Carefully detailed, highly customisable, and buoyantly uncynical, Hot Wheels Unleashed is a surprising and brilliant arcade racer.
Wow was not expecting these scores. Will pick the game up!
IGN always give AAA games good scores. 9s aren’t rare for sites like this
No they don’t
Have you played a Hot Wheels game in the last 3 decades? They are anything but AAA budget titles.
@ 1st Yeah, they do. @2nd So what about old games? This one is. Their bread and butter is AAA games selling well. Go to the worst reviewed games of all time, their will be very little AAA games on that list.
Omfg thank the bejesus I wanted this game badly
It sounds like one of the best arcade racers ever made
Must admit I was expecting fives and sixes from what I'd seen before. Fair play to them for the level of care and detail in the presentation they really went above and beyond.
Surprised they didn’t give this a ten too . Scores are f’d these days . Deathloop 10s but it isn’t . Kena got tens not a ten , good game but not a ten . I’m not saying this isn’t a good game but so many games getting tens last few weeks and it’s f’d . Standards gone down ?
Stop with this stupid narrative. Their opinion is that Deathloop is a 10....what does it have to do with hot wheels?
I actually agree, good word choice as well... He is creating a narrative. Tho very surprised by all three: Hot Wheels, Kena, and Deathloop
That's because the reviewers don't review a game based on your option.
@hyadera The person screeching “subjective” is the correct person
Hyadera Reviews exist because someone had a personal experience with any given game and that makes them inherently subjective.
A reviewer is just a person.. if he gives a game a 10 then it's because he liked the game so much that it deserved a 10 for him. That is his opinion about it. That does not mean that the game wil be automatically a 10 for you to. It's a personal thing. People who cry about reviewers giving high scores to games really need to understand this....
games are also just getting objectively better.
I agree. Controls, graphics, and performance are all usually done well now. Presentation, story, characters and atmosphere are now what makes games stand out.
I think more than ever its the designers who make or break the game. There's so many tools available to developers (Unreal, etc.) that are high quality.
And standards have never been lower.
I have seen plenty of 10s for Death Straining. A game I think looks fantastic, but absolutely hate the "gameplay". I get why some like it, but it just wasn't for me. I am still very impressed with the Graphics the game has, even on the base PS4. That is why reading multiple reviews, from reputable sites is something I almost always do before buying a game. This looks hella fun though. I had a ton of fun playing the Hot Wheels Forza 3 expansion. I was hoping for a Horizon 4 Hot Wheels DLC, but that didn't happen. That is okay though. I will gladly pick this up. I am almost looking forward to this, as much as I was for MK8, when it og came to Wii U. Also Kena, looks really good. It reminds me a little of StarFox Adventures, and Beyond Good and Evil. I want to buy it, but would really like to play it,on PS5. One day I will finally get one. If I don't find a PS5 soon, I might just get it for my PS4. It will still be good, just not as pretty, as it is on PS5.
Looks cool but I'm waiting for a sale on this one.
As soon as I saw gameplay for this, I knew it looked special
My son and I cannot wait for this. Even better, he has no idea it is coming out this week
looks like another kart racer with that gameplay choice. Maybe should have done something like Motorstorm RC, then it would be truly special IMO.
From the videos I've seen, this looks like a blast. The locales look cool; the game just looks really fun.
It looks so fun, like a remake of Hot Wheels: Stunt Track Driver from 1998 lol. The fact you can make your own tracks and drive them split screen is awesome.
