Finally a bargain-bin game. Not sure it's worth it, though. Graphics, gameplay, and animations are all crap.

I loved the gameplay. One of the most fun mindless action rpgs to date.

You couldn't be more wrong. Go play Halo.

Even if it wasn't $20, just have target price match Amazon for $20.

Ha, yeah right. It's easily one of the more enjoyable games I've ever played and I've heard the same sentiment from virtually everyone I've talked to about it. The combat is amazingly fluid.

Amazon's already price matched it (not sure if universal price drop or what), so I'd go that route with Prime for free shipping and no tax (at least here in my state - feel sorry for those of you whose legislatures make them charge you now).

I've never played it so I can't comment on the gameplay, but there is no way anyone can think the graphics are crap. It is a beautiful looking game.

I was thinking the same thing, because Nintendo really sets the standards when it comes to graphics.

If you check on Amazon, it says that the normal price is $19.99 (MSRP), so it seems like an universal price drop.

On the PS3 if you got a 7.1 sound setup it sounds AWSOME ...

After the demo was released, Schilling came out and said the demo was made from an earlier version of the game. It didn't sound like he even wanted a demo but EA forced the issue. The full game looks and plays a lot better, though some may not like the art style.

After Borderlands 2, this was my favorite game of 2012.

At one time there were 10 million subscribers to WoW, so I am sure the art style will hit home for most.

I agree. I had no problem with it, but there was some grumbling (as there is about everything) about the style.

um, at the risk of a sound thrashing, is this a normal "sale" with the little yellow sale signs or do I need to go looking for this on the always-on-the-move clearance shelves? I was in Target yesterday and didn't notice the game anywhere.

Don't bother debating with Nintendonly. He lives to troll the forums.

if you didn't play the game, how can you have an opinion that matters? It's like hey I saw the trailer for a movie and that movie will suck. Better yet even, you can say you hate marijuana and never have tried it.

All those words are just ignorant!

I am gonna go order from amazon now... thanks OP and others!

Grabbed this the first time I found it dropped to $30 and thought it was a steal at that price. Great game.

The demo for KoA does not do the game much justice, it just shows some of the mechanics instead of the awesome gameplay and later skills. It's literally the beginning of the game.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm gonna bite for that. Prime+Free shipping+No Tax = Win.

Hit up a Target on the way home that was supposed to have "limited stock" according to their website. Didn't find it. I don't know if I feel like running all over town to check the others.

Because calling them up and supplying them a DPCI number doesn't exist.
