PS3Vault Review: The Undergarden

The UnderGarden is most certainly a strange game, and does its best to follow the example set by Flower. There is no real objective other than to move through the levels, pollinating what appears to be plants and flowers, you cant die, and there is always mellow music playing in the background. Does The UnderGarden succeed in being as stand out and artful as Flower? Hit the break for our full review.

That's pretty poor rating system in all honesty!

hellzsupernova4827d ago

oh fair enough. if they get accepted into metacritic its going to screw with there scores really badly lol

Tommykrem4827d ago

I think some reviewers don't want too much focus on the score, but on the review. Reviews are subjective, and when you sum up subjective opinions in numbers it's easy to see why some developers want their readers to just read the review before they go on a rant about the game... but yeah, the 4 point system sucks. I'd prefer if they had no rating system at all.

Played the demo and its was....boring. For me of course, it just wasn't my type of game is all.
