Question Rent it or buy it?

I posted the following in another thread, but thought it should be posted under a better heading - since my question isn't a hate issue (besides... that leads to the dark side - right?)!

I just bought this game (brand new) for 20 bucks. I'm not a keeper of games that are single-player-ONLY, and no replay value (unlike Oblivion, for example).

Would I be better-off returning this game (I haven't opened it yet - I'm playing another game I got just before it) and renting it (or buying it used from Game Stop - which "can" be a 7-day rental - and get a refund)?


Honestly, I would probably play the first ST:TFU game (again) - if I still had it, but I only rented that when it came out and hammered-out the achievements for it and the first DLC (then I bought it used from Game Stop a year or so later, played the Tatooine DLC, and got a refund).


If the game sucks so bad that it doesn't merit owning, I'll return it and get it used. I'd rather give Lucas my money for Star Wars on Blu-Ray (which is coming this September, I might add)... than a game which didn't have any "force" unleashed in it!

I would honestly get the used version, do as much as possible in a week span and give it back. I've played the first one and seen gameplay of the whole second game and the single player is fairly simple and there is so much you can only replay in it so much till the point where it gets boring.

I would buy it - this jsut like the 1st one is a keeper that you can always load back up after beating it and enjoy going through the game again

Something about Star Wars games, I don't ever buy them. I would get it used, use your week span they give you incase you "don't like it" then give it back and get something better.

I bought it, only because it was the collectors edition. Otherwise I would advise renting it. There is no multiplayer, little to no replay value and it can be finished in less than a week. Rent it, if you find you really like it you can always buy it later on down the track.

I did the same thing...bought the collector's edition for $20, played it for 3 days...then resold on eBay for $30.

Unless you are a HUGE star wars fan, this is a rent.

In retrospect, I would have rented it. Only took me ~6 hours to beat. Not really worth the purchase.

You can buy it new for 20. Used for like 10. Or rent it for around 10 bucks (for 3 - 5 days). I'd buy a used copy. You won't feel rushed.

My advice would be to buy a used copy, get all achievements within a week easily then sell for same price you bought it for. It's a waste of money buying it new as you will only get about a week worth of entertainment out of the game. It's definetely not as good as the first TFU .

I'd rent it. Decent game, but very little replay value.

pissed me off.

That is one of the most annoyingly short games I've ever played. Everything in the game was on point and perfect as far as I was concerned. Just couldn't stand the fact that I beat in in like a day.

Loved makin vader my bitch, tho...

if all you want is to 100% it, rent it. if you want to replay the campaign and master the challenges, it's worth buying... used.
