I guess you missed the 2,000,000 replies saying that this is FAKE!



Oh true

OMG I have been called an xbot. Thats awesome. The problem with this is that I have a PS3 and have been called a Sony fanboy a million times by Nintendo fans. I will reference your post when someone calls me a sony fanboy the next time.

PS: My problem is that I like the 360 game lineup better. I am historically a PC gamer after all. But the 360 is ugly as hell, has terrible quality and I wanted a BluRay drive. So I have the black monolith below my TV. That doesn't mean that I cannot critizise japanese games with 9 hours of cutscenes and more pathos than a eulogy .

Scores

Ninja Gaiden II: A, A-, A- (Game of the Month)

Pros: Visceral combat, video mode

Cons: Corny cut scenes, awkward camera

 

Anyone know what this means, "video mode"?

This is huge. NG2 getting Game of the month over MGS4. Not so much that it tells us a lot about the qualities of MGS4 (I'm sure the reviews will be brilliant overall), but that this indicates that NG2 might become a sleeper hit.

I didn't believe much in NG2 before this. But now, perhaps it is a +90% title that can sell 1.5 million copies. Maybe even get close to 2 million?

Havent you heard? 1.5mil is a flop.

I believe that is the mode where you can record your favorite combos & moments of the game then send it to your friends to brag.

Ninja Gaiden II has corny cutscenes and MGS4 has some of the most well-produced cutscenes in gaming history and they still perfered NGII. They were obvously drunk when they wrote those reviews.

If you people took the time to read the thread it came from you would see that those scores were from a preview. Plus they only played through the 1st level. So I guess the first level has more cutscenes than gameplay.

Lock the thread!!

I couldn't agree more.



Well, being that I haven't played either NG2 and MGS4, I can't really disagree or agree with EGM's choice (don't know if it's real or not). But, it's not like something like they've never picked a less popular game over a more popular game for GOTM honors (Halo vs Orange Box). But Yeah, I wonder what the B+ guy said about MGS4?

BTW: It's NOT IMPOSSIBLE to presume that NG2 may be just as good as MGS4 or better, NG is a good series folks. Games with more hype don't always win (in terms of reviews), with that said, just because a game is "reviewed" better than another it doesn't mean that the other game is garbage. I swear, people care more about brand superiority and fanboy arguments than actually enjoying games these days.
