and i hardly know anyone who loves armored core. which of both is now better? is that really a proof of you that mechassault got only better reviews because it's exclusive? and you meant that sony doesn't get good reviews for good games so you think uncharted, the last of us, killzone 2, god of war III, ico & shadow of the colossus and so on are bad but other games which got bad reviews are so good? which ones?
I didn't say anyone had to love Armored Core, I just made the statement that it's better than Mechassault. I've played both, but whether you've played them or not, just watch a video and it's quite clear. I used Armored Core as reference simply because it's a good underrated shooter with robots, and because I was going to point out Mechassault and it's high review score.
I also never said Sony doesn't get good reviews. I just said that journalists don't drop to their knees and virtually felate them. Sony games never seem to get the same free passes for having issues that many other game developers do. Nintendo releases Wii Sports, a tech demo. Sony releases Sports Champions 2 which has all the same games as Wii Sports and more, has more control to it, and gets a much lower score. GTA5 launched with broken online and the online is still poor even though actually working now, but it's Rockstar, let's give them a pass because it's GTA. Twisted Metal launched much earlier and all of its low review scores are because of how difficult it was to get in games online, even though the online worked well once you got in a room.
Also, it's common that Nintendo portable games get a free pass for not being as good as console games. Some first party, some third party. Vita games were brought up in another thread if you remember it because of this. The exact same games not just portable versions that played worse, were being directly compared to the console version and given a much lower score based on graphics alone. Just as an example. IGN scored MLB13 The Show 8.8 on PS3, 7.6 on Vita because the Vita version had worse graphics than the PS3 version.
