Mafia II for $12.50

It's not that surprising. I don't think it sold that well to begin with.

From what I hear it's not a bad game, just not great.

The 75% off all Half Life games (85% if you own Left 4 Dead 1/2, which is weird), is definitely the deal here.

$5.99 for the entire Half Life series (1, expansions, 2, EP1 and EP2), with HL: Deathmatch and Team Fortress Classic thrown in, that's a must have.

God NO! Don't do it! I got it for 23 bucks on a EA double dip (sale + coupon) and its CRAP. Well actually its an OK game, but way, way, WAY to short and feels (and plays) more like Modern Warfail 2 than a Dice game. With dumb ass AI and a stoooopid ending. Really felt like they set it up for a second part to be released later on. PLUS the weapons are screwed up. You can literally play the game with a shotgun and a pistol and have close range (shotgun), medium range (dealers choice) AND long range (pistol) covered! You literally can snipe and headshot peeps with a handgun....which is about the only (lame ass) thing DICE must have carried over.

I'm guessing the multiplayer is just as bad?

I actually liked the game. It has a short story BUT a very GOOD story. I just found it A) short and B) linear.
It takes awhile to get used to the controls (the cars ALL feel like they are on 'ice'...even the summer time section) but it is enjoyable (especially the golden oldies on the radio...brings back memories :) ). I really hated that fact that it wasnt a sandbox enviro. You really had to follow the story line, and while you COULD do some minor things like steal cars and stores...there really is no reason to do it. Its a A -> B -> C game. PLUS the cops are stupid. Red lights...no problem wave to them as blow threw a dozen of em they do NOT care. Go over the speed limit == problem...BUT out run them for a couple seconds and the prob goes away....even if you have just plowed over a dozen peeps! Hell pop a dozen cops and all you need do is change your car (steal another one or just change the plates) and change your cloths and presto you are no longer a wanted man! Other than that it was VERY enjoyable. :)
