The RTS part of the game ruined it for me. I loved everything about the game until it came time to play the main part of the game... the RTS ugh. So tempted to pick it up for this price though wow.


I'm in exactly the same boat. The concept is awesome, and the gameplay was just fine the way it was in the beginning. But then the RTS portions showed up out of nowhere and killed it for me. It's still a great game, and it's definitely worth $3. But I just couldn't push myself to get through the RTS parts.

The PS3 version has an infinite loop at the store but if you add it from the search results you can do a store pickup.

Unavailable in my area, oh well, such is life.

Anything with Jack Black in it should cost $0.25.

yeah but i have the dlc that helps you find the collectibles, so it's a catch 22. i can't use the dlc if i don't get the patch updates. lol.
and really don't worry about the glitch unless you are going for plat. im a completionist and i didnt even hit the high 70% completion bug until i went back and tried to get all the collectibles. it can be done, but it has to be done in one sitting once you load a pre 77% completion or else it messes up your save file. i got to 76% and it was working fine. saved it and now it is corrupted or something, doh. oh wellz. ill start over and save all the collectibles til the end... some day... i dont know anything about audio bug, i just know the saved game messing up past 77% or so. and they fixed it but ea won't release it.

also i loved tim curry in it! and the 3 groups were interesting, the metalheads, goths and demons ;) and even the glam alt versions of metal heads were hilarious.

Wow lots of hate here. The game is easily worth $3, but it's not great. To me, the RTS sections worked perfectly fine, they just felt completely out of place. The developers strived to do something a little different and they did, but the results weren't all that great.

Some of you need to put more value on your time, especially if you have a backlog.

I bought the game awhile back when it was $10 and loved it. I traded it in awhile ago, but at this price I had to pick it up again. I am a metal head though, so I'm a little biased.

Great price! Thanks OP. I picked up a copy, and I was able to redeem the Rock Band DLC voucher! $3.25 with tax. I finished the game years ago for the PS3 so having a X360 copy is awesome.

Game was very meh when it came out. But for $3 its worth a try for anyone curious. The core idea was pretty good, but wrapping it in the psuedo-RTS gameplay really was a bizarre choice. Frankly I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it was just a fairly bland 3rd person action game. Its the stuff around the gameplay that made the game enjoyable.

I have an in store order, but I'll see if I pick it up or not. I neve finished the game, maybe 5 hours or so and the gameplay just got boring to me and I guess I just quit and never went back to it. Traded it in a long time ago.

This was part of the trifecta of games that I bought my 360 for (the others being Ghostbusters and Bionic Commando) but I never quite got around to picking it up.

That's changed, and I just put in a in-store pickup order.

I ordered mine online for store pickup last night, and walked in this morning to pick it up. Great deal.

Played the first level. So far, quite entertaining story wise and great Jack Black voiceovers. So far, it doesn't disappoint!

I bought the game used a long time back for $5. Enjoyed the game and sold it back for probably this amount. I can't pass up buying a new game at this price though. There were a lot of achievements I missed anyways.

Well that really sucks. Not a single Best Buy around here has the PS3 version in stock. And what's the point of mentioning free shipping on the item page and not allowing shipping?

Well worth it at rental price. I rented it when it came out and got over 500 gamerscore by simply doing the main missions.

That's pretty much how I felt about the RTS sections. I liked the game a lot more before the RTS parts were introduced.

I remember being tricked by the demo and buying this game when it was released. $3 is about what it's worth.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

No brainer at this price. I was really looking forward to the game and have to admit that I was a little disappointed with it @ $60. However, I feel the game is worth $20 or so. The OST is absolutely amazing and integrated into the game quite well.

I can also confirm that the Rock Band voucher still works, even though it “expired” three years ago today (12/31/09). This isn’t the first time I’ve redeemed an “expired” EA code. I wonder why they attach an expiration date if it doesn’t mean anything.
Anyway, if you biting on this deal for the Rock Band songs, be sure that the copy has a “Limited Editon Bonus Offer” on the cover art.

Ditto! Just redeemed the code and the music pack is downloading as we speak! :)
