Gamespot have posted the first part of their in-depth video review of Folklore, exclusive to PS3.
LMAO Last time I heard. Comics are lifeless. It's a story telling technique you idiot. The reviewer is a joke. Even Halo's SP gameplay is very linear but it still scores 10/10. So linear gamepay and loading are the major flaws of Folklore. Puhleeze. He's really dragging the bottom and he better remember what he said when reviewing most games out their that especially use a lot of cutscenes or FMV. Gamespy.com are my reviewers of choice. 4/5 stars was their ranking - Great. And they had valid cons taht lost the game marks.
Gamespot is a joke. Enough said. But it seem that these crackpot prefer to give average FPS with little or no story a higher rating than a game that is original in gameplay and a deep story. I agree with the IGN.com and Gamespy reviews because they actually see the game for what, which is an action rpg, rather than what it is not, a average FPS. I personally don't give a crap about reviews, but I always hated how Gamespot reviews games on the ps3. I prefer to buy a game because it look fun to me, and don't care what other may think about it. If I was to listen to reviewers on what games is good and what games is not, then I would have miss out on so many good and fun games over the pass 10 years.
somebody needs a tissue.
"Awww somebody needs a tissue." We'll get you one firstknight, i guess your 360 went RROD again.
FirstKnight. Do you ever post anythign remotely useful? I think everytime you post, the internet gets a little dumber, as well as everyone who reads them. While the quality of this game is debatable, your blind MS loyalty is not. People will have different opinions about this game, but everyone thinks you spoon your 360 at night. Please note that your comments only put you in negative light. Your disagrees always outweigh your agrees. Everytime. By alot. Which should tell you no one appreciate your comments, nor your presence on this site. Go ahead and post a reply to this. Your just gonna make everyone here think even more that you spoon your 360 at night. This site dies a little inside when your hulk avatar shows up.
This game is really good and fun.. I'm on chapter 4 on ellen and Keats and it's impressive how the story draws you in.
damn still got to wait till wednesday in switzerland. not out yet =( cry
is out on wednesday in germany too. cant wait for it.
I'm seriously becoming concerned with these peculiar rating systems for PS3 titles. I never focused on those who claimed these sites were bias by default but there does seem to be a lot of un-interest of these people for all things PS3 and seem to have a more underwhelmed, and even perhaps, negative perception towards the games. So many games are now getting 10's when they clearly don't deserve that score. Are games just getting better and better or are people's standards dropping? Or are people slightly bias? I was watching the 1UP video preview of Uncharted and everyone there loved it. Except one. And he was the one who was going to review it. He had a pretty much "meh" attitude and I knew straight away this game wasn't gonna get more than an 8 from them.
I don't care what score they give the game, as long as they're consistent with similar titles on other platforms. With that said, Gamespot usually gives the lowest scores of all gaming sites. I don't know about bias, but there's a definite weirdness going on with PS3 game reviews. I wonder what this game would have gotten had it been exclusive to the 360 (probably an 8 or 8.5). (Btw, I'd venture a guess that Uncharted will probably get 7's and 8's as well).
I honestly thing some of these sites are judging PS3 as a Next Gen console and the bar is raised really high. Meanwhile Xbox is judged as if it was XB1.5 and anything good gets way overatted. Disagree all you like but why are so many PS3 scores so varied? Ok if they were just crap then why wouldn't all the scores be 5. Some PS3 games like Lair get score from as low as 5 to as high as 9. Thats why I think some reviewers just have their expectations too high and should just judge the game in front of them for what it is. Like you said, Motorstorm is still the best example of a real next gen game. Something that couldn't have been done on the previous generation and I dont just mean the graphics.
reviwers are biased for an unknown reason!!! the proof is motorstorm, this game is the best so far, graphics, gameplay, non-linear tracks that will rock ur mind, online fun, and they gave it 7.9!!!!!!! dirt is sh!t compared to motorstorm and it took 8.5!!!!!!!!??????? seems that 1 point is deducted for being PS3 exclusive?
I believe that bias and bashing is poisoning an industry that should be all about fun. I own all the consoles and they all have their strengths and flaws. Each one has some great games and some not so good ones. I used to be a member at Gamespot and watch G4 regularly, when both those places started drinking the haterade, I left and never looked back. N4G has people from all sides so the opinions even out, still I think the users and most of all the general media should try to be more objective and less biased. And last, haterade should not be fueled just to get more web hits.
There seems to be a big ''biased'' outcry but the fact is that it should not matter to the avarage gamer.Just buy the game and play it, don't critiq other people for not liking it. People liked Lair, Heavenly Sword but they keep pointing fingers @ why the public ignores it.My opinion is that the game is pretty hardcore based, you ether like it or you hate it.
M$ has paid off GameSpot, G4, and many other sites to favor anything M$ over Sony. It's so sickening. Control the media and you control the masses. In this case M$ is controlling the gaming media, and many gamers are being blinded. GT5 Prologue Demo drops on United Nations Day,(whatever that means) October 24th baby!!!
up ya bum gamespot (on this review anyway) I do like a bit of VARIETY. With all these fps's nowadays its like the powers that be are subconsciously training us for something or their secretly recruiting the top fps peeps for god knows what
he dose have a point in the loading time may not be long but it is frequent oh and paracardium don't miss out on the cloak of twilight (don't know if we can post other ppls pic so here's a link to where the links to the pics where posted) small spoiler http://boards.gamefaqs.com/... oh and i heard that motorstorm had one race mode wile other racing game have like 4 note i don't have motorstorm or dirt but if true that mite be why
I have this game, bought it Friday. I haven't played it yet because I'm busy playing Orange Box. The mixed reviews were a turn off at first, but I broke down and bought it :)
Screw the mixed reviews man the game is worth the money you spent on it, you'll see when you play it.
i just finished both keats and Ellen's chapter 1, and boy am i hooked.. really great story telling... all though i'm more of a fan of Keatsas most of his stuff are physical attacks for the more offensive type and Ellen is much more projectile based... Keats rocks especially when he Transends and get all grey and bad ass.. it's truelly a very cool game. i'm now doing cha[ter 2 with ellen. i cant wait to play some more after i come in from work. ^^ good ish for real. and this reveiw... lol!!! it's ok let him be. i already purchased it and all the reviews of late says it all this game is an above average game scoring in the 8.5s with it's highest being the five 9s it got from IGN and various others
