It's definitely gonna be interesting. We can see what ms has been cooking up all this time. Anyone coming to n4g for the next couple of weeks for mature topics is out of luck I predict bloody battles from both camps

Absolutely not. Everybody on N4G are civilized people that respect others opinions. /s
HammerKong  +   498d ago
we dont know but its true that here are many fanboys ,who only takes one side people must understand that what matters is games and experince and its on them what they likes the most we people dont want to hear their fanboy voices.have good dissussins.
ZodTheRipper  +   498d ago
I'm expecting Polygon to go full retard and the other media to rate everything in favour for MS just as always.
sincitysir1  +   498d ago
After playing knack an loving it I decided reviews are stupid for all games. If ur undecided screw reviews. Watch a stream and it'll help u decide. Knack is an awesome game an the reviewers did it a disservice. So if any Xbox games get low scores just watch a stream and ill realize how great streaming is. Honestly guys.
stevehyphen  +   498d ago
I know what you mean.
I bought killzone and knack, but killzone isn't getting any love yet. Knack is so satisfying.

Forget the media. Ironic that I say that on a news aggregate. I've encountered numerous people on this site that are more knowledgeable and realistic than some of the idiots disguised as journalists. Don't get me wrong, there are moronic posters here, too.
Felonycarclub8  +   497d ago
At the two above me, knack is awesome I really don't understand some of the reviews is like they were expecting something out of this world. Knack is like a tribute game to crash bandicoot and I loved bandicoot and I like games like this where I don't have to be so serious all the time and just have fun. When I read reviews for games I try to look for things that should be a concern and separate the BS that the reviewer has with the game.
stevehyphen  +   497d ago

I think it's one of the beautiful things about live from PlayStation.
At any point you can just fire that up and there are countless streams out there for any games available on ps4. I think it's a great thing because many out there already do that with YouTube.
It's like you can review a ps4 game on your ps4 before you actually pay for it.
P0werVR  +   497d ago
I predict a quiet crowd on the other side, because we'll be playing a lot of FUN games.

this will be interesting... are those times just IGNs times or does it apply to the rest aswell like eurogamer etc etc?
DeadManIV  +   498d ago
I assume the embargo ends for everyone at the same time - makes sense.

Give us a fair, non-biased, non-bribed review please.
colonel179  +   498d ago
You are asking for way too much!
thrust  +   498d ago
Yeah because on this site any good review for the xbox will be because they have been paid off
sobotz  +   498d ago
Even the negatives one for PS games are because they've been paid by MS, such logic

colonel179  +   498d ago
Woah, coming to defend the Xbox and assuming things that weren't even written.

My comment was about gaming journalism in general, not Xbox reviews. Since when have you seen a fair, non-biased, non-bribed review on any site? If you have, it is definitely an exception. Since last generation, gaming journalism has been crap.
JasonKCK  +   498d ago
That's just sad
Moncole  +   497d ago
Most sites do that but when ever a person doesn't agree with the score the site must have gotten payed.

What you WANT is average scores for Xbox On exclusives. You aren't going to get them, they aren't average.

Can we get unbiased reviews? The reality is we can't.

Evil_Abed  +   497d ago
No what you really want is for Xbox one games to get bad reviews like ps4. How com PS fans never call bias when uncharted and lbp get great reviews?
georgenancy  +   498d ago
my predictions:
Dead Rising-8
Killer Instinct-7
M-M  +   498d ago
I would have to say those are pretty accurate, although I think Forza will have a lower score and Killer Instinct's will be higher.
georgenancy  +   498d ago
forza has always gotten good reviews so i dont expect that trend to suddenly change;all i can say is hide your kids hide your wives,its gonna get nasty
MELMAN26  +   498d ago
I agree that killer instinct will be higher...the only reason I can see them giving this game a low score is because of the amount of characters at launch.

Other than that I don't see why it wont get an 8 or higher.

#7.1.2 (Edited 498d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(1) | Report
georgenancy  +   498d ago
bookmark this page every one,if my predictions aren't close to the final scores,i'll be prepared to eat crow
from the beach  +   498d ago
I like your predictions, seem pretty reasonable!

Killer Instinct is the wild card..
Fireseed  +   498d ago
Alright well if were throwing our hats into the rings then...

Ryse 8
Dead Rising 9
Forza 8
Killer Instinct 9.5
MELMAN26  +   498d ago
My predictions are

Ryse 8
Killer Instinct 8
Forza 9
Dead Rising 8
JustPlay4  +   498d ago
Predictions (maybe wrong oh well)doesn't really matter

Ryse - 6.5 or 7.0
Dead Rising - 7.5
Forza - 9
Killer Instinct - 7
Ausbo  +   498d ago
I agree. I think ryse will get about the same as killzone. Around a 7.5.

