GameSpot: "One unforgettable character proves humanity is worth saving in the bleak and brutal The Last of Us."
Did expect troll reviews from them and polygon Best reviews are IGN & EDGE i mean... Edge and 10/10 Wtf
Best reviews the one that doesn't make buthurt and agree with me. FACE PALM.
He gave NBA 2K12 8.5... /facepalm.
haha I like how you list Adam Sessler rather than Rev3 games... that's exactly what everyone thinks of that site lol
how was posting review scores spam??? I basically posted all of the perfect scores that The Last of Us had received. Seems to me like this score is an anomaly.
Your just butt-hurt that they did not give it a 10.I bet if ign gave them that score you would be spamming their youtube vids right now.IGN is probabbly one of the worst reviewers...youd would be amazed on the scores they give to COD games lol
How is this any different than the way some people reacted to Halo 4 reviews and called them "garbage", remember? I'm sure you do lol http://n4g.com/news/1112891... http://n4g.com/news/1112850... Oh, but I forgot that games like Halo should always be scored highly by default.
Gamespot and Polygon sure are getting a lot of attention right now, hmmm?
Indeed. Their quest for hits has been a smashing success. Let's just hope nobody takes them seriously and misses out.
Ahhhh yes, Sony retards butthurt over 8/10, it gives me strength.
Still a great score. It is Tom after all...
I don't take it against Tom. He is paid by his company to troll TLOU just like he did TLOZ: Skyward Sword with that score. You can see the context of his review does not match his score. Its good to see the universal acclaim but our own opinion is more important.
But regardless, done entirely to get undue attention.
He gave GoldenEye 007 Reloaded the same score lol.
I knew i stopped visiting gamespot for a reason. I think it was one of their ratchet and and clank reviews that made me stop going.
cant wait to see what you can do in that new KC mode
I have something big planned, but i also have a special technique that i wanna give to naruto as well.
or you stopped reading because it's an 8 rather than a 10
no he is right, the Ratchet and Clank review killed it for me as well! i aint been to gamespot in years since that review!
Of the billion dollars MS is supposedly investing in games I wouldn't be surprised it half of that money is used to pay sites like gamespot for reviews like this.
The review in itself is pretty weak.. And I mean that objectively because I follow gamespot as my main site, and this is their weakest review in quite some while. And those problems they describe seems pretty insignificant compared to the 8/10 score they gave the game.
"seems pretty insignificant compared to the 8/10 score they gave the game" You act like they gave it a 5/10.
I don't intend to act If like they gave it a 5/10, kinda dumb if people get that opinion. All I'm saying is that I find it weird those "faults" they described in their review and the lack of sympathetic supporting characters equals a 8/10. It's down to a matter of opinion of course but from experience it's bizarre that gamespot gave the grade they did based on the reviews content. 8/10 is considered "Great", and it might fit the game very well for all I know. But I find the synergy between the grade and reasoning weird.. That's all :)
This is the same dumbass that gave Skyward Sword a 7.5. Also he gave Fable:The journey an 8,DKCR3D a 7. I cant take someone like that serious.
Stopped trusting Gamespot a long time ago and since I'm not reading any reviews (to avoid spoilers) I have to assume the game is actually at least a point higher than they gave it, that's usually how it works for me and their reviews.
Still a great score. But a 10/10 from Destructoid, Edge Magazine, IGN and Eurogamer. a 9.5 from Gameinformer :)
I disagree with the final scores on a lot of GS reviews. Skyward Sword for example. I do enjoy listening to what they have to say. I take the scores with a pinch of salt and kind of seen an 8 coming.
Check out his other reviews here http://www.gamespot.com/use... He gave "I am alive" and "Enslaved: Odyssey to the West" an 8/10 as well.
Enslaved Odyssey was also directed by the same guy of Last of Us as well. It's cool, opinion is an opinion. he did give Uncharted 3 a 9.0, though.
this is bit odd
i dunno for the first time...gmespot seems suspicious.. i mean 3 minute review??? i cant remember any review from gamespot THAT short
Normally they are longer than IGN's. Slightly odd.
even the WORST games are like 6-8 minutes
Big Rigs was pretty short.
You are always going to have a few reviews like this, but it doesnt change the fact that the game looks epic, especially considering the fact that an 8/10 is still a great score. it may not be the 10 people want to see but come on does it really matter the last of us has accumulated a healthy amount of perfect scores one 8/10 doesn't change anything.
Suddenly everybody here loves edge and IGN lol If this was the other way around, gamespot would be saviors and IGN would be still trolling. You guys don't love gaming, you love companies. It is sickening.
It's GameSpot though. They said Ratchet & Clank:FTofD had "too much variety" and Killzone 2 was "too clean".
I don't like any of them but it's clear that there is something behind this review. It's too short and the negatives doesn't deserve to take 2 points and when you look at his other reviews he gave worst games better score .
^ That concept alone breaks down the argument. Worse games? Have you played the last of us to make this judgement? Also, all reviews are the opinion of one person. Even if you compile all of these reviews, it equals the opinions of 10 people. I might love a universally hated game, or hate a universally loved game. Attacking people for their opinion, and praising others for theirs has no logic. Take that persons point of view for what it is, and move on.
