Best game this generation? Critics sure think so, can't wait till next Friday.
The scores are insane, despite 3-4 sites giving this game between 75-85; it is still 3rd highest rated game right now behind Uncharted 2 & GTA 4.
The amount of 100's this game is getting is insane, it's on pace to have the most perfect scores in current gen's history.
GTA 4 (48/86) 56% [definitely most overrated game in history, should have gotten around 94 overall score. San Andreas got 95 )
Uncharted 2 (39/105) 37%
Uncharted 3 (24/97) 25%
Red Dead Redemption (20/73) 27%
BioShock (34/88) 39%
BioShock Infinite (10/33) 30%
Arkham City (16/42) 38%
Mass Effect 2 (30/98) 31%
Skyrim (32/89) 36%
Guns of the Patriots (31/82) 38%
Gears of War (19/88) 22%
Halo 3 (20/86) 23%
The Last Of Us (30/61) 49%
Only 6 other current gen games has received 30 or more perfect scores, all of them had over 80 votes.
Kinda surprised Mass Effect 2 had that many perfect scores in comparison to the original.
Wait I guess it being initially a 360 exclusive effected that? I mean I like both games pretty equally and for a long time I thought 2 was my fav. but then I've replayed the games so much I can't decide really which is the better one.
OMG they score 360 .1 or .2 higher than Metacritic average out of 10, and PS3 games .1 or .2 lower. It's a conspiracy!
It's not a bias, it's just trolling, and it's heavier toward big Nintendo releases but they do it often. There review scores and the review contents also have a bad habit of not matching each other. Just because it's recent the Luigi Mansion stands out to me, their main criticism was the first boss was harder than the 2nd or 3rd boss and they had trouble with it. (I agree it was harder but personally i had no problems.) For that they took a game almost everyone gave a 9 and gave it a 7. Also the Skyward Sword where the guy complains about the controls (valid IMO) but gave an example of how the controls work which was really really wrong.
I just started playing Heavy Rain recently and like it a lot. It's a nice change of pace from all the action games out there.
I finished Heavy Rain twice and I'm still not sure if I liked it. There are things about it I love, and other things that I found to be some of the most frustrating things I've ever done in a video game.
