Absolute Games, Review of Mass Effect 2.
lol did they just really compare this game to Heavy Rain? wuuuut? EDIT: Ok do people just disagree now for the heck of it lol? They clearly just compared it to Heavy Rain at the bottom of the review...ya know, if you CLICK the red full review link.... So if they didn't do that then please disagree fairies, tell me what they did do.
I expected a game like this to score this low as it's not a good game at all. They seem to focus too much on TPS and boring+repetitive dialogue. This seems to be a bad year for RPGs (on consoles at least). Maybe later this year we'll be able to play a RPG above mediocrity.
Yeah, I don't see why you'd compare ME2 to Heavy Rain. Meh, you know the majority of the time you won't get a logical answer in return for a disagree.
Obviously for hits. Don't even click the link.
Wtf Ninji. You're gonna judge a game because it steps outside its genre a little or else focuses on one aspect of its genre? Yeah, most people know that this game is a shooter RPG. For all its minor flaws, the game is still outstanding. It definitely doesn't deserve a 74/100. It deserves at least an 8.5.
thats funny. Id expect you to agree with an off base review as im guessing your taste in games is pretty bad.
Ninji opinion = biased crap not even worth reading.
IIRC, they gave Uncharted 2 a score below 9 too.
You guys are exactly what is wrong with game reviews. Don't you guys get tired of games getting 9s and 10s all the time. Critics are called critics for a reason. They are suppose to be critical about the game. Giving a 9 or 10 to a developer just lets them know that they don't have to try as hard next time. And by the way Uncharted 2 is still better.
theese guys gave kz2 a 7 too, dont worry too much about their review, its a lot like edge.
When reviews are this far outside of the general consensus you have to wonder if they are just trying to get attention. Nevertheless, it is his opinion, so whatever. Personally, I feel Mass Effect 2 is the best game released this generation.
lol hit seeking if the review is this late, lame.
No way in hell is ME2 a 7.4. It is at worst a 8.5, and I would class it as a 9.4. Obvious cry for hits.
Some kind of Russian EDGE. Also, that site has as much hits as n4g.com, because it`s one of the most popular Russian Gaming sites. http://www.alexa.com/sitein... Also, i don`t see this review on metacritic for x360 version, only for PC. Now talk about some MetaCritic BIAS.))
Absolute Games = EPIC FAIL
people have different opinions, i also think ME2 dose not deserve higher than 9, but thats my opinion, doesn't make the game worst. anyways this site is featured on Metacritic.
^ different opinions my a$$ Mass Effect 2 is a masterpiece!
^ lol oh what a contradiction. Good game yes, masterpiece, no.
i think this was the review site that knocked UC2's meta average down from 97 to 96
You`ve never heard the term bogus? Wow, that`s pretty bogus man.
Bogus - noun - to not believe it; fake; sometimes stupid, retarded, and/or dumb. Example: PS3 Man: I can't believe that Mass Effect 1/2 aren't on the PS3 yet. That's bogus. EA: Don't worry - you will see it this Holiday 2010.
Of course I figured this would happen since it's more of a TPS than a RPG.
not have game perfect.. mass effect is no excession ;)
I may not own a 360 or the game in particular but I can tell when a review site simply wants to get hits. Heck, if I defended Uncharted 2 from such a fiasco back then this should be no exception. -Go Figure!
still it's a above average score.
So you're saying MS should blacklist them?
Even though MS can be dirty I don't think they will stoop to that level of dirtyness.
I don't own a 360. Just a ps3 but after beating both at my friends house, this is seriously one of the best if not the best games of this generation. One of the few games where i'm dying to play the next one for the story.
Its someones opinion, don't get upset.
Just beat the game last night. It's great but the story greatly disappointed me. Side-quests are great, though.
story is not as catchy as first mass effect 1. But, everything else has improved. The way i look at it, it doesn't have to be FPS, TPS, RPG whatever the heck you wanna call as long as you have fun. It's solid 9 in my book, no less no more.
Exactly mate, solid 9. Metacritic 96 is insane or way too high.
You PS3 fanboys are so funny. It really bothers you that Mass Effect 2 has received such good reviews, doesn't it. Well, Mass Effect 2 deserves every high score it has got, in my opinion. Uncharted 2 was also very good and I'm not going to be petty like you guys and claim it is overhyped.
lol, I am more PC fanboy :D
@ starchild you know it is possible that a 360 fan ( like myself ) may play the game and actually think it is nothing more then a 9. I have played it, finished it and i am on my second play through, I would not give it anything more then a 9. I still have a lot of issues with the game, just my opinion - and they are not just technical issues - story, characters etc.
