• Metal Gear V: Ground Zeroes – doesn’t seem too different from the other Metal Gear sequels; it just lack originality
• Battlefield 4 – way too many bugs inside the game, underdeveloped single-player campaign.

The sleek controls, exclusive releases, and increased performance will convince you that the price of $400 is money well spent.
