Game is getting a 90 minute demo by the end of the month. Glad they are giving a decent sized taste to people and not like 10 minutes, which probably wouldn't work for the game.

Glad to hear this. I'm on the fence about the game, and am REALLY leaning towards it thanks to the lowered price point on Amazon.

To people that own the game: $28 for it (after promo credit) - good price/great price/definitely well worth it? I've read reviews, but I tend to favor fellow gamers' opinions over 'professional' reviewers. Note: I adore Zelda and God of War :D

You'll love it. It is easily worth $28.

Wow at the price. Is this a long term price drop? (39.99 that is)

I think it's a drop, at least at GS, as I just got is used @ 34.99 (my EDGE card expired in January!)
Also found one with a mystery code!

This is what I'm wondering as well, which is one reason I'm leaning toward getting it. If it's permanent, I could easily just wait until GS does a 20% PS3 coupon so I could burn some of my rarely used GS credit. On the other hand, if it's temporary, it could be quite a bit until it gets a substantial drop (though this is a THQ game)

@Serpentor
I just sent this to Amazon for a trade-in. But I platinum'd it first ;)
1) nothing, i repeat, NOTHING carries over to another playthrough, EXCEPT for the abyssal armor, and you'll be asked specifically if you want to do it.
2) i played and collected everything on normal and used the Abyssal armor on apocalyptic. you can do the same thing for easy. some bosses still hit me for a shitload of damage so i would definitely suggest using the abyssal armor on apocalyptic.
3) for aerial predator, rapid fire is exactly what it sounds like. you just keep hitting the fire button (R2 on the PS3) VERY fast.

Anyone feel like the targeting in this game kinda sucks? Camera is also zoomed in too much imo.

Yeah on both, especially on the latter. War is just a damn tank, and he takes up way too much of the screen. Camera really needed to be back several more feet.

I finished the game a few weeks ago, so I don't fully remember the controls, but I think you targeted and then had to use the stick to change targets, right? I remember thinking it might have worked better to just keep hitting the lock-on button to cycle targets.

How long does this game take to beat? I just got it Yesterday from Gamestop.com and I'd like to beat it and trade it back to Gamestop while the TIV is still high.

Well I figure Id just play through the story mode and get a good feel for the game and then trade it in.

Then maybe I'd pick it back up when it hits clearance or during a b2g1.

So just a basic play through without worrying about getting everything in the game done at this point. How long would that take?

eh I'd say maybe 20 hours Dahk. It's a good game, its basically a Zelda game with better combat.

I would say its closer to 14-16 hours. I was around 14.5 hours
Spoiler
right before the final boss, and decided to go back and finish up all the trophies before beating the game. I'm now at about 17 hours, and only have to finish leveling the two weapons before continuing on. I was basically just going straight through the story, and not worrying about doing anything extra, so ymmv.

It has flashier combat, but not better. The game mechanics are nowhere as polished as Zelda or GoW. Take the camera for example, it is so zoomed in that whenever you see an enemy coming from the behind, they are going to land a hit on you, this is esp the case with larger mobs.

I finished in 12 hours. The only thing I went out of my way to collect was the Abyssal Armor; in short, I was playing for the story.

That part was okay, but you can miss the trophy if you don't do it just right. :bomb:

Finally beat it. The end was a little confusing but that's because it's been 2 months since I played it (my TV in my dorm is crappy. Wanted to beat this on my big screen at home). The last few seconds of the final scene are pretty awesome.

Just started playing it. Enjoying it thus far and glad that it was a success for the studio (as their first game).

Anyone have tips on what the best thing to spend souls on is?

Hah, I honestly don't remember exactly how I spent everything, but I can give you some tips:

I didn't even use all the attacks you can buy for all the weapons, but you need them all for the All Weapons Upgraded Trophy. Don't pay the 1k for the scythe when you can enter the code "The Hollow Lord" (without quotes) in the in-game options menu (accessible from somewhere in your inventory) for a free Harvester scythe.

You don't have to upgrade your Wrath spells all the way for the All Spells Learned Trophy, but you do need to purchase the lvl 1 forms to at least unlock all four Wrath powers. Also, Stoneskin's the only one worth upgrading, I think.

Anyone want to try and sell me on this game?

I played through the demo and it felt like I was waiting for the Ice Age to end, the three things that came to mind while playing were bland, tedious, and is it ever going to end.

I had to utterly force myself to finish the demo because I knew that if I didn't I would never pick it up again and play through it. Btw, the demo took me about 2 1/2 hours to play all the way and when I was done the first thing I did was delete it and not look back.

But since it is on sale next week for a decent price at Kmart I thought I'd reevaluated my stance. I'm still not convinced it's worth $30, sub-$20 or even at all, maybe in a few years down the road for $10-15, I'd give it a shot. But I still need a reason to buy it, keep it on the list and not scratch it off permanently.

So if anyone has any solid reasons why I should give the full version a chance I'd appreciate it.

I like Zelda and I like GoW, but I really didn't like this...so convince me why I should play it. Please.

The 1st dungeon is the weakest part of the game, plus, you don't really get a sense of the story/voice acting-which are both strong
darksiders keeps getting better the more you progress, and there are a few characters and items later in the game that really open it up and make you feel powerful
without spoiling anything, there are a few kickass moments towards the end that are well scripted and intelligent

I just picked this up a couple of nights ago again, after getting rid of it just before God Of War 3 came out. But I had my PS3 restart on me yet again when I was at the title screen and tried quitting out via pressing the PS button.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
