"Sometimes, when you review a game after all the other reviews came out, you wonder whether or not you got sent a completely different version of the game." Or maybe you just have a different opinion than the others. What a terrible way to start a review.
I can sort of see where he is coming from. It can be a strange feeling when you are playing a game that has received universal praise and yet you seem to be the only person who finds it average (or even worse; bad). Obviously he doesn't LITERALLY believe he was sent a different version of the game. But not liking a game that other people love can leave you feeling like you're missing something or that everyone else is "in" on something that you aren't.
I don't think it's terrible. It's a legitimate thought that runs through a person's head. I feel the same way when I pick up a game sometimes. I don't get what's so terrible about it. He's acknowledging that his opinion differs from the norm.
Reads like a click bait article where the author benchmarks his experiences against other reviews.
I completely disagree already just going by the intro up there, but I'm still going to read this to see what they have to say. 5min later... Garbage article. Deliberately misspelled Silmarillion, maybe to show how much he doesn't care about LotR, talks about what it borrows from other games but doesn't mention the Arkham series(combat) 2/10
Thx I'm not waste my time;) btw is 9/10 at least;)"
Sounds like this reviewer has an agenda rather than an honest review..
I love the game. Think it massively improves on elements it's taken from Batman and Assasins Creed. The nemesis system is great and I'm sure they can make it more complex in a sequel. Things like being hunted down by a pissed off Orc that you thought you'd killed is a pretty awesome surprise. Although there's only 20 main story missions I'm enjoying the side missions a lot more than in other games. Maybe one of the first games I can actually see myself buying a DLC for.
Yeah this game sucks!
