Check out the latest review scores from the latest issue of Game TM. The publication has reviewed Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City, SSX, Mass Effect 3, Journey, Tekken 3D, Unit 13, Lumines Vita and many more.
Not really surprised. The game never caught my attention. Let's hope Capcom learned their lesson and stop outsourcing their games to western dev.
i thought it looked pretty good myself, the concept at least is very solid. unfortunately they chose a shitty developer. idk why someone would choose a dev that screws up an existing franchise. if they cant make a game where the groundwork is already laid down, why would you think they can do an original game any better?????
The concept is crap "kill leon ?" what for ? We know it won't happen .. and why would i want to kill one of the best character in the franchise ? AT the start the concept is flawed..
Well, it doesn't help the fact that all gameplay videos and interviews they showed are full of glitches and flawed mechanics.
Did you guys miss the bit where this publication allowed SSX to get a 5? I wouldn't call a publication that allows something like that to happen "credible". ORC looks like crap from all the vids I've seen(waiting on RE6), so I don't expect good reviews...but giving SSX a 5 is criminal IMO. That suggests that the ORC review should be called into question as well.
... but it's a shame that the new SSX made some strange and weird choices which aren't really what most fans wanted. Like the survival-mode which for many is too frustrating (not fun), plus all the tricks are nailed way too easily... It's now more of a time-trail game in the race-section, as opposed to SSX3 where you were really racing those other guys. Plus, not all the slopes are made for FUN. I does a lot of stuff right, it feels good, looks nice, but it's also a game that seems like it had a huge potential and it kinda failed to deliver that, because of some weird choices made during development.
@Yi-Long - I disagree with pretty much everything you said. I loved the previous SSX games but this new one blows them away in my opinion. I love the Survive It events and find myself doing them more than anything else when looking for Global Events to take part in. Their implementation of multiplayer allows many more people to take part, which I think is preferable, though I can see why people who love splitscreen would miss it. With over 150 drops of different types that require different skill levels and even styles of play, most people should find a lot to have fun with no matter what style of event they like best. 5 is definitely way too low. 9 is more like it. It's all designed for fun, though some of it is very challenging, which I think is a good thing in this age of catering to the casuals.
So just because they have a different opinion than you, their all of a sudden no longer credible? That is such a fanboyish way to look at things.
One score that you don't agree with doesn't make it not credible. It's like all of the drooling fanboys who'll selectively call IGN "IGNorant" until their favourite game franchise gets a high score and change their tone. Kinda. I'll admit I never heard of this publication, but a score that low has to ring alarm bells.
agree 100% with mystic. ssx nailed it, love that game. there is no possible way you can justify giving that game a 5. and the survive it events are amazing, i wish there were many more. also personally i like that they upped the difficulty of the courses to the point where some of them need to be momorized to be finished. im tired of devs spoon feeding me with every games difficulty these days, i miss the days when games were hard and took real skill
Mate giving SSX a 5 is very justified. I love the new SSX. You can add me on PSN if you like to see. I've won over 150 mil in global events and can score 50-60 mil on serenity. But the game has many flaws. Graphics ain't the best. Some of the tracks are hard and have too many pits you fall in ,to be called enjoyable and if I never played the older SSXs I probably would score it the same. I think it deserves around a 7 so going by that I'd put RE at a 5. Anyway don't buy RE ORC because it will suck and you'll be disappointed. Just wait for other reviews and see
SSX  Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City  Alan Wake’s American Nightmare  ewwwww??? score 5 for SSX?? http://images.cheezburger.c... Anyway, i wait for more reliable reviews...
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare  That's just stupid.
How the hell do Syndicate and Asura's Wrath score better than SSX? Also, its VG Arabia, so I don't think many people take them seriously...
Agree, go back to your roots Resident Evil. We want variety in our games. Not those boring military FPS games. We want our enjoyment back!
Sorry to tell ya but western developers have been number one for a long time now...
For me Demons/Dark Souls are still the best games of this generation however overall i have to agree with you.
Completely subjective and disregarded.
Maybe in graphics Doomz, but that's about it.
Yeah Demon Souls and Dark Souls are 2 of the best games this gen.
So i guess it's a crapy game. Moneytaker, nothing else.
SSX doesn't deserve a 5
Well the first time i saw a video from this RE i was like,WTF that game is running in slowmotion (It was SP video ) the bad framerate was all over the place it looked horrible an them i new it was going to suck .A game that is MP mostly is running in SP at very low Fps just imagine how it will run online.
People dont pass or neglect Binary Domain,for a new IP its a very good game in every aspect that i hope a sequel can correct the flaws it haves.Capcom its the one to blame If this RE game Bombs,i dont know if you people note this ,they put western developers making games for them but they dont give them the best tools available.The MT FRAMEWORK ENGINE its not powering this game,it did not power any game that Capcom made using western developers,like Bionic Comando,Dead Rising 2,DMC reboot,Dark Void... its strange.
The demo was horrendous!
I still hope that it will be a decent game :)
From what I've seen, I'm still going to have to buy it. (day1) I'm still curious as to the freedom players will have of choosing their character. Will people online be forced to play as 1 of 5 squadmembers, or will we have the freedom to play as any we wish, even if that mean duplicate players?
