    With my Game points I manged to pick mine up for 3.50!

    So is the PS2 version any good ?

    Assume its just the same with slighly fuzzy textures ?

    And clonky loading times, apparently.

    I've picked up a copy too, though. :-)

    Frame rate issues too. I tried it, wasn't my cuppa which surprised me; I'm a sucker for a good platformer usually.

    Oh Well.

    As long as the gameplay is intact I'm not worried...

    ...and for 3.50 I hardly feel ripped off.

    Got the pc version and it was sort of ok. Hugely over-rated imho. I usually love platform type games like this but it just didn't grab me. And it's nowhere near as funny as it seems to think it is.

    They usually go for about 8 on eBay. :-)

    Stick with it, I thought it wa superb. Admittedly some of the levels are better than others and the humour can grate at times. But the Milkman Conspiracy level is one of the best designed platform levels I've ever seen.

    got the Xbox version a while ago and it was brilliant. Took a few hours to really get in to it, but the story and characters are funny, and the gameplay is great fun. I'm glad i bought it, and it's definitley worth a fiver.

    I didn't think the platforming was particularly accomplished, nor did I find the "humour" at all funny. Factor in the appalling tearing of the PS2 version and I'd say you paid about 4.97 too much. Play a Sly Raccoon game instead.

    Wow. Must suck !

    Heh. Well, they'd have to pay me to play it again. Then again, it has been claimed that I'm dead inside, so you might want to disregard my opinion.

    Still play Sly Raccoon though, dammit.

    Hate to be say, but I actually had to sell my PS2 version and go and get the PC one, as the shitness of the analogue stick actually made a couple of bits very early on literally unplayable.
