Is this a good deal? Not in the context of "is it fun" but rather how much cheaper is it than most other places?

I platinumed this game a few weeks ago.

Overall, I felt it was very overrated, but a good game. The controls, especially aiming, were frustrating and almost completely ruined it for me at first. Once I got past that (second playthrough) I started to enjoy it a lot more. Then, the last evil boss glitched on me during the hard playthrough and I tried for an hour (without dying) to kill it with no luck. If it wasnt for online, telling me it was glitched what the work around is, I would still be shooting at it. (be aware of this if you're playing on the hardest mode!)

Dialog is good. There are a few good lines in the game, but they are all basically dick jokes. The graphics seemed a little grainy to me, but that is a minor complaint. Music was really good, but that end game "rap" gave me the douche chills. I did really enjoy the end credit song.

Hotspur is a likeable character, and I hope they fix the control issues for the sequel.

I can't say that I had any problems with the controls. It controls pretty much like RE4, except you can move & aim at the same time. The biggest drawback is you can't skip the numerous cutscenes in the game. Other than that there's not a whole lot to complain about. I really hope this game gets a sequel.

From what I've read the PS3 version is supposed to be better (can't personally confirm this as it's still in the backlog).

That is correct, either DF or LoT already did a comparison for this.

I loved this game and platinumed it as well. Had no problems on the hard playthrough which I did first. Unlike a lot of games if you play through on hard first it doesn't give you the trophies for finishing on the easier levels you have to play through on each to get each trophy... the graphics ..dialogue..and characters were awesome. $20 bucks is a steal

$10 is a steal, $20 is a deal.

I still want this, but my backlog is killing me. I'll keep it on my wishlist.

I really enjoyed this game. Well worth it at $20 or less.

Must. Not. Add. To. Backlog.

I caved and picked up Splatterhouse for 10 bucks already, I can't add anymore. Vanquish is probably the only game right now I would pick up if I saw it on sale for 10 bucks because I would really like to play that.

Shadows of The Damned is definitely something I will check out in the future, it'll be even cheaper by the time I get around to it.

Get this... one of the few games I remember laughing so hard I cried a little. For those of you who have played it... all the "storybook" moments, more so when Garcia is the voice.

SOTD is one of those games that the story, ambiance, whole just theme of the game is so great that the little quirks with gameplay and such was looked passed by me. It's a funny, fantastic experience that has those wtf moments of brilliance. I loved it.
