seems to be getting positive reviews, great news, that means that we got two great games today. What a great day to be a gamer,

Scored better than Killzone 3, that was not a bomb because its a multiplattformgame, had that game been exclusive to PS3, 8/10 they have given

Played both demos and Killzone 3 gave me much more with better graphics, gameplay and so on!

Thats why it would be useful to have sectional scores

Graphics: KZ3 is much superior
Content: both have similar single-player length, only KZ3 has online multi so KZ3 wins here
Characters: KZ3 is much criticised, yet Bulletstorm essentially relies on profanity and cliched, Gears-like characters, so nothing to choose
Gameplay: again nothing to choose, both are solid but different styles. If anything, Bulletstorm is more generic than KZ3 with its weighted weapons, cover, dark art style

So what exactly prompts a higher score for Bulletstorm? The faact that its not a PS3 exclusive?

ComboBreaker2765d ago

I knew Eurogamer was going to do something like this. LOL.

VictoriousB132765d ago

Do something like what? Review a game? Why is it that everything has to be about your precious ps3 and it's exclusives? Why can't every game be reviewed on it's own merits rather than being compared to another? And why is it that whenever a journalist gives a higher score for a game than the one you like, you tear into that website even though it has MORE THAN ONE JOURNALIST REVIEWING THE GAMES.

ComboBreaker2765d ago (Edited 2765d ago )

What chu talking about? All I said was I knew Eurogame was going to give Bulletstorm a 9.

I didn't bash it. I didn't praise it. I didn't compared it to another game. Heck, I didn't even said anything about the PS3 or its exclusives.

So what are you rambling about again, trying to accuse me of bringing the PS3 into this discussion like that?

VictoriousB132765d ago

Don't try to backtrack, you've been in almost every bulletstorm review complaining about its score compared to killzone 3. Your comment history reeks of sony fanboyism. And you seemm to have some sort of idea that eurogamer hates PS3. oh the conspiracies.

ComboBreaker2765d ago (Edited 2765d ago )

"you've been in almost every bulletstorm review complaining about its score compared to killzone 3."

What? All I ever said in those Bulletstorm reviews was that I did not like Bulletstorm, which is my own opinion. There's nothing comparing Bullterstorm's score to Killzone 3, or complaining about Bulletstorm having a score higher than Killzone 3.

"Your comment history reeks of sony fanboyism."

Dude, there's nothing wrong with liking Sony and the PS3.

"And you seemm to have some sort of idea that eurogamer hates PS3. oh the conspiracies."

When did I ever said there was a conspiracy? I don't see how Eurogamer writing anti-PS3 articles is consider a conspiracy. Eurogamer writing anti-PS3 articles is just Eurogamer writing anti-PS3 articles. How is that a conspiracy?

This game is not good.. the story has an awful plot but of coure it won't be scored lower for that ;)

The game almost depends on you "kicking" for about 90% of the skill kills(which gets repetitive, but that's cool aswell lol..

dont get me wrong this is my opinion :)

TheBlackSmoke2765d ago (Edited 2765d ago )

Yo dude bro I kicked that guy in the nuts = 9/10.....

Lets forget console wars, previous games and preconceived ideas....If you put KZ3 and Bulletstorm next to eachother and you honestly think Bulletstorm is the superior game, there's something wrong with you.

iistuii2765d ago

Something wrong with me.

Montrealien2765d ago

if you think someone not agreeing with your personal opinion means there is something wrong with then. There is something even more wrong with you.

thief2765d ago

And this
"Your mission is to blast your way back to the man whose betrayal landed you here...simple narrative filled with imaginative (often gynaecological) swearing"
is construed as a positive, while KZ2 was incessantly criticised for, wait for it, having a weak story and too much swearing. Unbelievable.

Close_Second2765d ago

It always confounds me that console owners have to pay more for the lesser version of the game. However, this game for me screams rental or buy for a week and on-sell to ensure you get a good price.

The second hand sales market is littered with solid single player/co-op games that are going for a song.

HelghastDrake2765d ago

so let me get this straight. A game like bulletstorm gets a 9, a game that doesnt have a online versus multiplayer mode virtually no story and bland characters gets a 9 while a game like Killzone 3 with a superior online multiplayer mode much better story and characters gets knocked off points..

Neckbear2765d ago (Edited 2765d ago )

Have you played Bulletstorm to pass judgement on the characters and story? Believe it or not, I've read from people that pirated the leaked copy that said characters are actually pretty likeable, even when the plot isn't outworldy.

Moreover, should the lack of a certain mode affect the score? Let's not turn this into another Vanquish, I actually support the descision of not having a generic multiplayer deathmatch mode.

MidnytRain2765d ago

It's the effect of of hype. People create sky-high expectations, so if it falls short in just a few areas, it's criticized. But regarding your comparison, I still stand by my theory. You CANNOT prove one game is "better" than another. It depends on what a person is looking for.
