It's just a shame that that success had to be tempered by a somewhat overenthusiastic approach to the unpredictability inherent in the genre.
looks like too much fun for eurogamer.
A site doesn't give the game you are looking forward to a good score, you then systematically insult the site? Cool. Just for the books, though, since when was 7 a bad score?
7 is average, a rent at best. For those looking to purchase games, a 7 is a bad score.
Their Alan Wake review was even more hilarious.
Interesting how before this came out everyone was bashing Alan Wake score but now that this is out it's "eurogamer is lame site".
Cause actually Alan Wake is shaping up to be really good game.
Not the 360... or so they say. Not sure if anyone actually checked the statistics of Eurogamer yet though. But I know many people have used statistics to prove that Edge is biased against PS3 the most, and favors 360 the most.
even a freaking toddler can join the dots and figure it out. i guess.
Eurogamer fails once again. TGSI
No surprise from them guess it needed to be made by a european developer to get above 7 from them huh?
So mooey, when Alan Wake gets a 7/10 its just, but when ModNation gets a 7/10 its some how not as legit? Failure.
The difference is that Alan Wake is hyped, and people think that its hype is being reviewed instead of reality. So, when people see Wake get a 9, they think it's *fixed*. The same goes with Halo. If either were to get a 7, they'd think, "That sounds about right," because they assume that the 7 is based on reality since it doesn't serve the hype. In ModNation, there's not really much hype. It's just a kart racer...not even on the hype scale LBP had. So, when it gets a 9, people think, "Wow, it must really be good." They think this because they assume the reviews aren't serving the hype. So, when it gets a 7, they think, "That doesn't sound right...must be biased." I'm not saying I agree with either of these, but that seems to be the trend in public thinking. Typically, I listen to IGN. They've ticked me off before, and I never agree 100%, but they seem to be close enough for me to listen most of the time.
These guys really suck when it come to scoring games, they praise it in the review but git it a low score?
I don't understand why they get to put up 3 reviews that are all basically the same.
Joke review website
geez...do they like anything?
A spot of tea and crumpets perhaps?
They like to pretend that their reviews are anything more than laughably retarded.
I guess Eurogamer haven't changed even after N4G changed their layout :P.
What's even funnier is the Alan Wake review. A 7/10 as well LMAO!!.
/looks around. Ooooooooh, fancy.
Have you seen the amount of comments left on the Alan Wake review? 700 comments! That was ridiculous. I almost thought the 360 fanboys would retaliate and invade the MNR review,but they didn't thank god! Eurogamer are hit and miss with their reviews,sometimes they are the same as the majority of sites,other times they over score and other times they underscore. Either way,i'm still getting this game day 1,regardless of reviews.
You do realise this and the other review against modnation were uploaded by N4PS3G The biggest troll on this site.He makes it his job to constantly post the lowest scores for PS3 games and post 360 news.
great game a other than longish loading times can't find anything bad about the game yet these same persons who would rate a mario kart racer 9 plus will demote this when the kart racing is just as if only slightly less as good but with tonnes of options and customization never seen to this extent before in racing games.
eurogamer is an enemy of fun. period.
mgs4 got an 8/10 here and i remember it was the first review i saw. i don't trust this guys, they don't even use appropriate language.
