Didn't this game have like 30 months of dev time? What did we expect?
did you miss the word "remaster"?
...Metacritic lists 559 XBOX One games... the average score is... The fist quartile of those games ends at... or in other words: only 25% of XBOX One games score lower than...
You know a review thread is going well when people are trying to redefine a centuries-old statistical concept.
Solid 7s and 8s and then a 3/10 coming from nowhere...
Wow reviews are all over the place.
Honestly, those reviews are allover the place: some praising controls, others saying its cumbersome...
This is the oddest batch of reviews ive ever had to deal with. Namely because most of the negatives listed are things I actually would enjoy...
I don't know about other people, but to me, the game was one of a small handful which actually looked interesting to me aesthetically and gameplay-wise across all games revealed at both recent E3s...
Most games that get reviews from the media are 'good' in the sense that they're enjoyable by their target audience. There's plenty of 60s-70s that are totally fine as long as the person purchasing is informed about the game and its potential flaws and how they align with his taste. This game is probably one of them. When a game gets excellent review scores is because: it's a game that will be enjoyed by most players, regardless of their preferences [or] it's a game that is extremely good at what it does, even if its appeal is still limited to the niche that would play it anyway.
Jim Sterling gave it a 7/10 and I usually find his reviews spot-on. I think I will enjoy this game.
Jim Sterling 7/10, nice. Means I should like it decently.
The Sterling review does make me want to give it a shot.
Meh - based on Gerstmann's impressions I'll hang onto my pre-order...
I think from the streams that I saw that I will enjoy the game but I can definitely see why others wouldn't.
I'll still take the chance on it. I typically go against the grain with my game tastes anyways.
Very disappointing, but then again my tastes rarely align with metacritic. The written content of the reviews seem to describe a fun game (in my eyes), so I`m hoping I enjoy the game.
Most folks in this thread have focused solely on the mean score for Recore, and the relative position of its mean score within the distribution of mean scores of all reviewed games (“Recore's mean score puts it in the bottom X% of all games”. This puts exclusive emphasis on 'measures of center' (mean and median) for the purposes of characterizing the score distribution of an individual game. Other folks in this thread are effectively suggesting that there should (also) be an attempt to use 'measures of spread' (range and standard deviation) to characterize the score distribution of a game.
That Final Fantasy VII port that came out on PC/PS4 last year would probably count as a PS1 remaster.
Where are his impressions read? Just his twitter post
What is the loop of the game. What are you doing throughout the game? Just shooting Robots and doing the dungeons? Not trying to sound pessimistic, truly curious after watching the GB stream.
It kinda looks like a Metroid/Zelda game with a Diablo style loop. Although im not a big fan of how the loot system is stat based only and doesnt change your armor. Atleast it does change the pets. Not sold on it just yet but I might just get it anyway.
When can downloading begin on PC and it doesnt go live till 12 pm (PST) right?
Edit: Also any word on length?
