White. Chalk-white. White as angels' wings. White buildings, white trees with white strains, white flower pots, white railings. If I did not know better, I would think that I was dead and in heaven. Everything is so white.
Ouch... so much for embracing innovation. This game should fall 8/10 or so... 6 seems low.
That gets a 6 from someplaces and a 9 from others. I think it`s pretty cool, judging by the demo.
Maybe the game has bugs. DICE has never made a game that wasn't broken on release day.
If there's one site you shouldn't trust too much it's Gamereactor. They hand out "strange" scores sometimes. It's nice that they don't follow IGN like most other sites but the problem is that they sometimes give games low scores because they didn't like the art direction etc.
Mixed reviews. check Beautiful Graphics. check New innovation. check All that's left is for Mirror's Edge to sell about 5 mil. and we have another Assassin's Creed (which I think sold $6 mil).
So basically, they rated this game down from having its own artistic design (white design)? How the hell can you rate something down over color palette? Its their game and they decide how the game looks? I mean if they wanted rainbow colors, it wouldnt be that hard. Games are made on computers, all they had to do was select and change color! Its like I said, game reviews are absolutely meaningless now. Very high double standards and hypocrisy in the world of gaming. Some games are totally brown and are fully overlooked. But when others developers try to do that, oh boy, bombarded to pieces.
To me the demo was game-of-the-year material. Too bad this game is showing signs of a one-trick-pony.
Just playing the demo for 10 minutes made me ill; maybe that's because I'm not use to the first person perspective.
Does anyone even know who Gamereactor is? The demo was impressive, so yeah I'm getting it.
this is the first game this gen that doesn't include gun gray and sh*t brown. That already sells me.
how much did they sell $6million for?
lol! That's what I said. They do that. I didn't even read the review but I knew they probably lowered the score for some stupid reason like the color palette. They are all a bunch of metrosexual art directors.
I was worried that it was 3-4 hours. I think for me this game will have plenty of replay value in time trials. though i'm hoping that the levels aren't as linear as the demo (there was a alternate roof you could jump to instead of static lining it but you got insta-killed you once you landed) and i never thought that the jumps in the demo were too hard to make on the first try. unless they made the demo way more forgiving then the final copy (which is entirely possible).
This game does not deserve a 6/10 according to that demo. More like an 8 to 10.
...as much out of the demo as some but I do feel if they had gone down a more realistic path in terms of art direction then I would have enjoyed it more. The sterile environment, whilst obviously in keeping with the games storyline, just didn't do it for me at all. It was dull and didn't feel alive. Other than the scripted characters and occasional pigeon the city came across as being deserted.
it just seems like alot of runing, and some combat, i think you guys are giving it to much credit. Alot of running in the game is not innovation... its just running. But the art direction is awesome, and if they kept that euphoric techno sountrack through out the whole game, i might rent it.
I'm not a fan of this game, never was. I do think that this game doesn't deserve a score that usually bad movie games get.
and to be honest...it hurts my eyes after playing it...the color is too straining with red and blue trimming, it just not healthy to your eyes...this time, with this game, I'll believe my parents telling me that video game will ruin your sight...
I agree with the eye strain comments. The bloom is very high in this game. The white brightness is to much for my eyes.
played it till 1 in the morning.
Assassin's Creed got very mixed scores. This game will be no different. Some will love it, others will hate it. Stuff like this happens.
the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive,the game was so repetitive.
^^^ lmao nice one
That's why I sold it. ~.~
Good choice, it`s shouldn`t have been release until now and it`s should have stayed exclusive to the PS3.
AssasSin's Creed was great and most games are repetitive.
my god,play it for minute and you'll say it's an 8-9 or more game I see he didn't like the art direction and whine so much about everything being white,that's strange,cause the art rocks,the game is a breath of fresh air,it kinda remind me of jet grind radio that's your taste gr,not a review,learn how to review epic fail gr
It just seems that they suck at the game and gave it a bad score because they could not execute the movements right
Did they like pay attention to the story? It is part of the story? OMG. I played the demo and it was really intense!! After buying 6 or 7 games in 1 month and a half I thought I was done but this might be another before the end of year... :( Wallet, hurts!
I play the demo and its defiantly not a 6..Its a 4 Nah J/K Its a 9 for me and since i think for myself. I am buying this game first day stuff the the reviewers that don't like it.
6? wth.. this game is at least an 8 or 9.. must be xbots reviewers that are mad because ps3 was the lead platform.
Man this site is so great i cant stop laughing at people comments and how stupid people are. Good times!
