Me as well. That is, if my paycheck ever comes. I'm bone dry on money right now.

This game is a Huge Terd and the sales show it. The game isn't fun at all and fails to impress on any level. Selling it at 19.99 just serves to clear the inventory and relocate this game to special orders only.  What a pukefest this game turned out to be.

You don't even think its worth a third of the price?

I don't think it was the game, but the lack of decent marketing for it, I never seen any adverts for this in the UK at all, not even in many game shops, I think they were over reliant on the players of the original Bionic Commando.

Ordered online, thank God I don't have to go into the store and leave with a bunch of goodies I can't afford! :)

I actually loved this game. Its extremely fun. 20 bucks is more than worth it.

I figure Gamestop is just trying to get rid of it in their inventory since no one is buying them and there's no point in keeping it on their shelves. Good deal though, but no my cup of tea.

Wow.  Not a single bit of constructive criticism.

$20 IS a steal for the game.  I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the single player, and I even spent quite a while in the multiplayer for the game (until the community died down).

@MushroomStamp: And exactly how much of it did you play?

Anyway, $20 bucks is definitely worth it. The game is pretty fun.

I ended up taking advantage of this deal without knowing it.  I love getting games at a discount -- I almost never buy 360 games at full price (Red Faction was an exception).  I went into gamestop yesterday just browsing through and saw Bionic Commando for $20.  I assumed they'd messed up, so I grabbed a copy.  Later I saw the game for around $54 used at FYE and chuckled to myself.

I still freely recommend BC to anyone who asks. It's a unique and interesting title, and whining like a bitch because you're bad at it is such a newschool gamer thing to do it practically justifies every claim of "it was better before". Back when i was a kid we played Battletoads to the end and LOVED THE PUNISHMENT son. Teaches you to appreciate things.

I bought it at $60 and thought it was worth that. Great game, to bad it didn't sell. Hopefully this will boost sales. GRIN needs it.

Gamestop was selling copies for $20 a while ago.
