"No need to go around the bush: Halo: Reach is just what should have been Halo 3 at its output, three years ago." I fully agree with this.
Yes it's on meta.
I can't agree with that. When Halo 3 came out 3 years ago it had more features than most FPS games have today. It was extremely balanced, solid, and provided 4-play online co-op which many games don't do today. Halo 3 was, in my opinion a great game with a somewhat weak campaign only because of how lame it was for Johnson to be killed by a 343 guilty spark. But setting aside that, Halo 3 was a fantastic experience that deserved at the very least a 9. Gamekult is a terrible review site. They gave very low scores to Little Big Planet and Heavy Rain, and they gave MGS4 an 8. Gamekult are a French site, so they have no right to be reviewing war games. They'd probably give Halo Reach a higher score if it had a "surrender" mode.
This is the best Halo ever, however, scoring of the games are stagnatic with websites giving it a 10 or as low as 7.5 just for hits on their websites. The way I see it, it should of been at the highest Halo scored and the original was 9.5 avg, so this one should of been higher, ie 9.6 minimum and thats cause of the single campaing been so short, although really good.
You could see it this way too... sites that gave Halo a 10 got advertising money from M$...
you cant trust.
mind you this is the same site that gave Heavy Lame a 6/10 yeah that was unfair and flaimebait wasn't it ? but its ok as long as there giving Halo Reach an undeserving low score right ?
That's just fine. We laud hypocrisy. Welcome to n4g (ﾟಥ_ಠ)
Heavy Lame? Oh dear.......
Yep, if you've read BrianB's comment history you'll see he's a blind 360/MS loyalist troll, who wouldn't know a great game when they experience it. It seems he's fine playing the same sh*t again and again.
Judging from the pros and cons section seems to be a review of the single player. Even some of the paragraphs give way to talking about the campaign Edit - 'And now the Rocket Fight!" seems to be where the author talks of multiplayer.
Gamekult is trolling every popular game -> Heavy Rain, Halo Reach etc. Joke site.
100% true. its crap site
Honesty at last. The reviews who give reach top marks still refer to Halo 3 a great game, I wish they would let me play the games the reviewers do instead of having to buy a different version.
Would it be honesty if some of your most favorite games were rated a 3 or a 4, tell me will you still think it's honesty??
And i can just bet their not on the meta lists anywhere.
They said Reach is what Halo 3 should have been 3 years ago, but rates both games the same. How stupid. Halo 3 is a joke compared to Reach.
Crap site.Gamekult is a mistake
Judging from the website, this looks like a french gaming website. But who the hell cares what the french say, what do they know about shooting and war games? How to retreat and forfeit? lol Lame ass review imo.
I'll agree with Reach being a 7 and since PS3 fans agree with this site, then LBP is a 7, Heavy Rain a 6 and MGS 4 an 8. Oh wait.. I'm guessing they were biased and a joke when the PS3 games were reviewed, but now Gamekult is an awesome site.
You mean they were right on the money for MGS4 and Heavy Rain, telling the "truth," but now they're totally biased for scoring Halo Reach lower than the rest? Round and round it goes, pointing fingers at both sides. It's just a fake number. Stop giving it so much damn power.
After 4 hrs into the game.....I would give it a 9.2 (MAX).. those giving the game 10s are just blind idiots or fanboys this is just a tweaked version of Halo (not a bad thing) a bud finished the camp and said it was good, (not great) and he is a Halo ho graphics are very pretty in cutscences and not so good (textures, water) in much of the gameplay. the level design is typical halo, kind of borish at times replay and value is 9.8 there is so much in the package
Gamekult is on metacritics. This is for all the trolls that saying it is not. ;-) It's not an oriented fanboy webzine. LBP got a 7, Heavy Rain a 6, MAG got 6, Modnation racer got 6... if you think it's pro Sony. Last metroid on the wii : 7 etc, if you think it's pro Nintendo. Maybe they gave a 7 to Reach because it deserves it ?
What I'm saying is as long as the PS3 fans agree with the PS3 games getting low scores, then I don't mind Halo getting a 7.
"What I'm saying is as long as the PS3 fans agree with the PS3 games getting low scores, then I don't mind Halo getting a 7. " It's possible to agree with one review and not another. They're just one person's OPINION after all. You shouldn't "mind" at all, because someone else's opinion of a title you enjoy shouldn't bother you. Frankly, I disagree with all their reviews. I'm also not stupid enough to waste time caring about a MADE UP NUMBER.
Just look at their scores for playstation move games. This webzine is not according good notes easily, 7 is not bad on this site, never a game reached a 10. Would you think a fanboy is happy with such scores ?
I think based on that evidence, I'd more likely think that Gamekult are just very stupid reviewers. Modnation Racers deserves a 9, and so does Heavy Rain. LBP could easily deserve a 9.5 or a 10. I'm not saying Gamekult are biased against 360 or Halo. They're just shit reviewers. Period.
Okay not pro-Sony but just really crappy taste then. What games has this site scored high? I'm not going to bother to give them a click but that would be an indication of what this site does like.
LOLOLOL this review is trolling at it's best.
more crap reviews.
Looking for hits I see.
now we can all agree, at long last, that Gamekult is a crap website whose reviews shouldn't be linked to N4G, then? And I mean ALL reviews, no matter if they're XBOX360 or PS3 reviews, right? Right? I hope some of you who read this and may agree with me, will remember it next time they trash a PS3 game (or any other system from any other brand you may not like), before you have a knee-jerk reaction and automatically submit their next review for approval on N4G... Oh, and one last thing: kaveti & hyperbear: leave the goddamn past where it is and grow up, for god's sake. Besides, what makes gamers like you think you would 've done any better than the poor chaps who died to defend their nation? We're on a gaming website, thanks for not letting your passionate reactions carry you away. End of the line.
lol buddy. you need to calm down and chill okay. Firstly, my comment was a joke. I know people on this site seem to take things so seriously and as a "life or death" situation, but I was making a point that this site does not know crap about how to review a game properly. Secondly, I'm Canadian and am still living in the greatest country on earth. And for the record, my grandfather and all who served in WW2 (even back in 1914 in WWI) Canadian armed forces did the impossible and we kicked ass, even though it was told that "no one could accomplish it". We faught harder, longer and better than any other country during both wars and no one seems to care, especially Americans cause half of them can't point to Canada on a map. So relax, the comment was meant for joking purposes. Yes I brought up their past to make my point, but as you said, this is a gaming website, and once in a while telling a joke doesn't hurt (unless you take it seriously)
"I think based on that evidence, I'd more likely think that Gamekult are just very stupid reviewers." If you said so...hum, but why ? "Modnation Racers deserves a 9, and so does Heavy Rain. LBP could easily deserve a 9.5 or a 10." L.O.L . You know, the minimal note is not 8 huh, there are others numbers too. Modnation deserve his 6, and heavy rain too, consider his defaults. And halo reach deserves his 7 too. Master of unlocking "So now we can all agree, at long last, that Gamekult is a crap website " Sorry, but i don't agree. In opposite, for me, Gk is the better website on the net, and one on the last who are a minimum objective, and who don't give 10/10 or 8/10 for all games, even if it's crap. But hey, what do you know after all, you're note french ;)
En es-tu bien sûr...??? ;)
