Murdered: Soul Suspect | IGN review

Murdered: Soul Suspect has a lot of great ideas, but none of them come together in a satisfying way.

It's starting to seem most games are doing horrible lately other than Mario Kart 8 of coarse.

admiralvic786d ago

Either we define "horrible" differently or you need to open your eyes more...

As it currently stands, Murdered: Soul Suspect has an 8.0 ratio on N4G with enough high reviews waiting to be approved to keep the game at or around a 7+/10. Watch Dogs has a metacritc average of 80 or 81 and Wolfenstein is at about 80 or 81 too. This pretty much covers all the big releases in May and even then a fair number of digital / smaller games scored fine (Transistor - 83, Kirby - 80, Mario Golf - 79, Soul Sacrifice Delta - 82).

People still blindly follow reviews and metascores.

What a pity.

They're the first to bitch and moan about how this generation is bad, filled with overrated games... Yet they proceed to disregard any game that averages 70 or less in Metacritic.

Clown_Syndr0me786d ago

I don't care what reviews say at all, so Im not "blindly following" them when I say this - Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs is awesome. It seems the good games are finally coming.

Yet another IGNorant review from IGN.

Game got plenty of 8's from reviewers who knew they were playing an adventure game.

Neonridr786d ago

Murdered on PS4 is currently holding a 59 on metacritic (61 on XB1). Now obviously Metacritic isn't the be-all-end-all, but that kind of average sort of gives you an indication..

NewMonday786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

@Neonridr

You know Metacritic is not an average, the site has hidden values that give sites multiplers over other sites, a score from IGN would equal 4-5 times the score from another site, meaning it would be like 4 sites giving a 5.5 instead of just the single 5.5

This is why publishers care what score IGN give and shower them with adds preferential coverage like "IGN firsts", they can hit the metric hard.

First Thief, now Murdered.
Square Enix, what are You doing?!

TheDivine786d ago

I'm still interested. Reminds me of Heavy Rain, Alan Wake, and Ghost Trick all rolled into one. The dev seemed cool in the interview I saw and I like to support original games from good devs. Otherwise they all go bankrupt. Il def watch some gameplay but it looks right up my alley.

Volkama786d ago

I liked Heavy Rain a lot
I didn't like Alan Wake
I have never heard of Ghost Trick.

Hmmmm what to do....

rivencleft786d ago

I've been waiting for this game for a while, I think it looks awesome, definitely agree with your comment on looking like a mixture between those games, never played Ghost Trick but Heavy Rain and Alan Wake were great games. Luckily I'll have it soon as GameFly finally sent me a new release title.

SaturdayNightBeaver786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

Now that they have it 5.5 i'm even more interested. Might as well be something good

Doletskaya786d ago

You should check out Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. It's so bad that IGN didn't even bother to give it a review, so you should be extremely interested in the game.

SaturdayNightBeaver786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

I played it , it was meh...

I don't see reviews like a big deal , as it's one,two persons opinion about game , i judge my games myself

DigitalRaptor786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

Goddamn IGN!

At least 8.5-9 in other places so far.

And... still interested.

DigitalRaptor785d ago

Goddamnit. :/

Oh well... I will still keep my eye on it, cause there have been a few badly rated games that i've enjoyed. thanks.

urwifeminder786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

Never heard of it another for the cheap sales I guess.
