Sony get criticised for having no games...

Sony get criticised for releasing two games in one month...

I can see your point. I'd be happy to see a mash-up adventure game with the JetForce Gemini trio, BK, Conker, and other non-Rare characters like Blink. Throw in some Blast Corps elements and I'm sold.

Having said that. I'd also have no problem with another BK game in the style of the original two on N64... IF MS could find a dev or rebuild Rare to have the talent and the humour of the originals. It's 15 years since Banjo Tooie, and 6 since Nuts and Bolts -... #40.1

Same here.

I was a subscriber for years. I liked their strict review policy. But eventually the writing style of some of their journalists got more and more self inflated and pompous. I think it was one of their older Mario Kart reviews that finally made me cancel... It said nothing about the game, and was just a load of hotair.

They may have changed for the better since, but I don't bother reading it any more. #5.1.3

If only the WiiU was cool enough for me to buy and enjoy hours and hours of Mario Kart 8.

Damn. What a shame I only buy products based on how cool they are and not how fun they are.

Surprised Horizon 2 got a 7. It's probably the best driving game I've played in a long time and I would give it an 8.

Not tried Driveclub yet.

An 8 for Destiny seems right to me. #3

Classic case of someone who should have walked away from their computer, got some fresh air, calmed down, and then decided whether or not threatening the founder of the platform you make most of your livelihood through would be a good professional or personal move!!

Especially as it was all over what amounts to an admin error that could have been easily corrected.

I have no sympathy for this dev, his company or his future prospects in the industry. The open... #6

Absolutely!!

I wouldn't touch Beats. They are a piece of crap compared to a good set of Sennheisers. #1.1

Agreed.

I much prefer it to Forza 5. Never played Horizon 1 though - but the festival idea in Horizon 2 is very good. #1.1.1

I was pleasantly surprised how good this game was. Would have overlooked it normally, but it was bundled in with my XB1.

At a low price it's well worth the money. The single player is great value, compared ot other recent FPS games the single player is really long. #2

4.3 out of 5! What a fail. I ONLY buy games that score 4.5 out of 5 or higher! That 0.2 extra makes ALL the difference!

/s

On topic. I bought this game after seeing so many rabid comments from N4G'ers saying it was excellent. And they were right, it is very good. I still don't like the DLC model they use, but the driving is a lot of fun. And the Kinect integration for the Sat Nav is brilliant and useful. #1

But every franchise has to start somewhere. Look at ND's history. They have always taken risks by launching new IP. Then they normally do a couple of sequels and move on.

You argue that Uncharted is the ND cash-cow... But ND took the risk of launching Uncharted ion PS3 as a new IP. Why wouldn't they do the same on PS4.

For me, I'd have liked them to end Uncharted with #3 on the PS3. Fresh start on PS4 with something new. It would still sell..... #9.2

Author is an idiot.

I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I respect that - but in this case it is just flat out wrong on every level, and this author should probably start looking for another profession as gaming is obviously not for him! (or at least a change in direction considering his previous two reviews were for puzzle games Chip and Mousecraft OBVIOUSLY far superior games to Sepc Ops!! /s)

Also I'd disagree that Apocalypse Now Redux... #23

I'm sure there could be ways for Sony / MS to leverage UbiSoft...

Such as raising the license costs in future.

Or dragging their heels certifying a game so that it misses the lucrative holiday launch window)

Providing inferior support during development.

But ultimately I think Ubisoft could easily call MS / Sony's bluff, and do what they want. A console is nothing without games, and would MS / Sony really want to ris... #15.2

Exactly. It's adding Kinect / camera / mic functionality in sensible and useful ways that has been missing.

Using the camera to lean in Isolation is a good feature.

Head tracking in racing games can be done well (not a fan myself, but know some people really like it)

The voice recognition for navigation in Forza Horizon 2 is brilliant.

Kinect and PS Camera have their uses But specifically with MS they have been trying to... #11.1

For navigating the UI, Kinect is pretty poor

The vast majority (all?) Kinect games are very poor

The implementation of Kinect for hardcore games is poor.

So by all accounts it seems to be a failure.

However, in Forza Horizon 2, saying 'Anna Nearest Event / Garage etc' is such a handy feature, and adds hugely to the game.

I could call up the map, move the cursor to the place I want to go to set the rou... #15

In the UK the price of PS+ is the same as Xbox Gold. So if Sony raised the price in the UK then no, I wouldn't be happy as I would bet MS would do the same, and gaming is expensive enough already.

However, PS+ is cheaper than XBox Live in many countries, so I guess there's wiggle room there to raise some prices - but I would expect a certain amount of uproar about it.

But then again.. Looking at the state of DriveClub, maybe Sony need to invest more... #5

Wow, I'd kinda assumed this one had just melted away like the Stargate Worlds MMO. #1

'Bigots' is a better definition than 'racists'.

Bigot: Someone who is intolerant toward people who hold different opinions.

But yeah, I am also playing XB1 more than PS4 at the moment - but I really don't like the XB1 controller much compared to DS4. Build quality and comfort is worse than the 360 controller and especially DS4. As for XBL versus PSN - I think it's a wash these days. #25.1

Neither console is really standing out with amazing AAA exclusives right now.

Solid, but forgettable, is the watch word for this console gen so far.

Forza Horizon 2 is the main exclusive game I am playing - and I look forward to trying the PS+ version of DriveClub when it eventually launches. Other than that it's wait and see if the holiday line up is any better for exclusives.

Multiplats are what I'm playing the most - and unless th... #28