The RE Nemesis Multiplayer demo looked awesome! Dont know what this fool is thinking. Or perhaps he found the game a bit too scary. Kinda like the idiots over at IGN and their 4.5/10 review for Downpour. Which by the way is a great title despite its flaws.
Looking at the 5/10 rewarded to SSX then I wouldn't say that this reviewers scores can't be reliable for a first impression of what to expect in future reviews. The game is receiving a lot of hate due to it's changed approach in regards to gameplay, but that's the point of a spin-off, to provide a new look on the same world. The multiplayer (judging by Gamespots Tournament footage) looks quite intriguing and those of who participated claimed the game to have been a blast to play. 3/10 is just rediculous, probably a reviewer who despises change...
I agree something don't smell right.
Precisely, to score the game a 3/10 would be to indicate that the game is below average and essentially a mess of a game, of which, one, judging by gameplay demonstrations is not the case and two would be a disastrous business decision by Capcom to release the title prior to Resident Evil 6 if the game was as bad as this report suggests. That score is a joke. The game would have to be near unplayable. The reviewer clearly has a fanboy attitude towards the franchise or a personal distaste for spin-off titles, of which isn't fair when reviewing video games for personal preference to manipulate the given score...
SlantSix sucked at Socom and they sure as hell continues to suck. ORC didn't look fun. The movements look janky, the graphics look inconsistent, and the framrates are a mess. This game just isn't worth your dollar. However, this game will likely get its dues from having Resident Evil in the name! I'll be looking forward to RE6....
What do you know about the games' framerate? (and consistency of graphics, for that matter?) Have you played the game? Or are you boldly basing theses statement off you YouTube trailers?
It's not like there's a million GAMEPLAY videos of ORC, BattleTorn.... http://www.youtube.com/resu... ...oh right, there are.
The game is Meh through and through! Of all the decay out there they chose one of the worst western devs. Capcom's business decision have been crazy this gen!
Dont care what anyone says, it looks fun so im buying it
I don't care what any "critic" says about any game. I make my own opinions. I don't read a lot of gaming news or publications, so I might not know the relevance, but when I first read this, all I could think of "Who the fuck are they that makes their opinion so valid?"
http://www.metacritic.com/g... ^ One of my favorite PS2 games ever... Yeah, I am not gonna listen to what a "reviewer" has to say.
Beat me to it. Gamespot used Phantasy Star as an insult (saying it was dated online) as well so that's an instant "don't care about reviewers" right there.
Hear, hear! Great game choice by the way. It's in my top five of all time. I miss the online so much.
I'm sure it's not as good as it could be but I really doubt it's a 3. 3s are really, really bad, nearing being unplayable.
Im currently playing the new Silent Hill thats been getting horrible reviews and think its awesome. I missed old school survival horror. Not the action horror like Resident Evil is now or Dead Space. Which are good games but not really survival horror. Reviews are just an opinion.
So what else are we gonna play ? Journey? LOL gtfo, im not paying 10 bucks to walk around a desert for 1 hour (according to buyers) which they gave a 9. Pulease .
. Games are judged on their relative merits not simply the length of gameplay. And $10? You spend that much in a movie theater on a single view. The game is 2-3 hours and when you buy it, you can play it through as much as you want. I've heard from gamers who have already played it through multiple times, because well... it's just that amazing! It's a good thing you're not reviewing games.
Try about 3-4 hours... I'm not sure what game these reviewers are playing. It took me about three and a half hours to beat it the first time through.
SSX: 5/10. Unit 13: 5/10. I think these guys don't sound very trustworthy.
bais review is bias
they can score it what they want, but i always think GamesTM tries to hard to be like edge magazine (another magazine I used to like but cant stand now). glad journey's getting therr recognition it deserves amazing game.
I personally want a RE Next-Gen Outbreak but those days are gone. It's all about squad based shooters
A review is only 1 mans opinion at the end of the day
Uh oh. A game site that nobody knows about gave their opinion on a game. I guess Im not getting it now.
Worst case scenario it is a reskinned socom confrontation, it'll still be fun as long as the servers work.
After watching gameplay videos is anyone surprised about RE:OC getting a bad score? It looks like garbage.
They gave Asura's Wrath a 7 and SSX a 5 Game reviews are simply opinion. I'm not worried.
Lets hope Resident Evil 6 will be good
Well, while this seems like a harsh review, and future reviews will likely be more positive; it's still pretty much what I expected from Slant Six. I have no idea why anyone would give them a franchise like Resident Evil and expect them to create a wonderful AAA experience after what they've done with SOCOM.
Alan Wake/SSX both get 5? lol what a joke of a reviews.
SSX a 5? I'm blocking the site.
preordered it already thats all i got to say
i dont care, reviews usually just match the hype by the internet fanbase.
No offense to Arabia, but I think I'll wait to see the final verdict on the game from a better and more reliable source.
Don't trust these reviewers, if you want a good review then wait till the Metacritic review is out cause it get's reviewed by critics and by users that are not payed.
