While I don't agree with a lot of decisions the creators made, this game is definitely worth $10 bucks. I spent $30 + $10 DLC a few months ago. I'd say I got my money's worth (I pretty much owe this fact to Sazar).

Game doesn't really have a ton of replayability(imo), and certainly nowhere near the replayability of a game the caliber of Diablo 2. However, the game is pretty fun the first go through.

Then again, Tygerwoody would have sex with Diablo 2 if it were a living thing. That includes it being a man...

This is nuts. I've put over 50 hours into it and never touched co-op. The DLC's, the different classes, the multiple playthroughs giving you reason to continue to level-up...it probably has some of the best replayability of any modern game.

I played with Tyger a couple of times. All he did was whine about it outside of shooting stuff.

He also played Alien Swarm with me and a few steam friends and just went off and did his own thing. His definition of "fun" and "co-operative" game-play is not quite what I would use as a standard. He plays L4D2, I'll give him that. Outside of that, I would be wary to use Tyger's opinions on game-play, or anything, to mean much

I thought he had more fun than I guess he really did

In co-op, the game is fun, especially when you are looking to take down a big boss or something else. The more players that are on, the stronger the enemy becomes and the better the loot.

I just bought the DLC set. Shame about the DRM on at least one of em but at that price its 'throw-awayable' if it comes unstuck.

Yep. Same reason Crackdown 2 is so much fun despite it's shortcomings in single player.
