Well, it appears we have our first games to drop to $20 for the Wii. Unfortunately, they suck. But since they technically qualify as a deal, I figured I'd post. Hopefully some "good" games will drop next.

Open Season:

Note that they're both Ubisoft games, the king of quick price drops.

It never ends and there's always somebody out there with better shit than you, explain this to him while you put your foot in his ass. Violence is the only answer sometimes. Most of the time. All the time.

Ten dollars adds up quite quickly if there's 2-3 Wii games you're looking for.

I'd buy Far Cry for $20. It's the best FPS on Wii, mechanics/control wise. from a Design perspective, not so good. It really recieved a lot of undeserved flak, considering how much better control it had than red steel.

Have you played the new MOH yet? You may want to rethink that statement after you have.

No, I haven't played the new MoH FPS, since it just came out and I don't buy single player FPS games for $50. Wii games should really come out at $30. I don't see myself buying many 3rd party games for $50..

Is MoH really good though? That's a good thing to hear. The 1up guys were saying on their podcast that it looked worse than the PS2 version, though, which I thought a bit odd.

I'll have to pick up Far Cry in store tomorrow....if I hate it I'll trade it in with another Wii game and get Trauma Center or pre-order Paper Mario (if possible).

The single player aspects of Far Cry were pretty terrible. I only gave it a rental to try out the control schemes, since I'm a huge fan of FPS' and Wii controls, but from my limited play I could see all the faults with the game. You can easily dispatch enemies who aren't facing you by walking straight up behind them, firing loudly past their ears if you'd like, and then meleeing them in the back. Along with pretty ugly visuals and very poor level layout/design (basically walking along a bland jungle path, fighting a group of 3 or 4 enemies every so often until a building, and repeat...) it deserved it's low scores IMO.

However...the multiplayer was a huge surprise. Personally, I thought the control scheme worked very well; it was pretty easy to aim and manuever, which is the most important aspect of multiplayer. For $20 I'd definitely buy this if you have someone who's into the Wii and willing to play with you, since it's definitely a fun time multiplayer-wise.

And by the way, MoH also has 4 player multiplayer to the person who said they don't buy single player games. It's the main reason I'm picking it up soon.


P.S. Is there some way you could price match this at BB and use the $5 off coupon? I just love using those things...

but you have to pay tax for the 2 $20 games and thats like $3.50. Might as well just user a Gamer's gift card at best buy

bah thanks for the heads up but i hated Far cry. Out of the three Wii FPS i played ( Red steel and COD3) Far cry was the worset and that is saying a lot in my book as all three games were poor.

Pretty close to being about to buy Far Cry for 10, which is what I would want.

after playing red steel I have serious doubts with FPS with the Wii. I loved Wii Sports and Wii Play (I don't care what the reviewers say it's an awesome game packed in with the controller!!) but Red Steel just made me hurl chunks. Awful controls and 1st generation GCN graphics don't cut it. Especially after experiencing TP in full 480p goodness!!!

I like the FPS controls on Wii.. just no good actual games have used the controls yet. FarCry was boring and predictable, and ugly, red steel was the same, throwing small groups of enemies at you, broken up by a sword battle. And Call of Duty 3 was pretty boring too.

I think Metroid Prime will show us how it should be done.

I hope you at least gave it two hours to get into the game. Its actually decent not great but decent. My favorite part was running around in the dark fun house with the mimes and mannequins.

From what I've played, Red Steel was pretty damn fun for the four hours. But like many other people's Wii I've yet to really play with it alot lately. heh. I was thinking of buying Far Cry just because It's so damn cheap, but I know Rival Swords would be the better buy at $20. Hmm. Decisions. Decisions...

It's just that simple.

About damn time something dropped to $20. While they may suck, it saves me some money on Sonic and the Secret Rings. Buying a used version might be logical if the store by me actually had any copies and a new one with the trade in offer would actually save me about $10.

If the used prices actually drop, I'd probably flip these for SPM... assuming the standard $18 used price, that'd be about $33 after tax and edge, a $17 to $20 saving (depending upon tax) on SPM.

Yeah wampa8jedi it's $17.99 used, I found out in store today....

The trade in 2 for 1 deal is good through at least the second week of April so hopefully this means a $36 Super Paper Mario fro me :)

Now that I think about it, buying them used and then later on trading them in would save me close to $20. :)

Both are still listed as $34.99 used on the web site. Do they ring up as $17.99 in-store, or do you have to point at that new copies are $19.99 so that they can manually adjust them?
