This review is from: Dishonored Xbox 360 Game
Pros: Dishonored is a game that truly impresses me on every level. First and foremost, Dishonored is made by Arkane and not Bethesda, so don't go in expecting Elder Scrolls or Fallout. Arkane was created with a wealth of experience by the likes of Harvey Smith (System Shock, Deus Ex, Thief), Ricardo Bare (Deus Ex, Thief, Epic Mickey), Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2), and the rest of Arkane (Arx Fatalis, Dark Messiah). As you can see, Dishonored was made by top tier talent, which is quite evident once you play the game.

This review is from: Last Story w/Art Book & CD Wii Game
Pros: The Last Story is a delightful RPG, featuring some of the best graphics and gameplay that I've experienced on the Nintendo Wii. The characters are charming, the gameplay quick and snappy using manual combat, and the environments richly detailed and beautifully mesmerizing. There's also an art book and soundtrack packed in a beautiful box.
Cons: Sadly, the beautiful box was crushed a bit. Do note, it wasn't crushed everywhere, mostly just on one corner, where the corner tore due to the pressure. I could've complained about it, but I didn't feel like sending it back and waiting. If it was worse, though, I probably would've.
This isn't the first time a game's been crushed while in transit from Newegg. I also ordered Max Payne 3 and it was demolished, with a cracked up case, torn artwork, etc. I was disappointed, but Newegg's customer service was great.
I do order a lot from Newegg, so having an issue every once in a while isn't so bad, but I wish they'd use better packaging for games in cardboard boxes and stuff. I mean, come on, they put my order of 50 CD-R's that cost $6.99 in a nice box.
Otherwise, Newegg's service and prices are unbeatable and I love 'em for it.
