finally a 10/10 for Starfield

VenomUK271d ago

There’s no 10/10 from IGN usa. But it’s still a 10/10 from IGN Japan et al. In this way, if there is a reporter that decides to go rogue, like has happened here, and given their opinion there will still be multiple other IGN websites that will have got the memo and can cancel out the score and maintain the long term sponsorship with its leading partner that is also a leading partner of the Verge..

Someone (Raidenblack) submitted 5 different IGN Review scores all around 9 for Starfield today. Like IGN Spain, Brazil, Japan..France...I don't remember a similar situation.

All IGNs except USA gave Starfield 8 or above

Never seen like this before. Has there been any games where reviews from IGN (different contries) are submitted here. It's always been the main parent IGN.

Finally an IGN review that discusses the details.

neutralgamer1992272d ago

Not surprising how some reviews are so split in their opinion but if we look at all the reviews the lesson of the story is this game is very good

Which is very good for us gamers to enjoy. I hope some of the complaints and bugs are fixed before the launch in their day one patch

shinoff2183272d ago

Agreed. I do have concerns about the planets limits, for an open world rpg that kinda sounds like it blows but it's not a deterrent to me

outsider1624271d ago

For me i don't mind the planet limits. It's what they add in the planets im interested. Heck, take 500 planets rather if there's more details filled in.

Exactly why so many outlets don't issue a score it can be and often is received incorrectly

Starfield's recent player spike is good, but it needs its Cyberpunk 2077 moment now

Starfield's recent player spike is a good sign, but Bethesda desperately need to line up their Cyberpunk 2077 moment.

I feel like the second big update that releases late this year will do just that. Part of the story expansion is also new means of transportation on planets.

A good DLC could turn some heads. The Destiny games got momentum that way too.

What player spike?

I checked steamcharts through the link in the article and it went from 8,000 to 11.500, so yea 20% but when the game peaked at 330,000 It's safe to say that the actual effect of this update was negligible.

LostPotato5d ago

Doubt it'll ever get redemption. As many developers have said in various interviews it's beyond saving.

Just release the mod tools and expansion and move on.

Cyberpunk 2077 had some strong bones i disliked it on launch because I could see the potential I could see the strengths of what they wanted to achieve but it wasn't done yet
