wth that is so funny didn't this game just came out a week ago. It seems lots of game right now are dropping rapidly to stay competitive on the barrage of good games coming out. Expect more price drops. This is the same thing happened in the new brothers in arms oh well good for us. Thanks op.

Its 49.99 in stores this week, now down to 39.99.

I called it.. it should be 20 bucks in less than three weeks at Target :)

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

Guess this will be the last Blitz game we see for awhile.

I'll prolly pick this up when It's $20 or less. At this rate that might be by Xmas.

Wow that was fast. Mine came from gamefly on the 17th and I have already finished the campaign mode. There is really not a hell of a lot to do after that unless you want to play online. The game was fun but Midway was out of their mind to charge 59.99 for it. It should have been released for 39.99. Regardless I would still not buy it unless it was 20 bucks.

IGN really didn't like the game very much.

If reviews are really important to you, then you would see 7.5 out of 10 on GS with around 7's from most places.

I haven't played the game, so I have no comment.

Quickest drop would still be Beowolf wouldn't it? Or if wasn't the quickest drop, it was one of the most severe price drops in recent history

it was the sequel that nobody asked for.

Beowulf was exactly one month, dropped from $59.99 to $19.99. Never have seen a game system bypass the 49, 39 and 29 mark and go right to $19.99 like that.

I picked it up used for $7. Ugh, bad choice.

Crap, I just bought it for $50 at Best Buy... although to be fair, I'm really enjoying the game and completely disagree with the review IGN gave it.

I liked the first game so I will pick this up once it reaches the sub $15.00 mark. I still have plenty of Madden still to play.

It is most likely not a good game. To come out at this time of the year with blockbuster titles around it doesn't help it's case much. I agree 20 bucks around christmas

I still maintain that IGN hardly played the game before they gave it that review. Some of the things that they talked about in the game were flat out wrong.

The injury mini-games work well and remain fun through each game (mainly because they're not used all that often) but the late hit beat downs get old in a hurry. The least they could have done was have a quick time event trigger rather than the overly simplistic "mash A as fast as you can" prompt that comes up now. It's a good way to drain stamina from your opponent's key players but it's so boring you won't want to bother before long.


That paragraph pretty much sums up that he didn't play the game for long. Injuries and late hits are a major part of the game. If you don't injure players, you can't achieve certain objectives in the game. If you don't use late hits, you have a harder time filling up your meter, which allows you to pull off bigger plays.

You can give a game a low score, but when "I got bored" becomes your reason for marking down the game... it just seems to indicate that you didn't want to play it in the first place.

Other reviews have talked about the rubber-band AI, which can be true... but I would maintain that it can be overcome by injuring players on the other team, which IGN thought was too boring to bother with.

I really enjoyed the game. I got through the single player campaign in about a week, but I enjoyed it. Online was a lot of fun as well.
