The latest Game Informer review scores include LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, and more.
Ghost Trick got a 6.0? That doesn't sound right at all...
Omigod, finally. Thank you for that.
Thats not because of us. It's because videogame reviewers score too high.
For some games maybe. But according to the graphs, many gamers consider an 80 or 75 to be bad(depending on the console at times). While movies with similar scores are usually considered good or decent. PS. People know damn straight that LBP2 should be higher than that (if it weren't for those dishonest 6.5s or 7/10 reviews) :P
well , it is seems that they're not rating games too high . they're just rating the game on a scale of 5 . 5-10 , that is . what a bunch of mumbo jumbo . dead space 2 and LBP 2 definitely deserve the score . im not a racing fan , cant speak for GT5 . it looks great tho .
There's a difference between spending $5-10 and 2 hours on an average (or bad) movie than $40-60 and 10+ hours on a videogame. So while I agree that it's stupid for gamers to outright dismiss games that average below an 85, you can't blame them for being more picky when the financial and time commitments are a lot higher than moviegoing. Also that ghost trick score is way too low.
I totally agree. If movies cost me $70 to see (actually, with a wife, two kids and a third on the way, they soon will), I wouldn't see any that weren't rated 90+.
well then again games are more expensive than movies, but overall i agree our standards are either way to high, or we use inaccurate, inconsistent websites like Metacritic as a way of telling us what a great game is, Metacritic told me GTA4 is the best game i can possibly play, to me it was a 7 at most
Why does LBP2 have to have a lower meta score than LBP1? LBP2 is a such an improvement so it doesn't really make sense to have a lower score. Most reviewers were giving it 9.5 and 10's so why only 92? regardless of the score I know I will enjoy LBP2 for years to come.
@TLG Too much innovation, content and replayability. Reviewers don't like that,
*claps slowly* bravo =D OT: wow, lotsa 9's!
"But according to the graphs, many gamers consider an 80 or 75 to be bad" Those are reviews from the REVIEWERS. It is the REVIEWERS who have inflated the scoring system, NOT gamers.
awesome cant wait for dead space 2
Wow 9.5 LBG2 is a beast
Yep no stopping this little beast. I have searched everywhere for a CE copy and they are pre sold out accross the total country. Shattered. Ill get the normal and pray someones cancels their pre order.
wtf is LBG2
it is typing error
He meant LittleBigGalaxy 2 :D :P
I bought the LBP1 day one, loved it... But when they began releasing costume packs in the UK for £4.99 or so, it became quite annoying. We all know about milking cows and no matter how good LBP1 was, that much money for costumes is outrageous. I still ended up splashing out an extra £30 for packs, but when LBP2 releases, I might just wait and let it go down in price. LBP1, after 3 months on shelves, went from £40 to £12 brand new. So wouldn;t it be more cost effective for us consumers to buy the game later down the line and then reward Media Molecule by buying the additional costumes? That way, you get the game and addtional content for lot lot less money. What does anyone think?? TBH, 4 costumes should not be worth more than a quid regardless of licensing costs. Infamous in a Sony brand so no licensing required but still cost £1.50. Am i missing something??? /rant over lool
Meh. I was going to get LBP2 regardless. But its nice to see Dead Space 2 get some love, I'd pick it up if it wasn't releasing so close to LBP2 :(. Maybe in a month or two...
lbp2 or u3 will win goty
I think KZ3 will be up there aswell, I have put a heap of time into the online beta and it is really impressive. The beta only had 3 levels and I was blown away so much fun, the jet packs where cool aswell.
No. The Last Guardian will.
LMAO. last guardians he says... *tears stream down eyes*
If it's anywhere near as good as Shadow of the Colossus, then U3 and LBP2 don't stand a chance.
It wouldn't surprise me if LBP2, UC3, or Last Guardian won GotY, all based on the past titles from the same devs of course, since I haven't played any of them yet. Already 3 clear contenders for GotY on PS3... assuming LG does come out this year. I wasn't a big fan of KZ2, but KZ3 may pleasantly surprise me and be in the running also.
You still think TLG will be released this year? lolol
Good scores for LBP2 and DS2 But Ghost Trick deserve at least 8,one of the best DS title ever,i'm on Ch6 and cant put it down:)
Guys I need some help here I want lil big planet 2 and mass effect 2 but I only have money for one game and I love both dammn it this is a hard desicion some help would do wonders for me thanks and bubs on whoever helps me out :)
Well I am going for LBP2 over ME2, I didnt like ME2 that much, although I know a lot of guys love it, it just wasnt for me, never been into RPG's and I loved the first LBP that much that number 2 is just gonna be too good to miss.
Both will be great games, I would just go with what you feel like playing the moment. I would think the price of ME2 will go down pretty quick, so you could probably pick it up cheaper later on. But then theres good games coming out every month so they'll probably overshadow then ones you hold off on.
Before playing the ME2 demo I would have told you to get that first. That way, the LBP2 level building community will have time to come up with some good stuff. After playing the ME2 demo, I say just get LBP2 now. Personally I'll be getting Deadspace 2 next, then LBP2, then ME2 when it's on a deeeeeep discount.
@MysticStrummer I agree. I was so pumped for ME2 on the ps3, but after playing the demo, I dislike it. I am so glad I played the demo first. The only rpgs I like now are fps , snes, and paper mario ones lol.
I love Game Informer they really hit the g spot with those scores
WOW.........The giant hype machine for MW2's release reeeeeeally blinded some reviewers in 2009. They gave MW2 a 9.75, .25 higher than LBP2 I know its a year old game but come on.............
Great scores for LBP 2, DS 2 and GT 5.
Negative creep thanks bro u have a great point there it will come down in price later on thanks again I gave u a bub bro
great job GT5 and LBP 2 going to pick up the LBP tomorrow
LittleBigPlanet 2 is a potential Game of the Year.
In two days I'm going to be playing LBP2 and ME2.
God I want a sackboy (thumbnail)
The first comment on Nintendo Everything's article: "RandomSandboxGame2 getting 9.5 and Lost in Shadow only a 7.5 and Kingdom Hearts not even that? I can guess who Game Informers sponsors are.." Truly mind blowing stuff, it's surprising how one dimensional some people's opinions can be. LBP and now LBP2 are surely deserving of every accolade they get.
cant wait for lbp 2!
Mystic well I played the demo and I liked it and even tho I found the gameplay a lil bit clunky I should say it was great and I love the mass effect franchise but sackboy his so cute and awesome I've been playing the demo everyday it that's how amazing the game is gona be by just playing the demo well I've come to a conclusion I'm getting lil big planet 2 sawrry mass effect 2 I love u and everything but sackboy his just awesome thanks again bro for helping me out bubs to u :)
