Its pretty good for a game based on a movie (most games based on movies suck). Its scary the first time you play it. Gets a little predictable later on and it plays a little console-ish for my liking. Its a good game, but not an unmissable one. You may want to wait a few months for it to be on sale for 20 bucks at your local EB.

yeah, the game was fun. I especially liked the part when the guy said... "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself" and he..... well, you'll have to find out for yourself. It is cool, I like that type of stuff.

Once it gets there though, its surely worth it, pretty good game especially for that price.

I dunno... I certainly wasn't too impressed.

It looked nice enough and it played nice enough (although it was DEFINITELY a console game), but the story didn't grip me at all, and it was kind've 'play, play, play, play, finish, is that it?'

I took it back. Although it was a fun day while I was playing it, I knew I wouldn't want to play it again any time soon.

How about a rating? say... 60%? 65% maybe?

And YES, I am a fan of the film

Check out http://www.gogamer.com for really good prices. I was able to pick up Morrowind for only $34 when it was on "sale" everywhere else for $55. They have all games there. Although their console game prices arent as good as their PC game prices.
