New link was added show price of $26.99 at ecost.com
Still not interested in the game.
If this atmospheric shooter fails, I hardly can see THQ wanting a sequel to improve over the original, and the whole STALKER/post apocalyptic theme would suffer. Game seems to be very worth the price come on. Consider those -$20 is because game lacks multiplayer.
...you took the time to post in the comment section. *SNIFF* I smell a bitter/jealous Sony fantroll.
@1.1 Sadly, atmosphere is about the only good thing the game has going for it. The gameplay is really bad and feels very stiff and random. The graphics were touted as being amazing, yet on max settings at 1080p on my computer, it is average at best: high res textures, good lighting, horrible characters models, very generic setting (although lighting helps the setting a lot), bad voice acting (at least the English is...bad Russian accents...maybe I should have played with Russian audio with subtitles), bad animations, boring/stale gameplay. Anyway, I'm just naming the bad stuff, as the game isn't really that bad. The 7-7.5's the game has been getting is about right. It's not terrible, but it feels like Fallout 3 with a far less open world, stripped RPG mechanics, less content, etc., however I think the atmosphere is actually better, and that goes a long way. ~$25 would be worth it if that's what it's going for. I regret paying $50 though, especially considering how many great games I've bought recently.
they should of released it on XBLA .. *shakes head* i think it still would of flopped.
Folks should give it a try. ;)
The deal just got wayyyyyyyy better.
That sold me. I'm in.
...What the heck is this game?
Early adopters be damned...
...I pre-ordered off of Amazon, and got it for $49.99, with free RELEASE DAY DELIVERY, and also got a $20 gift card...which I used for MS points, that were discounted by $5. A smart consumer ALWAYS gets a great deal. :)
Huge discount already?! That says it all.
Yeah, it says it's cheaper.
i dent know much about this game other than russians, guns and blowing stuff up thats enough for me to be interested
I know it!
for that price i would snap the game up but unfortunately i'm in the uk. the problem i have with metro is it looks like it would be a game i'd enjoy but i'm unwilling to pay full price for a short single player game which has been getting critisism for terrible ai
It's a great game, well worth buying.
Still 37 after shipping.
How bad have the sales been? It is a cool game and worth that price, but I suspect bigger price drops if the price is already discounted a scant couple weeks after hitting the streets. After getting burnt a bit on Brutal Legends (price dropped pretty fast on that one-not this fast though), I am a bit more savvy with the waiting game on price drops.
