Good, long, fun ? Sure your talking about AITD ? Sometimes this games makes me . But if you dont consider the controls, the lousy camera work, fr*kkin combo keys to get the stuff you want; then the game has a nice ring to it. If you like the type of "we are all going to hell" games like i do, it's worth it. I paid 20 Euro's for it, but its the special edition first owned by me.

Its a decent buy for 10. It's a good game to start with but gets a bit hard the last two levels but if you persevere you will complete the game fairly easy and get a reasanable amount of achievements

It's worth getting for 10. Just be prepared for some frustrating moments and lot's of re-trys. I found it to be worth the effort.

I'm not sure if you've already made your mind up about buying this game or not. I just thought i'd let you know what I think. I got the game not too long after the release and I payed 30 for it.

I think that it is a good game, although i can be a bit hard and frustrating at times but it is a relatively easy 1000 if that's what your after. After completing the game once I got all the achievements but I haven't even touched the game since so I feel that it is not worth full retail price for me but if you can pick it up cheap then I would say go for it.

I bought it from play.com for 4.99 brand new. Well worth it, really enjoyed it as it's not the sort of game I usually play so to me it was quite refreshing.
Only one achievement is eluding me, Handyman Carnby. I have made everything in the required list twice and still nothing. Ah well time to trade it as it's not the type of game you play through multiple times I guess.

it just isn't fun to play whatsoever. The story is laughable as are the characters and dialog. The controls are clunky. Takes too long to do something incredibly simple. But hey if you still want it it's now 4 on play.com

For 10 bucks every game is worth a buy for me xD

But yeah, I played it last year when it came out and I never once played a game that pissed me off more. IT's not that it's that hard, but the controls and the fact that you NEED fire made some situiations frustraiting as hell. And when I came to the point were I got rid of half of the trees and the game gave me the same amount after a minor puzzle I just said "Fuck it!" and stopped playing. Never played through the last chapter.

Maybe I will get it someday and finish it, but seariously those trees are the death of the game >.<

Only 3.99 on play.com atm, which would be worth it.

Hopefully this will be a somewhat easy and doable 1000. I picked this up from Goozex for 100 Points, [$5 equivalent] so hopefully its worth it =]
