I mean how does a game with such good reviews go from $60 bucks to 35 in two weeks? Two Worlds didn't drop off that fast and it was garbage. Whats the point on paying 60 bucks for a game when 2 weeks later you can have the game half off. Way to reward the loyal fans by making them pay the most. What a joke move.

Yeah, I certainly feel cheated but oh well this happens sometimes and you just have to deal with it.

Two Worlds didn't drop off precisely because it's garbage. The devs are hoping to salvage as much as they can from that train wreck of a game.

Portal 2 on the other hand is selling well enough that Valve can afford to give a little.

Because Amazon is having a sale/promotion?
Seriously, is it that hard to figure out? The game still costs 50 on Steam.

Its only 40 bucks at gamestop too. I still haven't bought the game, I just thought it was funny it dropped in price so fast and with such amazing reviews. WIsh more games would do this though, I can wait an extra week and a half to play a game if it is going to be discounted as much as 50%. I would be able to stop reserving games as well, whats the point of a reservation to pay full price when a price drop is right around the corner.

The game was alittle short so theyre afraid of used game sales so by lowering the price they can beat the market. worked with mortal kombat.

It's on sale everywhere, because it's not selling as well as expected. That is what you do to goose sales, put your product on sale.

Cheated, No! I got the 20 dollar bonus for pre-ordering, so that puts me there at 34.99. The game was also lowered to 54.99 before release. It was worth every penny! I had a blast with story and multiplayer! I am keeping my copy for the free DLC coming this summer.

Thats how the market works, its supply and demand and it has nothing to do with the reviews or you feeling cheated. If not enought people buy the game the price will come down. And you know what, I'm pretty sure the game publisher/developer is feeling cheated too. They are losing out when the value of the game drops that quick.
At the end of the day, no one wins with a lower price except the people who did not buy the game.

I bought the game as soon as it was released for $35 from Amazon. Steam still had it at $50 at that point, and they still have it at $50 now. That said, the game is absurdly cheap, and I feel a little cheated just because I thought I was taking advantage of a sale; not buying it at the regular price.

The game is brilliant, though. I gave it a 5/5 in my review on both Amazon and my own site.

Pre-ordering didn't really get you anything, though. Steam should give the pre-order folks an extra bonus, like a free, exclusive DLC the rest of us can't even buy. It could be something simple, though, like a free copy of Portal 2: The Final Hours.

Two Worlds II isn't even functional. Once you get past a certain point in the game, the game gets sluggish and unresponsive. It also blurs way too much!
