I'm slightly surprised by all those 9/10s. Pleasantly surprised, however. This just went from off my radar to near the top of my most-want list...

.
I have a feeling it would have great reviews.

ddurand12704d ago

dont understand why some people rely on review scores so much. if the gameplay didnt entice you to begin with, why would a high score justify it?

@ddurand1- Bubbles. I don't get how all of a sudden you can be interested in a game just because a couple of random critics on the Internet say its good.

or constrict them.. Reviews still hold weight with the sheep of the gaming world.

If you're a gamer, you can tell if a game is going to be any good to you without reviews. Or if its in your ballpark. Just sad.

What is Legitimizing some fat dude's opinion at a desk for $500?

I'd also probably say the reason why some do this is because its not so much that the game wasn't interesting to them, more so they were more reluctant to try it out.

Example. On the PSN there are games and movies, that I would never had tried out without the rating system. Usually people have a good judgment on telling if something is crap or not. That being the case the rating system helps people who might say be on the fence or interested but not enough to have checked it out without said rating.

Hope that explains it. Then again I could be completely wrong. This is the perspective from my point of view however.

Update: Just to clarify even further I was getting this game regardless of the rating as I like niche things anyway. Sometimes you just have to venture out on your own and see what the deal is.

It's definitely on my list as I have nothing to play till GT5 in November. Still unsure about New Vegas though I may pick that up too depending on reviews.

Do we need round-up articles when N4G already rounds up the scores?

7 reviews in the N4G round-up - 14 reviews in this one...

Hallmark Moment2704d ago (Edited 2704d ago )

*cgoodno* is posting that because he's trying to take advantage of what I posted below in a SDF move hoping emotionally shallow and desperate fanboys will start spreading misinformation. Kratosgirl is already trying to do this assuming they are different people.

what the hell did you just say? that made no sense what so ever. You are always so busy trying to be a fanboy that you forgot to make sense....pathetic. I'm not trying to be a dick about it, but all cgoodno did was post some scores and you took that as some sort of fanboy attack? I don't get it, what did I miss?

edit: forgot to put @hallmark

Good reviews. Nothing earth shattering but good.

remanutd552704d ago

whats up? why did u block me ?

Neckbear2704d ago

Doesn't changes the fact than it's basically God of War: Van Helsing...

Might be cool, but no way this is a "Castlevania" title, putting aside the name.

...Well, at least it's not as bad as what they did with X-Com or DMC.

AllroundGamer2703d ago (Edited 2703d ago )

more like GOW-Uncharted-Shadow Of The Collossus copy... i hope they had at least some own ideas implemented or otherwise shame on them.

DarkRayneRules2703d ago

And that's why I'm getting Enslaved and not Castlevania. I want epic story, good soundtrack and beautiful graphics. I just can't see Castlevania delivering that. Maybe I've got the wrong impression. Either way I've got to buy and play the rest of the Castlevania games first. I'm way behind.

Graey2703d ago

How about you IDK try the game out, you know get a feel for the game. Not saying comparisons are bad...but you seem a bit harsh towards it. You know pre-judging something before you actually had the hands on experience of it.

Everything is meant to change...sometimes change is good, sometimes bad. Stagnation is worse.
