Just a quick heads up for those of you who need a game's strengths and weaknesses quantified by numeracy: Eurogamer.net and an as-of-yet-unnamed-US-site will be publishing their respective LittleBigPlanet reviews tomorrow night at midnight UK time.
There are 3 Reviews out .. atm. Lol.
In English on the internet? Where?
Man, after MGS4 with over 60 perfect 10s, will LBP be the next game to score that many? To attain one of the highest metacritics of all time? It sure will!
HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!!! Sack-boy has taken over my Avatar!!! ;-D Let's hope LBP P*sses all over Micro$ofts xBox 360!!! ;)
X360 has no AAA games all it has are RROD REsistance 2 and LBP are both AAA However queers of war is just what x360 has LBP will destroy crap box 360 this FALL
You're name was cooler when ya had the CEO guy for an avatar. Put it back! Puts more character behind your posts!
well we know that its going to be a high score since the reviews are out so early
I really don't trust Eurogamer for my PS3 reviews. Their previous history concerns me.
giving MGS4 the same score as Pure (both 8/10) makes it very obvious that you cannot trust them in their reviewing system. IMO eurogamer is too concerned about the entertainment (traffic) on their site, rather than in true gamer's interests. And please don't tell me that they're just a tough site.. because that theory got crushed when they gave Halo3 a `10.. not saying that Halo3 is a bad game.. just saying that it did not deserve a 10 if they were so hard to impress.. As of now.. the only website trustworthy has become IGN.. they seem to love all platforms and all games.. that's what i like to see.
i'm more interested in what negatives and nitpicking they do
@Bullettoothtony - Yeah I agree with you there, IGN seem like they give unbiased (but usually quite harsh reviews), so I tend to see what score they give more than other sites. Although even if LBP gets 5/10 I'm still going to get the game, because I don't buy games based on review scores, but on my personal opinion by watching trailers, gameplay, live demos etc.
holy s... I played this game like the whole day with my mates, and we had fµcking fun. Clearly worth 10/10 , imo !
Well I'm pretty sure the scores will be high. Though this is a day one purchase for me regardless of what the critics think.
Im expecting a 9/10 for Eurogamer, even tho they dished out beta codes.
I think they will give a 10. I never seen an article tell us when the reviews are coming out. Must be something for a special score which is a 10.
3 10/10 games from IGN in a year? Make it 4? If not it'll be 9.9/10. :).
they better all be 10/10 or im head hunting some reviewers -.-
OPM UK had the very first review... and then 3 or 4 others had reviewed it... check in the reviews section :S
Thats just a few hours from now =)
No. It's Sunday night/Monday morning 12am UK time
time zones Confuzed me!!
Uh oh...Eurogamer *thunder, lightning, wolf howls, baby starts crying*
Wernt they the ones who gave a crappy MGS4 review ???
yep, they gave MGS4 a 7 out of 10
Got to be.
I'd be surprised if it was anything else, tbh.
what if it got a 9.9? you'd be surprised if it got a 9.9? what're you trying to say? its not good enough for 9.9?
It's raining 10's....LBP FTW!!!! :)
I don't trust review scores. They mean nothing to me for so many reasons, the least of which being the whole "paid for" aspect. I use a review's content however to help inform myself, then make my own decision. I suggest you all do the same, for ALL games. EDIT - Disagree fairy eh? Be a man and tell me why I should let someone else's opinion be greater than my own?
I don't look for scores either, to me they don't mean much, even though you can usually assume anything that is 7 or higher is pretty decent. The thing people should be looking for is the review underneath the score. That's what will tell you about all the flaws(if any) and the game play experience.
i dunno about not trusting them i mean would u pick up a game thats 1/10? i wouldn't. last gen i used reviews as a base line, anything above a 7 was fair game for me to try atleast once. if i liked it i kept it, if not i returned it simple as that. games get reviewed for a reason. unless u only buy games that are 9.5-10 range, reviews are only guidelines for what you should try and what u should stay away from. even if LBP scored an 8 average on all reviewing sites id still try it because i like the whole costume thing.
Yeah I agree. Especially after I heard Konami gave restrictions to the reviewers for their game MGS4. They pretty much said do not mention all the negatives. Once I heard that, I never looked at a review score the same.
That's about it. And understandable considering how much flack Capcom got for their game installation, even though it significantly cut down loading times.
THAT tipped you off Knight? Really? Weird, I was tipped off when reviewers were caught being given swag bags to review Halo 3, which came out well before MGS4. You must have missed that part... BTW, I'm all for hiding the story spoilers that Kojima wished to keep secret, which I was told was most of the restriction anyways. Spoiling the ending of 60 years of continuity would be a d1ck move.
