One of my favorite RPGs this gen. Loved the weapon customization and battle system.

Eligible for prime, sold by third party, great game!

One of my favorites as well. I'm all about deals but I can honestly say this was 60 bucks I don't regret. Very excellent and often underrated title.

Its been under 20$ quite a few times (think I bought it last year for that), not a bad game, definitely not great either.

The combat is unique and pretty cool, however it gets stale alot quicker than most rpgs combat.

This is a game with a ton of problems, why can't people just be fucking honest for once about JRPGs? They aren't all diamonds in the rough.

If you love it, that's wonderful. On a site with people who never touch their backlogs, however, it feels wrong to post a deal with such shallow recommendations.

$21? Christ...

How are they not being honest when they are just stating an opinion. People can love bad games and people can hate good game. Just cause a game isn't in your $10 price range doesn't mean it's a deal.

Personally I enjoyed the game a lot. I loved the unique combat system and customization but story is basically non-existent. There is also a learning curve into the game so it's definitely not for everyone (even rpg lovers) as if you don't get the combat, you will not like the game at all.

Now on to the deal, it alright. Like DCM said it has been under $20 before. Not on amazon (used but not new) but on Newegg for 15.99.

It's extremely unique. That alone earns it a lot of credit. Those that actually stick with it long enough to fully understand the battle system are rewarded with an extremely... rewarding (yes I used it twice) experience. You're right, it isn't a diamond in the rough. It's just a diamond.

Who pissed in your cereal this morning? Damn, not sure why u feel the need to get that "serious" with someone posting about a game.
"It feels wrong to post a deal with such shallow recommendations"? seriously? haha do we need to have in-depth reviews for every $5 DOTD game from bestbuy?

With that said, $21 isn't a great price though. :lol:

Go play your shiny and smooth Final Fantasy 13 and revel in its complexity and amazing structure...meanwhile the rest of us will be appreciating the unappreciated and underrated titles.

We aren't in denial...you give me 5 reasons why it's a horrible game and I'll give you 5 why it's amazing. If you don't like the damn game and can't enjoy it for being different and complex just go elsewhere.

Your Fucking right! this game is hard as hell and doesn't hold your hands, completely different from ANY RPG I've ever played, and it doesn't have a annoying sidekick character!

Oh wait that's what I liked about the game.....

Uh...well Haters Gonna Hate!

This is one of those games that people think is hard because they don't do the tutorials. Also, once you figure out gun customization this game becomes a breeze. Pretty fun game.

They're not random, but by level. Not to say that difficulty doesn't spike though.:lol:

On the brightside, there's an arena that makes the grinding easier.

Game is fun as hell though. $20 isn't a deal because it's been cheaper, but well worth it. I must've gotten at least 150 hours on it.

This article sums up everything about RoF:

http://kotaku.com/59...rst-impressions

Worst first impression of any game I've ever played. Tri-Ace games in general have this problem. You can't create a game, with possibly the most complex battle/weapon system I've ever personally seen, and just expect people to understand it with no comprehensible tutorial system.

Bottom line...if you play games for fun, avoid this. If you enjoy being extremely frustrated, this game will be the best you've ever played.

It's been this price for a long time, not really a deal...

The game is good but it has its many flaws. Combat system is very unique. I got about 10 hours into it, but then stopped because I got kind of bored. I'll finish it someday.

This one is very unique. I love the gun customization and even the whole outfit/clothes stuff is cool. But, this can be a pretty challenging game at times. I play it in spurts and I think I'm about halfway through it... Can be fun, can be real frustrating!
