an 8 in eurogamer?? AAA confirmed

cmrbe3005d ago

is AAA to you folks. Whatever happend to Uncharted is a 8.9 so its a flop?.

The Wood3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

flip flopping. 'they' had to lower the twipple aey bar to compensate. Its a return to reality for some of them as 8.x was always a great score until dumb/honest terms were used in dumb/manipulative ways by dumb fanboys and the media. its funny watching the same people flip flopping.

Anyway i downloaded part 2 for free some im gunna finish that then ill look towards this

[email protected] disagrees...flip floppers. If you've been here long enough you'd know that games under 9 were considered flops a couple years.. It was asinine then its asinine now

NecrumSlavery3005d ago

Well Eurogamer is pro 360 right? So doesn;t that make Fable 3's score a bit high? Not trolling just asking.

-Alpha3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

Actually the logic is "If it's Eurogamer, add +2"

Which is why he said "AAA confirmed". People have always treated Eurogamer to a different scale because there is some code here that people agree to with adding "+2" to any Eurogamer score.

It was said with God of War's review earlier today.

Of course that rule is total bullocks, let's face it, people whine about the review sites only when they don't end up being what they want it to be. In that sense reviews are like drunken sailors and the gamers are like women who keep going back despite always having their expectations crushed.

I like Eurogamer, they review differently, don't always agrees with them, but who really agrees with everything a site says?

inveni03005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

I rarely agree with any reviews, but IGN tends to be the one I go by. Sometimes they're higher than I'd want them to be, and sometimes they're lower--in the end, it balances out. If it's PS3 exclusive, I consider their score of 8.5 or higher a must-try (in some cases...). If it's multiplat, I consider a 9.0 or higher a must-try. I don't have a 360, so I don't know if they're biased or not.

Eurogamer, on the other hand, is ALWAYS waaaaay off.

THE MAX SPEED 213004d ago

I like the hypocrisy of the Sony fanboys who were calling Halo Reach a flop because it scored a 8 in a few reviews. Just stfu already. Whenver a PS3 exclusive score a 8 it's ''AAA'' when its the other way around its not? get it together already.

gcolley3004d ago

the idiots and their scores. like a score means anything. how can you go by a score without finding out if the good and bad points are also what you consider good and bad or what annoys the reviewer will annoy you???

why am i even on this site, i am smarter than this

No Way3004d ago (Edited 3004d ago )

Lol, both sides play this nonsense.. flop this, flop that. Aaaa, AAA!
But, if you really wanna pay attention to someone with one bubble, then..

An 8 is a great score, no matter how you look at it. On both sides..
That said, I'm happy to see that score, as I'm eagerly waiting to get Fable 3.

NeoBasch3004d ago (Edited 3004d ago )

By this logic, if we were to add +2 to every Eurogamer score and neglect that AAA refers to budget not quality, look what happens to some of the back catalog:

AAA Confirmed???

MotorStorm, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Heavenly Sword, Siren: Blood Curse, inFamous, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

AAAA Confirmed???

Killzone 2, God of War III, Resistance 2, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Heavy Rain

As compared to for 360:

AAA Confirmed???

Crackdown, Perfect Dark Zero (yeah, I know), Lost Odyssey, Gears of War, Halo: ODST, and Mass Effect

AAAA Confirmed???

Gears of War 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Fable 2, Mass Effect 2, and Forza Motorsport 3

Will this finally get you all to play some of the older games that were, in fact, pretty good? An 8/10 is a great score. Hell, I'd even consider picking up a game that received a 7/10 if I'm really interested in it (Enslaved). The point is, there are many games out there that could just be your cup of tea. Don't let a score throw you off. It's just a number!

Besides, there are many sister sites to Eurogamer: Spain, Portugal, etc. Which one are we referring to? Also, I have a hard time take anybody else's opinion who equates Resistance 2 to be >>>>> than Resistance: FoM.

ReBurn3004d ago

I'm so confused. One day AAA refers to the game's production budget. The next day AAA refers to the game's review scores.

I wish people would make up their minds.

mikeslemonade3004d ago

Your retarded if you can't see Uncharted is AAA. You don't have to read reviews for games like those. For Fable 3, the game is on the fence.

BulletToothtony3004d ago (Edited 3004d ago )


actually.. not trolling here

it's actually:

PS3 exclusive: add +2 (2.5 if it's a shooter)

360 exclusive: add +1 (which still makes fable 3 a heluvagame)

Multiplat.. usually add a +1 as well..

i'm really not trying to sound biased here but they were the ones that gave halo3 a 10/10 so i don't think that they're totally reliable

Sony3603004d ago

You missed the point of that comment, and so did the 50 tards who agreed with you.

I don't know if a facepalm will do the trick this time, I think I'll attempt to crush this energy drink can on my eye-socket instead....


AAA mean development budget, now to the mods, can we put 'AAA' in the bad language filter so I never have to see some idiot use that as part of their playground food-fight again.

Lich1203004d ago

Thank you, Im really sick of that being used as a term to mean quality.

chazjamie3004d ago (Edited 3004d ago )

i am glad you got your bubble back

callahan093005d ago

Kind of disappointing score considering they gave Fable 2 a 10.

Fishy Fingers3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

They gave Fable 2 10/10? :/

gypsygib3005d ago

AAA really means A+, which is 90 and above. Fable is not AAA but an A(8) is still a good score and fans of the games or genre wouldn't be disappointed.

kaveti66163004d ago

AAA has nothing to do with the score of a game. Stop spreading ignorance.

It has to do with budget. That's it.

Optical_Matrix3004d ago (Edited 3004d ago )

Triple is a PR term you noob. Review scores have nothing to do with a game being AAA or not. AAA is decided by hype, marketing strength/budget and the amount of money poured into the development of the title.

vhero3004d ago

Eurogamer is pro 360 and always have been they always add points for it being a 360 game.

Call_me_Ishmael3004d ago

what if its a 9 or 10 do you +2?

Sony3603004d ago


It's like the gamespot rule. Add 1 to the score out of 10 and you get how good it really is.

Gears_of_War_33005d ago

God of War Psp 7 those guys sucks... Really ?

Anyway 8 is good

Eamon3005d ago

Actually, 2 different reviewers gave 2 different scores.

acky13004d ago

7 out of 10 is still a good score.

Remember 5 means an average game, so anything above that could be worth a play through if you think you'd like it.

Game reviews aren't harsh enough nowadays, if its not a 9 or above people automatically think that it has failed so the scores have had to be pushed up for all games. Scoring systems really mean nothing nowadays...its just some guys opinion, hardly ever based on aspects of the game.
So if a reviewer is having a shit day, the score could be reflected in their mood. Games should be rated on a benchmark set of criteria to have any meaning.

All_4_One3005d ago

8? Not bad. Eurogamer is usually pretty tough on reviews, so I see this as a good sign for upcoming Fable 3 reviews. When does the embargo lift anyway?
