ruinous

Here is my best explanation:

'exorbitant' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'game in ohio america' is the wordplay.
'game' becomes 'ru' (rugby union).
'ohio' becomes 'o'.
'america' becomes 'us' (abbreviation for the United States).
'ru'+'in'+'o'+'us'='RUINOUS'

'is' is the link.
