This was in my cart for a while and just noticed the price dropped to this. I remember it was around this price a few months ago but I missed out. Ships and sold by Amazon.

Excellent deal. I really enjoyed this game, but I wish I would have waited until it was $5. Never expected 360 games to go below $10 on Amazon... until it happened last fall.

Picked up a copy. Hard to pass up for that price. Thanks, OP.

Is it bad that I'm still holding out for under $5 on this? Looks like they still have over 1000 copies in the warehouse, and I can't forget when this was $4.80ish earlier in the year (mostly because I kept waiting on the $12 Dragon Quest V to drop to $10 back then too....sigh). Anyone who has this game want to convince me whether it's worth adding to the backlog? I've always heard wildly different opinions on it.

Also, several other games that have been sitting in my cart dropped in price as well (Fate/Extra LE being the only one I remember at this point). Maybe Amazon's gonna have an unadvertised Labor Day clearance sale?

It's not incredibly original. As you've probably heard, there are some similarities to Ico and Zelda. If you're feeling nostalgic for games from the last two console eras, it's worth purchasing. It's not as pretty as many current gen games and the voice acting could be better, but it's got a great soundtrack and I enjoyed the puzzles utilizing the Majin.

Picked this up for $6.17 earlier this year, and it was a fun little game to play. I'd definitely recommend it.

I really shouldn't be buying this especially since I'm saving up money for my trips, a new phone and upcoming Cowboom sales but this has been on my list of games to buy and at $5, It's worth it. Hoping that its a good little game to play like the demo was.

I got this game about a year ago for under $10. Can't remember where. To me it was worth it so this seem like a pretty good price for a decent game.

Its a steal at this price. One of the better, more original games I played last year.

Was going to buy this then saw that my state now charges tax on Amazon, that $.33 really just made a difference and the deal didn't seem so good anymore.

Thx OP. I passed on this earlier when it was this price and heavily regretted it. You have redeemed me!

In for one. This finally pushed me to get the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection too in order to get FSSS. Thanks OP

I'm waiting to see if the PS3 version will drop that much, lowest I've seen it is $15.

Good find. This game tends to do this every now and again. It just gradually decreases. Last time I think it got down to like the high $3's before jumping back up. I'm gonna bite this time.

LOL that's pretty much why I haven't pulled the trigger yet. $4.95 is the lowest this has gone for the new price, so I'm holding out for that. :)

Thanks for the heads-up, OP.

FYI, if you get it with Prime and don't enjoy it, you might have enough time to flip it to Best Buy during the 100% trade-in and get yourself $10 credit.

If anyone is still interested, it just dropped 3 more cents to $5.43, lol.

But my copy did already ship out yesterday.

I wish the PS3 version of this game would drop, even though I already have it.

I think the lowest I've ever seen the PS3 version was $15. 360 owners get all the deals.

this is the only game i have ever stopped playing due to voice acting. The creature plays like some dumb oaf, even to the extent he falls down and says "OOOOUUUUUCCCHHHHHH" every three minutes. I rage quit after the 100th time he did that. I didn't sign up to be the monster's caretaker.
