haha, wow, really? never read or even saw the IGN review..figured it'd be fun for my kid, but yeah, all these "you taking photos IS the game!" games are always poised to be great, but just not that fun..

Wasn't this one of the "look at what the PS3 can do" games heavily talked about before the release of the PS3? Regardless of the luke-warm reviews this will probably be one of my first purchases when I buy a PS3.

To be entirely fair, IGN gave Godhand a score of around 3, too. I don't trust that site at all.

yeah don't take the number seriously on the IGN review. read it since the guy seems to have a hard time understanding this game has no guns.

glad to see this drop. I might get it finally then.

They should drop it even lower than $30 for this game though...

from what i read from other places it isn't too bad theres just some control issues on some sections but other than that it isn't bad for what it is a game where you take photos of animals around africa.

euphoria.

I'd get it if I could get it down to 20 in store. There just aren't any 25% coupons showing up anymore.

Maybe it's a bit unfair to lose all faith in an entire site because one of its reviewers didn't like a particular niche title.

That being said, Godhand is an amazing game, though. ;)

come on, come on..is it really now? Wasn't this, dare I say it, shovelware for the PS2 and could have been had at most Best Buys in a value bin for $9.99 or less? thats where I remember seeing it..this site sold me on Earth Defense 2XXX or whatever, and that was shear repetitiveness..eh, what am I saying, guess I'll track down Godhand now! :lol:

I noticed this yesterday, and have been hoping it would show up online so I could get a used copy with the coupon. I am willing to give this game a shot for less than $20. Seems like a love it or hate it title, but seems like it could be fun. Plus I think my little girl will like this one.

If you love brawlers or action games with a good combat system with a bit of humor thrown in, you'll love god hand. I'd of paid the full standard $50 MSRP for that game even if it weren't released as a $30 budget title.

I would like to try this game for that price, but the used price says online only, yet it isnt available online.

Also, side note, I happened to see this...GS is trying to sell Prototype for $59.99 again! With Bonus Item! HAHAHA http://www.gamestop....roduct_ID=66431

LOL I guess it's not very popular in LA, because every single store has it in stock, new and used. Even with its alleged "rarity" I'm betting that since it's so unpopular, it'll be sub $20 new soon enough, maybe even sub $10...

SPLASH!

kinda hard to see it drop down $10. I'll be happy with $20-ish.

I always wanted to try this one but since there is no demo that means it sucks. Maybe when this is $10 new I give it a shot.

I was finally able to get it shipped from my GameQ, bu the wait was not worth it.

The game is horrible IMO, sent it back next day.

All you do is take pictures, if you get "hit" by an animal you lose all you photos and have to start back at camp...you drive around a lot...but you can't control the driving.

You control the driving just didn't play long enough. You also get to climb trees for better shots. Unlock more cameras. The game isn't for everyone thats for sure.

How similar is this to Pokemon Snap? Because I LOVE Pokemon Snap.

Well lets put it this way you go around and take pictures. You are driven around for the first couple of "missions" and you upload pictures via e-mail for missions. I don't remember much about pokemon snap but its pretty much like that.

This is a GREAT game people. BUT this is not an *action* game.

This is NOT Cabela's.
This is NOT Call of Duty.

Do you enjoy animals?
Do like to watch Animal Planet or Discovery Channel?
Do you read National Geographic? (they helped and contributed pictures and movies to the game)
Do you like games like Endless Ocean? (It's like Endless Ocean on "land")

If you said yes to the above, then definitely look into this. I bought it before the price drop, and do not regret it. :)
