The latest PSM3 review scores including inFamous, Red Faction: Guerilla, Ghostbusters, and FUEL.
If they gave inFAMOUS a 71, then Ghostbusters must be amazing!!
Ghostbusters Has Been Getting Some Good Reviews I Hope Its Got A Coop If Not A MP
PSM3 are part of future publishing network and guess what: they are part of GAMESRADAR, EDGE and CVG. http://www.futurenet.com/fu... they are hardly going to break ranks on their reviews since they share alot of staff furthermore eurogamer network has close links with edge sharing a lot of staff for review purposes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... psm3, edge, cvg, eurogamer and gamesradar have reputation for lower reviews for ps3 exclusives than other comparable exclusives. conspiracy?? haven't got time to dwelve into actually statistics so maybe someone should do an exclusive by exclusive comparison to see if this observation is true in fact future publishing also publish the opm which often rates ps3 exclusive games below metacritic average score. even gamecentral has close links with edge and future publishing having shared editors (they gave God of War 2 a 6 and Killzone a 7). http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... top 20 gamecentral 2007 game did not include a single eclusive ps3 game top 4 gamecentral 2008 game were all 4 xbox available games (2 exclusives 2 multi). Overall just 2 ps3 exclusives in top 20 (metal gear solid didn't even make the list) and 5 exclusive xbox games. and the editor doesn't actually own a ps3 (is this really true?) http://www.teletext.co.uk/G... of the the 6 lowest reviews for infamous FOUR come from FUTURE PUBLISHING NETWORK, Eurogamer and Gamecentral which share close editorial links and staff. coincidence?
Red Faction is going to be success... FUEL got a 73%.. Still can't make up my mind if this is any good. Ghostbusters 85%? Lol.
What? you don't think Ghostbusters will be a good game? I think it looks awesome so far.
Fuel has been extremely divisive with critics, shame there isn't a demo.
Another AAA exclusive for ps3 in ghostbusters! I knew it all along >_> Red Faction Guerrilla looks to be a great game. Didn't really know anything about it up until recently.
Okay guys I don't wanna sound like a hater, but A PLAYSTATION MAG gave INFAMOUS a 71%. I can't wait to hear INFAMOUS fanboys excuses for this one, lol. Before u guys call me an xbot, I suggest u IM me at my PSN name: deadreckoning666. I decided on Prototype a while ago and I'm trying to figure out why I get hated alot for saying that I thk that Prototype is better. Immediately I get called xbot or fanboy. What the hell is up with people today? Why do I HAVE to chose INFAMOUS over PROTOTYPE if I have a PS3?
LMFAO ..keep trying lol
LOL With a demo available to download, people can make up there own minds
I don't like quite a few AAA titles and rate some that don't have high praise better. And why are you so insistent on letting everyone know InFAMOUS isn't AAA? Christ did it run over your dog or something. How about you get it into your "thick head" that just because it isn't to your taste it doesn't mean it isn't to everyone elses.
inFAMOUS is the most fun I have had this generation so far. Sucker punch are amazing developers and I could care less what some moronic reviewers think from a few magazines. If your on PSN you should have already played the demo and seen that the game is pretty freakin sweet by now. Hate all you want on it. I will admit it has a few flaws. Overall though it's the best open world game I have played this generation. The story is top notch and the acting/musical score/ characters/ plot/ development are all spot on. I can't say enough how much SP nailed it. I am a sony fanboy but to be honest I am one of the few who really hated MGS4 and I admired the graphics of KZ2 but would rather play COD4 anyday for MP/SP. That being said inFAMOUS is more then average and it won't appeal to everyone just like MGS didn't appeal to me. Sucker Punch are geniuses in my eyes and always have been. Edit: Oh and who cares about AAA anyway. Plenty of junk games dont get that status and plenty of great ones miss that "90%" or whatever forum people thinks qualifies a game to be AAA.
infamous would be a mid 8 game,and after playing I think I'm right,but thats a top score. I don't think I'll put the time into infamous yet though,I have started playing MGO again,(feels better than ever)and I got demon souls this morning,and whilst infamous is good,the other two are great and will eat my gaming time up,but it's nice that i can throw it on for a hour here and there and have fun playing it.
