what a sh!tty list.
most of those games apparently suck.

i guess we have all been waiting for november and's like the great games start in november and keep coming until spring. f*ck i'm going to be broke.

Panthers4065d ago

LOL at those scores too. Folklore got a 8 and a 5.5. They are all over the place with those scores.

Ratchet did well, as well as Halo. Seems the Halo score is a bit late.

The Wood4065d ago

is that game honestly a 10. Thats like two perfect scores. Im sure gears was better in almost every way except MAYBE multiplayer.

joydestroy4065d ago

yeah, i'd play the hell out of Gears versus Halo 3
i hope UT3 and CoD4 change the way a lot of people feel about Halo 3.

Prismo_Fillusion4065d ago

If that's true, you could say that halo is better in almost every way except MAYBE singleplayer.

But I agree, Halo is not perfect - therefore it shouldn't get any 10s. That's just common sense!

ruibing4065d ago

I would vote Orange Box should have gotten that kind of score only. It has five (I think, maybe more) AA to AAA games for a cheap launch price. Only thing better is if they included everything single game in the HL franchise in, but who knows, that may be in the Yellow or Red Box.

VirusE4065d ago

I wouldn’t give the orange box 10s but that is simply because I paid for hl2 and hl2 episode 1 and I have played them both to death so it isn’t much of a deal for me (and ep1 kinda sucked). TF isn’t my bag of chips and I feel that halo 3 and what I have played of the UT3 demo provide a much better online experience. I would basically be paying 60 bucks for ep 2 and portal which is a horrible deal.

I also think that halo is deserving of the score it recieved. Then again i am really good at halo so i do have a bit of a bias.

mesh14065d ago

Ratchet and clank deserves lower marks as it the same game as all the other rachet games with new graphics.halo 3 is better than anything ps3 will have untill early 2009

Panthers4065d ago

Mesh, you havent played R&C and your argument is dumb. I love Halo 3, but just as you say R&C is the same as before, well so is Halo 3.

Also, 2008 has games like MGS4, FF13, Killzone 2, Socom (the one game I am waiting for, and best online multiplayer of any game)

But I dont know why I waste my breath. Your just another fanboy who is narrow minded.

What's up with the 4 and the 4.5 for Katamari? WTF? I love those games.

guitarfanboy4065d ago (Edited 4065d ago )

Oh really... That's cool. It's almost like they rate games in terms of what they think the gamer populous will think*. These people are dumb. By the way, if you like hard tacos, hit agree. If you like soft tacos, hit disagree. If you like both, and I can't decide which side the populous is gonna take... Both types of tacos are straight 7's... no 8's... no 7.5, 10, 5.0, for tacos in general.


Bazookajoe_834065d ago

They are going mainstream..

PS360WII4065d ago

"It's almost like they rate games in terms of what they think the gamer populous will think"

Agreed. They must have meetings for this. 'Well we know Halo is popular so that'll get 10's, Conan we know is just a hack and slash so probably mid levels, R&C we know people want this so it'll get a high score, and Jericho is just a fps....'

Blech this is why I just buy the game if I'm kind of intrested in them and I never go by reviews.

DeckUKold4065d ago (Edited 4065d ago )

i played the demo to jericho honestly it should be an 8 IDK maybe they're tired of fps(like me) but that don't explain orange box and folklore thats just plain stupid these critics is almost as bad as movie critics

Bazookajoe_834065d ago

Jericho should be about average, Bladestorm a little higher, Folkore much higher (not AAA but pretty high), Halo 3 should be all 9.5, Ace combat should get high for grafic but the rest of the game sucks, Can´t say so much on Orange box (havent played it, but it seems a little high with 2 tens)

Just seems like they rushed a little, but i don´t read Egm so i don´t know how they usally score.
