"Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is like fine dining: a high-quality experience that's over way too soon, leaving you hungry and clutching a fat bill." - Karan Pradhan, First Post
It's definitely a good game but at £50 for a short story, its gonna leave people wanting more. If it was £25 and £45 with SM Remastered then it would be closer to the right price
To each his own but is 8 to 10 hours playtime for a game considered short? Sounds amazing to me
Ghosts took me about 25 hours and the first spider-man took me about 19 hours on my first play throughs. This looks to be about half, which Insomniac told us a while back. Also, this is really only a SP game, so being that short should be reflected more in the price.
8-10 hours for a story in a multiplayer game? Sure that's not short! But a full-price singleplayer only game. Yeah 8-10 hours isn't a lot
Pretty sure it’ll be less than 8. We’ll see the time for blind playthroughs on YouTube.
8-10 hours for a SP is OK. Resident Evil 2, one of my favorites, can be beat in less than 3.
Yes 8-10 hours for a full price game is too short.
People who complain about price don't take inflation and cost to develop games into account. Plus you're getting consoles at near cost. A little gratitude, jeez.
It's okay not to like everything Sony does. Geeez
You don't take into account that despite inflation, people's wages haven't significantly increased in the last 20 years, they're pretty much stagnant, so prices go up but wages stay the same, what does that mean? Things cost more now. Add on top of that the fact that video games sell more than ever so they can recoup costs that they could not years ago. Add on top of that the fact that licensable engines and a middleware for anything you can imagine makes game development easier than ever, because you don't have to make an engine from the ground up every time you want to make a game, you don't even have to keep updating an in-house engine, you can just license an existing engine with incredibly detailed documentation and support.
Tbh every resident evil (except 6 which is bloated) the first 3 uncharted games, every DMC and plenty of other AAA games are in the 8-10 mark
Sony can't take them enough to complain. Good for you Sony. Fleece em.
this is probably the 1st time i've ever seen a review take price into account.
You ever heard of firstpost.com? Literarily the first time I've ever heard of the site on N4G, and I've been here for years. If this site is going to complain about price for how long the game is, they had better do that for every single game they review from here on out.
LOL they're not even on opencritic.com let alone metacritic. They are no name loser looking to cash in LOL in the first sentence there is bad english. "The first time I even heard" LMAO
Price is often taken into account, do you think alot of low budget indie games could compete score wise with a $100,000,000 game on an even level. Trust me if untitled goose was $70 it wouldn't be in a game of the year conversation. Personally I think they should mention collectors edition in reviews to point out what your investing the extra money in.
I think it should be brought up in the review for sure, but I don't think it should count towards the scoring. If a game is overpriced, it doesn't automatically become better once it goes on sale. It becomes a better value, certainly, but not a better game.
You must be new to gaming since The Order: 1886 was ripped apart for being a $60 game with only 6 hours of content.
You new to gaming?
GTFO it was no damn secret is wasn't a full games length as first one. Plus he played ps4 version
He was talking about the price vs the length of the game.
Dude obviously gave it a bad review because he didn't get a ps5 and a ps5 version of Miles Morales
Finally a review that mentions how short it is. Should of just been DLC for the first game and put the resources towards the 2nd one.
You can't really blame Sony for releasing it as a standalone expansion. AAA launch titles are usually rushed or delayed (see Halo Infinite) so it makes sense to release a game of this nature at launch. Plus... it's Spiderman, people are going to buy it no matter what. As long as people are aware of what it isn't (a sequel) then there's no problems.
First game already had DLC. It’s a different character and wound up AAA. Seen it before in Lost Legacy, Ground Zeroes, Halo 3: ODST.
There was already 3 dlcs for the first that they sold at 9.99 for the trio. This is half a game again. So bit more than dlc.
* finally a review that's not on opencritic or metacritc that matches up with your opinion on something you haven't played
Full price? Uh if you get it without the ps4 game included it is $50 bucks. Games this gen are $70. Last I checked $50 is $20 less than $70. Now if you want the ultimate edition with the upgraded Spider-Man it is 70--- 20 for Peter Parker 50 for Miles Morales. If we are talking the PS4 version it is $50. Games last gen were $60. Last I checked $50 is $10 less than $60. Also known as 2 out of 2 selling at Not Full Price.
83% the price for a game that's half as long and re-uses the open world from the last game. Should've been 40 or even 30. The Lost Legacy, which people love to compare this too, was a totally new adventure, close to as long as UC4, and yet 40 bucks. Not trying to be a hater, I'll actually be playing MM becuase I'm excited for it, but this isn't a very fair/pro consumer price point for what the game is.
