Ummm...ok, but I can't tell whether you're saying it's too high or too low.

I agree.

 

I mean... I personally hate the Rythem Genre.  Seeing it as the Quick time action events from action games combined with cheesy music.

But because of that I wouldn't really challenge the scoring in it.

I had no idea that Hilary was a guy's name... Oh wait... It Isn't is it?

More of the same is what I basically got from the review... which is what GH4 will probably get ponts taken off for. From what he said, RB2 sounds more like an expansion than a new game...

BTW, this guy must suck at GH/RB, cuz none of the expert stuff looked even hard even tough he said it was much harder and would "test you" ;P

The Guitar controller still looks bad to me...

Exactly! Garnet on 1UP made a great point about that in a Podcast a while ago.

GH:WT instruments look better and Im positive that it will be the better of the two. Of course Metacritic will say otherwise.

 

 

So you're just going off of a gut feeling?

 

Obviously, hes only played a demo of Rock Band, probably feels hes too 1337 for it, so he sticks with GH and praises it. Tell you what OP, maybe Hillary gave it that score because it deserves it. Ever think of that?

 

When the hell did I "praise" Guitar Hero???

No he gave Assasins creed a 7 and GTA a 10. That is fucking ridicilous and whenever hes on a podcast he talks shit about Wii and PS3 and is one of the many graphic whores.

This game has not made enough improvments over the 1st to get such a high score.

Anyways its just an opinion I dont give a shit anymore dont feel like arguing anymore.

Have you ever played Rock Band? It's a great game, not sure why you are so surprised about this score.

A demo. But ive been reading up and theres barely anything that different. The new things GH:WT is doing are better.

@trestres
Yea

@Onyxmeth's
Too high. Shouldve gotten in the 8's Hilary give GTA a 10 IU a 7 and RB2 9 and Asassins creed a 7. That just doest add up imo.

 

 

...this is why the internet is great, because people like you are here to make it interesting.  First of all, you've never even played Rock Band 2 and you've decided the score IGN (people who've actually played the game) gave it is too high.  Oh, and you've decided Guitar Hero: World Tour is doing better things but it's another game you haven't played.  Very good.

Why not just be quiet, give the illusion you have knowledge of the games, and wait until they both come out before you decide which one is better?

Why are people surprised about the score? Rock Band 1 is sitting at 92 on MetaCritic. I thought the score was a little low to be perfectly honest.



gta got 10
metal gear got 10
ssbb ? 9 or 10 ? dunno something in that range
RANCHET AND CLANK A FREEKIN 9.SOMETHING ?!
if i go on ill never end
rachet and clank review was laughable, i stopped reading reviews for a reason :P
especially uncharted that feels like a n64 game ? u compare that with folklore ? folklore deserves a 10

Maybe because it is fun as ****.  And isn't that what reviews should be about.  Entertainment value.  And that is what video games are all about.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was fun as ****. What score did it receive on different review sites? :/

I'm predicting that Rock Band 2 will score high as an EXPANSION, but Guitar Hero: World Tour will score lower because it's a SEQUEL. Pretty stupid if you ask me!

 



Random game thought :
Why is Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 getting so much hate? We finally get a real game and they're not even satisfied... I'm starting to hate the gaming community so f****** much...

Watch my insane gameplay videos on my YouTube page!

Different people have different idea of what "fun" is.... to make someone buy a sequel to a game with absolutely nothing new to add is disappointment at best. And to reward the game with a 9 is just further picking-in -the-ball to any other companies who actually worked out to make their second game better (Epic, Naughty Dog....)

I happen to think there are plenty of new features in the game.  The online challenges and online World Tour were enough to warrent a purchase from me.  It is apparent that this reviewer had a 9 level amount of fun with the game.  Of course people have different ideas about what is fun, that is why you should never completely base your decisions on someone else's.  Glean what you want from something and then make your own decision about it.
