Some reviews, like the 9.5 from Gamepur, are up all ready. However, that site does not appear to be used on metacritic

Here is the best trailer if you wish to get re-hyped

This will be fun, I hope they do well (70+)



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

So, we've got

15/20 from JVM
9.5/10 from Gamepur
GamePlane - 89/100

Not sure if any of them are on metacritic. I did a quick search for Gamepur and they don't seem to be



I repeat what I said in another thread: reviews released early are probably made for clicks of these sites to gather attention before the big wave of reviews arrive. That said, released reviews are better than many expected.

If reviewer understands the goal of this game then its surely score a minimum of 8 otherwise it going to be mixed based on what the reviewer like in games.



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

What does a goal of a game do to its fun or value? I will repeat my example from yesterday:

A dev-team wants to make a new racing-game. In doing so they decide the most crucial part of the racing game is not steering, it's accelerating and breaking. They let everyone in the public know about it so nobody can say they didn't know what was coming. Now the devs achieve a level of graphics no one has ever seen before in a racing game, everything is jaw-dropping. They even manage to make the accelerating and breaking extremely difficult and challenging, millimeters are crucial in every corner of your trigger buttons.

But in the end it's a beautiful looking racing game where you only accelerate or break.

Now the devs achieved exactly what they wanted to but how would you rate this game, compared to other racing games? I know this is an exaggeration but how does the goal/vision add anything to what the game is in the end?
