Bargain Gaming – Max Payne 3 | 91.8 The Fan Review

91.8 The Fan writes:

Oh god, where do I even start with this one. Max Payne 3 is a AAA title published by top tier game developer Rockstar Games, the developers of such beloved games as Grand Theft Auto (pick one) and Red Dead Redemption. The game has been critically praised across the board, with an average Metacritic score of 86% across the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC systems. It has been praised on almost every facet of its design, and managed to sell over three million copies in its first week alone. So, based on this information it seems like this game is a solid title, potentially even a contender for some reviewer’s game of the year placement. But does it actually live up to the hype? (Max Payne 3 , PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -

91.8 . . .

I find some of these review scores to be ridiculous. Please explain to me the difference between a 91.8 and a 92. Or a 92 and a 93 for that matter.

Review scores in themselves are more or less meaningless. All they do is take away from what is actually important, the review itself.

I can't tell if you're joking or not, so here's 10 hours of a guy eating fried chicken and dancing.

91.8? This review is BULLCRAP; the game deserves at least a 91.9, if not 92.1!

I'll agree that I don't see many scores are meaningful, but 91.8 is the title of the website. It's a radio station for anime and geekdom titled 91.8 The Fan. So I think you might not be understanding the point of the numbers.

Also, the writer, Bargain Gamer kinda hated the game so a 91.8 or 92 wouldn't even make much sense considering all the negative points he brought up.

Ah. I see.

That's what I get for not reading the article.

I just saw the headline, and took it as I did. Felt I need to get on a mini rant regarding my hate for such review scores.

That number at the top is definitely not the rating. This guy just whines through the entire "review" about how much he hates it. He even complains about the visual effects in the cut scenes and says he's disgusted that this game was financially successful. The author sounds like he's as miserable as Max.

Oh, well. To each his own I guess. I had a great time in this game. It was the video game equivalent of a fun summer blockbuster action movie, and it's one of the best looking games I've seen so far.

Had MSAA and transparency AA up a bit too high on a couple of these. LOL. Pushing the card pretty hard.
