If there is one reviewer dumber than GameSpot, it's EDGE. They gave 8/10 to BioShock!!
And now they are giving 7/10 to Conan but 5 to Folklore and 4 to Eye!!???

Each has his/her own taste. I enjoyed Conan a lot and would also score it 7/10. Just because it's not as hyped as other games don't automatically make it bad.

It would be really boring if all reviewers scored every game the same way...

MK_Red4171d ago

Don't get me wrong. I love Conan and not just for it's blood and gore. It's a fun game and a 7.5 to 8 in my book but I'm talking about quality of each game in it's own genre. Eye of... is certainly a great card game as is Folklore in adventure genre and both of them are innovative. Conan is described by IGN is poor man's God of War and has no innovation or special element to seperate it from other hack and slash games aside from blood and gore which is more than enough for me ;) .

bioshock is 1 of the best games ive ever played but giving it a 8 is not to bad as the after u found out about the incredible story and gameplay it has hat it in bioshock it to long to play again and knowing the story spoils it when replying it for the next 15hrs but if its ur 1st time playing that game man the game is told ina way ive never seen before and looks brilliant character/the wrold/dialog/immmersivness is astonishing but reply value is very low 9/10 fo rme bioshock.

I agree. The Conan demo played pretty nice. A typical hack-n-slash (which I like - I still like Dark Kingdom, BTW - maybe because I got it for $16 last week :), but the last Folklore demo is so above Conan, the in game cut scenes in Conan are bad, really bad (why not use CGI if ingame can't handle it ? - I'll never get that). If they want to rate Conan 7.5, OK, but then Folklore should get at least an 8 (I also think Folklore has improved from the latest demo(japan release) to now). I would guess Eye of Judgment also (but I haven't play tested that yet - so I'd just guess what I've seen so far).

InMyOpinion4171d ago

Folklore looks good. I would like to know for what reason they gave it 5/10.

Gamespot-equals-EGM4171d ago

EDGE has always been tough. These scores don't bother me much b/c EDGE is a pretty niche magazine over here in the states (EDGE being UK-based and all).

But Gamespot....that's a totally different story. GS is totally 'mainstream' (as in they get a lot of hits on their website, especially from American internet users).

TheSadTruth4170d ago (Edited 4170d ago )

uh oh guys ;(

Folklore got a 5 and Ratchet got only an 8!!!

MS must be paying off Edge magazine!!!

too bad no PS3 fans will figure out how to reply to this post ;(

Prismo_Fillusion4171d ago

lol at MySims and Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland
being rated better than Eye of Judgement and Folklore

somehow I doubt that those are the better 2 games of the four...

and I'm saying this as a Wii owner.
