Stamford, Conn. (PRWEB) July 13, 2005
Summer is the season for outdoor activities, but some days are sure to be rainy, and some children arenÂt content with reading a book during indoor days. Members of AP9 Connections, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, can use their program benefits to save on a wide range of family entertainment, including the latest video games.
As the video game industry continues to grow --with 2004 game software sales of $7.3 billion marking a four-percent increase over 2003 sales -- so does the variety for gamers of all ages. AP9 Connections members can log on to DealPass and purchase gift cards to reputable national retailers that carry the latest, most popular games for Sony PS2, XBox, Sony PSP, and other gaming systems.
AP9 Connections offers a brief review of several recent bestsellers:
-- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Available for Sony PS2 and XBox) is the latest version of the wildly successful ÂGrand Theft AutoÂ series, featuring Carl Johnson returning from Liberty City to bad news. With its fully-interactive, 3-D format and revved-up soundtrack, kids will enjoy the thrills and chills of chasing down CarlÂs enemies. Be warned, however, this game is rated ÂMÂ for Mature (Content may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older.) because of the extreme violence.
-- Medal of Honor: European Assault (Available for Sony PS2 and XBox) is a World War II-based game that combines real battlefield footage with tales from actual WWII veterans while the player commands a military unit. Players are faced with difficult, life-or-death choices as they try to achieve primary and secondary military objectives. At a time when war is real and history is often overlooked, MoH: European Assault offers a virtual gateway to both the past and the present. This game is rated ÂTÂ for Teen (Content may be suitable for persons ages 13 and older.)
-- Batman Begins (Available for Sony PS2 and XBox) tracks the evolution of Bruce WayneÂs alter ego, Batman, as he begins cleaning up Gotham City. The game uses clips from the recently released movie to create a moody tone and to set up scenes, and players must exhibit patience to allow BatmanÂs traps to come to fruition. Perhaps the coolest part of the game is the opportunity to drive the Batmobile. (Warning: If you havenÂt seen the movie, this game will spoil some major plot twists.) This game is rated ÂTÂ for Teen (Content may be suitable for persons ages 13 and older.)
-- Juiced (Available for Sony PS2 and XBox) is a racing game that brings the user directly into the culture of street modding. From creating crews to customizing cars, the player is immersed in the street-racing environment, and with over 50 licensed cars, 200 official aftermarket parts, head-to-head play for up to 6 players and team-based racing options, Juiced can keep the whole family entertained for hours at a time. This game is rated ÂTÂ for Teen (Content may be suitable for persons ages 13 and older.)
In addition to savings on gift cards for major entertainment retailers, AP9 Connections members can also enjoy significant savings on restaurant dining, movie and concert tickets, theme park visits and much more.
