The Stranglehold score is nice, the rest of the reviews aren't surprising
Agreed. I was expecting a 7 or something but it is great news for me. Big fan of Strangehold and John Woo.
i was gonna get stranglehold collectors edition the one with the blu ray but then i played the demo on xbox live. I think the game is rubbish. Gameplay is extremely repetitive and if a game like heavenly sword can get a 7 so should stranglhold. I am extremely dissapointed at the poor heavenly sword reviews. Puzzles are apparently lame which is something i seriously look forward 2 in games like this, then they have like only 5 differnt types of bad guys. Good to see warhawk do good though. I am still waiting on a lair demo before i purchase the game so factor 5 better deliver that demo and hope it convinces or am not buying. back 2 warhawk
Gives PS3's 3 "Big Hitter" games a dismal average of 7.3? Bwa ha ha ha ha. Keep waiting for a decent Bioshock or Halo grade title there Sony fanbois.
Warhawk is a PS3 "Big Hitter" and recieved 9. Not to mention dozens of other high scores from other sites.
Keep playing the same crappy halo. And yer Bioshock is great on my PC ahahahahahahaha! Oh wait and my 360. ahahahaha LOL. Who's the arse?
360 fanboys complain about Sony fanboys, but the truth is that they are no better than the people they bash and vice versa.
Did i mention i am playing Bioshock on My Sony Vaio PC
Hehe, have you read the article abou fanboys anatomy?
Sad scores for Lair and HS but hey, at least Warhawk and SingStar got 9/10 plus Stranglehold got 8 which isn't that bad.
Microsoft paid OPM with tons of opium
Took the Warhawk plunge, and at 39$, why not! See you out there on the battlefield
i cant believe heavenly sword is not doing very well and i know lair is going to suck ass anyway i mean wtf u just fly around and shoots fire ball but warhawk is the real deal.
where's the fandroids saying "I heard that UK OPM was run by xbots and payed by M$ to write bad reviews, because Heavenly Sword and Lair just couldn't be average games right?" you cant get a more ps3 biased source than an official magazine, from the horses mouth Heavenly Sword and Lair disappoint, things are looking bad for PS3 owners in 2007 two "AAA Killer app" titles that Sony was relying on turned out to be duds. Ratchet and Clank and Warhawk will be the only games worth purchasing this year
Heavenly Sword is far from a disappointment. Besides, i'm going to rent both of these games to see if they are as "crappy" as everyone is saying they are. You see that? I'm going to make up my own mind on whether I will like a game or not by actually playing them. For some reason, that seems to be a hard concept to grasp with most "gamers" nowadays... Oh, and you also left out at least 6 other games besides the two you just listed, so your statement is a little off.
Uncharted, I still have high hopes for that game! And also I agree with 7.1. Heavenly Sword is still a "Must have" for me!
Since your talking about this year than what about UT3, Haze and as blusoops said, Uncharted. And no matter what, Lair and Heavenly Sword are AAA games for me.
What other choices do you have?...Lair?...... It isn't a matter of choice.....Its a need.... Well, atleast you got WarHawk as a Fallback....
lair still rocks in my eyes and the single player will; be better than halo 3
Lair, Heavenly Sword, Warhawk, and Uncharted all appeal to me so magazines giving reviews that don't give the games i like scores I believe it deserves is okay. If Warhawk is fun for me and I play it for hours, days, years than it's a 10 right? I still play Halo 2 with all it's lag and cheating issues. As long as it's fun then that's what's important to me. Disclaimer: I'll accept no more lag and cheating on Halo 3 (Staring at you Bungie and Microsoft)
All PS3 owners should be too busy right now blowing stuff up on Warhawk. And all 360 owners should be ripping apart little sisters in Bioshock. Enough arguing about which is better..let's play some games!
I for one am happy to see Stranglehold get a good score I was afraid that it might not be good and I would have to pass on getting Hardboiled. So this is good news. I for one was thinking it might be lower but am happy to see it is not.
Sounding Conspiracy Theory.... My bet is on WaggleLoL...he always comes up with the best.
Its funny how things turn out, it looks like warhawk is the must have ps3 game rather than lair or heavenly sword.
Strange indeed my friend. I probably will pass on Lair but I still am going to get HS. I absolutely love what I have seen on Uncharted. I probably will pick it day one. Ofcourse there is Halo. DAMN. All of these games are taking a big sh1t on my wallet. Anyway, Happy Gaming..just be sure to buy groceries first!
Meat have you tried warhawk yet? I am thinking about picking it up but i was wondering do you know if it has split screen?
I picked it up about 2 days ago and it is pretty fun. My first 20 min, I was frustrated because I did not understand the missle locking system. After playing it a while now, it is pretty fun and I am enjoying it. I do believe that 30 would of been a better deal for what you get but I love the game and I am glad I downloaded it. As for splitscreen I am not sure(The wife would rather be punched in the taint than play it).
it has splitscreen up to 4 ppl!
I am still getting Heavenly Sword ( I just had too much fun w/demo) I won't be gettin Lair (Too may bad reviews,and NO demo Hs should hold me untill Ratchet, and Uncharted, and Assasins Creed drop. I don't know why everyone is making a big deal about lair as if Sony put all there horses into one basket. I wanted the game to be good too, but Now only a Demo, or rental can convince me to purchase. I played Heavenly Sword, I like it, despite what the reviewers say. So I know I will have fun with this title. peace
well I need to play a demo of Lair before I decide to buy or not. Warhawk could seriously hold me over until 2008... but I think i will rent HS and make up my own mind. Warhawk, Uncharted and Rachet for me i guess... back to warhawk now...
Well rent if for you and me both bud. And if you could be so kind to PM me what you thought about the game I would greatly appreciate it. All thes "negative reveiws" trying to deflate the newfound upswing on the PS3, does not phase me one bit. It is a little disappointing, but we have so many other titles to look foward too, it just makes me look foward to them all the more.
Oh yea...cause the games will NEED PooRay. Oh well, at least you can watch movies on it. And Heavenly Sword is still getting Gravely Reviews. And you guys were so outraged when the DoA dude dissed the game. What's his name again? Ita-phuk-u!!
I can't remember what group it is but Sony has no influence on any of the scores, they also do xbox 360 magazines and PC ones, i'll pick up my copy tommoz and see what they have to say... I'm still buying both heavenly Sword and LAIR, i like the motion control's and heavenly sword is my type of genre so it's all good, they can go along side Motorstorm and Resistane that both got good reviews...
