I've bought the game and finished it twice now, so far this year it is my GOTY. I love it to death, the environment, the music and that eerie feeling you always get when playing it. This leads me to a question; Why isn't anybody buying it? So far it has only sold just under 150 thousand copies in two weeks of release. Do people not like it or something?

Because its a new IP and it wasn't very well marketed at all. Not to mention some very average reviews. Also releasing games close to the well established Splinter Cell is also tough, people are probably gonna hang on to their money and get Conviction instead.

Yeah as I said in the first post it's a really good game, tell your friends to buy it so we can get a sequel and/or DLC Smile

I'm going to get it soon because it's made by 4A Games which was founded by people who split off from GSC Game World a year before the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. Although this could mean it's just a bad imitation in my opinion but i'll have to wait and see.

Cause the average person doesn't know about it. There was like 1 advertisement on XBL, but nothing else, only people who really know of it are the web denizens.

That's what I'm doing. The demo sold me on Splinter Cell, but I'll probably rent Metro 2033 down the line.

If you are comparing us to PS3 fanboys and hyping a game, then no, we did not even get close to the levels that they hype.
All the people who actually hyped the game bought it and those who didn't hype it didn't buy it.

But the entire PS3 fanboy base will hype a game and only half of them will end up buying it.

Yes its a very good game, i have also beat it but the reviews and marketing just weren't there. The game not having a multiplayer for the online gamers hurt it also but i think i after beating it i would give it about an 8.5 out of 10.
