This was the cheapest PS3 game i ever bought for $.97 at Sears a couple years back.Really not my kind of game but i like metal music so i couldnt pass it up.I think i ended up beating the game and traded it in.I'd say its worth 3 bucks for anybody curious,although id agree the RTS was frustrating.

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.


Wait there is a patch that shows where stuff is located? I spent like 7 hours just looking for the dragons. I am still rocking the original disc software. (I haven't played it since my ps3 has been online).

I'm really starting to hate Bestbuy with their store pickup. They have managed to mess it up at every single opportunity.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

thats odd...the cashier rung it up at 2.99 earlier afternoon. He did chuckle because of the price but didn't ask questions. I enjoyed the game when I rented it when it was released even with the clunky RTS scheme.

It wasn't a patch, it was an eyeball that mounted on your car that looked towards any hidden stuff you hadn't found yet (dragons, songs, ect...)

Game was pretty good until the clunky and unnecessary RTS portion started.

+1, it made the game unplayable for me.

Crap, I didn't know that. I wonder if I can 100% complete the game if I am offline and running the old software. Anyone know if it is possible?

Called up yesterday and even tho the site said they were OOS whoever picked up the phone said they had one left and he held it for me at customer service. Picked it up earlier rang up $2.99 brand new!!! Also decided to pick up the skyrim revised and edited guide while I was there with the gamer club offer.

geez, how many copies of this did EA have printed? just about every retailer has had this below $5 at some point.

I picked one up today, still on sale for $2.99. This was after I ordered one online for in store pick up, and they cancelled it saying they had none in stock. I knew that was wrong, so I went to that store today and they had like 5 in stock.

The free Rock Band DLC makes this deal even sweeter.
FYI, every copy at my store had the DLC included. EA definitely over-estimated how much this game would sell. haha

You're better off with the Xbox version. The ps3 is plagued with a bug that can & will corrupt your save past a certain completion point.

I actually bought this at release and only started playing it this past October, a whopping three years later :p I thought it was a blast. The RTS elements could have been more refined, but they didn't stop the game from being an enjoyable experience overall. Granted, I only got to about 80% complete :p I need to get back to that...

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Same. I knew it was RTS going in (I also bought it dirt cheap like others long after its release) but I'm sitting at about 75% completion because it became too much of a chore.

Great deal. I wish there was shipping. Closest Best Buy is about 2 hours away. :(

Think Amazon would price match?

Our BB pricematched the used copy to the new copy price without question or issue.. he was happy to oblige us.

For $2.99, I'm happy with even a used copy.