OnslaughtX just phrased it nicely for what I was about to say.
Actually they also said not to talk about the horrendous loading and the long and boring movies. It's funny how other games don't get the same treatment. I know Mass Effect had points taking away because of the loading and that was only a fraction compared to MGS4.
10 out of 10
1up is going to be the unnamed america source. And it will probably be an A+.
we've paid the money. lol
at least 9 or higher out of 10. This game appeals to so many people.
So.... Reviews for another REAL next gen AAA PS3 exclusive go live tomorrow??? Nice!!!
Will this be the ps3's second AAA exclusive game? I hope so, PS3 has really been getting it's azz handed to them lately in every respect. TGS, LIVE, Prices, ports (Bioshock), losing exclusive titles, (FF, Tekken)
Well actually it'll be the first PS3's AAA over 9 out of 10 average rated game. The other PS3 exclusive has more cutscenes then gameplay and should be rated as an AAA BluRay movie.
Does a system have to have triple A games to be considered a great system? And does said games all have to be triple A to be good at all? Cuz seriously, what do you guys really consider triple A?
Talking to mart/pog, waste of time
Mart's just bitter that the last 360 exclusive to get above a 9 was released last November.
Ps2 had many exclusive AAA games Xbox 360 has many AAA games. PS3 has one. AAA mean a metacritic score of 90 or above and great sales. And yes it does matter. The only people that would convince themselves it doesn't matter are the people that only own a ps3.
lol dumb bots obviously want MGS4 still. They keep talking about it all the time, Bots just jerk off to getting MGS4 in their dreams.
Maybe it only matters for the major fanboys who are calling out systems for not having games that don't have 100s all around. For the general gamer, I can assure you it doesn't matter. And I can also tell you it doesn't matter for me. Which is why I bought games like Call of Duty 3, Mobile Suit Gundam Crossfire. Because Reviews are only meant to give you an opinion. There are soo many underrated games that are really great! But because of sites like metacritic, those games are considered crap. All I know is, if I like the game, to me it's Triple A.
MGS4 is better than entire gaming library of trash box 360 u mean GAYLO GAYLO GAYLO 3 at 600p everyone remove the bubbles of motherfuccing FART at XFAG KINGS MGS4 got 10/10 from IGN. No crap box games will ever get that
it makes em mad cuz they know this is a huge gaming phenomenon that's got goty2008 written all over it and it's gonna make [email protected], banjo bazooye, vivapinrata and their entire crappy lineup feel sooo... limited ciao xb!tches, it was nice to meet yawll LOL
So if a game has 89.4% average, then what...? lol. I think 3 PS3 games have averages that are 88-89, funny isn't it? And agree and bubbles for you hellangelzx. I buy the games that I enjoy. For example I'm a fan of the 2K series for basketball and none of them ever had 90 or above averages. I still buy them.
you people do know that a review is just some guys opinion
Apparently you aren't allowed to say that around here. Bubs for you.
I expect a lot of 8's and few low 9's
the uncomplete game has been getting 10/10 and it has been raising the bar for other game already
From metacritic. lots of 10's lots of 9's. 1 or 2 8's.
or.. a lot of 10s, a few 9.5s ...sigh and perhaps some 8s wow. now I know why Obama likes correcting people ^_^
As bad as EuroGamer is, i got my LBP Beta code from them. They had 5,800.
Little Big Planet is the first game I have ever played and wondered how could anyone not give this a 10?
Its mainly because of the hype factor. As much as this game deserves a 10 or even a 11, they dont want to be conceived as a site that is overwhelmed by the mass hype and appeal of this game as a whole. its usually nothing personal though.
Little Big Planet is a game that deserves 11/10 i think it's the best game ever created. now Sony has them all ... Motorstorm - Best Off Road Racing Game Gran Turismo - Best Racing Simulation Resistance 2 - Best First Person Shooter (along with COD4 and soon KZ2) God of War - Best Action Game (along with Uncharted) Little Big Planet - Best Platformer ever (forget Mario) Wipeout - Best Futuristic Racer Metal Gear Solid 4 - Best Stealth Game ... damn, so many great games! good time to be a ps3 user ;-)
I'am expecting they score the game between 9.8-10.
ONLY ON PS3! X-B!TCHES!!
Wow, didn't know I needed a story to tell me there will be more stories tomorrow with numbers in them, but thanks for the "heads up"... BTW, LBP is on pre-order and, yes, that is saying something for me cause I never pre-order.
but if they rate it a 9 or 10, it would say something about the game itself.
