I'm playing Far Cry 2 now. I actually really like it. I can see how others might find it tedious (missions are all very similar, you're constantly driving through similar-looking camps and killing people), but I really enjoy the combat. The game is very dynamic in that weather, time of day, etc. can all affect your battles, and there are limitless ways to clear a guard post. You can set fire to the place and shoot people as they run away. You can climb a hill and pick people off with your sniper rifle. You can drive into the middle, hop on your Jeep's turret, and mow everyone down. While the missions are all very similar, there are lots of different ways to go about completing the same objective.

In for Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust and Brother's in Arms: Hell's Highway.

Never played the first Leisure Suit Larry, but for $5 is it really that bad?

I want Leisure Suit Larry. I'm not above laughing at horrible fart jokes for $5.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

This is a new one and a heads up for anyone else. I had purchased 2 copies of Mario Power Tennis, one for myself and one as a gift. I got an e-mail from Customer Service saying they placed my order on hold until they can confirm I really wanted to order multiple copies of the same title. Never had that happen before, heads up for anyone else that may have picked up more than one of a title.

It got really annoying for me, I am about 80% done and it's just UGH!!! Good game but it gets old pretty quick, to me at least.

That's a sensible and considerate policy. I once accidentally ordered two copies of Ultimate Spiderman from them, so it's good to see that they're working to correct this kind of thing.

I suggest to anybody buying from GF, or pretty much any used game period that you install it to the hard drive to test if it works as soon as you get it.

I've had to return about 1/2 of my games to GF due to them having a dirty disc error somewhere. Don't trust the look of the disk either since they polish the scratches off/over. Chances are GF won't accept returns that are a few months old.

Ordered Far Cry 2 and Brothers in Arms on Thursday. It still hasn't shipped =/ I ordered Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed on Friday and it shipped on Friday. Oh well. Wondering if ordering them individually would have sped up the shipping time. Just a thought.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Same here. GF is usually pretty quick to ship when I buy something, but considering I paid about a buck for Condemned 2, and it is the holidays, I figure I wouldn't worry too much.

Not for nothing, but you apparently have some kind of unrealistic expectations when buying USED games. Hell, even some NEW games are bound to be duds. Just contact GF, and they will get you a different copy. Their games are guaranteed to work, so if they don't, they will fix the problem.

Ive been buying used games from ebay for 6 years and never had 1 problem and there always in great shape. Gamefly game should be labeled under EXTREMLY F UPED GAMES. But long as they do what you say and fix the issue im fine but shipping it back for $2 is kinda annoying. It says fulyl tested. Does that mean they pop it in see the logo and removed and ship it? If a game doesnt finish the install on the 360 it means the game is gonna f up and il have none of that.

That's not entirely true, I had a defective 007 QoS from them, contacted them to see if I can get another copy and they said they could only give a refund for the game, that they do not do exchanges or something like that, so I took QoS to my local video store and got it buffed for free and now it works, seems GF doesn't check their games and yet say they are guaranteed to work, funny.

You're comparing two completely different business models. GameFly is a rental service. Dozens of different people likely have rented the disc you're buying from them. If you honestly expect all of the rental copies they have to be in great shape, you probably should go with what you said in your first post and not buy from GF anymore.

I was not aware that they do not do exchanges, but that was not the point of my post, really. The point was that they will take care of you. Refunding you your money isn't as good as getting the game for the price you wanted, but still, they take care of the problem. It's not like you'll get a dud, and they will tell you to go screw.

As far as checking the games go, it's kind of unrealistic of you to expect them to test the millions of games they have in their various warehouses. They are working under the assumption that, if a person rents the disc and does not report any issues, the disc works. At the end of the day, their guarantee that the disc will work, and if it doesn't, they take care of it.

Yeah GameFly doesn't do exchanges, they just give refunds. I believe this is the case even if they still have it in stock.

I'm sad to hear people getting crap discs from GameFly. Over the last three years I've purchased probably about 13 games from GameFly (always older games that have been rented a number of times) and they've all been pristine (discs, cases and manuals all perfect).
