Well either way the PC version is months off. Definitely not spending $60 on this 😆
But no, the score is irrelevant. The text is
So if the text in so called 5/5 review is well written with nice phrases like 'delivers on all fronts', 'worthwhile', 'feels good to play', 'genre-pushing', then?
I suppose what I am saying is why do you choose to place so much stock in a single 2/5 review and not on other views too?
What do you mean “so much stock”? I replied to that post because whoever posted it said it’s a very well written review (I’d have read it soon anyway since it’s Giant Bomb). It’s not as if I’m deciding to pass on buying the game on PC or PS4 because of that review. I’ve read a lot of the glowing reviews as well and even a lot of them talk about how underwhelming the narrative and/or the gameplay are.
Furthermore I’ve replied to a few people here upset about the scores or how reviews work and told them to find reviewers they trust and rely on those. I practice what I preach, and Giant Bomb is one of my favorite places for reviews and podcasts. I’ve also gotten into Easy Allies the last couple years because of their podcasts and iirc they gave it an 8 but also complained about many gameplay elements. I don’t care about what some gushing A+ review from Gaming Age says and I didn’t read the 3.5 out of 10 score either because I put zero stock in those websites.
The reviewers I do trust have big issues with gameplay and also some of the narrative as well. And for those reasons, I’m out. Shark Tank!
