I found Spec Ops: The Line on the Xbox 360 for $35.99 at Deep Discount today. For the single player portion of the game the reviews have been positive. On the other hand, the reviewers found the multi-player to be very derivative and boring.

That may be a good price, but I rather pay more than to have to deal with a website that has some of the worst reviews on the Internet. Thanks for sharing though.

I had no idea that Deep Discount was so hated. I've been ordering from them since the days when they had deepdiscountCD.com and deepdiscountDVD.com. I've probably placed 20+ orders with them over the years and never had a problem. I usually get my packages in a week or so. However, I do agree with some of the reviews that the website leaves something to be desired. Hopefully I continue to be lucky and have good experience with the company. If I have trouble with my order of Spec Ops I'll be sure to post it here.

I ordered Blu-rays from their summer sale with no issues. Nothing was out of stock and they all arrived fairly quickly.

But I have also dealt with their dark side in the past, which was a painful and aggravating experience.

If all you're ordering is Spec Ops (and using Ebates to get some change) you should be fine since you shouldn't be arguing with any CSRs or wondering when the order is shipping since it's not exactly an in-demand game.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Placed an order out of curiosity, did it through paypal as well just in case. Will advise if there's any issues and/or when I get it.

I have only ordered with them once or twice. The most recent was about 6 months ago. Shipping was slow, took a week to ship, but other than that the transaction was fine.

I bought from DeepDiscount and I had a good experience. I bought Call of Duty MW2 Prestige Edition there. Everything was fine. Don't really see what's wrong with DeepDiscount.

Yeah it's NOT a new IP, it's just that this is the first game in the series to come out in a long time and it's been getting semi-decent reviews all-around. There's actually been quite a bit of buzz around it and it looks like a solid game with a heavier than normal story.

Oh, original link is give 404 error so maybe it sold out?...

Deepdiscount is hit or miss, I had both good and bad experience from them. Lately bad when it comes to pre-orders.

Speaking of Spec Ops, is this the Premium Edition free upgrade?

Those that "pre-ordered" were guaranteed to get a free upgrade to Premium Edition. There are probably unsold PE in stores.

The bad vibes for DeepDiscount come from a few things, mostly their long shipping times for movies (media mail), processing speed and lengthy delays should a particular order involve a price mistake; the latter happens far more often than it should.

Other than that, they sometimes have decent prices on media but don't expect them to arrive quickly.

Yeah, I'm also not a fan of DD. Ordered something and was charged the same day, got a shipping notification almost two months later. It was only $8, but still.

I'm active on a few forums. DD comes up with movie deals and I skip over any DD thread every time. I don't believe they're a real company, particularly from everything I've read.

Guys this will be in a bargain bin soon enough. It's pretty generic IMHO. the mp is nothing special also. I was really looking forward to this, played the first few levels, some mp and haven't touched it since.

I felt this way at first as well and since its not the greatest game if you push on a little more it gets better

Yeah I haven't totally written it off yet, just don't really have that urge to keep playing it. I do want to finish it quickly so I can sell it while the price is still decent.

Hate Deep Discount, but too good of a price to pass up. I was going to keep it from Gamefly, but this is $15 or so cheaper. Absolutely fantastic game, it's taken me completely by surprise. The single player is unlike anything else I've ever played. Considering how terrible the original MP beta was for this game, I had zero hopes for it, but right now it's already aiming for my GoTY or at least sleeper hit of 2012.

Story is the strength, gameplay is still above average if you ask me. Definitely one of the better surprises this year as I didn't expect what I got and had no concern for multiplayer.

I agree completely.... I think the story is real stong and I love how sand plays a part in the game..

my only problem is with the voice acting... does nolan north have to voice EVERY video game? Everytime he speaks I think of prince or persia and uncharted.. throws me out of the experience.

I've been ordering from DD for about 10 years. I've probably placed nearly 80 orders with them, mostly DVDs. The shipping usually takes around 2 weeks but recently I've noticed them coming faster. I've had about 5 orders cancelled or unfilled on their end. Their CSRs aren't very helpful but I've only had to deal with them a few times, and Ive always gotten satisfaction. The bottom line is I would rather deal with Amazon but if the price is right I don't hesitate to use DD.

Pretty good price, but don't expect this to actually be the Premium Edition like it says. They did the same thing with Dark Souls and getting a refund was a pain. And I've been trying to get myself removed from their weekly newsletter for months.

Still, I might get it just because it's a good deal and from what I've played, it's an excellent game. It's nothing amazing, but it's a hell of a lot better than most of the shooters that have come out in the last year. Multiplayer is irrelevant to me.
