Junkie Monkeys: It was bound to happen eventually, but I honestly didn’t think Basement Crawl would turn out being the most panned game on the PS4.
and it should be...its horrible..biggest mistake I made.
Damn Really? I was going to get it. I also noticed it had a three star rating on the PSN store. Whats wrong with the game?
Clunky controls, it feels like a slower bomberman, horrible U.I (looks like it was made in paint). The game doesn't explain anything to you...really it doesn't. This game feels like it was pushed out too soon, I bought it with the intentions to play a game similar to bomberman, instead I get a laggy unfinished game, with 2 game modes (team deathmatch and deathmatch). Hope that explains enough to keep you away from it...for now anyway.
Thanks svoulis. Say no more. Point taken.
Well hopefully, they patch it up soon. I was excited to get this, as it looked like a fun couch coop, new twist to bomberman . And we haven't had a bomberman style game since ever.
Anything that doesn't have a 4-5 star on PSN store is probably crap. Almost everything is highly rated for some reason. Most things are bordering on 5 stars.
@ mochachino, honestly there are some great games that have three stars in my opinion. What I do is look at the rating and also look at how many people voted. Basement Crawl has over 2000 votes with an average of three stars. Thats crazy.
I remember watching a gameplay trailer on YouTube and thinking it looked slow. Also, a lot of the player characters were making directional mistakes so the controls looked worrisome. On top of that, I saw nothing that set it apart from bomberman, especially since the people playing weren't going for power-ups. I'm sad to see a game tank like this if it's true.
And this was made by the same guy who said that The Order was maxing out the PS4.... LOL
Watch the streams and you'll see how bad it is and how funny people are complaining about it.
Yeah it was a waste of $10
oh I thought it was shadowfall
i almost bought this the other night, when i was like 9 beers deep. glad i didnt.
Thats a shame, but I'm not surprised based off the gameplay / screenshots I saw. On a high note, at least this prevents the game from going free with Plus! For those of you that don't know, Sony "upholds" a 70+ metacritic score for Plus (at least in Europe). Sometimes a slightly lower game squeaks by (Malicious only had a 67), but they're rarely in that range or way below.
Wow I did not know that, and it explains why most Plus games are all pretty great. That's an honorable system. Thanks Sony!
Yup. I'm surprised they don't market that very often, since I typically only see it as a disclaimer on video ads or buried on the PlayStation Plus page. http://uk.playstation.com/p... "PS4, PS3 and PS Vita One Membership, Three Devices Access top-rated games*, cloud storage and exclusive discounts on your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems, too. It's all included in one membership. *Top-rated is based on a Metacritic rating of 70+."
it's also the reason why we're seeing very recent games on Plus. Besides the shortage of 70+ games, lol.
wow i didnt know that. No wonder the games are so good. :) P.S I live in Europe.
Maybe for PS3, but Sony doesn't uphold any quality standard for Plus games when it comes to the Vita. http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... And for PS4 they've already shown they don't have a problem going below that "70+" standard, so don't be so sure that Basement Crawl won't end up on Plus. I really hope it won't though. http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Those are all great games.
1) Chronovolt and Contrast were free on release, so the games were decided long before anyone reviewed them. With that being said, I am okay with Sony violating the "rule" if I get the game on release, which I am sure many would agree with. 2) I've only seen Europe state the rule (something I noted in my first post), so bringing up US games is irrelevant. That makes Modnation Racers the only remaining game that was free in Europe and even then we're talking a 62, not a 31 (half the score). With that being said, I also stated that they sometimes violate it, though we also don't know what Sony was/is planning. This could relate to a deal falling through or some sort of problem that lead to a change. We already know that Contast replaced Drive Club (due to the delay) and we saw God Eater Burst replace Orc Attack Flatulent Rebellion in the US and previously rumored games release differently than rumored (could have been a lucky guess, but I doubt that given the niche nature of some of the games). We also know Sony also makes deals well in advance (this probably doesn't help my case), like how we knew Secret Ponchos would be a plus game back in November and even 3 - 4 months later we don't even know when it will release.
US gets Modnation Racers:Road Trip this month and it is sitting at a low 63. Edit: Made my comment before I seen the others.
You know, posts like yoursdrive me insane. Seriously, how many disclaimers do I need to put in my post? "upholds" was in quotations, because they usually do, but not always. I directly stated that the rule applies to Europe, so it really doesn't matter what the US, Japan, or Asia does. I noted that sometimes they allow a slightly lower game to get by, but I quickly noted it was rare and never that low. In this case, Modnation Racers is a 62, which isn't a huge difference considering 10% of the reviews were in the 4/10 range and 24/51 (lets split the diff and say 1/2) of the reviews were 70 or higher. Most of the remaining ones were 6/10's, so those few really low scores (3 reviews were 3/10) simply tanked the average.
Malicious doesn't deserve 67.
Calm down man. I said it was a mistake. It's not that serious.
Feed it to the bone!
It'll be interesting to see what behemoth puts out on the xone.
that teaser trailer had so much promise... we didnt ask for this..
