It's $10 at Best Buy until noon tomorrow.  Worth getting up for?

I would buy it for $10, but I sure as hell won't be out shopping tomorrow.

The map packs are now free on Live, so that's a plus.

Yes.  It really seems to be a love/hate game.  But I loved it.  I'm not sure how many people play still play online.  It really shines in multiplayer.    Definately worth $10 IMHO.

1000 times yes.  I think for that price anyone would be crazy to not pick it up.  No, it was not worth full price but just about any 360 is worth that price.  Hell, that is just a frogs hair over rental fee pricing. 

Get it.  If I didn't already have it I would definitely nab it.  Any others at that price?

I couldn't pick it up -- didn't get to BB in time.  However, if anyone wants to sell me their copy for $10...

I did manage to pick it up during the BB sale although I hadn't planned on it. I was rushing around trying to get everything when a guy looked at me and said "Are you looking for The Outfit?!" with a copy in his hand. I said "Yup, and took it....remembering that is was $10 and probably worth close to that in trade if I didn't like it".

So, I finally had a chance to give it a shot....and I think it is a really good game. I can see how the fun nature of it might not resonate with some people but it hardly feels last gen to me the way everything explodes and/or reacts to the environment. In fact, I had a big smile in the first mission as I ran over trees, enemies, sandbags and other items in the tank. And when engaged in a long firefight I used the tank to destroy the buildings that housed them. I really like the fully destructible environment. Sure, the "plane drop" of purchased items in unrealistically instant- the game it fun. This part reminded me of the PC version of "Battlezone" (which was not based on the video game, but rather was a first person RTS).

I only played the first mission, but I will definitely be playing some more tonight. Actually, I started the second mission- but I ended up using my flamethrower on even my own people because of how interesting the effect was.

Definitely worth $10. It would be a great $20 Platinum Hits title.

I also grabbed it at Best Buy on Black Friday and am definitely enjoying it thus far.  It doesn't look like there are a lot of multiplayer games out there but maybe with the sale there will be for a bit going forward.  The best bonus of all is that you can go through the full story mode in co-op which is just great!

I got it at $29 and have no regrets.  Not worth a penny more, but still a blast to play every now and then.  A keeper in my book.
