Where are the reviews??
There is a review embargo in place, which i believe(dont quote me on this) runs out two days after release day. Obviously, ubi have something to hide.
That's a real shame :( I don't trust them anymore for these awful business practices. cheating gamers only gets you so far. you can follow a stream here, it speaks for itself http://www.gamekult.com/liv...
Ubi isn't sending out review copies until after the game releases. It is a mixed blessing. On one hand it reduces the influence of media outlets that have shown themselves to be biased, inept, and wholly unreliable. On the other hand it assists in sales of incomplete titles shoveled onto the public. A feat which ubisoft has repeated this year ad nauseum.
they're hiding it's crap. me and my brother played the beta and on boy!! We played it for 5minutes before we both deleated it off our ps4's.
Not again Ubisoft. :(
something to hide? just play the beta and you'll see how bad the game looks and how terrible the cars handle. the only thing they are trying to hide "from" is the bad reviews!
For god sake people.. Just because a developer chooses to enforce embargos post review, does not mean the number 1 intention is to hide something. It's an MMO game for all intents and purposes. The reason Ubisoft had to delay official reviews is because journalists cannot be trusted. They would be much happier writing a day 1 review saying how much the game sucked than actually play it with thousands of other players as it was intended. This is not about developer to consumer. This is a battle between the general gaming press that write topics based on bait and traffic, and the developers that have to put up with all the shit. If you're the kind of person that will flat out refuse to buy a game without X site giving X score, waiting a few days won't kill you. For everyone else, it means very little.
Before the review's come up they want to sale a few copys of this crap game. I played two betas and could not stand it...After seeing scores around 6 or 7 out of 10 a lot of people would give it a miss..
I think 6/10 would be too generous.
I played two beta's, one on PC, the other on PS4. Both were awful experiences for me. The graphics were last gen, the general driving mechanics lacked big time and to be honest, it just looked boring as hell. The PC version i deleted after a few hours, the PS4 version, i thought i would be fair and give it the time, but alas, that only lasted one day before i deleted.
I expect some really low review scores on this. The beta was just horrible.
The beta was horrible, extremely boring. The graphics are very mediocre, watchdogs type stuff.
There is NO embargo. No surprise it's having issues really, the game is terrible.
Here we go again!!!
I think Ubisoft has burned the community way too much this year.....it's gonna cost them personally I haven't bought any ubi games this year and looks like I came out on top.
FarCry4 is really good, apart from that I'd agree with you. I did get Watchdogs given to me for my birthday, I think if I had swallowed the hype I would have been disappointed, but I wasn't expecting anything special and because of that I enjoyed it more than most seemed to.
The problem with fc4 is if you've played fc3 it just feels like more of the same, which inherently isn't a bad thing. Unless you're coming off a fresh playthrough.
Ubi-FLOP need to go back to making simpler games like rayman before I ever consider buying another one of their half arsed half finished games again. Far too many let downs with a 'once' brilliant publisher/developer this past year.
the question is, how the hell do they fall so far from grace in such a short time? their next gen outings last year with AC4 and Rayman Legends were amazing and from there onwards, everything just went downhill. WD was a major letdown, ACU is broken and even themselves have given up on it by cancelling the season pass, FC4 is ok because it was basically a copy and past of FC3 and now this.
Honestly i will go on record here as saying it's THE worst game I've played (in beta) in YEARS. It was like playing a psONE game. I swear I'm being 100% honest and true.
A lot of PS1 games are amazing, so that comment made no sense. A bad game is a bad game however.
Did they switch places with EA or something? I mean two crappy launches a few weeks apart is pretty pathetic.
