IGN AU review Prototype and award it 8.5/10
imma have to wait a few days to figure out to pick this up or not.
for a quick blast
worst case. you are out 5 bucks.
Demo comes out in a couple of days.
most demos are just horrible and don't showcase the end product very well.
Didn't IGN US give it a 7.5? That 1 point is a drastic difference between reviews from the same site. I was gonna go for Prototype, but after the mixed reviews, I am going for Red Fraction Guerilla... Infamous +RFG will be enough to last until decent titles start to show up.
I have beat this 3 game. my opinion Infamous 8.5 > Red faction 8> prototype 7 i really cant recommend protoype to anybody. not at full price.
its pretty ridiculous... but anyway why would you let reviewers make the decision for you? You wouldn't do it if it were music or a movie, why a video game? Video game reviews are nice, but they aren't the bible, read the reviews to get an idea what the game is like, not to assign it a score.
Just to let you know, i have a Xbox360 a PS3 and a WII. If you have a PS3, i recommend both. Two different game, Pure Style(inFamous) or Pure Gore(Prototype). If you have a 360, don't bother, get Prototype. Anyway, its a good year to be a gamer...
The proof, i'm a old gamer with really strange taste. I like resistance 1 but not the second. I like Two human but not Halo 3. I like Dark Sector but not Gears of War. Do you understand anything... The only reviewer i can follow, its me.
You won't regret picking it up - huge game
the us ign review dogged it for being too chaotic and too hard, lol.
It's curious how there is so much discrepancy between the two scores. How can one reviewer say its great and another decent? The visuals especially are a point of contention. There is so much discordance between IGN US's score and the rest of metacritic, I wonder if the reviewer hated the game and reflected that in the review. Currently the game is resting at 91% on metacritic for PS3 (sans US PS3 score). Fishy? I think so. Also, the IGN AU review was much more indicative of what to expect in the game and F. U. N. rather than a reflection on faults.
It looks a little dated in terms of graphics but the game play looks good. I don't go by scores but the videos and screen shots help guide me when it comes to rental status or purchase. This looks like a great rental to me.
erm just a quick poll, who is getting this game? Agree for YES:Disagree for NO. PS a demo would have been great jeez...
I'm going to try out the demo and see how's it like. I hope it's crap which it probably is by the looks of the reviews, so I don't have to pay or rent for this game. *Goes to play inFamous on the Triple*
So this game must not be fun...then
Too Human was good
Exclusive titles get a more focused review, than most multiplat titles. Not to mention exclusive titles based on review sites give charity scores. Despite a titles huge flaws.
I never trust reviews. Too Human and Haze both got beat up pretty badly in the reviews and I enjoyed them both a lot.
The reviews are very positive, it's averaging 93 on the PS3 metacritic. The IGN 7.5 is only listed on the 360 section and brings the average there down to 87. Still, the reviews are overwhelmingly positive at this stage. Don't let one so-so review influence your decision.
wait for more big sites. i honestly cant believe anybody would give it a score above 8.5. and 8.5 is a stretch.
played it have you?
I picked it up yesterday, I was lucky enough to have a gamestop where enough people pre-ordered. The game is amazing. Best $60 I have ever spent on a sandbox title.
That Prototype basicly is getting points taken off from a techincal point of view (textures not next gen enough) however, if you look at the game as a whole....there is so much going on screen with loads of vehicles, dozens of enemies and blood, gore, and particle effects that there just is not enough RAM left over for next gen textures. How do I know this, its because the developer Radical was talented enough to make Hulk:UD a 720p HD game on the original Xbox and very very few developers could do that last generation. So, I am sure they did the best they could with their current engine. But I think alot of gamers that give Prototype a chance will be shocked with the on screen activity compared to Infamous, its not even close, Prototype is doing so much more on screen. Also, to the guy who said how can one site give it a great score 8.5 and a sister site give it a decent score of 7.5. Hate to tell you but a 7.5=Good score so don't over dramatize things. Prototype is FUN and thats all that matters really? right?
that some people still wanna buy it and others are skipping
this AU reviewer is bias! they always give ps3 exclu a low score anf high on multipla i remember they give 7 or 8 on killzone 2 and and 7 i think for infamous...i been playin phototype on my 360 for a couple of days and i can say infamous is better its like a rush made game (if i carry heavy object like cars its like caring a cardboard box and others cars will pass tru it like a ghost! and lacks on physics)
