Hey, first thread here.

Searched, but could have very easily overlooked if this has already been posted. If so, Fuck me.

LINK

I saw people posting about used ZombiU for $7.99 at Best Buy, but if you're someone who prefers to buy New/Sealed like me, then this is a pretty good deal to get it basically the same price after GCU [just signed up when I bought my MK8 bundle the other day]. I chose free in-store pickup and swung by on my way home from work, got it for $8.41 after GCU and tax.

Not a bad day after getting :wiiu: Rayman Legends @ Target for $6!

Anyway, hope this helps someone out who might be on the fence with Amazon's pretty cheap price like I was. Sorry if this is repeat/useless thread and please delete it if need be.

Peace

Thanks; I didn't want to pay for the shipping on a used copy, so this is even better.

Glad I didn't buy it used a few days ago. Don't even have a Wii U yet but this game seemed interesting. Thanks OP!

For $49.99 hell no. For $7.99 why the Fuck not? I bought this at Blockbuster during the stores' last day. I've been meaning to check it out.

I dumped my copy a while back, and have been waiting for a good price to rebuy. $8.xx hits that sweet spot. Thanks OP!

how is the game? Cause I noticed it on sale this morning but been trying to decide all day to get it or not and check reviews but seem like it 50/50 on reviews but I think most the bad reviews were probably before they fixed the bugs when the game first came out maybe?

I bought this when I picked up a wii u last year. It's not a bad game, but it's not great either. I guess for $8 or $10, it's worth it to try if you haven't yet.

Yeah, browsing deals on CAG had me collecting :wiiu: games before i even had the console, but now that I have one my library jsut keeps getting bigger! Glad I could help you guys out!

Yeah, I had been watching that price the past week or so and something in my gut was telling me to wait. I'm glad I did since sub-10 was my biting point. No worries though, not everything is for everyone

I haven't played much past the introduction, since I didn't have much time to sit down with it tonight, but it seems like a pretty solid survival horror title if that's your jam. Ammo and suppleis are few and far between so you have to play smart or you will get punished for trying to run and gun or play it like the more action-oriented shooters on the market. It's certainly creepy as hell and you will get your spooks and thrills. I definitely wouldn't pay more than $15 or 20 for this game at the most, but I agree with krashhole; at this price point I feel extremely comfortable with my purchase. I look forward to playing it with my good friend who likes survival horror and zombies later this summer.

Abysmal.  It's an unfinished, buggy mess that feels like an early beta build was slapped onto a disc.  I don't know what you mean about them "fixing the bugs" because I played the game a month or so after release and there was no patch fixing them.... and to my knowledge that was after Ubisoft formally dropped support for this game.  Unless they went back on what they said?  Either way, AFAIK all the bugs are still there.  At the very least, I know it's still possible to run out of C4 (an essential story item required to advance) if you explore too much.  To this day, I can't think of another major console release with such a shitty design that it is possible to run out of a story-centric item and just be stuck.....

 

The game is just a notch above Aliens CM or DNF.  It's buggy, unfinished, and with graphics that look like they'd be home on the Wii.  As a proof of concept for what the WiiU could potentially do with horror one day, it does work.  There are some good ideas here.  Just don't expect anything resembling a decent game.  I honestly believe a lot of reviewers were far too kind with the game simply because it's not cool to diss any "major" Nintendo exclusive and because, aside from an overpriced 2D platformer and minigame compilation it was the only new thing to play..... but at least it's still better than TANK!

The game rings up at $9.99 in-store also.  Shelf tag still said $29.99 but it was $9.99 at checkout.
