Xbox - May 2022 Games with Gold


Are the Games Worth Playing?

Yoku’s Island Express is a side-scrolling platform that takes you on a journey through the use of pinball mechanics. It’s a really unique and original idea with a strong story behind it and would suggest it to most players looking to branch out and experience something new. The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk is a cartoon style point and click game. It’s more so narrative-focused, with witty writing, tons of bizarre moments, and is full of likable characters.

The other two games are multiplayer games, that will be more fun to play with friends. Viva Piñata Party Animals is a party game with 40 mini-games that play a lot like Mario-party. Hydro Thunder Hurricane is an electrifying boat racing game. Compared to the other free games, it’s probably delivering the least amount of content, but still could be fun racing against friends.
