What an awful review.

WillM171659d ago

4.5 is too much for this game

That's what your IQ test said?

It was a boring game but the visuals alone make it higher then that

This is a score you would normally give too very bad games, such as those movie to video game type of games... Giving a game like KZ: shadow fall a score like them is just stupid and insulting. It may not be the best but damn, give it a little more credit than that for it's production value and quality at least. 7/10 min. 9/10 max.

Didn't think I would be one to defend KZ since I do think its' an awful game, but for being a launch title,and for it's technical efforts alone - even if not completely successful - it's gotta be worth a 6-6.5. However, I do understand your frustration with this title. Still, I would never say your opinion is Wrong or accuse you of trolling or even remove bubbles and personally insult you, because of what you say. Why?, because I'm an adult, that's why. When everyone on this site has the same view, gaming will be dead.

Lol, don't sweat it man, what happened is simple.

The website is coming out with a very late review of the game. Whether this review was positive or negative, the reviewer knows that nobody gives a sh!t since it has been so long. On top of the that, the 2.1 million plus gamers think otherwise.

So the plan was simple really. Try to score it as low as possible so that he can maybe get some hits for the website.

But a very short sighted move really. People don't easily forget when they're unfairly slighted. And we'll see how the website is doing in 12 months or so.

Exactly, I remember about a month ago someone put out a review on the TLOU, and what do you know, it was one of the very few that gave it a bad grade, it was like a 5/10 or something lol. It was painfully obvious that he was just trying to get reads, I mean the review came out like 6 months after it released lol.

I know right, I've been playing it all week and it's really not that bad. A solid 8 at least

Put it this way despite being another FPS it's better then COD and Battlefield and yet it got worse scores then them. How does that happen, I mean really.

The only bad point so far is that I don't know where to go most of the time because of lack of way points, mostly because the levels seem more open them past games. Oh and the sonic emitter thing is a drag to make sure you don't over charge it, they should of done it so you press right and it goes off straight away, not holding it down.

what an attention W**RE! 4.5 is for barely playable game and while not perfect, KZSF runs flawlessly, it looks stunning and the MP is quite good. sure the story is nothing to write home about and the AI is somewhat dumb at times, but 4.5? GTFO!

oh, while we're at it, why not look at their BF4 review? oh...a staggering 8.5! it's a bug ridden game and have PROBLEMS ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS and EA and DICE are still repeatedly apologizing for the issues they still can't fix entirely but hey, it's Battlefield, so it must be great! /s and they call their review "in-depth"?? seriously, GTFO!

ovnipc1659d ago

4.5....I'm sorry but No, that is just ridiculous. The game is not perfect but 4.5 is just screaming that you are desperately trying to get attention.

CrossingEden1659d ago (Edited 1659d ago )

Try doing this thing called watching the review. People need to stop just looking at the number and saying "NOPE, YOU'RE OBJECTIVELY WRONG"

theWB271659d ago

Watching the review won't do anything. You know what 4.5 represents on a 10 scale? A fundamentally broken game with few, if any, redeeming qualities.

I've watched alot of Killzone through Twitch and there is NOTHING there to warrant a 4.5.

At the 9:52 mark he's complaining because the voice acting didn't convey humor and it sounded as though they were reading from a script without any effort. Between some lines there's an awkward pause making things...well..awkward.

That alone is enough to know this guy is being tremendously nit picky and docking points left and right for minute things.

admiralvic1659d ago

This game is 2 months old and many people have played this game enough to know how good or bad it is. Anyway, I looked at the page and disagree with it.

Graphics are good, which I agree with.
Story is awful, well Killzone has always had an awful story and I think it deserves more than a 1. Not much more, but something more.
Sound is a 5, though I have no clue what to say there. I don't think it is really logical to factor sound in for a game like Killzone (or most shooters).
Gameplay scores low, which just isn't true. Killzone handles fine.
Controls are also low, which I also disagree with. Killzone is uses most of the standard stuff and it works fine / goes well.
Value is very low, which makes absolutely no sense to me. While you can argue 5 is average and that is a fair score for things like sound, gameplay and controls, you can't say the same about value. As it stands, Killzone has always been a multiplayer driven shooter and has plenty of value there. The fact that the game will have all the MP map packs for free alone should put the value above 2.5. Even if you do want extra content, you could get the season pass, which isn't even that much and gain multiplayer co op missions too.

In all and all, I can't tell if the reviewer is wrong or this is one of those examples where this style of scale works against the review. Though, considering value is so low, I assume the person is in the wrong.

morganfell1659d ago

Watching the review just gives them another hit for their equally useless youtube channel.

Hicken1659d ago

I'm... agreeing with theWB here(gonna go check my temperature in a second).

A game that far down on the scale is one full of flaws, a barely finished product. Even most crappy movie tie-in games score a 5, and there's really no way you can say Shadow Fall is worse than such games without showing yourself to be a fanboy.

The author is, objectively, wrong. Because, objectively, the game does too many things right to deserve such a score. You're also wrong, for thinking that watching the review will somehow help people understand how this score is justified. But you CAN'T justify the score without the mentality that comes along with being a fanboy or a troll.

I guess I'm not surprised to see you defending the score, but I have to ask: you HATE everything having to do with Sony, so why are you here?
