My copy shipped from Gamefly today. I'd buy it if there weren't so many damned games coming out in the next few weeks. A rental will have to do for now unless the Keep It price is low enough.

I'll be getting it, I liked the first one and am very hopefully there isn't just two major parts that decide if you're good or bad. The co-op sounds like it will be really fun so i can't wait to try it out.

I preordered it and I've already racked up a jillion dollars in Pub Games. But I'm not sure how much time I'll have to play over the next couple of weeks since I'm busy at work, and I know Fallout is going to suck up any free time I have once that comes out. So it may be a few months before I really dig into this.

Preordered this from Amazon.com after that $10 off deal (plus the old Bill Me Later coupon). I should be getting this tomorrow from them, I can't wait. It will provide a good change of pace after getting the shit scared out of me constantly while playing Dead Space.

Yep. Got my OXM in the mail today and they gave it a 9.5!

I plan on visiting TRU tomorrow to get rid of my first placeholder.

IGN gave it an 8.8 (though IGN UK gave it a 9.5 I think), saying the co-op was flawed and not really well done, but the single player part of things was good.

I had lots of credit to Gamestop, so pre-ordered this.

Amazon should have mine delivered tomorrow. I need to go and make more money in the Pub! I don't quite have a jillion yet! ;-)

Should mention that the same person gave GTA4 a 10, just to put their scoring into perspective.

Cool. That means I should like it then.

The only games I have for 360 are Dark Agent (forget the exact name, FPS bought at launch) and GTAIV. I'm very tempted to pick this up - especially with CC's $15 iTunes GC offer - but I'm affraid it will underperform like Fable 1. While it was fun to play, in a Zelda like way, it didn't deliver on the good/evil, limitless outcomes, every action has an effect, etc. Any feedback on how this one fairs in that regard?

I haven't read all these yet - but things are sounding good.

I actually enjoyed the first one, after getting over the immense overpromises. Hopefully you don't age so damn fast, and there really are consequences for actions more than waving a decapitated head around.

I'm still bitter about overpromises.

I hope to rent this at some point because i heard the stuff with the dog is fabulous.

From what I have heard, yes it is. I don't plan on playing online, so I am not really concerned with it.

Wasn't planning on getting this but saw it for 54.99 at Fry's and bit. I almost bought an Xbox way back when to play the first one. The reviews swayed me for this one. If I can pull myself away from Rb2 I may try it tonight.

Got mine today. Trying to decide if I want to play it when I get home or watch From Russia With Love on Blu-ray.

I played for an hour, and I like it. The LE content is great. The dog is amazing. He tells you where chests are and can smell items that are buried nearby.

He ended up finding a condom for me
