El Shaddai isn't half bad

Especially for $2.99. The visuals alone are worth the price, and the combat is fun. I think the religious nature of the game is what sunk it in the eyes of most gamers.

It's worth picking up if youre a hack n slash fan.

You know, it isn't the price I've been worried about, but the time investment required.

After playing the demo, I just don't know.

This is EXACTLY why I'm interested in it for $3. Just waiting for them to fix the MSP purchase issue.

I think they fixed that issue hours ago.

That is what everybody has been saying anyway.

^ They already fixed it, or at least I bought it for the correct amount of MS points (240).

Edit: My post was addressed to Nova.

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

I'm downloading it right now. I remember playing the demo a few months back and thinking it was okay but not worth an immediate purchase.

But just about any decent game is worth $3. Even a used copy of Duke Nukem Forever generally sells for slightly more. This Ultimate Game Sale is certainly turning out to be the best thing XBL has done in a while.

What do you mean? Because the story is very religious in nature? Because it's offensive?

It's not really offensive or preachy or anything like that, but the story and characters have heavy religious tones.
