Saw (Review) at Pixel Perfect Gaming

PPG wrote in their review "The most anticipated horror movie of the past couple of years finally makes its debut as a video game. If you haven't guessed by now, I am talking about Saw - one of the most violent horror movies in recent memory, and you wouldn't think a game carrying its namesake would live up to the reputation.

It's true; I had my doubts about Saw, but it has to be one of the best movie-to-game translations to come along in a long time, and it works, and it works really well. I will start out by saying this: you don't have to be a fan of the movies to understand what's going on around you. You start the game with one of those trademark traps on your head, known throughout the Saw movies as the inverted bear trap."

Ok, first off, I will guiltily admit that this game (at least the concept) intrigued me and it wouldn't suprise me if it went on to be a rent-worthy game. But....a 10/10? You have got to be kidding me. I've never played the game and really haven't seen much on it, but it just doesn't strike me that something like this should get a perfect score. I just don't see it.

Saw videogame: perfect score lol. It really makes me laugh and wonder where does this site go from here? What score can it give UC2 or Forza3 when they come out this year? I mean when you've set the highest threshold with the Saw videogame, that's just sad for later reviews.

Allow me to respond here. First of all, you mention that you haven't played the game, so honestly, your criticism is unfounded. You're basing your response on what then? That something besides Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, ,etc., received a score that other sites refuse to give because their noses are buried in the ass of certain advertisers?

I’ve read just about every review on Pixel Perfect Gaming and they gave KOFXII a 3 out of 10 when other sites like scored it high. Now that is a site headed in the wrong direction, pal. I'd agree with you if every review on Pixel Perfect received a perfect score, but they didn't.

I applaud their review of Saw. If you're a fan of Saw, the game does a superb job of capturing the feel of the movie. Period. It plays just as good as any Silent Hill game. Period. Just because someone at IGN did a poor job of reviewing the game doesn’t mean their score, or their opinion, is actual fact. IGN slaughtered Raiden IV in their review and that, too, was another kick-ass title. See my point? I'm glad someone is finally coming along and reviewing these games the right damn way.

Now what is this about Forza 3? Don't tell me you're one of those people who think that nothing can be better than GT. Please, scoot back to IGN where you belong.

Saw definitly looks rent worthy, given the higher than expected reviews from bigger game sites. So I'll be giving the game a rent, and from this review it seems if you are big fan of the series you'll love the game.

What the hell are you talking about? Somebody got their panties in a twist real quick didn't they. First, I simply said that I just don't see this game being a perfect score game. No I haven't played it, that doesn't make my opinion entirely unfounded though. I have seen videos and all that. All I was saying it that the game actually looked interesting to me and looked like something I might be willing to rent to give it a play, however I just didn't see it as being a perfect score game. That's it. That's all I said. Then you start whining about whatever. And IGN? Who brought that up. I never mentioned anything about "oh this site sucks because they gave it a perfect score when real sites like IGN gave it a poor review". Those words never came out of my mouth or nothing to that extent. I just thought it a lil humorous that THIS game turns out to be one that defines their pinnacle for gaming. I wasn't ever dogging this game, in fact I said the game actually interests me and I might get around to playing it sometime. All I said was that my OPINION was that this game doesn't seem to fit well as a "pinnacle of gaming" score.

What's even funnier though, is how much you got your feelings hurt by what I said. What's even funnier than that is that you signed up to N4G just so you could comment and whine about what I said. And to do that you go on to "justify" this score by saying that it's an opinion (while criticizing some site like IGN for their opinion) and thereby saying that my opinion is obviously worthless because it doesn't fall in line with this site's opinion. Furthermore, to make it even more ignorant on your part, you make the comment about trying to pass opinion as fact and falling in line with these big sites' mentalities while you're trying to discredit my opinion because it doesn't fall in line with, evidently, your favorite site here. And then you further try to pass off this site's opinion as fact (contradicting yourself once again) with the statement "I'm glad someone is finally coming along and reviewing these games the right damn way". The right way? So basically all you're saying is any other site that gave any game you like a low score or a score different than this Pixel Perfect then they're wrong? lol Way to make yourself look like an ass there buddy. It's all opinion jackass, and that's all my comment was. Now get off your soapbox and quit whining because my OPINION is different than Pixel Perfect's OPINION.

