This is why Gametrailers rocks. Brutally honest reviews

topgeareasy2915d ago

they don't care about fun, to them it's innovation and originality over fun

despair2915d ago

yea i only go to gametrailers for the vids, they lost me when they gave MW2 GOTY last year.

Unicron2915d ago

Innovation and originality. Except when it comes to Call of Duty and Halo, natch.

colonel1792915d ago

you are wrong. Gametrailers care about Hype and Money (excused as innovation and originaliity). They don´t know how to do reviews, at least this gen they lost it badly.

beans2915d ago (Edited 2915d ago )

Halo Reach is looking like a really good epic game. I assume your talking about all the Halo's in the middle.

OT: While some reviews are helpful I tend to judge for myself the hard way. The game looks fun so i will pick it up down the road at some point.

Unicron2915d ago (Edited 2915d ago )

Reach IS looking like a great game. I have a ton of respect for Halo/Bungie, and find their games fun, but not something I'm a massive fan of (IE, I'll play it if it's around, but I don't need to go out and buy my own personal Xbox for it).

No no, my issue is still with how much review sites flip flop on the necessity of originality and innovation in sequels, and how some get a free pass while others get slammed. SMG2 is a prime example. Regardless of how great a game it is, it re-uses a lot of concepts and even assets. And suddenly innovation and originality as review score necessities are tossed out the window.

I hate to harp on it, but the UC2/MW2 review debacle pretty much covers it.

Thank god. I tried the game and after reading IGN's review, thought I didn't know what good gaming was... Glad to hear Game Trailers backing up my feelings for this mediocre game...

Chuk52915d ago

@Alcon Caper.
You haven't even played the full game. The demo really isn't indictive of the full game its much better. That being said, typical pretentious attitude from GT. If a game isn't innovating, it's not good enough, which is bull. 7.7 isn't a bad score so how you call that mediocre is beyond me.

Alcon Caper2915d ago

Point taken. Although the demo left a sour taste in my mouth, I'll wait for more reviews to come out. I was originally gungho about this game, but now I'm a little more reserved. Let's see what other reviewers say and I'll maybe reconsider...

7.7 isn't baad. But other 7.7 games i've played are a bit ho-hum...

AEtherbane2915d ago

GT cares more about graphics and innovation than they do the fun factor, too many good games get panned by GT, then again, good games really shine as well.

brianleppez2915d ago

You know when GT awards a game 9 or above, it truly deserves it.
inFamous comes to mind.

OhReginald2915d ago (Edited 2915d ago )

Yep gametrailers rock for giving MW2 game of the year instead of giving it to uncharted 2 or demon's souls.

Unicron is just another sony fanboy who bashes on Halo any chance he gets. Funny how he never mentions Killzone 2 which lacks zero innovation or Uncharted which is just Gears and Tomb Raider.

Same ole stupid sony fanboy logic.

Unicron2915d ago (Edited 2915d ago )

Yup. That's why I got 40 disagrees the other day for saying that the aiming in KZ2 is essentially broken, and the Assault class needs some major rebalancing for MP.

Also how much better UC2 online was pre update 1.05.

Funny thing is, I'm not even talking about Halo. I'm referring to REVIEW STANDARDS, NOT THE GAMES IN QUESTION. Totally different subjects. Besides that, not everyone loves Halo. To me the mythology is better than the actual games. Get over it.

@Halo3 MLG Pro

It wouldn't hurt to do some research before you start accusing people.

On topic: This is why IGN is sh!t. They always have crap reviews and ALWAYS give high profile games 9+ scores. God I hope that site goes to the dogs. I wouldn't be surprised if that site takes in bribes.

7.7 for presentation?! wtf the presentation is better then that

I'm picking this up later this month. Was a big Transformers fan as a kid and i heard this is better than Transformers Armada on the PS2

xYLeinen2915d ago


I agree, the review was good. But I feel the score was just a little low considering the stuff he said in the review. Ditto.

Prcko2915d ago

gametrailers YOU FAIL AGAIN!!!!

BigKev452915d ago

This game is about a 8.5 Very good game.
