I don't get the low score of Todd on Skate. Really. IGN gave it a 9.0 (360 version at least without the jaggies that the PS3 has), the others review it @ EGM on a 9 and 8. Where did that 6.5 came from? He doesn't like sport games?

Anyone that has EGM issue in his hands and can read/give info on it? Pretty curious about it.

mart i have the ps3 demo and i didn't notice any jaggies, but i get what your saying with Todds score because every other review that i have read gave it a 8 on higher. But honesty there is no differnece between the ps3 and 360 versions of the game, anyways if you don't believe me you could probably find a side by side comparison.

Stupid troll
There are no jaggies on the PS3 version. You couldn't even know since you haven't played it.

Wasn't there an article which said that PS3 version is actually better?

What about the poor filtering the 360 has.

And yes i've played both.
TheMART  +   2480d ago
Guys why are you ignoring the truth that IGN has stated themselves???


360 version 9.0
PS3 version 8.8

And the 0.2 was because of framerate problems/jaggies. You can cry it is not that way but it is.

Fifa 08 or PES...

I played the demo of strangle hold and enjoyed the heck out of it! I don't understand why they scored it so low even if the multiplayer sucked! I seriously wish there was a way to review games once completed on the consoles so that we could get rid of these stupid reviews that come out from these sites!

Mart, who cares what someone else rated something.
You've played the game right? You seem to think it's better than that, so someone else's score is inconsequential.

Why do you need a good rating to feel secure about a game you already enjoy?
nix  +   2480d ago
just ignore that PoS. no point!

Stranglehold is a blast!!
The demo isn't even the best part of the game. I liked the parts in the restaurant and with the dino's best. Every single object can be shattered, very satisfying :)

Skate plays so much better on the PS3.
mighty_douche  +   2480d ago
meh, both stranglehold and skate are pants....
stranglehold is a lack-luster version of Max Payne at best, poor graphics, poor gameplay and serious lack of animations and fighting nothing but twin brothers for hours...
skate, i was a bit gutted by this being an actual skater, sure the animations are nice, the tricks look spot on, graphics are all good by my GOD... its soooo boring, and slow paced. personally i always found Tony Hawk abit stupid and completely unrealistic BUT at least its fun to play....

all in my opinion^^.... stranglehond.... 6/10
skate........... 7/10

Jesus, Todd...
Todd needs to sort it out. What could be so wrong with SKATE for it to deserve such a low score?
c'mon Todd, even if u dont like skating games, be fair.