Nice try to dampen the spirits. Seriously.... it's personal preference. If you like Prototype more, then get it. Ya OK the game got 71.... Well that is always noted over the fact that countless other sources have given the game full marks and no one notes that (ya not even Metacritics). So more than 40-50 sites which have given the game the awesome 'must buy' status are stupid and the handful 5-6 reviews that give it a 7 are the ones used to gauge the game? And for your kind information, Prototype reviews aren't even out yet (at least from credible sources). If it scores greater than Infamous, then well and good. I will probably get both, but that doesn't mean that Infamous is a bad game. Just cause you can't afford both, the one you won't buy isn't always crap. I have played Infamous and love it. Just pass you judgement after playing the game and not by all the reviews posted. That 7 is absolutely pathetic.. and I stand by my statement. If Infamous is 7, on the same scale I would rate GTA4 a 5... Infamous is the best open world game at least for now. I can't believe how people could give GTA4 absolute 10s!!! The game was so boring and repetitive.. a huge step down from GTA:SA.. yet it gets 10s and Infamous with which I have had nearly twice the fun also get great reviews and none of them get posted on Metacritics... Seriously people there hate PS3 exclusives.
Stealth edit FTW?? ..f***in tool
How can you "think PROTOTYPE is better" though? Personally I wouldn't know either way...
infamous will be better than prototype. duh.
Motorstorm:PR is my favorite racing game this gen, but it only got a 82. Uncharted:DF is still one of the bet games on the PS3, but it's only at 89. R&CF:ToD was another "AAA" game for me, but it only got an 89, and Quest for Booty only got a 76. flOw only got a 71, but I it's better than that. Way better. GTA4 got a 98, but I couldn't get past 29% before I got bored with it. Fallout 3 with it's 91 was a big "meh." inFAMOUS is a blast to play and I don't care if Ron Paul himself came to my door and told me otherwise. I'm still gonna be collecting blast shards today.
Whatever man..... I hope you people aren't influenced to buy games by these so called journalists. Anyway, back to my inFamous session.
...why the hell would you stop, just to post in a stupid N4G thread? I smell BS. :)
Do you play every game you like 24/7? "...why the hell would you stop, just to post in a stupid N4G thread? I smell BS. :) " (0.<)
24/7 ? No. But, when I'm gaming...and really, truly enjoying a game...I don't voluntarily interrupt my fun by coming to this dismal place. I've been known to play games for an entire weekend, only stopping for the "necessities".
I'm on here at least every 6 hours or so. I don't care what game I'm playing. Getting some good ol' E3 leakage is awesome and I can never resist seeing the reviews for the game I am playing.
Like you (assuming), I have a life. I don't play any of my FAVORITE game for 24 hrs straight. Do yourself a favor and stop assuming a person like me would pause my game just to comment on N4G hoping people like you would react off of my BS comment. You've no idea what I was doing before logging on to here. Speaking of smelling BS, what you smell was probably your rancid body odor. Take care of that hygene.
I'm mainly targeting the people who are praising INFAMOUS but hating on prototype in the process. AND TRUST ME, I understand that people have different likes and dislikes, but comparing INFAMOUS to KZ2 or MGS4 as far as quality is concerned is a just cwazy by anyones standards. Personally, Im a METACRITIC kinda guy. I like to see EVERYONES opinions, except EDGE because those guys are straight up d-bags. Dogmeat eater: I agree, I don't know why people say that GS is biased. The problen is that the bigger sites like IGN and GT are giving the game 9's. But the smaller sites are giving it 8's and 7's. What I hate are people who see one or two reviews(IGN and GT) and instantly say AAA. lol It's stupid
1st MGS4, 2nd KZ2,3rd Infamous,4th LBP,etc. Infamous got a 9 from IGN, a 9 from Gamespot, a 9 from gametrailers. Those are really the only good reviewers. Some people think gamespot is biased which there not. Every review they've done is usually spot on.
They actually do good jobs at reviewing.
Their writing isn't even at high school level, it's really quite sad.
you trust IGn ? why don't you cross reference reviews and try the demo(s) to make your mind and decide for yourself ? i guess some people can't walk without holding someone else hand
AAA is an AAA experience regardless of genre,I could quite happily give it my own person "AAA" rating based on my own time spent with it. It's just pure fun,everything is fluid and seamless whilst playing it and it's a game I could quite easily sink alot of hours into. That's my opinion on the game. If it isn't to your taste fine,that's your opinion but stop trying to force your opinion onto others acting like it counts more than anyone elses. Trust me it doesn't,it REALLY doesn't.
i played infamous for about 3.5 hours last night. and man it seemed like so much more than a 70. hmmmmmm i guess thats my opinion. just like this 70 is this guys opinion. i think it's a 90 myself.it's funny how a game can range from a 70 for some, and all the way up to a 100 for others. but then again if you look at who rated it a 90 to 100, then you look who rated it under an 80, you can kind of figure it out. no name start up sites that need advertisement need to give it a crazy score other wise nobody would go to their sites. then theres edge boy they sure do use nice paper for their mags. thats about the only good thing i can say for them. anyways i can't wait to gamefly ghostbusters.
i ran up to a dude did a three hit melee ending in the flip kick off the building then force pushed him. as he was falling i jumped off the building as he was falling below me. i hit him with a sticky shocky grenade thing, and when he hit he blew up like 5 other reapers. then i thunder dropped in the middle of their dead bodies. man my little fingers were working like crazy. and it was awesome. i'd give that little performance a AAA rating. peace.
