I grabbed the only copy they had last time it was in stock, thought i'd share this time since I know a few of you have mentioned trying to find a copy. Only 2 copies seem to be in stock, so if you want it act fast!

Thanks. Never played a game like this so I'll try it. No edge card but used cag16 for a total of about $32 shipped.

Sounds like it's a real winner.
IGN gave it a 3.5.

The game is really fun and really worth it if you can get get it for around $30. You take pics of animals and get graded for them. Have to be careful not to get too close to disturb the animals( run away or rush you). You can upgrade you cameras and lenses once you get more money for your assignments. The graphics are really good. My only 2 complaints are the horribly long loading times and no voice acting. It is all text. The music is nice though and very majestic. Not a game for FPS online fans(you can't shoot with bullets only a camera LOL) but great for other people.

Ha, at least the reviewer was trying to get all the fun out of it he could.

Trying to run down animals and fighting them.

Sounds like the reviewer was incapable of actually reviewing this type of game to me.

This game is one of my favorites. Relaxing, entertaining, educational (gasp!), and a Platinum trophy that won't kill you in the process. Jambo!

Seriously?

He did the missions, found them boring. The character and animal animations sucked, the jobs were boring, the textures were bad, and the controls were horrible...just because he doesn't find photography interesting doesn't mean he was incapable of reviewing this type of game.

Also, WTF is up with that comment above my other one? "Not a game for FPS online fans"? Really? Not every FPS fan is a some racist 13 year old with ADD. I have both flOw and Flower and enjoy them along with MW2 and Gears2.

The "...great for other people." part just made it seem like all FPS fans are a mindless horde.

What is with PS3 fanboys posting non-deals in the Deals forum...:roll:

Metacritic average is 63... sounds like a winner... for me to poop on.

What would you recommend? I know BF:BC2 is getting a lot of love, but I'm waiting for the price to drop before testing it out.

So it's like Pokemon Snap but with real animals native to Africa instead of Pokemon...

SPLASH!

My point was that most people who only play online for games like HALO and COD MW do so because they have a have a small attention span. I found flower to be boring and the controls were horrible. I'm glad I got that game for $5. I much prefer Afrika. While not the best game out there I felt it was decent product. I guess different strokes for different folks. Also, do people play reviews or do they play games? I know reviews have very little impact on my buying habits as I know what will appeal to me better than some game reviewer who might have totally different tastes than myself.

People play games...but when a average score of 70% and less by reviewers and fellow gamers (as if reviewers lose their gaming ability when the get paid for it...). Though I was just commenting on the fact that for the average consumer, which is how I imagine most games are reviewed, this game is garbage according to reviewers and gamers...unless you really loved Pokemon Snap, but without Pokemon.(as mentioned before)

Then how do you know if you want a game if not by a reviewer of some kind? Unless it's a sequel, your throwing your money into unknown territory hoping for the best.

Well there is only 17 votes on that game from users on Metacritic. And only 3 of them are dragging that score down (one is a zero LOL) while the rest are 8 and 9. Go to Gamespot and you will see the user review score 8.2 from 89 users. Or even Amazon has over 4 stars(out of a possible five) from 9 reviewers. I would think that gamespot would be the most reliable since it has over 89 users commenting on the game. Like I said before I thought flower was very mediorcre and Afrika (with flaws: long loading time and no voice narrative at all) was a great game. We just have different tastes in games. I totally think this game is a great purchase especially around $30.
