Folks, this is not about the game but how much Amazon fools their customers. The game was ordered during boxing week when it was on sale. A week later folks here apparently can't obtain the item, yet it seems to be available for almost full price ? Judge yourself and happy shopping ... Happy New Year.

Update March 2010
So over a year later Santa Claus dropped this for me. Or better, I waited until a good sale opportunity came along. Yes, I can be patient. The game is awesome, what else to say. I think I put in a good 60 hours and went well beyond the main story line, finishing every quest and DLC. Although it becomes hard to stay motivated once the main quest has been completed, this game has so much to offer. From basic Sims type simulation, over creating bonds for life (if necessary polygamy in never seen proportions) to acquiring and managing properties and real estate (owning every building and shop on the map) to action adventures taking down every enemy that crosses you path and levelling up all skills to its maximum this game keeps you occupied and is never boring for a single second. The optics are good, although could be better on the new-gen platform, especially since it is only built for a single one, voice acting is acceptable. This is a big seller for a reason, can't wait for the 3rd instalment.
