Can Guerilla Cambridge finally give the Vita the blockbuster shooter it sorely deserves, or have they hired the wrong man for the job? Read these words and we'll tell you in our Killzone: Mercenary review.
X D ROFL!
NowLamer strikes again. This website is one of the worst in the web.
PlayStation Exclusives reviews are always the perfect vehicle of opportunity for websires to get tjem clicks and hits. Always Gotta get this game.
Yeah what I tend to do is skip the lowest and highest scores and go for one in the middle. They tend to be most accurate.
Even for TLOU?
If you look at the averages of this game so far then it is quite easy to see how very far off the mark this so called reviewer at nowgamer happens to be. This article is surrounded by numerous others here that are 10, 9, 9.8, 9, 9.5 and so on. Nowgamer...more like now give me a hit.
8/10 for graphics? Just what does this reviewer expect the Vita to produce? This is the pinnacle of graphics on the Vita, regardless of what else you think of the game.
haha... i watch this song on youtube.. lord of the ring troll 10 hour.. after the game arrive we judge it our self.. i know it's has much potential.. the beta is so good...
Don't click the link! Don't give those fools your money or your time.
WTF, WIth His Words and How He Described playing it, This Person Who Reviews it Doesn't know anything and Just likes to Have some Hits. Retard -_- . Why Are they letting This Kind of People Do the Reviews? FFS.
He probably sucks at the game and is raging.
Why Are You Talking Like This? Isnt It Annoying To Hold Shift AFter Every Word? But yeah I agree.
I was wondering the exact same thing. It's almost like he knows that I have Comment Snob installed, and that I have a filter for excessive CAPSLOCK use, but he's tactfully avoiding it by just capping the first letter of almost every word. On the review: Eh. This is why you read a multitude of reviews, not just one. Not everyone will like every game. No matter what game, someone will love it and someone will hate it. Here, you've heard from someone that hates it. Now go read a review by someone who loves it. Then, go read a review by someone who thinks it's just OK. Then judge for yourself which one(s), if any, sound like they're speaking to your interests. There ya go. :)
lol ......talking...not typeing...no....talking....lol seriously tho why all the caps?
Wish people would stop saying that. NOT EVERYONE wants to give a game a poor score and go "Yknow what. I'm sure we'll generate a lot of good attention from this game. It will in no way affect our relationship with our readers." SOME DO. But not everyone.
I can't believe this clowns review is on metacritic! We finally get a good shooter on the vita but it really seems to me everyone wants to troll the vita for hits.
Like website?No Story quality? WTF
that is they opinion.. i judge my self.. after the copy arrive..
Much respect to you my friend. I laugh at people that cancel Pre orders when they read reviews no opinion no personality.
Unless, you know, it's a game like Dead Space 3.
Wow downvote this site. He obviously hate killzone
Do not read, major spoilers in review. Im not entirely sure since I havent played the game, but sounds like the reviewer is just putting it out there, paying no mind to people who havent played the game....like me :'L
trash media....don't bother.
Graphics 8.0 / 10 Sound 6.0 / 10 Gameplay 5.5 / 10 Longevity 4.0 / 10 Multiplayer 5.0 / 10 Overall 5.5 / 10 This is how he breaks it down don't bother clicking on the site and giving it hits. You can tell he is BS when he gives gameplay a 5.5, also the multiplayer I loved the beta, the sound sounds great on the beta so I believe the full game is better. Longevity a 4.0 when you have multiplayer makes sense. Fail review.
The sound and graphics (for the beta) seemed well enough for the vita and the multiplayer was very fun. But I can see the gameplay and longevity getting those score, even if I think they are still a little low. The gameplay just fell so clunky and out of place it made playing online( again going off beta ) an unnecessary hassle. It could have easily just have been the vita itself causing the control problems, but if that's the case I don't hold much hope for fps on the Vita. Overall though, I agree that the score is too low. Should be in the 8 range.
LOL, good thing there was a beta. Anyone that has played it knows that the gameplay and multiplayer is far from a 5/10. Longevity being that low is also questionable as I personally put a lot of hours in the beta alone which had only one map. Good thing I've actually played the game myself so negative reviews won't sway my decision at all this time around.
From what I've heard so far EVERYONE loves the beta, so your comment makes even more sense Transporter. People need to watch out for bogus reviews and bs in general, especially on here where we get such a variety of unknown sources. My Vita is coming in the mail so I will get to try it out shortly for myself. Too many great games on the Vita and so much to be excited about either way!
One thing people seem to forget with these games is to take into account the price. Looking at it now on GAME (UK) it retails for £28.99. This is almost HALF the price of PS3/360 game. You really get a lot of bang for your buck with this game, and from playing the beta I dont think they have skimped on quality at all with this game.
not to mention the extra large day1 patch that fixed whatever problems it did have....I had a blast with the beta they are out fot hits.
