March’s Games With Gold Titles Are Pretty Good

Shantae Half Genie Hero

March is merely days away, and so right on cue the month’s Games With Gold titles have been revealed by Microsoft.

In March, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have four really good games to look forward to. Well, in our opinion anyway. One of them doesn’t have the best reputation.

On the Xbox One front, Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within will be available from March 1st until the end of the month, and Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero will be available from March 16th until April 15th. You should definitely claim both of those if they aren’t already in your library.


From March 1st – 15th, Xbox 360 game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will also be free to download for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Critics weren’t too enamoured with it upon its release in 2014, but we liked it. It just wasn’t as good as the first game. Pretty much everyone likes Sonic Generations though – it’s the best 3D Sonic game ever made. You can claim the Xbox 360 version of that for free between March 16th – 31st. Of course, both games are playable on Xbox One, and Sonic Generations is even Xbox One X enhanced.

Check out our reviews of the first episode of Batman: The Enemy Within and Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero to find out what you’ve got to look forward to.
