    If this game had been available on AT&T from day one I might have purchased it. The initial month on Verizon has killed most of the interest I had in the game. At this point I'd need to play a trial version to convince me to buy it.

    So, for those who've bought the game, is it worth it? The controls seem to be a big point of contention, which is a concern. Am I better off going with the Windows 8 version?
    I've played about 10 missions. Touchscreen controls are definitely touchy (lawl), but there is a generous aim-assist of about 20 to 30 degrees.

    Definitely not worth buying! I've been a Halo fan since the first game dropped with the original Xbox, and I hate the game! Not worth $6.99. You also have to pay real money to access certain weapons and armor upgrades, and they're only available for that one level! Then you have to purchase them again if you want to use them again! Controls are horrific as well. Sound stutters, game freezes randomly, etc. I'm not the only one who's had these problems either, judging from reviews. You're better off getting Batman or Nova 3 for that price.

    Batman runs like crap (LOTS of stuttering), and N.O.V.A.'s controls are an absolute nightmare.

    Use Bing Rewards, and you can get the game for free after a while. I didn't pay for it because I used Bing Rewards for Windows Phone Store gift cards myself. Also, there was a workaround to get the game on AT&T devices within HOURS of release. I got it on my AT&T Lumia 920 the day of its release. As for the quality of the game, it's a much-upgraded version of Gun Bros. The controls aren't perfect, but the sticks work really well, in my opinion. I've only done 3 missions because I am completing other games right now, but I'd say that the game is worth $7 if that's what they charge for Batman, Spider-Man, Modern Combat, and N.O.V.A. (the superhero games have a lot of stuttering issues and the FPS games have wretched controls).

    FYI, the update is now available on both Windows Phone and Windows 8. Looks like they learned from what happened last time, and only promised tomorrow, even though it's ready a little early.

    Same, Windows phone 8 version is ok but windows 8 shows no progress. It looks like it's not loading the data from the cloud as before both devices would share progress, medals, etc.

    I've had some issues before but on a later try the PC version synced up with my Surface RT version (RT version being how I mostly play), so it might be that it resyncs at a later time again.

    Looks like progress didn't update on my 920 as well after the update.

    Just got it for my 521, been saving up bing points just for this. I needed just a little over 3.5 gig of free space to install only had to removed 2 games that I was not playing.

    Have not actually started playing it but going to later today.
