Good game, but I already bought, oh well guess I'll have to call customer support, which is never fun. Any guesses on how many reps you have to talk to before you get one that even knows what you're talking about.

I'm surprised you guys didn't like it.  It's very well done.

I also bought it already, so I guess I'll have to put on my sorting hat.

I wasn't that impressed with the gameplay in the demo (graphics were great though) but I'm cool with getting it for free. I do think they should go with a new release though so it doesn't screw people who already bought the game.

I'd been considering this one but didn't want to pull the $10 trigger since I have a bunch of Christmas games. But I'll definitely take it for free.

Agreed. Didn't like the demo at all.

Of course, I won't have access to my 360 during those 3 days they're offering it, so I won't be getting this for free anyway.

You won't have access due to your 360 dying so you can't get your free game due to live dying?   icon_eek

I think this is the first I've heard of Undertow.  What sort of game is it, and what is it that people like or dislike about it?

Hell, not that I really liked Undertow, and I'd really rather have something else, but what's worse is that since they're only offering it those days, I might not have my Xbox back from repair by then due to their shipping screwup adding an additional week to my repair time.  That's fairly annoying.

i thought it would be a sub side scrolling shooter ala metal slug. 

it's actually more like battlefield 1942 with bases to capture and defend and spawn points.

after nearly a month of unreliable Live service messing up my game time, my launch 360 died tonight...about to make the call for a coffin right now.  i wonder if i can talk them into giving me my free copy of Undertow once i get my console back...definitely won't be able to download it during the free period next week...

Shouldn't they get Live good and properly fixed before establishing a less than 1 week window when we are required to download this free game? What if Live has problems during the window? Will we get another free game to compensate us for Live being down during the window we had to get the free game to compensate us for Live being down? (yes, I have been drinking....)

I was totally unimpressed with the demo.  I wish it would have been Omega Five if anything.  I love the demo of that, but haven't bought it yet.

Meh.  Why can't they just give us the equivalent points or a free month of Gold Live?

I do know that you will be able to call MS and get some equivelant if you already have it or you have an active service repair (from comments on Kotaku IIRC). You need to call though.

They should have just given all active accounts 800 points, just like GWB. slywink

No, I'm out of town right now and won't be back to download it until after the free period ends.

Because if they do that then they have to 'reward' everybody who has an active Live account. This way they only 'reward' those who know about the promotion (there's no way in hell it'll be advertised in the ads we all see, I guarantee you that) and who actively use their Live accounts online.