Gameplay made me think Bomberman, just without the man.
i was never going to jump out and buy this right away but i did think it looked decent. still if it goes cheap enough one day i might grab it.
Need to get used to it, the more ps4 is open the more crappy devs making horrible games. And ps4 it very, very open.
Just look at Bloober's track record
Bloober's full of goobers.
Assault Armies on Vita was OK. Controls were clunky, but gameplay was quite good.
I'll rather listen to a Justin Bieber album than to play this game again. Wasted 2 minutes of my life -______-
Dude.. Listening to Justin Biebers album is way worse.
True. There's nothing in the world worth suffering Bieber for (and you wouldn't even get a trophy/achievement - tragic)
Is it true, this game has no single player mode?
Nope just local multiplayer, and online multiplayer. 2 gametypes (Deathmatch and TDM) horrible U.I Game doesn't explain what each character is good for. you just join a game, select one and die a lot in a horrible lag fest of clunky controls and horrible response.
Ha, I did notice it had 3/5 stars on PSN & for any game no matter how rubbish to get below 4/5 it must be bad! (...worst review system in the world)
this is a fake bomberman, with a ugly graphic not worth the price
It would be nice if they bring back another Bomberman HD. The one on PS3 was fun, especially if you had a PlayStation Eye.
This is why some reviews actually matter. I'm glad I skipped the game now. Almost bought it.
Wow smh , so much hate for this game. I guess you people have never heard of patches before. I'm digging this game so far and know any small annoyances can be fixed with the inevitable patch thats coming. Give it time people.
This is why Sony needs to be strick and not allow everybody to make games on there systems. Bad games is why the Gaming industry crashed in the 80s. Nintendo came out and saved the industry by being pricks and only allowing quality games on there systems. Sony needs to do more of this or they are going to destroy the industry. Yes its only 1 game but 1 bad game will lead to another and another. I am hearing all this news with Sony opening doors for a lot of developers. There were reasons why there were doors in the first place.
Nintendo didn't save the gaming industry as Europe and Japan weren't effected by the "crash." http://www.youtube.com/watc... And it wasn't because the market was flooded with crappy games but it was flooded with too many home consoles and also the PC gaming market did not get effected by it. With or without Nintendo, gaming would still exist today. And with the internet and reviews, you can easily separate good games from bad games. So there really is no need to stop adding terrible games to the store as they don't stay in the spotlight for too long and the sales flow quickly slows down and eventually dies.
You haven't read the Gamers Guinness Book of Records 2014. Nintendo saved gaming because there were too many games flooding the market that were bad, people would pay full price for a game like ET on the Atari and turns out to be the worst decision they ever made. Gaming become popular again because Nintendo closed the doors on developers if there games didn't meet expectations. It made shopping for games worth the community money again. Some poor kid will end up spending his savings on this game for the PS4 and it will leave a bad taste in his mouth and will probably be turned off gaming for it. That's what Nintendo stopped, and where the Nintendo Quality Seal come from. I suggest you read it up. The Great Gaming Crash of 83.
I did, and only North America got effected like I said. http://vgsales.wikia.com/wi... If North America were the only ones effected, then consoles and games flourished everywhere else. So no, Nintendo did not save gaming, it was still alive and growing. "By 1982, computers such as the Commodore 64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum had launched in Europe and were selling extremely well there, dominating the European games market and growing throughout 1983/1984. The significantly lower price of computer games (some of which cost just 1% of the price of a computer) strengthened this domination and helped quickly create a mass computer games market. By the time of the 1983/1984 North American console crash, the European video games industry was mostly computer-based and most games were made by European publishers. This allowed the European market to continue to thrive despite the crashing American console market." "n Japan, both the hardware and software portions of the gaming industry were separate from the North American or European markets. Thus, events that related to the American or European gaming industries had little to no effect on the Japanese consumer. The Japanese preferred homegrown gaming platforms such as the Nintendo Famicom console, the Sega SG-1000 console, and the MSX computer. All of these were launched in 1983 and all of them saw steady growth throughout 1983/1984, a period when the US industry was shrinking and collapsing." Also the reason Atari crashed was for over producing crappy games that no one wanted and cartridges were expensive back in the 80s,so no profit was made. These indies of this generation are in digital format so no damage is really done financially if a crappy game is released on the online store. We live in a world where advertising and the internet motivates people on what to buy so there really is no loss anymore if a game doesn't meet the standards of being acceptable. Unless it's a AAA title in physical format, that's different, but those are carefully brought forth and mostly stay at 70+ review score backed by tons of advertising that people buy these games no matter what and profits are still made. Then the cycle continues and we're always going to have gaming, never will there be an industry crash unless it's filled with Capcoms then that's a different story but that's not how it is presently.
I dont see the bog problem, its not full hd but its a great looking game. Lots of people enjoyed it thats all that matters.
A nobody developer tries to ripoff bomberman and fails? Whaaaaat? Noooooo. Pfft.
Damn, I was hoping for a cool bomberman like game with a horror aspect to it.
