Another month, another batch of freebies courtesy of Microsoft‘s Games With Gold promotion. The month of August offers the spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon, Crimson Dragon, as well as the sci-fi space shooter Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut.

Free games are free games, but how do they stack up? Crimson Dragon is hit or miss, but I obsessively played it for over 100 hours. You can check out our review right here! Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut had a lot of potential that I felt was ruined by lackluster controls and repetitive mission structures. Our full review for that one can be found right here as well.

But what about the Xbox 360? The XBLA release Motocross Madness is a free download until August 16th, which will then be replaced by the masterful first-person stealth game Dishonored until August 31st.

  1. I felt the same way about Strikesuit Zero. I just started playing the dragon game and I’m liking it so far. I’m still disappointed in the lackluster game selection we’ve gotten so far with games with gold.

    1. Guacamelee is good, but everything else has just been really meh. Don’t get me wrong, I put an absurd amount of time in to Crimson Dragon, but it’s not a great game by any means. I just got addicted to leveling and evolving dragons.

      I went with the Silvertail dragon for my first run through the game. It has a really neat “put stuff in this giant square and melt everything” ability that made the lackluster aiming system easier to swallow. Which did you go with?

      1. Since I literally just started the game I haven’t had a chance to choose a dragon yet. I just have a big red dragon that I call fluffy :].

        I hated Guacamelee.

      2. If you have trouble with any of the levels, let me know. I can add you to Xbox Live and you can rent out my dragon to blast through stuff for a couple levels.
