19.99 for both versions. Price not available for online purchase, B&M only. Most places are still selling this for around 39.99. In typical GS fashion after a game drops, used version is more expensive than new. lol

Just finished this game and it was far better than I had anticipated. Its worth $20 for the soundtrack alone. Very reccomended.

Looks like I am making a trip to my nearest GS during lunch :) I have been waiting for this game to drop.

Question is which version do I get? Anyone know if there are any difference between the two?

No PS3 trophies. I would have gottne the game for this price if it did.

FYI, if you want the game for even cheaper, go to Best Buy and price match this along with "buying" a pre order of Uncharted, Rathchet and Clank or some others and you will get $5 off the game and the pre order for free! See this thread for more info.

Not great, but decent. Very short game and it gets repetitive though.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I just finished this last night and it took me about 10 hours. I can see how it could be beaten faster, but probably not on the first playthough.

Might get this again. Got it awhile ago for $15 at Target, beat it and got rid of it, but wouldn't mind playing through it again.

No trophies, this and 50 Cent were the last PS3 games that came out which didn't have to have trophies to be certified for release (they were certified by Sony in Dec.)

Best to get the 360 version if you have both. Also contrary to what others have seen, I saw a used copy at my store with a fresh used price tag (the new white ones instead of yellow) for 17.99.

Still seems a little steep for such a short game, but thanks for the heads up. I might check it out.

Really enjoying it so far. Being able to go into a focus mode and choose what body parts you're going to cut off of the enemies is pretty sweet. It's repetitive but mindless fun, worth the money i think.

Ah not so bad.. I dont have to much time to sit and play so these shorter games are nice once in awhile and I can actually finish something then instead of the months it takes to comeplete 40+ hour RPG's..

I'm in the same boat man...so the shorter game and cheaper price tag is starting to sound appealing. Between the reviews and the gameplay vids it seems pretty fun.

If anyone else can post their thoughts and opinions of this game i'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks for everyone who has posted their thoughts so far!

From what I played so far it is very good. The controls seem a little odd at first but once you get the swing of the focus attacks its got a nice style it adds to the fighting. Overall look of an animated comic book if your into that and the voice acting is great (Especially Samuel L. Jackson).. Music is not your typical and to me adds to the games atmosphere well.

Not dissapointed at all with the purchase.. Was originally interested with the game when it first came out and it fell off my radar.

Well I played it for about an hour or so, I gotta say this game is pretty damn cool. My only complaint is the camera is jacked up at times, but I'm getting used to it. It has been well worth the money.
