If you remotely enjoyed InFamous, don't even think twice about InFamous 2... it's almost a jump comparable to that from Uncharted to Uncharted 2 (almost), it is our familiar InFamous experience indeed, but better in every way.
This game is getting some really mixed scores let alone the reviews themselves. Dosent matter. Already bought.
Oh yeah. Could care less about the reviews at this point...the demo sold the game to me.
@Thelastgaurdian The phrase is 'i COULDN'T care less' just saying.
Its only gotten two 7 scores, but in all honesty I expect it to get either more 7's or lower from some of these other websites to come. Edge, destructoid, metro.uk, thunderbolt, etc.
The reviews read at the 80's-90's%% but they are giving out 70's%. I don't get it why the media wants Sony to fail. I expect bad scores for UC3 too. I read them but I never let it influence my buying decision.
Well to be fair there's been like 2 scores like that. One from gamepro which gave it a 3.5/5, and Gamespot which gave it a 7.5/10. The majority have been between 8 and 9/.
I guess I shouldn't care. Blows my mind that IGN gave this game a 9. Maybe the end is near. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!
Sony exclusives are just held at a higher standard. The story according to other reviewers is not good but others its excellent. Seems odd. I suspect those that are giving low scores haven't played it completely or they are reviewing an old build. It just seems odd.
This seems to be a major issue this generation with reviewers. I have yet to read a review on any game this gen that matches the score they give at the end.
Now thats just silly.
The thing is that metacritic have counted every low score for this game, but havent counter anything higher than 9. Hmm...
"I don't get it why the media wants Sony to fail." My grandpa, in this case, would say: "no one does something for free". My grandpa is very old, not very smart, but he is rather wise and often he is right.
i guarantee they are going to bash UC3 no matter what. It could be better than UC2 in every single way and it will get way lower scores. Never again should anyone listen to reviews when you actually look at their history.
This review is better then Gamespots :)
Really mixed opinions and scores :-)
I forgot how good the original was. That is why it's 9.20am and i've not been to sleep.
I need this game in my PS3. Like...now.
Gamepro's review. The missions are unimaginative (even compared to the original), navigation issues prevent you from ever attaining a movement rhythm, and the various narratives are a mess. But worse still, the combat isn't as tight as it could be and the world itself just seems less polished than its predecessor. Yet, for those moments when the game shines, it shines brightly. Worst review i've seen. And does not make any sense. Less polished then infamous 1, wtf. BS.
Maybe gamepro forgot that there was a demo and we could play it for ourselves so they decided to make up a whole bunch of shit.
Have you played the full game? No? Then don't criticize his opinion.
There's a demo and it pretty much by it self demolishes the review.
half way through it..is that enough for me to have a differing opinion or criticise some of his opinions. Not the best game in the world but the reviewer should at least make fair and rounded critiques when writing a review. People will complete the game read that review again and think WTF. Everybody is entitled to their opinions and everybody is entitled to have an opinion on others opinions too
I'll criticise all I want if they are lying and I have the evidence. I've been playing LA Noire. I know how this stuff goes down.
Yeah, I was taking a look at that review a few minutes ago. Their magazines generally just sit around on the store shelves collecting dust anyway... ..and didn't gamespot give Ratchet and Clank TOD a 7 as well, or am I mistaken? Then they give games like COD 9.5's while their user review average remains at 5.7 http://www.metacritic.com/g... I think the user reviews often do a better job reflecting what people really think about some games.
