There's a bunch of great scores there for games like Heavy Rain, Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy XIII, NMH2, and Bioshock 2.

Myst4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

Yeah, glad that they received some great scores. Feel a bit bad for the people who made AvP for it to get a score down in the 5s. I'll probably still end up renting it though to see how it is, since it was taking for to long in the multiplayer demo for me to even get one match in :/.

Danteh4087d ago

the amount of top tier games in this magazine is win, great scores for heavy Rain, FFXIII and Bioshock, will buy them all.... and God of war III.
Then I'll get an old dog and start asking for money in front of my supermarket

goflyakite4087d ago

Don't forget about BFBC2.

PoSTedUP4087d ago

nothing on that list interest me except AVP hehe. i will prob be the only one here thats buying AVP and nothing else on that list.

avrage game developers need avrage people like me that get a lot of fun out of avrage games. lets face it though, AVP is something new and fresh compared to bfbc2 and bioshock2 (heavy rain is new but not for me)

looking foward to Metro2033 too, nothing new, i just like thoes type of games. looks good, like KZ2.

"Aliens vs. Predator (Multi) – 5.75"
"Dante’s Inferno (PS3/360) – 7 / 6.75"

Dang. I was looking forward to these two, but it's not looking very good for these titles.

DarkTower8054087d ago

Why does Heavy Rain have 2 scores (9.5/8.5)?

Myst4087d ago

If I recall Gameinformer sometimes has a secondary opinion piece. Whereas the first score is like first few glimpses of a game, then after progressing further into the game they place a different score which is dependent on the latter part of the game.

Not entirely sure, but I think it's something similar to that.

Jinxstar4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

Dark tower.

Game informer gives 1 main review then has a second opinion. A second small review(From a different person) for all "big" games. the 9.5 is the Main review and the one that will "count" as it were.

Usually DS games and stuff like that don't get second opinions. Some DL only games and other stuff. I think they try and have all "hyped"... games have second opinions though.

Infernostew4087d ago

GI does second opinion on some games (used to be just about all of them). The first score is the initial review score.

Christopher4087d ago

Yeah, BFBC2 may get some great scores, but I still don't think that will help it to compete with CODMW. I have that on pre-order, rethinking my pre-order of Dante's Inferno after having read a few reviews.

I didn't care if Heavy Rain got a 2 or 9 out of 10 after playing the demo its a definite must buy :-)

Pika-pie4087d ago

Just finished the demo for Heavy Rain and I wasnt pulled in by it. The graphics are really choppy and there is tearing in parts, I dont know how anyone can compare the graphics to Uncharted 2.

9.25 for FFXIII < 9.5 for Heavy Rain. That worries me!

HighDefinition4086d ago

Seriously, Heavy Rain looks amazing....get over it. Uncharted 2 looks amazing too. So, does GOWIII.

If you can`t understand how people compare it graphically, your blind.

PoSTedUP4086d ago

the multiplayer is awesome, PSN: StreetVeteran

deafwing4086d ago

... heavy rain is cool but I don't like the controls. I enjoyed FF XIII import so thats' fine ... going to have to wait to play the others.

I find the controls in Heavy Rain to be old school and cumbersome - they could have done it a different way. Nevertheless, the game is interesting though.

HowarthsNJ4086d ago

The old controllers didn't have that many imputs :-)

My wife played the demo today and immediately declared the controls ridiculous...

Then she really got into it and was upset when the demo ended :-)

9.5, and 9.75 are good scores

N4PS3G4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

Tropico 3- 8.75? :O

higher than bioshock 2? :O

beans4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

What the heck is Tropico 3?

Edit: nevermind...looking at footage now. I wonder why Bioshock 2 only got one review were Heavy rain and the rest got 2?

Christopher4087d ago

They typically try to have two for all, but rarely can do it. In the case of certain games they are able to get it and it's usually for high profile games that are hot topics in the community.

vhero4087d ago

Hahaha tropico 360 port got higher than Bioshock 2 says it all really. Especially considering how hard it is to control a strategy game on a console.

Homicide4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

Great score for FFXIII and Strange Journey!

Any word on what GI said about FFXIII and Strange Journey?

Valay4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

I don't have the issue in my hand, but from what I've heard, Game Informer did not review the 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII (yes, I'm being serious).

Michael-Jackson4087d ago

JP version? don't have their hands on the 360 version or it's noticeably different, so it deserves a separate review?

Michael-Jackson4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

Haha bots, don't get too butthurt. 9.5 for Heavy rain but 2nd opinion got a 8.5 which is still great. Better than Bioshock 2, 8.25??? I know that you can't compare but it just shows that Heavy rain is no flop.

Bodyboarder_VGamer4087d ago (Edited 4087d ago )

Bad Company 2 and Heavy Rain are the highest scores of the month! Even higher than FFXIII. L0L

chidori6664087d ago

bots got owned again..

heavy rain in meta the score is around 95..

the arguments of flops of exclusives is no longer valid ;)

caffman4086d ago

how about Mass Effect 2?

Arnon4086d ago

Lol I understand that Heavy Rain might actually be a great experience, but who on earth puts up Metacritic for a game with only 4 review scores...

"Four people like this game. Therefore, it is now the second highest rated PS3 exclusive that is tied with LBP."
