OXCGN’s Sound Shapes PSN Review

OXCGN:

"The great tragedy of Sound Shapes is that the very concepts which make it worth a look ultimately prevent it from ever achieving a deep measure of success.

Queasy Games‘ latest is hamstrung by its own underpinnings, which wed a clever, music-based level creation tool to a middling, inconsistent platformer.

Sound Shapes is inspired, but its levels are more fun to create than they are to play." (PS3, Sound Shapes) 6/10

This actually looks kind of interesting.. almost LBP-esque.

Interestingly, this is a fair bit lower than most of the other scores that it's been receiving.

I have to wonder if things have gotten so desperate for the Vita that folks'll put any decent game on a pedestal and call it a system-seller.

So... Most sites praise it and are rating it quite highly, and then, one site, rates it low, and you automatically assume the game is below average and all the sites praising it are just looking for a system seller title?

Are you insane, or just a blatant troll?

Well, I've played the game, too :P

I think it's a decent game, personally, but not nearly on the level of some of the scores that it's received.

And as an aside, I don't think that a 6/10 is a "low" score. And a few sites have given it a 7/10, so it's not like this is out of left field.

These days, people look at a 6 as a DO NOT BUY. Hell, even a 7 is a pass now.

6 isn't good, though. It's just above average. "Decent," as you said, but not all that good.

And honestly, it doesn't make sense to come to your original conclusion, especially given the wealth of "Vita/Sony is Doomed" articles around here recently.

6/10? Why is there always some sites that go totally against the grain? 7.5 I would accept, but baring in mind that this game is regularly getting 8+/10, it just doesn't make sense.

Probably the lowest score you'll see for this game. I'm puzzled myself.

this must be a pro-MS website... this game is phenomenal.

Not everyone is going to see a game the same; that doesn't suddenly make them against a whole system. Some people want to make everything about fanboy wars and see conspiracy everywhere.

This game doesn't seem that amazing to me either, yet I own systems from all the big 3.

Looking at the most recent PlayStation exclusive review scores on the site:

Dyad 8/10
Closure 7.5/10
Starhawk 9/10

Seems just fine.
