In my opinion these Scores are all Mainstream, Assasins Creed is cool.
CoD4: Just awesom.
Crysis is not the great Game i thought. B(
When i was a Reviewer i would give those Games:

Assasins Creed 8
Need for Speed 7,5
Mass Effect (I think) 9
Call of Duty 4 8 (wants moaar singeplayer)
Crysis 7


Sad that noone cares for my Opinion.

I myself can't give any of these games a score yet because I haven't completed/played them yet. But I'd say a 4 for AC is a bit harsh, perhaps. Even though I don't think very highly of it (at all).

But, he's entitled to his opinion, so that's fair enough.

They gave Mario and Sonic Olympics a 8
Yet Assassin's Creed only gets a 4 and being called "dull and contrived"

Yes, Assassin's Creed isn't perfect by any means, but it isn't the over ambitious mess most people are claiming it to be (I'd give it a B)

Uh, the olympics game is basically like every other olympics game ever made (it's not a wacky interpretation) except now you just move your wiimote and nunchuck up and down like crazy (a majority of the challenges consist of some sort of running), which is how almost every other Wii party game plays out (ex. Rayman's Raving Rabbids). Practically every game for the Wii is "dull and contrived" because the motion controls are poorly implemented or uninspired, and M&S Olympics is a perfect example.

I know the reviews are written by different people and that the games are completely different, but it's hard to take publications like this and Edge (even Play with their love for handing out 9's and 10's) seriously when their scores seem so unjust.

The Swordsman3888d ago

You're right. They give this generic game an eight but only a four to Assassin's Creed. I haven't played the game, but I've heard good things about it from friends of mine. I wonder, if Mario and Sonic didn't have Mario in it, would it have received the same score?

Chubear3887d ago

gamespot, gametrailers, 1up, EGM etc etc they all do the same thing. I don't know when gamers are going to stop being sheep to these editorial reviews and realise reviews are just the result of palm greasing by PR groups.

We have to rely on each other for proper gamer info not these gaming sites.

GamesTM is an awful magazine that tries so much to be a better magazine than Edge here in the UK but fails on all counts, it has a very good retro section but thats where the good ends.

It's also trying to be controversial with it's review of Assassins Creed much like some of Edge's reviews are perceived. A four is plainly ridiculous, Edge gave it a seven and got the review spot on

Keep trying GamesTM however at the moment your way off

eeehm. these guys had a good smoke.

Assassins Creed = 4 ????? ... lol. the game is much much better than a 4.

new NFS rocks. COD4 has one of the best single- and multiplayer ever and if they can't have fun with The Simpsons game, i think it's already too late for them :-(

Mercutio3888d ago

Man, AC is the best game ive played this year, so far, accept for HS. Its different, and thats why it deserves at least a 7.5, i would give it a 9.6 though
