Free store pick up. Although it said my store was unavailable, I was still able to find 3 copies in store and price matched it. Also worked with the B1G1 50% off for 2 copies (that was yesterday, but I think it might be over now).

I got $15 in TRU credits so I wanted it into convert to BB credits. TIV @ BB $12.

I heard this game was pretty horrible, but might be good for Achievements. Unfortunately the 360 version is $19.99 however?!

yea, bad scores pretty much everywhere. I just got it to transfer my credits. I will be keeping the box as replacements for future used games :lol:

I bought my kid a Dora game for the Wii so I grabbed this as well with that "buy 1 19.99 or less, get 1 40% off" deal. Guess I paid a little more than 9.99 but oh well.

Played for a couple hours last night. Graphics are awful, but the worst thing about it is that it seems to constantly skip frames of animation while you fight. The game is extremely choppy during combat and it can be extremely hard to tell when you get hit, because there doesn't seem to be an animation for it.

Tempted to just get it despite all I hear about it. Would rather get the Captain America game, though.

looks to me that $9.98 is a clearance price so it'll stay here until it's out of stock.

I was considering buying this because I wanted to try the 3-D mode but if the graphics are this bad in 2D, I can only imagine how bad it is in 3D. Thanks for the review!

I own a 3D tv as well and tried to play it that way, too. It's nothing special, and as I said the graphics are bad so 3D doesn't do it any favors. It feels like they just tacked the 3d on as a gimmick, because the game doesn't seem to take advantage of the effects. If you want to play something that looks awesome in 3D though, I'd recommend Motorstorm Apocalypse.

Yea, If they have less than 3 copies, it won't show up. It was the same for me.

I heard the game is easy for achievements/trophies but the programming is so bad it can be a headache on the harder difficulties

Yeah, avoid this game at all costs. I picked it up because (obviously) I'm a Marvel nerd, and I despised it the entire way through. I just got my 1000/1000 this weekend -- while most of the achievements aren't bad, completing the game on Valhallan difficulty (also required for some of the collectibles) is goddamn rough. I spent around 4 hours on the final boss alone.

This is why I don't care for achievements. Why would you spend 4 hours ( just the boss alone;)) doing something you don't enjoy?!?

Imagine the conversation: did you play the new ( insert AAA title) ? Naw man but I did 1000/1000 Thor!!! Umm, good for you, I'm off to play and enjoy my good game.

Ahaha, so true. I feel like this is me all the time, just not to get trophies but just playing stupid games.

I guess for the same reason I spent all that time searching for missiles and health upgrades in the Metroid Prime series -- I've always been a completionist, even outside of games, it's just now I've got a new set of goals to go for. Why do I keep going when a game is terrible? OCD, I guess. If it's not complete, it's always nagging at the back of my mind.

I do still get to the AAA titles, but achievement whoring is a good way to kill time while waiting for a price drop.

Im like that with movies . Even if the movie is painfully bad, I have to finish it.
