DIGITAL SPY just gave it a 8, not looking good.

You hold that much stake in one reviewer? His heaviest complaint was that he needs glasses and a near mirroring of the old "Zelda has too much water" meme.

I sincerely hope you’re joking. It has a 95 Metascore. What’s not looking good about that?

Lowers the probability of the game maintaining a 95+ score ... (everybody wants to keep this being a gem in memory)

maybe he means that GoW is in danger of dropping to 94 with that, as there are signs pointing to more "low" reviews coming in



Managed to get myself to nap for two hours with the use of some pain pills. Time for an all nighter. 10 minutes to go. Damn, I feel quiet the giddy child on the inside.

I know what you meant and I still think it’s utterly ridiculous. 94. 95. Why does it matter so much?

I understand why it matters to people, actually one person summed it up nicely somewhere in this thread as it's the difference between being the top listed this gen or the third over a remaster and multiplat. Standard stuff for a forum on a video game website. One list to rule them, one list to find them, One list to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

That said, it's got a better score than the Witcher 3 that's all the scoring I need to know it's a masterpiece.

it doesn't matter - the game received superb critical acclaim either way, yet speculating about whether or not it can hold on to the 95 was a popular topic in this and other review threads around the internet



Well there is still 20 something reviewers left, so this could go in any direction and looking at some past few releases, GOW could be get bumped up once, PS AUS, UK and Benelux review it and that's not counting other sites that favor PS games that are left, its likely going to retain its 95, so dont stress yourselves out alright you guys just think positive. Remember yall good vibes, good thoughts = good results.



I just think people put too much emphasis on it. It’s a score, and high one at that. Makes no difference if it’s a 94 or 95. Not trying to be mean, but folks take it too seriously.
