World War Z -> $0.99



I am tempted, despite it being only a dollar price drop. (Though it IS only five bucks to begin with )

Ain't biting. I've got enough games to play already, and this didnt impress me at all.

Contrary to the negativity, i like the game a lot.

Optional IAPs, full story, good visuals, good controls, and nice exploration and puzzle elements. Combat is quite unique that everytime there's an encounter, it becomes an on-rails shooter, and good on-rails shooting sequence they are usually.

Unfortunately, the TA community generally thinks that on-rails is automatic fail, save a few iconic titles, but then those still get hate.

For someone who hasnt played the game, you're a good judge of things. O_o

Eh, chicken and the egg. If devs didn't drop prices and go free all the time, few people would wait for everything to go on sale/free. Plus, there's piracy, and just cultural developments that all feed into freemium. I really don't think it's fair to blame cheap people entirely, especially when they've been trained by the way devs tend to price/value their games.

Oh if you'd read other things I've written previously you would see I agree. Its a two way street and wouldn't argue.

But I don't want to have to type a complete disclaimer each time, just deal with what's currently apparent.
