I wish gamers didn't give Metacritic so much attention as to predict the scores. How many times do we have to learn that review scores =/= personal enjoyment of a game?

Other than long loading times, the more I see it/play it, the more I like it. Graphics are decent, nothing spectacular but serviceable, controls are very fluid and responsive, the animations don't bother me as much as I anticipated.

We here at NeoGAF* are actually smart enough to not read too much into reviews and scores especially. That's why we do not bother to post metacritic predicitions and such silly things.

The review scores wouldn't bother me that much as I never listen to them anyway, but the consistent reports of the game being a technical mess has put me off. Hope they fix it soon.

Poor Xbox, yet to find a truly great exclusive this gen besides Halo + Forza.

Gears 4, you're our only hope!

I wouldn't personally go so far as a mess but even when I wasn't experiencing them the gameplay never came together cohesively. It always felt like the shooter was ramming up against the platforming issues, and the platforming issues smashed into the shooter issues. And the open world stuff...well ya. Not very open

Nice and divisive. I kind of like seeing games that aren't just universally praised or panned honestly.

One of my favourites from last gen was Lost Planet 2, and that game certainly received a mixed reception.

Sunset overdrive and Ori are great exclusives and underrated

Gears 4 will be as big of a flop as Quantum Break, i guarantee it
