Ended up getting Kane and Lynch and Frontlines. Decided to pass on Turok for now. I've already bought RSV:2 and Army of Two from Gamefly. Can't wait to see what's next, even though I sure don't need to spend any more money :D

Look like gamefly is having a hell of a few deals. Just got Amry of Two and R6V 2. Now I am thinking about getting Kane and Lynch and Frontlines. Might consider Turok since I heard it is a decent game.

Are there enough people playing Frontlines online?


As already stated, yes. This months OXM ranked some "older" games for online viability and they ranked this more viable online than GTA4. I got it on BF and it is fun, like SW: Battlefront. I haven't really played Battlefield, but I guess its closer to that and has some of the same developers.

And for those talking about BB next week, isn't it the PC version on sale? Which I may consider getting as well but probably not.

Anyway, as far as this sale goes I already have all of them either on 360 or GfW, and I got all of them cheap new.

EDIT: yeah, the earlier posts are not correct, the Frontlines sale next week at BB is ONLY the PC version. For those that care, it is GfW, but its not cross-platform, and isn't on Live, so no achievements either.

Frontlines can be had new for $10. It's regularly $10 at Gamestop. It is worth $10.


Huh? Online it shows $30. And I already stated the BB sale next week is only for Windows.

Thanks. Hope K&L is good. FF2 got canceled in place of this and I loved Freedom Fighters.

Front Lines Fuel Of War is the best one of the bunch.
well worth more than $10.
The MP is the reason to get this, but even the sp is enjoyable (specially for the price)

I'd love to see that list. Is there a copy of it online?

Frontlines multiplayer was a blast. I stopped playing when Battlefield: Bad Company came out. But if the online community is still live, I might check it out again.

Frontlines single player was fun too. It's definitely no COD, and a step below Battlefield: BC. But it's an above-average game and easily worth $10. I paid full price on release date, and was happy with my purchase.

That is odd. I received my copy 4 days after I made my order. Try calling customer service.


Do you know the # or where on the site I can find it? I tried the contact us button and it just takes me to a form to send to them. When I choose "where's my game" after I tried to send it to them, I got a message asking to wait at least 7 days before I bug them. If it's not here today it would be nice to talk to someone as opposed to waiting for an email response.

I hope so since I just bought it from GameFly last week for $14.99.

You always know that the prices are going to drop sometime but it burns your butt a bit more when it happens before you've even played the game! :bomb:

I picked up Turok and Frontlines, I would have picked up K&L but I already had gotten it on Target clearance a few months ago.

These deals are killing me.

In the past few weeks I have bought:

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts
Gears of War 2
Star Wars: Force Unleashed
Dead Space
Left 4 Dead
Dark Sector
Unreal Tournament 3
Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Sonic Unleashed
Saint's Row 2
Fable 2
Turok
Frontlines: Fuel of War
Guitar Hero 2 Bundle + 2 Guitars

Thinking about my poor backlog makes me sick...

Not sure and I mistyped my acronym. It was in OXM. The only other game that had much life was Shadowrun, which I also ordered in the past week. Somebody else might remember the duds.

Yeah, I just found the article in OXM (Jan 2009 - Page 54-55). Frontlines got the best review. Looks like there was 100-250 players every time they played online. Not bad.

Here's the rest of the list:

STILL ALIVE
Frontlines
Shadowrun

BARELY BREATHING
Ace Combat 6
Unreal Tournament 3

FLATLINED
GTA 4
Stranglehold
Quake Wars
The Club

Cyco, I was in the same boat as you and I made a thread about it in the Video Game Deal discussion thread.

Ironically, the same day I made that thread is the same day it shipped, which was Monday(I still haven't received it yet.)

When did you order and at what time? My thinking is that if you ordered the game later in the day i.e. afternoon or what not, it's taking longer to ship, since the majority of the people who posted in my thread had recieved their copies already. I ordered in the afternoon and that's the only reasoning I can think of? where are you from, maybe it has to do with location too? I'm from Jersey and I know the closest warehouse from GF is somewhere in Pennsylvania, I think Pittsburgh?

I got the "game shipped" email on the 3rd. I think I bought it in the afternoon. I don't remember though. I'm in Texas and I have no clue if there is a warehouse near by. I wish they did like everyone else that does shipping and have a way to show shipping status.

Some of these games (K & L, Army of Two etc.) I would never buy at full price. In fact I may have mocked them when they first came out, vowing never to buy them.

But dang does it feel good to get such good deals! It must be a CAG thing, I get a natural high getting such good deals and hoarding all these backlog games.

Not to mention Gamefly's used games come in such great condition they often look better than "new" games from Gamestop (actually not that hard to do). I love opening my mailbox and seeing that little manilla envelope from Gamefly, I need help.

You are too kind! I would have said it was worth 50 cents :) The controls alone are enough to ruin that entire game.

Picked up Kane & Lynch and Turok... for 10 bucks, those two games seem to be good enough to try. Still on the fence about Frontlines.

Okay - I bought a copy of Turok. Unless some super-awesome deal comes up, this is my last game purchase of 2008. On the plus side, if the game sucks, Gamefly is trading the game back for $9.

Btw, I did get one of my two Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 games in the mail yesterday. The game I got was flawless - but oddly enough the game case was cracked. Oh well. Hope my other copy is equally nice-looking. Hopefully it's in the mail today.

If anyone's trying to get Frontlines, and they want a new copy, BB is having it on sale for $9.99 starting on Sunday. Listed in Speedy's weekly ad.

PMing at CC would get it for $7.99 + tax, as they have it for $29.99.
