Loved Shattered Dimensions, but still having trouble biting on Edge of Time after videos I've seen of it. Knowing that Beenox had their b-team working on it while the SD guys worked on the new game that hits today doesn't help either.

I rather disliked Edge of Time. How can you have a Spider-Man game where the whole damn thing takes place INSIDE A BUILDING?!

Great start, I really enjoyed Shattered Dimension before my PS3 died so I am down to give this a shot for $10


I am gonna go ahead and give you mad props for saying something positive on the A'Zon All Day Lightning Deals thread; I happen to agree with you and was honestly SHOCKED that they had Edge of Time :360: and :ps3: @ $9.99, like really SHOCKED, to the point of saying, "No way!" when I saw it pop up. I agree with ya, "Great start"...:applause:

This game is easily worth the 9.99 but it's just not that great. Shattered Dimensions is the better game, Edge of time pales in comparison.

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

In for the $10, I really liked Shattered Dimensions. I've bought much worse games for $10 or less, so I'm not going to get too worried (*cough*Fracture*cough*)

Many years of CAG have taught me this isn't true. Almost every game gets cheap eventually, but that doesn't mean they're worth playing. Your time has to count for SOMETHING - if nothing else, it's time you could be spending playing a better game. Most ppl here have nasty backlogs as it is (myself included).


great point....
I am being very selective this year with my backlog.. even at $9.99 it's just not worth it... I still have 4 AAA titles in my backlog and this would have sat around for a few more months.. and my backlog will be growing with NCAA, Madden, Spec Ops, etc...

Think I'll pass after reading the reviews. My son was interested in this game, but he also thinks anything that isn't open-world isn't worth playing. I'm pretty sure he'd be disappointed. Think I'll just wait for a deal on Shattered Dimensions.

LOL...cant beleive people actually thought this was going to be todays Amazing Spider-Man. Glad it was EoT. I had to get this at $15 and with over $120 in gift card balance that wasnt getting used, it was a no brainer. Too bad it doesnt seem as if Amazin sells $20 PSN cards anymore as I was going to use that to get Free Shipping but all I saw was third party vendors which had like $8 for shipping on those

I loved Shattered Dimensions, but didn't really care for Edge of Time.

Still a good deal for 10 bucks, though.

$10 isn't bad for Edge of Time. Just keep in mind that its a Spider-man set exclusively in one building between two points in time and there are no free roaming areas. If you think that's worth it then by all means. But it really is one of those games that just doesn't do Spider-man justice, especially if you liked shattered dimensions and Spider-man 3 the game.

I hope "Remember: this item is essential for your PS Vita." is Uncharted or something. I know it's a longshot but it's kind of a slap in the face to do a memory card since if you own a Vita you already have one and they're not exactly the size to be carrying around multiples.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

Got one of the last ones, but I have a strange amazon payment question. I've got a couple credit cards tied to my account, and some amazon credit additionally.

When I buy anything with amazon coupons or lightning deals like this, I can ONLY select the amazon credit to pay for it to get the deal. Edge of time was 9.99 with my credit , showing a discount. If I chose to pay with a card, it jumped back up past 20 bucks. Anyone else experience this?

The goldbox discount is lumped with your credit into promotional credit. Its always been like this. Best thing to do is place a pre-order that uses your credit and then cancel when you are done shopping with your card

Joined the waitlist and called my son to make sure he didn't want it. Told him there was no freeroam and the game takes place completely indoors. He said no. But at least I was willing to buy it for him. It's hard for me to remember that just because I think a game will suck doesn't mean my kid won't enjoy it. He's learned to check critic and user reviews after buying a couple stinkers, though.

Wow! I just checked my order detail and I didnt get charged shipping! I qualified for Suepr Saver Discount bc the item's original price was $27.xx before the lightning price savings. Thought for sure it being $10 would add on the $5 shipping charge. Makes this deal even sweeter

I got it when it was 99% claimed! Didnt think it would get it. I was looking for something else to make my order $25 but couldnt find so just went and placed the order and accepted shipping costs


I had the Super Saver Shipping option on mine...not sure why others didn't. Put it in the cart, price was $27.xx and then it applied the promotional discount to bring it to $9.99. FSSS kicked in with the original price without the discount. Still had to pay damned NYS sales tax, but that's less than it would've been for standard shipping so I won't complain.

So for this to become $9.99 you have to use the gift card balance Amazon gives you? I went to change my payment option and I did not know where I got the gift card balance of $10.92, so I took it off and when I got back to my cart the game was $20.91. I switched it back and used the balance to get it to $9.99

I don't remember Amazon doing this the last time I bought a gold box deal. Is it something new?

I really enjoyed it, just finished the story last night. This isn't the first time it was $40 best buy just had it at this price. But I can't see this being below $40 for a while.

Nah, this has been Amazon's method of choice for some time. I think the earliest I remember seeing it was on an Assassin's Creed II Gold Box deal a few years ago. Item goes into your cart at regular price, then Amazon adds a gift card/promotional discount credit that is automatically applied during payment selection. However, there is a checkbox there. I'm not sure why they would do that instead of instantly applying the savings. But yeah, it's SOP for Amazon.

Hmm...hoping one of the two Vita deals is something I want. Would second the previous Uncharted suggestion, even though I highly doubt it. Probably a 16GB memory card discount.

The plus side is FSSS is applied to pre-discount price which certainly helps non-prime users

Oh I had the option and I selected it but didn't think it would go through bc I don't have Prime and didn't think it would use the original price to apply it to
