is it any good?

i've seen a few trailers, but am still not convinced it's worth the 60 bucks.

Probably not woth $60 since the only reason to go back to it would be for achievements or if you're one of those old-fashioned guys who goes back to a game because you genuinely enjoyed it, but the game is good. I'd say wait for it to hit $30 or less if your hesitant, the game bombed anyways, so it'll hit that price soon enough.

For some reason there was ZERO marketing for the game. None.

The gameplay itself is pretty solid. It's a good... Dunno, 8-10 hours long. Honestly, the story is pretty thin until the end. But the humor between the protagonist and his sidekick keeps it going along pretty well.

I never got bored of it, that's for sure. But in all honesty, it's not a $60 game. I give it a solid 8/10, but wait until a price drop to $30.

Unfortunately, since it sold so few copies, it's unlikely that we'll see a sequel. It's a shame, cuz the game is pretty damn good. I just hope the dream team makes another game (Suda51, the composer, and that... other guy whose name escapes me...)

My 2nd favorite game of the year thus far after Portal 2. 60 bucks is a bit hefty for how little replayability there is though. I'd say absolutely get it for $50 or less.

One of my faves thus far this year as well. It's a fun, quirky adventure (8-10 hours as quoted) with enough gameplay variety to stay fresh.
No new game + or stacking difficulty achievements are two things that really bring my piss to a boil, but otherwise loved it. Perfect rental.
