Here is the deal . . .

Blazing Angels came completely in english. The cover artwork is completely in english. The instructions are in english. The game booted up fine and worked perfectly on xbox live with no problems.

The only thing I notived is the screen printing on the disc isn't as smooth as the games from the states. It still has the official seal on it.

The other two differences I can see with the game is after boot up it does display the 12+ age warning similar to our ESRB rating system and the back of the cover artwork has the same bar code but says made in Sinapore instead of proof of purchase.

I will now be purchasingf Tomb Raider Legend from Play-Asia next!

After further review of my copy of "Far Cry" it does say "Made in Singapore" below the barcode, but that seems to be the only difference i can find.

Thanks for the heads up all! I ordered Tomb Raider Legend and Tekken 5 for $49.80. Then realized I could pay via Pay Pal and save $5 off a $40+ order. Went ahead and paid via my credit card, and WITH shipping my order was $50.40. Not bad for 2 games, eh? :D

When did it say it was expected to ship Tomb Raider? When I ordered it, I checked my order and it stated that the estimated ship date was May 2nd. :wall: Did it say this for anyone else?

Thanks for updating with your experience, and I have a couple of questions:

does anyone know if the bonus disk with quake 4 from play asia work with a US 360? Also is that big red warning on the cover a sticker that can be removed or is it printed onto the cover art?

Thanks all.

Thanks for the info. I bit on FCI:P. I'll be anxiously waiting to check it out. This could be a very nice "go to" site for 360 owners in the coming years.

does play asia allow you to cancel orders before they ship? I emailed them but there's no option to cancel or number to call (since they're in asia) but I saw the EBay prices for Far Cry are anywhere from 22-40 and im not that crazy to have the game immediately.

The Best Buy 2 for 30 greatest hits are my gaming budget for this week.

I just ordered Tomb Raider and Quake 4, do you think the Quake 4 bonus disc will work in American systems?

Also how long untill they check to see if Battlefield 2:MC will work North American systems?

That's sounds like a good deal for me as well.

Oh, this could be a problem:

All EA games are region encoded. You have to buy that here in the states.

I finally got my copy of Far Cry in today, and it's just like everyone else has said. It's exactly the same as the American version except for the "Made in Singapore" under the UPC, and it works just fine on Live. I'm now considering ordering Tomb Raider as well. I'm happy that the versions are all the same, but at the same time I'm annoyed that we're basically getting raped over here for that extra $20. :bomb:
