I have been waiting for a price drop for this game for a looong time. It is only single player and I am no achievement hunter so I will most likely play it once and put it away. It does not seem to want to go under 40 however, is it worth that price point even for just one play through?
Personally I loved the game, I picked it up for $20 a month back and it is fantastic. I can see why people say wait cause if you end up not liking the game it will seem like a waste, but you have people like me that loved the game and I wish I picked it up day one. So I say wait since I did and use the money you saved to get at least the story DLC
I don't know where you live, but the newegg eBay store has the game for $17 with free shipping.

Depends. If you're one of those people who's concerned with length for your dollar, maybe not. But it's easily one of my favorite games this year, so I think 40 dollars is totally worth it. You will want the true ending DLC though. A little gross that they'd do that, sure, but that stuff is fantastic.
Like others are saying, buy it on Amazon, or Newegg or something and get it for 20ish instead. But remember, you're going to want to buy the DLC which is 7 dollars or so, so factor that into your price.
But the game is worth it, if you like anime, or just Japanese ridiculousness in general you'll probably like it!