I think killer instinct will suprise many
valet_Smerdyakov  +   497d ago
my metacritic predictions:

Ryse 71%
Forza 89%
Dead Rising 73%
Killer Instinct 81%
Sketchy_Galore  +   497d ago
Okay I'll give it a shot.

Ryse - 7
Dead rising - 8.5
Forza - 9
Killer instinct - 8
I_am_Batman  +   497d ago
I'll try it too:

Ryse: 6.5-7
Dead Rising: ~6.5 ... (If the framerate issues are drastic)
Forza: 8.5-9
Killer Instinct: 7.5 - 8 ... (Hope it gets higher reviews though)

Riderz1337  +   498d ago
Lol they changed the UI on IGN to make it look like the Xbox One's UI. "Brought to you by Xbox One"

Ryse - 10/10 GOTY
Forza 5 - 10/10
Dead Rising 3 - 10/10

Lol only joking but I found it funny how they did the whole UI change hours before the Xbox One reviews...
Muadiib  +   498d ago
Dead Rising-8.9
Killer Instinct-8.8

I think Killer Instinct is an unfair review though, it should be reviewed when all 8 characters are released and the other modes too, otherwise I think I'll be accurate.
#9 (Edited 498d ago ) | Agree(5) | Disagree(9) | Report | Reply
HammerKong  +   498d ago
we dont know about rise much but i would not be shocked if it got above 9 or 9 because the game looks good and if it get lower ,then it also does not matter because lauch titles dont use to be that good ,but if it get good score then the cures of launch titles be dissaper ,whatever happens i will be waiting to play them.
Fireseed  +   498d ago
I think KI is gonna do fine review wise seeing as a good majority of IGN staff are aware of the platform model in KI exists in other games like LoL and Dota. It's just very hard for people who play exclusively on console to mentally grasp what's going on with it, so it scares them and they get angry.
Muadiib  +   497d ago
Well I was right that it was too early to review KI till they released the full roster and other modes, I wasn't far off the score mind ;)

DR is a little lower than I thought but is reviewing well, defo a good launch game.

Overall I'm happy so far, Crimson Dragon is my only disappointment tbh.

I look forward to Forza and Ryse's reviews, I doubt Forza will score low and Ryse is at the very least the best looking next-gen game out there, here's hoping it is also fun!
BobBelcher  +   498d ago
As they say on the internet:
"Dis gon' be gud."
x_RadicalAura_x  +   498d ago
My predictions:

Forza 5 - 10/10
Dead Rising 3 - 10/10
Ryse - 10/10

(From Microsoft paying for those scores... I'm looking at you especially, Polygon)
sobotz  +   498d ago
It's not Polygon's fault that Knack sucks
sincitysir1  +   498d ago
But it doesn't suck. Just like when some Xbox games get crap scores an u play it ur gunna be like wow those reviewers were wrong! This game is awesome.
LordDhampire  +   497d ago
Ill give you knack probably got scores around what it deserves, but polygon is a biased site trying not to show bias
Flutterby  +   498d ago
Polygon will give forza 5 an 11/10 they will say the less cars and tracks than forza 4 makes it easier to pick what you want and is a stroke of genius.
Mikefizzled  +   498d ago
My personal guesses of Metcritic
Killer Instinct - 85
Forza 5 - 80
Dead Rising - 75
Ryse - 65
Regardless thats the list of games I'm getting
HammerKong  +   498d ago
i'am realy exited for these games and please dont do unfair pridictions you dont know ,so please i'am not getting any thing to do on my ps4 there are not much games on it and i want something to keep me buisy out of my work.please dont ruin the day.
WOW! MS seems to pay for everything these days. If they get good reviews they paid for the reviews but if its bad then its fair. Sony gets bad reviews therefore MS must have paid them to give Sony exclusives bad reviews. I mean its Sony, all their exclusives should be 10s. Get a grip people, Knack Sucks! Fact! I am sure it has its fans, just like I am sure Lococycle will have its fans but that game sucks to me too. Its the truth. Killzone is eye candy and that's all it brings to the table. BF4 is the only FPS worth getting this launch for both consoles.
JackISbacK  +   498d ago
i dont know but it is starnge that how can somebody can be soblind ,people at this sites always youse to find tease each other and most are the fanboys from sony and it is realy annoying i'know if xb games got good reviews ,people will speake this shit ony.

