Oh, nice. This is the perfect price for this game. Here's hoping my order doesn't get cancelled!

PS3 Trophy Card didn't work very well, nor do I give a shit about PS3 trophies. I assure you though, I have a PS3.

Its a really hard game a couple hours into it, but then it gets kinda boring.

As far as I hear, it's over the top and ridiculous with some flaws, but oddly addicting. In short, perfect for Xbox Live arcade style pricing (such as the 8.99 price here) as opposed to the price it launched at.

Me neither, but at 8.99, can't go wrong. Looks kind of like Lost Planet, except with co-op, which is the reason I didn't enjoy it.

Giant ants FTW.

Should be worth the $9 for that alone.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

I think Friend of Sonic nailed it. I got it for about this price from either KB Toys or eToys when it came out (a glitch they fixed by the time I posted the deal here). Definitely worth this price.

This has great offline co-op right? How's the game look? It's not horribly outdated is it? Frustrating gameplay?

Been looking to get this game at around $20. Definitely can't resist it at half that price.

The graphics are a mixed bag. It looks pretty good in general with well-done monster models and weapon effects, but it's filled with bizarre physics and mediocre to poor animation. Also, the environments are all pretty repetitive in design. The game won't win any awards for its graphics, but they get the job done.

The gameplay is old-school shooting fun. Absolutely fantastic with a second gunner. If the devs had been able to put in online play the game would've been amazing. It gets frustrating on higher difficulty levels, but that's something to be expected.

I've already used google checkout before, but I'm still thinking about picking this up for $18.99 plus tax.

Just picked this up two days ago used from GS. It was well worth it at ~$20 so $9 is a steal. It's a flawed game but incredibly addictive and loaded with fun, just leave your brain at the door.

Thanks, TC! I get this game here, bring back the used copy I bought and I have enough store credit to fully pay off Mass Effect and mostly pay off the Wii Zapper & Crossbow Training bundle. Sweet!

I love this game. Hundreds of enemies attacking at on time..... priceless. Can be difficult at times, especially if you crank up the difficulty setting. bug splattering rocket launchers FTW!

What's Google Checkout? How does that work? Is it something you have to pay a membership to for discounts shopping?

Awesome! I've been wanting this for a long time, but it's retail price is way to high.

Thanks OP!

Wondering the same thing. I don't see any mention of a fee on the site, but I'm still not sure...

Google Checkout is a new service Google provides as a checkout process for its users available at certain online retailers. There is no membership fee. All you have to do is set up your account using your GMail account and you get a $10 discount with your first purchase using their service.

How do you setup a new Google Checkout account to get the $10 bonus? I tried just signing up for it with a different e-mail address but it won't display the $10 off on the checkout screen for the game....

EDIT: Can you use the same CC # and shipping/billing address as as old account/=?

They've started cracking down on multiple GCO users. I suppose they're checking multiple CC or address entries.

Coogle check out is greyed out before I can even pay for the game. They state that this game is not accepted as a Google coupon.

In for a copy. Thanks OP.

For those who might be interested, there's still a $5 rebate at Pricegrabber.
