What shipping courier do they use and are they reliable?

Courier? Lol. Well, old chap, in my experience they favour the USPS. Bit dodgy at times but they usually pull through in the end. Cheerio.

Lol, I needed that. I wonder of the game is worth playing. I didn't like any of the previous ones.

I'm currently playing through the game, and I can't put it down. It's quite different from the other games in the series. In the other games, you would always go back to your mansion before every mission so you can pick your personal load out. In the latest one, the missions are intertwined so you pick up weapons along the way. Lastly, the objectives can be completed in any order. So essentially you can kill your target, and continue to the next level right away.

$18.99 is a no-brainier. Don't hesitate.

I bit. Probably not going to play it for a while, but $20 was my price for this.

I didn't like the older 3 either. I picked this up awhile ago to transfer GS credit to BB credit, but I enjoyed it so much I kept it instead.
If I were you I'll at least pick it up at GS used to give it a shot.

Square enix has been kicking ass lately with sleeping dog, hitman and Tomb raider.

I played hitman 3 and never got into it. Price seems good though. On the fence....

I'm definitely aren't going to play it anytime this year with a huge backlog, so why not wait until it hit $10?

I bit it was something I wasn't super into it when I tried it a couple of months ago, but I had so many games on my backlog, now since I'm concentrating maybe ill like it more.

I cannot believe how quickly this game's price dropped. Even late November it was already 20 bucks off.
It was one of my favorite games last year. Sure, it was different than previous Hitman games, but I still enjoyed it.

Highly recommended for those that like sneaky murders with a plethora of awesome cinematics.

The bug that corrupts game saves still hasn't been fixed. Fair warning.

i think it's a great game for $20 - ain't gonna happen under $20 unless it's part of a black friday deal or clearance, and at that point good luck finding one.

I thought it was WAY too linear. There are a few standout levels but most of them had 1 clear way to beat it. Not to mention that the intuition ability was just stupid and the AI were the worst in the series. That's not even including the game ending bug that will eventually be fixed. If you like sneaky murder games pick up the older ones. After my rental I wouldn't pick this up for any price.

I'm assuming its region 1 because the features list on Groupon says "Made in USA"

Good price, but I still have the whole Hitman HD collection to play through. I can wait for this to hit $10ish.

Keep the game deals coming Groupon. This is the first I've wanted, so hopefully that's the first of many.

Thanks OP, grabbed one

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Not only does Groupon ship using UPS Mail Innovations (UPS picked up and dropped off at a Postal Service sorting facility of their leisure) so it already takes forever to be delivered and the tracking is rarely updated, but when I bought Wheel of Fortune from their first game offer back in November/December, it took them nearly two weeks to start shipping; BE PREPARED TO WAIT.

my god imo the stealth mechanics for this game were soooooo broken ! desguises ? pft please even from 1000 miles away everyone was alerted by you dispite looking like everyone else !!!! i would end up having to use up that meter thing (forgot what its called) just to slip past guards but that would run out quickly and then boom, another fire fight. this game just fustrated me to no end. this is a good price for those who want it though and i hope others enjoyed it much more than i did.

I've seen them ship FedEx and DHL Global Mail. I suspect they use whatever carrier costs them less at the time.

I just saw this on Groupon and figured to pay CAG a visit since I knew someone would have posted it!

I'm still on the fence here though. I've heard good things about the game that makes me want it, especially the bonuses for replaying the level a certain way which is one of my favorite things in a game.

However, #1 Im a little broke right now thanks to a suprise $2,400 bill
#2 Too many good games coming out this year I want, which I'll wait for THOSE games to drop in price (mainly because of #1)
#3 My backlog is around 50 games deep and includes games like Dead Space 1&2, Mass Effect 2&3, Witcher 2, etc.
