Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nano Assault Neo Reviews - Is Eurogamer too harsh on this one?

So, I find myself to agree with most of the scores Eurogamer dishes out, but I can't help but feel that they kinda missed the mark slightly with this one:

 

Since I haven't played the game yet but plan to pick it up I want to ask you guys, is this review representative of the game? Does it ring bells?

 

Ultimately, is it worth 10 bucks?



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

well I've purchased it, but due to it being finals week I've hardly had a chance to play it. I only got about 35 minutes clocked, but from that experience so far it's a well executed game easily worth $10.

It's a German game, presumably programmed by Nazis. Of course the score is fair.

Dear mod team, a bet must be clearly defined and have both sides agree to the terms, otherwise there is no bet. If you'd like to learn more about how bets work, feel free to send me a PM.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

That does seem low. I'm still a little peeved at the low scores that Halo 4 got. It hasn't left my 360, I've played the campaign through on Heroic and Legendary, and I look forward each week for the next Spartan Ops. It's my game of the year and yet it sits at below 90 on meta thanks to a couple hit seekers. I doubt Eurogamer is hit seeks and if they did it wouldn't be with a niche title like Nano Assault, but 40 seems far too low for what the reviewer admits isn't a bad game. Maybe the reviewer doesn't like shooters. If that's the case then they should find a reviewer that does. All the low Halo 4 scores were by people who wanted it to be more like COD. Video game journalism is in a sad state, that's for sure.

F u eurogamer!

.. Interested and will get this game.. maybe Eurogamer also thinks its suppose to be a FPS shooter like COD perhaps?.. just like how IGN reviewed zombiU with COD googles on.. and got disappointed it wasnt anything like COD.

 

The eurogamer review is ridicolous.



I actually haven't started this thread to bash eurogamer but to get some insightful input on the game. I purchased Shin'ens Fun! Fun! Minigolf and was pretty disappointed by the game so I don't think the developer is without flaw. I just don't want to step into the same turd twice.

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

it looks good to me but I will have to play it before say if it is worth the price or not

It says

"It is not a bad game in the conventional sense". To highlight only the first half of that sentence is silly.

It is clearly a bad game in an unconventional sense for this reviewer.

I'm not really here!
