Amazon's 4-pack was a glitch, so this is a pretty impressive price (if it's not a glitch).

My NAZI ZOMMIES review from Amazon:

"Admittedly, this game does not have the best third-person-shooter mechanics out there. You can vault over some obstacles and not others, picking up ammo by walking near it doesn't always pick everything up, the cover system is clunky and mostly useless, etc. The graphics are also very, very poorly optimized at the time of this review. I have an NVidia 680M (quite a powerful card, able to play Battlefield 3 completely maxed out at 45-60FPS), and if I set all the graphics settings on and to maximum on this game, the FPS crawls at under 20FPS. Even turning off the extra graphic features like the super-sampling (the buggiest setting on the game), ambient occlusion, etc, my game will still only run at 60FPS sometimes, while it drops down to as low as 30FPS sometimes.

So with all of those complaints, why did I still rate the game at 4 stars? Simple, it's good fun played with friends. The gameplay is simple enough, you just are trying to get from point A to point B, while fending off zombies, clearing them out, holding down your position while they "siege" you, and taking out boss enemies at the ends of levels sometimes. While most of the enemies are dumb, shambling zombies, you'll fight a lot smarter and more dangerous enemies as you go along. There is a large enough selection of weapons to make up your load-out (sniper rifle, automatic rifle/shotgun, pistol), as well as a variety of grenades and mines, to keep things fresh and let you experiment with your style as well.

Be sure to try the game out in single player too though if you want to experience the awesome "x-ray bullet cam" shots that are kind of the Sniper series trademark. Very cool, very fun.

In closing, awesome game, difficult, fun with friends, but naturally lacking in some aspects. Pick it up!
"

 

Thanks for the review of this game.

 

Has anybody ever say actually reviewed a review? ;)

Go to the comments section of any IGN review.  They do it there all the time.  It's usually not pretty... :twoguns:

Don't understand Idiots FPS issues, I can run it at max everything vsynced to 60FPS, with very few dips and I'm only running a GTX480.  My CPU is overclocked like hell though.

That is a suspiciously good deal. 70 percent off? I smell a price mistake.

 

They haven't caught it yet if it is.

Can you lock in an order if you have a blue coin balance large enough to pay for the item? Or does it automatically complete the order if you try to check out using Blue Coins?

Automatically completes if you select BC.. however you can select paypal, which makes it a pending order, then change payment method to BC later.

Oh, I didn't know you could switch payment methods. Very nice.

 

Thanks.

 

EDIT: Thanks to you too Ashes. And to Proz for pointing out the deal on Skyrim.

I bought my copy on GG UK site pretty much at launch and it activates as Tomb Raider (ROW) so take that as you will.

 

Edit: Skyrim deal not nearly as good now, it is down from 60% off to 40% off.

How funny is it that once again they've done it to Bethesda?

 

I would think it would be company policy by now to triple check every Beth sale they feature.

Yeah, and same fundamental issue.. this time double appliication of 40%.  Maybe Beth sanctions this for "marketing" so people will buy it so that they don't feel like they missed out
