Graphics: 10 Gameplay: 9 Sounds: 9 Longevity: 9 Plus: World is big and beautiful, an enormous task and something to see, the open structure made The bad: Unnecessarily slow-tempo early
Graphics gets a 8 at most... overall this game i s just average..and it's not for everyone ..
Why not a ten?
Play the game first, then talk later, oh yeah... you don't own a 360, then stfu. I tried out the demo, the graphics are very good, but it's just not my kind of game.
Graphics a 10? Yes. I bet you think it's not a 10 cause it doesn't look life-like like Killzone 2 or Uncharted.. The art style is not life-like so it can't receive a 10 in graphics? Get over it, bro. The graphics are very good for the art style.
If LBP could score a 10 (doesn't look as good as Uncharted, MGS IV or KZ 2) in the graphics department, I don't see why this game shouldn't.
but people comparing it with resistance 2? It's gotta be the joke of the day
"overall this game i s just average..and it's not for everyone .. " And the same could be said about the way overratted LBP. At least Banjo's an actually game and not just a 2d piece of crap where really the only fun comes in for those that like to make levels. SUre this has nothing to do with it but you should think before you talk sometimes. LBP will end up like the Wii just sitting there.
It's an art STYLE. Like Okami, de Blob, World of Goo, Pixeljunk, Fat Princess, fl0wer, echochrome, Castle Crashers, Tales of, or Geometry Wars. You don't need to have lifelike graphics in order to receive top marks. But I guess you wouldn't understand that.
I heard this game doesn't have platforming
Screw IGN UK. This is like the 3rd or 4th 9/10 ive seen so far out of around 7 reviews.
I heard that the lady that is your avatar doesn't know where Russia is, and she's the governor of Alaska..
the graphic isn't nice :(
great review, this game is going to be amazing
lol... I just spit my drink all over. Thanks for the laugh
hahaha yes i know, i owe you that, 'cause everytime you call resistance 2 a AAA game, man i laugh almost to cry haha
I've never called anything AAA - so laugh away. I call R2 a great game. Highly addicting and enjoyable.
So why can't Banjo be highly addicting and enjoyable? Get lost..
I really don't think you should say that, I've been a banjo fan for as long as i can remember, and though people have said BK: N&B has abbandoned it's roots, it really hasnt. If anything, it's expanded it's roots. Now hear me out before thumbing me down, though you may not believe my arguement because of my name (lol), I think you should give the demo another try, if you have a 360. Here's why the game actually strengthens the core banjo audience: 1) Its huge on collecting - The banjo franchise has been known for the collecting aspect, and in this game it's extremely rewarding. 2) The game has beautiful worlds and graphics - Banjo kazooie and Tooie were known for this 3) Its rich in humor - Everyone knows this aspect of the banjo franchise. Rare has always had a strange sense of humor and it's very common throughout the game 4) It has Stop and Swop! - This explains itself... Sorry for going crazy, but I really hate it when another review is posted, and some commenter just immediately blurts out, "FLOP!".
great review as always i will definitely pick this game up after i have finished the awesome graphical master piece (Gears of War 2).
Guess you'll be trolling the N4G comments, then.
Graphics: 10 !??? are you sh|tting me? phail review
if people agree with what the review says then suddenly the reviewer is the most credible person in the world but if not then all of a sudden its like the reviewers are pathological liars. some people need to stop being so damn hypocritical. Just accept the review as an informed opinion and use it to be constructive. Im not a so called ''fanboy'' but from the general mood on this website id have to say that if this was a ps3 game then people would be constantly praising the review. These really pathetic ''console wars'' are something that id hoped id never have to touch upon, but when there are so many moronic people throwing it into your face in alot of different threads, theres only so long you can look at such hypocrisy and idiocy from people and not say anything. Theyre all just a couple of chips no matter which way you spin it, so why would you care which one you have to get (if not both) to play the games that you enjoy. You can tell who the younger people on here are (or the ones that need to get out more), because they get far to involved with a few computer parts.
If the graphics suck on this game, then LBP's graphics suck as well because they don't look realistic. Hey, Okami didn't look realistic, but scored high in graphics. Some things aren't meant to look like real life. I havn't played the game, so I won't comment on the review. I'll play it in a few weeks after Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2.
Granted, Banjo Kazooie has great graphics in its own style, but LittleBigPlanet DO have realistic graphics. Have you seen the the bricks, the soccer ball, the wood, sackboy, etc?. The textures are the best seen in a console ever, and the physics are as realistic as possible too. Resistance 2 is not targeted to look realistic, that´s what people are saying that Gears of War 2 has better graphics, but is not. At least the same, but not inferior at all.
your avatar? isnt that the Austrian dude that imprisoned and raped his kids for like 14 yrs? if so thats repulsive. And no I am not refering to sackboy above me.
dude the avatar is just wrong... you can't make everyone look funny by kitting them out with a Snake eyepatch and bandana
Hate to say this game isn't my cup of tea,but regardless,I'm glad MS might start getting more of their monies worth out of Rare.
the only reason Rare was truly great back then was because of Free Radical but now those guys are independent and are working on the next installment of the incredible series that spiritually succeeded Goldeneye...
an amazing game???? In these days, I've realized that xbox fans have been geting ahead of themselves. For example: R2 is a flop? Gears of War 2 is supposed to be the biggest game on the xbox360, outdone by Mgs4 and LBP.
Sorry to burst your immensely egotistical bubble, but there can be more than 2 amazing games on current consoles.
Guess ill help a bit with the translation: Good: The world is big/huge and beatiful...lots of things to do and see, open mission system (meaning that you can pretty much decide what to do) Bad: The beginning is too long. note: The sites fairly young tough, unlike other sections (except international) Finnish one was founded just few months a go, same goes with the reviewers that are by no means bad, just a bit less experienced than maybe Pelaaja, or Pelit.
Bubbles for you. Thanks for the translation!
fvck ign uk. fvcking noob reviewers. sony must pay them...
oh cry more.... i love how when Microsoft are proven to pay off sites like Variety suddenly the 360 fanbots try to point the blame on Sony.... for some reason now apparently Sony pays off IGN???? you are pathetic child you know very well which of two companies employ dirty, underhand tactics such as paying off reviewers
Looks like someone is digging really hard for good reviews of this game...
If you truly think a game is good, then you would buy it despite the reviews it gets. End of Story. Lets end the flame wars on N4G.
http://www.metacritic.com/g... Try again.
i was being sarcastic we all know that the " paying off" comment is a sony fantic comment. must you be so blind? put sony's ball's to the side for 1 sec and look at all the reviews, most are 9's and 8's thats a far cry from 6.5. you sony fantics and your conspiracy theories.
