My friend really wanted this and paid full retail when it first came out. I think that was just a couple months ago. This is either a really good deal, or more likely, the game didn't sell well at all. I don't think I'll be telling my friend about this...

Seems like SEGA games always drop fast in price.

Maybe Amazon is matching Gamestop/EB Games price.

That price is about right, it's worth playing through for some mindless hack and slash. Although it caused my 360 to RROD just last week (rather just was the unfortunate game to be in the system at the time). Ack

Still leaning on the fence on this one. I do love mindless hack and slash games, and the ability to dismember enemies is always enticing. Just might have to bite.

It's a decent game but very repetitive.

Note that there are stealth elements to the game, so it isn't completely mindless. I hated them at first, but once I realized what they were doing I liked the added variety. There are also some strategy elements as well.

In the end I loved the game, but I wouldn't blindly recommend it to anyone.

If you like hack and slash it's a fun game. I enjoyed it.

I didn't know whether to make a new post or not (also couldn't find it in elsewhere), but I just noticed that this has dropped to $19.99 for the 360. Forgive me if this is up somewhere else and I didn't notice it.

you can get this used at gamestop for $15.50 (i think depends on your tax) after 10% coupon and edge card.

Decent Game. I had a lot of fun playing through it. It is a bit repetitive and the stealth is more about luck than strategy but its worth a play through and at $20 bucks its well worth it.

good game for achievements as well

Yeah as I mentioned here it's listed on their website as a "Temporary Price Reduction", not sure if it is actually but that's how it's listed. So it might be better for some to pick this up in store as this really isn't $19.99 shipped, you need to add filler and then wait for shipping.

i woulda bit on this one but i just got it from gamefly not too long ago and beat it. wasnt as bad as i'd thought it'd be reminded me of a dumbed down version of god of war. now i gotta finished up conan so i can get rid of that also might be trading that and army of two in for something soon.
