Price is dropping fast on this one, might go lower, but I think I'm going to bite at this point. From what I've read it's a reasonably good game and this seems to be a good enough price to make it worthwhile.

Edit: Updating prices in the title. 360 has gotten better, PS3 deal is functionally dead, but who knows how long that will last, price has been absurdly volatile.

I got this for $23 on Black Friday, right after it came out. It's not terrible, but a lot of the puzzles are more frustrating than fun and the last dungeon is a real pain unless you're fully leveled up.

There are just a lot more and far better games out there for the same price or even cheaper.

Been waiting on the PS3 version to hit $10, I don't expect it to be worth much more then that.

Literally playing this right now. I was on the fence after the demo but got it form GS for $15 (had a $10 coupon due to the PowerUp program). It was slow to get into, but I am really enjoying it now. It reminds me of ICO meets Zelda. For me none of the puzzles were frustrating, the more difficult puzzles I found to be fun due to making me think about how to solve it. Needing to look around the entire area to figure out what to do. There was only one time I needed to use a guide and it was just to find out where to go next.

If you're an ICO fan and can't wait for TLG I suggest picking this up to hold you over.

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 bought it for $40 and got my money's worth. Great deal at this price, IMO. Nothing ground breaking but its pretty competent overall.

Tempted. Really tempted.

I just didn't like the demo, though. I know if I order this, it'll sit on my shelf for weeks or months, then I'll finally pop it in for like twenty minutes and be underwhelmed. Then I'll be done with it forever.

Nice deal on the Xbox 360 but I just got Two Worlds 2 and Portal 2 arriving tomorrow
Also have Gears 3 beta and Might & Magic on XBLA to play so I'm currently overbooked :D

Taking offers on my PS4 20th Anniversary Ed.

I bit. I don't know why, but I did.

I feel the same way. I have amazon credit and have always been interested in this game. I just got Fallout New Vegas, Civilization Revolution and Rock Band 3, but have been underwhelmed by all of them. I think I need something fresh, and this just might be it, even though it might not be a blockbuster title. Definitely something I might order soon.

Holy crap!? The PS3 version dropped below $14. I'm tempted, but I'm wondering whether it really will drop even further.

Just finished/platinumed this. It isn't a hard Platinum/1000 to get, but it is very enjoyable.

The demo didn't do a good job of showing what this game has to offer. I mentioned this before, but I highly recommend it to people who are a fan of ICO and Zelda. It has a more ICO feel, but the combat is much more prevalent and there are power ups to find and levels to gain for both you and the Majin.

Down to 11.64 for Xbox. It's like what happened with Lunar PSP around Thanksgiving....I have my finger poised to buy, but it goes a little lower each day. Eventually it will rubber band snap back up in price. I think I have to order this in the morning.

The CAG in me says "Wait until $10 or lower" and the backlog says "Why are you even considering this?"

I played the demo and did enjoy it, though.
