Platinum Hits: Amy Review

Platinum Hits writes: "Amy is based around a concept that most developers fail to implement. Some sort of infection has descended on the city as Lana is trying to get a young girl, Amy, away from a research facility. Amy is an autistic child with special powers that go far beyond what movies and TV have led you to believe is normal for persons with autism. Lana must protect Amy by fighting off the Infected and navigating the levels while calling on Amy to perform special tasks like crawling through vents, hacking computers and using magic glyphs."

Are these people serious? Who are gamers more likely to believe, the one 9.2/10 or the thousand 2/10 reviews?

brettyd2162d ago

Apparently one gamer believes the 9.2...

I am not that gamer.

Goes to reiterate that review scores are strictly opinions. If the reviewer honestly had fun with it, then it's a fair review and should be taken as you see fit. One man's trash...

However, if for any reason there are external influences beyond the game pushing review scores than that is intolerable.

Perhaps this reviewer found some saving grace or interesting game mechanic or area that appealed to them. Perhaps something that other opinions overlooked. I suppose we'll have to all see for ourselves or make up our own educated opinion.

Just because smaller websites don't have the recognition like IGN, Gamespot, Giantbomb etc. it doesn't mean they have less of an opinion. They have the same qualifications as any other reviewer, they can put a disc in a console and play a damn game. So can anyone else. Your own opinion is the most valuable to yourself. Don't lose grip on it.

After reading the review, it feels almost as if the writer left out certain details. Not too sure if it was intentional or not. I can't say that the comments they made mesh with the actual score given. They hash on the negatives they found yet do little to give clear examples as to what they found so appealing about the actual game beyond shallow phrases like "immersive" and "original". As a reader I left the review wondering if much of what they were supposed to say was edited out. Not sure. You have to provide examples to back up your opinion, otherwise it doesn't look very credible.

gawd I hate these idiotic sites that give the complete opposite score from the rest to just stand out for hits!? I feel sorry for any followers of this site.

No. It seems that every time a review is posted someone always comments. "Well that's just like his opinion" or something of those lines.
And that is not what a game review should be, it shouldn’t be all subjective, shouldn’t be based alone on how much "fun" the reviewer had. There are a lot of very concrete objective thing the reviewer can point out (Especially in the gaming media, compared to other medias like books and films) And sites like Gamespot and Giantbomb have better qualifications then blogs and part time reviewers.
First of all have much more experience with the media. And second, because they don't need the hits and pages views as much as the bloggers, and therefor they have way less of a reason to post controversial stories and reviews.
Last of all, the big sites have systems in palace to ensure the quality of the review, editors and proof readings. Reviewers at Gamspot have to discuss the review score with the editor (Justin Calvert) before posting the review. Resources that most smaller sits simply don't have.

To think that all reviews are equally valid, and that opinions are “just” opinions, are naïve. But yes in the end your own opinion is the most important, but most people don’t have 60$ to spent for every game that comes out, just so that they can form an “opinion ” them self.

Look at their other reviews:

Uncharted 3 = 7.9
Skyrim = 8.9
Zelda SS = 8.4

and

Amy = 9.2

Every other site gives it a 1 or a 2, but nooooo this site gives it Skyrim numbers. I wont even click on the site. The DO NOT deserve my hit. I wonder how much they got paid off? or how much they know they are full of chit? Complete joke of a review. My grandmother could do better.

Heartnet2161d ago

hehe if you read the review ud be in for a chuckle :)

It is a sarcastic review:)

arnyftw2161d ago

What are you talking about? This game is obviously GOTY

rezzah2161d ago

Depends on the opinion of the majority.

So 1 person really enjoyed the game, does that mean their opinion is false or wrong?

Obviously no.

Even if the majority dislikes a game there will always be someone who enjoys it.

TheNocturnus2162d ago

Yeah, I have this game, it's no 9.2/10. The game is pure garbage, I wasted 800MS points on it.

Blaine2162d ago

^I'll believe that over any review score any day! Thanks for saving me the money.

Why o why2162d ago

Definitely

Ill also add that rage isnt bad at all. My feelings towards it were definitely swayed by the fact I only paid £12.99 for it. I just about pick up lunch for that.

unknownhero11232161d ago

tell me about it. what ruins it for me is the controls and the unforgiving checkpoint system. half the time, amy won't use her abilities when I tell her to.

TheoreticalParticle2162d ago (Edited 2162d ago )

"Amy is an autistic child with special powers that go far beyond what movies and TV have led you to believe is normal for persons with autism."

OH SHIT! I knew there was this global autism cover-up! All those autists are hiding their superpowers because the Illuminati plans to unleash them upon us!

I think that's all of the review that anyone needs to read to understand that this is either tongue-in-cheek or completely bullshit.

lashes2ashes2162d ago

No shit I have aspergers so were is my super power. I want to shout people to dust.

richierich2162d ago

I also have Aspergers Syndrome if I had the power to shout something to dust it would be that game.

Kran2162d ago

I have aspergers too. I always knew there was a power inside me.

Oh i so hope it's time travel ^^

admiralvic2161d ago

Shame. I got Aspergers too and I just manage to make 90% of the people around me hate me lol. I suppose that is super in it of its self.

RememberThe3572161d ago

Haha damn, how many people on this site have Aspergers?

SolidGear32161d ago

@admiralvic

Ha! I beat you. I have Aspergers as well, yet 100% usually tend to hate me. Including my wife, son, in-laws and co-workers!

Pintheshadows2161d ago

I'm dyslexic and thought you were all discussing asparagus. Is that a superpower?

SwampCroc2161d ago

My neighbor down the street has a son with Aspergers. I should tell him about N4G so you guys can welcome him!

Kakihara2161d ago

"I'm dyslexic and thought you were all discussing asparagus" ... Fucking hilarious, if I didn't have Asperger's I'd kiss you.