Flutterby  +   498d ago
If Ryse and DR3 get more than a 7 you know who got paid lol
MELMAN26  +   498d ago
And why is that? Have you played both of these games?
Flutterby  +   497d ago
Yes I have tried them both , many ppl have now, I even had vids on YouTube till they got taken down.
MELMAN26  +   497d ago
lol....sure they did. Like the other vids of xb1 games that are taken down.

To answer your question about Killer Instinct having deep combat watch these videos, stop being a hater.


#15.2 (Edited 497d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(3) | Report | Reply
Flutterby  +   497d ago
Oh righty I didn't realise deep combat was what button mashing was now called , I'm guessing you would think ps all stars had deep combat as well. I don't care if you believe me or not but I KNOW I played the games and I know how bland Ryse is and I KNOW how badly DR3 was made, it's not hating it's called telling the truth.
#15.2.1 (Edited 497d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(6) | Report
LordDhampire  +   497d ago
Ryse I dont believe could get more than a 8, dead rising around 8.5 dead rising is one of those games where reviews dont matter...always fun
McScroggz  +   498d ago
I'm surprised so many people think Killer Instinct will get such good reviews. The best fighting game scores range from 80-85 or so with only a rare game getting higher than that. The Wii U's version of Injustice: Gods Among Us only averages an 82 on Metacritic and that is a damn fine fighting game. Plus, it IS Double Helix.

I am curious to see how reviewers handle the game's business model.
#16 (Edited 498d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
mhunterjr  +   497d ago
That's because Injustice is a fun, but mediocre fighter. All signs point to KI having a very deep combat system. I think it will review VERY well...
Flutterby  +   497d ago
What signs point to KI having a deep combat system ? The original didn't have one , the new ones vids look like button mash city. There is nothing deep about it lol.
mhunterjr  +   497d ago
@Flutterby have you seen the videos from training mode? This game will definitely be a hit in competitive circles. Sure button mashers can have fun with it, but they'll get worked by a good player.
Jdoki  +   498d ago
If I were getting an XB1 (which I'm not) I would hope DR3 gets really good scores. I like that series a lot and would not say no to it appearing on PS4.

It really wouldn't surprise me if we saw high 8's / low 9's for Ryse. No idea why as the game looks a solid 7 to me - but I just have a feeling reviewers are going to go nuts for it.

Forza will get 9's and 10's as reviewers seem to like arcadey sims

Killer Instinct - no idea. Could get 6's could get 9's. Hard to tell.

"It really wouldn't surprise me if we saw high 8's / low 9's for Ryse. No idea why as the game looks a solid 7 to me - but I just have a feeling reviewers are going to go nuts for it."

Really? I've gotten the impression that most (but not all) reviewers have found Ryse very basic. And other than the graphics the game has always looked very shallow to me, which is sad because I'm a HUGE fan of Roman culture. Plus, the review embargo for Ryse is midnight Thursday - aka Xbox One launch - and Microsoft has been making a big marketing push. I honestly believe Microsoft questions how well reviewers will receive Ryse and have tried to stave off negative reviews until, quite frankly, it's too late for gamers.
Jdoki  +   497d ago
Yeah, the embargo definitely raises suspicions.

I dunno, just got a gut feeling that we're gonna be surprised by the press reaction to Ryse.

We shall see!

The first trailer I saw of Ryse knocked my socks off. It looked so cool... then the game play kicked in and all my interest started to evaporate.
Nartzee-Ninja  +   497d ago
Generally I think the Xbox One launch line up will score nicely.The games look great and appear to be alot of fun with many unique features.
g-nome  +   497d ago
Good luck MS.
ltachiUchiha  +   497d ago
Reviews should not matter to those who want to enjoy the games they want to enjoy on whatever console u enjoy. Good or bad, just go with what u enjoy. Dynasty Warriors & Madden usually always have crappy scores but it doesnt stop me from buying those games. Reviews now days are all crap. If u dont give them a duffle bag of goodies, u can trust them to find a way to piss off fanboys for hits. Enjoy your games on all consoles & hope xbox one has a good launch aswell.
feraldrgn  +   497d ago
I'm expecting high scores.
Kayant  +   497d ago
I expect average of 7s for most games & average of 8 for XB1.
ger2396  +   497d ago
Do the reviews really matter at this point? If your getting an Xbox one, a review is not going to change your mind. Besides most of the reviews are on gaming sites that the casual game or potential customer will never see.
