Purchase or Rental?

The reason I ask is because I was originally going to rent it after playing the demo. But I've seen some reviews that say its very good with some intersting moral choices and story. So would you guys who have it say its worth the money? I did enjoy the demo but if it gets much better then I may consider a purchase.

The 1000 can be unlocked in under 25 hours. Going by that, I am claiming this game as a rental and nothing more.

I think a rental is the way Im heading. I think I'd be annoyed with myself if I bought it and didn't feel satisfied with my purchase. Theres still a few games I've got on the go at the moment anyway, so its not urgent. I'd still like to hear more opinions though.

So far the game IMO has been great. But I must agree with the above posts and say either rent or wait till the price drops.

If you have to ask, rent it.

It's a good game, don't get my wrong. But it doesn't have much replayability and you can get all the achievement in under 15 hours.

I don't think this game is selling well. Amazon already has it at $43. Lol.

I actually thought the game was great, but due to the campaign being so short I would say it's a rental only. Never played the multiplayer but I heard it wasn't all that great.

Im hating this game now due to the insta deaths in FUBAR mode. Its no fun, just pretty much popping out of cover to shoot for a fraction of a second and waiting for ages til an enemy shows his face.

Personally I rented it as I just wanted to play the game, regardless of my usual reason for ignoring a title, the difficulty achievement......And to be honest I wouldn't have been disappointed if I had bought it, really praying for some DLC so I can re-rent.

Such a shame the the usual BS difficulty achievements which I refuse to entertain has kept this one on 900......great game but ultimately because of the lack of originality in the achievement list....a 10/10 is only a 7/10 for me now...

If you're like myself, rich and beautiful, always wearing linen shirts, then buy it.

If you're poor, rent it.

I think the game is excellent, and really under rated.

BUT due to its length, its not realy worth buying. I'm jst borrowing it. If only they had kept it coop campaign, I would have bought it.