You know this isn't an article about MAG or White Knight Chronicles right?
it's about mass effect 2. Can you read?
Boom b!tches. MOOEY'S BACK. One month ban can't hold me back. Let's face the fact, kiddos: Mass Effect trilogy will grace the PS3. Bots can play the Bioshock card all they like, but you see how that ended up. Speaking of, how is that Bioshock 2 exclusive for ya, bots?
why did you get ban?
LMAO, kiss the 96 GOODBYE. Absolute Games IS on metacritic. If my math is correct, Mass Effect 2 needed an 80 or below to drop them to 95.4. SAY GOODBYE BOTS. Uncharted 2 > Mass Reject 2.
Oh no! A 95 on MetaCritic! That would be the end for Mass Effect 2! Cause everyone knows 96 means it's an incredible game, but 95 means it's a steaming pile of ****. That 1 point makes all the difference.
Last I checked 96 > 95, therefore by fanboy logic which is all logic, Uncharted 2 > Mass Effect 2. 'Nuff said. Now move along, kiddie.
96, why does it matter? Uncharted 2 says hi, Just saying.
I bet it won't even be included on MetaCritic. Watch...
LMAO, it isn't!
I'm guessing they want ME2 up there with Uncharted 2 so they're not putting up this review. Absolute Games are on MC as well, they gave Uncharted 2 a 8.9 or something.
No, it's because at the bottom of the review, it says "Review relevant to PC". There is no mention of the 360. So the review was only added to the PC version on MetaCritic. You'll notice with any multiplatform game, they'll only review the PC version. There was no PC version of Uncharted 2, so they had to review the PS3 version.
Like i said, Mass Effect 2 is far over hype for the 360 and all those 360 fanboys see this as a 360 exclusive and brag about how this game will kill all PS3 exclusive and all of this nonsense. I don't know what so great abut this game? It's LINEAR boys so it's not RPG game and it get bored if play already 20 hours. RPG is about the free world and explore, and limit world access with no single exploration feeling in this game. It's a good game but far from excellent.
I don't remember ever reading comments from 360 owners about how ME will kill anything on PS3. Quit making stuff up. "RPG is about the free world and explore" The rpgs on PS3 are linear, they're mostly jRPGs which have no exploration other than opening chests and running around on the world screen. BTW your grammar is horrible.
It's better than the PS3, in which most of its games are overhyped. Uncharted 1 and 2 being the few exceptions.
Oblivion, Fallout 3, and borderlands are all rpgs on the PS3. They seem pretty open world to me.
The exclusives are pretty linear. I should play Borderlands, it's collecting dust on my shelf. I really want to play Fallout 3 on PS3 to get the trophies but I completed it when I owned a 360 :(
They are at the top of the hits list in russian internet. They have tons of money from their adds. And yes, this particular game reviewer, Nomad, is a very strict guy, very famous here in Russia. To tell the truth, his review is very similar to my experience from ME2 ^_^
LOL the person who wrote this must still be pissed about IGN saying this was better than UC2. Anyway LOL at the score I'm sure the PS3 horde will jump on it like a god and ignore the 100 other sites that gave it good reviews.
This person who reviewed ME2, also reviewed KZ2 and gave it 7/10 delusional 360 fanboys. opinions are opinions.
Poor droids need hope so they cling to the one or two sites that are ran by them.
Butthurt? Mwaaaaaahhhhhh 8...(
Well, Uncharted 2 has 104 reviews. I'm sure this won't be Mass Effect 2's last review. Who knows, it could go back up to 96. And if one review from an obscure website that gives a game a bad review just to get hits makes one game worse than another, then I'll be damned.
And yet Heavy Rain gets a 8/10 and bots say it floped?? LMFAO!~~!!! BOTS 7 IS LOWER THAN 8 THIS IS GAME IS DOG SH!T
Ha ha.. you're funny. Droids were never equipped with brains by their maker, Sony, so it isn't surprising that they are incapable of rational thought. That's why you are known as "delusional droids".
Because X-tards are better? lmfao, X-tards and their delusions of grandeur and their lack of self-awareness. What a moron.
PS3 fanboys are the most extreme and the most irrational. They are a scourge on gaming. *I am not talking about regular PS3 fans. I am talking about the PS3 extremist like the moron above me.
ME2 is one of the best game i ever played and i hope bioware will continue to make games like this.
Logged over 40 hours (Hardcore/Paragon/Infiltrator) . And I can easily say that ME2 is one of the best games I have ever played.
its not about ps3 fanboys or xbox360 fanboys....okay the gave killzone 2 also a 7 but...killzone also deserved more..i mean wtf? mass effect 2 gets 7/10?are you kidding me....what a bad review
