Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Tales of Symphonia DotNW Review - 6.7 Im still buying it.=)

Yeah, we really shouldn't be too surprised. It wasn't even made by the orginal team and it's more of a spin off than a real sequel.

I don't really see anything 'wrong' with the game from this review other than it's an RPG and some of the stuff went over his head so he's going to be pissy about it.

I think that the game being linear is a poor complaint as there's really nothing wrong with a game being linear. Now the convoluted story complaint is valid complant since the story is a mess and therefore, very hard to understand and enjoy. Also, the reviewer saying "that some of the dialouge makes no sense" might imply that the localization is terrible.

 



Confirmed: Mainstream sites are so biased against the Wii that they're now knocking Wii games for things that they wouldn't knock PS360 games for.

Case in point: This game v. Tales of Vesperia. Vesperia is basically the same game we've played 100 times before too, but it inexplicably got a much higher review score.



"'Casual games' are something the 'Game Industry' invented to explain away the Wii success instead of actually listening or looking at what Nintendo did. There is no 'casual strategy' from Nintendo. 'Accessible strategy', yes, but ‘casual gamers’ is just the 'Game Industry''s polite way of saying what they feel: 'retarded gamers'."

Ever heard of Blue Dragon?

And maybe, just maybe, Vespersia is better? But no, it can't be. IGN is biased, that's the only explanation.



I dont' think people are complaining about them rating it average but the hypocritical bias as the reasoning. That they don't mind knocking down this title for being stereotypical but all the other various games that have exactly the same "cons" are rated without that. Hell GTA IV got a 10 with those qualities. It's just not right. They could have reviewed it with that same score and not have mentioned that and I would have been fine with it... but that reasoning is bullshit.

DAMN I cant wait for their review on COD: WAW right now and we knew there are things to complain about on that game :) *sarcasm*



end of core gaming days prediction:

 

E3 2006-The beginning of the end. Wii introduced

 

E3 2008- Armageddon. Wii motion plus introduced. Wii Music. Reggie says Animal crossing was a core game. Massive disappointment. many Wii core gamers selling their Wii.

 

E3 2010- Tape runs out

I'm listening to the podcast right now, and Daemon didn't played the first one. The reasons he mentions are acceptable. He just expected more, and for him was too linear with no much freedom to explore.



Castlevania Judgment FC:     1161 - 3389 - 1512

3DS Friend Code:   3480-2746-6289


Wii Friend Code: 4268-9719-1932-3069

much lower then I thought it would get, but oh well, it's just one review.

If this review trend continues I'll still play this eventually, but I just won't rush out to buy it.

On another Tales note, I'm currently playing Legendia and it's been pretty fun thus far.



No comments from Soriku, where is he? :P
