Bloodborne could be one of the year’s very best…or it could end up being yet another disappointment in a generation that hasn’t quite delivered.
Between 9.9/10 and 10/10 :P Joking aside, I am pretty sure it will be between 9/10 and 10/10.
My prediction is an 87 meta critic after 1 week. I say we have a contest and whoever comes closest wins bubbles. :)
Lol, I say 92 meta critic after 1 week.
Crap, I was going to say 92... Hmm, I'll just say 100 lol. Although in truth it seems like most "reviewers" wouldn't know an incredible game if it bit them in the a**, so it could score low for all we know. It's my most anticipated game this year and I can't wait to get a hold of it.
I think it will score around an 8 on Metacritic. Not because it's a poor game or a mediocre game, but because there will be people who are hoping/expecting this to be like the Souls games, and those might be disappointed it's more arcade-based and faster, so they'll judge it on something it's NOT, instead of judging it for what it actually is. So you'll have your expected 9's and 10's, but the average score will be brought down by the 6's and 7's it gets from those who expected something else.
I'm going to say it most likely deserves a 90+ Meta but will get closer to an 84 because that is how this gen rolls.
I got 82 on MetaCritic because there'll be idiot reviewers who will give lower scores just to stick out I personally think it should get a 88 (based on From's ability in this kind of genre)
It's gonna be 89, print screen this because I will be right by + or - 2 percent.
Yi-Long, I think the main audience of Souls games is mature enough to even appreciate the differentiation from the Souls series after 3 entries. Bloodborne is a truly welcome change and since I've played the alpha I'm sure people will like it.
i say 8.9 metascore, but just because of somr idiot sites bashing thisamazing game! to me this game is a 9-10 material.
lots of 9.0 and 9.5 and i hate souls games
I have no idea. How can I possibly put a number to something I haven't experienced? The only other way of getting a decent idea of what it's like (in it's entirety) is by watching Youtube playthroughs, and I'm not going to do that. It will be good because I trust the developers. That's all I need to know.
the question is how you could put a number to something you experienced?I forgot how kids are going to compare then...I m wrong sorry...
Metacritic 8.7 Polygon 6
And Forbes will give it a 3 because it's not on a MS console.
9/10 - 10/10
From what I've seen and read, I think 10s are definitely within reach. We'll just have to wait and see. The game looks great, can't wait to play it.
8.0-9.5 But I couldn't care less for other peoples opinions.
You know damn well it'll get 5s and 6s from some sites, I said Edge would give Bloodborne a 10
Hahaha are we really doing this?
Yep now place your bets I'm saying 90+ meta more exact 92 meta ( one point higher then dark souls 2 )
Critics loved the souls series, so I think it continues here, unless something went seriously wrong. My only curiosity, is if the rebranding and tweaking of gameplay will widen that audience. The Souls series has built its reputation as an ARPG with tuff encounters, where you die reload and retry. I think them may be aiming to widen the widen the lore with this new installment, as an attempt to sell to a wider audience.
Now are we previewing reviews? Cool.
SARCASM--------you know there's only 12 weapons in the first 40 hours..........or too long for a game
IGN 6.5/10 Too Long..
They gave Alien Isolation a 6 or something for being too long and too difficult. I wouldn't be surprised to see this get docked as well.
Polygon 6/10 'Not enough weapons...' Digital Foundry: 'This game is essentially broken. Out of our 40+ hours of playing the game, the framerate dropped to 29fps three times. This is simply unacceptable for a AAA PS4 exclusive title.' Eurogamer: 5/10 'It was too hard...' Dualshockers: 'It's a Godly game with infinite re-playability. The greatest game of any generation.' (Sorry Abriael) 11/10 Ok, that's enough now, I'm getting dafter.
9/10 Avg. over 100 reviews. A few 8s, around ninety 9s, and a few 10/10 Solid reviews for all. Polygon will give a surprise 9. Even thought the game is mean and bloody, their score will reflect the greatness too.
