I can get it new for 20$, worth it?

#1 Posted by Fear_the_Booboo (486 posts) -

So there's a store just by where I live that sell this game for 20 bucks.
 
Is it worth it? I mean, the game looks really funny, and while I don't enjoy 50 cent music, I'm pretty sure I would enjoy it while killing dude. Is the gameplay okay, at least? I just don't want to laugh for a good hour and then be bored with it and never play it again.
 
Thanks.

Why buy it new? I'm sure you get can it used for like $5.

I dunno dude, You can buy a lot of Ramen for $20.

I'd rent it instead, if you can, it's very short like you said and you'll never want to play it again once the laughs are had.

Otherwise, 20 bucks is too much in my view.

For twenty bucks, maybe get it. It really depends. The game is okay, and the 50 cent stuff is just ridiculous. I found myself cringing a little too much for my taste while playing it.

I'm sure you can find something better for 20 bucks.

@Fear_the_Booboo: 50 cent blood on the sand is one of the best shooters i played last year. No bullshit. I'd buy it.

Thanks,
 
I'll probably rent it then.

It's $16 at Amazon right now and was $8 at Best Buy last week. You might see more deals if other stores are trying to clear out their stock.

If I had $20 spare, a 50 Cent video game is probably among the last things I'd consider buying.

Yes, have a friend do coop and its really yes.

@louiedog: I'm in Canada, so the deals are not the same. On amazon, it's 20$ also.

Its only worth it if its ironically 50 cent

yo fear_the_booboo, buy that big ass game!! (thats a joke, dont do it)

Probably not. Like you said, you'll probably laugh for an hour and then never play it again.

Buy it used, or use that $20 on Ramen.  You would really get more value out of the Ramen, trust me. 
However, if you really want some comedy in your life and you have a 360, look that game up on Games on Demand. 
You'll laugh your ass to death. Literally, your ass will fall off and you'll die at the asking price for that game. 
If that doesn't tell you that Microsoft is mad insane for pricing things online, nothing will.

Yes?

The games pretty good, the combat and control is very simple "Point and shoot and hit those big ass ramps". However if you didn't follow GB when 50 Cent came out and have no idea what "Hit that big ass ramp" means or "Yo Fifty!" then you should not get it.

You can get it used (maybe even new) for $5. It's not worth 20.

Seems like the type of game one would rent and beat in a day or two to me.

#22 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

Yes, because that's all the world's youth needs today, a game about fiddy...fuck, i can really hate the world sometimes.

#23 Posted by RaikohBlade (593 posts) -

The game is apparently pretty decent, and will provide you with many laughs. That being said, it would feel wrong to pay more than 50 cents for that game.

#24 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1556 posts) -

@ SeriouslyNow - The question was if it was worth it so I said yes.

@Hizang: I wasn't on Giantbomb back then, but I did some research on what was the big fuss. That's basically the reason why I want to buy it. Seriously, fifty owes a lot to Jeff.
