The game was pretty good for one playthrough. Short (~6 hours) but fun. It's worth getting for sure, just that you need to decide how much you'd be willing to pay for a game of that length.

That's an interesting question. Value is very subjective and differs from person to person, but in my case I view that as two very long movies' worth of entertainment. Two movies on Amazon would cost about 10 bucks each (in some cases less), for a total of 20, so 20 bucks would be the max. I'd be more comfortable with $15.

Not the best metric I admit but it's the one I use. I'd rather pay full price for a game like Deus Ex or Dead Island, where my singleplayer playtime clocks in at 30+ hours.

It looks really cool, but there's a lot of negative buzz about the campaign length. Is there anything to do once you beat it?

It has a co-op campaign which can last another couple of hours but it's not really well designed so I didn't enjoy it too much. The game has a New Game+ mode where you can play through it again with all of your previous upgrades if you are into that sort of thing.

Yes, play it again... because it's fun!

There is a separate set of missions for coop but it's just fluff.

Bought Serious Sam 3: BFE for $13. Couldn't pass it up at that deal.

Oh, wow, missed that. Thanks! Don't forget Double D, either. Fun little game.


And yeah DX for $10 is an awesome deal, and one of my favorites of last year.

Darkness II is $25 at Amazon (Steamworks game), perfect at that price. Hell, Yahtzee himself liked it.

And something amazing about it: From the time I start up the executable to the time I'm playing the game, less than ten seconds passes. No annoying fucking intros that can't be skipped and pretty much the fastest loading time I've ever seen.
