edit: keep in mind, this is the US Amazon. Throwing that out there. 
 
Okay, okay. I get it. Lost Planet 2 is a shit game, or so the majority of reviews indicate. But hey, if you're interested it's there! This post is mainly to inform you, but i'll throw in my opinion.
 
If I had a little more money, I'd probably buy it solely because it's so cheap. Maybe it'll still be on sale for a few days, cause I'm hoping to get an Amazon gift card for family christmas (tomorrow). It seems unlikely though, so if you're on the fence, jump on it now. I'm really, really restraining myself from buying it and then trading it in to gamestop/walmart (it's brand new) cause even without a receipt, I'll probably make money, despite the money being in the form of store credit. 
 
So, what do y'all think?

Why are they still overcharging for the game?

LP2 is a fucking awesome game. Didn't get the love or respect it deserved! $10 is a steal.

@SteamPunkJin: i agreed, in my head. well the steal part at least, considering i've never played it. there's very few 360 games I won't buy for $10 if I have themoney

Who ever says Lost Planet 2 is shit is nucking futs! That game was a blast to play, if just for the co-op! 
Stunning environments and intense gunplay that requires some decent teamwork with your comrades to achieve some objectives. 
 
And OMG the boss fights were amazing! So many "Oh SHIT!" moments. 
$10 for this game is an amazing deal. Don't listen to the haters.

Ha. Good one.
 
I saw it for like 10 bucks or something at Staples a couple weeks ago, but passed. And I'll buy anything.

If you liked the first Lost Planet then it is totally worth $10, but if you didn't then stay away. I enjoyed it for what it is.

@CoheedFavorHouse:  If it's as horrible as the first one then I think they're charging 12 bucks too much for it! I'd save up and get a limited edition of Year of the Black Rainbow, I hear the novel is actually pretty good :P

I really don't think this is a good game. Get it if you like deals, but not if you like games. This game can be incredibly frustrating if you don't have some friends to play with. If you do, it's playable and can be fun. I just can't stress enough how frustrating it can be on your owned. Be warned.

I bought it today at Best Buy for $9.99.  I'm having a lot of fun with it.  Of course, if I had paid fifty or sixty for it, I'd probably have a different opinion.
