It seems like they took down the review from that site. Mustve posted it by accident since its too early but its a legit review. Or I wouldve put the credit source for the 1st review.

No one posts their review early by accident, its all about hype.

because it was such a good was allowed to be leaked for a short time.

This inputs the idea that the game is really good...and your stuck with that thought for a few days before it's release.

This way there are 3-5 days of nobody disputing that or writing anything negative it's just that one positive thought, replayed in your mind over and over.

I'm assuming the game actually is good though. It seems different enough and they look like they care about gaming with this game.

^345 Nice conspiracy theory lmao!

There are no assumptions required; if you have any interest in this game you will already have seen some live footage demos.

This game WILL be at least "Very Good" and more than likely "Amazing/GOTY", so now you can relax and remove that ridiculous tinfoil hat, ha ha ;P

Yeah this was not posted by mistake, but a better question is do we really need a review on this one, I mean it was looking pretty awesome from the play-through..

I wrote about why you should be buying this here -

To me this is a -Day One- I would be surprised if you could find anyone saying I'm not getting this one, especially after seeing the play-though

Well the Demo comes out today at 1:00pm so I guess we are going to find out if it's really as good as all these reviews are saying..

-Man I hope so because I'm going to be enjoying this game if it's as good as they say-
I can't wait...1:00pm hurry up and get here..

I preordered it a few days ago and I've strictly monitored what I'm seeing. I can't wait for my "Joel Edition" to arrive, this sounds fantastic! bApart from the basic plot and the very early gameplay I'm practically going into this game blind! I can't wait; however, it has been a pain recently as I've been clearing up my backlog which means I must play the apalling AC3. I can't stand it BUT it is picking up as I'm at the church part when there is an important cutscene.

Ditto on the backlog. It turns out that joining PS+ ISN'T a good way to make your backlog get smaller...

God I need a break from all these free games. I hope the game next week is one i've already beat. It's getting out of hand. MY VITA is literally completely full with even more games waiting in the que to load onto it(and I delete nonreplayable games once I 100% them). First world problems.


Seriously though I can't wait for both of them. Both will be amazing.

I'm not even going to play the demo. I'm just going to rip into it all fresh in 2 weeks.

"Best game of all time"?
Over-Hyping much?

G20WLY1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )
