I know this game is usually pretty cheap as is, but I don't think I've seen it this low for a new copy. For those of us who jumped on the 360 wagon late, pretty good deal for what I understand is a pretty good game.

Edit: if it matters to anyone, it looks like an "all sales final" situation...

It only works with Paypal btw. I'm thinking about getting it but I'd like some opinions about it.

It's a good game, I already own it or I'd probably jump on this.

I'm not entirely sure that's the case... I believe the $5 instant rebate is regardless of payment.. but they do also have it tagged as $5 off through Paypal.

I did happen to pay through PP but my receipt shows the Paypal promo listed with a $0 value(cannot combine with other offers)

If anyone tries with another payment method, let us know one way or the other

If you're looking for the fun-factor that GTA4 lacked, you'll find it in Crackdown.

That's the best description I've heard of both games. You're exactly right.

Well worth it under $15.

It was worth the $60 I paid at launch and I never even downloaded the Halo 3 beta. Pick it up!

Only bad thing is if you are just getting this now, you missed the sale on the DLC that is supposed to be pretty good. I've got the DLC, and the game, now I just have to play it again ;)

What's a "DLC"?

Ill speak up for the games quality and also say that the description of this has the fun GTA lacks is pretty fair. My only big complaint with that game was that it was far too short and just when the game ended would have been the perfect time to have tossed a second half of a game at you! Otherwise its a lot like GTA with you running around a big city stealing cars and killing people, only this time the people you are supposed to kill are criminals and if you kill others like usual the cops and eventually special forces come after your ass. The thing that really sets the game apart though and what makes it so fun was that your character is genetically jacked thanks to scientific research. You start off the game stronger then your average person able to leap higher and lift more, but as time goes on you get stronger and stronger. Eventually you are lifting up cars and jumping a good like 30/40 feet. I had so much fun just freaking running around jumping from building to building and jumping like 40 feet up into the air and shooting a rocket down at the enemies.

At this price I definitely recommend grabbing it. Cant wait for Crackdown 2(not annoucned but several MS execs have said they want to make another).

In for one, thanks OP. I've heard good things about this game as well about its fun factor.

I really loved this game when it first came out. I wanted to get the DLC but it was priced too high for me. When I saw it (the DLC) go on sale last week I bought it right away. I put the game in and just wasn't feeling it at all. Something about putting it in after so long just didn't get me back. I don't know what it lost, but it didn't hold up for me. First timers though, it's well worth the cheap price.

Be sure to download the free DLC if you bite on this too. There's also a for-pay DLC, but after all this time its still full price. I snagged it when it was on sale but I've yet to play again since buying it.

I considered it, but Prototype isn't that far away...
good deal tho
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Has anyone not paid via PayPal yet and still gotten the rebate?
