I bought it at $20 and it was well worth it. If you have ANY interest in the zombie genre, you need to buy this game.

Wish this was the price for the console versions, a much better buy than 25...

Aa.. I want to give in, but I get mixed feelings from all the negative comments I see about it. I still might, anyway

That's a hell of a price. The game is fine now. It had a lot of problems when it launched, but they've been ironed out for the most part.

You can beat zombies with nail-covered bats on an island that looks like it's straight out of the Far Cry/Crysis world... what can be so bad about that?

If you decide you like it, it's a damned steal at ten bucks. If you don't like it... just imagine you bought a steak to go from El Generico Chain Restaurant, and it jumped out of the styrofoam box and flew into traffic. It's a loss you could get over. Right?

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

It's about whether or not you will enjoy it. I wouldn't go by peoples opinions too much. Besides you can't go wrong for $10

I bought this when it was $12 on Amazon a while back... It does get monotonous after a while.

The most fun I had with it was playing with friends. If you're sticking to single player, it gets boring quick.

I did most of the side quests and was done in about 20 hours or so.

Can I activate it on Steam and then give the disc to someone else, or is Steam required to play it?

Doesn't look like the game is mac supported.

The Price is Right, OP! Thanks! I was just logging on to make sure this deal was posted.

Was this game faster-paced than Dead Rising? I found that to be a bit slow, I prefer the action of L4D.

As others have said, though: for $10 hard to go wrong.

Very much slower than Dead Rising but the plus side is coop but the downside are the little things like the bugs and if you get nauseated easily by those old school shooters than this will be relatively unplayable for some people.

I think all three of those games are vastly different. I've got zero interest in Dead Rising or Left 4 Dead, this appears to be more of an actual adventure..

Everyone always uses that argument here ("the price of a burger").

Unfortunately, I usually still end up buying the burger as well.

Thanks OP, in for one. Was hoping this would show up on Amazon for $10-15 so I could use my $5 coupon, but I figure $10 is almost as good a price as $5. Very happy it's steamworks, I have no more room for boxes.
