I just played hotline miami this week. Excellent game. Wish it was longer, though.

kikizoo1481d ago

EDGE : again, a lot of 8,7...for nintendo or xbox and multi games, always on par with metacritics, on even better, when they always give 2,3 points less for sony exclusives = biased, not harsh !

Seems like Zombie U isn't the AAA title, most people thought it will be.
Gamestop Review is now live: Only a 4,5/10

"Wii U gamepad adds little and hurts immersion."

gimmicks all over again

TheRealSpy1481d ago

I like it. Glad i chose it to be my first U title.

iwin861482d ago

Uuups. I did it again. Mixed up Gamespot (gaming site) with Gamestop (evil game reseller). Sorry.

millzy1021482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

yeah but thats the only bad review of the game to my knowledge so what does that say every one else has nothing but praise for it so don't listen to one review, infact don't listen to any review play the games you want to play and enjoy them for what they are. and its not an fps its a survival horror with a first person perspective if you think its an fps then ur going to be solely disappointed. its like saying silent hill is a third person shooter which its not.

and a 7 out of 10 is not average its good average is 5 as its in the middle, if you think 7 out of 10 is bad then you shouldn't be a gamer as you don't understand game scoring.

Who is this everyone else when the game isn't even out? There are only three reviews, one is a 7/10 according to this article, one is a 4.5/10, and another is a 92/100 by the "Official Nintendo Magazine."

I'm going to believe an official Nintendo magazine as much as I'm going to believe an official Xbox magazine or official Playstation magazine.

Also, 7/10 is indeed a good rating, except for the fact that the review industry no longer has a good review system going on. A 7/10 by review standards now is more like a 5/10 by someone who actually uses the full scale, which in itself is just below average(2.5/5 instead of 3/5.) A 9/10 can sometimes actually be a 9/10, but it rarely deserves a 9/10 and more than likely deserves a 7/10 or 8/10.

Everyone bashes Jim Sterling for his reviews, but if you think about it, he's not doing anything more than using the entire scale rather than the artificial 7/10-10/10 being the only good games scale that other reviewers do. He's bashed some games I like as well, but he's pretty spot on most games. He actually doesn't bash on all games believe it or not.

@kupomogli

The problem I have with Sterling is that he applies a lot of his own personal preferences to the review and in doing so writes misleading information.

For example, he stated that Mario Kart 7 was too much like the games before it. I'm convinced he only wrote this because he generally does not like the Mario Kart franchise. Mario Kart 7 brought back the coin system, kart customization, underwater and sky segments and finally they completely and efficiently retooled online play and made it better than both Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii. Sterling failed to acknowledge any of this in his review and mostly just spewed on about how he didn't like the formula he was already uncomfortable with.

Then of course later on he gave Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 a near perfect score.

I'm not saying he cannot have those opinions, but those opinions and the justifications behind them are why I choose to ignore his reviews. He does not represent me and his tastes are far different from my own. I also believe he writes certain reviews for the sake of getting attention which does not sit well with me.

Samus HD1482d ago

5 is average in Movies..
for games 7 is like average
Just see the game reviews.. there are few games below 5

guitarded771482d ago

I'm not saying it's good or bad until I play it in about 14 hours, but I rarely agree with GameSpot's reviews, so I'm not too worried.

EPIKgamer1482d ago

Im sorry but anyone who take a gamespot review seriously I can not take seriously, one does not simple give Kinect Star Wars and Kinect Adventures the same score as SKyward Sword and still be considered a reputable place for reviews, EDGE however is a real hardass when it come to reviews, so their 7/10 are more like 8/10.

wastedcells1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

My decision to keep my wii u or sell it all rides on zombie u. Must say most of me wants to keep it because I love gaming but part of me knew I would have to sell it. A 2D Mario isn't enough for me to justify having another console sit there collecting dust. ZombieU was my only hope....... Hopes crushed. Stick too my ps3/vita and 3DS. Wait for the next round of games for wiiU before committing.

wages of sin1482d ago

Wastedcells is a great name for you.

ConstipatedGorilla1481d ago

You're going to keep or sell a brand new console based on one single game??

wastedcells1481d ago

There are only 2 games lol. Mario and zombie u so ya. Like I said just for now. F#cken fanboys.

linkratos1482d ago

Most AAA games get 4/5 from Gamespot.

Bluenuts91481d ago

Those links were both taken down because it turns out someone wrote fake articles. I couldn't believe that it was nearly that bad lol.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter a 3... that's harsh.

ZombiU a 7... haven't played it yet, but for what I've seen, it's probably the score it deserves. Looks to me like another average FPS.

Good score for Assassins Creed III.

Hitman Absolution a 7... hummmm... i'm not sure about this game.

BTW... what the hell is Hotline Miami ? Never heard of it. Google it.

Hmmm halo 4 got an 8? Warfighter a 3? Most of these scores seem to all be missing a well deserved point. Bump all the reviews up one point and you have a more believable scoreboard. Hotline Miami deserves a 10 play it

hennessey861482d ago

Looks like its 20 years to late

FriedGoat1482d ago

Halo 4 is an 8. Great online, but the campaign and spartan ops is stale.

CalvinKlein1481d ago

killzone games are 6s because everything about them is stale.
