2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive DLC, May 31, 2012
This review is from: Crysis 2 - Maximum Edition [Download] (Software Download)
I don't know about you, but I'm not up for paying $20 for another few maps and a new weapon! Amazon sent me a coupon for $20 off, because I purchased Crysis 2 from them. Still, it's a ridiculously overpriced product.

I have to agree here. I got the coupon as well... The thing that really bothers me is that this was on sale the day it released on Origin for $20 I belive. So that means even if I do use the Amazon coupon I am still out the entire amount I paid for the first copy, its not like I am going to play that game and this one. BTW, I bought it only a month ago and haven't even got around to playing it yet! Another thing that really gets me upset, correct me if I am wrong, but this release was totally unannounced! Amazon, I want a full refund of the game I purchased, disable my key code, and then I will use the coupon to buy this copy. But it still will be priced a little high for my taste. FYI - this is in no means a review of the product itself, just my opinion on the release of the product and how it was handled.

Thanks for the comment. Your input potentially saved me $20.

I plan to wait until this game is at least 50% off and therefore free with my coupon.

I pay $5 for the game, In January (Promotional days), I will not pay $20 for some maps and one weapon. Actually I don´t play multi-player, so whats the deal?

The coupon has to be used within a few weeks, unfortunately

So... You DIDN'T buy this edition, but you thought you'd go ahead and rate it anyway?

It's people like you that just trash the whole ratings system...

As a matter of fact he did buy the original game, and thus in position to judge its New Price / Content added and saying that it's way overpriced. I don't see where the problem is...
I bought the original game myself, and seeing the price of this edition at 40$ 18 months later is at best laughable, which means that 75% of the price is for the couple of multiplayer maps added, since the orignal crysis 2 could be found at 10$.

I agree, he is in the perfect position to rate this game. I just got the coupon as well, I haven't had a chance to play it yet but $20 for some minor DLC for a game I've already purchased seems a lot on the high side. I'd essentially be paying 20 bucks for a map pack and gun. It's not worth the 'upgrade' I guess. I understand how someone wouldn't want him to rate something he didn't purchase, but if someone bought a pull up bar, then one came out later with straps, I'd say that they are still well qualified to rate the pull up bar and point out whether paying double just for straps is worth it.

I also just saw the coupon from amazon in my inbox. I think I paid $7 something for Crysis 2 a few weeks ago. I'll wait till Crysis 3 hits and they release a trilogy pack with all this stuff. $39.99? for some maps? Thanks to the OP for saving us all $19.99.