Keep clutching those straws dj
Are you... serious?
YES WAY, i am so seriously so serious, you have no idea how seriously serious how serious i can seriously be.
he's serious.... seriously
i "seriously" DID think the same way as DJ. remember that the first trailor was on Sonys press conference. Its PS3 lead platform. 360 fanboys may have felt disheartened by the refusal of leading on 360. i'm serious either way, both sides of the camp should look foward to this
Then I played the demo like 2 more times, getting used to the controls and whatever, and I'm hooked. I give it a 9. Love it or Hate it I guess. Look at metacritic the scores so far are in the 90's. It can't be all that bad.
Your a not stop troll ain't you!!! You soon cry in the 360 threads when the PS3 fanboys are there. Ps. I know this is a PS3, 360 and PC thread, but damn stop it already.
but your really annoying dude.
and the X360 was the lead platform of "Blacksite area 51"... what's your point? oh yeah, you never have a point. Lol ;-)
Leave Zerodin alone hes a xbot with no games to play. That's why he spends all his time trolling on here. So sad to have nothing to play.
Pls Ban Meow.
I didnt like the demo at all. It seems like you do the same thing over and over again.
probably been reviewed using xbox 360 /sarcasm
maybe, because the ps3 freeze and they are waiting the patch or the servers are fu** up and they couldn't test the time trials /sarcasm
Thats funny Tat....Good one, bubbles for you.
well another assassin creed and banjo with mixed reviews
This isn't my kind of game, though a lot of people are really going nuts over this one.
gamereactor? come on.....
If you read some of teh review (it's translated so it doesn't always make sense), you'll see that the reviewer fell to his death a lot because he made mistakes. He also complained about fighting and "missing the reaction time" to steal weapons. A. You are running on rooftops, if you slip up, you die. B. You aren't supposed to fight groups of enemies and should avoid whenever possible even single enemies C. You suck at hitting a button at the right time. Basically, looks like this reviewer sucked at the game and blames the game for it. Ignore this one ladies and gents, wait for someone that actually can play the game correctly. I give this a solid 8.5/10 if the demo served as a correct indication.
What does that tell about you? a) You like a game, blame the reviewer to have a wrong opinion. b) So if a reviewer doesn't give a game a good score, you have to blame his or hers skills?
no, but when you tell me in a review that you are trying to fight, when the objective is to NOT fight then you're playing it wrong. It's just like older metal gear games. You can run and gun but you'll die more often than if you play it correctly and sneak past threats. You can't blame a game for doing what it tells not to do. Playing the demo alone confirms that you should always run from blues and fight only when you must. If there are many, you take them out one by one. This review admits to doing neither of these things and thus the player sucks. Does that mean the game isn't flawed? heck no, it means this person isn't a qualified judge.
He's not the only reviewer. Lots of reviewers (including those who gave the game nice scores) complained about that.
didn't i say so!! you can tell from 5min of this game that it will not make it. The gameplay is jumping and jumping and then jumping in a white (almost) empty city ..
Ouch, well no matter what they give it I enjoyed the Demo and still have it installed to my PS3, I plan to get this no matter what anyway. They can give it a 6 all they want but, to me I feel it's about an 8~ish. Some things could be improved upon I suppose, but more or less it's still an interesting game to the gaming library.
Seriously, this deserves an 8/10. The game is pretty good once you get used to it. :/
I'm still going to give it a shot. I liked the demo.
this is the only time i hav agreed with u the demo whas good i will give it a try no matter what reviews say the demo whas good
demo was fun while it lasted... (7 minutes)
Omg, why? The demo was super awesome!
this game is so great and fun, and the best are the time trials, i don't know in PSN but in xbl the first level the record is 00:48:00, that's crazy
Whoever added those alternate links needs shot. ADMINS: Please can you stop new accounts being registered for a short time? This is getting out of hand.
youn will see that the colour pallette is varied, has this guy just reviewed the demo?
I bet some fanboy would have said this was a PS3 flop etc etc. But since it's a multi-console game... how funny is that huh?
I tried reading the review but i just don't really get what they are saying. They talk about how sterile the game looks and the button layout is alright. But i don't know as for the rest of the review i just don't know what they're exactly getting at.
must have reviewed the 360 version
surely various shades of white at least makes a change from the various shades of grey in many games nowadays? I played the demo, and I wasnt great at the fighting, but i played it a few more times and really got into it. I thought it was pretty damn good, maybe "refreshing" would be a better word
is this out next friday in UK? cheers