I think the platform should be taken into account to. A real console quality FPS with a proper twin stick control scheme is unheard of on a handheld. How about a little credit for that fact, whether you like Killzones particular style of gameplay or not. Anyway, he seems to be in the vast minority. Theres alway one, or even two or three.
Some good points there. People who want to nitpick can usually find something negative in any game or even make things up. these types of people don't usually give credit for all the positive aspects because they are clearly biased. The fact that he is in the vast minority is all the more reason to question his motivations. To quote Shadowolf below: "I must state that this review seems so blantantly intentional and a clear disregard for the truth" All I need to hear are the great things people are saying about this game to know I'll be trying it out when my Vita gets here.
What's wrong with these reviews?? One single map in the beta multiplayer got me hooked for hours and then the multiplayer gets a 5.0??
Given the fact that there are 4 ways to play each of the 9 levels in the single player campaign and it has a robust multiplayer based on the beta, I have no idea what the reviewer is doing giving the re playability such a low score.
one of the most imbecilic reviews I have ever read
The server of the multi-play has not yet worked.
Wow! I'm currently playing the games challenging campaign and undeniable multiplayer which is still having the pre-launch kinks ironed out (but its still tons of fun)and going against my professional judgment, I must state that this review seems so blantantly intentional and a clear disregard for the truth. This is so sad I had to read it twice. It doesn't matter what system this game is on, it is without a doubt an amazing shooter. I never address fellow gaming writers for their review or opinions however, reading this review and actually playing the game, I'm scratching my head in utter disbelief. As gamers take the plunge to invest in KZ Mercenary, this dreadful and uninformative review will have a reverse effect discrediting the reviewer and the network which allowed it be posted. It is almost comical how this review goes to great lengths to shower this impression with negative tones bordering on saying the game is a trigger pull from aweful. This is unbelievable and we wonder why developer get laid off. If I never played the full version or got extensive hands-on, there is no way I would buy Killzone Mercenary after reading this review. Playing the game, sure, it is not perfect, yet running on the Vita and it is damn near close to it. NowGamer really? Lets try to at least do our jobs with integrity, this is embarrassing!
true. i'm all for freedom of speech and 'reviews are opinions',but when reviews ,in this case pertaining to games ,are published i feel there has to be some sort accountability to it. if points are docked for illogical reasons,or any reason that betrays a reviewer's integrity it should be branded as such. we need a reviewer to review the reviewer's. p.s a game should be reviewed on its own merits. constant comparism to its console brethren just makes one look silly.
lol at the reviewer! remember the review of The Last of Us from Gamespot ?? btw is this a review or an insult ..?? every fuc*** things that he said was like insult!!!
Some of the top reviews on Metacritic keep saying that this game wouldn't be anything special if it was on console. If it was one console, then it would be a console game, a PS3 game. Why do people even bother reviewing games if they aren't going to keep their reviews in perspective to the system that its one. Like hey, lets review this game for what it isn't, instead of what it is. It reminds of PlayStation All Stars. It got trashed for supposedly not being original, but then when the game releases, reviewers wished it would have been more like Smash Bros? WTF?
Yeah they all keep comparing it to a console experience which is ridiculously unfair since it's a handheld not a console. Also I'm sensing bias in most of the mixed/negative reviews. To be honest though I saw these scores coming a mile off and it won't deter me from buying the game.
It's an opinion. Get over it. How does the score affect your enjoyment of the game?
The thing is that it ain't am opinion but a hoax. Why give the multiplayer as left a 5? This is based where? The beta which only consist of a single map and pretty much where most bugs are still exhibited? To ,y knowledge servers will go up not until tomorrow therefor the 'reviewer ' is clearly basing his reviews out of thin air.
People need to be truthful, and stop lying about reviews. Just for hits. Nowgamer.com is sorry.
WTF and a NO.
critics just comparing vita games with ps3 games, if this was on 3DS it probably would not have less than 9
this^^^^^ you never see them comparing mario 3d land to mario galaxy......smh ' just disrespectful!' * imagines Steven A. Smiths voice*
DON'T CLICK THE REVIEW LINK .... this review is garbage... doesn't even kind of match with all the other reviews coming out. Just makes no sense. I'd say this was another M$ funded website. Just as Microsoft got caught with the TLOU review.
http://n4g.com/news/1346832... Need I say more?
Who the fuck is nowgamer and frankly who the fuck cares, I see someone didn't get enough attention when they were a kid
They are deleting my posts lol, where I ask if they are earning some money to harm the scores of Sony games on Metacritic LOL...
