something even further off the beaten path — literally — you may want to have a peek at Spintires: Mudrunner, complete with the American Wilds expansion.
Track racing disciples have the excellent modern F1 games from Codemasters. Naturally, we recommend sticking with the newest title if you’re not a diehard Formula One fan, but if you are — and somehow haven’t picked up either — they’re both far less than half their usual price.
Finally, for some lighter fare, there’s a variety of EA titles, including the two most recent Need for Speed games and the remastered Burnout Paradise.
