Is This A Game Worth Buying?

I know I'm kinda late on this, but is this game worth buying? I've had some of my friends say that it's one of the best arcade games made yet, so I'm unsure. What do you guys like the most about the game and what's bad about it?

There's a demo and there are reviews all over the internet. Try and read. Decide for yourself. I personally loved it though, well worth the 800 I paid on sale but easily worth 1200 as well.

Definitely YES. I bought it on release, and it is just fantastic. Easily one of the best arcade games out there. It's better than many full retail titles!

The best bit is the exploration, and the map screen, which helps you to be very thorough looking for the collectibles and upgrades, and back tracking when needed. A fantastic arcade game.

I don't think there is any "bad" about it, although if you don't like that type of game you may not enjoy it, so give the demo a go.

I loved this game and will probably go back and play it again soon. If you are a fan of any of the old Metrold style games, you will especially love it.

As said above, they have it on sale for 600 Microsoft Points today. In my opinion, it's a steal.

Shadow Complex is one of the best platformers I've ever played. It plays smoothly, has amazing gameplay, fun and simple achievements (which keeps record of your achievement progress [like Gears of War]), and a good storyline that keeps you hooked. It also has lots of replay value.

Got it for 600MSP last week, well worth the money. One of the best XBLA games I've played, it's polished like a retail title.
I took 12 hours to do my first run on hardcore, so you can make it last as long as you want really.

I bought it while it was on sale just by luck because i was going to buy the game anyway. It is well worth it despite the grinding you'll probably have to do for the Level 50 achievement
