I'm surprised that Fight Night Round 4 isn't selling, is it that bad?


I think most people wouldn't buy it at 14.99.

How's spiderman web of shadows?


If you are a fan of Spider-man game series, you will definitely like it since the game focuses on combat. The game gates repetitive, but upgrades keep you from the game being extremely boring. You will see unpolished animation particularly related to physics and web-swinging here and there.
Later in the game, where the city is full of infected people the game doesn't run on 30 fps and a bit choppy but never ruins the fun.

If you are not a Spider-man fan, you will call it an average game or even worse. It is cool to swing around New York city, but there isn't any free-roaming you would expect in Prototype or GTA. There are optional goals you can complete, but it's not fun and frustrating a bit and whether you are done or in progress they are gone when you move on to the next main goal.

Expect 10 hours to complete the achievement of 1000G, but that's only when you use save feature well. Because there are four endings you gotta clear the game at least twice or four times if you don't use save feature.

Not anymore!

I noticed a restock myself and had a few games in my cart to order and one by one they increased in price as I went to check out. =(

I just snatched up Fight Night Round 4. Great deal for $9. I used a $5 off coupon.
Spider-Man Web of Shadows is fun but has many glaring technical issues that fans will overlook. If you aren't a fan then you most likely won't enjoy the game.

Got Wolverine in, and as expected, it's scratched to absolute shit.

I saw that earlier today. I picked up Godfather 2 PS3 for $8 after my $5 coupon.
To each his own.

I got all of my games today, about a week after ordering. They were all brand new -- the security stickers on the side and botton were cut and that's the only part of each game that was touched.

Sometimes I wonder what some people's definition of "scratched to shit" is. I've been buying from Gamefly for several years and they've all been great, especially compared to Gamestop.

i'm pretty sure that all the games from GF come with the security stickers. i just got transformers and it has it as well. Wouldn't make sense for them to take them off.

Oh, it was my first time dealing with them, and since I usually buy used games from GameStop, having the security sticker on a used game was a first for me.

I ordered X-Men Origins: Wolverine from this sale and received my copy in excellent condition. This the second time I ordered from Gamefly and I will be using them for used games over Gamestop from now on.

agreed.....my only regret is that i haven't purchased more games from them.....great pricing and games are always in immaculate condition.....my most impressive haul to date? i got prinny can i really be the hero for 14.99 with music cd and the actual prinny box in perfect condition....gfly guaranteed the cd but i wasn't expecting the box.....just another reason why i love buying from gfly.

A lot of people expect used games to look new, i.e. a pristine shining surface staring back at them. Those people are the reason my eBay auctions simply say that the disc looks fine and plays great on my 360/PS3. I never make any representations about scratches or lack thereof.

Hmmm.....My 360 games were scratched to shit, but I am picky about my games. I wish I only bought PS3 games because you can't scratch those. I guess some of us are more anal than others when it comes to scratches.

Yes. GF does sell games year round. However, the end of the year sale is always the best sale of the whole year.

Got my copy of Call of Juarez in perfect condition. It seemed to take longer to receive it this time - I ordered on Dec. 26 and just got it. Oh well, I can't complain for $12.XX shipped.

Signed for it? I've ordered many games from GF, and they've all come USPS.

Yeah, I've never gotten anything from GF that didn't come via USPS. Though, the issues they have had with the USPS are well-documented, so perhaps in areas with a high loss or damage rate they ship games, at least ones they have sold, via another service.

Got my games from GF, took about 1 full week. It came by FedEx. All cases and manuals are brand new, the games all work with plenty of scratches all over them, nothing deep mostly light scratches from their mailers and usage. I took all the games and traded them in at Gamestop for the $20+edge card deal. Paid $100 for 9 games and received $170 credit and renewed my edge card w/ game informer sub.

The only game I may have wanted to keep was out of stock(MK vs DC).
Darksiders and Bayonetta seem to be the best choices or maybe a new DSi.

I actually had to get my money back for Gears of War and Resident Evil 5. Back in early December when they were 10 and 13, respectively. I ordered them and waited a couple weeks for them but they never showed. Luckily Gamefly just refunded my money saying they were lost in the mail. I was a little surprised since this never happens with them.
