Hmmm... Gameklut is always strict, so I guess this isn't a bad score :)

"Its depth can be terribly intimidating" - LOL!

Dante1123741d ago

True, they always come down hard on everyone, whether it's a exclusive on the PS3 (LBP2) or Xbox360 (Halo Reach). Their opinion so I can respect that.

More likely GameSluts, now sht d hll up, this game is a solid read...?

Eyeco3741d ago

jesus christ i hate this site weren't they black listed ?

TKCMuzzer3741d ago

Wow, terribly intimidating, how on earth did those millions of levels get created. Oh yeah, patience and lets face it, not everyone's got COD mentality when it comes to gaming.

Bathyj3741d ago

WAH ! I'm scared of LBP.

"For designers, it is a goldmine."
I'm not about to click on their crappy site but I can see where they're going already.

For the record, I havent created a single thing yet or played any user created level. Even with the levels out of the box, this game is a blast and show genius.

You saying that Gameklut is strict, to me is an excuss for them. Its ok to have standards but I hear this site give awesome games low scores. This site NEEDS to show what they consider a rated 10 game so when I look at this site I can see where they are coming from with scores. They gave Halo Reach a 6? WHAT?.....are u serious? I might not be a Halo fan but that game does not deserve a 6. Its sites like this who mess it up for people. Why? Some people buy games based on reviews and giving low scores because you want to give the perception they have standards, will deter some people from buying that game. Yes I know it their opinion but when you call it a review it needs to be credible.

They gave Reach a 7 with no zine selection. (Yes there's a redactor special award accorded to special games.)
They said about Reach that the technology of the game looked outdated when they compared it to standards like Uncharted, God of war and the game in intself was nothing phenomenal on this console generation.

In fact they gave a 6 to ODST, they said the game was supposed to raise the graphics of halo 3 but in fact it was nothing great about it.

Their rating :
9 = excellent game allmost perfect
8 = Very good
7 = good
6 = honest game

They never gave a 10, as far as i know the webzine, but maybe i'm wrong.

And for the fanboys who will say that they are anti xbox webzine they also gave a 7 (with no selection) to GT5.
And the 3/4 of the redactors are playing on 360.

And 7 at Black Ops... this isnt surprising... well Black Ops deserved a 5 but Reach 7 is low... 9 at least just like this one...

Headquarters113741d ago

lol Reach deserves a 7.5 at best. Same old Halo, with a very boring campaign.

TKCMuzzer3741d ago

Reach? 9?, no. Every Halo title is over marked because of the sentimentality value, most reviewers want it to be good so are generous even when it's average, "cough, Halo3"

BigMassacre3741d ago

I remember a time when a 7 was good. Those were the days.

Figboy3741d ago

@BigMassacre: you remember those days too? I thought I was the only one...

kingjoker343741d ago

problem with that is though that there is more tripple A games, so why spend $60 on a 7 or 8 out of 10 game when u can spend it on a 9 or 10 game? not everybody has money to buy games willy nilly. the games these days NEED to get a 9 or a 10. yeah 7/8 is a good score, but it just does not cut it with todays competition.

Figboy3740d ago

Enjoyment and value are subjective, though. A reviewer can never speak for an entire gaming population, so that number score he/she slaps at the end of his review is worthless to anyone but that reviewer.

For example, one of my favorite games of last generation is a Free Radical game called Second Sight. I LOVE that game. It scored in the 7's, mostly because Psi-Ops, in all it's generic glory, had more visceral gun play, but severely lacked in story and acting. I own both Psi-Ops and Second Sight. Even though Psi-Ops was the critic darling, Second Sight was the better game for ME.

I couldn't care less if a site like IGN, or Gamespot, or 1up gave my anticipated games 9/10 or 10/10 scores. All that matters to me, as the end user, is that I enjoy the games I buy. I don't need a review to decide how to spend my money.

Yes, $60 is a LOT of money to spend on a game, but I'm very careful in that I only purchase games I have an interest in. Not games that the gaming media thinks I should buy. If I did that, I'd own the Call of Duty franchise and GTAIV, since, according to the critics, those are 9/10, 10/10 games.

My point is simply that value is subjective, and a review score doesn't speak for any of us as unique individuals with very different tastes in games.

TardcoreGamer3741d ago

I wonder what games they think are worthy of 8's 9's and dare I say 10's?

SpitFireAce853741d ago

Uncharted 2 got 9,GTA4 got a 9,StarCraft2 a 9..
No 10s i checked for a while

disturbing_flame3741d ago

They never accorded a 10.
9 = God of war 3, Uncharted 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Bioshock...
8 = Gears of War 2, Killzone 2, Demon's Soul, Xenoblade

darksied3741d ago

This is typical though; don't smaller review sites tend to give popular games lower scores after the big ones do their reviews. I guess it's a way of getting hits for having "this big controversy" and such.
