After reading the reviews, and not entirely loving the demo, I've been trying to find the game used on ebay for $10 or under, or new for $15-20- people are selling it Used for $30 ("missing the manual").
Am I crazy for expecting this to be cheaper by now? I feel like, with the NES Castlevanias (or, 1 & 3, rather), the replayability comes from revisiting a great action-platformer (like how I don't get bored going through old Mario or Mega Man games). I can't imagine that there are plenty of people going back to God of War 1, and the like, right? Or are they?
I believe the game itself is about 11 hours long to 100%. I personally got bored with the game around 5 hours in, when you first get your character swap, and you obtain some abilities.
I guess it's pretty short, and upon beating the game, you unlock a harder difficulty, but I can't say there's much incentive to coming back to the game and replaying it. --- Intel i5-3470 || Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7950 || 8GB GDDR3
