I am so kicking myself for buying this for $40 at amazon.
I enjoyed the game a lot, but beware of game breaking bugs, even after all patches. I ran into one.

Dammit! My local GameStops only have the PS3 version. Going to pick one up anyway tomorrow.

Bought this at $40 last year, hated the game, traded it in when it was going for $14 at BB at the time, kept the CE stuff.

But $20 ain't so bad considering that's the price for the vanilla game.

'Course there's no PS3 copies nearby. I'd love to get my hands on this, finally; I've been looking for it, but not at the price they're going for on Amazon.

I have the regular version sealed that I got for $10. Is this worth 20?

Compared to the cheap plastic statues that some CEs have, the "leather" quiver is definitely much better.

The CE originally cost $140, its a massive box with AWSOME physical extras in it, easily worth $20!!! So either trade in or sell urs, or keep the CE sealed and play the regular, but get either way. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT

Also has a ARTBOOK, extra 'leather' game case, and two fake arrows in the quiver.

^I forgot to mention, the map that unrolls from the arrows is a nice decorative piece to hang up. The artbook is meh.

Just opened one of mine, the two arrows are plastic but dont really feel cheap, they come in the quiver wrapped in a 'aged' cloth map (big map too) of middle earth tied with a bow, the leather is a nice feel, the artbook and game come inside the leather case on the front of the quiver, it has a little slide almost like a belt that you slide out before you can open the flap, game case says "collectors edition" and is sealed, artbooks same size as game case and is very nice.

Yeah I thought the same with the map, and the artbook is an artbook nothing special, but still nice.

Yeah lol, I got stuck in Mirkwood which I think is about 75% or more through the game. After the patches I tried again and it still happened so I just gave up. Ignoring the bugs that didn't let you beat certain levels, the game was a great hack/slash co-op game.

I got stuck on Mirkwood too. My wife and I were pretty pissed.
I got past through it using the piggyback method.

When they mentioned "Mirkwood" in the Hobbit, my first thought was "that fucking Mirkwood glitch!"

Ya know I heard A LOT of people complain that the game had some of these bugs but I played through it three times on Xbox and never had an issue. I just liked hitting the Y button as the Dorf... couldn't give it up. I have yet to play through it on PC but I intend to if I can get a band of merry mates.

Did anyone else get these for $19.99 at Best Buy when they were clearing them out last spring/summer? I ended up picking up one for each system.

Picked up the only copy for PS3 within a 100 mile radius, actually pretty impressed with it. For $20 you can't go wrong.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

You definitely got lucky, I am usually very forgiving on glitches and stuff, but being unable to proceed is unacceptable.

One store by me has 3 of them.

Looks tempting for the quiver + map, but I don't have a 360 -_-.

Dump the game on ebay/craigslist then? You can always COLLECT the COLLECTORS EDITION too, $20 it's easily worth it.
