    so i managed to pick this up for the grand sum of £14 brand new....

    its not bad, it just feels rushed together with awful controls and a few bugs here and there that actually force you to reload the game.

    anyway who else has got it?

    i got it and i really like it but as you said controls are not the best and because of some bugs i can't play it on my ati card without lowering vegetation settings and i'm not gonna do that and i'm too lazy to put my gts in just for aitd.

    I had it on the 360 and i was good, I am planning on getting it on PC so I am hoping it will be just as good, graphical wise etc.

    i can assume graphics are better due to higher res, but thanks to the higher res, alot of the stuff looks crapm while others look good

    So what do you guys think? Is it worth buying, or better be left on the shelf?

    if its £14 then sure, otherwise at 29.99, dont bother!.

    it is a shambles to be honest, though its fun.

    Thanks, Smellybumlove! I already had it in my hand one week ago, but decided that for $49.99 and the comments which I read here it's still too expensive. I guess, I'll buy it when it's down to $19.99. :D

    Got the game 3 weeks ago and havent been able to play it once.
    It does not load and no one knows how to fix it.
    Tried to contact Atari Support twice with no one returning my e-mails.

    Waste of money...

    Paid for a game that does not work :p

    does it keep doing the copy protection thing with the box that pops up and you have to click ok?.

    if so i get that also, just shut down everything running in the background and it should boot fine.

    one of the irrating aspects of this game is when it switches out of 1st person mode, you have to hit tab again, its not a big deal but it pisses you right off when its a crucial moment.

    also my game locks up sometimes when i go into my inventory, you can save/load and everything but the game just freezes saying press ' for your favourites.
