The city is now his only limit
Still no score below 8.5 :)
Game of the Year!
With the surprisingly high scores for Batman Arkham City and the expected high scores of Uncharted, I think Battlefield 3 is the game that suffers most. Many who were on the fence wondering if the should buy Arkham City just got their answer.
BF3 is for online, B:AC is for single player, U3 is also for single player usually but this time it should have a great MP as well. so the 3 games are attracting different kinds of crowds.
Sitting at: 95 on Xbox with 26 reviews 98 on PS3 with 10 reviews I don't like quoting meta, but I do have to say it is very impressive that this game is scoring so well, one of the highest multiplats this gen and I think it'll adverage around 94 over all, and maybe higher with other sites who don't support meta. I loved Arkham Asylum and can't wait to play this GOTY contender day one.
Who gave it 8.5? This game deserves 9 at least!
Destructoid I believe lol
they gave AA an 8 btw
That says it all huh... I never agree with Destructoids reviews.
A 9 from Edge. That's like a 13/10.
I was going to say the same thing. :) When you get a 9 from EDGE that's like a perfect score. Have they ever given a game a 10?
Halo 3 Little Big Planet http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Thanks. Amazing only two 10's. I always ignore review scores from EDGE or add at least 1 to them.
They've given out a few more than two but it's still rare: Super Mario Galaxy The Orange Box Half Life 2?
Edge can be harsh but at least they are consistently harsh so when they score high you know we have a class game on our hands.
Yeah, that's the way I look at it as well. But regardless, the amount of great scores this game is getting makes it unmissable. What a fantastic holiday season this is turning out to be. Now all I need is Dante's Inferno 2 to be announced for Mid 2012 and my life will be complete
Edge also over-rate games, they are not "harsh", just have awkward taste in games that i don't understand most of the time.
Agreed newmonday, Halo 1 deserved a 10/10 sure but Halo 3 did not, not by a long shot. Edge have given thirteen ten's in their entire history. Super Mario 64 N64 Gran Turismo ps1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time N64 Halo: Combat Evolved xbox Half-Life 2 pc Halo 3 360 The Orange Box pc/ps3/360 Super Mario Galaxy wii Grand Theft Auto IV ps3/360 LittleBigPlanet ps3 Bayonetta ps3/360 Super Mario Galaxy 2 wii Rock Band 3 ps3/360 I really don't agree with most of those but what ever...
wait timeout....they gave bayonetta a 10?
Reviews are finally out for Marvel's Spider-Man 2, and the game's Metacritic review score means Marvel still hasn't toppled DC.
The Arkham games are largely excellent, a shame they are being followed up by that god awful looking suicide squad game.
All 4 Arkham games are just amazing... With the Gotham Knights turning out sub par, hope the Suicide Squad fails as well... So that both Rocksteady and WB Montreal goes back to creating good single player DC games ... A batman beyond game maybe?
Having the game fail would make it harder for them to get funding for their next game, please don't wish this on them. They already delayed the game a whole year after backlash, so we still have to wait and see how it will turn out.
I think asylum and origins were great. City was good. Knight was horrible.
You can't expect a game to match 96-94 meta apple for apple. Different era and different gen. No need to diminish either game's achievement. Arkham City and Spiderman 2 are both amazing sequels that improved upon their already incredible first parts.
To back that up, there are major websites that adjusted their review scales. IGN used to have a 100 point system; now it's a 10 point system. I remember GameSpot back in 2004 was razed for giving Halo 2 a 9.4 when IGN gave it like a 9.7 or 9.8
Arkham Asylum was great, but when City came out... wow what a total overhaul that was. Nothing has had that type of night/day difference in scope and scale since. SM2 is looking to be a great game in itself. Definitely an upgrade over the previous entries. Just from the opening battle with sandman, it gives me god of war 2 vibes with how that one opened with the battle with colossus of rhodes. That is still one of my favorite sequels of all time.
Thanks for the spoiler how the game starts loser...
Zeke... you've had plenty of time to play god of war 2.
