I've enjoyed it so far. Bit like GTIV. That's a fantastic price. Try the Steam demo if you're unsure.

I'll also add that this is a good, solid title. Great price for this.

I really enjoyed the main game and would probably have paid the $7.50 for the music alone. Sure, it's not perfect (mostly in that the world starts off awesome but ends up feeling fairly lifeless a couple missions in), but it was still pretty damn solid.

The expansion, though: not really worth it and quite a bit different from the main game. They seem to have converted it into some sort of score-attack thing.

Already snagged this during the holiday sale, shame the DLC isn't on sale this week or I'd pick (more of it) up.

Awesome game for the price. If you have the rig and GPU you will be shocked at the graphics. Especially if you are Nvidia with the Physx.

GET IT NOW!!!!!

I got it during the xmas sale. good buy /endorsement

Lil tip: do all the side missions whenever they are available. I thought I'd have more time to go back and do em, but I was wrong.

$7.50 in USA... 10€ (13-14 US dollars) in Europe. Screw them.

I liked this one too, but towards the end it got somewhat dull, kinda like the the first game. Just too much pointless driving around.

Direct2drive has price matched this. If you use the code "hangover", you can get it for $6.00. It also activates on Steam from what I've heard.

I grabbed it on steam and played for a while. Are all of the "Chapters" 15 minutes long? Not really a chapter imo...

Also, they really like making me drive around. I think in a hour or so of playtime I finished 5 chapters, drove around for 50 minutes, and had actual shooting or active driving with an objective for maybe 10 minutes.

I remember the first one starting like that though, and it got amazingly awesome once it hit its stride. Also, it looks and plays very nice.

I like driving. You get car damage for the slightest mishap (which I actually don't like so much, GTAIV is far more forgiving in that regard), but I love powering through corners and lights. The cops won't even chase you for that.
