5.0 out of 5 stars Saturday and still no game?, 1 Dec. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Far Cry 3 - The Lost Expeditions Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This rant has nothing to do with the quality of Far Cry 3 or the developers or publishers.

I pre-ordered this back in August as I was extremely excited about it and am a huge fan of video-games in general.

I was hesitant to use Amazon as I pre-ordered Bioshock 2 back in 2010 and waited 2 weeks after the release date for my pre-order. I eventually cancelled the order and bought it off Steam.

Low and behold the first game I order since then and their delivery service screws up and my copy of Far Cry 3 is sitting in a Yodel depot in Dartford.

Personally I am not going to use Amazon again for anything until they change their delivery policy.

Please sort this out Amazon, I have sent your customer services a message but deemed it necessary to post over these pages about my issue as I don't want people to have to deal with waiting for something like I am even though you'd think by pre-ordering you would have some kind of priority.

I feel for you! Amazon have let me down once too often, so much so I now go to my local Game store. Just be safe in the knowledge it will be well worth the wait :)

Probably the only way Amazon may respond is voicing your complaint in a review. People comment on positive deliveries in reviews so you are in no way infringing a review based on Amazon's delivery service of a product bought from them. Reviews are often used for buyers in all facets which can influence a business either way, so good on you.

I know gamers expect holistic review scores on game analysis alone but I know Amazon is no IGN but a great store that can make great strides with feedback that collectively can improve standards to customer expectations.
The real problem is when gamers review a game months before a release that they have no baseful facts on, only than to draw positive expectations that may be substantially different on a games release.
