Bought it back when it was $20 and it was worth every penny.

Super Stardust portable is much better for the same price... I just don't have time to play all these games Or I'd pick this up too. Definitely a good game however.

No. Rock Band Track Pack Vol.2 for Xbox 360. Already used the code to download the songs. Got $10.80 with edge and coupon.

Didn't get on the soul bubbles deal. I would have just kept soul bubbles. Looks pretty fun. :D

The music on the DS version is a lot better than the PSP one. Check these out:

EDIT - Changed the PSP video to the demo one, which is the actual first stage. Music might not be exactly what I think it is.

PSP Version of Stage 1 (Invade You -Original-):

DS Version of Stage 1 (Invade You -Remix-):

Both songs appear on the Space Invaders Extreme Audio Cluster soundtrack for the game, but I prefer the DS tracks.

Paddle controller support is what really sold me for the DS version. Notice the twitchy-ness of the guy playing on the DS? Even without the paddle, you can do that. But with the paddle...that's cake. You can get it from NCSX. Pricey, but well worth it for this game.

Since this game came out, I've probably sunk 150 hours into it. I just...don't stop playing it. And the soundtrack? Some days I have it on repeat. I'm returning half the gifts I bought and replacing them with the DS one. Thanks to everyone that posted!

Better PSP video for comparison

I'm not seeing the DS version on gamestop.com or ebgames.com - I'm guessing it's sold now now...

It does appear to be sold out online, but you can still check availability at local stores. Be sure to call first to double-check before heading out the door though.

Went in looking for this tody after work. Local GS tried to pull the ol' "this gutted copy is still new" trick but I told him forget it. Been wanting this for a while but I refuse to get a gutted copy and pay as new, I know its not a big difference in price but its the principalities! I'll just wait till i find a new sealed copy at a random GS.

Yup, I did this with the PSP version; and I hear the DS version has true online play... ...perhaps another pickup?

Kage 2 is a great game for $10. I paid $20 and felt it was worth it.

Not the most complex thing ever, but simple ninja fun.

I want the Crysis CE for $20, but dammit, I don't want to pay for shipping or find filler. Prime has ruined me.

Exit DS got some bad reviews. Worth it at this price?

Awesome game but I would pass on the DS version. The reviews don't lie, the controls are cumbersome. If you have a PSP or a 360, I would get it there

Now, see, I reviewed it (for Play), and what I found was that while the standard controls did feel rather hard to get used to, going stylus control actually worked far better than I had expected. Stylus control allows you to "buffer" certain things that otherwise are all single commands. (Such as walk up to an item, climb up on it, then climb down the other side. If I remember correctly, simply by touching on the proper place Mr. Esc would do all of that automatically.) Still had some issues with the game, but really, I don't think the control "problem" was nearly as bad as many have said.

Also, I'd put in another recommendation for Kage 2, at least if you're into old school action games (or grew up during the era of stuff like Ninja Gaiden on NES or Ninja Spirit on T16).

Sweet, seems some store around my area have the DS version in stock! Defently hope they still have it friday. Which I am sure they will. If it was one of the store that still had Digital Devil Saga collectors edition BEFORE the whole reprint thing 2 years after the game came out (and was selling at 150 in ebay) they are bound to have it in stock xP (that place is a gold mind for rare games)
