Telegraph: Sucker Punch's PS4 tribute to Akira Kurosawa is gorgeous to behold but its sparse open-world and bloated mechanics has it falling short
I knew this game is "meh" the moment I saw the gameplay.
Ha. Said no one ever
Same here, the game visually looks amazing, but I play games for gameplay first. I have already played this game multiple times before.
Well you should never play a third-person action game, a first-person shooter, a racer, a platformer, a beat em up or an RPG again.
Sure you did bud. Tell me, do you go onto the significantly more positive reviews to say this? Or just wait to pop on when one fits with your predisposed beliefs?
This is how i felt about second son. Nothing interesting to do
I played that one, just give me back the time I wasted playing it.
Wow their was like nothing to do at all on the streets. Spiderman was the same. Great games still but lacking in ground work. Once your on the ground its just empty with unkillable npcs and cars walking around.
Yeah because Spider-Man was known for all his work on the ground and interacting with traffic.... Do you people even listen to yourselves?
What TF would Spider-Man be doing just chilling on the streets....walking around & shopping? lmao.
6 out of ten? That seems a little low. Maybe I’m wrong but they give 8 and 9 to every assassin Creed and call of duty every year. Game reviews are getting so pointless they need to have a new system in place
I don't see how anything that looks beautiful plays beautiful and is fun can get a 6.
This is, according to this person. That's how opinions work.
Yep and I'm fine with that. As long as like Cooper said they are consistent.
Different reviewers different opinions. Again, that's how opinions work. You can only expect consistency from specific reviewers not websites as a whole. So unless you have specific reviewers who lauded a game for one aspect and panned another for the very same aspect then your argument is moot.
That's why game reviews should go back to the way they were in the old times with more fields to score: 1. Graphics and Resolution, 2. Graphic Art and Visual Presentation 3. Sound and Music 4. GamePlay and Frame Rate 5. Game Content 6. Fun Factor 7.Overall Score That Way you could make better judgement
Imortus I agree. It should be broken down into categories. Too many reviewers are all to keen to point out one aspect they didn't like, and then feel like it's their obligation or duty to make some sort of a stand and let everyone know and punish the final score while not giving full credit to all the other things the games did right. At least if it was broken down into categories you could still have your say about the parts you didn't like and score accordingly but give credit to everything else that was on point.
I'm really surprised by the reviews this is getting. I expected mostly 9s
the same reviewers gave assassin creed games 8 and 10. they are consistent reviewers. they praise one game for having a certain mechanic and blame the other game fro having it. there aren't many games that pooled of a giant world with no repetition
This is sucker punch. I will review the game myself as after watching videos and developer diaries etc. I don’t believe half the reviews I see. I don’t believe 10’s anymore than 5’s or 6’s. No one game suits all. I preordered and can not wait to be a samurai. I have faith in this developer and hopefully it’s my cup of tea. I have noticed lately on so many games that review scores are all over the place. Many, many games. That’s why lately I just don’t trust the majority of them. Last of us 2 also got a little burned by reviewers but I’m on my second play through and I still find in intense. Just a side note on one review that made me chuckle regarding last of us 2. Quote “this game would have been a 10 but it’s single player only so I gave it a 6”. lol, too funny. If the game accomplishes well what it intended to do it’s a good game. You may not like the game but some people need to review games for what it is and what it is trying to do and that’s it. Don’t compare last of us to call of duty please. Rant done but thanks for listening.
