Every once in a while I see people asking if it is worth playing and I am here to remind people not to give Gearbox any money for this scam of a game.

I think it's worth the $5 if you completely ignore the story/terrible AI and take advantage of the online to play with friends. It's a good few hours of mindless entertainment.

That being said, I feel sorry for anyone who paid full price for it.

I bought it the other day for $5 because my friend was playing it and said it was worth it. Pls don't hate me.
Still has a glimmer of hope for Shenmue III

I paid $60 for the 360 version and I was not disappointed, the mutliplayer is solid and the campaign, while lackluster, is a decent co-op experience.

Picked it up for $4 the other day. Played it for about an hour. Such utter trash, I expected better from Gearbox.

Honestly, if someone lacks the mental capacity to avoid the game at this point, with no shortage of bad press for the game, they deserve all the tedium/misery the game can provide.
