Good afternoon, Bargainmoosers! Game Access currently has a good deal on used copies of Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 video game system. Originally $19.99, you can now purchase this game for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). That's a pretty sweet deal! This game was also quite popular when it was originally released, so if you've never played it before, this may be a good chance to try it out.
Far Cry 3 is a quality first person shooter for the Xbox 360. It gets rave reviews from both critics and gamers alike, and it currently has a score of 91 on Metacritic - that's no easy feat! It's a title that continually gets praised to this day.
So I'd like to take this opportunity to share a story that's related to this game. Early last year, I decided to randomly pick up some Taco Bell at a shopping mall - it had been a long while since I'd bitten into some delicious salty tacos, and I had a particular craving for Fries Supreme. So Taco Bell was running a promotion where you can get the chance to win a PS3 and some other assorted prizes, and when I removed the coupon from the side of my soft drink, I found out that I won Far Cry 3 for the Playstation 3!
This was a very recent release at the time, and I was surprised that I actually won a decent prize from one of those contests! Unfortunately, reality set in - I didn't have a PS3 system at the time! I just had an Xbox 360. After I eventually received this game in the mail, I ended up selling it on Kijiji for $20 off the retail price at the time - at least someone else was able to enjoy it, and I was able to afford more tacos and Fries Supreme from Taco Bell!
If you were to buy Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 at Best Buy, it would cost you $19.99 (plus shipping), and it's currently $17.88 at Amazon (plus shipping). Listed below is a brief review of Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 from a satisfied Game Access customer:
The organic nature of the open world of Far Cry 3 is what won me over. The island simply feels alive, from the animals, weather, people and activities to accomplish, it's a terrific experience. The story is also a great time, but the world is really the draw here.
This deal will expire before midnight, so if you're looking for an affordable game to try out for the Xbox 360 system, then you should consider getting Far Cry 3. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!
