The score doesn't fit the review. Actually listen to what they say. It seems like it would be no big deal if one chose miss out on this one.

crxss1368d ago (Edited 1368d ago )

looks like they took down the page... then again it's 3:15 am pst, hopefully it'll get fixed soon. perhaps they're changing the score! duhduhduh....

Digitaldude1368d ago

I agree, I got the vibe that its a great action game. Has some tense moments that are probably scarier than most games out today(which isn't hard at all) but isn't very old school Resident evily.
Looks fun though, I enjoyed the demo enough to warrant a purchase.

Bimkoblerutso1368d ago

I...kinda got that impression as well. Not that I think the game is incapable of being good, but the ENTIRE video review was stuff that they disliked about the game.

They said:
- the gameplay was "antiquated,"
- the writing "wasn't particularly good,"
- the graphics were "showing their age"
- the non-shooting segments "weren't handled well"
- the item management is "a dinosaur"

I mean, forgive me for being a little suspicious, but 8.8 is a score you give to a game that had a couple of minor problems here or there...

ConstipatedGorilla1368d ago

Judging from the review, it looks to be worth a play-through to me personally. Maybe not a 10, but it should be a good time.

SilentNegotiator1368d ago

No surprise that GT would give a highscore to some PEWPEWPEW even if it's full of issues.

Blacklash931368d ago (Edited 1368d ago )

GT does that sometimes, usually with big games. Lots of negatigve comments about many aspects of a game throughout a review then BAM, a score around 9. They've been like this for the Assassin's Creed games, for instance.

As much I'd rather not believe it, they seem like they're being paid off for a high score or they're too afraid of a backlash for giving a highly anticipated AAA game a low score.

knowyourstuff1368d ago

I can't believe the mixed reviews for this game. Some reviewers giving 9's and 8's, other troll sites I don't trust like Destructoid and Gamespot giving it 3 and 4.5 out of 10. Then there's the pseudo intellectual sites like Eurogamer where they have the journalistic integrity of your usual rag tabloid trash magazine. I really don't know what to believe now - that's how objective gaming press is.

schlanz1367d ago

Uh.. were we listening to the same review?

"Yet measured against its contemporaries, it remains near the top of its class... deserves to be played by any fan of the action genre."

jeseth1367d ago

The scores for this game are all over the place. Unless user reviews come back with good feedback I'll wait 'til Amazon has it for cheap.

Haven't seen a game with reviews this scattered in a while

Goog score.. Yeah! big Resident Evil advertising on their site...

Biohazard88601368d ago

they got payed off by capcom.

geddesmond1367d ago

I'm honestly really glad to see reviewers eat this game up. I called it weeks ago. After all the crap Capcom pulled this is all they deserve. Now look at them, there biggest franchises is on the brink of destruction. All thats left to confirm is sales number and given know body I know is getting it and they all got RE5 I expect this game to sell less than a mil on both platforms first week combined.

DarkHeroZX1367d ago

The reviews are split on this game, sofar the metascore looks to sit around 72.

Nemesis45671367d ago

@Knowyourstuff

Gamestop trolls on Resident evil? They gave Resident evil 4 a 9.6 and resident evil 5 an 8.5

its a good game but not everyone is going to like it.
i myself enjoy it but i have some problems with it and understand the people who and will hate it.
but dont let the demo cloud your decision and dont be so closed minded.
the mercenary mode is decent and there isn't anything new in it.
there isn't any sense of exploration and the skill system suck my.....it just sucks.
depending on people the game will be from 7.5 to 9, not everyone is going to like but i think its a great game but i hope capcom listen to there fans next time.
keep the co-op in extra mode like lost in nightmare or something or the mercenary.
focus on 1 character.
less scripted moment.
wild open stages and more exploration
have most of the enemies use melee and keep the one with guns limited.
have more meaningful QTE like from resident evil 4,god hand,bayonetta.
meaningful friendly A.I that are not scapegoat.
real horror.
improved net-code.
bring weapon shop and management back{resident evil 4}

Chitown712911368d ago

Im sorry this has nothing to do with your comment, but I wish Gametrailers would go back to their old website..........this new one sucks in comparison

iMaim1368d ago

where'd the video go?
was it removed? i thought the embargo was lifted.

banjadude1368d ago

If you go to the website, and press the download button, a quicktime window will show up instead, and you can watch it then.

That's how I watched it, before the embargo was on.

abzdine1368d ago (Edited 1368d ago )

GT gives 8.8 to all games they review.
all types of journalism are corrupt, i tried the demo and it's not worth more than 1/10..

Capcom is a major publisher in Japan and websites like GT live with exclusivity reveals and things like that from their partners and Capcom is one of them.
If they review this game in an objective way they will probably break the deal.

This game is broken gameplay is retarded zombies with guns lmao.. where is the horror part ?

ConstipatedGorilla1368d ago

Thank god you don't review games professionally. I'd avoid whatever site you worked for like the plague.

abzdine1368d ago (Edited 1368d ago )

a shitty game deserve shitty review scores, regardless of its name. It's as simple as this.

You know what, from now i can assure you GT will give around 9 to the next RE, because they give scores just by looking at the game's name.

ConstipatedGorilla1367d ago

"This game is broken gameplay is retarded zombies with guns lmao"

Now imagine a statement like that in an IGN or Gamespot review. That site would lose a little credibility, wouldn't it?

csreynolds1367d ago

You can't go around saying all types of journalism are corrupt. Tarring everyone with the same brush makes you a moron.

That said, I wouldn't have given RE6 an 8.8 either. Personally, I feel the series has lost its way...

Bloodraid1367d ago

I cannot comprehend why or how people take game reviews as seriously as they do. It's nothing more than an individual, or group of individuals who assign a number to a game based on how enjoyable they found it.

Even if they're being paid to give games a good score, how does it affect you? Are you forced to run out and buy the game? Are your politicians passing legislation because of it? Does it have any bearing on your life in the slightest? No? Then quit whining like a damned child.

Crying about something like this is just as pathetic as the people who complain about movie critics who dislike highly rated movies. It's childish, and ridiculous.
