How much would/did you pay for this game?

I saw on the forums that in the USA this game was being sold as a budget title, some $20 cheaper than some new releases. I was quite surprised then, to find this was the full 39.99 in Asda today. I'm not sure, from reading the feedback on here that this game, with a 15 hr playtime to 1000g is worth that, especially as I'm interested in other games coming out shortly. Has anyone seen it cheaper in the UK, and what do players think its worth?

it's around the 30 mark online, i almost pre-ordered for 31 from SimplyGames. it'll drop like a stone soon enough tho, same as Aliens:CM, so just wait it out. i'm just gonna get it from lovefim at some point, sounds like it's really not worth a purchase.

I got it for 24 something.
31.99 on tesco direct, 5 off when spent 25 on entertainment then staff discount.

I'd say it's worth the 24.
With gears out same day and bioshock next week I think I can imagine a lot of people choosing them but being a big walking dead fan I decided to choose this.

I just borrowed it from a friend. I'd say a $20 price would be good. It's extremely underrated considering the 36/100 on Metacritic. It's actually better than I expected and I enjoy trashing games.

I got it for 26-something, I think it's worth around the 20 mark but I've had fun with it so far even though I've not played too much of it and I have a laugh with a guy at work about it.

I paid 5 USD (rented + completed, hehe) and I'd pay not more than 32 USD!

HA! I beat you.. $2.17 (Rented and completed). After the last achievement, I turned it off and went straight to the nearest RedBox to return it even I had less than 2 hours to spare before I would've gotten charged for a 2nd day. $32 max sounds right though.

Yeah well a few dollars here or there doesn't bother me much. I was more pissed by the random survivors. All in all cheaper than paying the full retail price!

It was a rental for me as well. I am hesitant to pay full price on most games nowadays. And there was no way I was buying this one (Though I did enjoy it).

I rented it, so far it has been ok... I would not pay anything over $10 to own this rushed typical Activision money hungry product.

I didn't buy it. I saw a kid walking out the shop with it. So I bitch slapped him upside the head and gave his horrified mom a good bangin. Nah seriously, it was a birthday present. Bit can you imagine if i had done that!?

I've been waiting for the price to go down as I don't like rushing to complete RedBox rentals. Found it used for $39 last week but decided to keep waiting. Went back this week and it was $27 at the same shop. Seemed fair enough. If I finish it within a week or two it should still be worth $20+ in trade credit at Game Stop. (Looks like they're still selling it used for $44.)

Which was the birthday present? The game, the slapping or the bangin'?

I've got it through GameAccess (like Game Fly) a month or so ago on PS3. Played through twice over a weekend. And I'll admit, I liked it enough that I put it back on my queue as a 360 title. Just got it this morning in the mail and I'll play through it at least twice again.

So, I've probably only put $8-$12 towards the game, but I would have bought it had it hit $30...I just ended up renting it first. I do think the game is underrated, even though it's clearly budget/cash-in. It's a game that I enjoy more than I should. It's more than the sum of its parts, if you will.

But yeah, I'd have spent $20-30 and felt fine with that...then again - I also bought Alpha Protocol for 360, PC and PS3

I rented it from game fly, then kept it, cost me $26.00 U. S. Still a little high for my taste but the game is ok with me. Who doesn't love killing Zombies.

Rented it, played it for half an hour, put it back in the post.

Going by some rushed maths it worked out as about 30p for the time i played it. Still too expensive, game was horrible.

Good on the people who managed to get at least some enjoyment out of it though. Don't know how you managed it.

I bought it for 39.99 and sold it on EBay as fast as I could, for almost what I paid for it. Horrible game.
