CVG: 'The title is tracking beautifully on Metacritic, with a current average of 97/100'
Just like how U2 started out, then somehow it dropped to 96 :( Congrats to EA and bioware for making a great MULTIPLAT game ;)
Forget EA, they had nothing to do with this title.
Ooh, looking good ME2. Since I get no SWTOR any time soon I might as well check this one out, after all I really liked the story in the first one. About the score, I don't think the 97 will stay, only 5 reviews are out. I'm betting it's a +90 game though.
A review round up based on 5 reviews? Really? In agreement with the above user, let's give it some time before go talking about the score. Not to mention, we all knew this game was going to be good and rate int he mid 90's. It's Bioware for goodness sakes.
Game isn't out yet so wait for it to be released cant really base that score on the few select sites that were given review copys.
Downloaded it 3 days ago and finished it today. Its a nice and decent game. overrated IMO.
are you freaking kidding me when its got over 50, or even over a 100 like uncharted 2 then do a round up, CVG are laughable
With the last review added.
uncharted 2 104 reviews metacritic score 96 just shows you how toilet journalism is from certain sites....try harder CVG
Well deserved. :)
Yeah A great multiplat <<<<NOT>>> ; AVAILABLE ON Playstation 3 :)
yeah but the best version of mass effect 2 <<<<IS>>> on pc ;)
Then you have got to play it on the PC. If you cannot afford a decent PC, then by all means, play it on the 360. The best version of this game will most definitely be on PC as was the first ME. I loved it on PC. Played the first one on the 360 and a year later bought it for the PC and wow, what a difference. It looks and plays much better on PC IMHO. And for the nay sayers out there, I would be saying the same thing if it was a PS3/PC exclusive. Bioware games just work best on PC.
Sorry droids just keep saying to yourself "MS isn't Windows and don't benefit from Windows exclusives" maybe if you smoke enough crack and sniff enough smurf berries it will come true. Mass Effect 2 on Windows and Xbox... score 1 for Sony :D
The PC version is the best version for those of us with a gaming PC. There is something about having peace of mind knowing my gaming PC won't RROD...
totaly agree i played dragon age at my brothers on the ps3 it seemed like a good game so i got it for the pc and was blown away what people need to rember bioware use to be a pc developer first
No offense but Dragon Age was a game which was made for PC, and subsequently ported to consoles. Its control layout and tactics only have a lasting effect on PC and were by far and between superior. Its different in that the experience would be largely the same on both systems for Mass effect apart from the graphics. You only need to read the reviews.
A review round up on 5 reviews ? seriously?
Well you have to realize right now it beats uncharted 2 in scores but in 2 weeks it will be on a 9.3-9.4 probably so now they to try to rub it in with 5 reviews.
@ above UN2 - 96 ME2 - 96
UC2 - 104 reviews ME2 - 6 reviews ;)
why do you people care about Scores? reviews = opinion that are different from your opinion, review scores are a way to get hits from fanboys, and money from publishers. when your a "gamer" you know what game is good for you, and not listen to other reviews "opinions". this is how i buy MassEffect 2 - its Bioware (one of the best Wrpg developers) - I played MassEffect 1 and it was awesome, - saw a lot of ME2 gameplay videos, and saw a lot of improvements. Do i really need a review score to tell me what to buy? NO only Fanboys use review scores. also, I never saw a ps3 game review round-up on CVG, all i see on CVG is PS3 is doomed articles, i think CVG are really showing their real color.
"only Fanboys use review scores" What are you talking about? That's a ridiculous, silly and stupid statement. Review scores in general are great indicators of a game's quality. The fact that you might disagree with certain scores doesn't alter the fact that a game which scores 9+ is very likely to be enjoyed by a majority of gamers interested in the respective genre. Rather than ignore the scores, I'd recommend reading the reviews to find out what's behind the high or low scores, sometimes the things that impress or bother reviewers are not an issue for many gamers interested in a particular game (such as lack of originality, linear progress rather than open world etc). As a general indicator however, review scores serve their purpose well, and are not only used by fanboys. That fanboys use them in "ohhh my game beats yours by 0.1 in metacritic"-arguments doesn't change that.
"6 - @Milo Garret Wrong mate, Review scores are a way to get hits from fanboys, and money from publishers. i choose my games from my own review "opinion" " I agree with Sam, and partially agree with yours. The actual review, not the score "in general are great indicators of a game's quality" If there was no score, there is no ammunition for the cesspool of a generation of "gamers" to spread hate with. People don't read the review, they read the conclusion and look at the score and think they know more about the game than the people who played it/made it. Score is meaningless especially since everyone doesn't use the same scale, thus making it uneven. Anyways, that's just my 2 cents also let me add, on topic. 5 reviews is indeed not worthy of a roundup, but c'mon, comparing to Uncharted 2? First off, the article isn't claiming that it's going to be the highest rated game on Metacritic and 2nd of all, the highest rated game this gen isn't Uncharted 2, it's GTAIV.........highest rated exclusive is SM:Galaxy Please stop the hate
actually you gotta include PC score if you talking about GTA here as its multi platform. Just like Mass Effect 2 is. The PC got lower scores for 1 good reason it was released later and people realised just how not as great it really was. Don't use GTA as an example everybody knows that score is a complete fabrication. But if you really wanna go there take the average score of GTA IV and you get 95.5 over 3 systems. Mass Effect 2 will drop people can compare this to Uncharted all they like but bioware are not stupid they sent the game to the 6 company's who gave them almost perfect scores for the first game. Company's they knew would give them stupidly high scores. Why?? Well that nice high rating will boost sales of course! Its called Marketing people!!! I am not slating the game it may be a 96/100 game but on 6 reviews this is obviously a marketing ploy.
PS3 owners will get the superior PC version, just like MAFIA and ALIEN vs. PREDETOR. True droids??
"PS3 owners will get the superior PC version, just like MAFIA and ALIEN vs. PREDETOR. " It's spelled PREDATOR fool
no, this game will come to PS3 so if they want to wait they'll get it on PS3
Its great coming here and listening to the SDF crying. You guys just love to point out that youll play it on PC. We all know you wont. I have a top spec PC but I will still be buying this for the 360 for all the obvious reasons. What a load of sour losers. The 360 has a highly rated A+ game, GET OVER IT and stop your whining. On second thoughts dont, its a laugh reading it..
Not trolling or anything but what reasons? The only positive thing I can think of for the 360 version over the PC version is LIVE. But then again, it's single player only, yeah?
I guess you could say buying the game instead of pirating it lol. The only reason I would ever play on pc would be to pirate games.
Coming back to the topic....i think the only game that will beat this is dragon age 2
Wrong mate, Review scores are a way to get hits from fanboys, and money from publishers. i choose my games from my own review "opinion"
the game is pretty good (i have almost finished it), but for me as a hardcore RPG fan there are just too little RPG elements, i hoped for random generated weapons, that would fall out from killed enemies, but they used just a very basic linear weapon finding routine + linear upgrade system, which sux... also some levels are empty and dull, therefor i would personally give it a 8.5/10 max.
