One could make the argument that had the whole Xbox controversy not been a factor in the thought process of gamers, then Rise of the Tomb Raider would have gained even more acclaim from both gamers and critics (Games of the Year).
this really is a great game - whether you buy it day one or wait until it's discounted, it's one that i think you shouldn't miss.
Tha game is was love by the critics what is this guy talking about lol and this sold more then SF5
Meant Game of The Year type of acclaim. Bet it would've gotten more consideration last year if it was a multi-plat at launch.
I don't really believe that. It was a good game, but GOTY contender? That's a bit of a stretch. When you have games like MGSV which was solid outside the story and repetative missions, FO4 which moved the series forward in many ways, Bloodborne which was about as solid as they come, W3 which was a highly anticipated and critically acclaimed title, Rocket Legue which was just damn fun, Life is Strange which took interactive stories to new levels, Splatoon which brought something fresh to MOBA's, and many more, ROTTR just seemed like little more than what the first game offered in a more open hub world.
Everyone knows this game gets hate because it was a timed exclusive
Can you blame them? It's 1 year. What does SFV have to do with this!?
It was a good game, and a nice entry in the Tomb Raider series, but it's nowhere near amazing.
its just as good as another exclusive game thats considered amazing which is very similar...
You think QB is very similar?
Crazy over the top set pieces? I might pick it up if so. Uncharted 4 dropped the ball on that front.
I don't think I've seen anyone say it's an outright bad game. At least not beyond some trolls here or there, and most of the PS4 fans seem to believe that it would be a good game. I don't think the "acclaim from gamers and critics" really is at issue here, as it was received well enough critically, and everyone that's played it seems to believe it's a good game. The problem some people have with it doesn't have anything to do with the quality of the game itself, just the politics surrounding it's release. Will it be the best game on PS4 this fall? To some maybe. But I think saying it will be the best, and that a lot of the negativity is misplaced which is causing people to see it differently is just wrong. There are a lot of potentially great games coming out this fall...so much so, no one would possibly have time to play them all, and for many, they are content to wait it out for a price drop on this game due to the politics involved. I wouldn't discourage anyone from playing it. It has it's flaws like any game out there, but it certainly is a really good game. However, if you play it on release, or wait it out, it's still going to be just as good, so one can decide for themselves if they wish to play it sooner, rather than later for whatever reason they wish.
