The fact that this game is competent and has a single-player campaign clocking in at 20 hours (or more) makes it even more impressive in this era of the 6-8 hour solo campaign (which doesn't mean concentrated quality, of course).

I had to get it, even though I just pounced on the superior Fracture a couple days ago.

Heh.

Hey, Biff--what's that?

I think it's worth it. At $40 it's a STEEL!

Yeah, after hearing how fun this game is and people speaking highly of it, I jumped on this sale. So many games, so little time.

Yeah, the "thrust" back pack launches you in a pretty much straight forward trajectory and yes you end up "head butting" through the roof (somehow you can thrust downwards and bust through the lower floors can't figure that out yet). As with the Rhino backpack that plows through walls I guess it just makes a forcefield to protect you. Who cares, it's fun.

I also like the stealth backpack. Sledgehammer-wielding invisible ninja!

I may be one of the few people waiting for another drop on this.
This and Saints Row 2 i've been waiting to hit at least $25 range. Only a matter o' time.

FYI: If you buy it using Bing Cashback you'll get an additional 2.5% refunded to you. Not much but better in your pocket than in someone else's.

Given that this just came out less than a month ago, I think its fairly unlikely that it will be lower than $39.99 new anytime soon. It will be cheaper used if Gamestop has another B2G1 sale and you have an edge card but I think this new price will hold up well for a month or two at the least.

Admittedly I don't know the sales numbers but Red Faction: Guerrilla has been one of the most highly-reviewed games of the year.

Of course I could just be trying to rationalize adding yet another game to my already-too-large library.

Incredibly tempting, especially after hearing Cheapy and Wombat talk about it so much, but I'm going to hold off for now. Too many games in my backlog already, and I want to get through at least a few of them before some of the games I NEED on Day 1 come out (Brutal Legends, Heavy Rain, Scribblenauts, etc.....)

Fuck what to do... I love the price, loved the RF 1 & 2, and have heard nothing but good things about this. However I have a huge backlog along with my buddy's bachelor party next month (meaning I need to save some money)...

Guess I could ebay some of the games on my TL to compensate...

no way this is bargain bin, it is selling well and has a lot of hype behind it. Remember when Cod World at War came out and it was being sold at 39.99? It is a special deal that comes by at launch and you won't see it again until at least another 3 or so months from now.

I highly recommend this game after buying it when it was on special last time. The destruction aspect is really revolutionary and it ranslates over to multiplayer beautifully. It is a standard you'll start expecting in every game from now on.

This game is incredible. At $39.99 it's a solid buy for a new release.

I'm also playing and like this game. I just don't like one thing. When I use a weapon to break down walls, it's annoying that the chunks are almost exactly in the shape of squares. I assume this is the physics engine, and really not an issue, just an annoyance.

I'm in for one - thanks op.

Was looking for a new game to play now that I've wrapped up Resident Evil 5 (aside from some achievement hunting). I really liked the Red Faction demo and both Cheapy & Wombat have given the game their approval for what that's worth. Looking forward to it

Anyone know if any B&M stores will match this price? I've got some gift cards that need used and since I'm saving for a house the wife would be less than happy to see a $40 charge that was for a game.

Haven't played it, yet, but the reviews definitely point towards this being well worth the $40. I wouldn't hesitate, if I wasn't already sitting on a big backlog.

I should have stayed away but I have to support achievements that are actually about having fun rather than grinding through bad AI and cheap damage systems (I'm looking at you expert difficulty).

That and the great reviews, way better than expected demo, and excellent MP and I figure (hope) it will have a long online life.
