Rather than offering a couple of big titles and then a lot of smaller ones to bulk up the numbers, the current Bundle Stars bundle wants to be all killer, no filler.
This does also mean that there’s a higher-than-normal chance that you’ll have pretty much everything in the bundle, but what the hell. Let’s take a look.
First off is the rather excellent Tropico 4 Steam Special Edition, in case you want to be an island dictator. It’s very similar to Tropico 3 (and, indeed, Tropico 5) but it’s still really bloody good. Next up is Magicka, the co-op wizard-’em-up which I’m pretty sure everybody owns by now, alongside STALKER: Clear Sky. I’m a little surprised to see Clear Sky instead of one of the other two STALKER games, but… well, whatever.
Then there’s Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword – a Mount & Blade sequel that brings with it muskets and pistols – and System Shock 2, one of the best first-person horror games ever. If you’re more a point-and-click-y sort then there’s Deponia, as well as the heartbreaking story-driven To the Moon. And, finally, there’s Prime World: Defenders, which I know basically nothing about but appears to be a tower defense/CCG hybrid.
For the first 24 hours, this rather solid Bundle Stars bundle will cost you a mere €2.19, and you could easily argue that half of the games in this bundle are worth that price by themselves. If you’re lacking a fair few of them, then I’d say this bundle is easily worth picking up.Related to this article

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