Lol it's stupid but ill play Ign- "it's to hard" "too much blood" 6/10 Edge-"we only played 40 hrs and didn't beat it or play online or the chalice dungeon but replay value seems minimum 5/10
Lol! IGN -PVP was against strangers and they were always red. 4/10
LOL LOL OMG IT'S SO FUNNY! HAHAHA LOOOOOOOLLLL !!!!11234
8 and 9s, and maybe the odd 10.
Greatest game ever made. This game is going to move more PS4s than Amazon. It is going to be gigantic.
78 on metacritic is my guess
Metacritic 65 due to a bizarre number of 3/10 scores deducting points for things no other games ever get penalized for /s
I expect mostly 9s and 10s honestly. Reviewers have all mostly loved the Souls games and gave them high praise and Bloodborne's framework is that of a true Souls game even though it doesn't have the Souls name in it. From what I have seen it will have everything I love about a Souls game and add a bunch of new mechanics on top of that to differentiate it from the rest of the series and I think reviewers will love that about the game.
I'm putting my money on a solid 87 metacritic. IGN: 6.0 "Not enough water."
Meracritic rating of 91 after 1 week.
Hey poster of this and/or vgrhq.com - Be sure to do this with every major release now... oh you won't? I wonder why...
What are you talking about?
Come now, don't act like that, my comment is rather simple is it not? Where's the predict articles for BF: Hardline, FF:Type 0, Mario Party 10? However if its simply just for BloodBorne... well something obvious is showing no?
Obviously Bloodbourne is one of the most anticipated games this year, especially this month so it makes sense pick on this than Hardline, Type-0 is a remaster so we already know how it is, and Mario party 10 doesn't break the Mario party formula too much so no need to speculate. Hardline got a beta so people pretty much know what to expect. Bloodbourne however is taking the familiarity of the souls series and changing it around a bit (no magic or shields, guns, different setting/atmosphere, faster paced) so of course out of all releases this month there would be an article like this for bloodbourne. What did you think the author was trying to say?
10/10 anyone who dare to give it lower score I will find them and i will kill them
You better make Andrew House happy
I expect low scores like 6/10 from: - IGN - Edge - Polygon - Gamespot - Eurogamer Metacritic will be around 80-85%
I'm going strictly on its lineage, it should score no less than an 8. But of course, since it's a console exclusive it'll be reviewed and scrutinized lot harsher.
What does being exclusive have to do with the reviews of a game? Plants VS Zombies scored the same on PS4&X1 even when it was exclusive to X1 6 months earlier. Please explain I don't get it.
Business is dirty. Exclusives are just that. Not available on other consoles, which opens the door for under the table dealings and the buying of reviews. This is free enterprise and all is legal, provided you're discreet in your actions. We cannot pretend that this doesn't happen. Its as routine as paying a toll when you drive over a bridge or through a tunnel. Its SOP for big business.
@SpinalRemains138 So you are saying all good reviews will be bought?
GMP, No, I said nothing of the sort. Reading is hard.
10... Next question.
I am buying this game know matter what! 2 out of 10 day one with any DLC available. I can not wait for this game.
The SJW media will give a low score, because: - too much blood - the main character should be a woman only - the majority of the demons are male - too difficult - it's not Assassin's Creed - should be a moba instead - it's exclusive for PS4. :D
95-85 is my guess. Will probably be a 10/10 for me personally based on what we've seen so far.
Fourthy twelve eleven billions
Believe me...This is a game that fans of it completely ignore any kind of review....I and many others completely ignore all ''gaming journalism'' fiasco...I think that we should rate them too for their work...I rate some gaming sites 3/10 for the way they review games...
I have a long time to read a ''gaming journalism'' article well made...well done!
I'd say 92 or something
Is gonna be between 8.0 or 8.5/10. But im hoping for 9's and 10's hopefully. The game looks great so far
I know in my bones that Bloodborne will be resting at a 92/93 on Metacritic a week after it has released. If it scores higher than that, I'll be very, very pleasantly surprised. At this point, with the pre-review buzz and the leaked early impressions and Edge pseudo-verdict, the game will in no way land less than a 90.
This what I hope for, 93 average.
