Aftonbladet.se Last of Us review

From one of the biggest Swedish evening papers

"Now there are of course a number of nice scenes, a few minutes here and there in the 16 hour action sequence, and I [Johan Martinsson] guess it will be enough to bring the world's game critics to be ecstatic of all "mind-blowing action" and moved to tears the characters' evolving father-daughter relationship. But seriously, this is a game based on a monotonous game concept already for years ago was trite to breaking point."

Lol troll review.Half the shizznit makes no sense.

Nitrowolf21651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

Agreed. I don't normally call reviews out, but the context of this review is so empty. They compared it to another game (The Walking Dead, TT Games), say it's not it, and then go on to say it's theme has been over-used and suddenly that makes it a bad game?

I've played it (not the demo, full game), it's no way a 2/5 = 4/10
Just read this snippet and tell me it's not a troll review.

"So I say: do not listen to these reviewers. There they speak is some kind of Orwellian opposite language, same as Jack Tretton spoke at last E3, the same as he will be speaking at this E3, the same as he and his followers and competitors are always going to speak, until the day we finally speak up."

They basically say "don't listen to other reviews"

Today seems to be troll review day

The_Con-Sept1650d ago

Sounds like a fanboy works at that Swedish magazine office.

I pictured Tyler Durden saying that quote, then screaming you're not an individual snowflake and running down the road nude with a golf club.

Just sayin', author seems a little quirky. Like has someone tied up in a pit in their basement quirky.

Damn troll reviews to spout exposition.

MS translate is awful! This review sucks!

(so this got approved with just 5/10 votes. yeah I smell the evil influence of an over eager mod. heh)

blitz06231650d ago

This review is turning out to be a success. It's currently sitting at 400 degrees. STOP CLICKING IT PEOPLE.

gaffyh1650d ago

It's a newspaper review guy, these reviewers are notorious for being idiots, because they aren't real gamers.

minimur121650d ago

lol at first, I saw the URL and thought

so their URL is Microsoft?

thats why their review is so biased!

oh wait... microsoft translator...

SolidStoner1650d ago

I never buy games based on review score.. Never!
Review is only for understanding the game basics..

Blackdeath_6631650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

i haven't got a clue how this got accepted it was reported so many time for so many valid reasons. i don't understand, what'ss the point of the submission system if one person can bypass it?

nypifisel1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

This is a terrible newspaper in Sweden, they're practically liars and idiots. Hated by most people.

JsonHenry1650d ago

I can see what he means about doing the same cover system/stealth over and over. But for my naughty dogs games have always been superb not because of the gameplay itself but the presentation in which the gameplay takes place, the detail to story and the game world itself making it so much fun you don't care that you are covering and firing the same way you would in a game such as Gears of War.

Their games are much more than the gameplay, the graphics, the plot, or the presentation. It is how they are are tied together seamlessly and packaged and then presented as a whole to the player.

Eh so this guy has an issue with the zombie/apocalpse theme and father daughter theme. Why did he even bother playing the game then? Sounds lik he wasn;t going to like it to begin with. Normally I don't call out reviews on being simply for hits, but looking at the context of the review he goes to just say: "It's not Tales Tells Walking Dead Game, This theme is over used and this daughter father relationship doesn';t justify killing"

Doesn't talk about much for the gameplay, crafting, or any key components.

"So I say: do not listen to these reviewers. There they speak is some kind of Orwellian opposite language, same as Jack Tretton spoke at last E3, the same as he will be speaking at this E3, the same as he and his followers and competitors are always going to speak, until the day we finally speak up."

Jesus XD

GribbleGrunger1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

Is that last quote actually from this review? I'm not giving them a hit.

If it is ... DEAD OH DEAR

At the end of the day it doesn't matter though. A few turds floating in a clear blue ocean tells you all you need to know about the credibility of sites like this.

Sizzon1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

Being from Sweden myself, aftonbladet just can't review games... and they are the biggest newspaper here in Sweden, but the journalists over there cannot be taken seriously often at times. Embarrasing.

FZ.se 5/5

Eurogamer Sweden 10/10

Gamereactor Sweden 10/10

better sites that are also all about gaming.

Firan1650d ago

Yeah it's a trash magazine.

abc12331650d ago

So I guess this is Sweden's answer to the Daily Mail.

KillrateOmega1651d ago

Sorry, but after seeing countless other reviews for this game that praise it like the 2nd coming of Christ, I cannot take this review seriously.
