it would be tough for this one to be resealed, considering the inner seals for both discs. considerably more work than just running through a sealer, i wouldnt be terribly surprised if there was any resealing nonsense, but my copy was new

Mine was brand new, as were all the other games that I've ordered from them new off the web site.

The only strange one that I've bought lately was a Metal Gear ACID from the local store. I could have sworn that it was sealed in cellophane, but maybe it was re-sealed, since the insert is actually torn. I sure didn't do it.

Re: question of whether this is worth it --- if you have DOA3 and don't care much for online play, then it's def. not worth it. The online play is okay, but the game pretty much plays exactly the same as DOA3 -- and there are a few things (b/c this is DOA2) that are missing and actually make this game's controls feel primitive compared to DOA3. Now, arguably, the graphics are great and all (and yes, there are costumes), but the CG is not nearly as good and well, you know DOA has no real single player storyline...

That's exactly where mine is torn, right in the middle of the PSP logo on the front. That's just bizzare.

Mine were in one of the game cases, although I don't remember which one it was. Not real exciting once all is said and done though, since they're not even printed on good, glossy cardstock. =(

I need to get this. My friend rented the game, and I liked it. I actually almost got it when I got my Xbox during the TRU B1G1 sale last fall, but I got Mortal Kombat: Deception instead. Bad decision.

Hell, if I could get 2 copies, I could play one and trade in another for more than I paid for it, which would really help with paying for WrestleMania 21. Buying 2 copies doesn't classify as "hoarding" does it? Heh.

If you are going to trade it still sealed for $50 I would call it fraud.

I figured GameRush would give me $30 or so for it, or I could trade it with someone else. I wouldn't take it to a store it didn't come from and try to exchange it.

Recieved mine 2 days ago. The manuals had a small tear on the side but the labels were intact...what explains that? Anyways...cards I got are Lei Fang and Tina.

Definitely worth the $20!

DoA 1 Ultimate was kinda cool, it has that arcade / previous gen feel to it (like playing Virtua Fighter 2 on PC). DoA Ultimate 2 really shined. It has the interface of DoA 3, and the story mode's sequences looks cool. In the later rounds (round 5 or 6), the enemies block a lot. In fact I had about full health, but Ayane countered on my attacks, and got a 11 hit combo down on me. She had low life, but I couldn't get the last kick on her, she countered about all my leg sweeps. Reminded me of Ninja Gaiden. Anyway, the two cards I got were Tina and Lei Feng.

Just in case you are the ultimate cheap ass, they have the game used as well. After CAG15/Edge/Saver = $13.49

SOLD!

How long does this deal last, or is it permanent?
