Is it just the sleeve that's extra? If so, as nice as it is, I don't see £5 of value

The only difference is a (admittedly nice-looking) cardboard sleeve; otherwise, the two versions are identical.

I think so mate, that's all I can find on it rats extra. 365games.co.uk/m/p…ame

Says on link above at simply games in description. Not worth it in my opinion.

Whilst I agree with you about the sleeve Rob, I just don't see it as being worth £5 (Maybe if it was a steelbook)

I don't think that we disagree there either. I was fortunate to get the launch edition when it was also this price, but wouldn't have paid another £5 for it.

Excellent price, but I bought so much over Xmas I need to leave it...

Well, more accurately, I need to leave it because I have no money, having bought so many games over Xmas ;_;

I got the launch edition at this price from the previously posted deal. Superb game.

See that's what I don't get. To me this looks no better then No Mans Sky, this looks very unusual. Each to their own I guess but No Mans Sky gets a lot of hate

Just an incredible experience, perfect companion to ICO and SotC and an amazing game to have played at Christmas

In what ways do you see the two games as similar? They're very different from each other.

​Dont get the connection... completely different games promising completely different things. Are you referring to hype? hype for this was mostly just people wanting to see it out, it had been so long, rather than expecting the world/s from it.

I didn't say it's looks similar. I just said it looks no better than No Mans Sky which got crushed but this has massive hype but yet doesn't look that great in my opinion since I was going to get it.

Definitely worth a play through - but Trico at times did my head when trying to control him - have to be very patient at times!!

Okay, but what are you basing your assessment of the game's quality on?

This is like ICO/Shadow Of The Colossus all rolled into one. Great game.

Just youtube videos if watched, looks very slow paced, very unusual. Like I said, each time their own, I haven't loaded it nor No Mans Sky but No Mans Sky looks better in my opinion but with the hype this got it can't be too shabby?

Hahah I know dude but that's just my opinion. I post deals for people to benefit from, but after watching a handful of videos I don't get how this is so loved.

Slow paced shouldn't be seen as the equivalent of poor quality. I wouldn't particular disagree with it being slow-paced, but have a read through some reviews to get some idea of the game's content.

Well this dropped quickly. I will wait for it to drop a bit more.

Well simply put, No Man's Sky 'bombed' because Sean Murray let his tongue slip a few too many times. He had ideas in his head which he quite vocally made appear were in the game that simply wasn't. I don't think NMS is necessarily a bad game, it's just not the game people expected and this is why it's received the backlash it has. If Murray had kept his mouth shut and just gone with what was actually present then £34.99 deals for NMS would be going hot. Simply consumer backlash mate, that is all.

As for TLG, well I haven't played it. But it's been highly anticipated since E3 2009, and to be honest, it's done well to get where it is today. If a studio can produce an idea in 2009 and manage to get people talking about that same game in 2017 AND loving it, then that alone speaks volumes for TLG.

Personally, in terms of hype and let downs. I'm waiting for Half Life 3 (_;)

grainger games are exchanging for £27 credit so good deal. i found the game very slow and annoying camera angles

You can't ever judge a game by videos, they don't represent the experience of playing it at all... Although they are useful to watch before buying.

Again, slow paced does not mean bad. I had no expectations for this game but really enjoyed it... Apart from the stupid dog not always cooperating which got frustrating at times (not that many times).

Whoops wish i could erase this bought to many games lately that are wrapped still haha

Bought this last time and started last night. Looks interesting but started giving me motion sickness! Will try again though...

I'm waiting for 'Agent' but Rockstar too busy counting their GTA online money to care about that game. Probably cancelled now me thinks.

You keep saying unusual as though that's a bad thing.

I was disappointed with this game, it was too slow paced and Trico was so frustrating at times i started to lose concern interest in him (although at one point when he was under attack i was more emotionally concerned and panicked than i have been in any other game i have played)

Paid £25 sold to CEX for £32 so can't complain, just having played Shadow of the Colossus last year for the first time and finding it one of the best games i have ever played it would of been nice if this would of been SOTC2 instead.

huge disappointment
