Those among you who are eager to get your hands on Little Big Planet may have noticed a few early reviews hitting the Web over the past couple of days. So where's 1UP's review?
I was starting to wonder if this was the case for the review. I am sure its going to get a really good score but we shall see. Now, back to the GAF official LBP thread of awesomeness.
Give them time. The online multi-player is already being flagged - what specifically, we're not sure on. Just that multi-player "could" be a problem. That and the fact that it doesn't have homo-erotic space marines will probably leave the game at a solid 8. Honestly, I am sick of game journalists; who aren't really journalists - no degrees, no code of ethics, nothing - and their opinions. That's all the majority of these people are, fanboys with opinions. I get enough of that on N4G. Haven't read a review in like 3 months and have been more than happy with all of my purchases. Besides, a game is more fun if no one tells you "how" or "why". Just my two cents. - C P.S. Little Big Planet looks to be one of the most innovative and fun games of the year. I'm very excited to play it. Look, I'm a game journalist now! :)
just give it a 10/10 (A+/A+) or a 9/10 (A-/A+) and call it a day, no1 will look at you differently...Its when u dont give it a 10/10 (A+/A+) or a 9/10 (A-/A+) thats when people will scream and holler =p
1up is waiting for a check from microsoft.
I've seen them blast 360 games, so mission failed. They hate EVERYONE equally.
lol you took what i said seriously.
I hate to agree with you, but it's true they do tear in to Xbox games pretty bad. On the 1up show they tear into M$ more than Sony.
See?! We're agreeing on something! Do you people SEE what 1up does?! To quote Lewis Black, the worlds smartest Jewish comedian. "THAT'S NOT FvCKING NATURAL!!!" Actually I'm not sure that's one of his quotes...but it really should be.
Damn you took what I was going to say. There waiting for Sony's check to clear the bank. Good job on the early SDF deflect to make sure no one else said it. I'm sure your superiors will be pleased, maybe you can actually be on top this time eh? =)
Blah blah blah, look for excuses to rate it down. Blah blah blah, trying to be different. If everyone else can review it, so can they.
lol...took the words out of my mouth
That would be a first for them then. I know it will still get a good review but if they are going to do this then they need to go back in time and amend all the reviews they have made mistakes on. Regardless of the review, it won't bring next week around any sooner and that's what is killing me!
1UP reviews are like a cake...but made of hate. It doesn't matter the system, but they have to lovingly bake a lot of hate into everyone one of their review's pillow spongy center. So don't be surprised if the hate cake is short a slice! And has literally sh!t for frosting. Fondant is too expensive.
Where is Gamespot LBP review?
If Sony were sensible, they didn't send them a review copy and they'll have to buy it themselves come release day.
I see one of the 3 reviewers at EGM giving LBP a 7.5 or an 8.0 ... Wait and see. Another will give it a 9.0 and the last will give it a 10.0 I'm guessing, of course, but reality is a sharp nail to sit on.
Edge 1up Gamespot GamesRadar someone else im forgetting..
Gametrailers.com is the other website you are missing :)
This is why I love 1up
just maybe they want to review retail versions of the game! Maybe they want to be more like you and me! Maybe they need a week or two to get the playing time online to give it a fair judgement chill i do want a Socom review
if you watch there 1up show they were playing the game, and loving it. this is bull sh!t if that box had a xbox only on it, it would be a different ballgame. The review would have been out by now. They are just looking for a excuse to take a couple of points off of it.
Who cares anyway about 1up's review. The website is crap and we all know they'll give a lower score that the game deserve because its PS3. Sorry 1UP, people don't like your website.
And that's something bots and droids can agree on! "We found one pixel out of place! C-" They're reviews aren't too far from that.
lol... i bet 3 people asked about it on the forum..
Gamepro gave it 5stars outta 5 stars lol
Trying to find a flaw so they can bump the score down...
So at the moment its a 10, but 1up are looking for a server problem or a glitch in the category filing system to take 2 points off it. Dont believe me, we'll see. I'll be glad to admit I'm wrong if they give it the score it deserves which would be 10 on a 1-10 scoring system.
Since when do people care if you don't have your review copy
But the multiplayer servers are not up yet...so that is why 1up has not reviewed it yet. There are people who actually have the retail copy of the game. That final patch will be released next year. Did not the beta test fix the online multiplayer issues? The patch after release is for multiple people creating levels online.
what a joke we can't find anything wrong with the game right now, but lets wait to see if we get a little lag so we can slap a 8 on it
Honestly, I am sick of game journalists; who aren't really journalists - no degrees, no code of ethics, nothing - and their opinions. That's all the majority of these people are, fanboys with opinions. I get enough of that on N4G. Haven't read a review in like 3 months and have been more than happy with all of my purchases. lol or ex gamestop employees
They gave me a beta key :P But this does seem like a weak reason. If they're so concerned then review it like an MMO with a re-review in a month. Then again so what, LBP has done enough to justify it's hype and more on top. People looking at it will see that and buy it regardless of any poor reviews. Then again, it's worth remembering that thus far LBP hasn't had any bad reviews even from sites with something of a history for harsh marking of PS3 exclusives which dare to swerve from the FPS path (EG I'm looking at you now).
It's probably a very heated debate down at Ziff Davis considering how much Microsoft pays for adds. It's a debate between their love of games, their professional ethics and their "need" for money (especially if you consider ZD is pretty much bankrupt).
I call BS on this one. Greed reviewers are to damn busy playing it to care about readers expectations over a review. And while you can actually play LBP (for free) why would you want to go to the computer and type a decent review? Just upload some crap excuse with two paragraphs and will give you more one or two week to play while you been paid to work. A ninja in the art of escaping the work or a sign of LBP junkies to come? You choose.
So maybe they are confused and don't know how to review a, not an actual game, kind of game. Critical success/sales flop? We shall see.
because sony forgot to pay them oh! yeah oh! yeah sony pays to now don't go swallowing moth balls nah!
Who cares about 1Up? Are you really going to make a purchase decision based on 1Up?
1UP is very biased but I think they'll throw a token 9.5 or so for this one just to try and keep some credibility.
I do respect when reviewers wait for the final code versus basing it off a unfinished code which happens time to time. The game is fantastic with it's flaws, hopefully the servers will be giving a boost by release since the slow down was the only negative thing I have to say about this game.
LOL who cares about 1UPs review ? Havent we seen enough proof from the excellent scores LBP has gotten ? Im one PS3 owner whos seen enough reviews on LBP now to know XFLOPS have seen LBP isnt the hype and flop they was hoping for. Only the XFLOPS are prob more keen to see 1UPs review in hope that they score it low.
if this game scored a 10/10 from every site in the the world. It's stupid looking and I don't play with sacks,(or Snakes for that matter) that sh1t's for you gay ass Sony troll kids.
Only review I take as first priority is IGN. Since theirs is out I'm fine.
LLOL game sucjs. boy and i drunk;!!!
this is a bullshit excuse. gamespot have a video review and they play it online THE FULL GAME. you can tell this because when they are looking at the cool levels on the planet they have there pod decorated with stuff only available in full game (so can't be the beta).
