Between poor level design, boring combat, and hamfisted attempts at over-the-top explicit content, Splatterhouse is a mess.
6.0 Presentation 7.0 Graphics 6.0 Sound 4.0 Gameplay 6.0 Lasting Appeal Overal 4/10 LOL These guys must be serious now, it's like they would only give your game 8/10 IF the publisher pays them!
The Overall is a 5.8 or a 6/10. I mean I get IGN is the new EDGE, but jeez, be a little consistent.
I don't see the point in assigning a numerical score to the aspects of the game when they don't use an average for the overall rating.
@chinesedemocracy Probably because they consider some aspects of a game more important than another? I'm sure many would find gameplay or graphics > all other apsects. That's my reasoning on why IGN doesn't use an average.
Because if a games graphics are shit but plays amazingly then an average would just pull it down
See? And people are complaining about the Gt5 review score... 8.5 from them should be considered atleast a 9.5 from everywhere else these days.
This is my score of ign reviews: Presentation 4 Exhaustiveness 3 Consistency 2 Usefulness 1 Overall 0
i don't see what the problem is i knew this game was gonna flop and flop hard i expect all other reviews t be just as bad
so is official this game sucks but i expected that dou
The game doesn't suck - it's for people who like old school brawlers and blood and metal. It's not for everyone but it definitely doesn't suck.
Yeah, this game totally sucks because one person says so. Congratulations, you're ignorant and can't develop your own opinion on anything. P.S. They gave God Hand a 3.0 yet it still managed to end up on their Top 100 PS2 games....Haha
ummm... can someone send them calculator, pls.
Still gonna rent it for the fun.
lol IGN strikes again... But i like them, i don't know why people hate them.
Here's a good example. http://i52.tinypic.com/15mm...
I hated the way they ragged on Godhand. It was fantastic. A tough game, but fair game.
i absolutely loved god hand, its 1 of those games that i remember from the ps2
geez ign suck so badly. idont trust them at all.
Dude, IGN's review makes me think they didn't play through the entire game. You should check out our review for a more positive look. http://drunkonjudgement.com...
Notice how they don't mention the arena mode at all?? or the original games and how they play? They are really good ports, and the arena mode is fun as hell.
Fun game is fun, don't be fooled. Probably not worth a $60 purchase, but surely worth a playthrough.
Game will probably not sell, regardless of scores.
60 dollars is just on the steep side, but it also depends on your preference or mood. I think Majin and Enslaved are great games coming from Namco, but this one seems to catch me off the edge for some reason. I am actually more interested in Knight's Contract instead, so I will save my 60 on that game instead.
I'm still buying this once it drops in price, loved the originals.
"Splatterhouse is a mess" That was expected since the first video. At least for me. ^^
I just beat Splatterhouse and it was fucking awesome. IGN has their heads up their asses!! Even Jim Sterling liked Splatterhouse!! http://www.destructoid.com/...
Jim Sterling is an odd one.
ign are microsoft's monkeys some of the worst reviews i've ever seen...even 6 months ago they seemed a lot better lately it seems that they switched out their whole staff with middle school 360 fanboys, in writing quality and content....seriously
the bionic commando syndrome making an incredible classic game franchise rebooted into garbage this games got it also
IGN's scoring math does not make any single logical sense. The written review, kinda, but scores? Wha?
I have the game and it's good so far. I'm not quite sure what the author is talking about with the unresponsive controls, but hey maybe he's not good at these type of games. In any case, don't pass this up, it's a good title. Rent it, if your low on cash.
Hah, I'm so happy I don't listen to reviews anymore. I'm gonna play this game and I'm gonna beat it :)
great game, IGN really sucks sometimes.. I can't forgive them for a GOD HAND review :/ :)
mehhh i have the game and is not bad
