One of the most eagerly anticipated PS4 exclusives is christened. Does it live up to everyone’s prayers?
Knew it would be good.
"There has never been gaming entertainment like this. It connects the deepest emotions with the highest emotions. Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture is miraculous. It is Rapturous." Just wow! This has my undivided attention now. The game length seems perfect to me as well.
I kinda sensed it would be a critic's darling. I'm still not sure if I will enjoy it
We're by no means what you would consider traditional "critics" at PS Nation, especially Keith. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and when I got an email saying "Never before have tears ran down my cheeks from pure emotion when I couldn't even really pinpoint one reason why because it was cumulative" I knew this was going to be something special -Glenn
that quote just confirmed my pre-order.. I didn't want any spoilers so I didn't read the review... Hopefully the game delivers! (I still have to play Journey, got it day 1 on ps4, just haven't played yet).
You the man, Torgo!
Whoa what this game is coming out already?
I know what you mean. I'm sitting here now still surprised when I remember that a new Metal Gear Solid game is coming out. EGTTR is another game that I remember taking note of what seems like so long ago, and here we are. I've been playing so much Arkham Knight this seems like the perfect palate cleanser! :) Super excited for the Mega Man Legacy Collection as well!
Playing this game will be just like to listen a Pink Floyd album.
Nicely put! Shine on You Crazy Diamond: Parts 1-5 on PS4 Spotify repeat, nice and low volume, throughout the whole game...heaven!
Can't wait until I pick up a PS4 and delve into this game. Seems more like a transcendental experience though haha
Yes. I am going to reserve now online. Hope to get the theme for my PS4.
a 9 from gamespot is a MUST BUY
I am not trying to be against this review site however this game sits on a average review score of 77/100 and a PS website gives it a 10/10.. Does this sound a little funny? I wouldn't be judging this games quality on what this sites thinks. Looks good from what I have seen but ill read another review just to be sure.
Take your pick. How about a 9/10 from Gamespot? Some reviewers will not appreciate the pace - there are some that just want to run and gun and they will mark this down as a result, just like they did with Journey. Others will recognise that there are different games for different tastes and review accordingly.
Gamespot also gave TLOU an 8/10, does that mean there correct? I just find it funny that a PS website gave this game a 10/10 putting it up there with Bloodborne and Witcher 3? Not sure what type of standards they have but its a bit odd that a PS website gave a PS game a 10/10 when on meta its sitting on a 76..
^Yes, it does mean 'there' (sic) correct, if that's 'there' opinion. I don't know why I'm bothering, but the scores of games in different genres cannot be directly comparable; it's common sense really... As an aside, does anyone else find the illiterate trolls the most annoying? :|
You're trying to cast doubt on anyone being able to rate the game so high in an objective fashion. It's a passive way of trolling the game by saying the only people who would give it good scores are those biased towards Sony anyway.
The many times you have accused other web sites of being bias against Sony and here is a perfect example of where your conspiracy theories would actually work. A website dedicated to Sony rating a Sony game high. And yet, you can't see it? You want to accuse Nation of trying to cast doubt on people? How exactly would he do that when half the comments here that are using commons sense are saying the same thing.
I love my PS4 and I'm excited for this game but I do have to at least acknowledge its just a bit on the biased side for a site dedicated to Playstation to be putting out reviews. That's like reading a 10/10 review for a xbone exclusive on xbox.com its not like you're really going to get an impartial and fair review. That being said I understand this game is getting really favorable reviews across the board so that's a really good thing.
Silly reasoning. So we disregard ALL reviews for exclusives for games where the site is Playstation or XBOX related? You said it yourself, you love your PS4, they probably love their PS4 too, so instead of stealth trolling, you could have used the reveiw from a person with a VERY close thought process to yourself (from the minute information you gave) as a great gauge about the game. Alas, the fanboy inside of you got the best this time.....
I'm the author of this review. I fully understand the reticence some may have in believing that PS Nation would not be biased toward Sony's products, particularly exclusives. Perhaps if some were more familiar with the podcast we produce and its hosts Glenn Percival and Josh Langford, who also steward the website and edit the written content, they'd know that we never give anything a pass because of its association. My review and score are honest and truthful representations of my reaction to the material. Further, in the few years I have been reviewing for PS Nation this is possibly only the second time I've given a perfect score. Finally, all of us at the site are gamers. We aren't professional journalists and we aren't paid. We do this for the love of gaming.
