Been wanting Shadows of the Damned for awhile, but I just can't bring myself to buy it when I should be clearing out my backlog.

It's a great game and the length is okay.

I have zero interest in the multiplayer, and from what I hear the single player campaign is your typical 7-ish hours long. .


Yes, the Syndicate single player is short and generic as all hell. I'm surprised to see people chiming in to say this game is worth $30. If you want 4 player coop repetitive MP just get Mass Effect 3, which seems like it's $30 constantly now, and has a LOT more people playing.

Completely missed that these are MSRP drops not sales, man alot of these games didn't even sell 300,00 copies. In for syndicate since store stock is slim but will keep a lookout for other deals/sales to pm.

Grand Slam 2 would be a fun arcade option for $14.99.

Man, I really want to bite on Syndicate and Shadows of the Damned, but I have such a backlog that I can't bring myself to do it. :l I'll totally think about this one for a bit though, thanks OP.

Nabbed Dark Souls (360) and Syndicate (360). Already platinumed DS on the PS3, but I enjoyed it so much I want to see what kind of pvp the 360 has to offer.

Recommending Shadows of the Damned. Bought it cheap thinking why not and it actually was a pretty good game

SotD is decent but the "most fun you've ever had?" Seriously? I could name a dozen better games I've played last week. Hell, ALL OF THEM.

Some of the most fun I've ever had.

The sentence is about me, not you. Why does it matter to you what games I find fun?

Also: This game was the most fun I've had. This game was some of the most fun I've had.

Two completely different sentences.

Just finished SotD today and it was worth the $30 I paid at BB last week (already got my price match). I finished it in 7:30 on Medium difficulty, but it was an awesome 7:30. Think of it as a raunchy Resident Evil 4.

It matters to us because you shared it as a reason for us to buy it. Once you share an opinion, you're open to hearing everyone else's too.

I've been eying Grand Slam Tennis 2. Has anyone played it and would you vouch that it's worth the $29.99 etc.?

It would be fine if he got what I said correct. But coming from the local Suda critic it didn't hold much weight.

Exactly, that's why I never bought any game that has a $20+ price tag, except for rare games that I know will raise in value.


Well I paid $15.82 each for used copies of Syndicate, Dark Souls and Portal 2. :D

I have zero interest in the multiplayer, and from what I hear the single player campaign is your typical 7-ish hours long. Plus it's been out for several months now - The Darkness II, which only came out a couple of weeks before this did, has already been on sale for $12.

Anyone who's been tracking how fast game prices have been dropping on this type of game lately should know that it's inevitable that this will be in the $10 range very soon. So no, IMO it's not worth $30.


Agreed. $10 is my pricepoint

I'll be sure to keep that handy little dismissal in mind next time you ever talk bad about two similar games. Once you become a "xxx critic," you get to be shrugged off.

"Some of" fails to change the tone of my post. I thought it was thoroughly mediocre outside of those story books.

Similar games? Though the most and some of the most are entirely different - it's true that your point hasn't changed. You could name all of those games you've played and I could disagree or agree but my point hasn't changed. It was some of the most fun I've ever had in a video game. Anyway this argument probably won't be changing anyone's opinion on whether or not to buy the game so I'll stop here.

I want Syndicate, but it's obviously going to keep dropping. I shall wait. Glad to see it still going down, though!

I'm in the same boat as you. Went ahead and picked up Syndicate with the idea that it may drop another 10 bucks in the next 45 days. Being a Premier Silver member I've got 45 days to price match...or is it now 60 days?

I'm not even sure how I'm a silver member anyways. I've never spent $2,500 in a year at BB. This is my 3rd year silver...go figure.

Thanks!

Got SotD, bought/beat/traded the game back when I paid $50 for it. Not worth it at that price but a fun ride thats definitely worth $20.

I'll still wait for Syndicate to drop to $20 before I bite...

Yes it is. The reality is they tried to do some things differently with the gameplay mechanics and it just never worked. I would like to meet the person who thought it was a good idea that fully pulling the left trigger in a FPS should cement you to the ground. Otherwise this is an semi enjoyable game for about 3-4 days. No multiplayer either due to no one playing...you cannot even play the horde mode by yourself.