"The Lost Legacy, which people love to compare this too, was a totally new adventure, close to as long as UC4, and yet 40 bucks." Not true. TLL was 7 hours compared to UC4's 15 hours. And prices have shifted this gen as BrainSyphoned pointed out so this game is very much in line with TLL. https://howlongtobeat.com/g... https://howlongtobeat.com/g... "Not trying to be a hater, I'll actually be playing MM becuase I'm excited for it, but this isn't a very fair/pro consumer price point for what the game is." That is the ultimate judge on whether a product is being sold at the correct price point: will they buy it? Hate or not, but you can't blame someone else if you are going to purchase a product that you think costs too much.
Full price? Who ripped this reviewer off?
more like what deals has the reviewer been getting to get games at 50 dollars new on average
He got it early aswell so given I have never heard of the site before and I've been on here and perusing most gaming sites for... more than a decade now either how did he get a review copy sent to him or how did he get someone to break the street date by what must be like a week....
i think a 29.99 or even a 34.99 is fully fair. i would not buy it for 49.99 when i do get a ps5 i will get ahold of this its the best graphics out there
I agree. part of me wanted to just buy it to have the new thing but I still need to beat the dlc on spiderman so hopefully it goes down in price when i finish or I'll just play other games
Just being honest, most games aren’t worth full price. That’s why I buy 99% of my games at a discount. Miles Morales is also one of the first games with the $10 next gen up charge. I don’t like it and I don’t plan to pay it. There will be deals eventually.
It’s not a full priced game though and reviewers said it’s half the length of the first game clocking in at about 12 hours. I don’t think that’s too short.
That pricetag is the reason I will not be buying this till it hits the $40 or less mark. The same goes for any $70 game. The smartest thing we can do as gamers is just wait 6 months to a year before you start buying games. This way all AAA experiences will be around the $40 mark (more or less) Sony thinks that they can get away with $70 games and unfortunately maybe they will, not with me though. We all know that these games will shoot down in price quick and thats exactly when I'll strike. Sony will not dictate the price of my gaming, I will.
Where do they find these websites?
Idk why they didn't just make it dlc and have a SM remaster with it included for ps5.
Umm, so this is the bs. Why does price matter all of a sudden. Also in Canada full price games are $79.99 and now $89.99. I'm pretty sure $64.99 CAD isn't full price lol. For full price you get the OG with all DLC and the new game which is a much better deal than alot of games these days. This site better not ever rate a full price NSMB game anything but a ripoff then lol
Play it, plat it, trade it for Demons Souls.
As excited as I am for this game, the fact that it's half the length of the original and is literally re-using the open world, yet is still 50 (just BARELY cheaper) is indeed not a great sign. This isn't an Uncharted Lost Legacy situation. That game used the same engine as UC4 yes, but it was closer to it in length, the levels/worlds were totally unique, and yet it was still only 40 bucks. Re-using the city and not expanding upon it makes sense for this game, and it's the reason we're getting it just 2 and a half years after the first one! But imagine if the sequel to Horizon re-used the same world map and was half the length of the original, yet was still close to the same price. It isn't a good trend to set. Personally I'll be getting the platinum on MM and then selling it, I'll still have the original remaster to play (speaking of which locking the upgraded 2018 game behind the $70 MM version is incredibly anti consumer. Should've been a free upgrade for existing owners or just do what days gone and Ghost did with a free 60fps back compat patch).
$70 for two new games is anti-consumer? Ok
There is little doubt that this will end up as a free PS Plus game in the future. Even so, it’s worth full price to play day one imo. Really looking forward to this on PS5, Thursday can’t come soon enough.
I wholeheartedly reject the notion that game length should determine value. A game like Ratchet and Clank on PS4 was 39.99. However I gladly wouldve paid full price for it. By comparison, No Mans Sky's game length is virtually endless and I regret paying 60.00 for it.
50 is the new 40 and 70 is the new 60. Idk why people are getting mad, it's not unreasonable to bring up the cost of a game in a review. Some people won't bend over and accept the price hike, it doesn't make em wrong just cause you're willing to buy a game at any high price because of blind fanboy reasoning
This is silly. What next? Judge games by dollar per hour rather than the quality of the game itself. This is the stuff of click bait and fanboys. Pure and simple.
I'm not sure if anyone remembers that only a few months ago, these same people were whining about games being too long...
It's not even fully priced lol
Probably go on sale between now and Christmas, be patient and buy it for (hopefully) $35-$40
This game isn't full priced? the game is 50 so 20 dollars cheaper than a full priced game.
If all there is to complain about is the price to game length ratio I guess it means its a fanatic game. If the price is a problem wait for a price drop or a deal somewhere, problems solved, concern and outrage averted.
Yong Yea said 12 hrs for campaign and almost 20 hrs for completionists.
