If you're a metal head you should definitely pick this up. Ton of great metal tunes and references.

This game was a lot better than I expected, I'd definitely recommend it at this price

Game was pretty good until the clunky and unnecessary RTS portion started.

This game is hugely underrated. Even if you don't like metal, it's a pretty fun game...lots of variety to the gameplay. The story is nonsensical, but the gameplay is very fun. Steal at this price.

Anyone know if this deal is all week or just for today? Not sure if I'll be able to make it out to my Best Buy today.

Thanks!

Here's the PS3 version link:
...
Also, with free shipping. What's their profit from this? $1??

LOL, at the pre-owned versions at over $7

UPDATE: Looks like it's in store only, even though they explicitly say free shipping. Can't select shipping option, only in store pickup. I'd spend 4X in gas than the game cost to go the 35 miles to my nearest BB and back. Deal breaker. So close Best Buy, so close. And I was glad I passed on the game when it was $5.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

Not sure; its not showing up on the daily deal pages. Your best bet is to go ahead and order it online. I put in for a store pick up earlier this morning; I think they hold it for about a week.

It was available for shipping earlier today (at least the 360 version was). I ended up changing it to store pick up since I already have another order waiting to be picked up.

Very disappointing game-- like most people I thought it was hilarious and awesome for the first few hours, until the RTS gameplay left me totally cold. But it's definitely worth $3 just for the great music and Jack Black's performance.

Picked this up at Walmart's Black Friday a few years back. It was worth the $7 I paid for it.

And this is coming from a guy who hates Jack Black.

I have to say it was disappointing as well, and this coming from someone looking forward to it. It probably is worth picking up for a couple of bucks, but the game never came together for me.

I've actually been wanting to play this again, and would've already ordered it if I could have had it shipped. Maybe they will still have it when I go to best buy in a few days.

This game had so much potential, it's a shame that you can tell they rushed it to the market and cut around a third of what should have been in the storyline. Basically you get a dramatic build up, fighting several battles with the hair metal faction and then suddenly you're at the death metal faction, have one battle and the game is over. If the third faction had a more fleshed out campaign, this game would have been amazing.

The RTS part of the game ruined it for me. I loved everything about the game until it came time to play the main part of the game... the RTS ugh. So tempted to pick it up for this price though wow.

Had a great deal of fun with this game. I found it to be pretty funny, and I didn't think the RTS was bad either. It's a pretty big open world to explore.

Yeah this game is glitched, at least on ps3, that your save corrupts if you get over 77% completion. Unless you finish the story and then save all collectibles for a brutal collectible gaming session, plat is unattainable.

doublefine has tried to patch it but blames ea for not letting them release it...

oh yeah and don't judge this game by the demo. most deceptive demo ever!

As much as I'm thinking about switching my PS3 order to a 360 order because of this statement...I have to ask myself, am I REALLY going to try to collect everything in this game??

To me, it seems like absolute misleading garbage. Like a Motorhead CD that turns into a Celion Dion album after about four songs.

Perhaps Tim Shafer's next project could be a sequel to Day of the Tentacle. For the first hour or so it will seem like a fantastically enjoyable classic point and click adventure game, and soon after that you'll learn that it's actually a first person shooter.

I got it last year at that price and it's still sitting here in the plastic...

Was in store picking up Rhythm Heaven and ended up grabbing the last copy of this for PS3. Now I might end up returning it if the thing is glitched THAT badly <_<

PS3 version:
1.00 version has a nasty audio bug
1.01 fixed the nasty audio bug
1.02 re-introduced the nasty audio bug
1.03 patch is done and re-fixes the nasty audio bug but EA won't pay the hosting costs due to the fallout with Double Fine so it was never pushed to the servers

Now if you really want the PS3 version then simply let 1.01 apply and then back-out of 1.02. (and continue to reject it each time you boot the game)

And yeah, awesome soundtrack and Fuck EA!
