Sorry about that.


Don't worry about it - I've done it myself ;).

wondering if i should snag this now or wait a few months to see if it hits $20 bucks. I havent been watching 3DS prices since i still havent opened my Zelda LE systems i got around Xmas =P Any chance of it dropping to $20 anytime soon? Are 3DS prices in general dropping or do they stay around MSRP for quite a while?

This game is getting trashed pretty hard in the few reviews I read. The concept and all the features going into it sound really great but reviews suggest that the execution is pretty lacking. I wasn't expecting Diablo III skill depth or anything but people complain about the equip system being cumbersome, unresponsive controls, etc. It makes the game sound pretty frustrating.

I'm going to do a little more research before deciding whether to cancel my pre-order, but just wanted to give a heads up.

Good lookin' out. Yeah, I'm also seriously reconsidering whether or not to cancel my preorder now...

I get more a "mediocre" than "bad" vibe from the reviews. With 22 reviews, HoR has a Metacritic score of 72, with a high of 90 and a low of 55. The main complaint I've seen is lack of content. The campaign is supposed to be short and there's no New Game+ or difficulty levels.

There is a demo on the eshop now if anyone wants to see if it is worth it.

Just a heads up, with this coming out tomorrow I checked on my Amazon order today that I had with my Prime 2-Day (Release Day) Shipping, and they changed the estimate from the 17th to the 20th (Friday). Not really sure why this happened, but it did. Spoke with a CSR over live chat and he changed the shipping speed to 1-day and I'm now expecting it (again) to come tomorrow. You may want to check your orders within the next 9 hours as that's the cutoff time to get your order tomorrow with 1-day.

It'll drop back down to 30 long before it hits 20. 3ds games tend to keep their value aside from the launch ones and they rarely hit 50% off in a timely fashion. If anything, I'd say this is worth a rental more than a full purchase.

Mine shipped yesterday - so I'd expect it tomorrow I guess. I ordered it when it first dropped to $29.99 on Amazon and have Prime.

Ya I ordered mine in May; glad it was isolated though. Still waiting for the 1-day to ship, but delivery estimate is still tomorrow for me.

I had an order placed from a while ago and actually just got a copy from Amazon in the mail today, problem is I'm not 100% sure I want it yet since I've been hearing a few amount of complaints about it, but I guess I have a while to think before returning/selling it.

From what I played, it was very boring. If you have a Vita, wait for the Ragnarok game. Better gameplay, graphics, and controls.

Though the latter is still a little boring.

I liked the Demo and it's not as bad as some people are making it out to be. Basically, if you like the genre, you should like the game well enough. Would benefit from dual sticks and a few minor tweaks though. On a side note, hurry up and ship mine Amazon!

Yeah, I probably would have canceled mine based on the recent buzz about it. But for one, well, I forgot ;). But also, I'm going to PAX and I could use a nice StreetPass game since I've never really gotten into that much. Maybe I can get some nice stuff for the game at least. I guess I should probably start playing Mario Kart soon too.
