I remember being so hyped about "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" that when I saw it opening night in the theaters, I was disappointed. I watched it again about 10 years ago and thought it was awesome! Thus, I'm going to go with "maybe"... Mostly because of the amount of hype that this game is getting.

Only on days ending in "Y".

Will websites take full advantage of the hype around it in order to put out hate filled reviews, knowing that it'll piss legions of fans off and cause them to comment on the story, heating it up and driving more clicks to the site, rather than attempting to objectively review the game like professional gaming journalists would?

This must be painful for PlayStation fans. Week after week of what is coming and nothing to play makes while 3rd party and the competition are releasing a treasure trove of games via subs.

Now we're at speculating what a review over actual gameplay will be. Alright, back to Gears!

Let it be divisive.

100% agree. Too many games this gen have been safe bets in samey genres, whether its loved by everyone isn't important, I'm just glad to see Kojima being unafraid to go against the grain and put out something different.

I disagree.

I think the reviews will be divisive. But that’s like with anything. I’m personally really excited to play the game. Had me intrigued from the first trailer & after the gameplay trailer months back or whenever it was, I’m all in.

i don't think reviews matter. if i want a game - i buy it.

Welshy24d ago

I agree with you, but that wasn't the question we were asked lol. Whether we find them important or not, reviewers who both love and hate Kojima can't wait to get their hands on this and it's going to be crazy divisive imo.

nucky6424d ago

you're correct welshy. i was just trying to make my point that the question doesn't even need to be asked since it's a non-factor in the buying process.
