Luftrausers Takes Out Metal Gear and Ninja Gaiden in a Blaze of Glory

Yesterday was a stacked day for releases... with 2 major titles dating back to the days of the original NES. So how is it a download only, monochromatic indie game is kicking their butts in review scores? GamerzUnite looks at the indie wunderkind that is Luftrausers. (Industry, Luftrausers, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z)

They forgot Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. It's sitting at 85 on Metacritic. I picked both that and Metal Gear up yesterday.

Metal Gear dates back to the MSX2, the NES version is barely official. Since we're being goofy over here I figured I'd mention that.

Metal Gear NES was crap. The MSX version was SOOOO MUCH BETTER

Not really fair comparisons IMO. The other 2 games are held to a higher standard because of their price. The expectations on indie games aren't nearly as high and they can get good scores simply on gameplay alone.

Wouldn't that be a double standard imposed by reviewers then? After the success of Ridiculous Fishing... I think it's fair to say there's a great deal of expectation on Vlambeer to make hit games.

That's triple-A for ya. Where money is involved you get stagnation, minimal effort, zero passion, stasis and a hefty price tag. Money is not a guarantor of quality, it militates against quality, as well as innovation, newness, and open-mindedness.

It would be more correct to expect poor quality from triple-A titles. All style no substance.
