Way too many games are being released unfinished and unpolished. People paying full launch price for a game and not being able to enjoy many of it's features is just inexcusable. You are going to charge for a beta, fine let people no that up front. So yes, they should have dropped their review score and so should everyone else. The game is a mess.

It's just too easy for the developer to release an unfinished game and patch it later. Hardly any backlash so they keep doing it.


This is why people really should appreciate Nintendo more and more. Nintendo's quality control is the best in the industry. You never see crap like this on a Nintendo system. And it is not just Sony being singled out. This crap has to stop. These companies need to stop worrying about meeting quarterly profit expectations and rushing games out. I used to buy a ton of games upon release. Now I buy very few. I'm tired of buying incomplete games and paying full price. I'd rather wait a few months, get the finished product, and save $20 bucks.

Behold...THE FUTURE! Gotta love how people defend and celebrate the rise of online centric console gaming. Back in the PS2 days, games released fully tested and AAA were never totally broken. Now it's common place and people actually defend it. 

I think the hardest thing to deal with when you have a high IQ, is accepting that 90% of the population doesn't.



this was the only good thin g that come out from that site



 

Uh...this isn't the first game they have done this. They revised the score of Battlefield 4 after it came out, so this is nothing new.  I think this is great and totally makes sense to do.

Does Polygon have the right to have a credible opinion about anything? No.



Who cares? It's being a long time since Polygon lost their credibility.

Since that cheque from Microsoft...

I love the fact that developers can fix small glitches and get input from players to improve the experience. Testers can't catch every glitch and being able to patch out the ones that are missed is great. Having to patch an entire game because it is broken is just ridiculous. Quite frankly, having to patch in weather effects is ridiculous as well. The game was not ready to be released. Plain and simple. Just like Battlefield 4, it is going to be months before the game is truly complete...and that is just sad. But like you stated, people keep defending it, keep buying broken crap, and the cycle continues.

But that is not true, the PS2 had games with some horrible bugs, Soul Calibur III had a bug that could delete or corrupt all your savefiles on your memorycard..I would say that it was probably the worst bug that you can have as a gamer but hardly anyone knows it because it maybe only affect 10% of the players and most of us were not very active on the internet yet and did not knew the bug.  today you only need 10 pictures/videos of a malfunction of a console or bug from a game and the game will be called unplayable by gamers...
