I bought this for $35 when all the proceeds were going to Japanese tsunami relief. Haven't played it yet and never pay full price but in this case I don't regret it at all, obviously.

Buy it.

This. It's very story heavy but it is hands down my favorite DS game and one of my favorites of all time for any system.

If you just got a 3DS and dont have a DS for whatever reason it's also a great game to tide you over until something good releases. What's the best game for 3DS? 999.

I cannot recommend this game enough. The puzzles were a perfect balance between complex, but not exhaustingly difficult. Love love love this game and so does every person I've recommended it to.

It's pretty slow in the beginning, but picks up after about 2 hours or so. Like a good book, it's hard to put down after that point.

I remember taking this photo a while ago and thought it was pretty funny. For those who played the game anyway.

I remember when everyone was saying that was going to be rare and expensive a few months after release. Oh well, I'll grab it when the next b2g1 sale hits.

I played it for about an hour. Music is really cool, and the story is interesting, I just have a hard time getting into adventure games.

I picked this up because of all of the hype around it, but after an hour I turned it off and haven't played it since. The characters were just too stupid. I couldn't take any of them seriously. And since the whole first hour was pretty much dialog, it didn't show anything at all that would make me want to sit through the rest.

If you don't buy this I will personally fly to your home (with superpowers, not a plane) and poo in your fishtank.

The initial run sold out so there was at least one reprint of the game.

Is there any issue with buying it used? Is it easy to delete anything that's been unlocked or save games or whatever?

If you can get past the first 2 hours of slow gaming, it's a really enjoyable game. I loved all the characters and the story. I bought mine used during the summer sale and haven't had a problem. There's only 1 save slot, so just delete that game before you start.

Almost nothing ends up being rare and expensive anymore. I think there is a lot more online discussion about games that are good that maybe didn't get much marketing and as a result there are a lot less "hidden gems" these days. I can't think of many current gen games (outside of collector's editions) that actually became rare and expensive.

The pre-order bonus 999 watch is actually rare/expensive. It's worth about 4x more than the game lol. Most collector's editions don't end up being worth much either.

I highly recommend this game if you enjoyed games like Hotel Dusk and other point/click adventures. I just finished this game a couple of days ago with the bad ending and have to say this game is so worth it, especially at this new price.

Infinite Space for the DS is rare, came out around the same time.

Aww man, I didn't even realize there was such a thing. Now I want one.

Be sure you get all the endings, including the best - which you can only get once you've seen all the others... which amazingly actually makes sense in the context of the story.

Like everybody else has said, incredible game, great price, just buy it.

I'm willing to pay $20 new but not $20 Gamestop new. If Amazon is willing to pricematch, I'll pay the full $20. Otherwise, I may have to go used.

I remember trying to find this game awhile back but it was sold out everywhere. There were a few copies from 3rd party sellers that were marked way up. I had no clue they reprinted it. I'll have to pick this up.

I wonder if every gamestop has copies? or is it hit and miss?

Anyone who owns a DS should buy this game at $20. The characters are fantastic, the puzzles are genuine, the story is engrossing, and all the different endings kept me playing through finals week when I should have been studying. Dropping letter grades was never more worth it.
