dealsalice: madness returns on steam for $4.99 + free…

Voted up because I'd rather buy from Steam than Gamestop.

@rsmoker: Well I'd rather buy it from GAMESTOP, jerk! (Just filling in the missing rage that must have accompanied the down vote of my harmless statement of opinion.)

Never played this game, is it any fun?

Yeah, it's fun. It also has awesome graphics. Definitely plays 'on rails' - i.e. you can't just wander around much. If you played and liked the original, you'll probably like this one too. Well worth way more than $5.

It's a pretty good game, especially at the $4.99 price.

It's a VERY dark game, as in not your typical happy Alice in Wonderland (the Mature rating kind of hints at that). There a bunch of puzzles and unlockables (weapons, dresses) that have different effects. Some of the characters in the game are really funny, while others are just flat out bizarre, but it all adds to the feeling of the game.

If you like action games with some puzzles thrown into it, you'd enjoy this. It's somewhat like the game Bastion, just not NEARLY as beautiful as that game. No "Morgan Freeman sounding" narrator either.

is "free shipping" some kind of joke? it's steam...which means it's a download, not a physical CD...so I sure as hell hope it's "free shipping".

the day Steam starts charging me shipping for downloading games...man, that will not be cool.

Came up as $19.99 for me. The other deal still works though.