PSM3 can suck it .. inFAMOUS is one h3ll of a AAA title and experience for me and the majority out there too. ill go with IGN's Score thank you very much... plus they put IGN's and others scores on the covers of games sometime like Resistance 1.
Of course they're going to put good scores on the front of a box, it'll help it sell. Duh. Plus if you read PSM3's review they do justify the score.
Most UK sites have given it relatively low marks. First Eurogamer, then Teletext, then Edge and now PSM3. Only thing they have in common is they are all in the UK. Almost all North American reviews are 8 and above. Quite frankly the UK has a different taste in games sometimes than the North American crowd. I'm not sure why but it's true if you look at reviews from the UK on average and North American (or even Japanese) reviews. It almost seems to me like UK mags and web sites are anal-retentive and unable to just enjoy games for what they are, entertainment, not art. I LOVE Infamous personally and would recommend it to anyone who just wants to have fun playing a game.
I've found a legit Playstation mag, that doesn't bump up review scores like fanboys. I said it all along, inFAMOUS is just average. This will bring the metacritic score down even lower
Go play the freaking game before you say that! Anyone who likes open world suphero games should like infamous! If you dont like those kinds of games then you wont care for infamous! By the way mooks you seem to love to disregard every 9 and up this game gets. I wonder why? Its so obvious this game is subjective to different game tastes. Either you like it or you really like it. Nothing in between! Quit being such a damn bot all the time! Its getting fu**ing annoying and old!
IMO it's pretty safe to say that for MOST people inFAMOUS is AAA. At first everybody's expectations were very low and once released inFAMOUS became the sleeper hit. People that hate inFAMOUS are the ones that cant play it. I much prefer my 71/100 inFAMOUS than 98/100 GTA4. LOL This review is just one guy opinion, Im sure they dont know more than me what games I DO enjoy. Sony please keep those "AA" games coming :D. BTW, I hope GB is as good as those guys are making it to be. A demo would be very appreciated. Regarding Fuel it looks suspiciuos to say the least, 7.5 here, 8.0 from edge. Both from UK, I dont know if this is happening by chance. If GB is not that good, this PSM3 will seriously slip off my radar.
What happened to the whole "critics who score PS3 exclusives low are biased?" are we taking a new tactic now? I think inFamous is a solid 8. The animations are way too stiff to take seriously and I think the game is just a tad too long. For those that don't know me, which is all of you, an 8-10 is very much a must play for me. I'll replay at as an evil character, and I'm interested in collecting as much stuff as possible, but I'm not disappointed that there isn't more "life" in the open world environment and again, that the character animations from everyone but Cole and the Enemies is stiff. Also, I couldn't have cared less about Trish. Since we only know about their relationship through what we're told, there was never any connection between me and the character for me to care what happens to her. Or Zeke for that matter.
Infamous is the best game I have played in a long time. Enough said.
InFAMOUS 71%? No f*cking way. This game is a hell of a lot better. They need to review games more objectively, based on what the masses would want to play and not just put only THEIR OWN opinion into it. But well, that seems to be what amateur reviewers do.
Surely that defeats the purpose of having critics for anything then? :\
No, it just would be a nice to have critics who actually qualify as reviewers. Which means being open minded and have sensors for what's "hot" in the industry right now.
Wait, what? A review is someone's opinion. Why the hell would a critic take into account what the masses will think if he/she thinks the game deserves a specific score. Not to mention that every single person likes and dislikes different things for different reasons. That was one of the dumbest suggestions I've ever heard. Wow.
I like open world superhero games, heck, INCREDIBLE HULK: ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION was one of my favorite games back in the day. Look Talltony, no one is saying that Infamous is bad, its just BLAH. Yes it got plenty of 9's and got lots of 8's and a couple 7's and even a 6. Apparently not everyone feels the same way about INFAMOUS that you do. From playing the demo, id give it an 8, no more no less. If u feel that its the end all be all of games then good for you.
diss a good game for stupid reasons, I have no respect for that. You cant judge this game based on the demo. Like I said in my other post, "Its so obvious this game is subjective to different game tastes." But I am saying play the game and not the demo.
OK First off, PSM3 is a great mag, also what most of you people cant understand is that not all big hyped games are good, thats why PSM3 are excellent with their reviews because they speak the truth whereas IGN and Game spot review the really hyped games high just for good ratings. Infamous in my opinion is Not a great game and i think 71 is a bit generous.
