Holy predictability, Batman!
Still getting this regardless of review scores, besides GameTrailers gave it an 8.7. They're usually spot on in their reviews.
gametrailer review was surprisingly good.. not talking about the score. the game is more of the same but it didn't bother the guy who reviewed it. good. for me personally I loved AC so much that I was dying for another one, at that point I didn't care if it looks the same. IGN and gamespot didn't touch on the side quest and the other stuff that you can do in the game. watching their video review .. fight after fight.. seriously I thought that was everything. anyway adam sessler review for the game was good, 4 out of 5.
6/10 is still a good game according to her. I dunno about you guys, but if one of my sons ever came home from school with a 60% on a test, the last thing I would tell them is that they did a good job. A D- is very far from good.
Whats "good" is relative to the person. If the son in question has a learning deficiency or has always been bad at math (scoring 30% or below) then I'd for damn sure tell him he did a good job if he got a 60. Thats a HUGE improvement.
So what you're saying is that the people at Warner Bros. have a learning deficiency? Or that all there past games blow? Not sure I am following... Edit: I do understand what you are saying, if someone had a 30% and then did a 60% that would be in line for "Nice improvement" followed by "keep trying you'll get there." This is a brand new studio though, so it is like throwing a kid into the 10th grade. They had some big shoes to fill.
Nah, 7 is good. 5-6 is below average to average, 4 is bad but not broken; 1-2-3 is varying degrees of brokenness/incompleteness.
So glad i gave this game a chance i so don't regret it.
I get that they aren't happy with the fact that the game feels like nothings changed and that's a valid point but when you're a site that consistently gives games like COD 9s/10s even though these games are released yearly and change shit all it really pisses me off. Either deduct points on all games for lack of innovation or don't do it at all.
Funny though that it's always A OK when it's COD, Assassins Creed, BF, Halo, Gears of War...They don't have to change, yet a game from 2011 gets a sequel in 2013 and OH MY GAWD THINK OF THE CHILDREN....How dare they not change what isn't broken or over saturating the market, with yearly cash-ins
compare halo 3 to halo 4, way different gameplay besides the basic core concepts
You people need to realize that Gamespot has more than one reviewer, so their opinion varies. Blame the reviewer not the whole company or whatever.
Still buying this game today. Arkham city is one of my top games this gen so even if origins is too similar, makes it even better for me.
Already downloading it on my gaming laptop with the season pass. Can't get enough Batman! :D
I'll just wait for the GotY edition with all DLC.
Um, so they give Arkham City a high score, but they give Arkham Origins a lower score because it's like Arkham City. Ooookay, that makes a lot of sense....
Please use your brain. Think.
I wouldn't give it a 6 because that implies mediocre, which this game certainly is not, but I will say that the review and reviewer have their merits. There is much truth in this critique of the game, namely the sense of "going though the motions". Not much has changed from the past two games and it is quite noticeable at times. The sole high-light of the game is it's story which imo is fantastic. It also looks miles better for me coming from PS3 to PC, but that obviously isn't the case for everyone. Would have liked to see more change within the game, but it's good for what it traditionally foes exceptionally well. I would personally give it a 7/10, with the hopes that in the future, should they make another one that they try different and newer things. Side-missions are great to me though, btw.
I agree this game at best is a 7
She is a great reviewer and I respect her for that.