With respect ^^ , I'm not attacking any opinion. Reviews should be about facts. Giving this masterpiece 8 then give a game like I am alive and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West the same scores means he see them in the same level which is completely untrue. He consider it the same then that's his opinion but in reality it's much better in story / gameplay / MP ..etc So it should get better score and then he say his opinion or he should have focused on the same level of criticism on the other two games and that would be a disaster to these two games.
t`s so funny to see the hypocrites from all over the world. First they hate ign, then they love them. Then they say reviews do not matter, it`s only opinions. Now it`s worth more than gold. Can they please make up your mind? I will buy this game, but it isn`t Demon`s Soul`s or Zelda. Probably a very good story, a one time play through and forgotten after a couple of months. I`m sorry to disagree with the hype even though I haven`t played the game yet, but over-hypers with teen minds haven`t either.
This coming from the guy who gave Game of Thrones a 7... -_-
Oh dear god, that guy. Haha. That game barely deserved a 5.
he shouldnt be working in this field
Gamespot gave TLOU 8/10. It's not weird when you look whoo wrote the review : Tom Mc Shea. He is an asshole. Check his other reviews to : http://www.gamespot.com/use...
why is harsh criticism bad. Its better than IGN handing out 10's to every other game. Its part of why people see 7.5 and think "it suckssss" That used to stand for a good game, and 10's came out once every few years. Now if its hyped enough, it gets a 10. His scores are actually fairly reasonable. Uncharted 3 got a 9, super mario galaxy a 10, lots of 9's. I don't see why you hate him because he gave a game that you haven't played yet an 8.
Don't defend him. http://n4g.com/news/892574/...
He gave Animal Crossing: New Leaf almost a whole point lower than average, DKCR: 3D over a point lower than average, LOZ: Skyward Sword almost two points lower than average, Infamous 2 almost a point lower than average, Mario Sports Mix almost two and a half points lower than average, Fable: the Journey almost two points higher than average, and Halo 3: ODST almost a whole point higher than average... and now this.
Tom McShea is the same guy who screwed up the wii motion plus calibration even though it said how to on screen. Then proceed to blame the game even after the edit on the review.
Because this is a game of the 9+ realm. And people who don't want to see that, are simply fooling themselves. It's the Ocarina of Time of this generation. How can you give a game that excels at every aspect an 8? I mean: - One of the best (if not the best) graphics of current gen consoles. - Awesome and deep story. - Excellent character development. - Superb audio. Professional voice performance. - Ambience that totally immerses you in the game. - Brilliant animations. - Awesome combat system. - And the list goes on and on and on... If that doesn't deserve a 9+ I don't know what's wrong with people.
^ but it hasn't even come out yet. You haven't played it and you're claiming its the ocarina of this generation? I doubt that it is, maybe it is, but why don't people play it first rather than getting butthurt over a few peoples opinions on the internet? Good job deciding for yourself.
Why are Gamespot reviewers so nitpicky? Some of the downfalls the reviewer stated are just plain stupid. And he is the same guy that gave The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 7.5/10
Something is wrong with Gamespot: Remember Me 7.0 Last of Us 8.0 WTF! I'm going to read IGN's review 10/10. By far IGN scores are the best, Remember me was scored with a 5.9 because is a bad game and Last of Us with a 10 because is an amazing game. I remeber an infamous Gamespot's score for Final Fantasy VIII: 7.5, Gamespot is a nice site but something happens with the reviews, because haven't sense.
What's wrong with GameSpot? Giving a game you've never played a lower score than something you desire? Maybe the game is great, maybe it isn't, but nobody knows until we play the game.
Too much variety?
Just trying to get more hits than IGN ! They are making hay while the sun shines, and it is shining brightest at the launch of LOU !

From now on I'm not gonna listen or even bother reading any gamespot review, the same critic gave infamous 2 a 7.5, and gamespot also have GoW:A 8/10, not that GoW:A is a bad game but how can they put TLOU in the same category as it? Many other mediocre games scored better than an 8, yet this one reviewer wants to give Sonys best exclusive game an 8/10?
All of a sudden IGN is credible. Next week they'll be garbage again. Only on N4G.
Its almost sickening to see this hypocrisy. But, it's oddly funny to read it as well.
Wow, you people should visit gamespot system wars forum, there a bit of a meltdown going on over there, but what's worse is the immature Xbox fanboys on gamespot claiming the the last of us is crap from 1 single review, despite every other website praising the game, and with a 95 on metacritic. Seriously reading through the posts on that site almost gives me brain damage, it's literally full of immature 12 year olds.
it really funny they ignore the 95% metascore which much more important than 1 review and calling this game a crap they gone so low after the xbox1 reveal ...they pretty much live in their own bubble
Yup according to the die hard fanboys on that site, only the gamespot score matters lol,, you're right, they do live in their own little bubble, many people on that site have pointed out the metacritic score and the xbots just ignore it, you can lead a horse a to a troff but you can make it drink lol
doesn't matter what they think now when any one point out the metascore ...they run to "oh but this is "system wars" " really sad sad people they are the laughing stock for every one right now this game have GOTY all over it and a huge contender for GOTG all over it this year GOTY will be between this game and Bioshock and GTAV and maybe beyond too
So what you're saying is that gamespot forums are just like n4g except for having more than one kind of fanboys!
If this was as Xbox exclusive it would get an extra point.
Jesus Christ you Sony fanboys are unreal. When did 8/10 become a bad score? Maybe that guy just didn't think it was PERFECT. Game looks great and will be picking it up, but to claim conspiracy theories when a game you like doesn't get a perfect 10 is just childish.
Best review out there just because the goal of the review was not to praise the game and devs, and instead critize the game which it seemed other reviews failed to do. Fanboys are very ignorant and blind, and it shows in their reviews. (primarily talking about ign.)