By the way, Metal Gear? I never got into so I think that's overrated a bit because it doesn't appeal to me so much, thus would never be on a "perfect score" level in my book. Gran Turismo is awesome (though 4 wasn't up there 3, but still fun nonetheless). Final Fantasy used to be my favorite franchise, though SE has gone downhill a bit in recent years, so not sure this one will be all that great (though I will be trying it). And Resident Evil sucked (among other things, the controls were crap).

"Now what is this about Forza 3? Don't tell me you're one of those people who think that nothing can be better than GT. Please, scoot back to IGN where you belong."
What the f*ck? Is your reading comprehension as pisspoor as your logic? Where the hell did I ever bring up GT in that first reply? And where the hell did I ever imply Forza 3 was a bad game or something. In fact, moron, if you read it I was actually giving Forza its due credit as I was saying that Forza (along with Uncharted 2) are games that deserve universal praise and critical acclaim much more so than something like Saw. I was simply asking, if Saw is a 10, then what would much better games like Uncharted 2 and Forza 3 get on their scale (maybe 15 or something)?

Bottom line: quit f*cking whining. And when you try to present an argument, don't leave it so full of hypocrisy with your whole "opinion is just opinion, not fact......but anybody that doesn't agree with Pixel Perfect's score is obviously some fanboy/head up their ass whore to the media outlet" 'logic'. Makes you look stupid. And a bit butthurt too....actually come to think of it: the whole you being butthurt and crying thing, then signing up just to whine about my OPINION and then leave again leads me to believe you're quite probably part of this Pixel Perfect site, and quite possibly even the one who wrote this review. Which makes you seem even more sad.

So once again, don't come in here whining and b!tching, trying to rip into me and being a d!ck just because I share my opinion (that this game definitely doesn't not appear to be the pinnacle of gaming in my book) and my opinion doesn't fall in line with your boyfriend's review here.

I called you out plain and simple. You find it funny that I signed up to comment about you or that I lurk here and felt compelled to post on your constant spouting? I'm not the one who just wrote a 6 paragraph response to justify his wrongs. My comments stand. I find it funny how you slam these guys without playing the game first. It 'doesn't' look like Saw deserves that score? Do you know how ridiculous that sounds?

I said IGN doesn't review games fairly, especially in the case of Raiden IV (read their review?). That review in particular doesn't constitute as opinion because it was riddled with bias, from start to finish. Saw falls under the same guidelines. Bias doesn't equal opinion or fact. Plain and simple. IGN is suspect #1 there. Always has been, always will be. I canceled my subscription there because of it.

I've had my say. Think what you want. The rest of your post is long-winded and unnecessary to a simple argument. As you were, back to scoring games without playing them.

2dgamer3384d ago

Yup. I work for PPG and you work for IGN. Nice to meet ya'. (Rolls eyes)

JL3384d ago (Edited 3384d ago )

Nevermind. I'm not even going to dignify it anymore.

Simply put, quit trying to pass your (and Pixel Perfect's) opinion as fact. And learn the difference between "bias" and "difference of opinion" (because there was no bias in that IGN review--of this or of the Raiden review either). Quit crying just because some people don't like certain games as much as you.

And don't be so ignorant as to presume that one can't acquire a basic ballpark opinion on a game merely through gameplay videos and without actually playing the game.

But you're right. I'm wrong. You can return to the shadows now and return to stalking me (btw, that's kinda creepy) and I'll work on removing my head from ass since it's obviously up there so high that I can't even see that only your opinion is right and any conflicting opinion is simply bias. (Rolls eyes)

I understand your points but PPG makes sure that fans of the genre are reviewing the titles so yes, the score may be higher than what it would have received had a person that didn't care for the genre in question been reviewing it.
