I think its a decent game btw i just found the site that gave this score kinda strange to review an xbox game. Its like Playstation universe gave driveclub 95, wouldnt these sites obviously give exclusives high scores?

Kingdomcome2471455d ago

I agree, but this game has received loads of nines, as well as a few perfect scores.

May i ask how this doesn't get flagged for trolling, but a positive Xbox comment i made on an Xbox article did here?

N4G man i tell ya

polow got sol1455d ago

He's using a quote from the game have a sense of humor

bleedsoe9mm1455d ago

even the smallest little touches in this game make me laugh with glee

TheWackyMan1455d ago

Who would have thought that a site dedicated to xbox, would give an xbox exclusive game a decent score.

Fireseed1455d ago

Gee who would have thought someone would inevitably point out that utterly brain dead blanket statement?

Jason_Plays_PC1455d ago

Well you have a point wackyman you will notice playstation universe giving driveclub its highest score, i dont see the point of clearly biased sites posting a review, wouldn't they get into trouble if they didnt?

Bathyj1455d ago

So what are they supposed to do, not review it?

Jason_Plays_PC1455d ago (Edited 1455d ago )

I dunno really isnt it like Ford reviewing the Ford Focus and giving it 10/10 or giving the Ford escort 9.5/10.

I dont see the point especially if they count towards official aggregates.

Im not a console gamer either nor getting at anything here..(I Plan to play it at a friends)

Bathyj1455d ago (Edited 1455d ago )

Well its up to you if you agree with their opinion or not. Theyre a games site, theyre going to review games. If theyre biased people will soon realise and pay them no mind.

Is this site run by Microsoft, or is it a site thats simply decided to focus on Xbox because its not the same thing.

Again I ask, what would you have them do? Its not like their score is wildy over what other reviews have been saying.

who would have thought that nearly every site has given SSOD a good score.

Sony troll angry no get play good game like FH2 or SSOD!!!! FH2 and SSOD get 85% meta, DC get 75% and Lords get 65%. Not fair!!!! /sarc....

Metacritic keeps rising. Now almost 85%. Seems like the 1st 5 reviews out of the gate were hit pieces by Sony fanboys putting it at 65%, because it's been all 8s and 9s since then. Good job Insomniac.

And yes if a mag has Sony, Playstation, Xbox or Microsoft in the title - ignore the review.

Btw the console that is really killing it is the WiiU. Mordor, FH2 and SSOD are hitting around 85% meta... that's not even top 10 for WiiU.

1. Rayman Legends 93.00%
2. Super Mario 3D World 92.91%
3. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD91.08%
4. Bayonetta 2 90.94%
5. Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut 89.30%
6. Shovel Knight 88.86%
7. Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition 88.86%
8. Skylanders Swap Force 88.44%
9. Mario Kart 8 88.37%
10. Bit.Trip Presents...Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien 87.36%

"Metacritic keeps rising. Now almost 85%."

It was 83 yesterday and it's 82 now.

This game has made me laugh better than any game in recent memory except for GTA 5. I absolutely LOVED the GameFAQs and NeoGAF references, too!

Kingdomcome2471455d ago

That's hilarious that they threw that in there. I've never seen anything quite like that.
