Would you all be dissapointed if Gears 3 got less than a 9 metascore?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Would you all be dissapointed if Gears 3 got less than a 9 metascore?

I couldnt give a toss, but I do hope it scores highly as a fitting finale.

Most review website now are getting big money to give out good and bad reviews so their word does not mean much anymore. I say just rent the game and if you like it buy it.

Can you actually back that up with evidence? Or do you listen to what morons on the internet say because a game didn't get a review score exactly how they wanted it? 


Man it's kind of like what happened between Mansanto and Fox News.  I Know that this story is not related to gaming, but these gaming website have ads paid by these large companies promoting their games.  Do you really think that they want to bite the hand that's feeding them?  Of I can never be certain but in my opinion I am done with reviewers.

Doesnt matter.....

seriously reviewers give their opinion/thoughts about the game that they played its no better than your opinion the only difference is they get paid for doing it....

watch how these so called reviews complains how its "same old nothing new but its better than last game" then slap a 7/10 then when it comes to COD "HOLY SHIT SO INNOVATIVE!!" 10/10.....=.=



People only cared in 2007 when the PS3 had no game on metacritic above 9 while the other two had already plenty of them. Now the PS3 gained some +9 games...now they don't care anymore :).



 

92 after 29 review... so 90 is looking likely.

which in the current climate is a high score indeed compared to other recent shooters. Halo Reach 91, Black Ops 87, Killzone 3 84.

Not personally, but I would be surprised. While a few sites might mark it down for originality or lack of evolution I expect many sites, with today's review/scoring approach, to give it 9 out of 10 or perfect scores.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

If a Gears got a 7 you'd know there was something seriously wrong with it.

A little, but I still get the impression that solid gold franchises still get solid scores.  So far I've seen a lot of perfect scores for Gears 3 for example.  It might well deserve them, can't say yet, but while I'm happy to see more mid level titles get reviewed more sensibly I think a lot of core franchises still see sites afraid to be too harsh (or to obviously go the other way).

Anyway, I would be very surprised to see Gears 3 below 90% because everything I've seen suggests its as solid and polished as the previous two with just the right balance of more of the same with enough new tweaks.
