Opinions from people whove bought perfect dark xbla edition or puzzle quest 2...

Im deciding if i should nab either at full price, especially considering ive missed them both on sale and they might go on sale later again as well:

Perfect Dark: Played the original n64 version and loved it but i have no plans go go online with it. Is single player worth 10$.

Puzzle quest 2: Played the heck out of the first but lots of sources say that this game is a step backwards and not as good as the first and much easier as well. Not to mention its also 15$.

Finally, I can just wait and hope for a sale. Anyone think either game is worth full price?

Haven't played the PD port, and it's been a LONG time since I played the original version, so no opinion on that one. As for PQ2, stay away. I loved the original, put far more time into than I'm comfortable admitting, across multiple platforms. As for the sequel, it's not just a "step backwards", it's more like a football field backwards. And yea, it's not braindead easy, but it's not too far off.

If you're looking for a fantasy puzzler, might I recommend Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes instead? It's a great game.

I can't say anything about PQ as I've never played it but as far as PD goes, I downloaded it with excitement and found that it felt very dated.

Toronto Maple Leafs fan for life. Favourite game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

perfect dark is pretty fun it has improved graphics and is a solid 60 fps now I was surprised at how well the game played for how old it is

No XBLA game is worth full price, IMHO. Too much stuff goes on sale for me to think otherwise.

Not to mention that stupid feeling you get when you buy it full price only to see it on sell not to long afterwards.

I was only able to nab 10$ from gamestop and i grabbed bubble bobble neo. I dont really think its worth $10 but for free its pretty damn good.

this for PQ2. the first one was GREAT and one of my favorite puzzle games ever, so when 2 came out i was really excited. it was one of my biggest gaming disappointments. =(
