XBOX Armed & Dangerous $14.99 at BB (GGC)

Armed & Dangerous is $14.99 at Best Buy after GGC coupon. Is it worth picking up? One review said it was pretty difficult, another said it wasn't that hard, since it has a very effective machine gun (and auto-aim). I've also heard it was repetitious and the gameplay became dull towards the end. So basically I'm looking for your opinions

Is it me or are we seeing an decrease in the time it takes for a title to go from full MSRP to a new discounted price. At this rate, I will never pay full price again unless I just have to have it (Halo2). Regardless, this has been good and bad for my wallet. I heard this game was a lot of fun. At a $20 price point w/o the coupon I am sure many on the fence reviews will favor this title.

I have it on the PC, it is very funny. Repetive action but very very funny. Totally worth $15.

It does get a little repetitive, but it's still a very fun game to play.
I believe there is also some downloadable content available for it, as well. Fifteen bucks for it is a steal.

You guys ARE getting a steal at $15. I paid full price when this game came, and thought it was money well spent. Enjoy.

I agree 100%. I'm gunshy in buying almost any game these days because of that very reason. $20 is becoming my new price point.

fixed.

I picked this one up as well; what the hell. I'd be over the XIII as well if my store had it. Might have to look around.

I agree on the price thing. I almost jumped on the new Splinter Cell for $30 at CompUSA. But then I decided that I could wait 6 months or less and get it for $14.99 at CC or BB.

Dungeons and Dragons is a great game at this price btw.

This game is GREAT. Super-fun racing game, and being able to have your favorite songs as the soundtrack is awesome. This game is totally worth $50, and at $20 it's a steal.

Yep, Burnout 2 is well worth $50, but even better at $14.99

Armed & Dangerous was a fun but repetitive game. Well worth 15.00 (for the experience of the weaponry, demolitions and humor). The old one eyed Yoda lookin thing was funny. Oh yeah...a big middle finger to Lucasarts.



No Episode III game for GCN. Bitches.

Picked up A&D last night. Fun. A lot like Serious Sam, only in the 3rd person perspective.

So where can I find Beyond Good & Evil cheap? I've been reading good things lately. Wanted to check it out.

The Tysons and Reston VA stores have a couple copies each last I checked.

I enjoyed the demo and look forward to playing this one. $15 seems like a steal.

Played through most of the game(I think) on the normal setting. There were a couple of places I got stuck for a couple of hours, but I have to say the normal setting is pretty easy. But very fun game. Hilarious.
