Attack of the Fanboy has released their review of the upcoming title, Dead Rising 2.
im pretty sure the embargo hasn't lifted yet, also I'm pretty sure this site isn't reliable, I'll wait for some decent sites to review it before i make my mind up
They also released a review for Halo: Reach, the review for it seemed pretty legit.
it is "attack of the FANBOY" , so of course it isn't reliable.
Multiplatform release, though.
youre going to base the purchase on reviews? Why? I cant understand why anyone would do that, "profesional" reviews are useless. It seems people undertand that when it comes to movies and music, but when it comes to video games...
Well even if you don't agree with the reviewer, the review is generally the best source of information for a game across all categories.
most times I read a review I have no idea what a game is really like. I really have to just play the game, maybe watch some gameplay footage, or go by word of mouth from someone I know. They tend to dwell on things I dont care about or not mention things I love. For instance reviews for halo reach and starcraft barely even cover the aspects I most enjoy. and spend most the time talking about things that I couldnt care less about. If I listened to reviews my game collection would be vastly different, and much worse.
With no reviews to help to sort put the utter shite from decent to great games you would be spending your entire life just playing and testing games to find a good one and not to miss good games. People don't have the time. There are way too many games coming out all the time.
@kevnb without reviews I would have purchased Afrika for PS3 and that would be bad because it looked interesting. Also many other games like Arkham Asylum would be written of as just another movie tie-in and I would miss a great gaming experience. Reviews help with purchases but they should not dictate what you buy.
Just because they reviewed a game they downloaded from a torrent and published the review before the online embargo doesn't mean the review is any less accurate.
Nope, but it does make the "reviewer" an idiot. Nothing stupider then doing something illegal and then drawing attention to yourself. Which by itself kind of makes the review useless. I mean who values an idiot's opinion? BTW my favorite line from the review: "For my money however, the game got to be a little boring." What money is that? His monthly ISP bill? lol
Game will get slated by 360 fanboys for it going multiplatform.. I would say real reviewers will give it a fair shout but not many of them about..
wow you sound pathetic... I mean, i know you're a pretty big fanboy but..wow
thats something that the ps3 fanboys do to every game that ever went from a PS to being multi. on another note, I hope capcom makes a Mega man x game or a mega man legends game sometime soon.
Embargo has not been lifted yet per Capcom. Also my guess is this was a review from a rip/torrent. And "Pandemic" must be the dude that wrote the review...LOL at him saying "They must be legit... they did a Halo Reach review"...
Seeing actual gameplay is. All it takes is a 5 minute GameTrailers walkthrough of a level or something and I can tell if I like the art design, overall feel of the game, movement and whatnot of the characters. Reading a review does not really expose you to the specifics of the game.
my local game magazine reviewed DR2 on their september issue (like 15 days ago) and gave it a 8.2 ... i'm pretty sure they didnt care about the embargo too :D
Embargo's are different fror print and online.
Don't know what happened (trying to shamelessly court the West too much?), but Capcom have defined "average" this gen. While reviews don't really mean that much, they are a good indicator of public opinion on a game (public =/= personal though).
to be fair they havent done much on the xbox360 and ps3. re5 , dr1 & 2 , sf4 ssf4 , dm4 and thats about it all did pretty good. lp1-2,bc and dv are the games that sucked.
I liked Lost Planet, Dark Void and Bionic Commando, but whatever. Im really hoping Capcom has a new Dino Crisis or Monster Hunter PS3 title planned before gen-end. If not, i will not buy their games anymore. Also, im willing to give DmC a try, not because of capcom, but for Ninja Theory's sake. Heavenly Sword was mint, and Enslaved looks amazing too.
I loved me some lost planet, and lost planet 2 with friends was super fun. I don't understand the hate towards them by reviewers. I did not play dark void or bionic commando, so I cannot comment. I also LOVED Dead rising 2: case 0(the little 5 dollar game released a couple weeks ago) and played it I have to imagine 20 hours(got all achievements). I know I will be getting dead rising 2 no matter what, because I cannot imagine it is worse then case 0, it must be even better. I do not understand this 6.5 review.
Nice read, I like the layout of the review, much easier.
That's it... milk your "own" site with kind words...
Lol, all I said was this is a nice site, doesn't make me the owner of the site. I only just noticed the review and published it... Stop with the accusations if someone gives positive feedback. :l
This is a good review. All in all it's all about personal preference; I loved the first dead rising and I never hated the save system nor the 72 hours, I actually loved it cuz it added more tension and the multiple endings gave me an incentive to go back. I'm really only worried about greenes sluggish movement, is it noticeable? Or does it feel like west?
I loved the first too, others didnt. Im sure I will love the second more than some game the reviewers give 9/10. For example, I didnt like final fantasy 13 at all and would give it a 3/10, am I wrong?
People always complain about the save system and I don't understand that. The only thing I didn't like about the first game is that I got stuck on the bombs in the car park mission and that ment I couldn't complete the 72 hours. It would have been fine if I didn't start that misson (or could finish it lol)
Nice review, I was going to hold off on this one anyway. The stupidity that plagues Capcom this generation is just unbelievable. Why is it taking them so long to make the same games over and over again?
Eazy if you played Case zero you'll know the controls.. unless control is different from the final game..
I have an Xbox but I shunned it back in 08' when I bought my Ps3
Kinda disappointing that they didn't talk that in-depth about the game. I mean, is there split-screen co-op? How are the multiplayer game modes? Is there some sort of free-play mode without the time limitations? This leads me to believe that Attack Of The Fanboy just watched a couple of videos, possibly played Case Zero and thought they'd write the first review to gain some hits. It's either that or they employ bad journalists. Both seem pretty likely. Regardless, still pretty excited for this; can't wait.
Totally agree, everything they said you can sort of deduce from Case Zero. There's nothing meaningful in the article that we didn't know already.
its interesting how just 1 day after it gets leaked on piracy sites u see reviews of it popping up by no name websites
this was a must buy...especially with CoOP just havent been impressed with many of the vids so far might get when the game drops in price
I felt some of the same concerns while playing Dead Rising 2 Case Zero. I think the reviewer is probably spot on... Too bad, I was hoping for a GREAT zombie killing game.
Thats ok, I loved DR1 but I never expected the sequel to be great. It looks like the typical cash in sequel crap that is never as good as the first.
After saying the game has awesome graphics they lost all credibility...not saying there was much to start with, but hey, everybody deserves a chance.
I'll rent it. I can't see myself buying a game as repetitive as this anyways. It should be fun killing zombies for about 10 hours or so, but after that I can't imagine it being very exciting.
Wow... the latest online craze... "Give a good game a shit score and I get instant hits to my half-assed blog/shabby website"
Only casuals read/watch game reviews.
Obvious that this isn't legit its a small site only major sites have debug review copies and so forth. Reviews will go out next week, they wanted to get theirs out first to get hits. And to top it off people mentioned that they did not speak of the multiplayer, prolly cuz they CANT because either they havent played it or the servers are not open yet and debugs have special servers for themselves to play with other reviewers.
"I told myself I wouldn't draw comparisons between Dead Rising 2 and the L4D series in this review, but it's hard not to..." -AOTF well, that's basically all you did...EPIC FAIL, buddy... lol :)
I will wait and see if it is any good but to tell you the truth i have had a bad feeling about this game since it was announced. Something about it just doesn't feel right. Oh well if it does well I will go get my spidey senses tuned up but I am not so sure about this one.
i never really seen what was so good about this game reminded me of state of emergency by rockstar but with zombies
