DLC not explained,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Cry The Wild Expedition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
By Mr. Dissapointed, but I still rate Amazon.
The box art states "Includes 4 Games", the product description states Includes Far Cry Classic, Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. What people are neglecting to state is that Far Cry Classic and Blood Dragon are DLC.
I opened the case expecting 4 discs or at least all 4 games on discs.
As soon as I saw that 2 games are supplied with codes for download I traded the lot in, maybe I should have returned it for misleading information.
I had a nasty experience with DLC when I changed to a new Xbox, all my DLC went to demo mode.Even transfering licenses and all the other rigmarole that Microsoft puts you through didn't re-activate them. They would only work fully if I was connected to Xbox Live. The only fix was to download the whole (expletif) lot again to obtain the licenses.
I want my games on a Disc so I can delete them off my hard drive knowing there is a copy in a drawer somwhere (with a license).
Not cluttering up my hard drive or USB stick.
I recommend you only buy this box-set, if you can call it that, if you are happy with someone else keeping stuff you' ve paid for on a cloud somwhere (DLC).

The Microsoft site states that you may have to go into your download history after doing the electronic license transfer and download again. That is what I had to do, it was pretty fast but it was a faff on I'll give you that :)

The information about the downloadable games (DLC) was added AFTER my review.

I'm not bashing your review (I much prefer games on disc myself) but I changed to a new Xbox myself at the start of the year and it really wasn't as difficult to transfer my downloaded content as your implying it is.....even after you do the 'license transfer' thing, you can't immediately play your DLC offline...but if you just find the DLC you want to play offline either in your list of games or download history and select 'Download again', it'll just download a new license for that DLC (which takes literally about 3 seconds), and DOESN'T have to redownload the whole DLC again as it already detects this as still being on your HDD.
Unfortunateley, digital rights management is a necessary evil everybody has to put up with nowadays, but it's not quite as bleak as you made it seem.
I do completely agree that I'd rather not have a load of stuff cluttering up my HDD though, and wish they'd been on the discs instead.
