I didn't think it was as bad as king kong but i would still rather watch paint dry, still its an easy 1k. You would be better off renting this game unless you want to cramp your shelf up with a crap game?

King Kong was a million times better, Xmen was and probably still is the worst game I've played on the 360. The achievements aren't a walk in the palk either, I definitely didn't think I would get 1000 on it but I did. Only play if you want to boost your gamerscore.

I agree a shit game and should only be used for points. Payed 15 for mine and can't seem to find the strength to put it back in the xbox to finish it.

9 bucks isnt bad. That's only slightly more than what you would pay to rent it.

If I was you I would buy it. If you rent it them you have force yourself to play the crappy game in 5 days or less. But if you buy for basically the same price as a rental you can take breaks from it and finish whenever you want

I agree with smokez, besides, it's almost as much as it's worth playing.

It's not the worst game i've played but it's around that area. In all honesty, I probably would buy it for that price as it's pretty cheap. Like Smokez said, if you rent it, you pretty much have the time you rented it for to complete it, otherwise you'll probably pay more in total if you rent it again. It's not a game I would want to force myself to complete quickly as it's just tedious.

Not that great of a game at all, but at $9, you cant really go wrong with it..

Plus, as people said, its a pretty easy 1000 gamerpoints..

i've read it's an easy 1K and for $10 at kmart, it will atleast kill sometime. and after playing the first levels, probably raise my blood pressure from frustration. why can't colossus defend himself from 3 peons?

just makes the old arcade game that much better.

It depends on how much renting it costs. If renting is about the same, yes owning the game is better than owning it for a week for the same price. However once you get the full 1,000 (soon) you will be done. Somewhat of a tough decision. I suggest buying it if it's really that low.

Yeah definately worth a pick up at that price. It isn't too terrible, the achievements are very easy, and when you're done you can trade it in at a gamestop or something and make the price of it that much cheaper.

I would say yes, just because to rent it costs 8$...so you might as well just buy it for an extra dollar, get the 1000 and then just have the case on your shelf.

I didnt think it was as bad as everyone said, it was pretty awful but some people exagerated it. You could tell there were a few people on the development team that maybe cared what they were making but probably 90% of them didnt. For 9$ you cant really go wrong, increase your library for dirt cheap and of course real easy 1000. One or two of the final missions will make you want to tear your hair out on superhero though.

It is a great deal at 9. We need to keep in mind that it is almost 10 dollars to rent a game.

Buying it for slightly more than what it would cost you to rent it is a good move in my book
