Damn I'm tempted and price has been stingy for it. I would like to get it for $15-20 so I'll sleep on it and decide when I wake up.

I don't know a whole lot about this game other than it looks interesting, but I was looking at the cover at Gamestop and thought I saw it say you needed Xbox Live Gold. Is this an internet only game?

Yup, only has online multiplayer.

For anyone on the edge of buying this game, go for it! Amazon shipped it to me on release day and I've enjoyed it ever since. In fact, I traded the physical copy in at Best Buy so I could buy Xbox credit and get the game digitally so I can just jump into it any time. :)

For anyone still considering the game, watch a YouTube video or a Twitch broadcast to get a feel for the game.

This game is great, if you got nothing else to play on your X1 then I suggest you pick this up. Lots of value for a multiplayer only game, plus all the DLC is free.

FYI / side note to this for anyone wondering, it comes out on the PC on Tuesday for $29.99 as well - at least through the Origin site.

I was about to buy this since I've been really wanting it, but I wanted it for co-op play. Looks like co-op is only available on one game mode though, so I'll pass for now.

Played a bit of it on X1 pretty solid game. Can't wait for the PS4 release.

Such a great and fun game, really didn't expect it to be really good

I bought it mainly cause I was waiting for titanfall but I kept coming back to plants vs zombies. It was just better imo

I agree with everyone else. It's a super fun game, best multiplayer experience I've had in a long time. 

 

I don't know about the Xbox One, but it still has a very active community on the 360.

I wonder if the split screen is for all modes. I have it on x1 and it has split screen but for just the horde mode and not online mp

The X1 and PS4 versions feature wise are similar with the exception of 900p/60fps(X1) vs 1080p/60fps(PS4) plus remote play for PS Vita.

Almost pulled the trigger, but online only kills it for me.  My 6 year old daughter has been wanting this game, but she only has silver.  She'll have to stick with the iPad versions for a while longer.

$4.27 with unlocked and my $20 rewards certificate. I imagine it's probably worth that.

@immortal and this is a third-person competitive shooter. Make sure that's something your six-year-old would actually dig. Unless, of course, you're just using her as an excuse to get the game ... in which case, go for it!

I bought this game at launch. Loved it. Played it more than Titanfall. My house was burgled (such a silly word) and it was stolen. This is a great price to rebuy. Thanks for the heads up OP.

Perhaps it was the plants and or zombies depending on which side you played.

EA doesn't allow kids under 13 to use their online services, so even if she had gold, she couldn't play most of the game (if her account is setup correctly).  Someone correct me if i'm wrong because this is a reason I am avoiding the game for my kids for now.  Obviously, she could play under another account.   My kids don't like doing that.
