Thinking about buying I Am Alive.

#1_LordAndSaviorPosted 2/16/2013 2:42:19 PM(edited)
What are you guys opinions should I buy it now, wait for a possible sale, or just skip it all together?

I really enjoy games with a post-apocalyptic setting and games with a great story, I played the Demo and really enjoyed it. But has there been a sale recently? Or do you feel it's worth the full price?

Thanks again for the opinions everyone, very much appreciated.

At least wait for a sale. It's not awful, but the controls are wonky and can be frustrating. It's a good challenge though, I wouldn't say skip it.

I bought it at full price when it came out and I loved it. It probably was on sale already at some point, but I thought full price was worth it. But it's one of those games where most people either love it or hate it, you don't usually get middle ground opinions on it.

It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

Hmm, so I just need some questions answered without any spoilers obviously, does the game have a good story?

Also has it been on sale yet?

Yes and yes

Truth is, the game is very much a vertical slice. Condensed.

It feels like a lot of very intense content for such a miniature length, but the game itself is very impressive when compared to xbla usual.

If I'm being honest, it's mostly like a miniaturized version of a full game, like Dead Rising case Zero. But that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Not in the slightest!!

It looks like it was on sale just a few months ago in November, I'm pretty new to Xbox how often do games go on sale?

I'd say buy it... It's a very interesting game with some intriguing mechanics.
