Forums - Sony Discussion - PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale review thread

I'm guessing it's a review embargo thing since IGN mentions their review will be up tomorrow but I can't wait to see how the game gets reviewed. Of course, I'm buying it no matter what but I'm really hoping it does well both in reviews and in sales.

Anyone found an early review of the game in some dark corner of the Internet?

 

EDIT:

Review embargo over!

Metacritic :74 (19 reviews)

Blessed is he, who in the name of decency and good discussion, stays on topic through the valley of cheap shots, for he is truly his forum's keeper and the finder of lost quality.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to flame and troll other users.

It will probably sell 200k ~ 300k first week. It will probably average a 80 meta. That being said, I have not found a single review.

PSN ID: CaptainKurtz. Games regularly played: PSABR, Tekken TT2, SSX.

Faith is for the weak. 

When is it even coming out? :O

November 20th, so tomorrow. In comparison, Hitman: Absolution, which releases tomorrow as well, has 22 reviews already.

Well IGN is giving it a 9 and the metascore will be 84. Aldo reviewed it at 8. Plus you can check my sig.



Around the Network
I predict 85 - 87 metascore.

Was there a leak of some kind or is that your prediction?

I, know, everything. And they reviewed the game during the livestream. All I needed to do was add a score to their words.



80-85 metacritic in total.

Worst case scenario: 75-80.

I wont be surprised if there are bias/random reviews on metacritic that would lower the score even more.

Seriosly though has anybody seen any advertisements for this game?  I don't believe very many people even realize it is getting released tomorrow?
