No, not if you lived in New Zealand/Australia, as is where most of these early impressions are from, or like others, who had their Best Buy or Amazon pre-order arrive today.

Got it for free like Anthem where you pre-ordered it, cancelled your pre-order, but still had it on your hard drive? Because that's more like theft.

Oh, cool!
Though I would describe that as "Got it as a gift" or "Got it with gift cards". But it's free to you I suppose..

20-22 hours. Like a lighter more forgiving Dark Souls.
Sounds pretty good but I will be playing at a low difficulty as I have a low threshold for frustration.

Same... 'Easy' for me is just fine at my age. I'm all about the experience and less about the stress.

I was on the fence about keeping pre-order, but the reviews have me sold. I am in.

I would seriously doubt this will be discounted at all before the end of the year.

Ditto. I have the day off today so I'm hoping my preorder arrives early so I can get a little time in before family duty calls tonight.

Sounds like it's the best single player Star Wars game since....when was the last great single player Star Wars game? Knights of the Old Republic maybe? But yeah I am in.

Mine is on the way from Amazon. UPS tends to deliver to my house late in the day so probably wonít get a chance to play until tonight.

All the reviews made it sound like an Uncharted/Metroid/Dark Souls hybrid, but with Star Wars and an adjustable difficulty. So yeah, I'm fully on board!

I've seen some not so favorable reviews starting to trickle in. Looks like it really starts to falter after the initial good times.

It's an 84 on Metacritic, same as last night. No new negative reviews added as far as I can see,

I guess it depends on what you prefer Uncharted vs Metroidvania. From what I have heard it starts off Uncharted then goes full Metroidvania.

Force Unleashed (the original, IIRC the second wasn't too hot)
