strange they complain about "more of the same" and gives it a 7.5 but they at the same time can give other games(that have had 3-4 releases in as many years) that is just "more of the same" 10.0 or 9.8 etc etc

You're misguided. Looks like you're just complaining to complain because everybody is doing it. What you said is not true at all.

What are you talking now? you're not making sense any more

He has a valid point, a lot of games have had a ton of sequels in a much shorter time with A LOT less changes getting very high scores. Are youseriously trying to deny it?

You can leave now and take you're BS/lies elsewhere tyvm

Please stop with the overreaction. I'm not BS-ing or lying, check Gamespot if you want. Point me at the yearly rehashes that get 10's and 9.8's on GS...
It just looks like he doesn't visit gamespot very often, because then he'd know they don't rate games on a 100 points scale.

Not a 9.8, but look  http://www.gamespot.com/gears-of-war-3/reviews/6334586/gears-of-war-3-review 

also

http://www.gamespot.com/gears-of-war-2 9

COD and its rehashes got 8.5-9s 

If the reviewer actually knew how to use the motion controls, this game would of gotten a 9 probably.  The problem with the reviewer is, from his attitude he went into his review to purposely seek out the negatives in the game, with barely looking for anything positive.  He didn't play the game right he didn't put any effort forth to try and get the motion controls right.  He shouldn't of reviewed this game at all if he didn't even put any effort to play it correctly.

So you're saying Gears 3 doesn't deserve such a high score just because it took "only " 3 years for it to come out after Gears 2?

As a former GameSpot employee, I thought I'd offer my perspective, since I know what the reviewers go through. Tom knows his stuff, is professional, and takes his role seriously. I'm also confident that, for such a big and beloved franchise, his score was thoroughly reviewed by his editors, and he had to convince him that he was right. To put it another way, he would have had to build a certain amount of consensus around his score. GameSpot puts the reviewer's name at the end of its reviews because they want to make clear that the review is the *site's* opinion, it just happened to be written by a single person.

Most of the people posting here haven't played the game yet. If you haven't and you are calling Tom an idiot, you're the definition of a fanboy - there's no other explanation. I personally love Zelda, don't care if it's formulaic, and will pick up this game regardless of the review. I expect/hope to disagree with Tom's opinion. But I'm willing to consider his perspective valid.

The world doesn't have to agree and I think the industry's monotony is part of the problem, I wish there was *less* of a herd mentality. The review world also agreed on GTA IV as a masterpiece, I thought it was interesting but wasn't fun, and there's no way I would've given it the scores others gave it - I think they got sucked up in the hype. Other M also got solid reviews and then suddenly people woke up and decided it wasn't that great. That can happen to any game - and until we play it, we don't know.

As for GS giving the original Zelda a 7.2, that's not quite true. They were reviewing it on the Wii version, and judging it by today's standards. If you wipe away nostalgia and play that game as a modern one, it's hard to imagine giving it a higher score than that.

Exactly

Well, games are expensive and there are SO MANY coming out, so filtering stuff by reading reviews helps ME, but if they are misleading....I suddenly feels so...lonely....

I hope that none of the guys who made and participated in the "Uncharted 3 gets "low" score, meltdown ensues" thread are in here complaining now... I thought only PS3 owners raged when their exclusives got "low" scores.
Why do people care so much about reviews anyway? The meta (for those who bother to think about such things) is still really, really good as well.
This is of no consequence to your enjoyment of the game, not in the least.

Do what I did a long time ago; screw reviews, decide for yourself.

I posted a video of a girl dressed as Link and playing Zelda songs with a violin… that’s where the name “Linka” came to mind :P

Could just be my biases, but i think we're handling this one better...

Valid complains?
He said the game doesn't use IR pointer well. The game doesn't use it at all!!


That's a case of poor research, but it doesn't change his experienece, is your opinion on a burger you don't like invalid if you don't know the method by which the cooks prepared it?  

I don't think if he knew the game used a different sensing method for aiming that he would have had a different experience trying to use it.  

Before we all get into the "you're just being negative" stuff this is the only point of the debate I am arguing against, I do not care about the rest of the review or defending it, just this point about how if you don't know how a game senses your actions your experience is invalid.

It depends on what he was using it for. If it's just something like menu selection, then there's really not that much of a difference between the control methods. He might have a point there.

However, there would be fundamental differences between bigger uses such as items. Something like flying would be completely changed if you thought you pointed to where you wanted to go instead of subtly shifting the Wiimote around. Since it wasn't being used right, it would appear clunky and poorly implemented. If that's the case, a better analogy would be you shove the burger up your nose and then complain how it tasted terrible.

Either way, they removed that part of the review.

Wasn't it Gamespot that marked Metroid Prime 3's score down because the controls were perfect. I remember it something like "Streamlined controls make the game too easy" . I think Metroid Prime 3 was the first Wii game that got FPS controls right. This game might not be perfect but there is absolutely no way it is a 7.5.

I remember this.   The controls are too good.  The game must be docked points.

Honestly though, I don't care what anyone scores a video game since I myself decide whether I like them or not.
