That's the second time in a row that Mirror's Edge has dropped to that price and only for US, as far as I'm aware us UK gamers have not seen a single price drop on this since it's release, is this company deliberately snubbing the EU with this particular game?...I'd pay full price if it wasn't so short, as it is $0.99/0.59p seems just about right, so I'll continue hoping for a sale for UK and the rest of the world.

I've had the Here and Now version for a long time. The prices for the properties are much higher than the original Monopoly, so you can be kicking some serious butt, but then totally get destroyed by one or two unfortunate rolls of the dice. I used to think that the computer AI was a scam. You always seem to land on their big money properties, but they never land on yours. When they have 2 properties and need the third, they seem to always roll the perfect dice to land on the 3rd. They trade any properties amongst themselves, but are picky when you try to trade with them. They will always take cash in excess of what they paid for a property though, so you can usually buy anything you want from them. Having said all that... I beat the little bastards all the time. At $.99, it's a decent game. I wouldn't pay more though...

Wasn't there loads of reviews on the store and on websites about how the AI genuinely did fix the game in favour of itself? Or am I thinking of a different version of Monopoly on the store?

Yeah EA never see to include the UK I've lost count of how many times I've seen their apps on sale then when I look the UK isn't included I think I've seen need for speed shift on sale at least 6 times for the US on appshopper and not once for the UK so far. Mind you I wouldn't buy it anyway now they have added adverts to it.

Their basicly trying to milk us when we already pay more anyway I know that's probably down to tax but even so it's salt in the wound.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out
