Really fun game IMO. Unique setting and punching a birdman in the face is satisfying. Well worth it at this price.

Has Steam achievements and Steam Cloud integration.

Great game!

For $5.10 it's definitely at least worth play through. Highly recommended. :bouncy:

There's a free demo available for anyone on the fence. If you're open to bizarre or "different" games it's hard to pass this up.

You use your fists most of the time. You do get weapons tho. But some of them break after a while.

No, not at all. It's a linear and plot-driven first-person melee combat (well, there are a few ranged weapons, but it's secondary to the melee) game.

It's one of my absolute favorite PC games of 2009, but I suppose it's not for everyone. I would recommend that everyone at least try the demo.

It should be mentioned that an improved version is coming to XBLA and that the developer has made no mention of adding the new content to the PC version. But still, for $5, who cares?

Edit: I stand corrected (albeit lamely @ CoffeeEdge)

From someone asking if it was coming to PC at http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=978530:

The answer should be yes, but after the release of the XBLA build... some time after. The 'Ultimate Edition' will be exclusive for the XBLA for a while.

Could see this being between $2.00-$4.00 during the X-Mas sale, but the price is right for me.

I have this game already, and I definately agree. Its an odd but worthy experience for $5. I do have a question though that maybe someone here knows. Is it possible to buy this game as a gift, send it to my own personal e-mail, and then at Christmas give that e-mail to a friend as a XMAS gift? Or does it tie the game to whatever e-mail account they have on file for Steam and I would basically be gifting the game to myself...already owning it? Just wondered because I want to gift it but don't want them to get the game just yet.

Yeah I don't think that would work. But there is a menu that lets you manage gifts and guest passes. So you can buy a copy as a gift now and just let it sit there until you want to gift it to your friend.

Oh sure, like I was deliberately spreading misinformation. Nor did I say anything negative about the game - just mentioned the XBLA game's improvements.
It's not like the info you mention is heavily advertised - there's been news stories about the XBLA game, but I've seen none that mention the PC getting the same features patched.
Forgive me for not reading every forum post out there. :P

Are you sure about that? Very few games will let you hold onto a gift copy.

I really enjoyed the characters and story. The combat wasn't as much fun as I imagined when watching previews.
Still, I was happy to get it when it was full price, and am throwing in my voice to anyone on the fence at the current price.
It's not for everyone, but it's still a solid title.

I guess anything is possible, but I think that people need to remember that during the last Holiday sale, while there were a couple dozen items for 25% off, and a couple dozen items for 50-75% off, the vast majority of the Steam catalog (several hundred titles) was only discounted by 10%.

I mean, I still expect it to be a great sale, but I have been seeing people here and especially on the Steam forums talking about this year's upcoming holiday sale for months, like it is this legendary thing, like they're expecting to get every game on their personal wishlists for like 85% off or something, and I think that maybe people are letting their expectations run a bit wild for this one.

Yeah, sure, maybe ZC will end up being two bucks during the holiday sale, for all we know, but maybe it'll be $13.49, ya know? All I'm saying is that anyone who wants to play this game really out to grab it now, if you ask me. Games don't get much better than this for $5.

Oh sure, like I was deliberately spreading misinformation. Nor did I say anything negative about the game - just mentioned the XBLA game's improvements.

Heh, sorry if it sounded like I was attacking you or claiming you were intentionally spreading misinformation or something; I was just teasing. ;)

I do, however, really want to make sure that people don't go getting the wrong idea about the new Ultimate Edition content. It's just that PC gamers can be a bit, uh, shall we say, cripplingly and profoundly fucktarded when they think that they're being treated unfairly in favor of consoles or whatever, and I don't want some raging PC fanboy to skip out on this wonderful game because he thinks that the developers are a bunch of "console sell-out whores who hate PC gaming" or whatever. :P

If Portal goes on sale between now and Christmas, this is exactly what I intend to do. I've read their Knowledge Base article on gifting, and it looks like it would work. Gifts don't expire, and you can resend an invite to someone else as long as it hasn't been redeemed.

I think I'm going to have to get this. And I think this game is supposed to allow you to mess with the resources in Gmod, a la TF2, HF2 and all the other Valve Source games.
