Loved this game but the sneaking mechanics are weak as hell.

The story was endlessly entertaining. The villains all ham it up and are expertly acted and modeled.

It's not like Hitman Blood Money though.

It was a smooth ride.

hmm..might still try to get the PM and gc card at BBY and if I am turned down try to buy a used copy at GS with some PUR certs. No online pass right?

This game doesn't have an online pass. The only online mode is contracts mode where you create contracts for other players.

I wish I had bought the game when Best Buy was giving a $10 gift card with the purchase of it.

Just got back from BB and they wouldn't let me price match it because I had already purchased it and got the $20 GC. They said they could do one or the other. Or if I wanted to return the game and the $20 GC, then they would re-sell me the game for 39.99.

Yeah I might just pass for now. Not worth the $3 in gas to get denied. I still have Far Cry 3 and Dishonored so I am in no rush.

Great price but I see this dropping lower within the next couple of weeks. The PC version looks fantastic.

Worked for me and worked for a couple of my friends (in different parts of county).

Went in, picked up the game. Asked for a price match. Rep entered my RZ number, called someone over to override the price match, handed me the $20 gift card, and was in/out of the store in 5 minutes.

Shouldn't be a problem guys, give it a shot.

Is this game worth the buy and put in the backlog? If i do get this it will be a price match for the 40 and i will be printing out my 20 gift card coupon from reward zone. If i do get this game would it matter 360 or ps3??


You're going to pay $40 to put a game in your backlog?

$20 after PM and $20 GC from Best Buy? Your wallet I guess.

Same for me as well. Said they would do the price match, but only if I returned the gift card. Damn package deal!

Thanks OP!!!!!

Price matched at register, got my gift card. Great deal.

Funny thing is they didn't have Gamestop as an option in their computer when doing the price match. I also showed them the price at amazon.com and it was done without a hitch.

P.S. I did this as soon as the store opened, so probably before the price correction that everyone's mentioning.

Yeah, doesn't make sense. Game prices these days only go in one direction. Down. In a month or two, it'll be $30-35. Maybe even lower. Same reason I'm trying to hold out on Far Cry 3.

Well it is technically not on the list of things they PM I think people have been able to get them to PM software with this new Holiday Policy.

Agree with you 100%. My Backlog is huge as it is so I can wait for the price to get lower. Also I still need to buy Christmas presents for the family

I was able to price match at bby, took the girl about 30 minutes and a few phone calls to corp. I used $30 in reward zone cert to buy the game last week for $30 and got the gift card. So that's why it took so long because i only paid $32 for the game and the register was having issue price matching.

Damn, missed my opportunity! I wonder if they unintentionally lowered it early and that it will be that price next week. I'll keep my fingers crossed so I can PM at Best Buy (might not even work since I got the gift card deal).

Extreme YMMV, several of us that got the GC before this sale already tried to go back and get adjusted, and it was hit/miss (more miss).
