Excite Truck was a launch game for the Wii way back in 2006, and since then I’ve kind of grown to like the game without every playing it. I know I’ve said it before on past Sunday Roundups (SRs?) that I do enjoy owning launch titles, but as far as games go racing games aren’t really too exciting for me. Which makes it even more interesting that I decided to pick up two this week…
|Far Cry: Vengeance
Release Date: December 12th, 2006
Purchased at: GameStop (Cupertino, CA – FREE!)
The bonus game from a Buy 2 Get 1 Free promotion, Far Cry Vengeance could be considered another Wii launch game seeing as it came out just a few weeks after the console’s release. I remember the game’s original release and the hype around the game because it was a big third part Wii exclusive, but then the gameplay was blah and most people just passed on it. That’s likely why the game was under $5 when I saw it. Frankly Far Cry Vengeance isn’t a game I’d likely buy, but there wasn’t anything else under $5 that I really wanted. So consider yourself lucky, random dude on the front cover!
