Wink Deal Of The Week!

All next week Shadow Complex is 'Deal Of The Week' at 560 MSP's down from 1200 MSP's. At that price this game is a steal!

(14th of June 2010 - 20th of June 2010)

Considering getting it. Is it worth it..? I want to get the full 200G and my friend had it and said it was good fun. Y/N? What's good and what's bad?

BTW, it's either Splosion Man or this. Which is best..?

Thankyou in advance .

Well erm, out of Splosion Man or Shadow Complex I would have to go with Shadow Complex, While I enjoyed Splosion man it got a bit repetitive after a while and I haven't touched it since. Shadow Complex is an alround bigger game imo alot more to do with added story and great voice acting (Nolan North - Uncharted 1 & 2), collecting items and leveling up (1-50), boss fights, Metroid style gameplay and much more all add up to make this game stand out from the other Arcade titles. I really like it so far.

Value for money this week though:-

Splosion Man - 800 down to 400
Shadow Complex - 1200 down to 560

I would also check out some reviews if you are still unsure:-

IGN gave it a 9.4/10 which is a great score

Picked this up today as I couldn't resist the deal. I was a hardcore super metroid speed-runner back in the 90's and this game really takes me back there. I've been thoroughly impressed so far.

Also picked up TMNT: Re-Shelled (considered Splosion Man but went for the nostalgia factor). I'm regretting my decision a bit tho as the gameplay for TMNT hasn't especially aged well. It's gonna be a pain to max it out due to repetition. Oh well, can't win them all, at least Shadow Complex is stellar!

I've been on the fence about this one, too. However, my major problem iwth it was it's steep price.

Deal of the Week, you claim another victim.

really good deal, but i got it already for 800 like half a year or so ago. I don't really understand why they keep repeating games for the Deal of the Week. I'm going to be pissed if Battlefield ever goes on sale again. That game was bad

I would definately go about purchasing this XBLA game, it is certainly one of the best ones out there. I was one of the lucky ones and won this game free via 1 vs 100, was awesome to find that it was a fantastic game too

I picked it up last night, i was undecided at first because of some upcoming DLC i want, but i pushed myself and got it.

Loving it so far and definitely worth the 560 points, it's a bargain!

Was on the fence between getting it with my spare points, decided to... and made the best decision of my life. Worth every penny.

Had just 350 ms points on my account before this deal of the week.

I went out and bought a 1600 point card, bought SHADOW COMPLEX and TRIALS HD and have 830 ms points left over

Great deal of the week, loved it. Shadow complex is fantastic and so is trials

I agree that it's a great game and I'm glad I got it at the bargain price, but I think I've made a few more decisions that were better in my life! At least I hope so.

I'm so glad I picked this game up when it was on sale. I've had a blast playing through this game and plan on playing through it a few more times. I'm a huge Super Metroid and I kind of forgot this kind of game play since the newer Metroids are all 3D. It's the game I didn't know I missed playing.

I took this to a LAN party recently and everyone kept coming over and going "Oh wow! This looks like a new Super Metroid! You got a Missle Pack?............this is definitely the new Super Metroid!"

Allow me to put it to you like this...

I bought Shadow Complex for 1200 MS pts. the day it came out...and it was worth it in every conceivable way. Now...its gonna be 560 pts...and people are actually wondering...actually unsure...if this is a purchase?!?!?!

Why?

Price Drop?

Anyone know if there will be another price drop on Shadow Complex any time soon? I got burn by the "Gears 2" price drop a few weeks ago.
